A floral and fruity mix of wild berry, mandarin, honeysuckle, gardenia and jasmine. Touches of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and praline add a sweet touch. I got this perfume for Christmas because I'm a total Juicy Couture lover. The bottle is adorable and makes a great addition to any shelf or makeup stand. Plus, the smell is wonderfully girly.
Perfect for: A girls night out.
2. Banana Republic - Alabaster
This clean, fresh smelling fragrance is a combination of wild musk and natural florals. Delicate lotus flower, wild rose and warm musks make this perfume light and romantic. I could smell this all day, every day and be totally happy. This fragrance is very versatile and could appeal to anyone, regardless of age.
Perfect for: Work.
3. Christian Dior - J'adore
This sensual, sophisticated fragrance combines the floral scent of orchids with plum and mellow amaranth wood. It's a unique-smelling perfume and a total classic. I bought this perfume en route to a Caribbean vacation so it will forever invoke fond memories of my trip to Punta Cana.
Perfect for: Date night.
4. Ralph Lauren - Romance
This feminine mix of wood, floral, and musk is a classic! It's a combination of rose, marigold, ginger, chamomile, freesia, violet, lotus flower, day lily, patchouli, oakmoss and musk. Whew! Got all that? I have been wearing this perfume for about ten years and it still hasn't got old. It used to be my "signature" scent. I just love it.
Perfect for: Anytime.
5. Gucci - GuiltyThis mix of mandarin, pink pepper, peach, lilac, geranium, amber and patchoul "wakens the senses with a daring edge of sexyness and sensuality." This perfume just came out late last year, so if you haven't tried it yet, get yourself to Bloomies and give it a spray. When I first got this perfume I used to wear it all the time, but now I try to only limit it to special occasions. It's safe to say that this is my new favorite.
Perfect for: A special night out.
6. Ralph Lauren - BlueThis soft, fresh scent it like a crisp button down shirt. It's a powdery, floral mix of jasmine, lily of the valley, lotus blossom, pink peony, gardenia, rose, musk and a hint of orange blossom. I've been wearing this fragrance for many years and sill find it feminine, yet refreshing.
Perfect for: A summer day.
7. Tommy Hilfiger - Loud
Based on the "essence of a pulsating, energetic rock song," this energizing scent combines rose, lychee and patchouli. This perfume just came out late last year and I wasn't sure about it at first, but after wearing it a few times I fell in love.
Perfect for: A concert.

P.S. I'm so sorry for being such a crappy blogger lately! I've been tremendously busy, but that's really no excuse for neglecting my readers. The good news, though, is that during my absence, I've stock piled a slew of new ideas for the blog, (including a new hair curling technique that I cannot wait to share with you all). Intrigued? Stay tuned!
