Makeup Wars chooses favorite perfumes

Today for Makeup Wars Marcia and Lisa collaborated to bring you Lisa’s 5 favorite fragrances that have the scent of coconut in them. It might just be a small part of the fragrance but it’s enough to make Lisa happy as that’s her favorite scent. (When I write collaborated, I mean I made Lisa pick and tell me about the fragrances. She did the hard part, I’m just the facilitator. — Marcia)
1.  Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder – This is a beach sunset in a bottle, a little bit of suntan oil, a lot of warm sand, and the soft scent of flowers breezing past.
2.  Viva La Juicy Gold Couture –  This is a fruity fragrance with yummy coconut and vanilla notes. This is a new addition to the Juicy Couture family and has become a favorite to wear for Lisa.
3.  LaVanila Vanilla Summer – This is a totally tropical scent with pineapple, mango, coconut milk, sugar cane, and Madagascar vanilla.  It brings me right back to sipping a pina colada on the beach in Mexico.
4.  Lisa Hoffman Tuscan Fig Parfum – this is a combination of Vanilla Bean, Honeysuckle, Coconut Wood and Gardenia.  It’s a sophisticated coconut scent, and the fragrance jewelry is to die for.
5.  Opus Oils Tropique – Opus Oils has some intriguing fragrance and Tropique really has stood out. It’s an inspired mix of chocolate, vanilla, coconut and coffee.  Delicious!
Are you a fan of coconut in your fragrance? Does it transport you to an island or a favorite vacation where you got away from the world and your worries for a little time?

  8. What you said was very logical. But, think on this, suppose you were to write a killer headline?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a headline that makes people want more?
    I mean Makeup Wars chooses favorite perfumes is a little vanilla.
    You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they
    create article titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to
    grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
