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.

CLASSIFICATION: gourmand, ever so slightly powdery

AGE GROUP: perfect for any age

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Fantasy by Britney Spears

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf

NOTES: Tea, Bergamot, Sambac Jasmine, Cattleya Orchid, Freesia, Centifolia Rose, Musks, Patchouli

Flowerbomb may just be THE most popular fragrance of the decade, and for no other reason, I decided I would try it. I have seen it described as a chiefly gourmand scent, while others classify it as a “pink” floral, yet some others say it is a modern floriental. I had absolutely no expectations, so no matter what I thought of it, I was not to be disappointed.

CLASSIFICATION: Floriental, gourmand, sweet

AGE GROUP: Mature / Perfect for any age

SIMILAR SCENT(s): N/A

FORM: Eau de Parfum

Aquolina Pink Sugar

Upon the discovery that there are gourmand fragrances that appeal to me (i.e. Hilary Duff’s Wrapped With Love, 2008), I decided to purchase a sample vial of Aquolina’s Pink Sugar with my last fragrancenet.com shipment. I was counting on hating this fragrance, and let’s just say that I was definitely not disappointed.

CLASSIFICATION: Candy. Baked goods.

AGE GROUP: Teen or younger
