The premise of this page is to focus on fragrances I have purchased or samples given to me as a result of a purchase. Enjoy!

  •  Digging: Couture Couture by Juicy Couture (Macys)
  • Top Notes:  Orange Flower and Pink Grape. Middle: Jasmine, Honeysuckle, and Blushed Plum.

  • Digging. Yes, Digging Beyonce Heat (Macys)
  • Notes: Magnolia, Neroli, Red Vanilla Orchid -- and Peach
  • BlacBlouse Commentary: Surprisingly this fragrance is not that bad...I just took a few whiffs at the counter, wish I could have received a sample so that I may give a FULL blog report.  Nevertheless, thought I should at least pay some sort of homage to Beyonce's first fragrance. Kudos to Beyonce!
  • Semi-Digging. Womanity by Thierry Mugler
  • Top Notes: Citrus, Woods, Fig, and Caviar.
  • BlacBlouse Commentary: The first time I took a whiff of Thierry Mugler's Womanity, my immediate thought was -- OMG this fragrance is FIERCE!  So, I purchased it and to my surprise received a free sample of the same in my bag.  I started using the sample first...and I'm so glad I did.  Despite my initial reaction of adoring this fragrance, for the few days I had it on my skin it didn't seem to work out. So, I returned bottle.  And now, I love it again -- I'm using up the sample! Don't laugh.

    1. I love Jil Sander no. 4. Have been wearing it since years. Nowadays it is almost impossible to find it, so I switched to "Pure" by her which is soft and light and easier to get.

    2. Hi Heidi!! Jil Sander's Pure sounds divine...I can't get enough of soft and light fragrances. Always disappointing when a favorite fragrance becomes difficult to find. If you trust online shopping, found a couple sites that carry Jil Sander no. 4:


      There were some other sites, but they looked a bit iffy to me - Amazon and appears to be a trust worthy source to purchase your favorite fragrance :)

    3. Take a sniff of Gucci's divine!!!

    4. Hey! Gucci Guilty -- mmm, can't wait to check it out. Thank you! :)

    5. I love Juicy, one of my favorite fragrances! My daughter received the DKNY for this past xmas. I do love all of Marc Jacobs fragrances. Love Sisley-Paris. Also Calvin Klein Beauty is scrumptious.

    6. Hey! I have been wanting to look into Calvin Klein Beauty for the longest time. Yes, Marc Jacobs fragrances are divine. Never heard of Sisley-Paris -- intrigues me.
