Do you love warm, woody florals? I do! I was so excited when I learned Lancome had released a new woody floral. This beautiful fragrance, Lancome Idole L’Intense edp, is a warm, woody floral with a smooth base. It has a classic vibe, and seasonless scent. Love that!

I am excited about Lancome Idole L’Intense edp since it is a woody floral we can all wear now, during the cold winter months. It’s a warm fragrance, which is ideal on a cool day. Due to the jasmine and rose top notes, this woody floral is a versatile fragrance which will enable it to also be worn during moderate and warm temperatures. I would wear it up to about 85 degrees. After 85 degrees, I prefer to move into nautical, and fruity scents which only work on hot days. Love!

Top notes: Sensual Isparta Rose, Fresh Jasmine

Middle notes: Warm Musks

Base notes: Cedar, Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla

After about one minute, Lancome Idole L’Intense edp settles into a warm, musky floral with a slight vanilla and wood scent. As the day progresses, it cycles through a warm, musky fragrance experience which is smooth and rich. I love the lingering cedar and vanilla laced into the musk at the end of the day. The edp formula is long lasting, so it will not need to be reapplied during the day. You can spray it on at 7am and still enjoy it at 10pm.

If you love a good woody floral, this is your new scent! It will also make a fabulous gift. Lancome offers several gift box choices which are perfect for any holiday during the year. I highly recommend trying this scent. I rate it five out of five stars! Love!

Thanks for stopping by!

Floral maxi dress for spring

Spring is here! Yay! The spring season is my favorite time of year to wear maxi skirts, maxi dresses, and anything flowing! So when I spotted this flowing, red floral maxi dress for spring, I knew it had to be in my wardrobe!

I love this little dress. Not only was it under $100, it can be worn casually, or dressed up for a luncheon, a daytime wedding (as a guest of course), or worn to a graduation. It is the perfect floral maxi dress for spring!

If you are looking for a versatile floral  maxi dress for spring, this is a great option! If you decide to purchase this maxi dress, keep in mind the flutter sleeves are wide so you need a thin tank top or camisole underneath to keep things modest. The dress also runs on the smaller size, so if you are between sizes, go up. I usually wear a 6 or 8 depending upon the cut of a dress, so I went with the medium in this dress, and it fit perfectly.

Since platform shoes are making a resurgence, and maxi dresses tend to be on the long side for my 5’4″ frame, I knew I needed a pair of 1970s inspired platforms for the spring and summer seasons. When I saw these cool beige platforms by Seychelles I was thrilled! They work perfectly with my red floral maxi dress, and they look amazing with this season’s cropped jeans, cropped pants, wide leg pants, flares, and maxi skirts. Plus, they were under $120. How fabulous is that!

If you are looking for a comfortable pair of platforms which are easy to walk in, then this is the pair for you. There is a full size run in stock as of today online here; and they also come in a fun floral print. Since the price is right, I am thinking of adding the floral pair to my wardrobe. Love!

What types of dresses do you gravitate towards for spring?

Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolue review

Atelier Cologne is one of my favorite fragrance companies; and when it comes to florals, rose is hands-down my favorite floral fragrance note. So, when I spotted Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme, I knew it had to be my new rose-based scent!

Like all Atelier Cologne fragrances, Rose Anonyme is so fresh, it seems as if the fragrance was created and mixed together the same day you spray it on your wrist. No other fragrance company smells this fresh! The perfume concentrate is 18%, which is the reason Rose Anonyme by Atelier Cologne is so luxurious. This concentrate is extremely high for the industry, and allows the fragrance to be long lasting, fresh, and offer a true, complex fragrance experience.

Top notes: Bergamot from Calabria, Ginger from China, Turkish Rose Essence

Middle Notes: Turkish Rose Absolue, Incense from Somalia, Velvet Oud Accord

Base notes: Patchouli rom Indonesia, Papyrus from India, Benzoin from Laos

Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme starts off with a ginger laced scent. After about thirty minutes, the ginger softens and the rose cycles through a soft yet exotic fragrance experience. The patchouli in the base adds a soft yet spicy undertone, which is nothing short of exquisite.

I am in love with Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolue, and cannot wait to wear it often. The overall fragrance experience is ideal in warm, hot, and moderate weather. Since the scent is medium, it can be worn in tight quarters such as the office or theater. The complex nature of the scent allows it to be worn for formal events, yet the rose heart, gives the scent daytime appeal. This makes Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolue the perfect day-into-evening scent; especially on a summer day!
