Fragrances - Parfums de Coeur - Skin Musk

5.0

Do not be fooled by the silly name and even cheesier packaging! This is not your typical loud brash musk. It is very subtle, smelling of a powdered lavender when first applied and then drying down to a light sandalwood creaminess. It lasts all day long and is delicate enough to be worn with other perfumes. I like to layer this with a gardenia sometimes for added allure. When worn alone it smells …Read more

Fragrances - Coty - Jovan Island Gardenia

It's worth another accolade for being one of the best summer perfumes as well. I buy a bottle every year. Don't waste your money on the Marc Jacobs or Chanel if you are looking for an exotic white floral true gardenia potion. Island Gardenia is the real deal at the low price of $10. Used *with a light hand*, this smells like heaven. It makes me think of classy ladies of the 1940s with …Read more

Fragrances - CB I Hate Perfume - At the Beach 1966

A perfect summertime fragrance. It smells true to it's name. The first thing I think of is the original Coppertone sunscreen in the pink bottle. It is definitely a floral scent first and foremost, but I do detect a hint of wet sand and saltiness underneath the Coppertone. It makes me think of childhood days spent at St Simons Island, Georgia. We would play in the salty waves all day long …Read more

Do you like apples? Do you love the fall? This is the smell of biting into a crisp tangy Granny Smith apple with just a whisper of mint in the air. I think I could only really wear this during a few weeks in September or October when the moon was in Libra. If you like fresh fruit perfumes you will love this.

Dragon's Claw is the one that I have taken to carrying in my makeup bag. Although it is also based in sandalwood, this one contains dragon's blood, a resin from a kind of tree found in the Canary Islands. If you like wood based oriental scents, you may love this.

Queen of Sheba smells of almonds and sandalwood, with some cream and honey notes. It would also make a great summery beach smell for a bohemian lady. It makes me feel like I am laying about in a beautiful Middle Eastern palace being waved with palm fronds.

I don't know if anyone else remembers an oil called Kokonolo. It was the most amazing smell of all time. If they ever bring this one back, they will have a loyal customer in me for life.

Fragrances - Lancaster - Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker ] [DISCONTINUED]

I really wanted to like Covet, I had heard such intriguing things about it. On the first spray I definitely smelled the bitter greens and lavender. Thankfully that died down about 15 minutes later and the chocolate and honeysuckle notes came out to play. This was a lovely combination actually and I kept sniffing my arm. It dried down to an almost nonexistant ambery powder.

I will …
