Donna Karan DKNY Be Tempted Perfume Review

DKNY Be Tempted

When I recieved a sample of Be Tempted with a purchase, I  was going to throw it out. This is a flanker to DKNY’s Be Delicious, one of the few perfumes that gives me headaches. I thought I’d save myself from the need of sitting in a dark room for hours. For some reason, I kept it. And then for an even stranger reason, I sprayed it on my skin.

Be Tempted does smell like waxy, red Twizzlers. Like OMG, it’s so much Twizzlers.

Guerlain Mon Guerlain Perfume Review

Guerlain Mon Guerlain

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Even though Guerlain hasn’t launched anything that has interested me in years, I still get excited when they have a launch. I used to consider myself a Guerlain Gal but throughout the years my focus has shifted into Chanel territory (because Chanel has been launching things I’m more likely to wear).

Hugo Boss HUGO & Boss Bottled Perfume Reviews

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing Popular Perfumes

I’m trying to spend some time this summer organizing and going through all my mess. I’m attempting to organize beauty stuff, which is not easy. I don’t have much space (oh, and I have too much stuff). I’m also trying to organize perfume samples (this is not easy because I still can’t figure out a system that makes sense). I thought I’d knock out a few Mainstream Monday: The Masculine Edition reviews. Today I’m sniffing two Hugo Boss scents from the 90’s:

Lancome La Vie Est Belle Perfume Review

Lancome La Vie est Belle

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I’m going to be honest, I hated Lancôme La Vie est Belle before ever trying it. Even though I try not to be, I can be extremely shallow and judgey. Everything about the marketing of La Vie est Belle gets on my nerves. The commercial with Julia Roberts may be one of the corniest perfume commercials of my adult life¹. This is slightly entertaining as I don’t expect Citizen Kane from a perfume commercial, but what really gets… Continue reading | 8 Comments
