Smell like a poptart (the singing kind, not the eating kind) - Britney Spears, Fergie, Avril Lavigne and Mariah Carey!

Radiance by Britney Spears - 50ml EDP $63, 100ml EDP $78, 200ml Body Souffle $40 - alluring top notes of wild berries and dewy petals;sensual heart notes of tuberose, jasmine, orange flower and iris; and captivating base notes of cashmere woods, luminous amber and skin musk.  It doesn't come out until the end of September, so I haven't smelled it yet and I'm hoping it won't be too floral for me.  I do love the bottle though!  It's so close to tacky, but not quite there and I adore it - because it's so sparkly of course!

Outspoken by Fergie - 50ml - $30 - Another celebrity has joined the Avon stable (that makes her sound like a horse doesn't it?  You know what I mean) with a fragrance that Avon is describing as "outrageous" - of course I'm intrigued!  It has top notes of star fruit, iced berry and wild saffron, a heart of tuberose absolute, midnight jasmine and passion flower and a base of black leather, raw ebony wood and smoky vetiver.

I must say the mention of black leather intrigued me - would it smell like a couch?  Nope, it actually reminds me quite a bit of another celebrity fragrance from my best friend, Kim Kardashian - I expect the similarity for me is the tuberose that they both contain.  Which is okay with me, tuberose is one of the few floral fragrances that appeal to me!

 Mariah Carey Lollipop Bling - 30ml - $42 - in three scents:  Mine Again - a combination of chocolate raspberry and magnolia; Ribbon - inspired by the blue raspberry flavour Ring Pop and contains scents of a floral bouquet; and Honey - a touch of honey and pineapple.  You have probably already seen/smelled these ones as they have been out for awhile.  A great way to hang on to summer - as they are such summery smelling fragrances.  I am partial to Honey!

Avril Lavigne Forbidden Rose - 30ml EDP - $40 - has top notes of red apple, white peach and Bourbon vanilla, heart notes of lotus, heliotrope and fresh green apple and base notes of soft, warm vanilla, chocolate and sandalwood.  I rather liked Rockstar (her first fragrance) so I was hoping I would like this one too, but it just doesn't smell good on me!  The bottle is really pretty so this is a big disappointment - hopefully you'll have better luck with it!

  1. I was actually suprised at how nice the "Outrageous" scent smells! I'll probably switch to that fragrance as the weather gets cooler.
