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.

Luscious Pink by Mariah Carey – Coming Soon

As reported by india-server.com, popcrunch.com, and highbridnation.com

Mariah Carey has recently announced details regarding the new perfume that she has been working on with Elizabeth Arden. The fragrance is set to be a flirty floral, with notes including the Tahitian Tiare flower, lily of the valley, pink peony, and white musk*.

Set to launch in August 2008, the bottle will be the same shape and design of her original fragrance (“M”), but this time with a girly, romantic hue of pink with a mother-of-pearlesque sheen in which blue and yellow will also be present. Interestingly enough, the bottle was not designed by Mariah – it was created by Jean Antretter, the senior design director at Elizabeth Arden.

Says Mariah, “Elizabeth Arden has been a fantastic partner and the end creation of Luscious Pink is beyond my expectatons. The response from my fans with my debut scent was overwhelming, and I can’t wait to see what happens with my second Luscious fragrance.”

Of the scent, Mariah explains that it is, “feminine, flirtatious and fun, and truly reflects where I am in my life now.”

Mariah will have some competition this August, as that is also when fellow songbird Jessica Simpson will release her debut perfume, Fancy, which is an altogether different scent (word has it that Fancy will be a floral-oriental fragrance, which can sometimes be a bit on the stronger/spicier side of scents).

Roxy for women

I was a little apprehensive about buying Roxy, despite the fact that it was dirt cheap at my local TJ Maxx.   Although I do not own any other Roxy brand products, I am familiar with their line, and I didn’t really think that their perfume would be a good match for me.  However, I had read the notes, and felt them to be non-offensive, so I figured I would purchase it.  Worst case scenario, I was out $15 – best case scenario, I found the perfume that I had been missing out on my entire life.
