Essence Blossoms Etc...

I was in ULTA today perusing around and trying to come up with an item to use my 20% off coupon on and also get 5x the points on and found this: Essence Blossoms etc...

As many of you likely know, the German brand Essence made its way into the US and specifically ULTA stores. The price point is pretty nice. Most products are in the $1-$4 range and their limited edition collections occasionally reach US shores.

I admit, the thought of Essence making a decent scent didn't seem likely but I gave this a spray and then walked around the store while it settled.

I'm not the biggest fan of floral scents, but this doesn't give me a headache and reminded me of something but I couldn't quite place my finger on while in the store.

When I got home, I sniffed quite a few fragrance, Viva La Juicy being one of them and while it's not a dupe, it is very close. And a shocking revelation, my husband actually liked this!
Blossoms etc. is pretty sweet and slightly fruity but has quite a strong violet note to it. I also smell something almost fizzy like it was spiked with fruity Champagne. It has a very slight powdery notes but manages to stay pretty nice and fresh. And whatever floral note gives me a headache, this one doesn't. I have both this and Viva La Juicy on my arm and they meld together very nicely and I think it'll be fantastic layered with vanillas.
And it's only $9.99, $8 with my 20% off coupon.

Another plus, I find the packaging, box, bottle etc. absolutely adorable.
