Mariah vs. P Diddy

Diddy recently issued a challenge…

“I send out a challenge…I challenge all of my female counterparts that have fragrances…that my fragrance is better than theirs. I’m a man and I know how women should smell!”

Mariah responds…

“I heard about this competition, and I wish Puff all the best with his new fragrance, but I think we’re actually appealing to different types of women. M by Mariah Carey is about being unforgettable, not unforgivable. It’s not about a ménage à trois or a one night stand, it’s for the woman who wants the man to fall in love with her immediately, stay in love, and treat her like royalty.”

M by Mariah Carey captures the intricate beauty of Mariah’s music in this sophisticated harmony of fragrance notes and accords. Drawing upon Mariah’s own personal experiences, each of the three key elements of the scent embodies a part of her, eliciting her warmth, sensuality and glamour.

M by Mariah Carey embodies the beauty, complexity and femininity for which Mariah Carey is so well known and loved. It is a harmonious union of velvety sensual notes and the textured floralcy of the Living Tahitian Tiare flower.

“For me, creating this scent was like creating a song – it takes many notes to compose a fragrance.  It’s like a beautiful melody.” Mariah Carey

This looks like a great set but $230 is a large chuck of change. Now I know there are women who can buy beauty products without every worrying about sticker shock. Unfortunately I was not born with a silver spoon and we have yet to find a rich long lost uncle. So what is your biggest beauty splurge you have spent on one item?
