love is the only gold.

Saving money is always a good thing. Especially during this time of year. Thanks to holiday spending and seasonal outings, my bank account has certainly been feeling the pinch. With tons of expenses coming up in the next several months....I am cutting back wherever I can. Except when I head to Marshalls, of course. While browsing the selection downtown, I came across a gift set of my favourite Kim Kardashian perfume: Gold. It was a great price and included a full sized bottle, a body lotion, and a body wash as well. I couldn't resist!

I remember the first time I smelled it. There was this set with four mini-versions of her fragrances that I picked up a few years back. The other scents were pretty and floral but Gold? Gold was something special. It had this spicy kind of undertone that was totally different to her other perfumes - or any other perfume I had in my collection. The scent isn't super girly. It's strong, powerful, and dynamic. This is the kind of perfume I reach for when I am feeling super confident.....or when I'm not feeling particularly confident and want to turn it all around.

As for the packaging, they did a great job. The picture of Kim on the box is glamorous. I also love the Gold lining inside makes the whole set seem elegant and luxurious. I love the combination of the black and gold. This was definitely a winner as far as I am concerned.

Some perfumes I love more than others. And some I reach for more than others. But when it comes to Kim Kardashian's Gold, I can't get enough of it. I don't know what it is about this particular scent, but it just makes me feel good! This set may not have been something I needed.....but I am certainly glad that I came across it. The perfume, lotion, and body wash are absolutely gorgeous.

Have you smelled Gold? What do you think of the scent?
