Killer Queen Spring Reign

Killer Queen Spring Reign, Katy Perry

Press SampleGenerally I shy away from “celebrity” fragrance, but Katy Perry’s Killer Queen is an exception.  Katy’s original Killer Queen fragrance and its luscious fruitiness earned my adoration, and her latest scent is equally amazing!

Killer Queen Spring Reign, Katy Perry

I’m generally not a fan of florals, but there’s a certain fresh, succulent sweetness to the floral fragrances I’ve tested thus far in 2015 that make them winners!

Katy Perry Killer Queen’s Spring Reign features opening notes of pink freesia, violet petals, and cassis. Heart notes of natural davana, gardenia, and may flower rose add balance to the woodsy base notes of cashemeran and cedarwood oil.

Retail price is $39 for a 30ML spray, and $59 for a 100ML spray.

My son spied it on my vanity and said, “this bottle is my favorite.” As I’ve mentioned in my past review of Katy Perry Killer Queen, the bottle reminds me of the prop vial used to hold the youth elixir in the movie “Death Becomes Her”.  It simply looks magical!

Press SampleThe limited-edition Issey Miyake City Blossom is a breath of fresh spring air! The goal of the scent is to capture the fragrance of that first spring bloom. To me the scent smells simply clean, like a spring afternoon immediately following a sun-shower. If you’re looking for a scent that embodies the season of Spring, L’Eau d’Issey City Blossom Eau de Toilette is what you are looking for!

A 1.6 fl. oz. spray bottle retails for #76, a 3 fl. oz. spray bottle retails for $100.

Emozione Review, Salvatore Ferragamo

Press SampleHitting Counters in March 2015, Emozione by Salvatore Ferragamo is clean, sophisticated, and modern.  What type of woman would wear Emozione?  When I experienced Emozione for the first time, my mind conjured an image of a bronzed woman with tousled hair, wearing a white linen suit.  To me the scent is elegant and relaxed at the same time.  If that sounds like a good fit for your personality, Emozione might be your new signature scent!  Click through the jump for more specific details on this fragrance.
