The Lipstick League - Week of 10.5.15


The Lipstick League Question of the Week

What's your go-to fragrance for fall? 

G's answer: I'm absolutely obsessed with this one right now. I've been wearing it all week (even though it's been in the 90s here in San Diego) and I know for a fact I'll continue to wear it through the fall, and winter too.

  1. I tend to gravitate mostly toward Chanel No. 5 in fall and winter. I just ordered some perfume oil samples from Etsy, though. I'm hoping to add some new scents to the rotation.

    1. You simply cannot go wrong with No. 5. Ever. ;)

  2. My favorite fragrance is the discontinued, 'In Love Again', by Yves Saint Laurent. Goodness, do I love this fragrance! It's a citrus (grapefruit) floral (rose). I have an original bottle (2004), and I think it's starting to turn, so I'm trying to use it up. I have a slightly newer bottle from the rerelease (I think in 2009), so that one is OK.

    1. Sadly, I don't recall ever sniffing that one (although I do know that many were bummed about its discontinuation!). But I adore rose blends. Your comment reminded me of a fragrance by the natural brand, ShiKai. They had an absolutely gorgeous Apricot Rose lotion and body wash, which I used for like five year straight. I'm STILL bummed they discontinued it a few years ago. Why? Why?!?! Lol!

    2. OMG - I remember that ShiKai apricot rose blend! It was DIVINE! I miss that, too! :(

  3. Right now I am obsessed with both Nirvana Black by Elizabeth and James and Spicebomb by Viktor Rolf (which I got for my husband but I keep stealing)

  4. I some times use an indie pumpkin pie scented body oil for fall. It's so yummy! If I don't wear it then I stay with my ever day year round Flower Bomb.

  5. Dune by Christian Dior! They discontinued it then brought it back. I have some from eBay though. There aren't too many perfumes that I like but this one is very special.

  6. For the fall and winter I use La Vie Est Belle Lancome but I try to use it lightly since the scent is a bit strong. I might add YSL Black Opium to the rotation.

  7. I'll wear Vera Wang Princess during the fall/winter months. Or Viva La Juicy.
