  2. Heiress by Paris Hilton
  3. Happy by Clinique
  4. Touch of Pink by Lacoste
  5. Cool Water Game by Davidoff
  6. Envy Me by Gucci
  7. Rush 2 by Gucci
  8. Paul & Joe Blanc
  9. Adidas Energy
  10. Beautiful Love by Estee Lauder (thanks Gracie)

I alternate fragrances base on my mood :)
What's your scent?
Have a wonderful week ahead!
Stay sweet smelling!
Stay Happy!


  1. wow I am full and your food pics still makes me hungry!!!
    wow so delicious looking. I'm going to be dreaming about this tonight! hehe

  2. I remember our fragrance talk from the early posts. :)

    At the moment, I rotate between three scents: Clinique Happy to Be, Elizabeth Arden Green Tea, and Bulgari Eau Parfumée au thé vert. I really like the EA one and I always get compliments when wearing it, so I'm thinking about getting another bottle as the one I'm using is running low. I'm also interested in Clinique Happy Heart - if only I can find it for a bit less!

  3. Kasumi, lol good night..sleep tight and eat a lot in your dreams :D

    Liz, yeah! I remembered we had a good chat about it!!! Hmm...Elizabeth Arden Green Tea, everyone's loving it, I don't know why I haven't given it a try, I am still stuck with Elizabeth Arden's True Love (though its not made anymore). You are a CLinique Fragrance Girl! :)

  4. yummm the beef asparagus looks so so yum! i love asparagus with beef <3

    i love gucci rush too! hmm my collection is not as huge as yours..maybe 5 or 6 bottles

  5. MmmM. I'm going to eat right now! lol. I've been using heiress's so fun and girly! Nice collection!

  6. yumm!!
    by the way, have you tried dining at omakase? it's a good japanese restaurant at morato. though i think they have a branch at libis and alabang...try it sis!

  7. Prettybeautiful, I love asparagus too! we're not only the same with polishes, with food too!!! Gucci Envy me is my ultimate fave! I have to purchase again as I'm almost done with it, it's my 3rd bottle if I'll repurchase! 5-6 bottles are good enough! You have a lot too!

    Ladystarr, heiress is the only scent from Paris Hilton that I love :)

    Reynakatarayan, yes sis! I've dined at Omakase both LIbis and Tomas Morato branch :) I love their dynamite roll!!! The best!

  12. I had some samples of LACOSTE Touch Of Pink, and think it's a very fresh and young fragrance.

    I liked it, but didn't purchase it, since I think it doesn't suit me perfectly, hehe... I can be quite picky when it comes to perfume. :p
