Bath and Body Works Coconut Candy Apple Fragrance Mist Review

Bath and Body Works Coconut Candy Apple is a new, limited edition Fall 2021 scent that launched in a Fine Fragrance Mist, Shower Gel, and Body Lotion in stores and online. From the Bath and Body Works Fall 2021 Collection I picked up Coconut Candy Apple Fine Fragrance Mist and Lotion as well as Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Fine Fragrance Mist and Body Lotion. Nothing else really grabbed me from some of the new floral scents they launched and I’m fully stocked up on Strawberry Pound Cake and Marshmal...

Bath and Body Works Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Fine Fragrance Mist Review

Bath & Body Works popular Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Candle is now available in a Fine Fragrance Mist, Body Lotion, Shower Gel, and more for limited time for Fall 2021. I love, love, love Bath and Body Works for taking their most popular candle scents and creating entire body collections around them but sadly, it hasn’t always been a success! But if I had to rave about candle scents come body collections I’d say that Bath and Body Works Pumpkin Pecan Waffles and Hot Cocoa and Cream are the two bes...

Carolina Herrera Very Good Girl Eau de Parfum Releases Stateside

Carolina Herrera Very Good Girl Eau de Parfum finally arrives stateside and you can snag a rollerball for $30 bucks or a bottle in a variety of sizes that start at $76. Very Good Girl has already had a European release and I was expecting it to roll out for Fall 2021 and hey, being the end of June, I’d say it’s just on time for a Fall launch. I’m actually not a fan of the original Good Girl fragrance but lord, she isn’t good, she’s all bad. It’s not really a scent that I love personally! But...

Bath & Body Works Strawberry Soda Fragrance Mist Really Is Middle School All Over Again

I caved! I purchased Bath & Body Strawberry Soda Fragrance Mist and Body Lotion and I REGRET NOTHING! Nothing I TELL YOU! Bath & Body Works Strawberry Soda Fragrance Mist released for the Semi-Annual Sale 2021. Bath & Body Works is sort of weird with these exclusive sale scents. They started doing these about a two years ago or so….they would say “fan favorites” and “retired scents” would be available but also, they’d throw in these scents they’ve never done before and right out for the ga...

Pacifica Dream Moon Spray Perfume A Dupe for Baccarat Rouge 540?

I’ve been trying to locate a bottle of Pacifica Dream Moon Spray Perfume in stores since it launched but no luck. I’m finally just grabbing it at Target as it’s 25% off which kicked me into a blind buy purchase. Why is it sold out? Probably because everyone and their mom is saing that Pacifica Dream Moon Spray Perfume is a dupe for Baccarat Rouge 540 or at the very least Cloud. Don’t come for me but Ariana Grande’s R.E.M. Eau de Parfum smells a lot more like BR540 to my nose than Cloud. The...

Fragrances became an affordable luxury during the pandemic, leading to the biggest boom in sales in years: 'I have never, ever seen anything like this'

Fragrance sales were up 45% in the first three months of the year. Visoot Uthairam/Getty Images Fragrance sales have been soaring since last August, and jumped 45% in the first quarter. They became a small luxury during the pandemic, according to NPD Group's Larissa Jensen. "If you think about what we all went through it could be ... consumers wanting to escape," she said.

Replica Matcha Meditation Doesn’t Bring Out Your Inner Zen but Does Capture The Essence of Green Tea

Maison Martin Margiela added Matcha Meditation to the Replica Fragrance Collection back in March. The scent evokes the peaceful tranquility of enjoying a cup of matcha tea with fresh notes of bergamot and green tea accord. I think when I heard about this I was convinced it would be a lot like Replica Coffee Break in the fact it wouldn’t capture the essence of green tea but would smell more like a meditative moment! Something along the lines of a relaxing spa day. This evoked images of the ...

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.
