Viktor & Rolf Bonbon and Flowerbomb Holiday 2016 Fragrance Makeover

Yes...Fragrance bottles get makeovers too and who other than Viktor & Rolf to show us how it's done for this holiday season. Bonbon and Flowerbomb - two of our cult favorites - are getting all dressed up for the holidays!

Let's call this flacon of Flowerbomb "Frozen Rose". It is getting dressed up in a pink (rose) crystal flacon in the style of frosted glass. The neck of the bottle is decorated with a feminine pink crystalize rose around it. The composition remains the same as original edition with top notes of bergamot, tea and osmanthus, middle notes of jasmine, rose orange blossom, freesia and orchid and base notes of patchouli and musk.

It is already available here in 50ml bottles and will be limited edition for this holiday season.

Bonbon gets dressed up with a pretty and pink double bow around its neck for this holiday season.   The composition remains the same as original edition with the melted creamy caramel, dripping Tahitian vanilla and syruped canned peaches. More specifically, the notes include mandarin, orange peach, orange blossom, jasmine, caramel, cedar, guaiac wood, sandalwood and amber. It has an 8 hour+ longevity and a memorable sillage.

Which one are you putting on your holiday wishlist?

Paco Rabanne Olympéa - A Scent Fit for the Gods - Fragrance Review and Giveaway

Rose Gold. I mean...there is a reason that I am obsessed with this color. Just look at Paco Rabanne's Olympéa Eau de Parfum.DSC00084 ccccBeautiful right? The second that I saw the images hit the internet I knew...this was going to be one of those bottles that I collect and showcase in my glam room. From the dusty rose gold to the glistening rose pink and even the warmer copper blend, the packaging is absolutely stunning.DSC00080 cccThe concept for Olympéa is based on the idea of a modern Greek goddess that evokes strength, dynamism and conquests. The bottle is shaped like a laurel crown and adorned with a jeweled cap. It is the female counterpart to the masculine Paco Rabanne Eau de Toilette Invictus, which was inspired by the athletic spirit, competition and victory. When I finally conquered my lust for the bottle, I sprayed it on my wrists for the first time and dare I say it but with that one spritz, I felt like a goddess of love and beauty. Move over Aphrodite!

The best way to describe this fragrance is to understand the unique fusion between a sensual salted vanilla accord and refreshing floral notes that highlight jasmine, ginger lily, citrus, woody and vanilla. On me, I find that it settles into nice white floral vanilla scent with a hint of sea salt that lasts about 7 hours before I need to reapply. 

And given that you guys know that I am completely obsessed with this color, this review would not be complete without giving you a chance to win a bottle for yourself.IMG_2948 ccc

Tory Burch Eau de Parfum - A Tomboy Chic Scent 

When you create a namesake perfume, you want it to be an androgynous gem - something that isn't easily defined by a tradition label. And that's exactly what we got when Tory Burch decided to create her first namesake Eau de Parfum - Tory Burch.Tory Burch is a tomboy chic citrus Eau de Parfum from Tory Burch with a soft floral edge. It has polished notes of floral peony and tuberose that is blended with citrus hints of grapefruit, neroli and the earthy tones of jasmine sambac, vetiver and sandalwood. The spray comes in a beautiful glass bottle with a signature fretwork top. I was initially captivated by the beautiful glass bottle with the signature Tory Burch fretwork as the top. As I wore the fragrance, I immediately noticed the sweet mandarin and neroli top notes that is accented with the floral blast of the roses and beautiful lush peony notes. Once it began to dry down (after about 1.5 hours on me), I began to notice the fresh grapefruit and creamy tuberose gardenia scent.IMG_6731 ccc IMG_6715 ccc IMG_6718 ccc
