Burberry Brit for Women

Burberry Brit was released in 2003 and has earned much praise since its been on the market. A versatile scent that has a nice balance of notes that comes together in a light, and wearable gourmand fragrance. The opening has lime and green almond that works beautifully with the vanilla, amber, and tonka in the base. With a heart of peony and sugared almonds it exudes an effervescent sweetness.

Burberry Brit opens on the skin sparkling and sweet, with a nice crispness that helps balance out the journey to the dry down. When the fragrance dries down you lose some of the lime but it transforms into a sheer sweet almond fragrance with some cedar-like undernotes that play beautifully with the peony. These delicious gourmand elements work with the warmth of the base that creates a lovely scent on the skin that is sweet and substantial but doesnt become overbearing or to heavy. A perfect fragrance for gourmand lovers in the spring and summertime. It is a wearable beauty that is also appropriate for professional settings as well. A great addition to anyones collection.

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Perfume Review

Posted by Kristin West on Wed, 03/14/2018 - 8:08 PM

Tea fragrances are one of the most popular types of fragrances, especially green tea. You have Bvlgari Green Tea, Creed Acqua Originale Asian Green Tea and the cult classic Elizabeth Arden Green Tea, and it's numerous flankers.

When I think of green tea fragrances I instantly think of Green Tea from Elizabeth Arden. The nose behind this fragrance is the legendary Francis Kurkdjian, who is also the nose behind Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male, and My Burberry (and it's flankers) to name a few. He lends his talents to create a beautiful tea inspired fragrance loved by so many.

Green Tea is so loved because it is an effortlessly easy and beautiful fragrance. Top notes of Peppermint, Orange, Rhubarb, Bergamort and Lemon, middle Notes of Green Tea, Jasmine, Celery Seed and Carnation, and base notes of Musk, Fennel, Oakmoss, Caraway and White Amber. There is a lot going on in this fragrance, but it all blends together seamlessly and elegantly. 

These tea notes dance on your skin. Being slightly sweet, green and refreshing, it works beautifully in the spring and summertime. If you want something more fitted to cooler weather look to its many flankers. (I am particularly fond of Green Tea Exotic.) On top of the beautiful fragrance you get excellent longevity and sillage. It performs beautifully in any climate and is fitting for most daytime and casual evening occasions. The other wonderful thing about this fragrance is its price point - it's incredibly affordable for such a quality fragrance!

Being an avid lover of tea fragrances I could never overlook this gem, it's a cult classic for a reason - it is a magnificent fragrance!

YSL Mon Paris Perfume Review

Posted by Kristin on Mon, 02/05/2018 - 5:06 PM

There are a number of fragrances that come out that capture a beautiful balance of youthful joy and sophisticated femininity. YSL Mon Paris is one of those beauties. This is a sparkling mixture of beautiful white florals, delicious fruits, and delicate berries layered on a powerful base of oakmoss, amber, cedar, musk and patchouli.

It opens with a dazzling brightness from the citrus that lasts through the entire life of this fragrance. As it dries down on your skin you're left with a sweet feast of fruits and florals that get warmer and richer as the base starts to develop on your undeniable sophistication. As all this develops and the perfume  dances on your skin you never miss any of the joy and sparkle from the opening. This is a fragrance that puts a smile on your face and is a pure joy to wear. Perfect for bright spring days and nights, it's sparkle can be appreciated all year long and make you feel truly and powerfully feminine.
