Fashion and Beauty are a state of mind...

Coming Soon: Fragrance Fridays!

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.

M by Mariah

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.
    Description: Elizabeth Arden

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.

Check back on future Fridays for more posts on my fragrance collection and fab favorites.

      Hey Shareena,

      M by Mariah is a lovely scent.

    Ok, JT, now I have to go and check it out. I like perfume, but I have the worst allergies that most of them just ruin my day rather then smell it up. I remember working with a lady that I swore “bathed” in it. It was so over powering and I think she sprayed it in her hair too. I didn’t know what was worst the guy I had to sit next to that had bad breathe or her. LOL!

    Long story short, I have been using those body sprays that you can get at Target or Walmart and they don’t amount to anything past an hour. I will for sure go check our M and get back to you on this!

      Funny story Sonia, I can’t take those strong scents either. Please let me know what you think of the fragrance, you can sample it at any department counter. It’s the first one in her series of fragrances so it may not be that readily available.
