Every gal likes to smell good, right? So I’m here with a suggestion for your next “special night out” perfume; or parfume as the fancy-schmancy types say it. John Varvatos’ fragrance. It’s packaged in a very sleek light pink orb that looks just perfect sitting in my retro sixties bathroom (yes, my bathroom is pink too…). I will admit, I wasn’t an immediate fan of this fragrance, but once I wore it and it warmed onto my skin I started to enjoy it. It’s certainly not for everyday (due to price and it smells a bit too fancy for prancing around dusting the house); but I like it for date nights or an evening out with close friends.
Is it for you? Hmmm… hard to tell since our preferences are all so unique. So I’m going to run through the scent layers to better help you decide if this is something you’d be interested in.
