Mainstream Monday: Sniffing Popular Perfumes
Years ago Kat Von D had launched perfumes. They were discontinued. I remember them very vaguely but not enough to do a comparison between those and the new 2017 edition. One thing that I can certainly say is that the new 2017 bottles are gorgeous. They’re an improvement!
Notes listed include clary sage, mirabelle plum, jasmine, almond blossom, caramel, tiaré, lily-of-the-valley, vanilla, sandalwood, peach and musk.
