Olfactif January Perfume Box - Winter’s Cocoon

I’m terribly late with my January Olfactif post, for which I’m sorry! I’ve been having a tough time getting back into my blogging routine after the holidays and two weeks with the kids home! Let’s have a look at what beautiful scents Olfactif chose for us this month.

Bath and Body Works Forever Vanilla Rum


Bath and Body Works has released another scent in the Forever collection. Forever Red Vanilla Rum will have you swooning, if you love sultry gourmand scents like I do!

Notes in Vanilla Rum:
vanilla rum & black lily drenched in decadent créme de cassis
Top Notes: Sparkling Mandarin, Créme de Cassis, Black Lily
Mid Notes: Jasmine Petals, Sheer Gardenia, Apricot Nectar
Dry Notes: Rich Vanilla Rum, Seductive Musk, Black Cashmere Woods

I found Vanilla Rum to be quite a soft skin scent without too much throw. Even layering the body cream and edp spray, I had to reapply after a few hours. I don’t really consider that a drawback, just something worth mentioning. This is a limited edition, and I just noticed Bath and Body Works website has the Forever Red Vanilla Rum line for 50% off. You may want to stock up!

Have you tried Vanilla Rum, or any other Bath and Body Works scents lately that you are loving?

Lisa Hoffman Beauty Black Collection

Lisa Hoffman Beauty combines two of my favorite things, jewelry and fragrance! The newest addition to the Lisa Hoffman line is the Black Collection. The bracelet features matte black onyx beads with crystal spacers and a hematite fragrance charm to hold your scented wooden beads.

The Black bracelet is so classy, and adds elegance to any outfit! The scented beads diffuse fragrance for weeks. As with all of Lisa’s jewelry, you have your choice of fragrance. You can choose from French Clary Sage, Japanese Agarwood, Kerala Ashok Garden, Madagascar Orchid, Tunisian Neroli and Tuscan Fig.

Pictured are my bracelets: Swarovski Elements Pearl bracelet, Black Collection Onyx bracelet, and the Kerala Ashok Garden bracelet. I love how they look stacked!
You can sign up to receive emails from Lisa Hoffman Beauty, they run fabulous sales on occasion!
