Signorina, my first ever fragrance from Salvatore Ferragamo remains as one of my favourite perfume and I have been using it sparingly fearing that I might ran out fast if I use it non-stop. Not because I cannot afford to buy myself another bottle but it was something else. It is extra special as my name was engraved at the back of the bottle. So it holds a sentimental value to my heart, being the first Salvatore Ferragamo I own.
I like it when a fragrance is named as the BOSS. And today I’m going to be a little bit more bossy and tell you about HUGO BOSS’s new men fragrance – BOSS The Scent.
Throughout these few years of blogging, I’ve only reviewed one men fragrance. The one and only men fragrance which I wore daily to work just to get the feel of the fragrance on me. BOSS The Scent would be my second. Comparing to the first men fragrance experience, I am actually not as afraid as I was before. Let me just tell you in advance that I am a full on girly girl that you’ll ever met. Having to walk around smelling all masculine and fresh is really not my cup of tea. I was actually surprised that BOSS The Scent is not as I expected. I’ll tell you why 🙂
After the successful Modern Muse fragrance launch in 2014, Estée Lauder released an extension to Modern Muse and that is the Modern Muse Chic. Modern Muse is my most reached perfume the entire half of 2014 up until now and I’m already on my last half of the bottle *yikes!*. When I found out that there will be an extension to my favourite perfume, I find myself having a mixed feeling. Is Modern Muse going to be discontinued? Is Modern Muse Chic the replacement for the original version? Will it carry the Sparkling Jasmine Accord note that I’m obsessed? What if I hate it?
It turns out I was scaring myself with all the insecure questions roaming inside my head. Modern Muse is here to stay and the “Chic” version is the BOLD, CREATIVE, STYLISH version of the original confident, independent, inspiring. Similar, but not the same.
Gucci made pretty good smelling fragrance all year round. I’ve said this before and I’m going to said it again. You can never go wrong with Gucci fragrance. I was blessed with a few Gucci fragrance and although I like them all, I can’t tell which is my favourite because they all smell so good.
Fresh from Gucci fragrance line, the brand introduced a new fragrance for her – Gucci Bamboo and it is already available for purchase.
The foundation of Gucci’s new Bamboo is to grab the brand’s most recognizable design signatures in references to Gucci woman of today, which is strong and graceful. Why bamboo? Well, bamboo has always been associated with strong characteristic for it’s natural strength survival will in extreme conditions. It is also elegant in a way and that, are what modern Gucci woman have in common with. Strength and confident, feminine, bendable but not breakable, adaptable, vital and fierce in facing changes in what life has to offer.
A year ago, Dolce&Gabbana launched a fresh floral fragrance last year namely Dolce and a year later today with Spring around the corner, Dolce&Gabbana releases Dolce Floral Drops. It’s the first extension of Dolce following the successful fragrance release last year.
Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Floral Drops will be able to cater to the group of users that are not into strong floral scent of the original Dolce. It is more of a fresh and light scent and yet still mimicking the scent of freshly picked white flowers sprinkled with dew.
I happened to like floral scent when it comes to my fragrance. The original Dolce fits the bill however I do admit that the floral scent is too strong. Dolce Floral Drops seems to be the answer and solution to that 🙂 . I do think it’s because a hint of freshness that was added into the concoction that neutralizes the floral scent to the right amount. It has the rare beauty of a fresh, floral scent. Bear in mind though, Dolce is Eau de Parfum while Dolce Floral Drops is Eau de Toilette. This new extension fragrance is inspired by the notes of Dolce Eau de Parfum, preserving its harmonious signature of white flowers together with a heart of White Amaryllis. Combining these ingredients with the lively and crisp green opening of Neroli leaves, that enriches its character and define its freshness right from the opening of the fragrance.
Christmas this year is extra special and a joyous for me when these two heaven smelling Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition reached my doorstep a few weeks ago. I’ve wore no other perfume but this since then and I even made my brother to use it and tell me what he thinks! Talking about taking control on how man smells lol.
A few months ago Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One For Men Limited Edition was launched for it’s 2014 lineup and to coincide with the holidays, Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition (which is the duo you’re reading now) is released. There is no other best time to gift fragrance to your loved ones but Christmas.
It’s not really just for the holidays and all. Dolce&Gabbana is celebrating the timeless elegance of The One and The One for Men by releasing the Collector’s Edition. You can easily differentiate which is for who although both of the bottle only state “The One” on the front. This limited edition bottle is interpreted as Dolce&Gabbana passionate red for the women while deep rich brown for the men. I was figuring out which should be mine without realizing the perfect color coordination. Of course the red is for girl. Silly me 😛
