First impressions- DKNY Golden Delicious

Hello everyone, I have for you another perfume first impression, this one is going to be for DKNY's Golden Delicious. Now this is a different kind of scent, as you could probably could tell by the name and the bottle, this is a fresh fruity smell, but it's very subtle. It's a nice change from all the fruity scents that give you the impression you just opened a bottle juice at the grocery store.
Notes:.Orange Flower Water, Mirabelle, Golden Delicious Apple, White Rose, Casablanca Lily, Vanilla Orchid, Muguet, Musk, Sandalwood, and Teakwood
Style:Sophisticated. Glamorous. Radiant.

First impression- pure DKNY vanilla

Hello! I hope everyone is having a good week, I have for you another perfume first impression, this one is for another DKNY fragrance, this is a little tricky because I could have sworn the packaging said pureDKNY Vanilla, but when I look for more information on this product, it comes up as just "pureDKNY" So, I'm going to just call it as it was called on the sample packaging. I will be honest, in my mind I already wanted to hate this perfume just because it said vanilla. It's very hard for me to find a vanilla scent that doesn't overpower all the note in fragrances. So, when I first took a whiff of this, I was extremely surprised and shocked. It's a very subtle flowery vanilla scent the style for this fragrance :Simple. Calm. Authentic, which I could agree with, it's very laid back, not in your face.
The notes for this are:Vanilla, Dew-Drop Petal, Lotus Flower, Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine, Freesia, Lush Orchid, White Amber, Creamy Sandalwood.

I could see myself wearing this perfume, the scents seems like something I would enjoy wearing and the bottle could look good on any table or bathroom counter. You can find this perfume at Sephora and and a 1.0 oz bottle of this will run you 45$. I hope this was helpful, if you have any questions, please leave them in a comment below and I will answer them as quickly possible.
Thanks for reading!

First impression- pureDKNY verbena

Hello ladies and Gents :)
I have another perfume first impression for you! This one is for pureDKNY Verbena by DKNY. This is the first time I have tried any of DKNY's perfumes, so I didn't high expectations but I also didn't expect this to smell like it did. First thing that came to mind when I took whiff: leaves and flowers. The description of style for this fragrance was: Fresh. Bright. Sophisticated. I don't know about the sophisticated part, but it does smell fresh and bright. Makes me think of wide open meadows on spring day.
The notes for this are: Verbena(Of course), Honeysuckle, Peony, Jasmine Petals, White Amber, Sea Moss and Veiter

 As you can tell by the bottle, it's not too flashy but not too dull either. It's classy and elegant and would go nice on anyone bathroom counter or vanity table. A nice 1.0 oz bottle of this will run you 45$ dollars at sephora and You could also find this any place that sells fragrances, if there any questions that I didn't answer here, leave it a comment below and I will answer it to the best of my ability.
Thanks for reading!

First Impression- Sensuous Nude by Estee Lauder

I received this sample of Sensuous Nude with my Ulta order, but for some when I think of Estee Lauder, I think of it as an "old lady" brand of make up, but their products don't look like that. I swatched their cream eyeshadows when I was at Macy's sometime ago and fell in love their products. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that both my grandmother and mother use their products, would be something that would steer me away from this brand(Please excuse my closed-mindedness, I'm really working on it ):). But after swatching some if their products before trying this perfume, gave me an open mind. So with that, I decided to give it a chance, when I first tried this perfume, these were the first things that came to mind: flowery and incense. It felt like I was smelling a incense stick with no smoky smell, I also sensed a subtle musky scent and also a baby powder after smell.

For those who look for favorite notes, the notes are: Woods, Musky, Muguet, Sicilian Bergamot and Baie Rose

To me this something that I would enjoy wearing everyday, it's not to over powering that it would give me a headache(which I get easily from people who walk by me with either too much perfume or Cologne on) But it's not to subtle that I wouldn't tell that it's on. The bottle is simple, very elegant, it would go very well with almost every style that you could have on you vanity. A 1 oz bottle of this would cost you 52$ at Ulta and they are always having sales, so you could get a great deal for it. I hope this was helpful!
