Throughout the decades there have been fragrance trends, hot selling perfume products, and heavily advertised fragrances. Despite this money-making industry and push to make a perfume popular, there are certain fragrance brands, designers, and scents which have withstood the test of time, changing tastes, trends, and lack of heavy advertising. These are the classics and the best-selling fragrances of our time.

Chances are, you have heard of most, if not all, of these perfumes. There are different levels of popular and classic fragrances. We have pure perfume, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, cologne, and eau de cologne. When you sort through these timeless scents, you will also see price points barely over one hundred dollars and others in the hundreds; as if they are trying to be a thousand dollars! This means, there is a classic fragrance in every price point, and for everyone. You won’t have to break the bank to purchase an investment fragrance. Love that!

What I love about these classic perfumes is that they transcend generation. Fragrances which were popular in the 1980s are still popular now, which means the silent gen, boomers, GenX, Millennials, and GenZ are all fans of these timeless perfumes. Isn’t that fabulous? We might not agree on many topics, but we can all agree a beautiful fragrance transcends time and generation.

I showcased my favorite best-selling fragrances in the collage above, but there are many more! Scroll through the shopping widget below to see all the fragrances which are classic, best-selling, and have been around for ages.

What is your favorite classic perfume? I love don’t be shy by Kilian, Chanel no. 5 and everything from Lancome.

Spring 2019 fragrances

spring 2019 fragrances

Spring 2019 is here! This means it is time to move away from our warm, heavy winter fragrances, and into something more fresh and spring-like. . .or is it?

For the spring 2019 season, we are seeing a resurgence of the heavier fragrances from the late 1980s and early 1990s. This was the era where you left a trail of scent in your wake. As fashion tends towards this era, so does fragrance! Get ready to pair your bold hues, biker shorts, and puffy sleeves with vetiver; and be sure to leave a trail.

My signature fragrance in the early to mid-1990s was Gio de Giorgio Armani. It was a heavy vetiver scent which always left a trail. When fragrance softened up in the late 1990s, vetiver was left for men’s cologne only; even then, it was watered down. This season, perfumer’s are featuring the heavy fragrance note, and designing entire perfumes around vetiver! I think I am in love!!!

So, for the spring 2019 season, look for medium to heavy fragrances. Look for something warm, leathery, and woody. Mix those florals with something slightly masculine, and always leave a trail!

I went smelling, and found a few fabulous scents which embody different facets of the fragrance trends this spring season. There is something for everyone in my collage above! Find your ideal floral, citrus, or vetiver! I hope you love these as much as I do!

What is your favorite spring scent? Are you ready to leave a trail? Or will you continue to wear skin scents?

Guerlain Meteorites Pearls review

products c/o of Guerlain: Meteorites Baby Glow Touch / Meteorites Birthday Candle Pearls / makeup brush (so soft!! Love!!)

Guerlain is celebrating 30 years of their fabulous illuminating, and color-correcting Meteorites Pearls. To celebrate, they have introduced a special birthday edition of the famous Guerlain Meteorites Pearls for 2017. This special edition offers the same, well-loved Meteorites Pearls in a beautiful birthday package which looks so pretty on a vanity. This special edition is named the “Guerlain Meteorites Birthday Candle Pearls.” Love!

How pretty are these pearls!! I tend to prefer wearing powder alone, without foundation. I am prone to acne, so I only wear foundation for special occasions. My daily beauty routine consists of concealer over blemishes, blush, and powder. Although I have always admired Guerlain’s Meteorites Pearls from afar, I hadn’t tried them before. I was so thrilled to have the chance to try them out. I am hooked!

I used this beautiful pink makeup brush to apply the pearls. The brush is luxurious and soft; I need to get the blush version! This brush glides over the beautiful pearls, and helps apply the powder evenly across my face. I love the uplifting, illuminating look the powder offers me. This is my new go-to powder for my daily beauty routine! I love this pretty, pink, special edition casing. My daughters are already eyeing it in hopes of snagging it from me, but I have a good hiding place where they can’t find it. haha

How cute is this on-to-go Meteorites Baby Glow stick? This is a great highlighter in a compact package which fits nicely into my purse for touch-ups during the day; or for travel. I don’t want to throw my pearls into my suitcase, so this stick is perfect to use in lieu of the pearls while traveling. Love!

This whole collection is my new addiction. I highly recommend adding it to your routine! You can find the limited edition Guerlain Meteorites Pearls online here.
