these are my favorite fragrances at the very moment and I rather leave the house without makeup than without fragrance : ) yes, I am an absolute scent person and I love to have a variety of different perfumes that fit my moods. as you can see the scents are very different, some are rather sweet and some are very fresh or herbal. my favorites are also perfumes that I can wear all year around despite the different scents. in my case I have special fragrances that I only wear in winter (GUCCI GUILTY) and some that I only wear in summer (JIL SANDER SUN, BRONZE GODDESS etc). not all of my favorite scents are for women only, the LOEWE 7 is for men : ) and the JO MALONE is unisex.

thank you ROBERTO CAVALLI I finally found a fragrance of yours that I really like. I dont know if that is just me but all the CAVALLI fragrances before were too sweet and fruity for me. BUT this one has the right amount of freshness that I seek in a perfume. I am not really great with describing scents so I think the best thing to do is go to the next shop like MANOR or GLOBUS and check it out for yourself. I am now enjoying the beautiful sun and I am almost feeling like I am inside the PARADISO.
HAPPY THURSDAY <3
I am so happy to already have this before its in the shop so I can tell you how great it is and that I am more than sure that this will be a big must have fragrance in the future. everytime I am wearing this – and this is almost every second day – I get a compliment on my fragrance followed by the question what it is that I am wearing. I had to give some to my mom as she already loves it too and I got one of these tiny containers where you can fill in the fragrance – these little spray containers come in very handy when you travel with hand luggage. what I find really funny is that the fragrance transforms in two different ways after wearing it on the skin for a moment – either the fresh, green note lingers around or the warm and almost powdery touch stays more present. in my case it was the fresh green part that lasted and with my mom it was the opposite. another thing that I wanna say is even though this parfum is actually created for women it could also be a more unisex fragrance BUT one has to like a quiet dominant floral scent.
head note: soy bean, lilly of the valley
heart note: orris root, cedarwood
base note: musk, cashmerewood
the fragrance will be exclusively sold at Marionnaud starting March 14, 2015
the campaign was photographed by Steven Klein and shows a classic portrait of the model Anna Ewers. she was styled by Vanessa Traina and had her makeup done by Diane Kendal and her hair were styled by Didier Malige it took place in New York and I almost could not believe – it was taken on December 11, 2013 – yes, thats quiet some time ago.

Clara and John Molloy founded MEMO in 2007 after they met eachother on a chairlift in 2005. they have traveled together and experienced many nice things and that was the start of their collection – they discovered eleven scents and created these gorgeous fragrances for their collection. they both see a fragrance or scent as a magical journey and the flacon as the aim of that very trip.
LALIBELA – a mystical rose
the scent of yoyous fervor.
MANOA – city of gold and opoponax
manoa is the house of the sun, a living fruit that offers its opoponax nectar only to the most adventurous.
SHAMS OUD – an oud in the house of sun
The only guide in the house of the sun is the haunting music of oud, its main chords of Tonka bean, its dreams of wood and its promises of glorious love.
LUXOR OUD – oud from the pharaons
the marriage of wood and rose under pharaoh’s whip and sceptre.
QUARTIER LATIN – parisian papers
heart of paris that flutters in a latin fire.
IRISH LEATHER – wind of leather the leather gathers in the wind, the grass warms with the wood – Irish leather gallops off into the horizon.
ITALIAN LEATHER – dolce leather
it teams the simplicity of green tomato leaf with the sophisticated beauty of leather, myrrh and vanilla absolute – a lucid dream.
FRENCH LEATHER – a rose affair
being right, knowing the right moment to undress – musk – kissing.
I got the MEMO discovery voyage – FOUR – that contains 8 x 2ml samples and my favorite one is: FRENCH LEATHER! every sample comes with the list of ingredients and the description of the fragrant journey. read more about MEMO << here
thank you very much for inviting me to the event at parfumerie hyazinth and also for the lovely talk I had with Clara and John. <3
all of the eleven fragrances can be bought >> here
nothing brand new but rather new. the thomas sabo fragrances CHARM ROSE and CHARM ROSE INTENSE are available since mid of October for 39.90 CHF.
here is what I read about it: “the very first THOMAS SABO CHARM CLUB fragrance is the culmination of all CHARM CLUB collections – CHARM ROSE Eau de Parfum. a fragrance all about Luck, Fashion, Love & Passion. in addition to the pleasurably fresh top note and the sensual base note, the heart of this scent is a dazzling bouquet of rare roses. The 1950s style bottle with its silver cap and small pendant is a real gem, as well as the exquisite CHARM CLUB style packaging with satin lining. The charming extra: you can use the ribbon with the sweet rose pendant perfectly as a hair band.”
I can totally agree with them about the rather fresh top note and the very sensual base note with lots of roses in between. I am totally in love with tha packaging and can only welcome tiny parfum bottles for my bag on the go! a fragrance for the special everyday!
the newest fragrance by JIL SANDER is called SIMPLY and I think this name suits the scent perfectly! It is a very feminine ladylike scent and made for the fall winter season.
Christoph Raynaud created this beautiful fragrance – he says: “SIMPLY Jil Sander is worn like a beautiful garment, a second skin sillage that complements her “to-go” trouser suits and distinguishes her incredibly stylish look.“ and I couldnt agree more! It indeed is a scent that makes you ready to go. it is one of these scents that you can not wear with a too simple outfit as the fragrance askes for more – at least thats how I experience SIMPLY.the design of the bottle is very clear and pure with black and gold – a very minimalist look just like JIL SANDER!
something new! Calvin Klein will launch its newest fragrance called REVEAL in September 2014, September, 15, 2014, to be precise. Solar Oriental is a new category and it combines the menly freshness with the warm curves of a lady. I absolutely love it. It is the perfect combination of sweet, fresh and floral.
top notes: salt, pink pepper, black pepper, white pepper
heart notes: orris (iris), gray amber, solar-chord
base notes: sandalwood, Cashmeran, vetiver
I have been wearing this fragrance for the last couple of days and I am surprised that I can still smell the fragrance during the day. where as usually I can not smell my fragrance after a couple of hours because my nose already got used to it. If you have the chance go and check it out in September, I am sure you will love it as it combines so many different scents! let me know what you think once you have tried it, I am always curious what other people think 🙂

by Paco Rabanne – 80ml Eau de Toilette Natural Spray
mmhhmm! I like it! thanks for sending me this new fragrance by Paco Rabanne with the beautiful cocktail glasses – it makes me feel like a princess! I feel it is very hard to describe a scent but anyway I will give it a try. It has a fresh almost fruity touch but not too much and has a beautiful floral scent. Its a fragrance for the moments in which you need an egoboost! put on your favorite outfit and wear the LADY MILLION EAU MY GOLD and feel like a diamond!
there is a special LADY MILLION cocktail that I ofcourse had to try, not for me but for friends. let me share the recipe with you:

1 teaspoon of home-made barley water
4 cl cognac
CHEERS ladies and gentlemen! xx
ONLINE SHOPPING at
Currently I am checking out different Swiss online shops and stumbled upon MR LENS. Have you heard about this shop before? I think the name is a bit misleading because they do not only sell glasses and lens – they also have a big variety of parfum, hair and body products. I scrolled thru their whole shop and looked for products that are available within 24 hours and planned to spend 100 CHF. To be very honest with you it is not the most stylish online shop I have visited but its kept simple and I think its more about good deals than looking super nice 🙂
Ever since I discovered JO MALONE in London I am a huge fan of their fragrances and when I saw that MR LENS sells the JO MALONE cologne for 71.30 CHF I wanted to give the LIME BASIL MANDARIN cologne a try. So what else did I find – I saw NIVEA showergels and handwash for 3.80 CHF and figured why not trying the NIVEA showergel and handwash range 🙂
Shopping at MR LENS is very easy and I didnt have any problems with my purchase. I spend 99.60 CHF for the JO MALONE cologne, 6 showergels and 1 handwash by NIVEA. I ordered around 3 o clock in the afternoon and the next morning at 9 o clock I got the parcel delivered to my house. so within less than 24 hours I had all my things – THATS FANTASTIC!
ladies, spring is about to be here and Estée Lauder presents some really awesome new products. I was invited to the press lunch in Basel and had the opportunity to get all the products explained and introduced. we all got a booklet with the latest products and a lot of interesting tips!
#1 Sumptuous Infinite daring length and volume Mascara
Some of you may know that I am not a Mascara Fan at all 🙂 I hardly ever use Mascara.. But still I am always craving new things and I am one of these person who loves to try out new things. So of course I gave this Mascara a try and I have to say it does what it promises. It made my lashes look longer and made them dense and I really liked the shape of the brush.
#2 Revitalizing Supreme CC Creme
A new anti-aging CC Creme – which adapts to your skin color and gets slightly tinted. the Cream should be applied as the last step after the moisturizer and inbetween foundation. I wear the CC Creme on Sundays and I just wear it on top of my moisturizer and it makes my skin look very even and it reduces the redness on my cheeks.
#3 ReNutriv Ultimate Contouring Eye lift
I cant wait for summer.. this will be my best friend in summer! The new ReNutriv Eye Lift Creme has an amazing applicator out of ceramic which always stays cool. No matter if you have it in your purse or in your room it stays the same temperature. its like magic! I use it without creme and start from the inner part sliding outwards underneath my eyes, I repeat this 3 times per eye after that I apply the creme with the same move. I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really see a difference in my skin around my eyes – YAY!
#4 Pure Color Envy Lipstick
Bright lips, I am so ready for the spring summer colors of 2014.
20 different intense moisturizing color shades for bright lustrous lips!
#5 Modern Muse
Modern Muse – I love the name of the newest Estée Lauder fragrance.
The fragrance has a very elegant and soft note and became one of my favorite fragrances. I wouldnt say its a fresh scent but still it makes me feel very fresh and clean. I took it to London for the fashionweek and whenever I travel short distances with small luggage I limit myself to bring only one parfum and allow myself to buy one in the dutyfree 🙂 so this time I didnt find a suiting parfum on my way to london so this meant I had to use the same parfum everyday for one week 🙂 and I loved it!! on the way back I found something nice, something we dont have in switzerland, but I will tell you in another post. stay tuned. I can highly recommend to visit your local parfum shop and try the Modern Muse fragrance – I am sure you will love it too.
#6 Pure Color Nailpolish
Not only bright lips but also bright nails – the new Pure Color Nailpolishes are really nice. I wore it for several days and it didnt chip. But I also used the top coat from Estée Lauder so I cant tell you if it would chip or not if wearing it without top coat. I will try it and will let you know.
soo, thats it for now. I had fun with all those new products and I hope you will enjoy them soon too! spring starts this month, yay! I will show you the Mascare, lipstick, CC Creme and Nailpolish in an upcoming post! stay tuned! xx
DKNY be delicious skin
Hydrating Eau de Toilette
something new ladies !!
I am sure you know the original fragrance DKNY be delicious that was launched in 2004. Now they extended their line with this new skin hydrating eau de toilette that you can see in the photo above.
The collection consists of three already known fragrances now in a new skin formula:
DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette
DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette
DKNY Golden Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette
aww.. the scent of DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette is very fresh and has a touch of green apple with a citric note – perfect for spring. The magic is called “Apple Fusion Complex”, a blend of ingredients that is clinically proven to help moisturizing, smooth and brighten the skin. I really like the re-design of the bottles and the new atomizer spray for all-over body misting. It really makes it easy to spray the product all over the body.
visit your nearest shop and try it out – it might be something nice for you.
have a wonderful day. xx
#1 Eclat & Soin Couleur
Shampoo with 5 Essential Oils
#2 Concentre de Lait AMANDE
Firming and Smoothing Milk Concentrate
#3 Creme Mains Rose Heart
20% Shea Butter protects, moisturizes and absorbs quickly.
#4 Verveine Eau de Toilette
with organic Verbena extract
These are the BESTSELLER products by L’OCCITANE. As I told you in my previous post this month is all about BEAUTY BESTSELLERS. Let me tell you a little bit about these amamzing products.
I have colored hair and I used #1 Eclat & Soin Couleur Shampoo for a couple of hairwashes and I really must say its an amazing product. Mostly herbal products do not latter but the Eclat & Soin Couleur smells really good and latters. As some of you may already know I have very dry skin and therefore I m always looking for rich body creams or butters. #2 Concentre de lait AMANDE is a perfect cream for dry skin. It smells delicious and it moisturizes and absorbs very fast. I use it allover my body and I can get dressed immediately without feeling greasy or so. Some weeks ago I posted something about handcreams, the post was caled “things I hardly use but I should” there I already featured the #3 Creme Mains Rose Heart with 20% Shea Butter. It is a great product that protects, moisturizes and absorbs quickly. see the post about handcremes << http://isawsomethingnice.ch/post/73605959920/thingsthatihardlyeverusebutishouldhandcreams >> last but not least let me tell you about the #4 Verveine Eau de Toilette
with organic Verbena extract its a very fresh fragrance and for me it is a bit too much citrc so I prefere to use it in my house instead of my body – I know this must sound weird but I really think it makes an amazing roomspray aswell. 🙂
