because perfume always makes things better

it’s official. i’ve found the best perfume ever. from J. Crew, no less. i’m telling you, this stuff smells GOOD. i was in there the other day on a whim and picked up the tester and my life was changed. okay, maybe that’s a bit of an over-dramatization but i really was happy to find a new perfume that i love.

if you’re in the market for a new perfume, give this stuff a shot.

or if you just happen to be walking by a j. crew sometime, you should stop in and give it a sniff. which, let’s face it, would be ideal.

    Same thing happened to me at Anthro! Love at first sniff with Florence by Tocca. Unfortunately $63 was not so lovely. Will have to settle for stop-by sniffs.

    That brand is amazing! Sephora carries a whole line of body products and there are actually THREE perfumes in the line. That one I think is my favorite!
