Scents I’m Into Now!

Rosas Secas by Coqui Coqui Perfumes

A light rose unisex fragrance: bergamot, rose, and lightly herbed tobacco.

Tobaco Eau de Cologne is a more masculine version.

All of Coqui Coqui’s line are light and great for layering.


Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Natural Aluminum Free Deodorant Stick, Apricot

While as a deodorant it could be better I love 

the fragrance! I use it as a fragrance stick 

instead it is the best apricot fragrance I’ve 

ever come across! It is light so you will need to 

reapply but it isn’t over whelmed by peach or 

vanilla like most apricot scents are.


Latin for Universal Water; it is the smell of skin, 

clothes, bed linen and the air rolled into one 

unisex eau de toilette.

Notes: Bergamot, sicilian lemon, lily of the 

valley, sweet mock orange, light and musky 


Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume

A zesty, slightly bitter, and energizing citrus 

with an oriental base. Great for a pick me up 

on a cloudy day or to motivate me to run 

errands. Layer it with a vanilla based perfume 

for an adult creamsicle scent.

Notes: Blood Orange, bitter orange, jasmine, 

geranium, amber woods, tonka beans, and

Dita Von Teese Burlesque Star to Launch Lingerie and Perfume!

Hang on to your knickers!

Dita Von Teese aka The Queen of Burlesque is launching a lingerie line and perfumes on HSN! From the vintage-inspired lingerie sets ($25 to $45) to the fragrances ($75 a bottle).  “I thought HSN would be the perfect way to introduce my brand to the American woman, because my goal with these products is to bring glamour and refinement to women at an affordable price,” she said.  And she did just that by hand-picking eyelash laces and mixing scent notes in Paris herself, all while making sure the prices remained reasonable. Von Teese also wears all of the pieces she designed alongside those from her own very famous collection of lingerie.  “I spend exorbitant amounts of money on lingerie when I go shopping in Paris, and I think these pieces can really stand their own against the most expensive lingerie in the world,” she said. “I’m really proud of that fact.” And she has every right to be! Dita Von Teese’s American debut will be available on HSN and hsn.com starting April 23.

The seductive new scent is apparently an inviting combination of orange bergamot, pink pepper, Lapsang Souchong tea, magnolia, and raw amber. “I love the smoky smell of the Lapsang Souchong tea, which we combined with ambergris to create a voluptuous scent,” Von Teese said in a statement about Rouge.

To create her Old Hollywood-inspired scent. “I often thought about the great women that I admire like Marlene Dietrich or Hedy Lamarr—those sexy, glamorous, iconic women, and I couldn’t imagine them ever smelling like fruits or candy,” she said. “I wanted something that speaks of wanting to be grown-up, a sophisticated woman who is in charge of her life.” Von Teese’s scent is a seductive blend of Bulgarian rose and peony, with undertones of spicy Bourbon pepper and smoky wood.

Perfume Review: Tom Ford’s Violet Blonde

Tom Ford Violet Blonde

Violet Blonde, glamorous and sophisticated, opens with violet leaf, Italian mandarin and pink pepper. The centerpiece of the composition consists of Tuscan iris absolute, Tuscan orris butter, Sambac jasmine and sampaquita. The base is home to elegant and sophisticated tones of musk, suede, cedar, vetiver and benzoin.

Lara Stone

A loud powdery perfume that is “polished chic” that verges on formal with a  true violet open. Violet takes a back seat to jasmine, iris and a touch of fruit with creamy suede underneath.  It is a strong scent requiring judicious application!
