I’m pretty sure this makes me smell like Rihanna

12 Sep

It had been some time (read years) since I used a body mist or spray.  I used to be a fan of them in the summer.   Somehow overtime I just sort of stopped buying them.

However, one day this summer I came into my local Walgreens and was presented with a wall of body sprays.  There were so many!  I was mesmerized!

What quickly caught my eye was the collection from Rihanna, which has at least 3 different scents.

Rihanna

I choose Nude 🙂  It was the softest scent.  I thought it was layer nicely under any fragrance I would wear in a day and it would also wear well alone.  Best price, it was only $7.99!

Nude by Rihanna smells sweet, but delicate. It’s only over sticky candy sweet like some body mists can be.  It fades in about 2-3 hours.  It layers well with other perfumes.

I’m thinking of buying the other mists from the collection: Rihanna Riri and Rihanna Reb’l Fleur.

The description of the items on the Walgreens site gives some idea of what these will smell like.  Riri is a flora, and Reb’l Fleur is probably a musk.  Either way,  as with Nude, I think they will also layer well and wear well on their own.

What do you guys think of body mists?  Do you like them?  Do you wear them alone or with other scents?

Thanks for reading!

Review – Harvey Prince Cherie Blossom fragrance

Such cute packaging!

And I loved this scent.  It is so perfect for spring and summer.  It smells like cherries and sweet and lovely.  LOVE.

Downside – this did NOT last on me AT ALL.  I couldn’t smell it within an hour.  Such a bummer.

I am hoping to find something similar with better staying power.

Here is what Harvey Prince says about the fragrance:

Reawaken the young, romantic you.

The blooming of the Cherry Blossom in Japan signifies the beginning of spring: new beginnings, a new season, and a new day. It’s time to find your own new beginning with Cherie Blossom.

A handsome French man whispers “ma chérie” to his beloved. Her lips are a delicate red, and she smells of sweet cherries. She knows the power of her beauty. She is flawless. She is ageless. Notes of pink grapefruit dance down her neck–the scent of eternal youth. She is his dream.

Cherie Blossom is the epitome of both rebirth in Japan and the power of a classic French seductress. Sweet, soft hints of Somet Sakura mingle with pink grapefruit and vanilla. A cool musk adds a touch of sophistication. Together, these fragrant notes play a song no man can resist. The woman who dares to wear Cherie Blossom feels timeless, and in truth, we look the way we feel.

Notes: Somei Sakura (Cherry Blossom), Pink Grapefruit, Cool Musk, Vanilla 
Style:  Delicate. Young. Passionate.
