This has been my "go to" perfume for the last three years. I love the floral and fruity smell! It's like heaven in a bottle. I often times get compliments from strangers who say "oh, that must be your perfume I smell. It's amazing! What kind is it?!" I'm more than happy to share my secret. The best part is that the smell lasts all day. Sometimes when I come home from work my husband will compliment me on how good I smell....even though by then I've gone "nose blind" and can't smell it any longer.
I've used other brands in the past, and still have some of them in my cabinet, but I always seem to reach for the Bright Crystal first (and always feel a little deflated if I choose another). My Mom has worn the same perfume for as long as I can remember...and I'm pretty sure that the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree on this one! As long as they make Bright Crystal, it will be in my perfume collection.
eos® Smooth Sphere Lip Balm : First of all, I think that the lip balm itself deserves 5 stars! It goes on smooth, has a great smell and lasts about as long as any other balm on the shelf. It helps keep my lips very soft, which, let's be honest, is pretty much the only reason to ever buy lip balm. Ha. But I hate the shape. To me, the sphere is awkward. You can't put it in your jeans pocket. It rolls around in your car. As you use the balm it flattens out and becomes a very large flat surface. And the container itself is annoyingly big - especially for the side of me who leans towards minimalism. For pre-teens or the annoying 22 year old you just hired at your new office, this is probably great. But for mature women just trying to keep their lips from getting sunburnt, chapped, cracked or dry...this just isn't the balm you're looking for.
