Today I'm wearing Bond No. 9 - Coney Island. Really a great summer scent! My review to follow shortly.
What are you wearing today?
Yesterday I went to San Diego to the Nordstrom Fragrance Festival, and to visit my friend Tara and celebrate her Birthday. As usual the fragrance festival was not as much fun as the shoe and jewelry shopping and just hanging out with my friend. The last several times it has been rather disappointing, maybe because we have tried everything. No niche at this Nordstrom store and the mainstream stuff just isn't that exiting I guess. We tried the new Miss Boucheron, too fruity, and the new Issey Summer which was green, but so light and disappointing. Then there was ckIN2U her which was eh. Many items being touted as "new" which of course to us perfumistas were not new at all. I mean please ... Kors Island Hawaii? Betsy Johnson? Is that all ya got?
There were three new Givenchy Harvest scents which proved to be the most interesting offerings. They have taken Organza and added orange blossom, Very Irresistible and added rose, Amarige with ylang ylang. Quick reviews to follow shortly.
Tara and I agreed the Organza was the best one. Still not remarkable enough to buy, but if you love Organza, you'll be in for a treat. The bottles are very nice. Classic and uniform, and they were offering a great bag GWP, but we were strong.
Not so strong in the shoe department though. :O)
