Incanto Charms

Incanto Charms

Incanto Dream is one of my top five favorite fragrances, Jax had some pretty positive feedback on Incanto Shine, and neither of us thought that Incanto Heaven was terrible. So of course, I naturally wanted to try Incanto Charms.

CLASSIFICATION: Spicy, every so slightly fruity

AGE GROUP: college / mature

Paris Hilton Heiress

NOTES: passion fruit, orange, peach granita, champagne mimosa, star jasmine, tiare flower, ylang-ylang, honeysuckle, dewberry blossom, grenadine, violet leaf, vetiver, tonka, blonde woods

All celebrity jokes aside, the original Paris Hilton fragrance is one of my favorite perfumes, ever. I took it upon myself to sample her collection, and Heiress was the second fragrance I purchased in her line. While I was not nearly as impressed with Heiress, I wasn’t terribly disappointed, either.

CLASSIFICATION: Flirty, fruity, floral, sweet

AGE GROUP: Teen / College

Absolutely Givenchy

I purchased a mini of this scent from Fragrancenet.com during their last free shipping (no minimum purchase required) sale. I had absolutely no opinion on what kind of scent I would be receiving, as I had never actually read any kind of review. Has anyone ever tried this?

CLASSIFICATION: fresh, with a fruity opening, and a floral heart

AGE GROUP: Perfect for any age

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Slightly similar to Secret Wish by Ana Sui

FORM: Eau de Toilette

XOXO
XOXO

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

Another perfume purchased on a whim. A friend of mine had purchased another Incanto, and despite being apprehensive, I decided to give it a go. The list of notes is short and sweet, with nothing shocking or unidentifiable. Plus, the bottle is SO cute.

CLASSIFICATION: Feminine, floral, fresh, fruity

AGE GROUP: Perfect for anyone

SIMILAR SCENT(s): N/A

FORM: Eau de Toilette
