Couldn’t wait to try this! doesn’t even BEGIN to sum up how badly I wanted to smell Dolly Girl On The Beach, to cradle it in my arms and love it as if it had come directly from my womb (and, yeah, I’M JOKING to anyone who is laughing AT me and not WITH me).

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. What a unique excitement a scent addict feels when she gets a new bottle of perfume in the mail! 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!

Coming in September 2008, Harajuku Lovers perfume by Gwen Stefani! Five scents will be released in this line, all available in two sizes (10 mL and 30 mL) and in solid perfume form (as a set of all five). Each fragrance is molded after Gwen’s four real-life Harajuku girls (Love, [Lil’] Angel, Music, and Baby). The fifth scent shall represent their leader, “G.”
The bottles are two-piece “dolls” that are molded according to their real life Harajuku counterpart, making displaying these on your vanity counter that much more fun.
Below is what you can expect out of each of these scents:
Love — a floral with notes of bergamot, pomelo (citrus, a little like grapefruit), peach, rose, jasmine, orchid and musk
Lil’ Angel — a fruity floral with with notes of different berries (raspberry, cranberry, blackberry), pineapple, rose and amber
Music — a floral with notes of clementine, pear, jasmine, sweet pea, honeysuckle, vanilla and musk
Baby — a powder musk with freesia, bergamot, rose, jasmine, musk, heliotrope, vanilla and violet
G — a food lover’s fragrance with mandarin, coconut, apple, freesia and sandalwood

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.

I bought this on a whim, with a gift card that was going to expire. I wanted to smell it prior to purchase, as I hadn’t even so much as READ about it at that point, but there was no tester. Since I had to spend the gift card or lose it, I went ahead and got it. Quite the opposite of my Wrapped With Love purchase, Guess New went down in history as one of my best “uneducated” perfume purchases.
