Guerlain Meteorites Le Parfum

I absolutely love the smell of Meteorites powder, so I was excited when I learned that Guerlain would be releasing it in perfume form. Although when it became available in stores, I resisted buying in spite of my worry it might be limited edition. #firstworldproblems

I gave in and bought a bottle when the Guerlain shops had a limited price reduction offer. I have no regrets, though. 😀

The Guerlain Meteorites Le Perfume comes in a round glass bottle with spray. There is no travel-friendly variant available to my knowledge, which sucks for me.

It has, of course, the Meteorites signature light, floral, powdery, woody scent, which I truly love.聽 Its longevity is quite good in my experience, and the scent doesn’t easily disappear as I noticed when I sweat from my morning long walks to work.

I’ll definitely purchase if a hair mist or body oil Meteorites came out, but until then, I’ll repurchase this perfume once I’m out. 😊聽

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Creme

One reason I was keen on summer season was so I can use the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Cream. Its fragrance is just perfect for the season.

In the website, the body cr猫me is said to be a seductive, sun-kissed fragrance of Bronze Goddess. I don’t know the scent of a Bronze Goddess, but OK. LOL! Seriously though, its scent reminds me of summer, sand, and water.

Boyfriend-bait EDT

This Jimmy Choo will get you a man. — Salesman from a pop-up store told me.

I jokingly replied that if that doesn’t happen, I would return the bottle.

August and September scents

I’ve forgotten to blog my August scent, so I’m posting it here with my September scent. 馃檪

Playboy Body Mist in Play It Lovely…

Playboy Body Mist - Play It Lovely
August scent/p>

Play It Lovely is a mix of floral and fruity scents. Its top notes are blackberry, juicy pear & cherry baby orchid. This isn’t strong; good for everyday use, but the longevity is where it fails. It doesn’t even last an hour on a hot day. That’s why I used this for August when it’s the rainy season when I wouldn’t perspire so much. :3

Shabby’s November scents are from Avon and Bath and Body Works

They are:

Avon EDT Be鈥issable 001v2 Warm Vanilla Sugar Fine Fragrance Mist 001v2
Avon Be…Kissable and Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar

I received Be…Kissable as a gift. I thought I wouldn’t be able to use it anymore when I have forgotten about it. I found its box realized I haven’t used it ever. Be…Kissable has a very feminine and flirty scent. Should you know me irl, you would think it is unlikely of me to be wearing it.

September scent

My September scent is one of my favorites:

Bath & Body Works - Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Spray v2
Bath & Body Works’ Japanese Cherry Blossom (probably my fourth bottle)

It has a fresh, floral, vanilla, musk, and woody fragrance with even a hint of cinnamon. This is a great everyday scent; very down-to-earth, but still girly and fun. This may be for night out or dates, but just to make you smell fresh and not too sexy to make your crush or SO’s heart skip a beat. I find it non-irritating to my nose even when I spritz on more than usual. Longevity is moderate and sillage can be moderate to heavy. I will never get tired of this Japanese Cherry Blossom. It’s the first B&BW scent that I liked and I have been using this for years. I hoarded even its variants of body wash, antibacterial hand gel, and shampoo. I matched this with its body lotion which is milder smell than the body spray.

Shabby’s summer 2013 scents

Longevity of fragances is important for me in this bloody summer heat. I sometimes end up sweating like crazy! I gotta smell good all day y’know when there’s a pogi guy around. XD Oh, just a short notice — I like and have a lot of sample perfumes. 馃槢

These are my scents this summer:

Salvatorre Ferragamo – Attimo

Salvatorre Ferragamo - Attimo 001-003

Salvatorre Ferragamo - Attimo 004v2

Tried once and have been using ever since. It has soft scent of florals, fruits, and a base of wood and musk. Nothing extraordinary with the scent, honestly, but I like that it is not strong and having it on will make one feel classy. Longevity is not at par as the following two, but it does stay on for most of the average working hours.
