Since today we are talking about perfumes I will show you my favourites of the moment: Parisienne by YSL and Black XS by Paco Rabanne.
“Parisienne is the fragrance of ultra-femininity and sensuality, built with notes of blackberry, damask rose, and sandalwood. The grand floral with a woody structure is luminous even in its mystery.”
” Black XS for women is a modern floral-fruity composition. Top notes starts sharp and spicy with cranberry, pink peppercorn and tamarind, middle notes hellebore noir rose, black violet and cocoa blossom. The base notes are patchouli, Massoia wood and vanilla.”
And what are your favourite perfumes? Do you know any that I should check out that have something in common with these two?Read More
So many celebs have their own perfumes and some of you like it, some don’t ( I don’t) so now it’s not a big deal. But I was still a bit surprised to find out that Shakira has her own fragrance as well. It is called S and will be available in September.
Notes of S are:
- amber accord
Your thoughts? Do you like Shakira? What celebrity fragrance would you use? I would take a look if Monica Bellucci had one, I guess.Read More
I really like products from Elemis Exotic line and I’ve already reviewed the Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt and Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow. This is why I was happy to find out that there will be a new perfume from exotic line. I haven’t tried it yet but I’d love to.
Close your eyes…take a deep breath…sense the mystery…escape to a faraway place. And…reconnect
Elemis exotic is an intoxicating blend of warming Sri Lankan Cinnamon Bark, Pink Pepper, Clove Bud Oil chased beautifully by the floral heart of Ylang Ylang, Indian Jasmine Sambac and precious Tuberose. As the fragrance evolves the bass notes of Frankinscense, Somali Incense, Cedarwood and Sandalwood linger and are a fixative. Close your eyes and in one deep breath and let the exotic notes transport you to a faraway place. The spiciness of the top note, floral of the heart note and the accord of that final warm experience. An extension of you.
- Warm Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Clove Bud and Cinnamon Bark
- Precious Floral Heart Notes: Ylang Ylang, Tuberose, Indian Jasmine Sambac
- Woody Base Notes: Cedarwood, Somali Incense, Sandalwood

So it’s time for August favourites! This month I got a lot of new products and here are those that I loved the most.
1 and 2 – Illamasqua’s Precision Inks in Abyss (deepest black) and Alchemy (antique gold). It’s easy to use them, the colours are rich and pigmented and they stay on forever. You can read the detailed review and see the swatches here.
3.Guerlain KissKiss Gloss in Crystal Pearl 800, shimmering iridescent pink.
I’ve been using this gloss all the time and got a lot of compliments and so many people asked me about the colour. Pale sparkly pinks are my favourite lip glosses so no wonder that I like this one so much. The formula is quite thick and moisturizing. Keep in mind that it’s a scented gloss. Crystal Pearl is beyond gorgeous and it reminds me of my favourite gloss of all times – Mica by Chanel. Detailed review coming later.
4. Rouge Bunny Rouge Decadent Duos Joys and Desires in Rumba Cubana.
This is a nice product which is a liquid blush and a lip gloss. I love multi-purpose travel friendly products and this is one of them. The lip gloss is lovely but the blush is just amazing, I am totally in love. The formula is not heavy at all and it’s easy toRead More
