Cool Water Game by Davidoff

Cool Water Game by Davidoff

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): – Lemon, Aquatic Note, Freesia, White Lily, Sandalwood, Exotic Fruit, Spices, Cedar, Musk

I guess you can say that I have a soft spot for Davidoff, as Cool Water was my fragrance of choice in my early high school days. I saw Cool Water Game at my local Marshall’s ($8.99 USD for a 1 fl oz bottle!) over the weekend, and decided to give it a try.

XOXO

NOTES (as listed on fragrantica.com): musk, sandalwood, passion fruit, white apricot, bergamot, tahitian vanilla

Yet another good ol’ impulse buy, the cute pink box of XOXO was what really drew me to it. I knew nothing of this fragrance, having never read reviews, and there not being a tester where I bought it (it was purchased at the same time as my Roxy Love; see two entries back from this one).

CLASSIFICATION: clean, unique, very slightly flowery/floral

AGE GROUP: college

SIMILAR SCENT(s): n/a

FORM: eau de parfum

Versace Bright Crsytal
Versace Bright Crystal

Versace Bright Crystal

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): iced accord, yuzu, pomegranate, peony, magnolia, lotus flower, acajou, vegetal amber, musk

I had heard of Versace Bright Crystal (and even had smelled it) before, but I must not have gotten a very good whiff, combined with that I didn’t get to smell it on my own skin (a co-worker brought it in, but I was already wearing perfume; I only got to smell it on other girls), because it didn’t leave a lasting impression. Upon receiving a sample of it a few days ago, I was eager to test it on myself. I was very pleasantly surprised!

CLASSIFICATION: feminine, clean, floral

AGE GROUP: college

Britney Spears Curious

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): tuberose, magnolia, sandalwood, vanilla infused musk, pear, and jasmine.

I was curious to smell Curious by Britney Spears again (excuse the terrible pun); I had sampled her debut perfume when it first came out, and ruled it out right away. However, I saw a roll-on scent stick when shopping for perfumes today that was ultra-cheap, and couldn’t resist.

CLASSIFICATION: floral, feminine

AGE GROUP: perfect for anyone / mature

FORM: Perfumed Shimmer Stick

Guess New
Guess New

Guess New

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): amber, freesia, tangerine, muguet, green apple, peach, peony, musk

I bought this on a whim, with a gift card that was going to expire. I wanted to smell it prior to purchase, as I hadn’t even so much as READ about it at that point, but there was no tester. Since I had to spend the gift card or lose it, I went ahead and got it. Quite the opposite of my Wrapped With Love purchase, Guess New went down in history as one of my best “uneducated” perfume purchases.

CLASSIFICATION: clean, fresh, feminine

AGE GROUP: college

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Versace Bright Crystal

FORM: eau de parfume
