Miu Miu, Doce&Gabbana, Kate Spade Travel-size Perfumes

Happy Wednesday everyone, hope your week is amazing so far. Today let me show you my new travel-size perfumes that I got at Nordstrom with my beauty purchase __ Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa, Kate Spade New York Walk on Air and  Miu Miu Perfume.  I think I don't  need to tell you how much I like when I get travel-size makeup products or perfumes, it's such a great way to check out some new products before purchase them in full size.

Dolce&Gabbana 'Dolce Rosa Excelsa, Kate Spade 'Walk On Air' and Miu Miu perfume

Let's start with Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa: 
Dolce&Gabbana 'Dolce Rosa Excelsa review on
Dolce&Gabbana 'Dolce Rosa Excelsa'
This is a soft rosy floral, very Sping appropriate perfume. It's not too strong so doesn't give me a headache and it can be worn day&night. The only thing is that I noticed it doesn't last all day. 
Top notes: Papaya flower, neroli leaves
Middle notes: White Amaryllis, Dog Rose, Damascus Rose, Waterlily
Base notes: Cashmeran, Sandalwood.

This Kate Spade 'Walk On Air' perfume is a fresh floral scent, at least that's what the label claims.
Top notes: Linden Blossom, Calabrese Bergamot, Tunisian Neroli
Middle notes: Lili of the Valley, Magnolia Grandiflora, Egyptian Jasmine
Base notes: Crinum Lily, White Iris, Violet Leaf Absolute Orpur
Let me tell you__ this is the worst perfume I've ever smelled. Every time I sniffed this Kate Spade perfume, I had that disgusting feeling I used to have on any scents in my first trimester of my pregnancy, 5 years ago. This perfume gives me a headache from the first minute to the last, and I'm about to vomit until the smell is on my skin. Honestly, I don't remember I 've ever had this disgusting feeling with any perfumes. 

And finally Miu Miu perfume. This is my favorite among these perfumes. It's very elegant scent.

Miu Miu Perfume
Top notes: Star Anise, Ginger, Green Lily of the Valley
Middle notes: Blooming Lily of the Valley, Jasmine Petal, Rose
Base notes: Akigalawood, Sandalwood

It's floral, kinda pepery,  rose  and also green scent, I have to say, it's a very interesting mix of scents. I will definitely purchase the full size of this Miu Miu perfume, for summer. 

Have you tried any of these perfumes? Let me know in the comments below and have a lovely day.

  5. Haha I love your honesty when it came to the Kate Spade scent - it's funny how some fragrances can be loved by some and hated by others! I agree travel-sized fragrances can be great when on-the-go :)

  23. Oh no that Kate Spade one sounds absolutely awful! I'm definitely going to be avoiding it from now on-- thanks for the heads up!


  24. Thanks for a great review, Nina:) I also love getting travel-sized bottles; sometimes I take them with me on vacation instead of a big bottle; it saves so much space!
    P. S. I will make sure to stay away from that Kate Spade perfume, lol.


  25. I love travel size perfumes for testing out new scents. They are also perfect for traveling, since I don't wear a ton of perfume. So funny about the Kate Spade. Probably won't be trying that one!

  26. Want to try that Miu Miu perfume!


  27. Oh so lovely, you got a great selection here girly

    Hope your having a beautiful week stunner

  28. OMG, the Kate Spade perfume sounds like an absolute nightmare! I am very curious about Miu Miu's perfume because one of the notes is Star anise, that should be really interesting.

Chanel Le Blanc Light Creator Brightening Makeup Base SPF 40 Sunscreen review

Happy Wednesday lovelies, After a little breack I'm back to blogging and I want to show you guys this Chanel Le Blanc Light Creator Brightening Makeup Base SPF 40 .
You may remember I was so disapointed with Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (you can read about it __ Here) and I'm so happy I found one that I can  at least, use. It's probably not the best primer on the market but with the proper foundation it can work . The label claims:
"Now enriched with SPF 40, this lightweight, oil-free formula enhances radiance and extends the wear of foundation for an all-day rosy glow. A new yellow-based shade, Mimosa, provides sheer coverage to help visibly correct the appearance of shadows and unevenness."
