Review of Mary Kay Upbeat For Her Eau de Toilette - flirty, festival-inspired scent created to capture THIS feeling

I'm a fragrance collectors, I lose count how many I own actually. Different fragrance gives me different feeling... some makes me feel girly, confident, calm and sexy! The latest one that added to my collection is Mary Upbeat for Her EDT! The fragrance name Upbeat actually caught my attention because it literally meant full of hope, happiness, and good feelings ...and that's actually the reason why I shower myself with fragrance every morning... to feel good , find hope & happiness the rest of my day!

Mary Upbeat for Her EDT is flirty, festival-inspired scent created to capture THIS feeling. Be you, be free! Upbeat, celebrates people’s love for music. There’s something almost electric that happens when a crowd gathers because of a shared obsession with music, united by their style and attitude about the world. It’s in this spirit that Upbeat, the new fragrance from Mary Kay was created.

The first sniff , I like the citrus scent as the top notes... so refreshing! However once the scent settle down it became a little bit of musky + floral scent. Although this fragrance is an EDP (Eau de Toilette interestingly the scent is quite strong at the first sniff however it went off after a while...  The bottle itself does gives a summer vibrant feel because it is in orange colour and that represent positive energy!

And according to the scent description ; here are the details for top, middle and bottom notes for this fragrance in case you are interested to know.

Top Notes
This unique fragrance opens with a captivating burst of red berries, sweet nectarine and sparkling apple. The delicious surge creates a boost of energy and a sense of excitement to last through the festival experience.

Middle Notes
Jasmine rose, muguet and wild honeysuckle add a sweet flirty nuance to this energetic fragrance. It exudes femininity, sensuality and the spirit of moving to the beat.

Bottom Notes
 Patchouli, skin musk, amber and agarwood unite to create the perfect mood for partying into the night.

Love how this Mary Kay Upbeat for Her EDT  has flirty, fruity, energetic scent with a sparkling open and a warm finish.

L’occitane 2015 Christmas Collection consists of Jasmin-Immortelle Neroli, Pamplemousse-Rhubarbe and Miel-Mandarine. 

Jasmin-Immortelle Neroli is my favourite collection of all because it has floral and really nice feminine scent that  Pierre Herme has created. He balances the white rose notes of gardens at dawn with the gold of a flower that still flourishes throughout the Corsican masquis.

L'occitane Pamplemousse-Rhubarbe collection offers quivering accord that tantalizes the nose and the taste bud. When Pierre Herme places Grapefruit at the heart of a creation, he means to celebrate all its facets. And that includes the slightly bitter, white inner skin – its character underlined by the green and crisp aromas of Rhubarb. This beautifully balanced note is soon ruffled at its heart by sensual, piquant spices. In this original composition, woody notes of Cedar conjure up the sensation of mischievous Grapefruit cutting through the tartness of Rhubarb stalks.

Out of the 3 collections, I prefer the L'occitane Pamplemousse-Rhubarbe because it has the refreshing citrus scent which keep me fresh and awake throughout. Don't forget to check out  L'occitane x Pierre Herme Christmas set promo here.

So I would like to share some Tips to have Longer Lasting Fragrance here. In fact the secret is in your daily body care routine. Build up different layers of fragrance from your shower gel, body lotion, deodorant and finished off with a spritz of fragrance behind your ears and on the nape of your neck to have a lasting effect. Lastly don't forget to touch up at mid-day with roll on or body spray.

Review : Avon Instinct EDP launch in Malaysia!

Early last month, Avon introduced its new range of fragrance, Instinct Eau De Parfum at Borneo Rainforest Café, Bandar Sunway.
We were told that the dress code is foxy jungle so I went with leopard prints from my dress, handbags and heels! Add to add in the foxy look, I went with my red lipstick! 

Avon's head of Commercial Marketing, Mandy Cupper gave a warm welcome speech before revealing the new face for Avon Instinct.

Representing Avon Instinct is the iconic beauty with a smoldering presence on and off screen, Megan Fox whom is a perfect fit for the intensely exotic new scents – lush, fruity floral. Avon Instinct is an ode to the kind of sensuality that Fox embodies.

Mandy said in her opening speech that “When we developed Avon Instinct, we were looking for someone who could portray the essence of a wildly alluring fragrance. No one evokes magnetic attraction better than Megan—men and women alike see her as a bold, captivating beauty. She’s the perfect face for a scent that’s intensely alluring and a little bit dangerous” 

“The creation of INSTINCT has introduced another Hollywood beauty into our exclusive family of A-Listers, joining the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Wilde, Salma Hayek and Jennifer Hudson. Today, Avon is one of the world’s leading fragrance marketers. Avon scents are so enduring, so timeless, that fragrances first introduced three decades ago continue to captivate today,” added Mandy.

 Opening gambits - fire dancers

 This model looks so gorgeous, love her sultry eyes makeup!

The event was graced by the ever gorgeous, Scha Al-Yahya, Avon’s Fragrance Ambassador in Malaysia
Spot her baby bump! She looks glowing event though she is heavily pregnant now! Love her leopard print dress! 

Avon Instinct EDP consist of fascinating blend and layers of exotic aromatic:

Top Note 
Sparkling Greens: A modern lush freshness which transports you to a secret garden where your senses are gently touched by dew drops and sunshine.

Middle Note 
Camellia ScentTrekTM: One of Givaudan’s exclusive ScentTrekTM ingredients, an intoxicating aroma surrounds you as layered petals unfold to reveal a seductive and alluring scent, evoking carnal feelings of temptation and desire.

Base Note
Sensual Sandalwood: Exudes a creamy, exotic woody sensation, giving Instinct a distinct signature. Sensuous and skin-soft, sandalwood has a comforting effect, leaving you wrapped in rich sensuality.

Review on Avon Instinct EDP 
I love the design of the bottle which comes in gold colour and I love how it embossed leopard print onto the bottle to give it an exotic feel. When I first tried Avon Instinct EDP, I could smell the fruity lime/orange  scent which is pretty strong on the first few seconds. But after a while when the top note scent started to settle i n I could detect a light floral scent (which should be the camellia flower scent). After few minutes, when the scent is totally set in...I could clearly smell the woody and sandalwood scent. The fragrance lasts on few for a good few hours and I quite like it the scent when it is settled in. I would say this is a sensual scent for a confident and sultry woman!

Avon Instinct Eau de Parfum is already available starting 16 April 2014 in all Avon Beauty Boutique nationwide and with Avon's dealers for RM99 for 50ml (in Peninsular Malaysia) and RM113.85 (in Sabah & Sarawak)

Light Up the Season with L'occitane Christmas Holiday Un Noel a Grasse Collection!

In conjunction with the Christmas Holiday season, L'occitane introduced additional two new limited additions of scents & body products to the existing La Collection de Grasse which was introduced last May. 

 The NEW Fleur d'Or & Acacia (for her) and Cedre & Oranger (for him) fragrance

L'occitane Fleur d'Or & Acacia (For Her) comes in orange/gold packaging and consists of 8 products.

Key raw materials: Mimosa Absolute from Grasse, Acacia from the Mediterranean Basin.
Family: Musky Floral
Head notes: Lemon, Bergamot
Heart notes: Mimosa, Acacia
Base notes: White Wood, Musk

By looking at the ingredients, it would be a sweet scent for sure. My first thought of L'occitane Fleur d'Or & Acacia EDT (75ml for RM225) when I tried it on my hand is that it has a very strong warm honey scent which is too much for my liking. To my surprise it smell quite different when my friend tried on her hand. So I guess the chemical reaction is different from persons and you got to try it to see if the scent suits you personally. 

 Besides fragrance, L'ocittane also produced a whole series of body products for this range such as

Luminous Oil (100ml, RM110)
Glitter and light, shimmering particles, shea butter and sweet almond oil…Nourishing yet lightweight, mist this sheer, fluid dry oil over hair and body for a scented veil of moisture.

Shower Gel (175ml, RM62)
Lit up by golden pearly particles, this velvety-soft gel melts into a dense, rich foam on contact with water. Skin is deliciously scented with a powdery floral scent.

Perfumed Soap (50g, RM21)
Bathtime is now a luxurious experience with this soap bar, which gently cleanses with a creamy lather.

Body Milk (175ml, RM92)
The feather-light texture skins in to leave skin smooth and soft with Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil. Skin stays comfortably hydrated and wonderfully scented.

Lip Gloss (15ml, RM56)
It has smooth, creamy texture that nourishes, protects and leaves a beautiful sheen on the lips. 

Hand Cream (30ml, RM38)
Rapidly absorbed, the scented hand cream nourishes and moisturises hands anywhere, anytime of the day.

Scented Candle (270g, RM135)
Light up your living space with this luminous scent with bursts of refreshing orange that will definitely relax frazzled minds.

While L'occitane Cedre & Oranger (For Him) comes in forest green packaging offers a total of 5 products.

L'occitane Cedar & Oranger EDP (75ml, RM225) offers a fresh woody scent of cedar wood that bring back memories of good times as a child are paired with the scent of orange trees, laden with ripe, juicy fruits. Solemn and majestic yet cheeky, this fragrance is sweetened by hints of musk, to create a bold, intense impression.

Key raw materials: Virginian Cedarwood Essential Oil, Italian Orange Essence.
Family: Citrus Woody
Head notes: Orange, Bergamot, Pine Needles
Heart notes: Cedar
Base notes: Vetiver, Musk

For this men range, there is only 3 products to complement the EDP i.e

After Shave Balm 75ml, RM120: Housed in an understated aluminium tube, this post-shave balm soothes, moisturises and leaves skin lightly scented.

Shower Gel 175ml, RM62: Perfect for the gym or weekends away, this gentle 2-in-1 formula is ideal for skin and hair.

Perfumed Soap 50g, RM21: This non-dying soap bar cleanses without stripping away skin’s natural moisture. Perfect for hands and body.

Between this 2 scent, I would prefer L'occitane Cedre & Oranger although this is the men range. Although usually I don't like very woody or musky scent, but this L'occitane Cedar & Oranger EDP scent caught my attention. The citrus scent seems to balance the musky scent very well. This is worth checking out! 

Just like the past years,L'occitane also would be offering limited edition gift sets which is perfect as Christmas gift. Below are the set for this Christmas collection:
Fleur d’Or Leur Collection For Her RM341 (worth RM379) comes with Holiday Box
Fleur d’Or EDT 75ml
Fleur d’Or Shower Gel 175ml
Fleur d’Or Body Milk 175ml

Shine with Fleur d’Or For Her RM201 (worth RM379) comes with Holiday Pouch 
Fleur d’Or Lip Gloss 15ml
Fleur d’Or Hand Cream 30ml
Fleur d’Or Sublime 75ml

Cedre Dargent Collection (worth RM407) comes with Holiday Box
Cedre EDT 75ml 
Cedre Shower Gel 157ml
Cedre Aftershave 75ml

Apart from the products, I would love to share some of the pictures from the event where I had my first Christmas lunch way back in October which I would love to share with you guys :) 

Love the beautiful table set up :)

Last but not least, want to thanks L'occitane because I had fun :) 

And with Christmas just few weeks away, let's shop for gifts!

Review : MARC JACOBS HONEY EDP comes in a cute packaging that many girls can't resist!

I always have a thing for perfume that has cute packaging and Marc Jacobs perfumes definitely have the cutest one around and they always somehow stand out amongst the rest.

Honey by Marc Jacobs is no different from its predecessors because this is also an eye candy for the eyes. The bright packaging in yellow which looked like a BEE just make me happy by looking at it! You can imagine how attractive is this fragrance bottle because mine was stolen during the 3 months renovation works at my house and I was feeling sad because I didn't realised it until the renovation works were over recently. This explains why my review is so much later even though the fragrance was launched in August as I just got myself a new bottle of this fragrance recently.

Marc Jacobs Honey has a vibrant, bold and spontaneous concept and with the height of irresistible charm, HONEY by Marc Jacobs promises to set our heart a flutter...

Bold stripes, feminine dots and a punch of color meet in a graphically clever mix that reflects Marc’s inventive play on classic lines and patterns. Playful and polished, the bottle is an elegantly crafted glass bottle that reveals the cheerful golden hue of the fragrance.

On the top, landed a butterfly in vibrant yellow and black stripes.

Shimmering pearl at the center of each butterfly add polished radiance, while the signature logo and gold coil- wrapped collar imparting a glided touch.

Honey by Marc Jacobs Eau de Parfum is a sweet fruity floral scent and although it is named Honey, it is surprisingly not as sweet as I thought it be. The first sniff I can smell the refreshing citrus zing from the pear and juicy mandarin and the fragrance scent settle, I can smell the sweetness from the honey and vanilla. And I love how the sweetness of the fragrance is not overwhelming.

Top Note : Pear, Fruity Punch, Juicy Mandarin

Middle Note : Orange Blossom, Peach Nectar, Honeysuckle

Base Note : Honey, Golden Vanilla, Smooth Woods.

This fragrance is developed by Firmenich, the fragrance energizes with the freshness of green pear brightened with a splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. At the heart of the fragrance is orange blosson, a note of sparkling femininity that mingles with nectars of honeysuckle and peach, honey, vanilla and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.

If you like a floral scent with a hint of sweetness from honey, you definitely need to try out this. With such a cute packaging, I'm sure many girls want this to be on their vanity table! With Christmas just around the corner, this would be a great Christmas gift!

Besides fragrance, it also offers Radiant Body Lotion ( 50ml for RM167) and Fresh Shower Gel (150ml for RM160) to compliment the fragrance. 

Honey by Marc Jacobs EDP is now available in counters
30ml for RM228
50ml for RM290
100ml for RM360
