This is the first installment of a new feature that I am adding to my blog. I am calling it Fragrance Fridays. I plan to spotlight my favorite fragrances, my recent additions and the ones that I would like to add to my collection. One gem about having a variety of fragrances is that no one will no what you will be wearing.
Spring is here, but there is still a bit of a chill in the air. I am loving this weather right now. Here in Missouri, we received a taste of the heat and humidity last week with temperatures topping out at 90 degrees. These crisp and cool days reaching only 55 degrees are a pleasure to me.
As the Winter days give way to Spring, I am changing my fragrance choices. I have loved perfume ever since I was a baby. In my baby book my mother wrote, “she loves the smell of flowery perfume.” I loved it then and love it now.
As Spring comes into full bloom, I am reaching for my lighter fragrances. I never want people to smell me before I enter the room. I know some people are sensitive to even the lightest of fragrance so I try to respect them. I love light florals because you smell the scent but they are not overpowering.
For example, M by Mariah smells so good to me and my body chemistry is a great match for the fragrance. I never thought that I would like a celebrity fragrance but I have to admit that some of her fragrance smell wonderful on me.
On the Elizabeth Arden site Mariah gives her inspiration for creating M by Mariah.
“For me, creating this scent was like creating a song – it takes many notes to compose a fragrance. It’s like a beautiful melody.” – Mariah Carey
Mariah’s signature scent opens with an indulgent, creamy accord and blooms into an opulent floral heart as a rich base reveals darker, sensual facets.
- A warm and inviting marshmallow is woven throughout the fragrance, evoking a sense of comfort. This indulgent accord captures Mariah’s fondest childhood memories of being in the kitchen with her father.
- The lush floral heart of the fragrance combines a feminine veil of Living Tahitian Tiare flower wrapped in the aura of wet Gardenia petals. This beautiful blend is reminiscent of the fragrant breezes of Hawaii and the Isle of Capri, Mariah’s favorite getaway.
- The soul of the fragrance reveals a sexier dimension. Sheer amber, infused with spicy, woody accents of Moroccan incense forms a seductive accord that embodies Mariah’s sensuality, beauty and glamour.

When I read this description above I thought to myself that this had a lot of punch for one scent. After I smelled the fragrance my hubby and I loved it. I smell the Tahitian flowers with a hint of chocolate and I feel like I am on a beach sitting in one of those blue ocean lounge chairs. This is one of my favorites in my perfume wardrobe and I have quite a few scents.
I do not layer with any other scents when I spray on M and it stands all by itself and is really not needed.
M by Mariah is a beautiful scent.
