MAC Shadescents, Velvet Teddy Perfume



Our impression of Velvet Teddy is that of a sophisticated, addictive,  and an extremely enjoyable fragrance!  Having worn Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille, we do see some similarities and why this may be deemed a close dupe.  It has longevity and versatility while being a unisex fragrance. Velvet Teddy is one of six fragrances in the Shadescents collection, inspired by, and named after, the legendary shades of MAC Lipsticks.  This oriental fragrance is inspired by the sensuality of the Velvet Teddy Lipstick shade.  It opens with bright bergamot and spicy ginger zest that is tempered with a rich and sensual tobacco flower. The heart of the fragrance is soft golden mimosa, vanilla orchid,  and wild honey accord.  The final notes are liquid musk, smoky papyrus root with an infusion of exotic tonka bean.  Ultimately, it is a very wearable fragrance for everyday use.  Spicey & Divine!

Jo Malone Blossom Girls Plum Blossom Cologne


Top: Yellow Plum

Middle:  Plum Blossom

Base:  White Musk



Floral meets woody musk in this lovely scented cologne, Blossom Girls Plum Blossom, by Jo Malone London. A limited-edition blooming cologne, this perfume bursts with the aroma of Spring! Karen, a “true fragrance junkie”, couldn’t resist taking this home after one whiff.  There might have been a little heel-clicking at the register!  Cerise splashes of plum blossom, this lovely fragrance opens with top notes of yellow blossom, that is fresh and smooth like the Spring air.  The blooming floral middle note of plum blossom has a fruity accent.  A powdery and clean white musk finishes off the scent.  Keep in mind Jo Malone London scents can be worn alone or layer them like Karen does to let her personality shine.  Karen wears this as her everyday scent as it’s casual, sweet and unique!

Scentbird: A Fragrance Subscription Service HERE

A signature scent can say a lot about your personality and current mood.  It can make you feel beautiful, happy, and powerful! Inspired by Scentbird, a fragrance subscription service, we’ve pulled together fragrances from our current collection that will help us build our Ultimate Spring Wardrobe.  For a more in-depth look into each category:  Go Seasonal, Keep It Classic, One For All, Embrace Indie, and Day & Night, we’ve put together a “Building Your Fragrance Wardrobe” video to help you along.  We selected perfumes that we felt would compliment each category right from our own stash!   

2 Orchids Selections:

1.   Go Seasonal– Add a scent reminiscent of the current season.  Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall.  Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming is a floral delight for Spring with notes of Red Berry Accord, Grasse Rose Absolute, Peony,  and White Musk Accord.  Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Eau de Parfum is a daring floral scent with notes of Red Berries, Pear, Exotic White Datura Flower, Creamy White Musks, and Patchouli. 

2.  Keep It Classic– A timeless, and classic scent should always be a staple in your fragrance wardrobe.  Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum is a luxurious and sexy oriental fragrance. 

3. One For All- These are unisex scents that are unlike no other.  Discover something completely different with Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 Eau de Parfum and Glossier You by Glossier.  Molecule 01 is an aroma chemical, not a perfume, that works with your own body chemistry to create your own personal scent.  Glossier You is the ultimate personal fragrance that smells like you!

4.  Embrace Indie– These are unique scents that offer quality ingredients and tons of creativity. They can often be carried into the home as well.  Diptyque Tam Dao Eau de Parfum will wow sandalwood lovers with notes of Goa Sandalwood, Rosewood, Cypress, and Ambergris. 

5.  Day & Night- This is your lighter, everyday fragrance that you wear to work or running errands.  A stronger more prominent scent can be would worn for a night-out-on-the-town. Examples are Derek Lam 10 Crosby Drunk on Youth with notes of Honeysuckle and Crisp Apple. Ralph Lauren Woman is the perfect choice for date night with notes of Bold Tuberose Accord and Vibrant Woods.
