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

CLASSIFICATION: gourmand, ever so slightly powdery

AGE GROUP: perfect for any age

I was visiting with my sister for the weekend, she was finishing up getting ready to go out while I browsed her new magazine selection. I came upon an advertisement for the (at the time) new fragrance from Gwen Stefani, and immediately became excited. I admired many of the pieces from her fashion line L.A.M.B., and expected this fragrance to be ultra-fun, ultra-flirty, and ultra-sassy. We went to Nordstrom’s right away so that I could investigate further…
