"I'm Not Ready to Make Nice"

Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries Bare Skin


Oh, how I wish we had smell-o-pc, so you could smell how wonderful this fragrance is.

I love scents. Whether it be candles, perfumes, room sprays, linen fresheners, baked goods, fresh bread or cookies, even laundry detergent, and fabric softener. I.Love.Scents.

I was sent samples of Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries – Bare Skin, and while wearing it … I feel …. pretty, romantic, lady like. (hush up WinterWitch)
Many women proclaim a love, a passion for shoes, or purses. My passion’s are socks, and scents! And the scent isn’t coming from the socks.
This is not an overwhelming fragrance, to me it’s just the right amount. I have even allowed my tween to wear it. It’s just not overbearing, and is certainly suitable for those of all ages.

Created exclusively for Sephora
Top: No clock in sight and no reason to wake up. (Black Pepper, Freesia, Anise)
Middle Hot, hot hopping to the towel on sand. (Iris, Vanilla, Orchid, Plumeria, Patchouli)
Bottom: Finally, time to mingle, baring amber shoulders still warm from the day (Sandalwood, Labdanum, Musk).
Style: Romantic. Warm. Spontaneous.

Bare Skin, the first scent in the series, is reminiscent of an experience during a trip to Mexico, where Leslie cart-wheeled fancy-free down a sunny beach while emanating true, unbridled joy. “When I have an experience, I like to have a scent behind it. Bare Skin, which is what Mexico reminds me of, is the way you feel when the sun is beating down on you during the day, but then you go out at night and you’re still sizzling from the warmth of the day which mingles with the night air and the music.”

“Glowing, sun-kissed skin has the power to turn heads. I wanted to recreate that attractive force with notes that draw you in: creamy sensuality, caressing florals and uninhibited musk,” says Stephen Nilsen, the celebrated Givaudan perfumer who helped concoct Bare Skin. “With Bare Skin, you will find yourself basking in the sun, with your feet in the sand, after one spritz.”

Thank you to Catherine of the PR Company, Leslie Blodgett, and Sephora for allowing me to review samples of Bare Skin. I was not paid any monetary compensation for this review. This post is my opinion and should be taken as just that. Having received samples has no impact on my personal use, experience, or like for any product.

The Cream Perfume Company – Eco Chic – Review & Giveaway Ends 10/22/2009, 10/23/2009, 10/24/2009


So the mailman comes with a small but heavy box and right away my first reaction is to grab a knife and open it.  To my surprise it has lotion and perfumes from The Cream Perfume Company.  SWEET!  By now I’m giddy with excitment and can’t get the seals off fast enough.


The Cream Perfume Company has a great selection of solid perfumes and I got to try quite a few out, (psst! they are organic).  My favorite is Mimosa Bouquet.  I love floral scents and this tickled my senses.  I like solid perfumes in general and they are usually hard to find.  These are like no other I’ve tried.  They are nice and smooth and easy to apply just a bit so it’s not over powering.


They have 10 great scents:

  • Apricot Chypre
  • Mango Poudre
  • Melon d’eau
  • Mimosa Bouquet
  • Organic Forrest terre
  • Organic Lavender ecume
  • Organic Raspberry des champs
  • Organic Rose de rosee
  • Organic Vanilaa reve
  • Ylang Ylang d’amore

I also got to try their body moisturizers.  With scents of Coconut, Lavender, and Rose they are all favorites!  They are smooth and not greasy.  The scents are calming and not over powering.  I washed my hands and the scent was still on my skin leading me to believe it is still doing its job as a moisturizer.


The Cream Perfume Company
is internationaly renowned and offers free shipping to the US & Canada.  They have been featured in the magazine Fashion.  Their perfumed bodymoisturizers are 100% vegan, wheat and gluten free, contain no glycol, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, synthetic additives or synthetic fragrances.
