As some of you know, I don't wear "mainstream" fragrance. I prefer natural scents over chemical, and blend my own fragrance(s) from oils in the wood, resin and spice families. I have been "out" of 2 oils I use for many months.
Over the weekend, on a raid, through my daughter Amber's bathroom, for something to wear, I came across a bottle of Pacifica , Malibu Lemon Blossom. One air squirt...no "chemical" notes detected, I deemed the fragrance acceptable for a wrist test. Call me impressed! I am not a reviewer, yet I loved Malibu Lemon Blossom so much, I just had to share.
Aptly named, Malibu Lemon Blossom smells lemony and floral on a salty beach. I know, I know... salt does not have an odor, but it *is* there....conjured up from whatever it is that smells "beachy". This fragrance smells exactly like a beach babe after a lemony shower. ( "babe" for the lack of a better word.)
Malibu Lemon Blossom is an absolutely amazing blend of scents. Although very affordable at $22 (for a 1.2oz bottle), it does NOT smell cheap.
I wore this along with Malibu Lemon Blossom Body Lotion all weekend and had many compliments. Big bonus- this fragrance did not clash with my Lemony Flutter!
I just ordered the Beloved Woods and Coveted Spices Solid Perfume Gift Box, and can't wait to try them!!!
Pacifica products are 100% VEGAN and Gluten-free. No parabens, animal testing, animal ingredients or artificial colors.
Pacifica is also available at Sephora.
The other thing I wore all weekend was OPI, Coney Island Cotton Candy. <3!
To date, this is my absolute favorite of all the neutral/nude/flesh polishes I've tried thus far.
As you can see, I had some pooling at the cuticles, and at 2 coats vnl...I still love it bunches! The color is to die for- is it peach or pink?...how about both. Very cool that the color shows pink on my nail beds and peach at the tips! This is over my new set of acrylics (OPI, Absolute in natural).
IMO, Coney Island Cotton Candy is a jelly, and takes the #1 spot for shine. I did not feel the need for a top coat. Pictures taken after 4 days of wear.
I will be buying a couple of back-ups for sure.
