REVIEW :: Pink Cherry Blossom Perfume from ETUDE House

715

So from my recent ETUDE House haul I got the Pink Cherry Blossom Set. Came with their Play 101 pencils in very pretty colors, hand cream, all over spray and this Eau De Toilette. I really love sweet feminine perfumes and I thought this would be a nice one to try out. The set was inexpensive, and it came with so much that if I didn’t end up liking this I wouldn’t feel bad.

It has notes of Violet, Cherry, Cherry Blossom, Musk and is very very sweet.

First Impressions

When first sprayed out of the bottle this is VERY sweet. Almost sickeningly sweet. And a little goes a long way. One spritz was enough for me to get on my wrists and dab on my neck. Immediately the sweetness mellows out and you get a hint of musk. This exchange of notes right away is really very nice. It is a very candy sweet scent, but the way the notes are playing together it doesn’t feel juvenile (we all know this super sweet perfumes we had when we were 7) I wouldn’t say this is mature, but it  is very playful. The notes go really well together, it is very fresh, sweet and pleasant. And the little hint of musk makes it come together very nicely.

Long Wear Impressions

After wearing this for about 3 hours you have to reapply. This may because I live in a very humid environment, but it is something to consider. It doesn’t immediately dissipate but it is something you would want to reapply if you wanted to smell like this all day. The notes the longer you wear it get lighter and sweeter. You lose a lot of the musk, and get more violet the longer you wear. But it is still very playful, pleasant and nice.

Overall Impression

If you LOVE sweet perfumes this is definitely one to try! Its not an overpowering sweetness, but a very bright and playful sweetness, and the floral and musk in it make it very nice. It does go on very heavy at first, and it doesn’t stay on the body to long. But overall I think it is something very sweet, and special and would work well for most ages, especially if you like very sweet and floral perfumes. Plus the bottle is cute to boot!

Grade- B + (would have been an A if it had lasted longer)

Unboxing – My Kashoen Brush set from Tatcha

Ok ok, I think its safe to say I positively adore Tatcha products. I also LOVE makeup brushes and cleansing brushes. So when I learned about this limited edition set from Tatcha that features a Kashoen cleansing brush I was so there!

For those of you unfamiliar with Kashoen brushes, they are handmade brushes from Japan, that have been being made since 1883. Their brushes are divine, and I got to feel one (my friend has one) and i have been dying for a few ever since. I could go on and on about them and their brushes, but you can visit their site to learn more. I had ordered a few from Japan (just a small order) and I wanted to get an additional cleanser because I heard they are also perfect for loose powder. so when I saw this set from Tatcha I was so excited!

I also ordered a travel size of their Dewy Mist because I wanted to try it out, and they also sent me a freebie of their rice enzyme powder, which is amazing for cleansing (and perfect use for this brush!)

I love getting their packages because everything is so pretty. They put this pretty purple tape on the outside, so I always know which package is theirs!

Their invoices are always so beautiful. They print it on beautiful rice paper.

Another nice touch, a handwritten thank you letter on the bottom of every invoice. ❤

So excited to try this out! I threw it straight into my purse!

I also got some samples too. One of the Indigo recovery cream. I like having samples of this because they are perfect for travel. Especially if I am only going out of town for 2-3 days. A sample lasts me that long. I also got their eye cream, and cleansing oil.

OK onto the Brush set! They call it Polished, and I think it is such an appropriate name!

OK first, excuse my messy kitchen counter, but if I tried to unbox this anywhere else my cats would get in the way….remember the last time. Also here is a picture of the instructions, and that tiny little hand knotted package is the brush. How beautiful!!!!

Also did I mention how nice the box is, its so nice!

OMG you guys, this is the prettiest, sweetest, softest brush! I can’t wait to use her! Those Bristles are like the soft belly hair of kitten angels!

The Lacquered bowl. This is made to be used with the Rice cleanser, which is so fun they made this set for that!

And Finally…….

The set put together. How PRETTY!! I am in absolute LOVE!!

I need to clean off a space on my counter, so for right now I put it back in its sturdy box, but I should have this set up in the next few days!

I am so in love! I will write a proper review once I really get to using this brush. And I can’t wait for my other brushes to arrive as well!
