REVIEW: MOSCHINO Pink Fresh – A Fruity & Floral Fragrance for every girl


Last year, I put a bottle of MOSCHINO Fresh Eau De Toilette (Blue) on my shelf for display because it was too cute to be emptied! This year, this summer, MOSCHINO Pink Fresh was gifted to me again. YAYYY! What a cute set of fragrance on display! Aren’t we a fan of MOSCHINO’s accessories and perfume bottles?!

This time round…..


100% Fresh!

100% Pink!

MOSCHINO PINK FRESH COUTURE is the new floral fragrance that every girl must have. It is MOSCHINO’s interpretation of the original Fresh perfume – sparkling and feminine notes suited for the everyday lady who wants to have fun. Because of the fruits found at the different notes, be sure to expect a tinge of fun with the scent of the fruits!

Head notes – Pink grapefruit, Casis, Lily of the Valley
Heart notes – Pomegranate, Wild Rose, Pink Jacinth
Base notes – Cedar Wood, Ambrox, Musk

A lot of you may thought that all you have to do is to press the spray lever…. But the actual fact is… You will have to open the cap and spray it like the other fragrances out there. You wouldn’t want to spoil the lever by pressing on it too often because I bet you will keep the bottle after emptying the fragrance! Hehe.

I hope the bottle has brought a smile on your face. You can get MOSCHINO Pink Fresh at Metro Paragon – 290 Orchard Road Singapore 238859.

BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme by Hugo Boss

Know what? I think I just found my favorite scent of the year. Even the boyfriend loves it on me. I am a very fussy person when it comes to scent because it is something I use almost everyday. I never liked anything too musky or overpowering.

When I first heard about BOSS MA VIE, the new fragrance for women from BOSS Parfums, I thought that it is going to be quite musky because BOSS can be quite manly. But then again, I gotta admit that I am quite a sucker for designs and I love how exactly the bottle look, I feel like…… I really want to own one. I like the delicate mellow pink and the sleek design.

Following the successful launch of BOSS NUIT Pour Femme and BOSS JOUR Pour Femme, now, BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme completes the trio. ALL of them look so elegant and classy.

The new fragrance was inspired by an element of the BOSS woman’s life that until now has gone unnoticed. It draws on the pleasure she feels when she chooses to step out of her day to day routine, slow down, loosen up and simply enjoy a moment for herself. It captures the intimate essence of her independent spirit, releasing the indulgent and fulfilling sensation of simply savoring life.

Yeap, so on days where I have no work, or after working hours, BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme allows me to be who I am comfortably and still smelling nice even after a long day of work. It somewhat boosts my confidence too.

Other than counting on the design of the bottle for modern femininity, the top note – Cactus Blossom accord capture the green freshness of the uncompromising desert plant, providing a unique and modern element to the fragrance.

The heart – Pink Floral Bouquet with Rose Bud unifies the key florals of BOSS NUIT Pour Femme and BOSS JOUR Pour Femme, with a tender and soft pink feminine twist. Suave pink freesia and jasmine petals were blended with delicate rose bud, creating a natural floralcy.

The base – Cedarwood – The intense warmth of sheer woods and cedar wood form is known to encourage an attitude of confidence and ease which inspires the BOSS woman to take a moment to herself.

Such femininity, confidence and modernity is simply irresistible.

Go on… You know you need it too 🙂

Especially Escada Elixir

I am currently still using Especially Escada which I had previously reviewed it in June.

Click here to read the review.This time round, they had kindly sent me the new intense Eau de Parfum – Especially Escada Elixir.

The difference between the two is the intensity. I had always preferred the intense version, the same for other perfumes as well.

This rose-based fragrance is an exciting new addition to the Especially ESCADA collection.

The design of the bottle is very much similiar to Especially Escada with an iconic double EE logo, originally designed by ESCADA founder. The lid features an especially opulent luster thanks to real gold in its finish making.

Well, we really have to agree that gold makes things look even classier than ever.

Eastern roses from Turkey was added as an element of mystery to Elixir. Rich natural rose extract is caressed with oriental facets to add depth, color and density. The unique fusion of ingredients also creates a fragrance that is elegantly joyful, while sensual and magical – with an intensity that lasts longer.

I work 8 hours a day and could still smell the scent of the perfume on me after work. It keeps me feeling fresh and nice. When I smell nice, my mood also gets lifted up somehow even if its after a long tiring day.

The first impression of my first spray – Sweet. It gave me the feel of how summer should be like with a tinge of vanilla. As the scent starts to spread, the scent of Turkish rose starts to grows onto me.

Let me summarize the fragrance notes for you:

Top notes: Pear, Ambrette Seed, Grapefruit
Heart Notes: Turkish rose absolute, Ylang-ylang, Plum, Prune
Base Notes: Patchouli, White musk, Amber, Cashmere, Madagascan Vanilla.

The heroine of the campaign, Bar, commented: “I adore the ESPECIALLY ESCADA fragrances as they are based on my favourite flower, the rose, and are all delicate and feminine, elegant yet youthful. There’s one for every occasion: a classic daytime Eau de Parfum I take everywhere with me; the fresh and light Delicate notes which is ideal for a hot summer day; and now Elixir is perfect for an evening when you’re getting ready to go out and want to have an extra touch of rosy feeling!”

For me, I’ll summarize Especially Escada in 2 words: 

Beautifully Blended.

Maybe you would love the scent as much as me too.

Especially Escada

Have you heard of the new fragrance I am using yet? It’s Especially Escada – a luxurious and feminine scent inspired by the spirit of todays joyful, spontaneous and glamorous woman who likes to let her emotions run wild.

This unique scent was already launched in Aug 2011 and will be a permanent addition to Escada’s sophisticated range of classic fragrances.

The packaging is a luxury yet striking design. Can you spot the 2 E right in the middle?

The solid, square glass flacon houses a rosy pink fragrance juice which is sealed within using classic, iconic double E logo gold-finish lid.

It gives an elegant but with a touch of playful femininity.

People who love the scent of flowers like roses would definitely love this for this scent is built around a delicate rose accord.

Inspired by the glistening scent of morning dew on a sparkling rose, Especially Escada says luxury but in a modern and light-hearted way.

The fragrance opens with an intense and sparkling top note of pear that combines with the sweet, exotic and musky notes of Ambrette seeds. Together, they unfold the joyous femininity in you.

One of the most luxurious rose species, the Bulgarian rose is uniquely collected in the early hours of the morning to best capture its sophisticated and classic aroma.

Delicate notes of Ylang Ylang work with the rose to create a soft, floral and intensely feminine appeal. The floral bouquet at the heart radiates a fresh and natural aura of positivity, the uplifting ingredients are
synonymous with joy unfolding.

If you want it short, this fragrance gives you femininity and at the same time, sophistication.

It’s a complicated affair.

Bar Refaeli is the new face for this the new scent. It strikes the perfect balance between elegance and high-energy glamour.

And her take on the scent:

“I absolutely love it. It’s not too sweet and it doesn’t feel too heavy. It smells really feminine and soft but still elegant. It has this really unique and rare rose inside it, the Bulgarian rose, it’s very hard to collect and you can really sense that because it smells absolutely beautiful.”

My take:

“I like it as it is not overpowering as you know some floral scent can get really over so it is suitable for any shopping day out, work or dinner. But I guess the main thing which attracted me was it’s really classic packaging and bottle!”

As it is Eau de Parfum, it is more lasting than Eau de Toilette.

So you can expect it to stay with you for the entire day.

How do you apply your Parfum?

For me, I prefer to rub it around my neck area and a few spray on my clothes.

Thank you for sending me this fragrance. I am so glad I have more choices now! 🙂

Crabtree and Evelyn; Somerset Meadow

This light green, fruity-floral scent of Somerset Meadow is an aromatic impression of a beautiful English landscape in bloom.

The products are really as pretty as they look in reality.

Likewise for the scent, sparkling bergamot and dew-kissed blackberry buds are refreshing and tart. Its juicy sweetness perfectly balanced with the bitter greens of ivy and fern. A heart of white blossoms, water lily and earth geranium flourishes as if warmed by the morning sun. The scent of leaf, grass and fragrant petals are suffused by creamy clouds of musk, whilst willow and moss tether.
