Elizabeth Arden, Sharon Bolton, Benefit Cosmetics, Issey decide your favorite scent!

It’s that time of year where we get together with our family and friends and celebrate our family traditions. I absolutely love the fall and winter time. I love to embrace the Holidays—giving thanks for all that I hold dear, celebrating the birth of Jesus, and finally closing the year out with a big bang (usually my “big bang” is a good card game and a few drinks!)

Although Christmas time has a very spiritual meaning behind it in our family—we still enjoy the regular traditions of Santa Claus, holiday parties, and gift giving. It’s so much fun—especially those white elephant parties! That's why I would like to take the next couple of weeks to post on some fabulous gift ideas.

First on my list is fragrances! Who doesn’t enjoy a nice bottle of perfume? Also, It’s an item that people don’t always like to splurge on for themselves but can really appreciate it as a gift. I’d like to spotlight on: Badgley Mischka Fleurs de Nuit by Elizabeth Arden. This is my night time…going out…all glamed up perfume. I honestly feel like I have gone back in time to when getting dolled up was a glamorous event. I can imagine Marilyn Monroe putting on this scent before going to a Hollywood cocktail party. Badgley Mischka smells sophisticated and sensual. Check it out at! Just putting it on changes my mood and makes me feel sexy and flirty in a very confident way! This one’s a winner!

Another favorite that I have to mention is Sharon Bolton’s Luv. It comes in a handy rollerball that I always kept in my purse—until it was completely used up. I loved it as an everyday fragrance. It has a very warm-tropical-floral feel to it. I will be addicted for life! I think having a perfume oil in a rollerball form is brilliant. It makes it so easy to freshen up while you are out and about!

Maybe Baby by Benefit Cosmetics is a great gift to give. This is another light and flirty scent. Perfect to put on when you are having a sweet intimate evening with your loved one. I’ve continuously had this perfume for about four years. Love it!

Issey Miyake is a fragrance you absolutely cannot go wrong with. I think it smells good on everyone. It's light enough to be an everyday scent but has that warm undertone that makes it a more formal smelling scent. My husband bought me this perfume several years ago and it is one of my favorites. I try to keep it special just for him and wear it when we go out on a date or are spending the day together--alone! He loves it and I think he feels special that I have my own favorite scent that I wear just for him!

Happy gift giving and let me know what your favorite scents are too!
