I love seeing what people chose to pick up at Sephora’s 20% off fall sale. I often use the sale to finally purchase an expensive item on my wish-list or to try out some new products. This year, however, I was totally practical. I decided to save money by restocking some of my staples. I ordered five items that are products that I use everyday. Continue reading

My Fav Perfume (in Rollerball Form!)

Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey perfume

Issey Miyake L’eau d’Issey

Hi everyone! September combined with moving and putting my house on the market has kept me from blogging as often as I like to. On a business trip I got a chance to do a little Sephora and MAC shopping and got some great new stuff, so I’m really looking forward to sharing them with you. I just thought I’d do a quick post today about the perfume I picked up in Sephora.

How much do I love that Sephora has nearly all of it’s perfumes available in rollerballs?! Traveling with perfume is a nightmare. I love that the 7.5ml rollerballs are allowed in my carry-on, especially now that airlines in Canada just starting charging $25 to check a bag (although I know this is common in the US, so I shouldn’t complain).

According to the mag I was reading on the flight, I’m a “signature scent” kind of girl, that is, I don’t change up my perfume. I have been wearing only Issey  Miyake L’Eau d’Issey for years now. Its my absolute favourite. I don’t know how good I am at describing a fragrance, so here’s what Sephora says:

L'Eau d'Issey perfume descriptionMy fiance says I smell like “chocolate and orchids”. Can’t argue with that right? 🙂

Are you a signature scent girl or do you like wearing different perfumes?

Thanks for stopping by ❤
