When buying beauty products I try to only buy when things are on sale or I have a discount code. But, let’s be honest these sales rarely if ever apply to high end perfumes.

If there ever is a perfume discount code it usually only happens once a year or requires you to buy a whole big giftset. However, what if I told you you could get a discount on perfume every single day?

Well now you can! FragranceNet.com has a wide variety of authentic high end perfumes and other beauty products available at a discount every single day!

Some scents like say Calvin Klein has perfumes are automatically 20-50 dollars below retail. However, fear not if you like rare designer brands like Dior or Chanel. You can still save money on these brands by using the special coupons fragrancenet.com has. They usually give discounts on your 1st order and via email after that. Want the latest code? Scroll down…

Let’s take a peek at an example:
Miss Dior Cherie retails for:$85
FragranceNet charges:67.83 when you use the current coupon code

Miss Dior Cherie’s notes are:
Italian Mandarin Essence, Egyptian Jasmine Absolute, and Indonesian Patchouli Essence.

It is such a classy sophisticated scent. It is slightly sweet and slightly musky. However, it is never too overwhelming.

Overall, I love expensive perfumes, but I hate paying hugely inflated prices. I love being able to get a deal on fragrancenet .com so I can buy my holiday gifts and still have enough left over to treat myself to a new rollerball!

Our Moment is the first perfume by the teen pop band One Direction. I’m sure it’s already on all their fan’s lists, but I think it deserves a second glance from grown women too!

Our Moment by One Direction Perfume Review

Scent type:fruity floral

Top Notes:
Pink Grapefruit, Wild Berries, and Redcurrants

Middle Notes:
Jasmine Petals, Fresh Freesia, Frangipani

Dry Down Notes:
Creamy Musk, Sheer Woods, White Patchouli

My Thoughts:To me it smells very citrusy at first. It definitely leans more fruity than floral in my opinion. It is lightly sweet, but has a bit of a acidic bite that prevents it from being too sweet like many celeb scents. It dries down to a musky vanilla that is more seductive than sweet.

The bottle: I absolutely adore the bottle. The pink perfume is housed in a textured bottle. The top is adorned with a pink tutu and a crown. It makes me feel like a Princess every time I use it!

Lasting Power: The only downside to this scent is that it only lasted around 4 hours on my skin.

Available as:
Rollerball $20
1.7 oz. EDP $49.50
3.4 oz. $59.50

at Sephora

I’ve also seen gift sets popping up in the department stores!

What do you think about One Direction’s 1st fragrance? Do you think they should do a sequel?

1.Roland Pine Shea Butter Soap ($8) by: The Soap and Paper Factory

We don’t get a real Christmas tree, but boy does this scent take me back to when we did! It is green and woodsy and super moisturizing. Perfect for pampering yourself after a long day of shopping! Can’t get enough pine? Roland Pine is also available as a reed diffuser and candle!

Available at:Soap and Paper Factory.com


2. Vanilla Bean Noel: By Bath and Body Works ($14)
This creamy vanilla scent smells like fresh baked cookies. I cannot get enough of it, and always buy backups around the holidays



3.Twisted Peppermint: By Bath and Body Works ($14)
This minty scent smells just like a peppermint candy cane. I also think it helps give me energy/focus.


4. Eggnog by: Demeter ($12)
Sweet creamy eggnog with a slightly spicy twist. Best of all this bottle will never go bad, so you can enjoy the scent all year long.


5.Gingerbread by: Demeter ($12)
This slightly sweet slightly spicy scent smells just like a gingerbread house. I think I even detect a whiff of icing!

Mark Fragrance Pencils Review

While poking through the latest mark catalog I saw these pencils. I thought the packaging was pretty and that it was probably an eye liner or maybe a lip stain.


Wrong!

These are Mark’s  fragrance pencils. I’ve never seen anything like them(please correct me if I’m wrong.)

The pencils themselves reveal a clear gel like tip.

Mark Fragrance Pencils Review

The holiday set comes with 4 scents:
1. Very Sassy
Notes: Black currant, floral yellow jasmine, and earthy musk. It is a clean slighly tart citrus scent to me. It makes you smell nice, without being too strong.

2. Jewel
Notes: Lily,Vanilla, Caramel

This was my favorite of the 4. Is is a fruity sweet scent that reminds me of Viva La Juicy.

3. Celebrate
Notes:Citrus,Plum, Jasmine and Lily of the Valley
Celebrate is a seductive fruity floral.

4. Jewel Shine
Notes: Bergamot,Gardenia, and Marshmallow
Jewel is a soft white floral.

Application:
You’ll want to “draw” on your pulse points with these. It feels a bit tacky at first but when you rub it in this disappears.

Packaging: I really like the colorful packaging. However, there are 2 things I don’t like. One they are really hard to open! You’ll want to turn and twist to break this vacuum seal.

Also, one of my pencils had the gel part stuck 1/2 way up inside. I’m not sure why, but the only option is to sharpen it to a nub. :(

Overall, this set is a great way to try out Mark’s perfumes. I also think it’d be a great gift. You could always open it up and toss 1 in each of your bestie’s gift bags.

Which scent do you think you’d like best? Have you ever tried a perfume pencil?

 

Katy Perry Killer Queen Review

I’ve also considered Katy Perry to be different from the rest of today’s pop stars. Her dark hair, personality, and music all seem to set her apart.

Therefore it is only fitting her fragrance be different from all the other celeb scents out there. If you are expecting another sugary sweet, pop star perfume you’ll be sorely disappointed. However, if you don’t mind something a little darker/spicier I think you’ll enjoy this one.

Katy Perry Killer Queen Review

Killer Queen’s Notes are as follows:
Top Notes:Dark Plum, Wild Berries and Bergamot

Middle Notes:Red Velvet Flower, Rainbow Plumeria and Natural Jasmine Sambac

Dry Down:Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart and Liquid Praline

It opens up with a dark burst of fruit. It isn’t juicy or sweet, but more mysterious and seductive. As it dries down it takes on a spicier woody scent.

It lasted around 6 hours on my skin.

It is worth nothing I love the sparkling bottle, but wish it had a stand. I’m constantly afraid of knocking it off my perfume shelf.

It is available as a:
1.0 oz EDP:$39.00
1.7 oz EDP:$49.00
3.4 oz EDP:$59.00
Body Lotion:$20.00

Have you tried Killer Queen? Do you like or hate celeb scents?
