Among all our senses, the sense of smell is the one we most strongly associate emotions with. Our olfactory sense can take us to a walk down the memory lane and it can also capture small moments in time that become the foundation of our future memories. I still feel like I am enveloped in the warm hug of my mom when I smell calamine lotion! I am not a big makeup person - I try to stick to my tried and tested skincare products as I have problem skin - for me, perfumes are my beauty essentials. Just a whiff of my favorite notes - from floral to vanilla to musk to fruits - and I feel better! A good perfume can make you feel sexier, more confident, happier and can lift up the spirits. I love big name perfumes because I can trust them to do their research and develop fragrances that are truly long lasting and amazing. But I hate to pay designer prices for them. I am regular Walmart shopper for my groceries and I have to say I never realized that they have great brands and celebrity perfumes in their beauty isle and the prices the lowest anywhere!! The other day I decided to check out their perfume isle and was so impressed by the selection and prices! I picked out Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift - the 1 oz bottle cost me less than $30!
This is an amazing fragrance that lasts whole day. The scent is floral with sparkling fruity tones on a wooden background. Top notes are raspberry, dewberry, green tea, freesia and apple blossom. The heart features sweet vanilla with honeysuckle and white hibiscus. Base notes of golden amber, musk, sandalwood and peach. The first spritz is very strong, but it mellows down after a little while and at least for me, the reaction with my skin was wonderful. I had put just a spritz on my wrists and on my neck and when I hugged my daughter, she said she want to snuggle with me for loooooooooooong time because I smell so good!' (What my husband said is not suitable to mention here as it is family friendly blog!;)
If you are looking for a new perfume, I suggest you try Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift. Walmart has a variety of big brands designer and celebrity perfumes on a really good budget that could be great options for Christmas gift ideas! Make your own pretty gift basket with a perfume bottle paired with your choice of hand and body creams!
