The Perfect Summer Scent!

27 May

I only wear a handful of perfumes and I love them all so much that I rarely add any additions to my collection. But 3 years ago I discovered Pirette at my local surf shop. The sales girl suggested that I try it and I said yes just to be nice- I expected that it would smell decent but not AMAZING! How could this random fragrance oil from a surf shop smell so good?!! I don’t know what’s in this tiny bottle but WOW, it’s one of the most beautiful scents that I’ve smelled. I get so many compliments on the fresh, beachy, coconut perfume that I had to share it here on the blog. I’ve been wearing it more since Spring has sprung and will continue to wear it through Summer. I cannot get enough of it.  pirette

Shop Pirette HERE $48

*Be warned…. the bottle is tiny, but I’m on my second bottle now and the first one lasted almost 2 years. A little bit goes a long way.

*Also, as I was writing this post, I discovered that they make candles too!!!!

Heaven In a Bottle! I Am Obsessed!

7 Sep

Let me start by saying that I am not one to buy a lot of different perfumes. I own about 6 total but have steadily used Versace Red Jeans and Vera Wang Princess for the last 8 years. I never thought I would add a third fragrance to my main lineup until I smelled Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium! WOW!!!! It is as intoxicating as a perfume can get. The scent is unique and bold, yet warm and sweet. It has vanilla, floral and coffee notes with some musky undertones. (not overpowering musk though) I think of it as the perfect blend of spicy and sweet and will be wearing it throughout Fall & Winter.

Side note: Black opium is an Eau de parfum so a little goes a long way.

Black Opium comes in 4 sizes ranging in price from $25-$115.

How gorgeous is that bottle? Also available in a blinged out version ($300) if you’re feeling really fancy.
