Perfume Haul: DKNY & Jo Malone

Let me first rant about how SICK I'am. I have stuffy and runny nose AGAIN! Yes, that's right again. I just had cough and colds a week and a half ago and my colds are back. Is this because of the weather here in Canada? too cold and too dry? I sleep with a humidifier on. As of the moment I'm drinking lemon juice- one word: SOUR! I need another instant relief remedy for colds? I was browsing the web and found some homemade medicine to cure colds such as boiled ginger(eew), lemon juice(I'm drinking right now), boiled lady's fingers(eew) and inhaling Eucalyptus(I will do this later before bed). Do you guys have any suggestions? help a friend out.


I was chatting with some twitter friends and apparently so many people are sick these days. I know about 7 people who are victimized by colds and cough. To everyone who is sick I pray that we all find comfort and relief within this week. Amen.


Okay, enough! I shall share with you a small tiny teeny haul. I purchased two perfumes about a month ago and they are the DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom(Limited Edition bottle) and Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia perfume.


Let me just say that I have a perfume illness- I'm OBSESSED with them. I want to try every single one out there. I know this is bad, but I can't resist them. I prefer fruity feminine smell compared to flowery scents. I know most of you prefer flowery scents such as the Marc Jacobs Daisy. I wouldn't say that I hate flowery scents, but I'd rather choose fruity scented perfumes.



Note: I'am BAD at describing perfumes.


I'll start with the DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom- Looking at the name of this perfume "Fresh Blossom" I first thought that this would be the total opposite of what DKNY Be delicious perfume line, but it's not. When I trued this perfume out it reminded me of fresh grapefruits and apples with a tiny rose and jasmine scent. The perfect combination. I wouldn't wear this at night when I have a night out with some friends, but I would totally wear this perfume during the day.
The packaging is to die for!


Next up, Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia- This the newest perfume from Jo Malone and I feel in love with it the first time I tried it on. I know the most popular perfume from Jo Malone is the Nectarine Blossom and Honey. I own that one too, but when you mis them up together, you will smell like a goddess. I love it when people look back at you when you pass by. I do not know why, but I love the feeling because that means that I smell really good, or maybe I smell really bad. I had tons of cmpliments by people I do not know that I smell really good anf fresh. I will definitely recommend buying Jo Malone because the scent lasts all day. I can even smell it the next day after I take a shower- which is a good sign of a good and worth it perfume.

I love the box packaging, not a fan of the bottle, but who cares as long as it smells good.
What are your go-to perfumes? Do you have a specific perfume for summer/spring and winter/fall?

Happy Thursday

Kim

  9. Pei Pa Koa (www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm ) is one of the few Chinese natural cough remedies that have been scientifically studied. it's something like herb plus honey, and it's sweet, thick and black in color. If you have a cough, look for it! It used to be one of my favourite natural cough remedies.

    if your cough persists, seek professional help such as traditional Chinese medicine physicians - I have had very good experiences with them.
