Smelling Good

I can't tell you the name of J'Lo's perfume or the latest scent by Usher because I really don't like perfumes. They are never light enough and I always seem to detect the scent of the alcohol used in the fragrance. I decided to go the natural route by purchasing a splash by Karen's Body Beautiful. Just like her hair products, her fragrances are available in many scents. I decided to try cranberry cocktail because I love the scent of my KBB hair milk in that scent. Sure enough that cranberry cocktail scent did not disappoint me although I did get a whiff of the alcohol included in the product. The SD alcohol is the second ingredient on the list so I'm not surprised that I can smell it in the product. The only issue that I really have is that this product doesn't last as long as I would like it to last on my clothes or skin. Overall this splash is a good effort from the KBB team. I could see myself purchasing another scent in the future.
Pearl by Carol's Daughter is a natural based fragrance too but a few squirts will last you alllllllll day long. Check my old review.
You can get an 8oz bottle for $14.00.

Ingredients: Purified Water, SD Alcohol, Aloe Vera, Fragrance and/or Essential Oils, Natural Enzymes

u just helped me realize why im not a huge fan of fragrance. it's that alcohol smell. i prefer to get my scents through lotions. i have a lot of body splashes and perfumes but they dont get too much use b/c i only wear them when going out. i have this fear of being the person in the club who stinks but im pretty sure those people just didnt bathe.

I was just on her website a few minutes ago! I have more body sprays than any one person should, so I'll resist the temptation to buy another.

When I was in my twenties I was the person who put on so much perfume it made everyone around me gag. And I had the nerve to keep even more in my purse for "touch-ups".

Nowadays, like Antithesis, I go for the lotions. Perfumes just seem so heavy.

Definitely going to check out KBB's stuff!!!!

You and I are in the same boat. I'm pretty much allergic to cologne, so I don't wear it.

I'm going to check this one out. Alcohol=boo hiss!
