Wow, this day just keeps getting better and better! I’ve been waiting for this to happen for ages, and I know that Bare Escentuals/bareMinerals fans will likely be rejoicing and even hugging their annoying neighbors “just because” (okay, maybe not) now that Leslie Blodgett is releasing the first of several limited edition fragrances in her Perfume Diaries series! Bare Skin will be available exclusively at Sephora on 10/15, but… I was just poking around on the Sephora website out of curiosity and found it’s already up and currently available exclusively to Beauty Insiders (it only takes a few seconds and it’s free to sign up), if you’d like to snag it– now’s your chance! In all of my excitement, I almost forgot the most important part, the notes– top notes of black pepper, freesia, and anise with a vanilla orchid, iris, and plumeria middle sounds delish! The description I have describes a soft musk at the bottom– you know I don’t do too well with those typically, even I surprise myself every now and then! For some reason I have no doubt in my mind that Leslie selected this very carefully along with the perfumer, she’s highly involved in the research and development of all of the Bare Escentuals products and she knows what she’s doing, I would almost be surprised if I didn’t enjoy this when I try it. Bare Skin was inspired by Leslie’s experiences during a trip to Mexico, where she explained she “cart-wheeled fancy-free down a sunny beach while emanating true, unbridled joy.” Who wouldn’t love that feeling? Honestly!
“When I have an experience, I like to have a scent behind it. Bare Skin, which is what Mexico reminds me of, is the way you feel when the sun is beating down on you during the day, but then you go out at night and you’re still sizzling from the warmth of the day which mingles with the night air and the music.”
I can’t wait to see the next release in the series, bring it on Leslie! As soon as I have a chance to review this, I’ll be as quick as possible to post it!
