Probably my all time favorite scent. I've been fascinated with Coco since I first saw the black & white Ines de la Fressange ads in Seventeen magazine when I was young. It was the first grown up scent I asked for at 16 - and my parents, who didn't know the difference between EDT/EDP/Parfum bought me the parfum because I said I wanted 'Coco Perfume'! It was the most amazing …Read more
Did you know that this is based on baked apples? Well, that's what I read, anyway. Bet it will make a few of you want to try it for fall, though ;) Personally, I really like it. It is a mild foody-spice scent, a bit heavy on cinnamon on top, but dries down to a hint of something baked...like brown sugar crumbly pastry. I also prefer the refillable 50 ml bottle style (matte metallic colour …Read more
Review for the EDP - I tried this about a year or so ago, and couldn't stand it. I suspect that I wasn't able to appreciate it at all, same as a lot of other scents I have been able to rediscover recently. It still starts out rather powdery floral on the first few minutes, acquires a lovely sharp note - most likely the anise? while still managing to be soft. A cool yet soft scent …Read more
Super product for those of you with short lashes, like me. Most mascara, including the lengthening ones, tend to work on the assumption you already have longish lashes. This lengthens short lashes without clumping on smudging, lasts about 8 hours without needing to touch up the skin below your eyes if you have oily skin (always a previous prob with most other mascaras for me). Just makes you look …Read more
Great product. A perfect combination of a sheer blush/bronzer/highlighter. if most bronzers are too heavy for you, try this one. Looks rather murky in the case, so best to try it first. Can be applied sheerly or built up. A super 'combination' effect product.
A really fresh/wet scent, but way too similiar to Eau de Cartier to warrant buying a big bottle, imo - are these both by Jean-Claude Ellena? That would certainly explain things. Angeliques has a slightly sharper, crisper edge to it which stands out to my nose, while the Cartier blends slightly better with my chemistry. A beautiful creation nevertheless.
Highly underrated scent, imo. Reminds me of the scent favorite gum, by Lotte of Japan - Umeboshi (sour plum). A soft, sweet, but slighty sour edged fruity floral, but different to the average type. Hard to find anything but testers in the UK (those can be found at fragrancedirect for about £9.99), but at most US online discount places, they have sealed boxes of this, for about $25. Absolutely …Read more
