One of the things that make me feel good and pretty is knowing that I smell good. I usually have at least five different fragrances that I alternate between since I wear perfume EVERYDAY. Even if I am just going grocery shopping I will put some perfume on. Roller balls are my absolute favorite. Their portable and small enough to throw in your makeup bag.
Top of my "favorites" list is still "LUV" by Sharon Bolton Scents: "An intoxicating, ultimately feminine scent of rare pink gardenia, lush Hawaiian white flowers, and a hint of creamy vanilla with a delicate whisper of white musk." I don't know if I will ever find a fragrance that I love more. Although I do need to try out "Dream" from her line...it sounds divine: "A heady concoction of fresh bergamot, white freesia, and mimosa with accords of amber, sandalwood and exotic musk. That's what dreams are made of!"
For mother's day the kids took a trip to Sephora and got me the Juicy Couture roller ball fragrance and the Nanette Lepore roller ball fragrance. I couldn't be happier. I love them both!
The Juicy Couture fragrance notes: Watermelon, Mandarin, Pink Passion Fruit, Marigold, Green Apple, Water Hyacinth, Crushed Leaves, Tuberose Absolute, Wild Rose, Princess Lily, Tuberose, Caramel Créme Brule, Vanilla, Precious Woods, Patchouli.
The Nanette Lepore fragrance notes: Moonstone Rose, White Peach, White Cranberry Juices, Magenta Nectar, Black Currant, Orange Jasmine, Persian Lime Juice, Velvet Violet, Amber, Indian Sandalwood
I cannot forget to mention the other two fragrances taking residence in my purse: Alfred Sung "Always" and "Pretty" by Elizabeth Arden. These both are classic smelling fragrances and smell sooooo good and are very lightweight. They have floral, romantic, sweet notes. Keepers for my "classics" collection.
These days I am finding that I have more roller ball fragrances in my purse then lip gloss! So funny. At least I always smell delightful...even if I am just going to the grocery store.
Do yourself a favor and explore all of these wonderful fragrances. Who says you can't have a different perfume for everyday of the week?
