Tommy Girl Jeans by Tommy Hilfiger

NOTES: mandarin, grapefruit, bitter orange, oceanic, herbaceous, chipotle woods

My great-Aunt bought the original Tommy Girl perfume for me not long after its debut in 1996. Although I liked it, and wore it from time to time, I never loved it. However, when shopping for perfumes last weekend, I happened upon a tester and sprayed it, and I find that I like it now much better than I did twelve years ago. As soon as I saw Tommy Girl Jeans for a super low price online, I decided to take the plunge, as it claims to be a fruiter version of the original.

CLASSIFICATION: Oriental/Spicy

AGE GROUP: College/Mature

I bought Ghost Summer Flirt on a whim, I had never smelled it but it was a very bargain price; an offer I couldn’t refuse.

It is a glory only a small few women will ever experience to it’s fullest, and I experienced it with Ghost Summer Flirt today!

Nina Ricci Pretty Nina

NOTES: grapefruit, green apple, raspberry, jasmine, Sambac blossom, caramel, apple tree accords, powdery vanilla, sensual musk.

Nina Ricci launched a new, special edition version of the ever-so-popular Nina (from 2006) earlier this year. The fragrance is supposed to be a younger, lighter, and sweeter version of the original version, and those that have smelled it have likened it to a candy store reminiscent of the olden days. I attempted to locate this perfume at my local mall, but without success. Desperate to sample what I figured would be a delectable scent straight from Heaven, I took the plunge and purchased a full size bottle on eBay.

CLASSIFICATION: unique, slightly fruity, slightly floral, slightly gourmand

AGE GROUP: college/mature

Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Heaven

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): Grapefruit, Seringa Flower, Apple, Pink Peony, Apricot, Hibiscus Flower Tea, Violet, Musk.

I was captivated by all things Salvatore Ferragamo, and decided to give this perfume a go. I figured with the success of the other scents we’ve sampled in his line, no harm would come of this purchase. Plus, anything in a cute bottle with grapefruit as a top note is worth the price of a mini.

CLASSIFICATION: Feminine, floral, fresh, fruity

AGE GROUP: Perfect for anyone

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Slightly similar to Incanto Shine.

FORM: Eau de Toilette
