All too often, subscription boxes can leave us feeling – well, boxed in. I don’t know about you, but I like more than just beauty, or just fashion, or just fitness products. But I don’t have unlimited funds to get subscription boxes each month for all the kinds of products I like.
Enter FabFitFun, a seasonal subscription gift box with full-size fashion, beauty, fitness and lifestyle goodies. Since it’s a mix, I wasn’t sure if all the products in FabFitFun’s box would appeal to me, but as soon as I opened the Summer 2015 box, I was delighted. They just GET me. It felt like Christmas in July, and I didn’t even shop on Prime Day. Continue reading FabFitFun Summer 2015 Box Review
I don’t know a girl who’d say she has too many perfumes. I’m a sucker for the oriental, floral, woodsy variety – the ones people call “exotic”, “intoxicating”, or “heady”. Even gourmand fragrances can get me going; so long as it’s not too fruity, I’m in.
I got to try the Scentbird fragrance service which has a personalized scent recommender, and it spit out Tom Ford Violet Blonde for me. I wasn’t familiar with the scent, but I figured I’d give it a go. (Besides, where else can you get the highest-end fragrances for $14.95 a month?)

Ever wondered what fragrance a Bond Girl would wear? Apparently, it’s Kenzo Amour Le Parfum. Bond bombshell Olga Kurylenko is the face of the new fragrance, a woody oriental scent.
Here’s the fragrance by note breakdown:
Top notes: rice, frangipani
Heart notes: amber, patchouli
Base notes: vanilla, benzoin
The bottle is a gorgeous magenta inspired by the geisha girls of southeast Asia, and the scent is much more spicy and less innocent than Kenzo’s other fragrances like FlowerbyKENZO and Kenzo Ryoko. Check out the commercial below!

Ah, Paris. Since I can’t go back yet, I’ll have to celebrate fashion designer Sonya Rykiel’s 40th anniversary with a piece of her collection that won’t break the bank… her beautifully exotic fragrance, Belle en Rykiel.
- Top notes: mandarin, red currant, lavender flowers
- Heart notes: heliotrope, coffee blossom, frankincense
- Base notes: patchouli, amber, vanilla, mahogany wood
This oriental fragrance was created to seduce the senses with a frankincense-lavender accord, mouth-watering red currant, and a sweetness of vanilla. Feel tres Parisienne with this fairy tale fragrance from the famed French designer, even if you can’t afford her iconic knit sweaters.
Belle en Rykiel sells for $85 in the 100ml size at Bloomingdale’s and Amazon.com.
