Mmm, fragrance. My favourite thing. And there are plenty of new and exclusive fun things-we start out with the new “Couture Couture” by Juicy Couture roll-on. I have a feeling this is a product that will launch nationally later this year, as all the rollerballs do:) The fragrance is said to have notes of pink grape, star jasmine, sandalwood, and vanilla. I was underwhelmed by both Juicy Couture and Viva la Juicy, so I hope this is way better. This will retail for $16. Continuing on the note of Juicy, there are two new hatbox gift sets-one for the original and one for Viva La Juicy. They each have a 3.4 ounce bottle of the EDP and a tub of the body cream, along with a compact miror, for $98.

More hatboxes? You got them! CH by Carolina Herrera has a $90 hatbox with a 3.4 of the perfume and a 6.8 of the lotion. Daisy by Marc Jacobs has the new fall one, which is $85, and has the 3.4 perfume, a 5.1 lotion, and the solid perfume necklace. The perfume ring actually made an appearance on Daisy of Love, so who knows, it may end up on in the next box! Read the rest of this entry »

Daisy vs. …Daisy?

24 November, 2008

So in my quest to find the perfect MJ Daisy giftset for myself, I find, well, a plethora of gifts! And boy, it is good, because you can get a lot of different things.

The first set I saw was one I got interested in several months back…the Deluxe set. It not only comes with a 3.4 ounce size of the EDT, but one of the solid perfume rings, and then the standard size of the body lotion, all in a gold traincase. I am definitely a fan of gold things and florals, so the traincase is a must-have for me. The ring alone is normally $30, and the 3.4 size is $72. For $13 more you get a LOT more stuff, so it to me is a no-brainer. The thing that has put me off from buying it is the cost-while I do want to spend the money, I only buy two full-price perfumes a year. Read the rest of this entry »
