Hi there, my darlings! I've spent quite a bit of time, especially in the recent months, talking about my love of fragrances--you guys probably know just how much I love a good perfume! So, when I was given the opportunity to review and share with you all my thoughts on The Fragrance Foundation's 2017 nominees in the Consumers Choice Women's category, you can bet I all but jumped at the chance! Now while these beauties are still winging their way over to me and so we'll have to wait til I'm able to test them, the voting period is already open and I didn't want you all to waste another minute of time getting your votes in. Plus, with Mother's Day right around the corner, I know that this post may give some of you that extra little bit of inspiration to find the perfect gift for Mom!

Falling in love for the first time is an indescribable feeling that no one will ever forget. To celebrate that once-in-a-lifetime wonder,Ralph Lauren Fragrances presents TENDER ROMANCE. An enchanting fragrance, TENDER ROMANCE ushers in the new chapter in the Ralph Lauren “Stories of Romance.”

TENDER ROMANCE, a white, luminous oriental scent, is a delicate caress of pure white magnolia and silky soft cashmere. Master Perfumer Honorine Blanc gracefully tailored the fragrance to tell the story of an intimate moment, selecting the white magnolia flower to bring purity, femininity and radiance.

TENDER ROMANCE is designed to evoke the warmth of an affectionate embrace and the soft caress of cashmere on the skin. Captured in the iconic Ralph Lauren Romance bottle with a new peach juice, TENDER ROMANCE layers beautifully feminine notes, including:
TOP NOTES: Ginger, Pear Accord, Bergamot
MID NOTES: White Magnolia Accord , Jasmine, Ginger Lily Accord
BASE NOTES: Cashmere Woods Accord, Benzoin, Musk
The complementary ginger and cashmere woods create both a crisp energetic introduction on top
and sensual warmth in the dry down. TENDER ROMANCE diverges from the opulent oriental fragrance family, with a creamy, bright and soft combination


Inspired by the electric energy of a new crush and the boldness of hot pink lace, our perfumers looked to bright, forever-flirty florals like Magnolia, Treasure Peony and Ashok flower—an Indian bloom and Hindu symbol of love—to radiate brightness from the heart of this scent. Sensual, too, with White Amber and Blonde Cedarwood. Fresh from Sea Mist Accord and cool Cardamom. It’s head-turning, addicting andcompletely unexpected. Just like your latest CRUSH!

  1. I love perfume too, but I'm a weirdo and I like unusual scents, primarily orientals, that are hard to find. So though the top and mid notes of Tender Romance aren't my usual thing, the dry down notes are. I'll have to give it a sniff!

  2. I couldn't vote since I don't wear fragrance but they all sound beautiful.

  3. Can you believe I haven't tried any of these? I love sweet smells, mostly, followed by citrus-y and marine ones. Not a fan of musky scents.

  4. I love perfume, but i have not tried any of these!

  5. I haven't tried any of these yet!!
