Leslie Blodgett Launches Perfume Diaries & GR Giveaway!

Today, Leslie Blodgett's new perfume, Bare Skin will hit shelves in Sephora. Leslie believes that scents are like memories and created a line of signature scents reminiscent of her favorite trips. The fragrance collection, Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries, is a limited edition collection available only at Sephora.

The first scent released, Bare Skin, is based on a favorite trip she took to Mexico. “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.”

So what does Bare Skin smell like? The top notes consist of Black Pepper, Freesia and Anise. The heart notes are Iris, Vanilla Orchid, Plumeria and Patchouli and the bottom notes are Sandalwood, Labdanum and Musk. The final effect? Leslie hopes you will feel as if you are basking in the sun of Mexico, enjoying your day and waiting with anticipation for the unforgettable night ahead.

I tend to wear scents like fresh air and clean cotton, so this might not be for the fresh and floral ladies, but if you like warmer, muskier, sexier scents, this may be for you! However, one of my favorite trips ever was to the Mayan Riviera in Mexico, so I am curious to see if it invokes memories of my trip - I can't wait to get my hands on this to find out.

Want to try it before you buy it? Leave a comment telling me your favorite vacation spot and you will be entered to win a sample of the perfume for yourself! Want to enter twice?

  1. My favorite vacation spot is Maui, Hawaii. I've gone there probably 10 times, and even was married there! I love it!

  2. My favorite vacation spot is Club Med in Cancun, Mexico! Beautiful blue skies, lots of sun and wonderful white sand beaches. Sounds like Leslie's new fragrance might evoke memories of our last vacation there this spring? Can't wait to try it!

  3. sounds like an amazing scent - i will have to check it out at Sephora next time. My favorite vacation spot is pretty much anywhere a cruise ship will take me.

    My favorite vacation spot was the past January when my family traveled to the gorgeous island of St. Lucia in the West Indies for my oldest daughter's beach wedding. Of course, part of the wonderful memory was the fact that this was a very joyous occasion, and the fact that the entire family was present at one time (I have five kids, one of whom lives in Boston with her husband), but this was truly the best vacation ever, in THE most beautiful place I have ever visited. (Although my honeymoon in Hawaii 36 years ago was pretty gorgeous, too!)

  5. My favorite beach for my family has been Ft. Walton Beach in Florida. Very serene and uncrowded. The kids had a blast. It was that perfect--" I am so blessed to be here and so happy all are enjoying themselves." My little guy has autism so vacations are tricky for him. He was so happy and calm and that made me so blessed.

  6. My favorite vacation spot is St Croix..lots of beach side bars and lots of adventures!

  7. my fav was cabos, my husband and i enjoyed everything about this beautiful destination..
    the mexican people are so gracious, so humble.. really makes you take stock of things and everyday since i have been saying what i am grateful for today..

  8. The best vacations I've had are in the Dominican Republic, what wonderful people and the weather,water and such beautiful nights!!
    The BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Since I have been on only two vacations in my adult life, my favorite would be the girls only vacation I took this July to Seattle. I did so many "Firsts" in my life. At the age of 42 I flew in my first Airplane. I conqoured my fear if flying and heights. I when to the top of the space needle. My Sisters in Law took from Eastern Washington to Western Washington we did our own little "Twilight Tour" by having lunch in Port Angeles, spending the night in LaPush and doing the whole tourist thing in Forks. I also spent time in the Hoh Rainforest dipped my feet in the Pacific Ocean and stood at the base of Mount Rainer and wildflower at my feet in the Alipine Meadows. Such a cool vacation.

  10. A Twilight Tour sounds like lots of fun! I would like to do that and volunteer at Best Friend's Animal Sanctuary.

  11. My favorite vacation spot is Tuscany. It's been about 10 years since my last visit. Morning walks were a delight through the vineyards and hill towns and everything we ate and drank was fabulous.

  12. Don't really get to take vacations, but when I got remarried to a wonderful man after a really bad injury I really couldn't travel far. So we decided to go to St. Augustine, Florida (aprox 6 hrs from home) for our honeymoon. It was like going back in time with the forts, cannons, people dressed in era clothing and soldiers. It took me forever but I made it up the stairs of the lighthouse (with alot of assistance and breaks). What a wonderful view!
