Heya, girls. What’s shakin’? El Hub and I are cruising the mall after finishing lunch at the Cheesecake Factory (can I just have cheesecake for the rest of my life, please?). Now I’m looking at makeup at Nordstrom while El Hub sits patiently on one of those black leather “boy benches” by the escalators. He has his iPhone and a full belly, so he’ll be fine for a while.
I’m on my way to the MAC counter for Sugarsweet goodies, but first I wanted to mention what I found at Philosophy. It’s a new fragrance called Unconditional Love. Have you caught a whiff yet?
The Philosophy counter folks tell me it just came in this week. It’s described as a fruity fragrance with notes of blackberry, vanilla and musk, and there are three items in the line: an eau de toilette ($40), a body wash ($22) and body lotion ($34).
I was just walking by the stand when I thought someone nearby was eating berry Life Savers, which I love. I stopped and realized the scent was coming from the Philosophy counter.
Combine the distinct but light blackberry scent with rain-kissed skin and a steaming hot cup of vanilla rooibos tea, and that’s how I think of Unconditional Love.
It has been raining since dawn, and the fragrance fits well with the weather.
Strong fruity fragrances can give me a headache, but Unconditional Love is soft and light, not cloying at all, and fitting for a Philosophy fragrance.
It’s on my wrists right now…
Okay, time for some Sugarsweets. Here I come, Aquavert and Cakeshop!
Hope you’re having a good day.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
