Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Boyfriend - Boyfriend Pulse Point Oil

Smoky,spicy,mystical,warm,smooth,woodsy,sensual,yummy! it continues to grow on me...it took a little while,but I am hooked! I love the softness of the pulse point oil.
I LOVE THIS!!! I picked up the rollerball at Sephora with the dual vials of poppy and poppy flower without even trying it out.I purchased it based on great reviews and I am not dissapointed! both scents are clean,fresh,and uplifting.The rollerball is great for your bag and bang for the buck!
Breast milk and the bottom of an empty bowl of cereal...yuck...had they added just a pinch of more sweetness,this might have been decent!
The scent is a bitter orange blossom that smells better when blended with tuscan blood orange (both in the solid forms)
Fragrances -Pacifica - Malibu Lemon Blossom Spray Perfume

The great thing about Pacifica is that you can mix and match their fragrances.I love Malibu lemon blended with neroli orange and mango grapefruit.Try this! you just might love it.The lemon is sooo clean and refreshing and fairly long lasting! I know people complain that these scents do not have much staying power,but they are very natural and free of the chemicals found in dept.store perfumes.
This is their top selling fragrance.I like it in the solid form and I mix it with malibu lemon blossom.The staying power is not great,but it's worth it to carry the tin with you and reuse throughout the day! Pacifica uses natural ingredients and unfortunately,natural does not last as long as synthetic.Layering the shower gel,body butter and perfume really helps the scent to endure...
i gave it 5 even though it doesn't last long! but hey it smells DELICIOUS!!! perfect for summer,as most vanilla scents are too strong in the heat.with this one,you can pack it in a bag to the beach,shake it up and spray it allover,as much as you want to.i like to spray it on the ends of my hair,it adds extra shine!!! yummmmmy!!! i am certain that vanilla lace fans must like this one as well...
i KNOW good quality fragrances! i am a collector of gourmande scents and this version of vanilla is 5 stars! pure,creamy,no-nonsense vanilla,perfect for those who adore foody scents! it compares with comptoir sud pacifique,but the price is much better...if you like victoria's secret vanilla lace or beauty rush "slice of heaven" you will LOVE this one...
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Black Raspberry Vanilla Lotion

i loved the packaging for the new hand cream and i thought: "raspberries and vanilla?" HOW can you go wrong! i didn't even bother to smell it...big mistake! it smells way too perfumey and overpowering,yuck!!!! i exchanged it for WVS...
very like the flower!!! i love this mixed with the tuscan blood orange from the same line...very pure and refreshing!!!
i am really shocked that this was not done better! i don't dislike it but it does have a muted aura about it...it's not sweet enough,if you are a big vanilla fan you might prefer "amorito" from the body shop or V.S. vanilla lace! i wore this pacifica vanilla vera cruz and my friends son wondered aloud "WHAT SMELLS LIKE PLAY-DOUGH?" and THAT'S what it smells like: play dough and chalky mylanta tablets...
i just bought this from ROSS discount store! i was glancing at the perfume case and happened to see the adorable candy swirl box it comes in and recognized the name PINK SUGAR from sephora and realized it happens to have a cult following...at $20.00 i felt i couldn't go wrong! i love foody scents! this is complex and very strong at first spritz,almost too perfumey but it mellows nicely and lasts,it reminds me of angel but it has a CLONE called CALGON MARSHMALLOW!!!!! it is the SAME scent but less intense,i actually prefer the marshmallow and will save pink sugar for winter...

this is my second fave body butter,my HG being the coconut! but i love the brazil nut too,it's yummy and has wonderful moisturizing ability,once you have started using body butter it's hard to accept anything else...
Fragrances -The Body Shop - Aztique Eau de Toilette

i don't know why i overlooked this one! i am devoted to the body shop,and yet i never gave this a second glance! today i tried it and LOVED it,i got it to go with amorito,the chocolate scent-they sell them in pairs: 2 for $26.00 the fruity notes in aztique compliment amorito,but it also smells amazing over white musk and vanilla oil...aztique is luscious,complex and delicious!!!
this is a clean,soft,lovely floral that is not overwhelming! it is so light,you might not believe it's perfume...it's more like a body mist! i bought a mini bottle at walmart for $5.99 and it is a great treat to carry in my purse!
