Celebrate The Royal Wedding With Some Seriously Romantic Perfumes

The ladies at TheGloss are fragrance junkies. They are also, at this point in the day, extremely enthusiastic to cover a topic not specifically about the Royal Wedding. So, needing to curate a shopping guide but done with looking at lace dresses for a few weeks (/months), we rounded  up a handful of our favorite romantic designer perfumes.

An Open Letter to Sammi Sweetheart Concerning Her New Perfume Launch

An Open Letter to Sammi Sweetheart Concerning Her New Perfume Launch

Dear Sammi,

I am just going to call you Sammi, aight? I mean, this whole Sweetheart thing is a total lie. Plus, if Snooki can be Nicole now, you’re not too good to use your real name. So, Samantha, you must be pissed that the other people from your show have way more endorsement deals than you.

Every girl in my high school selected ‘her’ Bath and Body Works fragrance and wore it constantly in body spray, lotion, and bath gel form. The locker room smelled like a basket of wax fruit every day after gym class. But I just couldn’t settle on which scent was going to be mine: I didn’t want to smell like a country apple or a sun-ripened raspberry, as much as I would have enjoyed eating either of those things. Ultimately, it was a men’s scent that drew me in: cool spring, which smelled like musk and rainwater. The woman at the counter asked me if I was getting a gift for my boyfriend, and, feeling ashamed, I said yes. But I loved every drop of the scent and wore it until I couldn’t squeeze any more out of the bottle. Since then, it has been men’s – and the occasional unisex – fragrances all the way. Recently, I got my hands on a sample of Calvin Klein’s Eternity Aqua for Men, and I’ve sported it every day since then. More »
