Viktor&Rolf Magic Collection

I received a complimentary bottle of Viktor&Rolf’s Dirty Trick fragrance from Saks Fifth Avenue in order to provide a review. All opinions are my own. 

Lately I’ve been working on building up my fragrance collection instead of just buying one bottle and using it until it’s gone. Now that I have a few bottles, I can collect different fragrances for each occasion. When I was asked to review Viktor&Rolf’s Dirty Trick fragrance I was excited to add to my fragrance library.

Every fragrance collection looks to tap into a specific lifestyle and Viktor&Rolf’s Magic Collection is no different. There are six scents in the collection and they look to bring a little magic into everyday life.

Each of the six fragrances has a two-word name to represent their olfactory and magical elements. Each scent contains an innovative ingredient that has never been used in perfumery and pairs it with a traditional ingredient. The entire collection is unisex (John didn’t seem too excited about trying this fragrance himself, which is fine because that means more for me!).

The Magic Collection includes:

  • Lavender Illusion – the illusion of the classic lavender magically turned into a precious flower
  • Liquid Diamonds – the transformation of the hardest precious stone into liquid
  • Dirty Trick – the ubiquity of precious iris and provocative ink
  • Sage Spell – the addiction of sage becoming a transcending plant
  • Sparkling Secret – the sublimation of a fusing cologne
  • Dancing Roses – the captivating dream of levitating rose petals

I tried Dirty Trick, which is elegantly sensual with notes of suede accord, cedarwood essence, and benzoin (it’s a resin from a specific type of tree – I had to look it up).

Dirty Trick combines the elegant and precious Iris and the mischievous and provocative Chinese Ink into a concoction of disruptive and animalistic sensuality. It arrests the senses with a mischievous combination of iris and ink. Sparkling bergamot and clary sage are interrupted by spicy and sweet incense to compose the top notes, while powdery iris and violet leaves blend harmoniously with ink to create a metallic and smoky heart.

This fragrance retails for $220 at Saks Fifth Avenue and comes in an apothecary-inspired bottle. I love that Dirty Trick is such a sensual fragrance and I can see myself saving this for a romantic date with my husband or a special night out when I want to look and feel my best.

The Art of Detroit

Disclosure: I received complimentary tickets to The Art of Detroit. All opinions expressed are my own.

John and I were invited to The Art of Detroit at Saks Fifth Avenue a few weeks back. We had a blast and I wanted to share some of the pictures from the event.


When we arrived at Saks, they literally rolled out the red carpet for us!

We didn’t end up winning any of them, but we did get to enjoy some fantastic food and drinks from Two James Distillery, Atwater Brewery, Slows BBQ, MGM Grand Tap, Taste Love Cupcakes and Sanders Hot Fudge. YUM!

Saks had an awesome TapSnap photo booth set up and John and I took a great picture, one of my new favorites!


I also got to catch up with Shannon Lazovski, from Glamorous Moms, who I hadn’t seen since before I started my blog, so it was fun to get some blogging tips from her.


Next up, I spent some time at the ReVive Skincare Counter. Now, I wasn’t really familiar with ReVive before, but after I got home I realized that I had some of their Fermatif Neck Renewal Cream and Volumizing Serum that I was gifted by a friend. I didn’t know what I had, but am definitely starting to use these. While at the counter I got a sample of the brand new Intensite Line Erasing Serum, which I was told is like Botox in a bottle. I don’t have a ton of wrinkles yet, but I am all about preventative measures.


We were almost on our way out, when I got asked by someone at the Cellcosmet counter if I wanted a massage – I thought they meant a neck massage, but it was actually a foot massage! I had never heard of this brand before, but whatever she put on my feet made them feel fantastic after an evening of standing in heels. It was seriously amazing!

We had a wonderful time! This is definitely an event I would go to next year. A big thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue for inviting us!
