Tocca Crema de Mano hand cream is a nice hand cream. I have to admit that I only really like it because of the fragrance. The formula is nice but it isn’t heavy-duty or exceptional. The formula is pretty basic. It is moisturizing without being greasy. I do like that. I really dislike using a heavy-duty hand cream during the day. It can be so gross. You can have slippery computer keys, steering wheel, door knobs, smudging an iPhone, and you can find yourself unable to open anything. I like Tocca’s light weight hand cream. It’s practical for every day, day time use. It absorbs so quickly. But, what I really like is the Stella fragrance.

This hand cream is packed with fragrance. The Stella fragrance is an elegant interpretation of blood oranges. It’s a flirty citrus floral scent. It is loaded with cool, feminine lilies on top of a juicy blood oranges. I notice the feminine lilies over the juicy blood oranges. Together they work together wonderfully creating a beautiful dainty citrus-floral.

This cream is a bit expensive at $8 for 2 oz. but it is such a luxurious pick-me-up to use throughout the day. My job lacks glamor and using this product makes me feel a bit more glamorous. It is available at beautyhabit.com.

(Sorry about being behind on posts. My life has been very crazy lately. I promise I’ll get better about posting. I’ve been trying so many great new products and I can’t wait to share.)

This is one of my favorite home fragrance oils ever. Aromatique The Smell of Spring does smell like spring. It is a blend of dainty, dewy lilies like snowdrops and lily of the valley paired with fragrant hyacinth and faint, powdery lilac. It is a dewy spring floral oil. It is very floral and very feminine. It does smell like concentrated spring in a bottle. I love these types of florals (especially hyacinth) so I love this. This is a home fragrance oil that I will always have around. I could see how some would find this fragrance oil to strong for their home. I don’t. I need something to help me get out of a winter funk. I like to burn this in the dead of winter as a reminder for spring. I like to burn it in spring because it is very fitting for a Nowruz celebration. I like it for summer and fall because it is such a pretty fragrance and makes my home smell fresh.

Like I’ve said before in other Aromatique reviews, I do not use this fragrance to refresh dried potpourri. I think that is what it is for. I use about 5 drops mixed with water and burn it in a home fragrance oil burner like The Body Shop oils. This makes my house so fragrant and like a dewy spring meadow. After the oil is gone (evaporated), I can still smell the home fragrance for a few days (on the floor of my home that I choose to burn it). I guess this all depends on the size of your home. But, I’m impressed with the lasting power. My only real complaint is that I don’t like the bottle. I have to use a dropper to get the oil out without making a mess. But, I am using it differently, I think.

Do give this fragrance a try if you are the type of person that likes spring floral fragrances like Coty Muguet de Bois EDT, Antica Farmacista Tuberose, Hycantih, & Lily of the Valley EDP, Strange Invisible Perfumes Urban Lily EDP, Annick Goutal Grand Amour EDT, Yardley Lily of the Valley EDT,  Tocca Giulietta EDT, and/or Jessica McClintock EDP. A bottle retails for $9. It is available on the company’s website.
