Incanto Charms

Incanto Charms

Incanto Dream is one of my top five favorite fragrances, Jax had some pretty positive feedback on Incanto Shine, and neither of us thought that Incanto Heaven was terrible. So of course, I naturally wanted to try Incanto Charms.

CLASSIFICATION: Spicy, every so slightly fruity

Paris Hilton Heiress

NOTES: passion fruit, orange, peach granita, champagne mimosa, star jasmine, tiare flower, ylang-ylang, honeysuckle, dewberry blossom, grenadine, violet leaf, vetiver, tonka, blonde woods

All celebrity jokes aside, the original Paris Hilton fragrance is one of my favorite perfumes, ever. I took it upon myself to sample her collection, and Heiress was the second fragrance I purchased in her line. While I was not nearly as impressed with Heiress, I wasn’t terribly disappointed, either.

CLASSIFICATION: Flirty, fruity, floral, sweet

AGE GROUP: Teen / College

FORM: Eau de Toilette

Marc Jacobs Blush

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): orange flower, honeysuckle, sandalwood, nectar, musk, freesia, and wood

It took a lot of concentration to spray Blush on myself without having a pre-disposed opinion of it; I had previously tested another [more popular] Marc Jacobs fragrance (Daisy) and was less than thrilled with the results.

CLASSIFICATION: singular floral

AGE GROUP: college / [more so] mature
