My Favorite Gift to Give Year 'Round!

Yes, we just passed the most gift-giving time of year but you will have more times come up throughout the year where you need a great gift. One of my favorites to give? A fragrances complementing lotion or cream. I find it's usually something someone doesn't buy themselves and finding out their favorite or signature fragrance is rather easy.


Here are a few from the more popular fragrances out there!

  • VIKTOR & ROLF Flowerbomb Cream - $90/6.7oz @ nordstrom.
  • CHLOE Chloé Perfumed Body Cream - $85/5oz @
  • NARCISO RODRIGUEZ for her Cream - $86/5.2oz @
  • CHANEL Nº5 The Body Cream - $82/5oz @

5 Things My Nose Loves Right Now

Just because it’s October doesn’t mean I’m getting all pumpkin-y on you … yet. Still have quite a few more weeks before I dive into that.

From L to R clockwise:

VIKTOR & ROLF Flowerbomb Cream ($90/6.7oz @ – layer, layer, layer! It helps your scent last longer and anything with the word Flowerbomb on it gets my immediate attention. And the glass jar? Nice!  

MARK ‘Snowdrop Flower’ Hand It Over Super Moisturize Hand Cream ($4/1.5oz @ – I’m becoming a fan of mark’s body products! This seasonal one is getting me in the mood for the upcoming season with its wintry mix of florals, chilled fruit and warmth of amber. Big recommendation!

PHILOSOPHY Amazing Grace Satin-Finish Body Oil Mist ($26/5.8oz @ – if you’re a fan of their Amazing Grace scents, pick up this body oil mist version for quick skin hydration just out of the shower while it’s still warm in the room.

NATURALLY BARE 'Noir' Body Balm ($45/6oz @ – just wow! This balm contains major emollients like shea and capucau butters as well as vitamin E, aloe and argan and borage oils. So not only is the formula thick the scent is too. So much so that you can use this as your perfume. Think strong base notes like vanilla and sandalwood.

ESSENCE OF BEAUTY ‘Secret Woods’ Body Mist ($6.99/8oz, $2.99/2oz @ or CVS stores nationwide) – on days when you feel like taking a break from your signature scent, this floriental is a nice alternative and it won’t break the bank.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb La Vie en Rose. Does It Pass?

Viktor-&-Rolf-Flowerbom-La-Vie-En-Rose-EDTI was pretty disappointed by VIKTOR & ROLF’s Spicebomb so I was a little hesitant to try their Flowerbomb La Vie en Rose but open to it none-the-less. This one is an eau de toilette but the to my nose, it's more like an eau de parfum, much to my delight! This is a fruitier version of the original and will be really nice for spring and summer. Two thumbs up.

  • Top notes: bergamot, mandarin, pink pepper, green tea
  • Heart: lily of the valley, rose, sugared almond, raspberry, red forest berries 
  • Base: patchouli, cashmere, amber

Are you in the market for a new scent this season?

$80/1.7oz @

And this also comes in a Body Mist form for $65/3.4oz.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

Viktor-&-Rolf-Flowerbomb-Purse-Spray One of my favorite scents to come out in 2009 has to be VIKTOR & ROLF’s Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum. I bought  a bottle after smelling a swatch of it in a magazine and then forgot I had it until earlier this month. Has that ever happened to you? Anyway, I know that a scent can smell different in a magazine then in the bottle but this one translated really well and wow, is all I can say about this one. It has top notes of tea and bergamot, middle notes of Sambac jasmine, orchid, freesia, rose and base notes of patchouli. I really recommend you make a note (no pun intended) of this one to at least give it a whiff next time you are in a department store. It’s simply stunning! Floral but adult floral.


And give a scent release a little bit and the accoutrements that come out are usually really good like this one comes in the Flowerbomb Purse Spray ($110 only @, which comes with 3 refills. Big recommendation.
