Candies For Women

Candies For Women

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): citrus and lavender, with floral middle notes of peony and ylang-ylang.

Candies perfume has always intrigued me, since their trendily young, sexy ad campaign years ago, which I remembered vividly when I decided to add this mini to my online shopping cart recently. From the notes, the marketing, the bottle, and some of the other reviews I had read, I was expecting something ultra-feminine, sexy, fun, young, and either very floral or fruity smelling.

CLASSIFICATION: spicy, masculine

AGE GROUP: mature

SIMILAR SCENT(s): n/a

FORM: eau de parfum

CLASSIFICATION: feminine, floral

AGE GROUP: college / mature

Paris Hilton for Women

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): Frozen Apple, Peach Nectar, Wet Ozone, Sparkling Muguet, Freesia, Mimosa, Jasmine, Tuberose, Skin Musk, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Oakmoss, Pheromone.

As this is easily one of my favorite perfumes of all time, I should have written this review on day one. However, I just kept putting it off, since I figured my review would contain nothing more constructive than “RAH, I LOVE IT!” Which is basically what my review turned out to be, because, rah, I love this fragrance.

CLASSIFICATION: Playful yet sexy, feminine, fruity, floral

AGE GROUP: Perfect for anyone

Paris Hilton Heiress
Paris Hilton Heiress

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

Roxy for Women

NOTES: (as listed on sephora.com): Citrus, Red Fruits, Magnolia, Violet, Lily of the Valley, Frangipani, Ylang Ylang, Amber, Musk

Roxy for women

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.

CLASSIFICATION:  Hip, young, sporty

AGE GROUP:  Teen/college
