REVIEW: Marc Jacobs Dot Eau de Parfum

Is anyone else obsessed with perfumes? Well I definitely am and have found a new favorite! It is Dot by Marc Jacobs. This is an Eau de Parfum and comes in four sizes. I got the 3.4 oz size which retails for $94 but the rollerball is just $24 if you want to test out this scent! In this perfume, there are notes of Red Berries, Dragonfruit, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Coconut Water, Orange Blossom, Vanilla, Driftwood, and Musk. This is such an easy, light perfume to wear in the daytime whether you’re going to class or going shopping!

Also, can we talk about this packaging? It is too cute!! I love the butterfly/ theme and the mix of red, black, and gold. All in all a great perfume and I definitely recommend it!

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!
