Last year, I wanted to buy my sister, Lauren (an Amazing Grace newbie), a gift set. I searched all over the Internet and in stores to find the most comprehensive collection at a low price point…and nothing even came close to this one. Lauren loved it, and I was so happy to share one of my favorite scents with my lil sis.

The Gift of Grace or Love 4-Piece Fragrance Collection (available in Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, and Falling in Love) features Philosophy’s highest-concentrated eau de parfum fragrance plus hand cream, body lotion, and 3-in-1 shower gel or shower cream – all in full sizes!

Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise Cologne

jo+malone+vanilla+and+anise Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise CologneIf you surveyed the perfumes on my vanity, you’d surely notice that the common thread amongst my favorites (the half empty bottles) is vanilla.

Most days, I smell like some variation of vanilla. But as I get older, I’m constantly searching for a more sophisticated take on the scent. I love vanilla, but I don’t want to smell like cake frosting 24/7.

So I was thrilled to recently make the acquaintance of Vanilla & Anise, the latest fragrance from Jo Malone – a spicy, modern interpretation of my favorite flava.

The Composition

Top notes: Sicilian Bergamot, Tunisian Neroli, Wild Fennel Flower, Star Anise
Middle notes: Oleander. Tuberose, Frangipani, Purple Vanilla Orchid
Base notes: Madagascar Clove, White Amber, Vetiver Bourbon, Vanilla Bourbon Absolute, Tonka

In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon Giveaway

Reese 1 In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon GiveawayGuess what? I’ve got another giveaway for you. Can you believe it?

Avon introduces In Bloom, the first fragrance developed in partnership with Reese Witherspoon. Alluring and mysterious, In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon is for the multi-faceted woman who’s down to earth yet glamorous, elegant, authentic and confident.

The fragrance is an invitation to experience the sensual side of a woman. Precious and exquisite, the scent combines a delicate femininity with a seductive allure and a mysterious beauty.

“In developing In Bloom, I found myself drawn to the scents of my childhood in Tennessee,” explains Reese Witherspoon. “We had a great big Magnolia tree in the back yard, and it’s that beautiful white blossom that inspired the perfume. In Bloom is indicative of where I am in my life today. I’m feeling very strong and independent, and so happy, so full of life. The fragrance truly captures that feeling­­—it’s very sensual, very romantic and alluring.”

In Bloom sparkles with a provocative blend of notes, including: Georgia Peach Tea Leaves, Crisp Greens, Star Gardenia, Magical Magnolia, Night Blossoming Jasmine, Cashmere Woods, Hypnotic Florals, and Amber Wood Crystals.
