Springtime Spritzers - Three New Must-Have Fragrances!

Tuesday, October 06, 2015

We are just lovin' these fresh spring mornings and bright sunny days instantly making you feel happy and rejuvenated ♥ So it's the perfect time to spritz on a new scent like MAD POTION by Katy Perry, DKNY MYNY by Donna Karan New York and GUCCI BAMBOO by Gucci...

Katy Perry, probably one of the most influential entertainers globally and successful celebrity fragrance creators, has brought us her latest masterpiece - Mad Potion Eau de Parfum. Toted as a “sexy vanilla” the fragrance includes notes of vanilla orchid, peony, apple musk, a heart of bourbon vanilla, soft musk and jasmine petals, followed by a base of vanilla bean absolute and amber. The bottle is cute and playful featuring a purple juice with glittery ball topper. It's no secret that the vanilla notes dominate in this scent. There may be a splash of sweet apple upon opening and a hint of powdered floral-type notes but they fade quickly back into the vanilla/musk mix. If you're not a vanilla fan then this is probably not the scent for you but if you are looking to add creaminess and warmth to another overly fruity fragrance then this is perfect. It will be like creating your own signature scent!

The new DKNY MYNY fragrance celebrates the energy of New York and Donna Karan chose Rita Ora for the face of the MYNY campaign. Yes she is British! But she is seen as the perfect representative of MYNY thanks to her originality, confidence and eclectic style that mirrors New York City’s organic street looks. MYNY is a unique scent with a mix of soft floral oriental tones, fresh top notes and a sensual patchouli base. It's definitely a fragrance you need to try as it seems to smell completely different from one person's skin to another. And you will certainly notice the changes in scent from the first time you spray it on, 2 hours later then every hour after that - a very interesting drydown! Basically, don't be too quick to judge this one - let it develop on your skin and you will most likely be pleasantly surprised!

Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum - love the brand, love the bottle, love the fragrance! Gucci always oozes sophistication, elegance and refinement and they have really made their point with their latest fragrance release for women. Firstly, take the distinctive bottle design - it's a visual statement of boldly cut diamond-style glass holding the pale blush scent inside topped off by the sleek signature bamboo-designed polished silver cap. Pure luxury. Then comes the gentle white floral, slightly woody, fragrance including notes of bergamot, ylang-ylang, Casablanca lily and orange blossom completed with creamy hints of sandalwood, Tahitian vanilla and amber. Some reviews have called this fragrance "safe" but this does not do it justice at all! It's a beautifully calming and refreshing scent which possesses a dreamy quality that makes you feel sexy and comfortable at the same time. It's the perfect fragrance to suit any occasion and any season and needs to be added to your collection!
