Black XS is spicy, sexy, and  sweet with a little bit of an edge! This is a great fragrance if you are looking for something that is sexy without being too heavy. A great choice for day or night BlackXS is a really gorgeous scent.

Black Xs Perfume by Paco Rabanne
The spicy, moderate bouquet of Black XS cologne for women by Paco Rabanne makes it an excellent selection for high achievers with active lifestyles.

Just a small splash of Black XS on your neck or wrists provides you the perfect complement for a broad variety of encounters.

alien

I really love this edition of Alien. It’s so long wearing I love a hint of it stays on my clothes. It has all the great notes of the original but this is a softer, warmer version. On top of being a great scent the bottle is simply gorgeous.

Alien Liqueur de Parfum is aged in toasted oak caskets to reveal a rich and sensual fragrance with woody amber notes that are subtly almondy. It is available in 30ml EDP bottle as limited edition.

fragrance1.7ozvanillapassionfruit

I a a huge fan of Lavanila fragrances and the Vanilla Passion Fruit is a whole new scent to adore. While most of the Lavanila line scents fall in the clean and crisp category the Passion Fruit version has definitely has a sexy vibe. It still has all the fresh, fruity vibes of the other lines just with a little more kick while still not overpowering. Great for women of any age.

The Healthy Fragrance Vanilla Passion Fruit
The Tropical Scent of Temptation. A crisp, tropical explosion of Passion Fruit, Guava and Peach Nectar steeped in warm base of sandalwood and Madagascar Vanilla. Created by master natural perfumers and backed by research, this love-attracting scent is uniquely infused with a romantic blend of powerful aphrodisiacs prized for their seductive properties.

New! Guess Girl

To celebrate Guess’s 30th Anniversary, they have released a new fragrance geared towards women in their twenties- Guess Girl. Amber Heard is the face of the new Guess Girl fragrance, for a woman who is bold and playful, sexy and exciting. If you are looking for a fragrance to make a must have for the spring going into the summer. This sweet fruity, floral fragrance is it.

I wasn’t sure if the new Guess Girl would be too young of a scent for me. Being in my mid thirties I didn’t want an alarm to sound when I spritzed it. The scent is beautiful I have really loved wearing it.  Guess girl starts off with hints of raspberry and melon. It has middle notes of orchid and lily with a vanilla dry down. The most prevalent scents to me were the raspberry and orchid notes, so fresh and perfect for spring. The fragrance has great staying power, I can spritz it on in the morning and still smell it at the end of the day.

I love the bottle the shape is simple with just a small logo, the cap is shaped like a flower with material petals inside. Simple but really cute and perfectly spring. If you are looking for a new fragrance to welcome spring check out the great fresh, fruity, floral scent of Guess Girl.

 Available for purchase at Guess.com and Macys.com.

 

SEE IT HERE! Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter Dannielynn gets her own Guess ad!

Six-year-old Dannielynn Birkhead has just landed her very first modeling job as the face of Guess Kids.

Dannielynn is the daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith. The young model has lived with her father, Larry Birkhead, since her mother’s tragic death after a drug overdose in 2007.

Dannielynn fronts the Spring 2013 campaign, wearing next season’s denims.

In a behind-the-scenes video on Entertainment Tonight, Mr Birkhead is nothing but proud of Dannielynn, who bears a strong resemblance to her late mother.

He reveals she was a natural in front of the camera, and ‘needed very little coaching’.

But perhaps it is in her genes: Anna Nicole replaced Claudia Schiffer as the face of Guess in 1992, so little Dannielynn is following in her mother’s footsteps.

Guess creative director Paul Marciano said in a statement: ‘Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on a set.’

Model and one-time Playboy cover girl Anna Nicole Smith died in February 2007 after a prescription drug overdose, just a few months after Dannielynn was born.

Her death sparked a fierce paternity battle between several former lovers, including Mr Birkhead and Anna Nicole’s former lawyer, Howard K Stern (who was named on Dannielynn’s birth certificate).

A DNA test confirmed that Mr Birkhead was the biological father of Dannielynn in April 2007, and he has since retained custody.

Speaking in the Entertainment Tonight video, Mr Birkhead said he was proud of Dannielynn.

He added: ‘I know that Anna’s looking at this and seeing how great this will be.’

Do you think it’s smart to put Dannielynn into modeling so young?
