Doesn’t Flirt’s new perfume, Flowerific ($35, available at Kohls in February), look totally trippy? Look at those colorful posies! The whole thing makes me feel like I’m in some brightly lit, pyschedelic flower fantasy, LOL!
I was really expecting the scent to reflect the packaging, but Flowerific’s a surprisingly simple perfume — a light floral that starts off with a burst of honeysuckle and freesia before settling into a light water lily. Despite its lack of dimension, I think it’s a lovely fragrance that reminds me of sandals and floral dresses.
Each of the notes in the scent reveal themselves quickly, and, like early spring blossoms, Flowerific doesn’t last very long. I spritzed it on my wrist at breakfast, and by lunch it was mostly gone.
No problemo, though, because sometimes I prefer lighter scents, and I think Flowerific will totes work for me in the spring.

If heavy perfumes tend to give you a headache and you’re sniffing around for something light and feminine, you might really like Flowerific. I’m guessing it would also wear well with most scented lotions and body washes, particularly those with similar notes, like Bath & Body Works Freesia and Dove Go Fresh in Water Lily. If you like those scents, you might enjoy Flowerific, too.
Still lovin’ ya, Big Red!
I’m a little bummed today because El Hub and I had to say g’bye to our little pickup truck, Big Red. Her engine conked out (210,000 miles), and we’re donating her to the American Cancer Foundation. Today we said our last goodbyes…
She was one of the reasons I fell in love with El Hub. There’s something hot about boys in trucks. On our very first date he dropped me off at home in Big Red, and as I was getting out everything in my purse spilled onto the seat.
El Hub just smiled kindly (he was trying to be smooth) while I picked up all 20 tubes of lipgloss (LOL!). That’s when El Hub oh-so-slyly said, “Don’t worry… if I find anything else I’ll just give it back to you the next time I see you.”
I know it’s a little silly to be pining over a car, but I have so many good memories connected to her. She will be missed!
