Ralph Lauren Romance

Perfume review

I've never met a contest I didn't enter and last week, I finally won something! I've been following Dave Lackie editor in chief and found of BEAUTY The Guide a luxury beauty digital magazine, and frequent guest of CityLine as their beauty expert, for quite some time.

His beauty advice is also spot on and he is the man I turn to when I want to catch up on all the new trends in the world of beauty. On his website, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter pages he hosts weekly and sometimes daily giveaways. When I saw he was giving away a bottle of Ralph Lauren's Romance I immediately entered and crossed my fingers. This story has a happy ending because I won! He sent me the bottle, along with a cute notebook that I have already filled with to-do's and random ideas.

Romance RL

Romance is one of my favourite scents which is why I jumped at the contest. I have this old Romance ad permanently burned in my brain. Anyone else remember this ad campaign? I was so in love with the simplicity of it, and frankly I was so in love with her boots! Ha!

With notes of Sungoddess Rose, Marigold, Ginger, Chamomile Oil, Yellow Freesia, White Violet, Lotus Flower, Day Lily, Patchouli, Oakmoss, and Musk, it's a warm fragrance, while still being light enough to wear throughout the day. It's like a warm embrace from someone you love with a field of flowers behind them. It is an all season fragrance and works well both day and night.

I will admit that perfume is my weakness, I can remember every perfume I have every worn. It started with my first fragrance, Bob Mackie's Cher, which I begged my mom to get me when I was 8 years old. I was the best smelling tomboy on the baseball field! I remember moving onto Elizabeth Taylor's White Diamonds, CK One and Tommy Girl all before I even had my driver's license!

I always change my fragrance with the seasons. For summer17, Romance will be my everyday scent and I can't wait to create some new romantic memories while wearing it.
