I am a Chicago native living in Minnesota! I love trying new beauty trends - makeup, skin care and natural curl care. Winged eyeliner, lippies and high end fragrance are my weaknesses. Trying out k-beauty trends!
Yes yes yes! I'm obsessed with Rose and this came with a Sephora order. It wans't the one I requested but it turned out for the best. This is one of the freshest and least stuffy Rose fragrances I have ever smelled. It lasts forever too and I always receive compliments when I am wearing it!
I am a lover of perfumes but I am picky about what I wear and what I purchase. I received this with a Sephora order as a sample. It is perfect for the Spring and Summer months so it came just in time. The initial smell is fresh and sweet but not in an immature or cloying way. Then the neroli blooms come through and it smells like your are outside on one of those sweet and warm days. Definitely buying the full size after I get through this.
Fragrance and perfumes are definitely a hobby for me and the perfumes that stick with me the most have a story or memory that goes along with the scent. I received a sample of this in my Sephora Play box. The smell instantly reminded me of putting on my grandmother's lipstick at her vanity when was young and she was getting ready to go out. It's not a fragrance I would wear everyday but it absolutely captures the moment it intends to. Its very powdery and soft and last a long time on the skin.
I don't usually buy body spray - it doesn't last that long and the fragrances are usually a bit sweet or fruity for my taste. I smelled this one randomly the last time I was at VS and was surprised with how clean and fresh the fragrance really was (good name). It doesn't feel too young for me and I can put on a good amount without it being overpowering. I see myself using this a lot during the summer months after spending time on the beach when I want a quick freshen up scent but nothing too heavy. The price is right too - I have been using it for a while and still have plenty of left and can easily wait for a good sale to get more.
Over the past year, I realized how much I love Rose as a fragrance and ingredient for beauty and skincare. I always thought it was a stuffy and mature fragrance but in a way that wasn't appealing to me. Products like this one have completely changed my mind. The Rose fragrance is fresh and natural with the most seductive finish. This is a good size bottle for a high quality rose fragrance - I just wish it lasted a bit longer.
I came across this in a magazine and swiped it on just to try. I received no less than 5 compliments and questions that day on what I was wearing. I would get whiffs of the sweet honey floral blossom smell as I moved or in the wind and It was an instance treat. The smell is sweet but in a mature way that smells natural - not cloying.
This is the fragrance I had been looking for. It reminds me of a salty ocean beach with a fragrant bonfire with light sandalwood smoke in the air. This reminds me of a mature and vibrant summer scent. The fragrance has lasting power like nothing else I have ever tried. One spray lasts all day and ensures at least three questions on what I am wearing. It is pricey but a little goes a long way.
Wow! Jo Malone is a recent discovery for me as a perfume lover and this is possibly one of my favorites of the line. This is a great everyday fragrance for Spring and Summer. It is light and fresh and smells like a fresh bloomed flower in fresh air and sunlight. It reminds me of the smell of someone coming in from the outdoors in Spring/Summer. This is worth the cost.
I have tried most of the Tocca perfumes but this one is unfortunately not a win for me. The bottle is beautiful like the others in this line but the scent doesn't evoke any interest for me. It is slightly spicy and musky but doesn't have enough of a signature that stays with me. Tocca Stella is my preference for this price point.
