The Hotness: Smellin' good in the Neighborhood!


I am very picky when it comes to fragrances. They can oftentimes be too strong, or they just don't smell right. So when I find one I truly like, I am excited! I've only come across a selected few that really turn my nose on and I have them pictured here. Of course we all have different noses, and different taste when it comes to smells, but these are my favs. They are as follows (clockwise):

1. Bright Crsytal by Versace: A sweet but subtle smell. It was a gift and surprisingly I loved it!

2. Simply by Clinique: I smelled this is a magazine about 5 or 6 years ago and fell in love! It's definitely among my top 3 fav scents, if not my overall fav. It's light and smells so great, I can't even describe it! But I highly recommend it!

3. Unforgivable Woman by Sean John: I love this scent. It's very different from anything else I own, and they got me walking through the dept. store. It caught my nose and that was it. It has a masculine edge to it, but still a very feminine scent.

4. Marc Jacobs by Marc Jacobs: I love the smell of Jasmine and if you do too, you'll love this fragrance. It's like they squeezed the plant for it's juice and bottled it up. I will say use it sparingly because it can be overpowering.

5. Versus: A Time for Pleasure by Gianni Versace: This fragrance is one of three of a set, but this is by far my fav of them. A Time for Pleasure is appropriately named, as it is very sweet and inviting. I bought mine at an outlet years ago and I still have it!

6. Juicy Couture by Juicy Couture: I also first smelled this in a magazine and was immediately sold. I received the set for my birthday this year which included the lotion and I love it. I can use the lotion and not even have to worry about using the perfume, as it is more than enough on it's own.

7. DKNY: Be Delicious by Donna Karan: Last but not least is a fragrance I honestly have not gotten around to purchasing, but I did receive a sample size bottle and I will say that it is definitely going to be my next purchase. I use that little sample at least once a week. This also comes from a set, and there's a red apple and a green apple. I like the green, which is pictured above.

Most if no all of these are available at Sephora.com
