About Katrina

I’ve got to confess that I was once a perfume snob. I didn’t have the money to buy a lot of designer fragrances and my perfume purchases were normally made at duty free stores when travelling. The few perfumes I owned were saved for wearing out somewhere special.

When I decided to give celebrity perfumes a try I was surprised by how good they were. I started with Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker but Fantasy by Britney Spears was the turning point for me with its flashy bottle and synthetic gourmand fragrance notes. Until this point I was into everything natural and organic. I was skeptical that a manufactured scent like cupcake accord could smell any good but I was proven wrong. Fantasy won me over with its cupcake accord and white chocolate orchid. It smells amazing, delicious, good enough to eat!

The celebrity factor combined with fragrance creates ‘scentertainment’. I love seeing how celebrity perfumes reflect the personality of the celebrity. The design of the packaging and the advertising used to promote the perfumes can be creative and entertaining. One celebrity perfume led to another and another and now here I am with my own celebrity perfume blog. There has been a proliferation of perfume blogs run by ‘perfumistas’ that cater for lovers of expensive designer and niche perfumes. Many of the ‘fumies’ that follow the blogs openly admit to being perfume snobs and turn their noses up at celebrity perfumes. This is a perfume snob free zone, I hope you stick around.

Why I love perfume

I like the way smells can affect our mood and conjure up images and memories.  

Smells can bring back childhood memories. The smell of the rain reminds me of watching a storm roll in. The smell of new plastic makes me think of Christmas morning. The sea air takes me back to beach holidays with my family. Some of my favourite smells as a child came from scratch and sniff stickers, scented erasers and paper.

The smells I appreciate have changed over the years. Now its all about cooking, gardening, food and wine. I love the smell of freshly baked muffins mmmm… cooking with spices, growing herbs in the garden and sipping herbal tea. I also practice aromatherapy and have a nice collection of essential oils. I scent my home with an oil burner, blend massage oils and put a few drops of lavender oil under my pillow to help me sleep.

As I review celebrity perfumes its exciting to recognise the hint of lavender, chocolate or star anise and my obsession keeps growing. I love talking perfume so keep in touch.
