Favorite Fragrances of 2015!

Hi Makeup Maniacs!  I'm sorry I've been Missing In Action from the blog scene.  With holiday shopping and preparing for Christmas, it has been a very busy season for me.

Since this year is almost over, I wanted to point out a few of my favorite fragrances for 2015.  I've been enjoying these and wanted to hear your thoughts on them too.  So without futher ado, lets's start with...

Unconditional Love

This is a wonderful scent by Philosophy. It's sweet, but not overwhelmingly sweet.  It has floral hints, and is both comforting and feminine.

Noir Tease

This is a sexy scent sold by Victoria's Secret.  It's perfect for date nights, because it is flirty and fun.  It has hints of pear and vanilla, which I love.

Sofia by Sofia Vergara

You can actually pick this scent up at Walmart or at a drugtore, but it is so warm and exquisite. There are hints of blackberries and plum that make it so inviting.   

If you have tried these fragrances, please let me know what you think of them in the comments section.  Also, let me know what your favorite scents for 2015 were.  

"Til next time...
