Fragrance Samples

Thursday, September 8, 2011

So the other day I checked the mail (this is not a regular occurrence at my house because we only get magazines and junk mail...estatements is where it is at snail mail) and looked in the latest ad from Ulta which contained the following perfume/cologne samples.

I thought this one smelled pretty good.
A very light musk.  It was $52 for 3.4 oz at Sephora
so not too bad on the price. 
{It's cheaper at Sephora - Ulta wants $65 for 1.7 oz}
It definitely smells like flowers...
but that is all...there's no added scent.
On the Coach's website they mention "notes of citrus"
I went back and smelled the card...I didn't smell any notes of citrus.
So I say no on this one.  $65 for 1.7 oz at Ulta.
{same price as}

I hate to say...old lady perfume...
but that is what I immediately thought when I 
smelt it.  Sorry but it does =(
$70 for 2.9 oz at Sephora and Ulta...are you kidding me?
It is more expensive than the Estee Lauder!
I thought celebrity scents were the cheaper ones!

Have you tried any of these?  Tested or wear them?  What do you think?


  1. nice!! i love the coach smells soooooo good!

  2. Great picks, thanks for following me!

  3. I'm probably the only female who can't stand Jen a. She has enough damn money! Haha

  4. Jessica - thanks for commenting!

    Sarah - Thanks & My pleasure!

    Elle - OMG I can't stand her either...I just didn't want to say because...well...I figured I would be shunned from the blog world...LOL But it would still smell like old lady perfume even if I did like her.

    Thank you all for commenting!

  5. lol! old lady perfume. i have to smell that everyday at work.... terrible. its a pretty pic of jennifer aniston though at least. cute cute cute blog.

  6. Yum! What a fun review!

    Terrible thing about Jen. I admit to liking her, but I'm not an old lady perfume fan. Bad Jen. Bad.

  7. Oh, and I meant to tell you. I found a great freelance writing site! You should check out I just started, but I think it might be my best find yet!

  8. Ashley - oh believe me I have my fair share of that at work too...I just wonder how much they put on every day to keep it going that strong!! Thanks for commenting and following!!

    Andrea - It's okay to admit you like her =) We still love Thanks for the website!!

  9. never smelled any of them...i feel like celeb perfumes almost always stink. i think the only one i can tolerate is p. diddy's.

  10. I made a "Blogs and People I Dig" page (it's very elite :) and you made the cut!

    Thanks for being a blog pal to the new gal.

  11. I am bummed that Jennifer Aniston smells like old lady perfume (lol). I have a hard time with designer fragrance, they never smell good on me. I stick with Victoria's Secret or Bath and Body Works. Or Jo Malone cologne when I feel like splurging.


Thank you so much for commenting! I really appreciate it!
