Scent Addicts – Perfume reviews, fragrance news, & more!


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

Can Can was the first Paris Hilton fragrance that I ever considered buying, but ironically, it was the last fragrance that I actually went ahead and bought.  I would always sample it in the store, though, and I always had mixed feelings on it… sometimes I loved it, sometimes I hated it.

CLASSIFICATION: gourmand, ever so slightly powdery

AGE GROUP: perfect for any age

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Fantasy by Britney Spears

Aquolina Pink Sugar

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): Bergamot, Sicilian Orange, Raspberry, Fig Leaves, Lily of the Valley, Licorice, Strawberry, Red Fruit, Cotton Candy, Vanilla, Caramel, Musk, Wood, Powder.

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.

CLASSIFICATION: Candy. Baked goods.

AGE GROUP: Teen or younger

SIMILAR SCENT(s): N/A

FORM: Eau de Toilette

Marc Jacobs Blush
Marc Jacobs Blush

Marc Jacobs Blush

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): orange flower, honeysuckle, sandalwood, nectar, musk, freesia, and wood

It took a lot of concentration to spray Blush on myself without having a pre-disposed opinion of it; I had previously tested another [more popular] Marc Jacobs fragrance (Daisy) and was less than thrilled with the results.

CLASSIFICATION: singular floral

AGE GROUP: college / [more so] mature

SIMILAR SCENT(s): n/a

FORM: eau de parfum
