Bvlgari: Mon Jasmin Noir – l’Elixir (review)

bulgari-mon-jasmin-noir

Hello Darklings!

It’s been a while since my last perfume review! As you know, I’m a perfume-addict, so every once and a while I have to sneak into the blog, a fragrance I’m currently obsessed about. This time it’s the: Bvlgari – Mon Jasmin Noir, L’Elixir, that has taken my breath away.

If you are looking for the perfect sophisticated and refined gift for this Holiday season, trust me, you won’t regret investing into this gem. Now, I’m sure you are all well acquainted with the classic “Bvlgari – Jasmin Noir” perfume, which has the most perfect musky/jasmine/woody notes. Well, imagine this captivating and mysterious fragrance being refreshed and rendered even more refined and sensual with a touch of Lily and musky Nougatine. If you were already a fan of “Jasmin Noir”, you would fall over the hills for this enchantress of the night! It is a truly addictive scent, and it will definitely go into my ‘timeless signature perfumes’ collection.

Bvlgari has always been the definition of refinement and sophisticated taste. Their perfumes are a must-have.

Signature Scent: Burberry Body

Signature scent

Hello Darklings!

I would like to share with you THE ONLY perfume I have purchased three times! The perfect combination of MUSK, sandalwood, amber & freesia notes have made out of it my Signature Perfume! I thought there would never be a perfume which could define my style & personality, a perfume that I will always like wearing no matter what without getting tired of it, but Burberry Body has definitely hit my weak spot! MUSK, SANDALWOOD & AMBER! What a divine & sophisticated combination that screams elegance! After buying the intense version of the perfume twice, I treated myself for a third time with the limited edition of it: Rose Gold Eau de Parfum. It’s even more intense than the regular & intense collections. If you are looking for mystery & sophistication in a perfume, then that’s the one for you!

Hello, Darklings!

Ever since I watched one of the gorgeous Amanda Hendrick’s beauty haul videos (channel posted down below), I’ve been wanting to get these spectacular lip liners/pencils! It is all in the name: these beauties can be used both as lip liners & actual lipsticks (with an amazing matte effect). The big bonus is that they are also waterproof! I started with these two NUDE colours, as I’ve been into nudes lately, and they work perfectly for the summer, especially with black eyeliner cat eyes. Yes, you got GOTH & CHIC right away with such a combination! They are so flattering to the lips, it is unbelievable! After trying so many liquid lipsticks, I must say that these babies come among my favourites along with Gerard Cosmetics Hydra-Matte liquid lipsticks. I’m so hooked on Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip cheat collection that I’ve decided to get all the colours, they are all stunning!

So there, I encourage all of you to try these little wonders, you won’t regret it!

Kardashian Beauty Hair Conditioner: Review

IMG_0894

Hello Darklings!

My Hair Products obsession has finally led me to the new Kardashian Hair Beauty collection! Having had bad experiences with mousse leave-in conditioners, I had switched to strictly liquid products (serums, dry oils etc). Luckily, after reading so many good reviews about the new Kardashian hair beauty line, I decided to try their leave-in mousse conditioner, and I must say I’m extremely satisfied with the result! My hair is as silky as any of the Keratin based liquid leave-in conditioners I’ve been using and even shinier! I thus, recommend it strongly to those of you who prefer thicker solutions for their hair.

Looking forward to more hair products by the Kardashians!

Elie Saab, Le Parfum Intense: Review

Elie Saab le parfum intense

As I have mentioned in my first perfume review post (Rock Princess by Vera Wang), any perfume I buy MUST have a musky base. Due to my large experience with perfumes throughout the years as a perfume lover & collector, I can most certainly say that for flower perfumes, apart from the musky base, I need a combination of bergamot and orange blossom. The fact that I have bought the Elie Saab perfume for the second time (only this time the intense version of it), confirms my affinity for the trio base combination of musk, bergamot and orange blossom. Any flower perfume that has one of these or the three of them has they key to my heart.

When it comes to sweet perfumes, they have to have the musky base that will give them a more sophisticated scent , which will attract my attention. The above-mentioned three ingredients along with the exotic mediterranean Gardenia flower, make Elie Saab – Le Parfum Intense the most elegant, sophisticated and addictive flower perfume for an eccentrically elegant lady. So if you are still looking for a new perfume to wear this spring, you now have the answer.

Rock Princess by Vera Wang: Review

 

VW2

Being a strictly musky scents kinda girl, Rock Princess by Vera Wang was definitely a pleasant & original surprise. I am generally quite demanding when it comes to perfumes, nothing sweet or floral pleases me unless it screams ‘sophistication’. That’s why I generally prefer musky perfumes.

Rock Princess has the gigantic advantage of combining two of my favourite things: the colour purple & a musky scent. How? It’s all in the title of the perfume, which is completely justified. The Princess part is illustrated by the sweet violets fragrance, which gives it a classy girly side. The girly princess part definitely becomes badass (hence rock), when we add to it a strong musky smell rendering the whole product worthy of admiration. This is the perfect fragrance for an elegant Queen of Darkness. Perfect for day & night, it adds this strong classy vibe to it that is hard to miss.

Rock Princess has definitely become part of my favourite perfumes collection. For more reviews by this blog’s perfume addict, subscribe to my eccentric blog!
