Pink Sugar Creamy Sunshine and Pink Sugar Berry Eau De Toilette Launch for Summer 2021

Wakey, wakey my juvenile friends today Pink Sugar Creamy Sunshine and Pink Sugar Berry Eau De Toilette launch for Summer 2021! Who’s feeling like a teenager with this launch? It’s been seven hundred hours and 150 days since our friends at Aquolina released a new fragrance! Pink Flower was launched in 2015 but after that nothing here in the US. But for Summer 2021 we get not one but two new Pink Sugar scents! Creamy Sunshine and Berry! Do I need them? My inner teenager girl says yes but lo...

Ellis Brooklyn Sweet Not the Droid You’re Looking

Ellis Brooklyn Sweet is a fragrance that launched in Spring 2020 that was an instant blind buy for me. As a gourmand I couldn’t not purchase a fragrance named Sweet. Images of candy, creamy vanilla, marshmallows and whipped cream danced in my head. In reality, Ellis Brooklyn Sweet Eau de Parfum isn’t exactly the gourmand you’re looking for if you’re expecting a scent that will give you a toothache. It’s actually a more traditional warm gourmand with notes of pear and ambrette! Marshmallow happe...

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 A Naughty Little Gourmand

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 has gotten some serious airtime last year and into this year on social media and across beauty blogger and influencer accounts. Although, it’s gaining popularity now it’s actually been part of MFK’s permanent catalog since 2015. The fragrance was created by Francis Kurkdjian and contains notes of jasmine, saffron, cedar wood, and ambergris. To me it plays a starring role in the Maison Francis Kurkdjian fragrance line. I’m late a comer to my love of BR...

That Cloud of Fluffy Marshmallows You’re Smelling Isn’t My Coffee Drink

I’m walking around in a cloud of fluffy marshmallows with sweet orange blossom and I’m reeling in the compliments everywhere I go today. The girl that asked me outside Starbucks what I was drinking because it smelled so sweet (I was drinking Espresso Frappuccino). I shrugged and told her it was an Espresso Frapp (Don’t judge me, I really needed a hit of caffeine today! I normally don’t drink coffee anything but on a rare day I need something! I can’t be all rainbows, hearts, unicorn sweetness...

Ok, I’ll Admit It I’m Old and the Idea of Three New Avon Haiku Perfumes Excites Me

Haiku Sacred Intense, Haiku Kyoto Flower Intense, and Haiku Intense are three new additions to the Avon Haiku Perfume family that are available for Spring 2021. Haiku launched back in 2000 and I’m not sure how to feel about that. I’ve been using the scent for years now does this make me old? I’m so in denial about being old. I’m just going to sit over here and be forever young. Anyone else who wants that can sit at my lunch table. I have fruit rollups. Anyway, Haiku goes intense for Sprin...

Moschino Toy 2 Bubble Gum Launched Today and It’s On Sale

Moschino Toy 2 Bubble Gum Eau de Toilette Spray is a new sweet, fruity fragrance that just launched on macys.com and it’s on sale! I’m over the moon about this as I didn’t want to purchase it directly from Moschino because I was being cheap about shipping. I love the original Toy and I do so wish they’d bring it back! I’m not a big, big fan of Toy 2 but I have a feeling Toy 2 Bubble Gum is totally going to be my jam. This has top notes of candied citrus notes including orange and lemon with...

Juliette Has a Gun Pear Inc A Fragrance I’m Most Curious About

Juliette Has a Gun Pear Inc has arrived at sephora.com in both the travel spray and the larger bottles. This is a fragrance I am incredibly curious about. It is slightly weird to release it now as Spring is in the air and I commonly associate pear with being a Fall fruit but hey, I like the sweet smell of a green pear and I can get on board with a fragrance that smells like this. The fragrance hopes to evoke happiness, positivity, and sunny days! All of which we need right! Sunny, happy day...

Replica Matcha Meditation Eau de Toilette Fragrance for Spring 2021

Replica Matcha Meditation Eau de Toilette Fragrance is a new Spring 2021 launch that Nordstrom.com got early dibs on! If you recall Replica’s Coffee Break was available at Nordstrom a few months before anyone else got their hands on it and considering Bubble Bath just launched a few short months ago at Sephora I don’t think we’ll see Matcha Meditation appear there until much later or maybe not at all considering they say this is a Nordstrom Exclusive. But I always take Nordy’s exclusives with...

Bath & Body Works Hibiscus Paradise Eau de Parfum Review

Bath & Body Works Hibiscus Paradise Eau de Parfum is a new tropical fragrance with notes pink hibiscus, juicy guava and coconut. It’s one of Bath and Body Works standard Hawaiian inspired scents they release when Spring starts to roll in which makes it rather repetitive and not terribly unique. Don’t mind me I’m grumpy Bath & Body Works keeps churning out endless tropical scents for the Spring. I just want something new and exciting! That being said Bath & Body Works Hibiscus Paradise is a l...

Coach Dreams Be Like Let Me Remind You Of That Cross Country Road Trip Charlies Campion Took

Coach Dreams Eau de Parfum arrives for Spring 2021 and reminds us all a cross country road trip is probably not currently in the works even that’s the inspiration behind this new scent!

Don’t be good old Charlie. Stay home even and wear some Coach Dreams which will inspired the dream of a cross country road trip...

Escada Candy Love A Review of Sweet Romance

Escada Candy Love Perfume is a limited edition, new gourmand fragrance that launched just in time for Valentine’s Day with delicious notes of Candy Apple accord and vanilla whipped cream. Escada Candy Love is actually one of two new scents that launched this year! The other scent is called Summer Festival. It’s fairly typical for Escada to do a Spring/Summer fragrance launch but they very rarely release two fragrances in one season! Getting both was a nice little treat for this Escada fan! I ha...

Heads up there are two new Ariana Grande Fan Box Fragrance Sets available at Ulta. The first one is the Ariana Grande Cloud Fan Box and the second is the Ariana Grande R.E.M. Fan Box. I dunno if I technically need these as I’m not even an Ariana Grande fan but I have to admit both Cloud and R.E.M. are actually two very impressive juices for a celebrity launch! If you’ve been curious about either of them now is a good time to haul as these boxes contain a 3.4 oz ($64) of the fragrance, a 0.3 o...
