Victoria’s Secret Seduction Dark Orchid

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This week I tested one of Victoria’s Secret’s newest fragrance, Victoria’s Secret Seduction Dark Orchid ($49-$65), which launched in stores and online in October 2012. The wearer of the fragrance is described as a glamorous provocateur, with a fetish for high fashion. Whether you choose to wear it as an everyday spritz, or to induce the senses on a night filled with satin blindfolds and gilded handcuffs, it’s definitely worth a try.

Sultry notes of Midnight Orchid, Crushed Plum and Oud Wood combine to create an enticing fragrance that can easily be worn day or night. It has a very girly, sweet, fresh scent, that isn’t too strong. It’s the kind of subtle aroma that sneaks up on people as they talk to you and wonder where that amazing fragrance is radiating from, as opposed to the kind of perfume that invades the air and lets everyone know you’ve arrived. The scent lingers for most of the day, but a quick touch up is needed if you want it to last way past sundown.

In addition to an eau de parfum, the Secret Seduction Dark Orchid scent is available as a candle, fragrance wash and as a luxurious lotion.


Aquatic Essences

On a hot summer day, the mind can’t help but to drift off to fantasies of cool blue waters splashing against warm skin, and tranquil breezes lightly rustling through trees. Just because you can’t be engulfed by ocean waves, doesn’t mean you can’t splash yourself with fragrances to ignite your aqua dreams, and trick your nasal senses with the illusion that you are just a few steps away from the beach.

1. Thierry Mugler Angel Aqua Chic, $85.00
2. Escada Island Kiss, $55.00
3. Demeter’s Salt Air, starting at $6.00
5. Bath & Body Works® Sea Island Cotton®, $29.50
6. Davidoff Cool Water for Women Eau de Toilette , $52.00


You can’t take it with you…or can you?

You never know when you might need that extra little burst of scent, and usually the perfume you spray on in the AM will start to wear off by mid afternoon. But, carrying around liquid perfumes can be daunting and downright scary;  one wrong move, and the entire thing can combust. Then, you also have to worry about finding the right place to give yourself a little spritz, and you will be the most hated person in a room full of people if you pull out a full bottle and start spraying away.

Portable perfumes are convenient for the busy girl on the go, because it allows you to slyly give yourself a fragrance touch-up, and also makes perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays. Here are some light, travel friendly fragrances that not only smell great, but won’t weigh your purse down:
