Yummy411: Miss Dior Cherie, Fragrances at Sephora

I've been in love with Miss Dior Cherie since it debuted back in 2005. However, being a follower of my favorite perfume blog, NowSmellThis, I was swayed against it by the review as well as the more hefty price tag and had not bought it until recently. I knew I loved this scent. I know I'm in love when I want to go to bed with a scent-- wear it to bed people!! Hahahha!

According to Sephora: Notes:Green Tangerine, Violette, Pink Jasmine, Patchouli, Crystalline Musk, Strawberry Leaves, Caramelized Popcorn, Strawberry Sorbet.
Style:Pure. Precious. Modern.
Some of the notes actually scare you. Who wants to smell like strawberry leaves, sorbet and caramalized popcorn? An icecream shop? This fragrance though is deep enough, that it lends a sophisticated style, but fruity and sweet enough to be trendy and flirty. I love it! (Like I knew I would).

While I added this to my fragrance wardrobe (finally) and used Sephora online for some help, I fell in love with Sephora again (almost as much as the fragrance)!
Why?
The Fragrance Finder- gives you suggestions based on your favorite perfume or notes.
Ways to Shop- you can shop fragrance by best seller, weekly's best, what's new, see what's exclusively at Sephora (great way to find gift sets) and more!
Mini Fragrance- since I have more than enough perfume, I'd rather buy roll-ons, mini fragrances, and other portable solutions when I'm not buying gift sets. Sephora has a whole selection of these fragrances that other stores may not have! LOVE!
Have you purchase a fragrance lately that you love (for the summer)?

I love Miss Dior Cherie!!
it is one of my favorite perfumes!!
It is the cousin of Mademoiselle by Chanel

Sephora is great for fragrances and you rack up points as a beauty insider for that deluxe sample..hehehe..

Rolls-on are great because I've had my miss dior cherie perfume for 2 years now and i am not close to half...

I haven't purchase a new fragrance but Kenzo Amour summer edition IndianHoli was in my wishlist for a while. Before breaking the $65, i smelled the sample again and compared it to the original Kenzo Amour and I prefer the original..so i might skip it!
I wish it came in different sizes...
anyways, have a good sundy.

Sea Breeze (toner) is a classic and you can get it at Walgreen's or CVS (or Long's next time we're in LA!)

I love too Miss Dior Chérie, is a beautiful scent suitable for every stilish woman, i gave it to my granny birthday cause she fallen in love with my perfume some months ago.

Usually i have 3-4 perfumes in the same time, my favourite for spring and fall is Burberry London. For summer this year i bought "L'escale à Portofino" by Dior, is a fresh and classic scent with lemon, orange blossoms and white musk accords.
