This is a review I wrote for one of my friends here on WordPress back in January, I am only publishing it now, hope this is a helpful review that will prevent you from buying another unnecessary product out there! 

Mary from Budget Grad Student has recently asked me to review one of the products she received in her Influenster Cosmo Vox Box. Which I agreed to do! Unfortunately with all the holidays and somewhat hectic work schedule, I am only able to do it now. I actually think it’s better this way, because I’ve been using this fragrance for almost 2 weeks now.

Of course every girl loves perfume, but not all perfume is good. And even though “Bath & Body Works travels the world to find the latest trends and most beautiful scents. They never rest in their commitment to bring the world’s newest freshest fragrances for body, hand and home” I was a tad bit disappointed in the scent.

The sample came in a cute little 0.25 oz/7 ml bottle, which made it super portable and easy to carry around, which I did! Took it to work almost every day!

To me the scent was very sweet and floral, turns out my nose wasn’t all that wrong! Here is the Overview you can find on the website:

Our most luxurious longest lasting fragrance blends opulent notes of fiery red pomegranate and delicate peche de vigne, a rare and fleeting French peach. Soft petals of red osmanthus give way to notes of addictive velvety marshmallow and a surprising finale of rich vanilla rum that leaves an unforgettable impression.

  • Top Notes: Fiery Pomegranate, Rare French Peach, Luminous Apple
  • Mid Notes: Red Peony, Night Marigold, Red Osmanthus
  • Dry Notes: Rich Vanilla Rum, Velvety Marshmallow, Oak Wood

Marshmallow! That explains it! Mary, you would’ve totally had a headache!

Now long lasting factor was something that I was looking forward to! Not a lot of fragrances last on me, but after trying this one, I have to say one thing:

I had fragrances from CVS pharmacy, that lasted longer!

And even though the scent decided to stay on me for only two hours or so, it did make it way into my head, and gave me a headache as well!

Then I discovered that the perfume itself cost $44.50 (of course it comes in a 2.5 oz bottle!), add a few more dollars and you can afford a really nice Lancome or Estee Lauder fragrance.

All in all it wasn’t very long lasting and too much Vistoria Secretish to me, I’d definitely think twice, even thrice before purchasing this scent! There is so much more one can do with 45 bucks!

Don’t forget to check out Mary’s blog and let me know if you’ve tried this fragrance!

Недавно одна моя знакомая блоггер – Мэри с Budget Grad Student попросила сделать обзор на присланный ей продукт. Многие из вас знают про сайт Influenster.com и про коробочки пробников, которые они высылают абсолютно бесплатно. Я конечно же согласилась. К сожалению со всей этой праздничной суматохой пост выходит только сегодня, но лучше поздно, чем никогда!

Так вот Мэри пришла так называемая Cosmo Vox Box, в которой находился пробник нового аромата от Bath and Body Works Forever Red. Дело в том, что у нее аллергия на запахи, они вызывают у нее головную боль, поэтому обзор делаю я.

Какая девушка не любит парфюм. Но духи духам рознь. И, хотя, Bath and Body Works заявляют, что “они ищут новые тренды и самые утонченные ароматы по всему свету, что их миссия принести в ваш дом новые и самые свежие запахи”, я была немного разочарована в их последних духах.

Пробник пришел в милой 7 мл бутылочке, это позволяет носить его с собой в сумке, что я и делала!

Мне запах показался сладким и цветочным, и как оказалась, я не ошиблась! Вот как описывают аромат сами производители на сайте:

Наш самый люксовый и стойкий аромат сочетает в себе нотки огненно красного граната и утонченного peche de vigne, редкого и мимолетного французского персика. Мягкие лепестки красного османтуса придают запах притягательного бархатного зефира. А в самом конце как будто сюрпризом раскрывается глубокий запах ванильного рома, оставляющий незабываемое впечатление.

Высокие нотки: Огненный Гранат, Редкий Французский Персик, Яркое Яблоко

Средние нотки: Красный Пион, Ночная Календула, Красный Османтус

Сухие нотки: Насыщенный Ванильный Ром, Бархатный Зефир, Древесина Дуба

Зефир! Теперь все понятно! У Мэри точно была бы головная боль!

Аромат был также заявлен, как стойкий, чего я очень ждала! Не все ароматы на мне держатся, но попробовав этот запах, могу сказать только одно:

Now long lasting factor was something that I was looking forward to! Not a lot of fragrances last on me, but after trying this one, I have to say one thing:

I had fragrances from CVS pharmacy, that lasted longer!

And even though the scent decided to stay on me for only two hours or so, it did make it way into my head, and gave me a headache as well!

Then I discovered that the perfume itself cost $44.50 (of course it comes in a 2.5 oz bottle!), add a few more dollars and you can afford a really nice Lancome or Estee Lauder fragrance.

All in all it wasn’t very long lasting and too much Vistoria Secretish to me, I’d definitely think twice, even thrice before purchasing this scent! There is so much more one can do with 45 bucks!

Chase the Fall Blues Away with Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle

I always find myself in the candle aisle when fall comes around. I don’t know if it’s the fall blues, or the fact that I always want my apartment smelling like fresh baked goods, fireplace, cinnamon, and other holiday goodness, but today I wanted to share some thoughts on the Bath and Body Works candles that can be found either in store, or on line at http://www.bathandbodyworks.com!
I received this miniature candle in my BloggerVoxBox a couple weeks ago:
As you know Influenster.com is a website that sends you free products to try if you qualify, so I received this candle absolutely free of charge, but it only retails for $3.50, which I think is a really good price for this brand, and you know that when you buy Bath and Body works it’s going to smell great, unlike some weird candles found in random places 🙂
Here is what the manufacturer tells us about the candle: Highly fragranced candle exclusively developed and tested by our team of Home Fragrance experts, including the world’s best master perfumers. Made using the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance
My candle came in “Black Pepper Bergamot” scent. I knew I loved Bergamot, but in my Earl Gray tea. The candle turned out to be smelling great. It was a rather masculine scent, my husband enjoyed it, and it worked well in my kitchen.
The only thing that I disliked about this product is the fact that the candle burned out leaving a pretty thick layer of wax on the bottom. It felt like a giant waste. And you know how I hate being wasteful!
So give this product a shot if you’d like, I do recommend it as a small decorative scented motive!
Have a great Friday everyone!
Is anyone going thrifting?
