Long time no see, but my laptop crashed, I finally decided to splurge on an iPad and now that I'm somewhat accustomed to it I decided to write my first 2012 post! I haven't figured as yet how to transfer photos from my camera, so please excuse me for the crappy photo!
Now, my first purchase of the year are two perfumes. It's been a long time since I bought a perfume, and I really needed something new.
The first one is Stella by Stella McCartney, from the Print collection and it has been sitting on the top of my wish list since October. I loved the cute little bottles from first sight but for some reason I always forgot to get it, and after a while I thought I wouldn't find it anymore (it's limited edition) so when I accidentally saw it today I almost did the happy dance! I was browsing perfumes and perfume sets that where on sale at Hondos Center and it was hidden on a shelf behind a pillar (lucky me!).
The perfume itself is really discreet but sensual at the same time, a combination that I always like.
Notes: Rose, peony flower, mandarine, rose absolute and amber.
30ml EDP at €46,10 purchased on 25% sale at €34,57.
The next one is Lovestruck by Vera Wang, a relevantly new and quite popular perfume. The perfume itself is floral and sweet but in a quiet, delicate way. As for the bottle, it's a statement by itself, girly in a more mature way.
Notes: Pink guava, mandarin, Tuberose, Lotus blossom, Precious woods, Sheer musk.
30ml EDP at €38,68 purchased on 25% sale at €29,01.
Here are the two if them side by side
