What is one thing you can never have enough of? For me, it's perfume!

What I have found, is that it takes a lot of tries to find the buys...but when you find them...ooooh to the buys!!  Join me on my journey of becoming a bonafide fraghead. That's a title I wear proudly. :)

Pinterest Boards

Check out my Pinterest Boards where I currently have over 900 fragrances pinned. Interact with me on the boards and share with me what fragrances you like too. I'd love to hear about them.




Amouage Sunshine Woman is the best tobacco fragrance I have ever tried.


Chabaud: Lait de Biscuit is a warm, cozy gourmand fragrance.


Hypnotic Poison: one of the most unique almond/vanilla fragrances around.

Dolce & Gabbana

Devotion is the perfect gift idea for Valentine's Day.



Realistic Juicy Delicious Citrus: Pomeloflow

Peony Pop light and airy, perfect for Spring.

Tonkandy is a Fall delight with its caramel, vanilla and Tonka Bean notes.

House of Sillage

Minnie Mouse: Raspberry, Marshmallow, & Vanilla Goodness! Limited Edition

Tiara from House of Sillage is a pleasant, soft floral fragrance. Good for everyday wear. 

The cupcake has Swarovski Crystals adoring the top of it. Such a gorgeous bottle.

House of Sillage Signature Discovery Parfum Set

Try before your commit to a full-sized bottle. This was a fun set to work through.

So many good fragrances.



Love Don't be Shy Extreme is a limited edition from Kilian. Gourmand. Beautiful. 



Three Lancome Fragrances  ( La Nuit EDP, La Nuit, a la Folie , and La vie Est Belle)

Side Note: These bottles!!!
Update: I have added a fourth Lancome fragrance to this post (La Nuit Tresor Nude)

Still a favorite years later! La Nuit Tresor from Lancôme.
Citrus, Coconut and Vanilla
Perfect for summer.

La Vie Est Belle Intensement
Shares the DNA profile with its sister, La Vie Este Belle, but the raspberry makes it a little more bubbly.

The Iris Dragées from the Maison Lancôme line is magical.



Secret Genius is my all-time favorite Pinrose fragrance. 

Try a petal sampler kit, or take their scent quiz to see what might be your perfect match. 

This is a CLEAN fragrance company. 

You can buy full-sized bottles, travel size, candles, lotion and more.

These towelettes are perfect for travel (no spilling/breaking and you can tuck them in your pocket)!

Rosy & Earnest

Be Earnest from Rosy & Earnest reminds me of Creed Aventus, except it is 100% unisex. EWG Certified!

Top notes of rhubarb and apple.
Mid Notes that are floral.
Base Notes of Canadian Fir Balsam, Virginia Cedarwood and Musk (synthetic musk)

What I get is a crisp, fresh Fir and Cedar mix that makes me so very happy. 

Vanilla Rum Royal sweet, sensual dark rum fragrance. This one is great for date night!

Viktor & Rolf

Bon Bon from Viktor & Rolf is perfect any time of year, but it really shines in the Fall. Rich caramel scent that I love.

Get perfume samples delivered every single month. Easy to sign up, easy to cancel. Make your cue up to 12 months ahead of time, if you like! $19.95 to start and they have hundreds of fragrances to choose from, some of which are very expensive (no mark-up to try them) and very hard to find (like the Kilian Single Malt I tried above). My favorite perfume subscription service is Royalty Scents!

I tried Kilian's Single Malt, Moschino's Toy 2 Bubble Gum and Tom Ford's White Suede. 

My thoughts and more information on the service can be found HERE.

Scents Event is the perfect place to find niche samples. They have:

  • A large selection of niche fragrances
  • Many hard-to-find fragrances
  • Reasonable pricing
  • Quality decants to house the fragrances
  • Optional twist-up atomizer
  • Spray sample bottles (except for the very smallest size, which is a dabber)
  • Great customer service
  • Fast shipping
I found two scents that are perfect for summer: Louis Vuitton's Afternoon Swim (which I already knew I loved but wanted to be sure since it's been awhile) and Christian Dior's Rouge Trafalgar.
