Christmas 2012: Fragrance Wishlist

The wish lists just keep coming folks! Since I moved to my new apartment near UNC, I’ve been loving fragrance. I wasn’t allowed to burn candles at Kenyon and my dad hates stinky things in his house so I haven’t had the chance to experiment with wonderful smelling candles and perfumes. Here’s a list of what I want to add to my collection soon:fragrance wishlist


1. Charles Dickens’ Library Candle : Candle + Library Scent + Badass Victorian Author = BEST candle ever. It’s homey, woodsy and makes me think of wood-panelled walls and cigars.

2. Chanel Coco Noir: Chanel’s newest fragrance is even more sensuous than No. 5 — need I say more?

3. Jo Malone Wild Fig & Cassis: This would be a good addition to my Jo Malone layering collection — fresh, fruity, with a little spice!

4. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle: I wear this perfume nearly every day and I love the scent so much it’d be perfect for my apartment! It’s spicy and just a little mysterious.

5. Vera Wang Princess: Though I generally prefer more oriental/masculine scents, this girly scent has quickly become a favorite. I received a sample at Nordstrom a few months ago and took it on a trip as an easy-to-pack fragrance. I don’t have a full-sized version of this scent yet and I think a rollerball would be the perfect in purse selection!

6. Winter Night Candle by Bath & Body Works: This fills the house with a fireside scent, perfect for those of us with a gas fireplace!

  1. It’s nice to see a positive reaction to Coco Noir. I reviewed it on my blog and liked it, though I wasn’t WOW’d by it. Still, it was greeted with such venom, revulsion and anger by a lot of hardcore perfume addicts that you would have thought Chanel had personally betrayed them. It’s a question of expectations, I think. Anyway, it’s nice to see someone feeling very positive about it. 🙂 BTW, I *love* Jo Malone and Slatkin candles!!

    1. Interesting. I haven’t had any negative reactions yet but I also haven’t been screaming my love from the rooftops (yet)!

  2. […] there was such a good response to my holiday beauty posts (here and here), I thought I’d start writing a few more posts dedicated to beauty. Lucky for me I received […]
