The two fragrances queens met in the flesh last weekend for a fun-filled excursion of mystery, mayhem, and (of course) perfume!  Friday, the 19th, they finally got the tattoos they had been planning on getting for months, and then Saturday and Sunday left ample time to explore the fragrance counters for any new scents. And explore they did!

Check back for some hot new reviews from Rebecca and Jackie in the next week or so.  The Harajuku Lovers perfumes will be revealed to all those that haven’t had the chance to sample them yet, as well as a must have limited edition fruity floral shocker, and more!

Paris Hilton Can Can

First and foremost, to all loyal readers – I am so sorry for the lack of updates on my part!  Rebecca and I have been so busy with work lately, and I am also taking some fairly time consuming classes this semester.  Expect more updates, though.  I miss the perfume world.

Having said that, onto the review!

Can Can by Paris Hilton

Can Can by Paris Hilton

NOTES:  Clementine, Flowers, Cassis, Nectarine, Orchid, Orange Blossom, Soft Musk, Wood, Amber

Can Can was the first Paris Hilton fragrance that I ever considered buying, but ironically, it was the last fragrance that I actually went ahead and bought.  I would always sample it in the store, though, and I always had mixed feelings on it… sometimes I loved it, sometimes I hated it.
