Fragrance

Darlings, I have created a one-of-a-kind ‘floral chypre’ perfume harmony that IGNITES a mind-altering fleurotic frequency. Featuring a blend of JOY top notes including Lemon, Peach and Black Pepper, ‘FLEUROTIC’ heart notes of Jasmine, Frankincense, Tuberose and Violet, plus PSYCHOACTIVE ‘pheromone’ base notes of Fire Tree, Iso E Super, Patchouli and Ambroxan. It attracts LOVE, LIGHT, POWER, POSITIVITY and SEX to the wearer!

Fall has fallen into our lives once more… This little fact has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m about to review. So, you get what you’re given, basically.

Oh, one last thing – I’m not about to give you Dream by Charlotte Tilbury… What I am about to give you is my take on it – which is more valuable. You’re welcome!

Does it smell nice? Sure. Yeah, it is a nice smell. I mean, if you have nostrils and sinuses that are in working order, use them and you too will realise it’s nice. But, is it worth its price (£48-64)? No.

I would use it very sparingly i.e. half a squirt each time you’re about to attend a very special occasion that you hardly ever go to. So, once every millennium (instead of New Year) should be enough.

The way I see it, you’ve got to smell good as you ring in the Year 3000! Busted couldn’t predict that, could they?

Have no fear, if the Year 3000 celebrations aren’t your thing, wait for the Blue Moon – that’s equally special, rare and astronomical.

Does it attract “love, power, light, positivity and sex” as it claims? Well, I’m still a virgin (by choice) but have been paying my electricity bill regularly – so that’s ‘light’ covered at least… Mind you, the price I paid for this perfume, it was touch and go quite honestly. Oh, and it’s a powerful scent, that’s for sure!

On the flip side, I am glad about my ability to remain positive since paying that much for a fragrance I’ll hardly ever wear. Then again, my love life is still car crash… So, all in all, it’s a mix bag.

One could argue I’m not wearing it enough; I might start wearing it every 500 years – that should do the trick…

Superdrug is currently selling Victoria Secret fragrance mists for £12 and two for £18. Basically, buy one and get the other half price. I am the biggest lover of bargains, so I was there like: “you take cash or credit?”

I picked up the Mango Temptation and Romantic… Because, the name’s Mansour and… Oh, whatever! I like mangos. They’re my favourite fruits, and it’s a good job they smell nice too. Mango Temptation really smells like Summer. The thing I like about fragrance mists is that they don’t cling on to you or smell too overpowering. They’re delicate but their scents pack a brief punch.

Both Romantic and Mango Temptation smell like full-on fruit. So, if you like fruit and smelling of them, you’ll love these two. The sale means you can stock up now and give them away as stocking fillers later.

Would I buy them again? I mean, sure. I like Victoria and her secrets.

Romantic:

A sheer mist made to mix, blend with others , or use alone for a scent of pink petals and solar musk.

Mango Temptation:

A sheer mist made to mix, blend with others or use alone for a scent of mango nectar and hibiscus.

Expect to get hi’ on the ol’ biscus if you’re wanting to dabble in Mango Temptation – or experience something out-of-this-world – not even the solar (musk) system can predict if you’re looking to be more Romantic.

There are many varieties to choose from. But, Mango Temptation and Romantic were there and caught my eye differently.

Who’s ready for another post? I was born (to write) it! Here is my new go-to fragrance… This is literally the be all and end all of my perfume life, right now. In my opinion, I have never smelt so good…

Sultry, exotic and intoxicating, Pacifica’s Tahitian Gardenia Perfume is a vintage-inspired blend of Jasmine, Orange flowers, Tea leaves and Ylang Ylang. Pacifica’s Tahitian Gardenia Roll On perfume is one of Pacifica’s best selling floral scent.

– Not tested on animals, 100% vegan.

Holland & Barrett… What can I say..? I love you. Like, I am literally in love with you… Thanks!

Back to my new Pacifica roll-on, this one is sentimental to me… My mum’s favourite flower is the gardenia, and smelling like this reminds me of my mum (who’s still alive & well, thank God). I just love it. It smells exotic, and like I’ve literally been to an authentic florist.

I do believe, in all honesty, that if reincarnation is a thing, I’m definitely coming back as Alan Titchmarsh. I love flowers, gardens and anything Mother Nature-y. I also love going on holiday… So, if you want to combine the two, invest in a beautiful, fragrant Pacifica roll on perfume (other scents are available) for £12 or less (depending on which one you choose).

Also, if roll-on perfumes aren’t your thing, they do scented candles too (also at Holland & Barrett). I, of course, have an advantage card – which – I’m not sure exactly how advantageous it actually is when you think of exactly how much I spend in store. 🙈

Other things I love about this Pacifica roll on perfume: it’s compact, obvs. I need to be able to carry it around, and not have my bag feeling heavy, Perfume (depending on size) can be really heavy, and if you carry some in a handbag – your handbag becomes luggage. Again, the packaging, it’s very simplistic but elegant. The colour schemes are beaut. It’s all beaut. I love it.

Only thing I don’t like: the amount of product… There could be more of it. Let’s not be stingy about it, Pacifica… I get that you know you’re on to a winner, but… Give us more of it, if you’re going to charge us £12!

Yeah, so that’s it. I love H&B. I also love fragrance and plants/flowers…

Welcome to Tahiti.

His Royal Highness, he makes a DAMN good King… 😍

If you’re not a King, you’re probably a Queen and… AMSTAR-TING to get REALLY get back into this blog postage (& packaging).

Aloha!

I’m Bach with a post about Victoria’s most Secret venture… Fragrances. Everyone who shops at VS, shops lingerie. I don’t know many who know VS for its other stock. Firstly, its PJ (not Peanut & Jelly) selection is SOMETHING ELSE!

Alas, I’m not here to discuss this… I’m here to talk fragrance. Especially her limited-edition ‘Golden Bloom’.

Get wrapped up in limited-edition sexy-warm scents, with notes of cozy gourmand, winter woods and dark ripe fruits.

  • Golden Bloom: Warm, with warm apple and tiger orchid

  • Velvet Petals: Warm, with sweet almond glaze and creamy sandalwood

  • Dark Flora: Warm, with pomegranate and sugared woods

  • Midnight Ivy: Warm, with rum raisins and amber woods

I love perfume, but- I’m the hardest (or easiest) to please because I love both fruity and floral scents.

I can never choose. I like them all, end up choosing one, and then regret my choice. So, imagine my QUELLE SURPRISE! when I discovered that VS (the FULL ON FLAMBAE OF THE RETAIL MARKET) sells a fruit & floral hybrid body mist?! Mate. Mateo. Mattise. Matrimony. Mattress. Metamorphic rock. Igneous.

That’s another thing (that has absolutely nothing to do with sedimentary)… I’m not even going to pretend that I didn’t USE TO have the tendency to overspray myself to the point where your nostrils could tell I was on my way from the Arctic (if you’re based in Australia). With “Golden Bloom”, this is no longer an issue.

That’s right, it’s a very soft and subtle scent. I’d like to say it smells like flowers and coconut. It’s honestly the most exotic thing I’ve ever smelled/smelt/s’mores. I love it.

Oh, let’s get on to my other favourite part about this… The packaging. Two trillion percent (by the time I’m 80) I’ll have the bottle’s design tattooed all over my body. My aim is to look like the Garden of Eden before I (hopefully) go there, God willing!

Okay, back to the scent itself… VS describes it as a “sexy” “forest” smell… Now, I don’t know how long you’ve been keeping up with this blog for (if you keep up with it at all), but I LOVE FORESTS!

I mean, I’d never go into one now… But, I just love the idea of them. Knowing that there’s a place where there are SO MANY TREES makes me so happy (them being cut down NOT AT ALL).

I also love what I imagine forests to smell like… Like a woodland. Oak. Fresh air. Squirrel poop. Deer wee. EVERYTHING. (probably not the two latter things before “EVERYTHING”).

Let’s take things back to VS’ description… I have to say that I didn’t really get the whole “forest” thing… Because, what forest has VS been to that smells like coconuts? Then again, I’m not a connoMansour of forests. Green houses/rooms, maybe. Forests? Not so much…

In a nutshell, put Golden Bloom around your nostrils when you get the chance. You might like it. If you don’t, sorry.

I don’t usually do this and get no enjoyment out of it but: if you’re one of the 0.00000000000000000000000000001% that would like to rant about my content and how “I need to learn to distinguish truth from fiction”, email: complaint@MiamiiGivesADiarrhea.NOT

I don’t like ending (or anything-ing) with negativity, so… *watches something hysterical on YouTube/TV/streams it online* I feel like everybody should do the same. If everyone followed suit, there’d be less animosity.

I’m excited. I’ve just signed up to a monthly subscription of GLOSSYBOX!

I covered it in a previous blog post, expressed interest but didn’t know if I was going to go through with it because I wasn’t sure if I was going to like all of the products that they send over every month. However, I just decided to go through with it and place an order, I’m sure I’ll enjoy what I get sent, and will be sure to blog about the products afterwards.

I’ve seen a few of you ladies have a subscription with GLOSSYBOX, how are you finding the samples? I know everybody’s different and each box is customised, but you must know if you like the stuff that’s getting sent to you each month, no?

Also, I’m guessing they send out special gift boxes on our birthdays because why else would they ask for it, right? What sort of stuff have they put in yours previously?

In other news, my long awaited Hair Jazz post is coming next week. I will be doing a TeaMi tea one as well soon, I’ve just been too busy to give it a go – but I’m working on it…
