Perfume splurge: Stella Print Collection & Lovestruck

Hello guys and Happy New Year!

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

What's your first purchase of 2012?


  1. Nope, haven't done any purchases for 2012 yet!

    Love the Stella perfume and the LE packaging. Love it. So happy you got it! The Vera Wang perfume bottle, wow!!! That needs a display on its own! xx

  2. My first 2012 purchases was of course make up, a powder and a highlighter from IL-Makiage.
    I really want to try Lovestruck!
    Happy new year!

  3. @cbsg5861 I think that coming this week, with the Daphne Guiness and Iris Apfel mac collections hitting the stores, you"ll find something to catch your attention!

    @smugnificent Talking of makeup, I swatched the other day the MUFE HD foundation and I think it's next on my list (in the quest for the HG foundation, LOL!).


Thank you!
