New Scent for Spring?

Fancy a new scent for spring? Good, because I have seven to share with you! I've tried these gorgeous fragrances over the last few months, and here's my take on them.   1. Alaia Nude Eau De Parfum, from £67, available now, Debenhams I like this one a lot. Firstly I love the 1970s-style bottle. Then I love the headiness of it.

I'd suggest spending a bit of time thinking  of Spring - guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face! I've been getting into the spring mood with a sniff of Clinique's lovely Happy in Bloom Limited Edition fragrance which comes out at the end of January. Maybe you got the … [Read more...]
