insolence by guerlain


from Sephora:
Notes:Spiral Accord, Iris (Orris), Orange Blossom, Rose, Violet, Sandalwood, White Musk, Tonka Bean, Raspberry.
Style:Young. Irreverent. Defiant.

So, I've fallen for Insolence due to the sales work by a certain Macy's SA. The same one that convinced me that lash curlers were worth a try after seeing his dazzling lashes. He didn't say too much that convinced me, just all of the body language and "you know what I'm saying?!" that tapped my senses and pushed Insolence to the top of my to-buy list-- soaring past Paris Hilton for men (yes, I'm so buying that for me), Versace Bright Crystal, JLo After Dark, Prada, the long awaited Donna Karan Gold (out of season now) and my beloved YSL Baby Doll.... haaaaaa... As much as I like this scent, I really want a head turner. I want to float past a guy and he stop and ask "What are you wearing?" I want to be magnetic on the dance floor because I smell that good....

Do you like Insolence? What's your head turning fragrance?

Yummy, I must go smell this! It sounds like a dream! I love Gucci II (in the pink square bottle) & my new favorite is Baby Phat Goddess.

Until today, I hadn't heard of it. I'm a sucker for a nice fragrance though so I definitely intend to give it a try.

I'm growing tired of my Hanae Mori....

Jessica McClintock and Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Spray layered on...I always get compliments and BBW Country Apple lotion and Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Shine layered together too.. Paula D.- I love Gucci II! I wore it Sunday and I have Gucci I, which think is discontinued.

@ms behaving.. yes do give it a try! i'll have to give hanae mori another chance and actually wear it and not just a quickie (sniffing the bottle try to determine if i like it or not)

@erika.. thanks!

@rebellebap..yummm thanks for the suggestions.. hawaiian ginger makes me hungry, sike lol. i have been meaning to try the incanto shine, because the mag inserts don't cut it!

Guerlain makes really complex and beautiful fragrances. I will have to give this one a whiff the next time I visit Macy's or Sephora. I've got a super sensitive sense of smell and I love collecting fragrances! My favorites these days fluctuate between: Laura Mercier Eau De Lune, Annick Goutal Des Lys, and D&G Light Blue (I wore this on my wedding day!). How was your long weekend, by the way? Do anything fun?

karen: i have to try your other fragrances, but D&G light blue are all too familiar as that's a fav fragrance of one of my sister's.

long weekend went okay. i didn't do all that i anticipated, but it came out okay. i finally visited one of the cco's in my area. it was okay, but i won't be going very often. sounds like you had a great time on the waves!
