Happy International Fragrance Day!

It’s been a long time since I last posted, but I didn’t want to pass on International Fragrance Day, because fragrance is what I have been utterly infatuated with over the last year!

Our family only just returned from a mini-vacation in Montréal (well, a holiday with a two year-old and a four year-old is not really a holiday, is it?!) and of course I did pick up a new perfume. Gotta love the $19.99 perfume shelves at Shoppers Drug Marts—Pharmaprix in Québec—and Rexalls!

Today, I’m going to do a very quick ‘n’ dirty roundup of my 10 new favorite perfumes, and 10 favorite new blind buys that I’m most excited to try out.

  1. Hope you enjoyed Montreal!

    Today I’m wearing one of my favourite winter scents… MAC “Velvet Teddy”. On me it’s a warm honeyed vanilla tobacco scent and I really enjoy it 🙂

    • We did very much! I think we turned it into more of a foody trip than a sightseeing one, though. Hahaha! Pretty cold outside, and we just missed the Insectarium before it closed for a 2-yr renovation.

      I looooove Velvet Teddy! It’s perfect for this season.
