NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Three Perfect Fragrances to Gift This Christmas

Following on from yesterdays last minute gift guide for those pesky people in your life that just have absolutely everything, today we're touching on last minute fragrance gifts. They're not bespoke or hard to come by fragrances and can be snapped up on a trip to most beauty halls.

MY BURBERRY

The first, and most festive, is the Limited Edition My Burberry fragrance which not only comes wrapped with a beautiful bow at the cap, but also doubles as a scented snow globe with it's gold glitter interior. A great one for those that like something floral but not too sweet.

Top Notes:
Sweet Pea and Bergamot
Heart:
Geranium, Golden Quince and Freesia
Base Notes:
Patchouli, Rain-tipped Damask and Centifolia Roses

BLACK OPIUM EDT

The second fragrance is a great one for those who love something that's both sweet and dark at the same time. It's the YSL Black Opium EDT - which makes it much lighter and more fruity than it's EDP counterpart, so a perfect day time fragrance for anyone who loves something a little darker.

Top Notes:
Blackcurrent Accord, Pear Accord, Green Mandarin Essence
Heart:
Jasmine Tea, Orange Blossom, Floral Solar Accord
Base Notes:
Coffee Accord, White Musks, Blond Woods

DESCENDANTS EDP

The final fragrance is a new one from Marc Jacobs, Descendants EDP. Those that love a sweet floral fragrance with a twist will absolutely love this one (especially if you're a fan of Parmavoilets because there's something very reminiscent of it in this)!

Top Notes:
Italian Plum, Iris, Saffron.
Heart:
Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine Sambac, Orris.
Base Notes:
Liquid Amber, Vertiver, Papyrus Woods.

  27. I am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for over 9 years and we had two kids. thing were going well with us and we where always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treated me and the kids. later that month he did not come back home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he casted on him that make him come back to me. my family and i are now happy again. Thank you Dr. Aluta for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact traditionalspellhospital@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. He cast spells for different purposes
