Invigorating Sicilian cedar melds with the crisp vibrancy of apple and the guileless charm of the bluebell, to evoke the essence of a South Italian summer.
The freshness of bamboo nestles amid a glorious feminine bouquet of decadent jasmine and delicate white rose.
Redolent citron wood is entwined with voluptuous amber and a suggestive caress of musk.
Summer just isn’t summer without my beloved Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue! I’d run out of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette (reviewed here) so I picked up a new one, at Harvey Nichols. As a gift with purchase (gwp) I was also given a rather large Messenger Bag that had 007 embossed on it and a deluxe sample of Hugo Boss Red Shower Gel (pretty sure it’s for men but that’s ok because as long as they’re either woods-y or oceanic, I tend to enjoy certain masculine scents). The Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Body Scrub Gel was purchased at Mishref Fair Grounds during the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition.
I hadn’t planned on purchasing anything from Boots (Jabriya) but it was right across the street from my salon and I figured what the hey. I stepped in for a quick peek and as you can see, snagged the cutest little products! By now, you’ll know that I’m quite fond of themes, so once I picked up the Pretty Patisserie Body Butter Trio (which I’d been eyeing initially), I grabbed a few other vanilla-scented products to fit in with the theme… in my head (lawl).
I was at the Avenues Phase III (for the release of H&M x The Weeknd Collection) when I decided to check out the Bath and Body Works branch over there, as well. To get to B&BW, I usually have to cut through Victoria’s Secret. While there, I noticed that Victoria’s Secret were also having an offer on their fragrances (Buy Two Get One Free) so I decided to take advantage of that deal. With that being said, I hate the newer look of their bags! It’s all polka-dotty and whanot. What happened to the adorable stripe-y bags? The new ones are just hideous!
Since I was at the Avenues Phase III anyway (H&M x The Weeknd), I figured I’d check out the Bath & Body Works on that side too. According to the Privileges App, B&BW were having this offer where you could purchase three items (Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Fine Fragrance Mist) for the price of two. Once again, in typical Bath & Body Works fashion, the offer was only applicable on select items (none of the newer collections), and would only last for the weekend. I didn’t want nor need anything, but since I rarely visit the Phase III branch, I figured I’d take a quick peek since I was there.
Since I’d just finished up the bottle of Black Peony that I’d purchased from Zara (ages ago), I went in there to pick up another one. Sadly, yet understandably (it had been several years, after all), I couldn’t find the one I wanted, but I did end up getting these two, instead.
