A heady scent featuring wild-harvested Australian sandalwood and a hint of the intoxicating floral note of Australian Boronia.
Prior to getting Raw Spirit’s Desert Blush fragrance into my hands and (immediately, because OMG) onto my skin, I had never experienced the scent of Australian Boronia. As someone who is not really a fan of the earthy and woody fragrance of sandalwood, the sweet and floral aroma of the boronia literally MAKES this perfume. The floral scent is the perfect complement to the sandalwood, creating something so utterly inviting. Read more
Color. Something that the winter has left us devoid of and something I long for.
Scent. I simply cannot wait until the blossoms of Spring lend their fragrance.
What I’m loving right now has everything to do with color and floral scents. Honestly, I’m spending a lot of time on Pinterest simply staring at flowers, warm climates and pinning colorful cosmetics. There’s something about the power of color and fragrance that can uplift your mood. How many days until Spring again?

I could not be more in love with my new fragrance, Roses de Chloe and the feedback from friends and co-workers on the scent is something to talk about. It’s a new girly rosy version of the original Chloe and an instant hit. It seems as if everyone I walk by wants to know what my fragrance is, including my male boss! (It makes me happy to know I smell nice!)
I first fell in love with rose scents when I was searching for a fragrance to wear on my wedding day. I read an article that suggested choosing a new fragrance to wear on your wedding day, something you don’t already wear, so that when you smell that scent in the future, you associate the scent with that special day. I ended up choosing a rose fragrance and now anything that smells remotely like it reminds me of our big day! Roses de Chloe is one of those rare scents that instantly lifts your mood to a happy place. It’s a MUST sniff! Read more

Avon launched it’s the third fragrance by the famous pop star Fergie, named Viva by Fergie last spring. The new fragrance is advertised as fearless and daring with the slogan “Live by Your Own Rules.”
“Viva is a fresh and unexpected fragrance that brings out the duality of a woman. Powerful, yet seductive, and living life by her own rules,” described Fergie.
The composition is fresh and floral, blended out of cooling herbs, fierce lavender and intriguing vetiver. The green opening is fresh and crisp without any fruity or citrus accords. Most fragrances use citrus to get that briskness but Viva relies on green herbals to bring it. Read more

I love when my boyfriend wears cologne and thankfully he always wears scents that are pleasing to the senses. (Unlike memories of high school and the boys who would literally bathe themselves in cologne. Sometimes I wondered if they would douse themselves in it in lieu of a shower. But I digress…)
I don’t typically review men’s fragrance or grooming products here anymore, however I couldn’t pass up Atmysphere, which promises that it would create an intimate romantic atmosphere via the fragrance. It sounded much like those perfumes that claimed to have pheromones in them that would create attraction, however their website is very clear that there are no pheromones in this men’s fragrance. Curious, I informed my boyfriend that he was going to be a test subject. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind an intimate romantic atmosphere anyway…I mean what guy passes that up? Read more
