June Jacobs Better Love Naturel Eau de Parfum ($90.00)

For 2008, June Jacobs wants to go eco-friendly, and they reformulated their Better Love scent to be more “Naturel.” I hate to say it, but I would never wear this scent. I found it cloying, overly smoky with a heady mix of nutmeg, and just not something I would see myself wearing. I put it to the boyfriend-sniff-test, which evoked a response of, “It smells like old lady.” Since I’m 21, that is mostly definitely NOT the fragrance I want to keep on my shelves! Best part about it? The packaging is simple and elegant. Unfortunately, the scent just isn’t for me, but I would love to hear your thoughts on it if you’ve had the chance to check it out!

Notes include: Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin, Rose, Jasmine, Pink Pepper, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cream, Cedar, Musk, and Amber.

SCENARIO: I can’t afford to get a manicure/pedicure at a salon often–maybe once or twice a year–so how can I do it myself? It seems like my polish is all over the place when I do it, and it never stays on for very long!

Temptalia Asks You

How many lipsticks do you own? Not gloss, lacquers, chapsticks–lipsticks only!

I’m too lazy to do an actual count at the moment, but my guesstimate is around 60!
