Estee Lauder Modern Muse Chic

Estée Lauder Modern Muse Chic: Still a confident, independent, inspiring fragrance, with added BOLD, CREATIVE, STYLISH to it

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 Bamboo

Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum: Strong characteristic but yet graceful on the scent

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.

Gucci Bamboo
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.

Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Floral Drops

Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Floral Drops: Fresher, lighter and yet maintaining the scent of freshly picked white flowers sprinkled with dew

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.

Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Floral Drops
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.

Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition

Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition: A matchy match complementing fragrance for both men and women

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.

Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition
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 😛

Hugo Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme 1

BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme Eau de Parfum: Exceptional carefully balanced ingredients of Cactus Blossom for Strength, Pink Floral Bouquet for Beauty and Cedar Wood for Life

It felt like ages since my last fragrance review isn’t it. I was told that reviewing fragrance is one of the toughest because we all have different body chemistry and different scent preference. In another word, what I like may not be what you will like and vice versa 😀 . Tell you a secret. I kinda enjoy reviewing fragrances. I mean, I am afterall just telling you what I think about the fragrance ON ME 🙂 . As simple as that.

Usually press releases came into my email inbox even before the fragrance does. As you already know, I would be more than happy to post these info up. This time around I’ve gotten my hands on the soon-to-be (I got this in August) launch BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme Eau de Parfum even before the press release reaches my email inbox. I am a fan of HUGO BOSS Pour Femme line and I was expecting to love this new one too.

Hugo Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme 1
How do you like my interpretation of HUGO BOSS initial? The idea came while I was sleeping lol

Having to already own a bottle of BOSS NUIT Pour Femme a few months ago, I can already prepare myself for what to come – elegant, womenly, inspiration and confidence scent. Knowing that Gwyneth Paltrow, the ambassador for BOSS JOUR and BOSS NUIT is once again elected to be the ambassador for BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme confirmed my suspicious that the scent is going to be as good as the rest in the line. BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme completes the trio and reveals a new dimension to the BOSS woman.
