Free your Fire – YSL LIBRE Fragrance

Free your Fire – YSL LIBRE Fragrance

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a fragrance review here on StyleScoop, but man oh man am I excited about this one. The new LIBRE fragrance from YSL Beauty ticks all my fragrance boxes.

It’s sexy, seductive, bright and the warm vanilla touch makes it a perfect cozy fragrance! Just what I’ve been looking for. In addition, it has uber smouldering notes of lavender. Something that is very much found in mens fragrances, but works majestically in this one – because of a very special process!

FLOWERBOMB Midnight – Fragrance Review

FLOWERBOMB Midnight – Fragrance Review

First things first – I am a big, big fan of the original Flowerbomb fragrance of 2005 and even more in love with their 2015 update Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum Extrême. So yes, it’s a no brainer that I would also love Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight too. The only thing, is that I don’t find it as potent as the other two? Don’t get me wrong, it’s glorious but I’m talking intensity when I say “potent”. On me it gives me that knee weakening first spritz, but then seems to settle into a pretty scent without overpowering the senses. And I do like fragrances that overpower, but hey, if that’s not your thing and perhaps you didn’t like that with previous Viktor & Rolf fragrances, who knows, this one may be  your numero uno.

Flowerbomb Midnight – a suspenseful moment of supreme mystery, sensuality, femininity, power, and transformation. The truest form of self and expression, your unapologetic self… at midnight.

Lancôme La Nuit Trésor

Lancôme La Nuit Trésor

Last week when I shared one of my favourite new fragrances, I mentioned that there was a second fragrance that had captured my heart! So, today, I’m excited to reveal to you the new and totally decadent La Nuit Trésor fragrance from Lancôme.

Oh la la la!

While I’m smitten with Chanel CHANCE Eau Tendre de Parfum and it’s the perfect day time scent, Lancome La Nuit Trésor has become my favourite valentine for night. It’s sexy, saucy and seductive and like a precious and rare gem – but in a fragrance.

Take a Chance: New CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau De Parfum

Take a Chance: New CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau De Parfum

Life is all about taking chances. There’s an unknown quote that says simply, “You can’t go through life protecting yourself from everything. You have to take chances. Because if you don’t, then you might as well not be living.”

When it comes to making your fragrance choices, I say LIVE a little! Break out of your fragrance comfort zone. Take a Chance and you’ll discover something spectacular.

It’s been a while since I’ve been really excited about a new fragrance. Truth be told, with so many in my collection, eventually the climax of something new isn’t quite as good as I usually hope. Not the case with this new launch from CHANEL – Chanel CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau de Parfum.

Celebrate Spring with 3 Delightful New Jasmine Fragrances

Celebrate Spring with 3 Delightful New Jasmine Fragrances

Nothing says hello and welcome Spring, like the delightful scent of Jasmine. At about 5pm, when the sun starts to set, that gorgeous aroma fills the air, signifying the start of new and exciting things to come. It’s one of the things I look forward to most every spring. So to welcome the glorious season of Spring, and since it’s Spring Day in South Africa, I’ve rounded up three of my favourite jasmine loaded fragrances for this season. All three are absolutely gorgeous scents, and with each one, as I sniffed them, my reaction was pretty similar… “this is going to be my new signature scent for Spring 2017!” If you’re into Jasmine and white florals or just looking for a bright, happy and beautiful scent to wear, then these three will surely put a spring in your step!
