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


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.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat Pencils: Review

pablo (1)



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!

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.
