Jennifer Behr Spring 2014

So far Fashion Week has been underwhelming. It’s so depressing. Until I saw Jennifer Behr’s collection of headpieces. I’ve never heard of this designer and now I’m in ~love~! I have super curly hair so wearing any of these would end in an emergency pixie cut, but I still love them.

I love these so much. $500 seems like a good deal for an instant princess kit. My husband doesn’t agree…yet. Check out the rest of her collection including a whole bridal line here.

Perfume Review: Cartier Declaration

I got a sample of Cartier Declaration from  Sephora and I’m surprised by it.

The bottle looks a bit strange. I’m not sure I would even want to display it. To me this smells like a men’s fragrance. I associate spicy fragrances with cologne, but this is marketed as a perfume. Cartier created this scent with aprox. 1 millions notes in it. I can’t smell most of them in this though. The cardamom and bitter orange are very strong, but the cedar evens the bitterness out. When it’s wet the caraway is strong, but upon drydown the bitter orange because the dominant note. I love this fragrance for men, but it’s not for me.

tl;dr: 5/5 spicy and smooth citrus

Perfume Review: Rosabotanica

I got the March VIB gift from Sephora early and I’m so glad. It’s a Balenciaga gift box with a square scarf and a small sample of the new Rosabotanica by Cristobal Balenciaga. I am in love with this new scent. I might need a full-size.

I’m in love with this scent. I MAYBE bought the full-size in between writing this post and editing. In bottle it smells exactly like Florabotanica which I hated, but on skin it’s completely different. It’s a nice even mix of fig and rose. It’s not my favorite tea rose. It’s more like a Damask Rose absolute. This scent is a combo of Imogen Rose by Lush and Philosykos by Diptyque. This all sits on top of a beautiful woodsy middle featuring vetiver. I always thought I didn’t like vetiver, but it works beautifully in this scent. It’s a strong scent with moderate to soft sillage so it’s perfect for work and other places where humans gather.

tl;dr: 5/5 woodsy and deep rose/fig scent.
