Sampled Out | Perfumes

Well howdy to a flaming 2020 💣

Ok, let's remain positive and do what we have to to beat this thing.


If you're looking for a brief escape from the onslaught of bad news, #nojudgementzone here. Let me hop back into this blogging thing for a much needed source of distraction and hopefully; a lil product information.

We've never really talked about perfumes before so let's do that:

Perfume Sample Empties - www.modenmakeup.com

Maison Margiela REPLICA 'Dancing On The Moon' 0.04 fl. oz.

Description: "Dancing On The Moon is an invitation to an extraterrestrial escape.
The fragrance delicately combines a bouquet of white flowers with a soft mineral side.
White Jasmine flower is lifted by aldehydes and moonflower notes.
As the perfume evolves, the warmer notes of ambergris, musk and vanilla emerge.

Feel the weightlessness of your body slip away from reality.
Your ethereal moves cast pale shadows on the lunar landscape.
A gracious defiance.

This bright Eau de Parfum is part of the Replica Fantasies Collection.


Top notes: Aldehyde, Moonflower
Middle notes: Sambac Jasmine, Fragranpani Tree, Iris
Base notes: Cashmeran, Ambregris Accord, Musks.
"

This is not a typical scent for me but I can appreciate the added ump! Musky scents tend to mix with my b.o. and get real 'headache-y' so that's the first reason I wouldn't purchase the full size. The second is the price; 3.4 oz retails for $180USD 😒

Missoni Eau de Toilette Missoni

Description: "Missoni Eau de Toilette is a citrusy - floral - woody fragrance. The tart top notes include blood orange and pink pepper, along with juicy Nashi pear and water flowers. A transparent bouquet of freesia, peony, Givaudan molecule Rosyfolia, rose water and heliotrope is located in the core of the perfume, after which the composition ends with warm tones of musk, white cedar and a Georgywood accord. The perfumer is Quentin Bisch, who was also behind the Eau de Parfum version."

I'm a fan of citrusy scents so this is a hit for me. It's an older scent and surprisingly very affordable on eBay ($30+USD).

Tocca 'Giulietta'

"DescriptionFragrance Family: Floral
Scent Type: Classic Florals

Key Notes: Pink Tulips, Green Apple, Vanilla Orchid

Giulietta is a fresh floral fragrance that beckons your inner muse. A tribute to youthful, feminine charm, Giulietta is an enchanting blend of delicate pink tulips, fresh green apples, and sweet vanilla orchid. A romantic indulgence sure to inspire great art and passion.

About the Bottle: TOCCA’s iconic fragrance bottle is inspired by the beauty of antique crystal. The decorated cap is hand finished, no two are the same. Discover TOCCA’s brand motto, "Love yourself," as a hidden message on every product.
"

Florals are usually another headache inducing category so I'm skeptical. 1.7 oz retails for $76USD. Thankfully this is available on Sephora.com, so there's a 0.33 and 0.68 oz. Who does love trying a $27USD roll-on before committing to a full size? The scent is also available in a candle.

Maison Margiela REPLICA 'Lazy Sunday Morning' 0.05 fl. oz.
Description: "Lazy Sunday Morning is a floral fragrance, smooth like a morning in bed, with delicate notes of creamy White Musk and Lily of the Valley.
The joy of waking up with the sunbeam on your skin and crumpled sheets...A pure sensation of comfort.

Enveloping and relaxing, this pure floral Eau de Toilette is part of the Replica collection.

Use one of Replica Filters to twist your favorite scent.


Top notes: Pear Accord, Ambrette Seeds, Clean Accord
Middle notes: Iris Accord, Rose Petales, Orange Flower
Base notes: Patchouli Indonesia, White Woods, White & Creamy Musk.
"

I know I just said I'm not a fan of florals but this is one I like! Maybe because eau de toilettes are less potent than eau de parfumes. A 3.4 oz bottle will set you back $130USD. I forgot to mention that I really like this brand's packaging. The labels look clean and modern to me. I dunno. 0.3 oz sizes are also available.

Jo Malone London 'English Pear & Freesia' Cologne 

Description"Fragrance Family: Floral

Scent Type: Fruity Florals

Key Notes: King William Pear, Freesia, Patchouli

About: Capturing the essence of autumn, the sensuous freshness of just-ripe pears is wrapped in a bouquet of white freesias and mellowed by amber, patchouli, and woods for a luscious and golden olfactory sensation.

What else you need to know: Jo Malone London colognes are meant to be combined. This means you can layer and mix more than one fragrance to create your own, unique, individual scent. Spray liberally and layer with bath and body products to make the most out of your scented experience.
"

Love. Love. Love. 3.4 fl. oz. retails for $140USD. Jo Malone is another brand whose packaging I admire. Their body cremes are amazing! Definitely recommend.

Stay safe people 💗

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.
