Estee Lauder Beautiful Belle eau de parfum review

pictured: Estee Lauder Beautiful Belle EDP c/o Estee Lauder /

Looking for that perfect fragrance to wear on your next date? Perhaps you need the ideal scent for a wedding; maybe even your wedding?! Well, Estee Lauder has a fabulous new fragrance aptly named “Beautiful Belle.” This floral oriental fragrance was created with a carefree, rule breaking, modern woman in mind who is hopelessly romantic. That’s you right? Of course it is! It’s also the ideal fragrance for a bride, to wear out on a night on the town, or anytime you are in a romantic mood. Love it!

Top notes: Lychee, Rose Petals, Mimosa

Heart/Middle notes: Orange Flower, Gardenia, Tuberose

Base notes: Orris Root, Blush Suede Accord, Marzipan Musk, Ambrox

Isn’t that a fabulous combination of notes? I love fragrances with rose petals, orange flowers, and musk. Musk is one of my favorite base notes, it’s always so smooth and warm! It really creates a beautiful balance in this fragrance. Estee Lauder combines warm top and middle notes with traditionally oriental and woody base notes, which when combined, offer a floriental fragrance experience that lasts throughout the day. Love!

The fragrance experience offers medium complexity which allows you to smell the base notes as the floral fades throughout the day. This allows Estee Lauder Beautiful Belle edp to offer a warm fragrance experience which is ideal in moderate to cool weather. This scent is perfect for fall, winter, and spring temperatures! Since Estee Lauder Beautiful Belle edp offers a medium strength fragrance trail, it can be worn to the office with one spray, and 2-3 sprays on date night, for a wedding, casual days, weekends, and any special event. The edp is long lasting, and will remain active from morning until bedtime. Love that!

Estee Lauder Beautiful Belle edp also will make a fabulous gift for someone you love; especially that bride-to-be on your list! Of course, why not snap up a bottle for yourself? I’m finding myself wearing it on a daily basis. This is a beautiful fragrance!

Stella McCartney POP edp review

stella mccartney pop edp review

Fragrance: c/o Stella McCartney POP edp

Stella McCartney POP eau de parfum is a woody floral scent from famed designer Stella McCartney. POP by Stella McCartney is a warm, medium floral fragrance with a warm, woody base. It is a fabulous fragrance to wear now, and well into the fall season. Love!

Top notes: Tomato Leaves, Violet Leaves, Green Mandarin,

Middle notes: Violet, Tuberose, Plumeria,

Base notes: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Musks

Stella McCartney POP edp starts off with a fresh, almost-green scent which is quickly met with the warm, smooth floral scent of violet and tuberose. The plumeria sits softly behind the violet and the tuberose. The floral scent has a slight woody lace throughout the day. After a full day, the florals settle in and you are left with a warm, woody base which is smoothed out by the musk note.

This combination of florals and woods makes POP by Stella McCartney perfect for moderate to cool weather. The scent is warming, yet bold; offering a cozy way to wear florals when the temperatures begin to dip. Love that!

I also would like to give this bottle design a shout out. The bottle evokes a carefree, 60’s vibe which is right in line with our current vintage trend in apparel. I always feel like an outfit is never complete without the right fragrance. POP is easy to wear with fall’s trends, making it the perfect finishing touch to any ensemble this autumn season.

I rate Stella McCartney POP edp five out of five stars! Love it!
