Priceline: 40% Off Fragrances ( Tuesday 3rd & Wednesday 4th December2013)


If you haven't already heard; Priceline is having a crazy 40% off all fragrances for two days, starting Tuesday 3rd to Wednesday 4th of December 2013.
I've put together a little guide on what products you should definitely stop to smell or even pick up as Christmas gifts :) I have personally used these fragrances before, and have also gifted my sisters with these products.

Vera Wang
PRINCESS - 50ML
Sale: $47.40
RRP: $79.00

This is fragrance is one to fall in love with if you like to wear a subtle suggestion of fragrant Spring garden. I first started wearing this in high school, it was love at first sniff and I have been faithful to this fragrance ever since. There is nothing heavy or cloying about it, I like that it doesn’t overpower or hit people on the nose minutes before the wearer appears, so even up close it suggests a clean breeze carrying the scent of a bouquet of flowers .The scent is very floral and fresh, it's more created for the playful, unpredictable, independent woman who treats every day like an event or adventure. This is a woman who likes to make her own magic, this sheer, flirty blend of water lily, lady apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin are melded with sheer floral notes, accented with dark chocolate, and finished with a pink frosting accord, amber, warm woods, musk, and vanilla - a whimsical treat.

Katy Perry 
PURR - 30ML
Sale: $29.40
RRP: $49.00

Purr is a fruity scent. When I first smelled it, I smelled coconuts and a woody note. Then I began to smell some grape. Then some cherry-esque tartness. The fragrance is definitely more complex than I would have given a fuirty celebrity scent for, especially one by Katy Perry. The smell is pretty close to being wonderful. It's bright and happy and suits everybody's body chemistry, as far as I can tell. The notes are pretty linear throughout the 3-6 hours of wear time. The notes according to fragrantica are "top notes of peach, forbidden apple, gardenia and green bamboo with the heart of jasmine, pink freesia and Bulgarian rose and the base of vanilla orchid, creamy sandalwood, white amber, coconut and musk." It's a very fun summer-ish frangance. 



Lady Gaga 
FAME - 100ML
Sale: $65.40
RRP: $109.00

It is a full on sensual floral blend but nothing overpowering here that makes it unwearable or overwhelming. I think you just need to enjoy richer floral notes to get on board with the entire scent. The fragrance can’t really be described in terms of notes as it seems like they all come together here to create one single note. Belladonna is a dominate one though with floral layers of tiger orchid and jasmine sambac. There is some mix of apricot as well as honey and saffron which give the fragrance a certain sweetness. I wouldn’t call it a fruity sweet fragrance though but more a full bodied floral. There’s a rich warmth here but nothing that can be pegged down as being spicy or oriental, more mysterious and sensual. The formula is black, but sprays on clear, so don't worry. Your clothes won't have black dots on it.


Juicy Couture
VIVA LA JUICY - 100ML
Sale: $87.00
RRP: $145.00

Viva La Juicy is really beautiful. It starts out like citrus, and dries down slightly sweet, perfumery floral that is just lovely. It's definitely a very girly, sweet and feminine scent, but yet very flirty. It has it's mixed notes of Wild Berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jas,one, Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood and Praline. Not only is it perfect for Summer, but I feel as though its a fragrance that can be worn through out the whole year, even during the day. It's also got a beautiful bottle design that's cute and perfect for the dresser top to show off to your friends. This is a must have in every fragrance collection.
