The Beauty Of Perfume

Dear Readers,

Yesterday I had a wonderful shopping day! I brought some new perfume (guess which one…) and an evening gown! More on the evening gown next week (I am so excited)! In the meantime, I have included below some interesting facts about my new scent…

But I would love to know which scents are most bewitching to you? Do you love:

– Pretty, romantic Florals                – Intoxicating, sensual Orientals                – Mossy Green, Woody ‘Chypre’ notes
– Alluring, crisp Citrus                – Fresh, herbaceous ‘Fougère’ scents                – Sweet, food-inspired ‘Gourmand’

Lots of Love,
Cara

About Hypnotic Poison

Dior created ‘Poison’ in 1985 , a scent of irresistible seduction and magic – i.e. poison. Since then, every ‘Poison’ fragrance has extended upon this sensuality and irresistible enchantment.

Hypnotic Poison is the most exhilarating of all Dior oriental fragrances. Oriental fragrances are characterized by their warm base notes with spices and wood. Encompassing an intoxicating allure of scents, the main components of Hypnotic Poison are; Bitter Almond and Carvi, Sambac Jasmine, Jacarandra, Vanilla and Musk. It’s opulent and mysterious. And adding to Hypnotic Poison’s allure, Melanie Laurent, is now the new face of it (pictured above)!

Interesting Perfume Facts

Did you know…  it is the alcohol content of a fragrance that will determine how long a fragrance will linger on the skin? This also demands how a fragrance should be applied to the skin.

Eau De Toilette
Eau De Toilette is significantly lighter than Eau De Parfum. Traditionally, Eau De Toilette is spritzed in the morning and can be used quite generously.

Eau De Parfum
With a higher perfume content, Eau De Parfum is usually dabbed onto the skin. If the Eau De Parfum is a spray, spritz the fragrance into the air and walk into it.

Perfume / Perfume Extract
With the longest lasting hold, Perfume Extract is the most powerful and purest type of perfume. When applying Perfume Extract, the most delicate trace on the skin is enough. Apply to the wrists, décolleté and even behind the knees. Each of these areas of the body has pulse points which will allow the fragrance to travel.

  1. My two faves are DKNY Be Deliscious, light & citrusy, and Betsy Johnson’s fragrance, a musky scent. I get more men complenting me on the DKNY and more women the Betsy Johnson. Interesting I think.

  2. I am into inexpensive perfumes…I haven’t found a pricey one that has topped White Musk from the Body Shop yet…lol.
    I also love lovesbabysoft- smells so fresh and clean.
    Hope you have a great week.
