Four Perfumes I Want To Try

I actually don't wear perfume that often. I have a few bottles that I enjoy but I just tend to wear body spray more often. It's nice to have something I can throw in my purse and refresh myself throughout the day. But I would like to get another perfume or two because I do love how the bottles look and wearing perfume always makes the day feel more special. I think I feel a little more grown up wearing perfume. I'm not going to buy any soon because I am on the no buy but here are 4 perfumes I want to buy.

  1. Kate Spade Twirl

$65 for 1.7 oz Sephora

I got a sample size of this in my Birchbox and I'm in love. It's got a kind of fruity floral scent but it also has just enough musk to make it feel very grown up. And the staying power is amazing! I could still smell where I sprayed it hours later, even after I had taken a shower.

  1. CLEAN Warm Cotton

$69 for 2.14 oz Sephora

I have a thing about fresh laundry. It's my all time favorite scent. If they could bottle the scent of Tide original with Bounce fresh linen, I would have my perfect scent. This got pretty close to how I would want my clean laundry perfume. It's fresh and definitely has that scent without being overpowering.

  1. Bath and Body Works Sea Island Cotton

$29.50 for 2.5 oz Bath and Body Works

I've never tried the Bath and Body Works EDTs before so I don't know how great they are. But I do love the body spray of this. Again, fresh laundry scented although this one is less laundry-ish than CLEAN is. You can definitely smell more of the sea island.

  1. Britney Spears Radiance

$49.50 for 1.7 oz Ulta

I'm not really a fan of a lot of celebrity fragrances. A lot of them smell cheap. Yet somehow I always end up with at least one of those little gift bottles every year at Christmas time. Baffles me. This is one I smell every time we go into a store that carries it. It's very light and feminine smelling without being cheap or teenager-ish.

So there you have it. Maybe I'll convince someone to get me a new bottle of perfume for my birthday or Christmas. Or even treat myself when I get some things off my project pan list. Speaking of which, project pan is still going strong. I'm working my way through a few things and I hope to have something more to share in about a week or so. I'm probably going to break my no buy for an ELF sale if there is one and no, I don't feel like that counts because I've been waiting for a good one for at least a month now.
Pregnancy update: I'm 30 weeks. The results of my blood test came back with good and bad news. Good: No gestational diabetes. Bad: Anemic. I had suspected I was anemic for a while now. I knew my iron was pretty low but I was having a hard time forcing myself to eat more red meat. I was getting more and more fatigued during the day and just generally felt weaker. And when they drew my blood, I bled for a lot longer than usual. I'm on the iron supplements now so hopefully this won't be a major problem.

I'd love to hear what your favorite perfumes are! Leave me a comment!

Love, Jessica


  1. If you like clean laundry scent, then you should try Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion (I have super dry skin, but it's good for normal people for elbows, knees etc) ... every time I put it on I smell like clean laundry! It annoys me since my perfume never matches it, but sounds like it'd be great for you ^.^

  2. I will have to try that! I like to have lotion to match my perfume too. I feel like the scent lingers longer when you layer them.
