Smelling great for a new year.

Since I was a teenager, I have been a huge fan of body sprays and mists. Bath and Body Works is my weakness. I cannot walk past that store without going in and I cannot go in that store without buying something. I think there should be support groups for that sort of thing. Anyhoo, I never had worn perfume because I preferred the soft and whispy hint of scent given by body sprays rather that the bold statement I saw perfumes as parading around as. That was – until this past month in which I feel head of heals over two perfumes that I have been wearing since opening them. And I wanted to share these with you.

First we have Vera Wang’s Lovestruck Floral Rush. This is a 2012 perfume that I had sampled way back that year. You know the drill. You go into a department store; they attack your senses at the beauty counters. This one, I didn’t mind. I just couldn’t bring myself to pay so much. Going from a $12 Body Mist I could coupon down to $5 vs a $40 bottle of perfume. I couldn’t wrap my head around it. But! With luck and wonder, I received this as a gift for Christmas. I was ecstatic. I feel so fancy now with my first true blue – not a sample size – bottle of perfume. Like an adult!

Scent: Champagne accord, apricot blossom, pink passion flower, cashmere woods, sheer musk, pink pepper, marigold, freesia and white amber.

Second, Victoria’s Secret Sheer Love Eau de Toilette.  I went into Victoria’s Secret right before Christmas with the intent of restocking on Love Spell which has been my favorite VS scent for a very long time. I have to say… it’s very dangerous to browse because I spotted this bottle. I noticed pink lily stated on the front and, being one of my favorite flower scents, I decided to try a spritz. It’s a very soft scent which I really enjoy. It doesn’t over power your senses but it lingers longer than a body spray would. There is a downside to this one as the lotion, body wash, and other products of the same scent didn’t smell the same! It wasn’t just me. I had a friend see if I was going crazy but she assured me I wasn’t. Either the eau de toilette is off or else everything else is but I didn’t enjoy the other products at all while I was wrapped in delight over this little bottle. I bought a small 1 oz bottle in case I later regretted my decision. I have not!

Scent: Fresh white cotton and luminous pink lily.
