Ring My Bella Giveaway

I’m a perfume addict. There, I said it. I long for the change in season, it’s how I justify changing my fragrance and investing in new ones. Now that spring is here magazines have been luring me with their glossy full page, scented advertisements. You’ll find me rubbing my wrists furiously against the paper, desperately trying to release the scent embedded within the pages… oh yeah, I love perfume. So when Benefit Cosmetics sent me their newest floral scent “Ring My Bella” in their cute signature cocktail shaker bottle I was in heaven.

Top notes: pink rose petals, soft lily, summer daisy
Middle notes: Egyptian jasmine, creamy peony
Bottom notes: white patchouli, vanilla tincture, white musk

The packaging is simply adorable, I couldn’t show you without creating a little animation in it’s honour. The box opens up to show “Bella” in her little boutique. I don’t know who the concept designer is for Benefit Cosmetics but they need to be paid more. The bottle is sturdy and small enough for me to tote around all day in my handbag and the cap is nice and secure. Please don’t stare too long at this, you might get dizzy like I did!

    The first perfume that I ever wore was J’adore by Christian Dior. I was 16 when I my first perfume was spritzer on my neck, on my wrists. I felt like my confidence grew, I felt mature I felt like a woman. The bottle of golden scent sat on my dresser and I would see it every morning, instantly reminding me of the special events I would wear it to.
    The day my first bottle ran out was hard, and every time I it’s distinct fragrance, it takes me back to those first days where I started to enjoy growing up, and the moments I enjoyed the first steps of becoming a woman.

    Aramani Code. It seems to love me. Every time I remember to use it, people ask what it is and compliment it. I am willing to give this cutie a go though. You’re right, how GORGEOUS is that packaging!?

    Ooooooooooo, love this post. Your Bella clip is too cool, I don’t mind if I get dizzy, fragrance makes me swoon anyway. I love Benefit, very cute, very sassy, but I haven’t tried their fragrances yet. My favourite perfume at the moment is by a brand called TOKYO MILK and the scent is called ‘Song in D Minor’. It has notes of white orchid, gardenia, orange flower and amber. I cry tears of joy when I wear it. But ‘Ring My Bella’ sounds swoonworthy too! xxx

    ‘Bright Crystal’ – Versace. It’s my signature scent! I first received it as a gift from my mum four years ago when I turned 18, it reminds me of finally feeling like a woman who was ready to take on the world. I’ve been given a bottle every year since then from either a friend or family member for my birthday so it also reminds me of feeling loved. The bottle is so bling bling and to top it off it looks amazing on my dressing table!

    This is a hard one, because my favourite perfume is not one that I actually wear very often. It’s Arpege, by Lanvin, and it’s my mum’s signature scent – the one that she would always put on when dressing up to go out to dinner when we were little. I have forever memories of swirling skirts scented with Arpege. I wear it too, occasionally, when I feel like I need to be close to her.

    I love Dior Addict because it is sex in a bottle and because I originally bought it on my round-the-world-trip. Every time I smell it it reminds me of that holiday. Also, my husband calls it “Kylie-Smell” *love*

    Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker…my mum bought it for me to wear on my wedding day…so now when I wear it I’m instantly transported back to the serene Greek island, with the agean sea glistening behind us, staring into the eyes of my to be husband…it’s the next best thing to being able to bottle how I felt that day…

    My favourite perfume used to be Anna Sui Original Scent but it seems to be very hard to track down these days so I have since moved on to MOR’s Marshmallow fragrance. It’s soft, sweet and musky all at the same time & I love it because it makes me feel sexy. When I smell it I think it smells so enchanting that if I wasn’t me & I smelled me I would totally want to do me :P

    My fav perfume is Cool Water by Davidoff. It is my day to day scent and even when i wear another one for a change, I always end up going back to this one. It has a nice fresh scent and is not overpowering.
    I also like the bright blue bottle :) Stands out on my dresser

    My favourite perfume is Chanel No 5, not only because it’s a classic scent, but also because it’s the perfume I asked my Nonna/grandmother to buy me when I was 9 years old when she went back to Italy on holiday. I continue to buy the refills for the same bottle to this day – it makes it so extra special and sentimental.

    My favourite would have to be Lolita Lempicka. It’s got liquorice notes and sweet, spicy florals that linger and change as I wear it. It makes me feel grown up and mysterious, but also girly and fun!

    Amanda says

    Believe it or not, the perfume I wear the most is the original Paris Hilton. It’s a bit embarrassing to admit, but it works really well with my skin. I also ADORE Be Delicious DKNY. It’s so light and fruity and everything I love about a perfume. Never managed to own it though. Maybe one day!

    The One by D&G because it reminds me of when josh gave it to me when we came to sydney for schoolies. Woman by Versace because I got it duty free on the way home from euro trip

    I am 30 years old and I don’t have a perfume! I almost feel overwhelmed by the choices and so I have been too scared to try and choose a scent. I think the notes in Ring My Bella sound divine and I would love to make it my signature summer scent!

    Amy says

    Tommy Girl is forever my favorite perfume. When I was sixteen, I had to buy an imitation version because I was too poor to splash out for a real bottle. I bought big when I was shopping duty free on my honeymoon, and it was the first time I ever had the real thing- I was so excited about it my brand new husband felt a little left out. What girl doesn’t have a personal relationship with her perfume? :)

    My absolute favourite is Lolita Lempicka – the apple bottle is gorgeous! However would love to try this one – I am a very recent convert to Benefit cosmetics and the packaging and naming is always to die for!!

    One of my favourites is Magnetism by Escada. When i was first friends/dating my now husband, i accidently left my scarf in his car, he said all he could smell was my perfume thru out his car and he couldnt stop thinking about me and the rest is history!!!! :)

    Joop. I wore it on our first date and now 17 years later it still brings back such beautiful memories. I still wear it often and hubby loves it just as much as I do.

    Keena says

    My fave at the moment is Naughty Alice, by Vivienne Westwood. It’s disappointingly not very naughty, but it’s subtle and flirty, and it reminds me of a warm, fun Spring day. I’m an Alice in Wonderland nut, so i was drawn to it because of it’s name, but when I tried it on and wore it all day I couldn’t stop smelling myself and got lots of compliments on it, so I knew I had to get it!

    I wish I had a perfume let alone a favourite. I have a bottle of something by some celebrity but I don’t like it anymore and have had it for years.

    Natalie says

    I only have ever had one bottle of perfume. I don’t go out much & I can never justify the price of buying a new one, when I still have some left in my trusted bottle. So, my favourite perfume is Spirit of Moonflower by The Body Shop, because it’s lasted me years & still smells fantastic.

    Emily says

    my favourite is ‘For Her’ by Narciso Rodriguez. Apart from smelling simply divine, this was the perfume i wore on my wedding day. i purchased it especially for the day as i fell in love with it when i first smelt it… now every time i smell it i think of my wedding day… Hubby has the matching cologne too, so we can smell glorious together ;)

    DanniiBeauty says

    - great subtle, yet pleasant smell
    - floraly smell – love
    -beautiful, elegant bottle
    -lasts all day
    -can be worn day and night
    Love it!

    I adore Anna Sui perfumes the bottles are just as gorgeous as the scents they contain that make me feel like a princess at least for a few minutes until the children start demanding, wanting, vying for my attention to return to them.

    Lisa says

    My favourite perfume is Chanel No. 5. My mum always wore it when she would go out, and i received my first bottle when i was in Paris a few years back! Now just a spray and i feel like i’m back there again, instant pick me up!
