• Marina Rinaldi “Marina Rinaldi” (Eau de Parfum) •

By Posted on 2 5.5K views

In the beginning of November, Marina Rinaldi – definitely one of my favorite brands for classy plus-size fashion – released their first fragrance. I was offered a personalized flacon of the perfume, with my name on it – and you guys know how much I love everything with my name on it (just remember my → summer hat!). ;)

I think it’s always kind of interesting when clothing brands (without a beauty line) or celebrities launch their own fragrance. Especially celebs have mostly disappointed me by creating horribly sweet and extremely heavy scents I just can’t stand because I get a bad headache. But there were a few brand perfumes which actually surprised me because it’s simply something new, something you don’t really expect from them – and there has to be a great perfumer behind the whole thing. ;)

To be honest, I don’t know everything about the story of this fragrance, but the information I received was enough to make me curious. :) So when I picked up my bottle at the Marina Rinaldi store in Hamburg, I was happy to already get the first smell of it – and I was absolutely delighted!

• Yves Saint Laurent “Mon Paris” (Eau de Parfum) •

I grew up with my mother always wearing “Paris” by Yves Saint Laurent – a true classic and a very feminine (and since I was little when I kept smelling it) and mature fragrance. → “Mon Paris” seemed to be a younger and wilder “version” of it (I don’t really know if it is related to the original “Paris”, so that’s my own thought), the official description sounds euphoric and adventurous, sensual and like a love declaration – and this whole mixture made me very interested. Today, I want to share my review of this amazing perfume with you.

• Gucci “Bamboo” (Eau de Parfum) •

Gucci “Bamboo” was already launched some time ago, but since it’s not limited, you can read my review of this lovely fragrance today. It’s an → eau de parfum and to be honest, I can’t wait to see this available as an eau de toilette. I love the scent, but for me it could be a little bit lighter and fresher – I just prefer eau de toilettes, that’s a personal thing. :)

• Dolce & Gabbana “The One Essence” (Eau de Parfum) •

I’ve already mentioned → this fragrance in my little gift guide (still looking for some presents? – click here!). I think it’s the perfect gift for “The One”, be it your girlfriend or wife, your mother or even your best friend, there’s always that one very special person in our lives who deserves it, and with this perfume you can definitely let her know. By the way: there’s also a → male version of the fragrance and it’s absolutely great!
