~ Please Remember: A Little Goes A Long Way ~

2011

  •  Digging: Couture Couture by Juicy Couture (Macys)
  • Top Notes:  Orange Flower and Pink Grape. Middle: Jasmine, Honeysuckle, and Blushed Plum.
  • BlacBlouse Commentary: I absolutely love this fragrance! The scent stayed with me for hours. In my opinion, it's perfect for a spring/summer day. That is all.


  • 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.




  • Digging: Alien by Thierry Mugler (Macys)
  • Notes: Solar Accord, Jasmine, Sambac, Green Notes, Cashmeran Vanilla, Transparent Amber.
  • BlacBlouse Commentary: Friends, this fragrance is on my list of FAVORITES. Love it. I received it as a sample which means I have to buy it... well, as soon as the samples run out. I love samples! : )
