Here at Certified Fabulous we recently had the opportunity to try three of L'Occitane's beautiful fragrances and we were really enjoyed the diversity in these scents. There are so many fragrance options out there and we know choosing the right fragrance for yourself or for someone else as a gift can be a difficult process. These three scents offer a little something for everyone.

Loccitane rose perfumeCelebrate the flower of Queens with Roses et Reines Eau de Toilette. I like a fragrance with a story and this one really enhances the perfume. This fragrance is inspired by the four daughters of the Count of Forcalquier, all of who cherished roses (L’Occtaine). As the flowers were said to have made them queens, this fragrance includes their favorite roses – the Grasse rose, Bulgarian rose, Moroccan rose, and the Turkish rose (L’Occitante).

I love the smell of Roses and this eau de toilette has just the right amount without it being too overpowering. There’s a richness to the fragrance, but maintains light, floral, and fruity notes. This fragrance will be my go-to as we head into the end of summer and beginning of fall. It doesn’t have a musky or spicy scent, so it’s perfect for summer evenings, and it’s not too sweet that it can carry well into the fall. Although I love deep and intriguing fragrances, I’ve always wanted one that just smells like roses: something simple, elegant, and wearable. Thankfully I have found Roses et Reines and it now has a permanent front row spot on my bureau!

If you want to enhance the intensity and longevity of Roses et Raines, layer with Roses et Reines Beautifying Body Milk. If you just want to experience a touch of the fragrance throughout the day, Roses et Reines Hand & Nail Cream is perfect to carry in your purse.Shaveworks Pearl Souffle shave cream

How else can you feel like a queen other than using Roses et Reines? Well I think smooth skin is a good way to start. Upgrade your ordinary shave cream to Shaveworks Pearl Souffle Luxurious Shave Cream. Not only will this shave cream ensure a smooth shave, it also exfoliates, moisturizes, and soothes your skin. This shave cream includes capislow to minimize the appearance of hair growth, phytic and glycolic acid to exfoliate and reduce ingrown hairs, and mediacalm complex for moisturizing benefits. Herbal and botanical extracts also help heal and soothe your skin. After using this shave cream, I’m left with smooth, moisturized skin, and a longer lasting shave. I tend to get razor irritation and this is a great cream to reduce that irritation and redness. I now use this cream every time I shave!

There are many luxurious products that can make you feel, even just a little bit, like a queen, but these two have now established themselves as staples in my beauty routine!

I love the scents of the summer air. It smells of life, vibrancy and sweet nature...there's nothing else like it! When it comes to perfumes and scents to wear in the summer I like to keep them light and fresh to maintain the tone and feel of summer. I feel in love with L'Air De Nina Ricci Perfume Gift Set with Eau De Parfum Spray and Body Lotion! The scent complimented the summer air and added a tone of sweetness while still be light and fresh. L Air Nini Ricci Paris Set

Make your work day go a little more smoothly with the addition of L'air de Nina Ricci, a perfume for women. Introduced in 2011 by Nina Ricci, this perfume draws inspiration from the classic fragrance L'Air du Temps. With a subtle mixture of floral notes and softer feminine notes, this perfume lets you feel sweet and innocent even in the middle of a hard day, and the fragrance will even help you get through a day of shopping or running errands. gift

As a self-proclaimed perfume connoisseur I typically go for more masculine scents, but I was surprised by this perfume and how much I enjoyed wearing it! It wasn't overpowering with florals, which I don't care for. Instead it has a light floral scent with a powdery fresh tone to it, which makes for a flattering combination! I haven't come across a perfume that smells like this before so I have been reaching for this a lot more to spray on each day :) This gift set conveniently comes with a matching lotion which is equally as nice! I like putting the lotion on right after the shower and following up with the perfume for the ultimate fragrant pampering. I highly recommend trying this out for yourself and you can easily do so at www.fragrancenet.com

Another simple summer beauty love I just experienced is the www.BoxyCharm.com service! 

AprilBox-thebox BoxyCharm certified fabulous beauty style fashion makeup skincare hairBOXYCHARM is a beauty box subscription that surprises you each month with the best beauty products from popular and chic brands.

As Valentine's Day approaches, perhaps you're looking for some little gifts to give your special loved ones, or perhaps something to spoil yourself & feel good on the romantic holiday. I'm not really a huge fan of Valentine's Day, it is what it is, so I'm all about spoiling myself and finding new products to love!

If you're in the market for a new blush, looking for a fresh-faced rosy glow, IT Cosmetics has just the item you want: IT Cosmetics Airbrush Blush Stain. I personally really like this blush and I don't wear blush all that much. But if I'm dressing up or looking to add some warm color to my makeup, then I'll turn to blush. This is a poreless finish HD Micro-Blush meaning you'll get a poreless, shine free, lit-from-within glow! It is a very soft pink with a touch of coral shade. I wasn't really sure how this would look on my skin, but it created this lovely warm glow and didn't look over done. It also has a weightless feel for a more natural appearance. This blush contains Vitamins K, A, C & E and feels very soft on your skin. What I also really love about this blush is that it creates a "soft focus finish," smoothing out your complexion for that silky, glowing appearance! If you're thinking of gifting this blush, it is ideal for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It is oil-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, non-drying, and hypoallergenic. IT Cosmetics Airbrush Blush stain is available at QVC.com

IT Cosmetics Blush 2.4.14

This next product is a decadent, dark nail kit, great to add a little sultry sass to your Valentine's day. Ciaté's Velvet Manicure in Blue Suede is a great way to change up your nail polish look & texture. This kit includes the 3am Girl Nail Polish Paint Pot, blue crushed velvet & nail brush. It looks a little complicated at first, but it's a pretty easy process. First step, apply the first coat of nail polish to all your nails and let that dry completely. Then, working with one nail at a time, apply another coat of nail polish and immediately (while the polish is still wet) sprinkle the crushed velvet over the nail. Make sure you really get a good layer on there and then brush the excess velvet off with the little brush. The kit comes with a little plastic tray that you'll want to use to catch the excess velvet. Then repeat with the rest of your nails and viola! Velvety sophistication on your nails! I went through the process twice to get an even thicker layer of velvet. You really want to make sure you cover your entire nail; if you apply thin layer of velvet, you will still be able to see some of the glossy shine from the nail polish. The more velvet you apply, the richer the look and texture! Just make sure to brush off the excess so you're left with an even surface. This makes a great gift for the nail polish lover, or for anyone looking for something different in their nail polish style. Ciaté's Velvet Manicure in Blue Suede is available at QVC.com

Lots of musical artists are popping up and launching their perfumes this year! The repeat celebrity scents that keep staying at the top of the celebrity scent game are Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears. They are among the hardest working and most popular music artists in 2013 and are working hard to keep their ranking in 2014. With these new scents I had the pleasure of reviewing, I think so far so good! 

nicki minaj pink friday limited edition perfume spray scents certified fabulous celebrity

Nicki Minaj: Pink Friday Deluxe Edition perfume spray - Her unforgettable and hard to miss statuesque silhouette bottle of herself represents the singer perfectly as this limited edition scent will keep you wanting more! Juicy, mysterious and alluring are the first words that come to mind when smelling this perfume. It has a sexy dark richness along with a mouth watering air of temptation. I absolutely loved this perfume and it is perfect for a night out at a club or a casual first date. Described as "The intoxicating scent of the original Pink Friday is re-interpreted as a rich and seductive perfume - the ultra-luxe floral musk is intensified, emphasizing sensuality through its exhilarating bold and sexy notes." Use with caution...a suitable scent to wear if you want male attention, hah. BUY AT: www.macys.com

justin bieber the key perfume celebrity scents certified fabulous

Justin Bieber: THE KEY - Packaging is getting very creative with perfume now-a-days. Beiber is no exception with his GIRLFRIEND perfume but he toned it down considerably for THE KEY. A simple white, long rectangular shaped bottle that contains a gold key hooked to the side may seem more ordinary than his GIRLFRIEND bottle, but it by no means is any less awesome! Soft, powderly and youthful are the first words that come to mind when smelling this scent. This is my everyday sort of perfume that I can wear at work or at any day function or event I am going to. Described as "energetic with a sexy splash of sparkling freshness, the luminous fruity floral musk fragrance awakens the senses with a burst of juicy fruits, while the heart blooms to unveil a bright bouquet of sheer floralcy. The creamy dry down blends sensual musks and exotic precious woods with decadent notes of vanilla that will leave you dreaming for more."  BUY AT:www.macys.com

Fall is my second favorite season (after summer of course) and one of the reasons is because I love fall beauty and fashion! If I were to put fall style into one word it would be BOLD! I love bold and dramatics looks too. I even love the dark lips and minimal eye makeup or the dark and romantic dark eye makeup looks...I just love it all! We had so much to talk about for our Fall Must Haves and Faves that we had to make it 2 weeks of recommendations! Today I give you my top 6 list for makeup, nails and scents :)

Perfume is not only for your body anymore it is now an option for your hair! I think this is a genius idea and a few celebrities have starting creating hair scenting sprays that I just love!

Niki Minaj Body Lotion Fall Beauty

Niki Minaj Fall Beauty

1) Nicki Minaj: Pink Friday Scented Body Lotion & Pink Friday Scented Hair Mist - It's the same Pink Friday scent we all know and love but even more effective when used in combination with the body lotion and hair mist! Fragrance NotesGrapefruit, juicy apple, star fruit, waterlily, honeysuckle, Italian mandarin, blackberry, white raspberry, boysenberry, lotus, starry jasmine, caramelized pear, vanilla and musk. I love the Nicki Minaj perfumes so this one of course was awesome! This one is a flirty, fun scent that I love wearing when I go out for a fun girls night or even during the day when I want to keep it light, fresh and sweet.

Ralph Lauren Big Pony 1 Blue 8.15.13I’m a scent person. I have scent memories, as most people do.  I’ve been attracted to members of the opposite sex based solely on their scent.  I love testing new fragrances, although not all are created equal. It was a pleasure for me to try Ralph Lauren The Big Pony 1 for Women- “Sporty” Eau de Toilette this month.  I’ve always loved Ralph Lauren’s fragrances, and this Eau de Toilette is no exception.

Ralph Lauren The Big Pony 1 for Women is described as a sporty fragrance for courageous and self-confident woman. Its composition is created of citruses and flowers and it accentuates luminous grapefruit combined with sensual floral notes of white lotus. This fragrance is light and fresh smelling.  I like a “soapy” smelling perfume because it smells clean and fresh to me. This fragrance has the fresh qualities I look for in a fragrance, but also has sweet undertones of fragrance which add a feminine component to this fragrance. Every time I wear this fragrance I get sniffs, and comments about how nice it is.

Ralph Lauren The Big Pony 1 for Women- “Sporty” Eau de Toilette was launched in 2012. This fragrance comes in a light blue bottle with a large green #1 on one side and Ralph Laurens signature polo player in yellow on the other side.  An interesting thing to note about this packaging is that it can be personalized with your name, or up to 10 characters of your choosing on the front of the bottle.  This is a really cool option when thinking about gifting this fragrance to your best friend, sister, mother, or even yourself. I just love anything personalized. So if you are looking for a new fragrance, and like a clean fresh scent, I urge you to give Ralph Lauren The Big Pony 1 for Women- “Sporty” Eau de Toilette a try!!

I love perfume! You probably realized that if you read my last perfume overhaul review for Valentine’s Day Gift week in February when I reviewed 8 celebrity perfumes! I wear perfume every day and I just don’t feel complete without it. I use it as an expression of my mood for the day or what mood I want to reflect depending on if I have a big business meeting or a first date :)
 

For this celebrity perfume overhaul review I got to try the new Nicki Minaj perfume Pink Friday- Special Edition, as well as Closer by Halle Berry and Beyonce Midnight Heat.

For the young mom or the mom that has a little bit of a wild side to her, Nicki Minaj Pink Friday perfume- Special Edition would suit her well! The box is a gorgeous girly looking design with a Nicki Minaj picture on one side (of course). I think she is a very interesting person just to look at because she is so colorful and animated! I think she is really beautiful and just plain fun. Now I must warn you about this perfume, it might be intimidating for someone to own because the bottle is basically Nicki Minaj's body from the waist up. So...in order to spray the bottle you are basically holding on to the bottle boobs. Once you get over that, you will enjoy the perfume! The bottle is just a crazy design for a bottle! Her whole head is the cap so it's strange to take her head off to reveal the sprayer, hah. There is even a cute little necklace that dangles on the bottle's neck. The scent is just as I would describe Nicki Minaj, bold and girly. It's a very nice floral scent, which to me is the strongest fragrance notes that are picked up...at least on my skin. Other scents that are in this perfume:

The original Pink Friday (just so you can compare between the two) has:

  • Top Notes: Starfruit, Italian Mandarin, Boysenberry
  • Heart Notes: Water Lily, Honeysuckle, Star Jasmine Petals
  • Drydown: Creamy Vanilla, Caramelized Pear, Skin Musk, Sheer Woods

Next week is Valentine's Day and this week and next week we will be helping you pick out that special gift for your significant other, your friend, family members or even YOURSELF! 

A fast growing celebrity trend has been to come our with your own scent! Tons of stars have jumped on board to create their own perfume line and I gladly took the challenge to test out 8 of the most popular celebrity scents on the market. 

02062013 Wonderstruck Enchanted  4 oz bottle certified fabulous taylor swift celebrity scent perfume1) Taylor Swift: Wonderstruck Enchanted - A very adorable bottle with charms that dangle on the bottle, easy to remove and make your own necklace (Yes, I am going to be doing that!). The bottle looks cute and it came in a styled box, with the lovely Taylor Swift modeling a beautiful red dress. It draws me in to pick up the box with the gorgeous design and the scent is amazing! This is the type of perfume that is typically my style because it was a deep mysterious scent that is very alluring and whimsical. Almost like deep forestry scents with hints of floral and berry undertones. This one was one of my favorites for sure! This is perfect for wearing when going out at night, but since it's my preferred type of perfume scent I just wear it anytime. 

2) Justin Bieber: Girlfriend - This bottle is SO crazy...original...but crazy, 02062013 GIRLFRIEND celebrity scent perfume certified fabulous justin beiberhah. Once taken out of the box (which of course has a picture of the teen dream) there is this twisty, artistic outer layer which you pop the top off of and reveals a heart shaped bottle. This is for sure the most unique packaging I have encountered in the perfume world...but that makes it intriguing. The scent is unusual...not is a bad way...it's hard to explain, but I first smelled it and didn't think I would like it, then I sprayed it on and actually loved it! I have already used this word a lot in describing this perfume...but if I had one word to sum up my feelings for this perfume INTRIQUING is the word! It is a scent that can be wore day or night which is always great to have a universal perfume :)

02062013 Britney Spears TWIST Solo certified fabulous celebrity scents perfume3 & 4) Britney Spears: Fantasy Twist - I counted this as 2 perfumes...well, because it is. It is genius to have a 2-in-1 perfume that is also so well packaged! They connect together in a sphere shape and you simply separate the two by splitting the sphere with the divot found by the charm. The charm, by the way, has a little clasp that you can easily unhook from the bottle to be able to use or hook anywhere...this is also a good move because most bottles that have amazing and cute charms on the bottle are solidly attached and you have to basically rip them off just to reuse or save them. Okay, so now02062013 Britney Spears TWIST Solo certified fabulous celebrity scents perfume Split the scent. The pink side, Fantasy, is a great day scent. It is girly and sweet and reminds me of what sugar should smell like. There is a hint of a peppery, spicy after scent, which is the reason why I love this one. I personally do not like the sweet, girly girl, flower scents...but this one puts a twist on it which makes it likable by most types I imagine. I just assumed the lighter (pink) side was for day and the dark (purple) side for night, but I would say you can easily wear both at any time. The purple side has a very smooth, calming scent to it. It's not as dramatic as the pink side, but something very subtle in the way it presents itself. It could almost blending into your skin and be considered "your smell"...it's like a perfume secret weapon...calm and smooth like a sneak attack on your crush :) Maybe use this one with caution, hah.

I probably shouldn’t date myself, but I remember the Calgon… Take Me Away commercials very well. My mother used to have the bath products and would on occasion slip away to soak in a nice bath. I myself never had a lot of time for Calgon bath products to “take me away” when my children were young, but I have enjoyed some of their other iconic fragrances from time to time.

This year Calgon has a sexy fragrance mist gift set with three very sensual scents to entice and refresh. And it’s always fun to give or receive a holiday gift set this time of year so ladies, pass this along to your significant other and make their holiday shopping easy.

The Sensual Mist Sampler Gift Set contains:

angelic kiss - soft romantic notes of golden bergamot, mandarin zest and finishes with white lavender, musk & vanilla.

femme inferno – this fiery seduction opens with woody scents of pink pepper, bergamot and rose petals and follows with a touch of lily of the valley and notes of kashmir, sandalwood and amber musk.
