Crabtree and Evelyn Starlights
As I move into stage 2 of the cheering up process, I cave to the glitter. Last December at Crabtree and Evelyn, I first noticed Starlights. Starlights was their limited edition Eau de Toilette fragrance, the sales associate also directed me toward the Starlights shower gel and lotion but those had different notes from the Eau de Toilette.
Starlights is described in a press release as: Twinkle Twinkle. Dress your skin in a veil of fragrant, soft sparkle with Starlights Eau De Toilette. The limited edition fragrance is a delicious blend of French vanilla, white chocolate and butter cream topped with seductive notes of white musk. One whiff and he will be salivating.
The lotion in the shower gel and lotion however contained lavender. Starlights smells sweet but like a burnt sort of sweet, think Creme Brulee with a light hint of musk. It's a subtle scent and can be easily masked by something much stronger if necessary as it sounds much better than it smells.
The glitter in the bottle sits on the bottom and you have to shake it before spraying. It's a very fine gold glitter which clings to your skin, you can't really tell that it's there unless the light hits it so I only sprayed it on the skin that was exposed.
The Glitz line is created by Soular Therapy and they make other sprays in other glitter colors which is apparently unscented. Apparently, Starlights wasn't limited to only Crabtree and Evelyn as Maiden American Style
was also selling it for $15. It's a kitchy, fun fragrance that is more suitable for evening use that daytime. I don't care for the fragrance much so I'm happy when it fades away after about an hour.
Starlights retailed for $20/2 oz. at Crabtree & Evelyn. Both the Holiday Glitz and other Glitz sprays retail for $15 on up/2 oz. and can be found at: Sesto Senso
