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!

‘Tis the season for a warm and sweet gourmand! I was thrilled when Lancome sent me their warm and sweet fragrance, Lancome La Vie est Belle edp. This cozy, floral gourmand fragrance is perfect for cooler temperatures, and the limited edition bottle is fabulous eye candy. Love!

For the holiday 2020 season, Lancome designed a sparkling bottle for their classic La Vie est Belle eau de parfum. The bottle has a sparkling little ribbon on its’ neck, and an ombre, silver glitter finish starting at the base, and thinning towards the middle. It’s festive, pretty, and wintery. This will be a beautiful bottle to keep on the counter, as well as give as a holiday gift to the fragrance fan on your list!

If you are a gourmand fan like me, you will love the heart notes of delicate Iris, tasty spun sugar, and warm vanilla. When you first spray Lancome La Vie est Belle edp on your wrist, the Iris scent will instantly capture you. Roughly five minutes into settling on your skin, a slightly spicy, and very warm scent takes over which balances out the Iris. You can detect the vanilla and sugar wrapped around the soft Iris scent. It’s pretty, warm, and ideal for cooler temperatures. This is definitely a warm and comforting scent for the late fall, winter, and early spring months. Loving it!

Lancome’s holiday 2020 beauty collection is selling fast. If you love gourmands, or have a gourmand fan on your holiday list, I highly recommend shopping early, and snapping up a bottle of this limited edition of Lancome’s La Vie est Belle edp now.

Sunscreen recommendations summer 2018

There are over 91,000 cases of melanoma diagnosed every year, according to the American Cancer Society. This is a large amount of cases. Although melanoma is treatable by a medical professional, do you really want to end up at that point? There is nothing scarier then finding melanoma on your skin, and wondering how the biopsy will come back! Yikes!

The best way to prevent melanoma, and hopefully never find yourself waiting for biopsy results, or worse; going through chemo to treat it, is to protect yourself now! There are so many ways to prevent melanoma, it makes prevention easy!

Let’s start at the top; our heads. I have owned a San Diego Hat Company hat for fifteen years now; and I love it! Their hats offer UPF protection (the fabric version of SPF) which is a great addition to wearing sunscreen on our skin. Love it! I highly recommend one of their hats! Here are my favorites for summer 2018:

In addition to hats, it is important to wear sunglasses in order to protect your eyes. Look for lenses which block UVA/UVB rays for ultimate protection. This doesn’t prevent melanoma, but it does protect your eyes; might as well protect everything you can!

The most important way to combat melanoma, and protect your precious skin, is to wear sunscreen. I love this facial sunscreen by Lancome, this lip protection by Fresh. In addition, a setting powder with SPF is a great addition to wearing facial sunscreen; I love this one by Supergoop. With three kids running around, I have found the easiest way to protect their bodies is with a spray-on sunscreen, such as this vitamin-infused one by Supergoop.

Even if you aren’t planning on being outside, it is a good practice to wear sunscreen everyday. The sun can touch your skin walking to and from the car, it goes through car windows; and even windows in your home. Always be protected and prepared!

To learn more about Melanoma, please visit the American Cancer Society’s website for further information.

Today is National Melanoma Awareness Day, so be sure to look for posts with the hashtag #MelanomaMonday on social media; and remember to protect yourself against the sun!
