Five Fine Fragrances

I love to smell nice which probably sounds like an oxymoron because I am also a smoker but I have always had an affinity for fine fragrances since I was a young girl. I thought I would share with you my top 5 fragrances of all time.

1. Angel by Thierry Mugler

    Angel is my absolute favorite perfume. It is long lasting and smells just divine. It contains bergamot, tropical fruits, vanilla, caramel and patchouli. It is ironic that it has patchouli because I seriously can't stand it but it is not at all evident as far as I can tell.

    2. Kills Love Softly by Ed Hardy

    My second favorite is Kills Love Softly.  A color explosion of fruits opens the scent including tropical mango, wild strawberry and ruby red grapefruit. Vintage floral with a rock n' roll edge brings a dark sexiness including black freesia. This contrast of floral merges into a background of hot skin musk and warm soulful amber. It is a delicious and very addictive fragrance statement.

    3. Be Delicious by DKNY

    This is a newer acquisition and I think it is more spring like but I have been using it all year round. Described as notes of American Apple, Cucumber, Grapefruit, Candid Magnolia, Tuberose, White Muguet, Rose, Violet, Sandalwood, Tender Skin Accord, Blonde Woods, White Amber.

    4. Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan

    I bought this fragrance on the cruise ship last summer. Since it was Duty Free, it was a lot cheaper then retail. I had spotted it the year before on the 1st Alaska cruise and saved up my money to buy it. It is described as fresh floral jasmine, sandalwood & vanilla
    5. Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture
    This was actually an impulse buy but I totally dig it. I was standing in line at Kohl's and saw it on the display.  It caught my eye from the pink box :-) Described as honeysuckle, gardenia, jasmine, praline, amber, caramel vanilla, sandalwood
    Most of these fragrances retail for $65 or more depending. Places like Ross, Marshall's or TJ Maxx offer them at a reduced cost.
    Until next time...


    1. Love #2's bottle design! I think I might need to save up for a bottle:)

    2. I also love fragrances. I'm a Avon type of girl (due to price and I can't hang out in fragrance departments because I get overwhelmed by the scents), and my favorite is Far Away. It's just so soft and feminine:) Unfortunately, due to our no scents policy at work, I'm not allowed to wear fragrance of any kind:( Boo!

    3. Sadly,I'm allergic to perfume smells.

      I just wanted to share with you that I am down below 162 in the first time in a while and that means I lost 2.5 pounds since Sunday!!!I am trying to get to my goal weight by the end of February:)

    4. I love perfumes as well. With me when I smell them they bring back memories of different times in my life.

    5. Katie, I just tagged you in my blog darlin:) Would love to get to know you better!

    6. I love all these fragrances! #5 is my favorite!

    7. I haven't tried any of these fragrances, but I would probably love any of them you described. My favorite is Romance by Ralph Lauren. Mmmm...

    8. I'm going to check some of these out; I have a hard time finding fragrances that I really like.

    9. My daughter got some of that Ed Hardy for Christmas from her boyfriend...smells good!


    I'd love to know what's on your mind...
