Seven Deadly Scents
Ok, so not deadly. But definitely sexy!
Whenever the Captain and I (who celebrated a birthday yesterday– happy birthday, baby!) go away, we have a "tradition" of getting a new scent. I never realized how very significant this was until weeks after our trip. I can smell my clothes, hair accessories, or the scent itself, and I am transported back in time. I can literally see, feel and experience everything I did on that trip. It’s very nostalgic for me.
I wondered if other luxelings were like that– and what day would you want to remember more than your wedding day? I’m not a big fan of scenting your event (as I saw suggested horrifically by one wedding glossy); I think it can have adverse reactions. However, I am all about scenting you. Your signature wedding scent should be all about YOU. Your personality, your inner diva, your wedding day, your love for your honey, and everything you want all of that to embody.
In Miami, we were able to scope out some new scents that j’adore! They really are beautiful…
I have loved Lolita Lempicka for years. For one, the little bottle is just too darn cute. A sweet little apple The scent is so light and sweet, and it’s not too overbearing, but subtle enough to be succulent.
Once upon a time in the mystical, magical, fairytale world of Lolita Lempicka, she conjured up the intoxicating sweet fragrance of Liquorice Flower, the floral notes of Iris Amarena a dash of violet and finished with hints of Vanilla, Musk and Patchouli…casting this spell on women, Lolita brought out their innermost femininity, strength and confidence ….take a step in to the wondrous world of Lolita Lempicka… and smell like a dream…
My first trip to Jamaica was Miami Glow, and I loved it! Then I smelled Live Luxe, and swooned! It’s fabulous! It’s sexy, it’s bold, and fresh. It contains pear, peach, amethyst freesia, muguet petals, musk, and amber.
Right next to Live Luxe was Deseo. The Captain adored this one! The bottle is pretty– and if your man likes it, then honey, you know you must get it! It has notes of watery bamboo leaves, garden yuzu, Sicilian bergamot, freesia, star jasmine, pink geranium flower, orange blossom, french mimosa, warm amber, oak moss, sensual musks, creamy sandalwood, cedarwood, patchouli, and mineral accord.
Apparently, it was inspired by a walk in Jennifer’s garden right before a thunderstorm. You can even get a free sample at www.jenniferlopezbeauty.com

These are just some of my recent favorites, but I have also liked:

2. Usher’s Usher for Him
3.) Anything by Escada (I so heart them!)
4.) Lancome’s Miracle and Allure Sport for (both for men)

I loooove Lolita Lempicka!! You should try Amore Amore by Cacharel & Euphoria by Calvin Klein.
I just bought one from avon…..Rouge from Christian Lacroix! That one I recently fell in love with. It’s woodsy and sweet.

I currently wear Vera Wang, but I also love Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy 2. I think they’ve since changed the name though. I’m also a fan of Pleasures by Estee Lauder. I tend to prefer more lightness and less musk.
I adore “Two Hearts Beating As One” from B Never To Busy To Be Beautiful. From their website:
In the art of perfumery, two of the noblest and oldest ingredients are rose and jasmine absolutes: two elements that symbolise the body. Rose, often used in soaps and body lotions today, is said to represent the scent of purity and cleanliness. Jasmine, on the other hand, represents impurity. Mark was curious to see if he could develop a scent which would bring about a perfect balance of rose and jasmine, as a metaphor for two hearts beating as one. He is a person fascinated by relationships and by parallels and their dilemma of choice. The book, or the film? The ballet, or the opera?
Interestingly, this perfect symbiosis of jasmine and rose balance refused to work. Initially, jasmine won through hands down proving, perhaps, that itâ€™s difficult to maintain an equal balance between purity and impurity. Initial results had the stunning impurity of jasmine with a rose veneer. We concluded that passion could not often be suppressed by purity.
Mark wanted to find a way of returning some of the more delicate qualities of the rose so that the metaphor of two hearts could be maintained. Some months later he worked on pushing the rose scent by adding some new materials, and shifting the balance.
This is a glorious, full-on floral fragrance that could be worn for the joy of it. But if you want to read the perfumery tealeaves, this scent expresses an olfactive yearning for wholeness and the experience of being as one with another person. Two hearts that beat as one.
Two Hearts Beating as One is loaded with precious absolutes. More than 10% of jasmine and more than 3% of rose. But thereâ€™s a lot more besides. Wild orange blossom neroli and neroli flowers and ylang all make Two Hearts fabulous, full and sensual. Celery seed adds transparence. Vetiver and sandalwood bring their woody warmth that makes the scent linger and the battle of the roses, rose over impure jasmine, lost forever…

There are scents that I smell and can be taken back in time more than 20 years. I can smell a type of lotion and think of the first business trip I took. Or the horrible cologne that AAAAALLLL the boys in high school wore. Or even more crazier, the ONLY cologne my husband can wear because he is pretty much allergic to the rest……I can smell it a mile away on another man.
