Hi, dolls!

After my post on Monday which featured the new arrangement of some of my favorite scents, I was inspired to do a post dedicated exclusively to some scents that I'm coveting and loving right now. I think it can sometimes be overwhelming to shop for that perfect scent, and believe me I've purchased some pretty lack-luster smells in my time. I think it's important to think about what works for you, not necessarily what's popular at the time. I recommend experimenting with scents, try something that you wouldn't normally be attracted to, and own it. Perfume can change my mood (and attitude!) with one little spritz!








Are any of these your favorites?

I would love for you to leave your picks in the comments. I'm always on the hunt for a new or hidden-treasure scent.

Happy Wednesday, dolls!

With some Mother's Day money, I bought a fragrance I've never had before, but one sniff jolted me so much I had to have it: Chanel Chance Eau Tendre. It has just the right mix of floral and sophistication. I'm LOVING it!

Coach Poppy is a good one!

My all-time favorite is Chanel Chance. Recently though, I wear Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Union Square more frequently. I grew up with a mom who loves great frangrances, so love trying new ones!

Happy Wednesday! xoxo

I fond most perfumes smell too much of alcohol or something. Just a very synthetic scent usually. I prefer fruity scents, like Yves Rocher's Plaisirs Nature line. And my absolute all-time favorite perfume is Lolita Lempicka's L. I get so many compliments when I wear it! Just a whiff of it makes me happy. Gotta love the power of perfume, right?!

Hi sweets ... I love to go perfume shopping!! I really like Sephora because they have those strips you can spray without a department store clerk having to wait on you AND they'll put a sample of any scent in a little tester for you!! I've done that quite a few times! Happy Wednesday, love!
