Fragrances - Elizabeth Arden - True Love Eau de Toilette

Nov/12/2010

I bought this looking for a soft and light fragrance to wear at home, around my baby boy - nothing too strong for his sake! I've had a few elizabeth arden frags and found them very light and not too long lasting so thought i would try true love - i got a huge bottle for a tiny price - unfortunately the cap broke as soon as i got it home - not too impressive. The bottle is very dated and IMO …Read more

Now i'm at the end of my 50ml bottle, I thought i'd add my review of Pretty. I normally review perfumes almost as soon as i've worn them, but i've worn this on and off for a year and it hasn't made much of an impact on me. Its really nice - but just that - nice! on my skin, nothing special. A watery floral, very fresh but with little staying power. It does smell like a …Read more

i too got this as a GWP - not too impressed with it. it does smell pretty overwhelmingly fruity, its incredibly thick and sticky, not all that shiny, and has very little colour! i give it two lippies and not one, for its staying power - and even once it has more or less disapeared, my lips don't feel overly dry. not enough to rescue this one for me though, i think i'll be tossing it …Read more

having flirted with pleasures delight (love it but too similar to vera wang princess which i prefer) and pleasures intense, which to me smelt like incredibly fresh and lush plantlife - i.e. nice, but not "perfumey" enough, i decided it would be good to try the original pleasures, so i bought a little 15ml spray. i like it, but i dont find it to be anything special. on me its a very …Read more

on my skin, a very warm, soft and powdery rose. classic and feminine. i dont find this one all that complex, it doesnt alter that much on my skin. its a very lush rose scent, true to the flower - its not synthetic smelling at all. the bottle is pretty cute too.

Fragrances - Vivienne Westwood - Boudoir

To say its not a niche scent, boudoir is pretty damn pricey. definitely the most expensive fragrance i have ever owned. the packaging is just beautiful, from the box to the bottle. it just looks so rich, feminine and inviting. As for the scent itself, it starts out intensely sharp, which i find pretty unpleasant, the initial top note is a fierce blast. it mellows into a very sexy, feminine scent …Read more

I cant say i have particularly strong feelings about this fragrance, which is unusal for me. im not a big fan of the bottle, i prefer a more traditional aesthetic, and i find it pretty awkward to pick up and spray... the scent itself, is just ok on my skin, nothing 'wow'. it smells mostly creamy, mellow and vanillic, with a touch of something almost like mint or menthol. i guess from …Read more

Aug/29/2008

Ive had some hit and miss experiences with the vintage estee perfumes. i love beautiful, but hated youth dew and grew to dislike cinnabar. white linen, i guess is ok, but certainly not a favourite. what i do like about it, is that is smells very clean and crisp. what i dont like, is that on me it has that big, loud, generic "perfumey" scent that you tend to get with some of the older …Read more

Fragrances - Versace - Baby Rose Jeans

baby rose jeans, the slightly rarer little sister of the ubiquitous red jeans is well worth investigating if you enjoy truly girly fragrances. its very cheap for starters, i got 50mls for only £9.99. im not crazy about the frosted bottle, its very 90s, but what else do you expect? the fragrance itself if a very delicate, powdery rose scent with a hint of violet. reminds me of pastel colours …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - St. Ives - Vanilla & Vitamin E Moisturizing Body Wash

im not sure if a non-edible thing can really be yummy, but thats how i would have to describe this body wash! its such good value too. the scent is a pretty straight-up vanilla, but its not too synthetic-smelling like some cheaper vanilla toiletries can be. it lathers well and leaves my skin soft... i'd definitely buy it again for a basic vanilla hit...
