Flora By Gucci: Another Fabulous Fragrance For Fall

 

Oh yes! Another fabulous scent to share with you all. In my previous post I talked about my all time favorite fragrance which was Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy, but when I am in my sophisticated and feminine mood I fall for Flora by Gucci. Flora by Gucci launched in the spring of 2009 according to Sephora,

"This beautiful scent was inspired by princesses from the past, present, and future. The Flora Donna is a young, classic, and refined woman with the 'Gucci edge' of power and sensuality. The first Flora scarf was exclusively designed for Princess Grace of Monaco in 1966 and soon became one of the most popular Gucci icons. This scent is an expression of the Flora legacy. Its seductive layers mirror the playful details and bright colors that channel the heart of a fashion empire."

When I first saw Flora by Gucci in Sephora last year and smelled the beautiful notes of: Citrus Accord, Peony, Rose, Osmanthus Flower, Pink Pepper, and Sandalwood I was taken in and had to get it. The combination of the seductive floral scents already had my mind thinking of places to go to rock this scent. I was imagining myself in a beautiful gown walking the red carpet of Austin, lol. Well, maybe not walking a red carpet, but at least a night out with the hubby rocking a gorgeous cocktail gown and wearing Flora by Gucci.

It's funny how much I love this scent because when I looked at it today I can't believe that my bottle is almost empty, so with that said I think I will be hoping over to Sephora because during this time the of year you know they will have some gifts sets and to my surprise they have this one available in a set this year, Yay!! I must tell hubby to read this post, so that I can end up with a new one for Christmas, lol. The Gucci Flora By Gucci Gift Set ($94 Value) Flora By Gucci Gift Set $70, features:

  • 1.6 oz Eau de Toilette Spray 
  • 3.3 oz Perfumed Body Lotion

I totally would love to have this set because it has the body lotion for layer my scent or I can wear it on days I just want a soft scent of the fragrance on me. Now, ladies let me ask you something? Do any of you wear this scent? What do you love about it and what do you think about when you wear it?

Juicy Couture Couture Review

Omg! I am in love. . . Okay now if you all don’t know I absolutely love, love, LOVE Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum!!! This fragrance embodies my favorite notes like Wild Berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jasmine, Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Praline. Just love it and wear it all the time! It’s the perfect fragrance that is teasing and alluring to myself and my hubby too. But now. . . Juicy Couture is luring me into another new favorite called Juicy Couture Couture Couture 1 oz Eau de Parfum Spray.

I came across this fragrance while I was reading my new issue of Instyle magazine. When I came across the Juicy Couture ad I was like Oh! A new fragrance. I almost turned the page, but instead I opened up the ad to reveal beautiful scents of succulent pink grape accord frolicking in a field of natural orange flower and mandarin. A heart of blushed plum and honeysuckle flirts with bold star jasmine. At back, creamy sandalwood lazes with moist amber in a haze of rich vanilla. It smelled so good that I was rubbing the fragrance all over myself, lol. I have got to get this scent for Christmas, so I have already emailed my hubby the beginning of my wish list for the holidays! That’s right, this beauty chameleon is already thinking Christmas!

When it comes to fragrances how do you select your new signature scent for the season? Do you spritz and smell to see what if it takes you back to a certain time in your life? Whether it’s that very first romantic date back in college or do reminisce about the very specially trip you took on your honeymoon? Fragrances all means something to us and that is why every season we all are out on the hunt for that new scent that resembles something about us. Well, if you are one of those on hunt for a fragrance that is free spirited, sexy and modern you should try Marc Jacobs Lola Marc Jacobs 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum Spray.

Marc Jacobs Lola Marc Jacobs is described as a “warm floral bouquet that conveys the free spirit of today’s sexy, modern girl – she is playful, cool, and flirtatious. The long-lasting, day-and-night scent opens with pink peppercorn, pear, and ruby red grapefruit. Blooming midnotes of rose, fuschia peony, and geranium make a feminine statement. Layers of vanilla, warm tonka bean, and creamy musk create a sensous drydown.

The bottle’s exquisite, multi-layered cap is a bursting bouquet with bright modern colors that pop against a matte black background and rope-inspired, gold metallic neck. The silhouette is inspired by Marc’s fashion collection. ”

I sampled this fragrance out at Sephora and it does smell like the description very soft, sultry and sexy.

Kat Von D Saint & Sinner Fragrance Review

0826kat_articleDoes every woman have two sides? According to Kat Von D, yes! Recently Kat Von D just released her new fragrances at sephora called Kat Von D Saint 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray and Kat Von D Sinner 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray, $55 each. “Created by Kat Von D, tattoo artist, reality-TV star, and owner of High Voltage Tattoo, this edgy color collection exemplifies old-Hollywood glamour with an L.A. vibe. As her gorgeous face leads on, Kat is as masterful with makeup as she is with a tattoo gun. (She can throw on a full, flawless face of makeup in 15 minutes, flat. Now that’s on point.) Accordingly, her passion for makeup and self-expression is inked, so to speak, into every expert product she’s created. From pin-up perfection to rocker chic, this limited-edition lineup allows you to tap into your bad-girl side and unleash your inner artist.”,

-Sephora.com

Kat Von D Saint 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray has the scent of sweet nectar of Mirabelle Plum and sparkling juicy mandarin create an addictive, mouth-watering top. At the heart, exotic, heady Tiare flower and sweet, tempting caramel are adorned with the velvety floralcy of jasmine, the queen of the night, as she emits her spellbinding fragrance into the sky. Sensual vanilla and creamy musk combine with the warmth of sandalwood for a comforting dry down. When I tried this on in store and the fragrance smelled very light and floral and would be perfect to wear during the day time. A nice good girl scent for sure.

Then I decided to try on Kat Von D Sinner 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray. This one was very deep, sensuous and mysterious. The take of this one is Light, delicate top notes of orange blossom, refreshing mandarin, and fleshy plum create a provocative, sultry heart. Rich jasmine blends seamlessly with a white-flower bouquet, beautifully tainted by the spicy warmth of cinnamon, an herb associated with ancient rituals of pleasure. A dark, mysterious back of earthy vetiver, patchouli, and woods enveloped in creamy vanilla and sensual musk lingers on the skin. So, if your alter ego is not feeling so sweet and delicate of the saint fragrance this one will definitely fit your dark side. I really this one the best out to the two because of the jasmine and mandarin notes it contains.
