I promised to report in on the Seda France Belgian Marigold candle. Their description “The bright, sunny yellow hue of the Calendula flower was the inspiration for this crisp creation. Piquant citrus notes of bitter orange and tangerine are combined with rich West Indian bay leaf, followed by lavish layers of robust applewood and cinnamon bark, ripe peach, and the spicy bite of nutmeg, clove, curry spice and a subtle dash of vanilla musk.”
If you’re looking for a lot of pungent marigold smell, you’ll need to keep going. This just isn’t that. I get a hit of it from time to time, but it’s much more a spicy fruity orange candle. That makes it no less great, but definitely not marigold dominant. Disappointing to be sure. The throw isn’t the best throw of the Seda candles, but it is decent.
Also smelled that new Perry Ellis Women’s perfume. I’m not finding any notes listed for it, but it starts off all citrusy and crisp with a pretty floral heart peaking through. It’s a really nice, simple, cute bottle. The scents leans a little too far over into that “fresh feeling” scent early on, but once that vamooses, it’s very nice and subtle. $65 for 3.5 oz makes it one of the more reasonable entries in perfumeville, and I’m guessing there will be a much more decent price point for it once it hits discounters. It’s certainly easy to wear, not loud in the least and would be a great scent for the office or anywhere you want something pretty, quiet and feminine.
I have to also share one of my favorite beauty blogs, KarlaSugar. She does almost nothing but swatching. This girl has got to have amazing arms that takes the kind of swatching and scrubbing she puts hers through. I aways go check there for a new listick or eyeshadow collection because she will have the whole darn thing swatched on her arm.
So share one of your favorite blogs with us! It can be beauty or maybe some other special interest you have. I”m always looking for unusual and fun blogs to add to my rounds.
