Katy Perry Mad Love



At first whiff I thought this new Katy Perry fragrance was way over the top and too fruity and sweet for my tastes. And at first it is, the forward notes are juicy berry and sweet. But after trying it out and letting it dry I’ve found I am really taken with this scent. It is sweet but calms down and the woody and musk notes really even out the sweet.  The longer I wear it the better it smells and I find myself sniffing my wrist again to get another whiff. Its a really great daytime summer scent and I find myself choosing it almost every day. On top of being a great scent I love the bottle, its understated and really pretty.

KATY PERRY’S MAD LOVE highlights juicy fruity notes of lady apple sorbet, mara strawberry and pink grapefruit, established as key notes of the composition. The heart is composed of bleeding heart flower, peony and jasmine. Sensuality and warmth is provided by velvety musk while precious woody notes of sandalwood and coconut contribute to depth and longevity of the composition.

Exclusively presented and available at Kohl, fragrance Mad Love attracts attention with its design and details. A love arrow is illustrated on the neck of the bottle, while a relief ehart with inscribed name of the fragrance decorates the body of the bottle. Mad Love can be obtained as a 30ml Eau de Parfum.

DIY: Watermelon & Coconut Oil Hair Mask

DIY Coconut Oil Hair Mask_zpsggx9wpyv

Photo credits:

“It’s no secret that coconut oil is like liquid gold where hair is concerned. Dry hair slurps it up immediately, and you can feel and see the difference after a treatment,” explains Wendy Rose Gould beauty expert for hair tutorial and advice site

“Today we’re taking the traditional coconut oil hair mask one step further, though, by combining coconut oil with a super potent blend of hair-nourishing oils. Together, they’ll soften, hydrate, restore and strengthen the ends of your hair to prevent dreaded breakage and split ends.”


About The Oils:
Coconut Oil: The base of this anti-breakage, split-end treatment is coconut oil. All hair can benefit from coconut oil, but it’s especially beneficial for brittle, breaking hair. It’ll deeply moisturizing, soften and add sheen.
Oontanga Oil: This is oil made from African watermelon seeds, and it’s loaded with essential fatty acids that stops your hair from breaking and makes hair shiny.
Camellia Seed Oil: This oil comes from Korea and permeates the hair shaft to restore vibrancy and strength. It also softens your hair and keeps split ends and breakage at bay.
Argan Oil: This is a conditioning oil that seals the cuticle, adds shine, and makes hair more manageable during the styling process.

Note: Because this treatment is so oil heavy, we recommend restricting usage to your ends, which is where most breakage and split ends occur anyway.



Coconut Oil Hair Mask Recipe:

Step 1
Combine two tablespoons of liquid coconut oil with 10 drops of each of the other oils and stir well.

Step 2
Apply the oil blend to the ends of your hair and let it set for 10 to 20 minutes before shampooing.

Step 3
Condition and style as normal and repeat once a week for best results.

This recipe makes enough for three weeks of treatment (depending on hair length and thickness). Store in an airtight jar in a dark place. If you place it in the fridge, you’ll need to zap it for 30 seconds to melt it down again.
