REVIEW: Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue + Travalo Tutorial

Hello everyone! I finally purchased a perfume that I have been wanting for a two years now! It is the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette! This is a classic so I would not be surprised if many of you already have this! It has notes of Sicilian Citron, Bluebell, Granny Smith Apple, Jasmine Sambac, Bamboo, White Rose, Cedarwood, Amber, and Musk. I think that if the word “expensive” had a smell, it would smell like this perfume! It is perfect for a day at work or a night out on the town! It lasts for a long time and even though it is a called an “eau de toilette”, I think it is just as strong as an “eau de parfum”. For prices, the 0.8 oz retails for $50 and the 1.6 oz size retails for $72 at Sephora.

REVIEW: Vera Wang Princess

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to review Vera Wang’s Princess Eau de Toilette. I know this perfume has been around for a long time now but it is my favorite! To me, it is the perfect mix of floral and sweet while still being a soft perfume. It is also be perfect for a date! The description of this perfume states that is has “delectable base notes of pink frosting accord, precious amber, forbidden woods, royal musk captive and chiffon vanilla.” Doesn’t that sound great? The other main notes of this perfume are:
  • waterlilly
  • lady apple
  • mandarin meringue
  • golden apricot skin
In terms of pricing, the 1 oz size costs $45 and the 1.7 oz costs $60. I definitely recommend this perfume!

Ralph Lauren Big Pony Women’s Collection #2

Hello everyone! Ralph Lauren has recently come out with 4 perfumes for their Big Pony Fragrance Collection for Women. I’ve been excited for this since knowing they released a Big Pony Fragrance Collection for men.

I went through and smelled all the scents and #2 was my favorite! [which I was hoping for since it’s pink! 🙂 ] This scent smells like fruit and seems like a perfect summer scent! I have been looking for a perfume like this for the last few months!

Notes: Cranberry, Tonka Mousse
Style: Playful. Irresistible. Romantic. Flirty.
Description: ‘The Sensual Fragrance is a “floriental fruity” scent with the key ingredients of cranberry & tonka mousse. For the alluring flirt with a romantic spirit who’s playful & irresistible.

 

This set in the pic is perfect for trying out the scent! It costs only $25 & comes with the following:

  • 1 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
  • 1.7 oz Body Mist
  • 0.46 oz essie nail polish

Also, you should know that this fragrance is an eau de toilette so it’s not super concentrated and is more of a light scent. I honestly wish it was an eau de parfum but if you spray about 3 sprays it should stay on you for a few hours!

If you wanted to buy the perfume in the 1.7 oz size, it costs $55.00 and the  3.4 oz costs $70.00. Here is the link if you want to buy the set online!

Let me know what you think of the collection or any of the perfumes if you have tried them!

Fabulous Friends-GUYS EDITION: Favorite Cologne!

Anyone shopping for a last minute gift for a father, brother, or boyfriend? I think cologne would be the perfect gift! My friends and I have talked about it in the past and we all agree that it definitely makes a guy more attractive it he is wearing cologne! I polled 18 guys and got a variety of responses for favorite colognes and fragrances! If you want to read the individual notes or see the costs of each cologne, then just click the name. Here are the results!

The most named cologne of the 18 guys was the Lacoste Essential Eau de Toilette with 3 votes! This cologne is described as “Masculine, Modern, Classic. Composed of unique fresh and spicy notes, built on an elegant woody base. Essential combines aromatic and sexy woods with rich fruit notes, linked with a transparent, floral heart.” The lasting power is known to be 6-10 hours. One of my friends said, “Love it. It gets the ladies what can I say.” Overall this seems like a great pick!

I was definitely not surprised to hear that a lot of people’s favorites were from the Polo Collections. I can definitely see these being a go-to scent.
3. Polo Blue Eau de Toilette– 2 votes (This is my favorite scent on a guy. Smells so good!)

These next two colognes each got 2 votes! On the left is Armani’s Acqua di Gio and on the right is Bleu de Chanel. The Chanel cologne is a favorite of Brandon Bryson’s who is a consultant from TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids.

Other fragrances mentioned were the Old Spice Deodorant Body Sprays. I’m definitely familiar with this product because both my brothers use it. I also agree that they smell awesome and seem stronger than other deodorant body sprays. I think that every guy should have a can of this in his bookbag or workout bag. A specific scent that was mentioned to me in case anyone needs a specific recommendation is Old Spice Champion.
