The Fragrance Outlet

*Powered by Brandbacker and The Fragrance Outlet. My opinion is my own*



Founded in 1990, The Fragrance Outlet, Inc. owns and operates over 100 Fragrance Outlet and Designer Fragrances stores. Our first store, Fragrance Outlet, made its debut in November 1990 in Potomac Mills Mall, just outside of Washington, D.C.

The concept for Fragrance Outlet was simple – offer the widest selection of genuine designer fragrances, sold by knowledgeable, friendly staff at affordable prices. The formula was foolproof, and the store was an overwhelming success. Throughout the next few years, Fragrance Outlet expanded its presence in the fragrance market, opening stores in the best Outlet Centers across the country and Guam. Fragrance Outlet, Inc. continues to grow with expansion plans exceeding 100 stores over the next several years.

Now, The Fragrance Outlet is prepared to build upon its successful foundation and provide our loyal customer base with an online venue for purchasing designer fragrances at affordable prices – without ever leaving the comfort of home. We’re bringing the Fragrance Outlet shopping experience right to your computer for the utmost convenience.

I received a sample of Bamboo by Franck Olivier and I absolutely love it. It is exactly the type of cologne I like. It is a beautiful floral, with fruity undertones. It isn’t overpowering, which is also very important to me. It is feminine and pretty, and makes me feel pretty when I wear it. Most importantly, the hubs LOVES it!

Bamboo for women is an exclusive fragrance sold by Fragrance Outlet which was launched by Franck Olivier in the year 2012, inspired by the bamboo plant, an Eastern symbol. This fragrance is available in glass flacons accompanied by a trendy bamboo relief stem, carrying light pink liquid that symbolizes freshness.

EXCLUSIVE FRAGRANCE available only at and in every Fragrance Outlet Store

  • Top notes: Blackcurrant, violet leaves, ivy
  • Middle notes: Lily, rose, ylang-ylang, freesia
  • Base notes: Musk, cedar and vetiver

Shopping on Fragrance could not be any easier! They carry tons of brands, including those you would find at pricier department stores. The site is easy to navigate. They have it broken down by sale items, Men’s, Women’s, and Brands. I prefer shopping by brand, because I usually know exactly what I am looking for. Some of the brands I noticed were Dior, Victor and Rolf, Dolce and Gabbana, Armani and even Gucci!

A large amount of the fragrances on the site are marked down as much as 50%, and you receive a 15% coupon just for signing up for their email list.

Shipping is super fast, and the fragrances come beautifully wrapped! Oh and did I mention shipping is free at $50? Yep. Free!

So if you’re looking for a convenient way to shop fragrances, and a site with a huge variety and is easy to navigate, Fragrance Outlet is an awesome choice!

Aquation Skincare- Review


*powered by Brandbacker and Aquation. My opinion is my own*


Aquation is a brand I hadn’t heard of until I got the opportunity to try it. I got to try three products, a cleanser, a light moisturizer and a deep moisturizer.

How did they work? Let’s check it out!


About the brand:


Powered by Hydro Balance™ our advanced dual phase technology delivers hydration and creates an invisible barrier to help prevent moisture loss while encapsulated actives penetrate deeply for long-lasting hydration.CZ9xifT1ScunNbPVIetK_AB16-13_Products_052616

Ceramides are naturally occurring lipids that make up your skin’s surface. They keep skin youthful and supple by reinforcing the skin’s natural barrier that protects against moisture loss. When ceramide levels are low, the result is dry, dull skin. Aquation utilizes three ceramides to maintain skin’s protective barrier for a naturally healthy and hydrated look.
Hyaluronic Acid (sodium hyaluronate) is a powerful humectant found in the outer layers of the skin. As we age our levels decline, leading to increased dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Aquation is enriched with hyaluronic acid to help restore skin’s natural water balance for increased hydration, suppleness and a youthful appearance.
Marine Algae (laminaria digitata extract) is an encapsulated active that allows for controlled release of moisture once inside the skin’s deeper layers, while jojoba esters and glycerin provide moisturization and help prevent moisture loss from the skin’s surface. The result is intense, long-lasting hydration for softer, smoother skin!

Gently cleanse away dirt, oil and makeup while infusing moisture—revealing fresh, soft skin. Our formula won’t over dry or strip your skin and is enriched with ceramides and hyaluronic acid to help maintain the skin barrier.  For use on face and body.

The cleanser I really enjoyed. It got my skin fresh and clean without making it feel tight or overly dry. It is a rather large bottle so it will last a long time.

The Daily Moisturizing lotion was also very nice. When used in small amount, in held up nicely in the Memphis heat and wasn’t too heavy on my skin. My face felt moisturized, comfortable, and nourished.

The Moisturizing Cream is a powerhouse. I couldn’t use it on my face because it is heavier, but on my rough heels and elbows, it was DIVINE.

Aside from the high quality of the line, I am very happy with the price point and the attainability of the products to people. Each of the products is priced at $8.96 and it is available at Walmart. It is so exciting and encouraging to me to see quality skincare at such affordable prices and at a store than just about anyone can access.

I absolutely LOVE PINCHme! It is probably one of the easiest ways on the internet to get free samples of quality items. My favorites are the cosmetics and the pet care samples. It is so nice to have cat or dog food samples on hand when you run out of food and can’t get to the store right away.

Chella Heated Eyelash Curler-Review

This was sent to me for review. My opinion is my own.


You may remember my review of the Chella Mascara a few weeks ago. I promised to show you the amazing lash curler in that review and I have it for you now!6c120707-7f30-4bc7-be66-389d8675b8d8

From the Chella website:

Say Goodbye to the crimping and pinching caused by traditional lash curlers. This sleek, safe, and gentle heating wand is essential to enhance the appearance of your lashes. Designed to be used after mascara application, this curler gently warms lashes to deliver long lasting curl. You can now achieve the maximum curl without damaging your eyelashes for a beautiful & polished look.

Designed to be used after mascara application, this curler gently warms lashes to deliver long-lasting curl. Simply switch on the curler (green light illuminates) and let it heat up for 20 seconds. For top lashes, place the heated comb under the lash line and carefully lift and hold lashes against the eyelid for up to ten seconds. Repeat up to three times or until you achieve the look you like. After switching off the curler, let the device cool for 30 seconds and clean by gently wiping with a moist cloth when necessary.

In the first photo, you can see my eyelashes basically stick straight out, and are pretty light. The left eye has on mascara and has not been curled. The right has no mascara and also has not been curled.



I curled the left lash in this photo, AFTER applying mascara. You can see that the lash curled SO nicely!



I absolutely HATE the pinch type eyelash curlers because my hand-eye coordination is terrible and I am constantly pinching myself. This one is SO easy to use! Let it heat for 20 seconds, then place it gently at the root of the lashes. pull the heater upwards, in a slight curling motion, and the combination of the heat on the mascara really gives your lashes shape and definition without pinching and poking!

I will warn you though- the tip of the curler does get hot and it will burn your fingers, if you touch it. (like I did)


This brilliant little gadget is available here for $22. Very reasonably priced for a product that works SO well and is so foolproof!


What do you think? Do you curl your lashes? Would you try this? Sound off in the comments below!
