So Good To Be Bad! Carolina Hererra:
Fashion designer Carolina Hererra’s name is synonymous with feminine elegance and glamour. She’s created a number of fragrances. However, the one that really is covetable is one of the many types of Carolina Hererra’s “Good Girl.” That’s because each of the “Good Girl” collection fragrances is housed in a glass stiletto with a mile-high gold “heel” to steady the bottle. The spray EDP is accessed through the top of the back part of the shoe. Therefore, it’s the modern, adult version of the iconic Cinderella glass slipper.
My choice for this story is Good Girl Legere Women Eau De Parfum Spray( 2.7 oz $116). Good Girl Legere is an Amber Floral, launched in 2018. The nose behind this fragrance is Louise Turner. The fabulous bottle was designed by Italian glassmaker Bormioli Luigi. Of course the outer carton says: “it’s so good to be bad.”
The top notes are Ylang-Ylang, Mandarin Orange, Lemon, and Bergamot. Middle notes are Jasmine, Tuberose, Orange Blossom, and Bulgarian Rose. For the base, you’ll smell Dulce de leche, Praline, Tonka Bean, Cinnamon, Sandalwood, Cashmirwood, Amber, Musk, Patchouli, and Cedar.
Although I never smelled the original, Good Girl Legere is described as a softer floriental/gourmand than the original. Much to my liking, the tuberose is toned down. The fruits are omnipresent at first, but they quickly blow off so you can enjoy the florals. At the drydown I enjoyed a soft spice that stayed on my skin for a long time. Orientals and even some florientals can sometimes be overwhelmingly heavy, but Good Girl Legere speaks fairly softly from her sexy stiletto. My bottle was sent to me by fragrancenet.com
Wit & West Natural Botanicals:
Out of the Wit & West collection I tried Habari Eau de Parfum. This very unisex scent is right up my personal alley. It has a deep, spicy, incense vibe that lasts on your skin. The website says that Habari is…”Bearing the name of the quintessential greeting on the savannas of the Serengeti. this fragrance welcomes one to the crackling campfire as the incomparable sunset wanders toward spirited re-tellings of the day’s adventures.”
Delightful, Delicious, Eau So Decadent:
Tocca’s Beloved Scents in Beautiful Minis:
Florence (key notes of bergamot, pear, and gardenia) and Cleopatra (key notes of Grapefruit, Jasmine, Vanilla Musk). The hard-sided box encourages you to “Love Yourself” on the side. A nice touch for V-day!
