Beauty Buy: Kate Spade Twirl

My newest beauty obsession is Kate Spade Twirl perfume. I had been wanting to try Twirl for awhile because I love Kate Spade. Months ago I had seen some at TJ Maxx but didn't buy any. Last week I found a bottle of Twirl again at TJ Maxx and this time I bought it. I absolutely love this fragrance and it might be my new favorite perfume! The Kate Spade website describes Twirl as a mixture of pink watermelon, blackberry, and red currant with luminous musks and French macaron. You really have to smell it yourself to appreciate it. I wish that there was a way to incorporate a scratch & sniff patch onto this blog! Twirl is a great perfume to wear year-round and for all occasions. As much as I love my Lilly Pulitzer Beachy perfume, I was starting to feel silly wearing it in the winter. I used to wear Banana Republic's classic scent but hadn't seen any at the outlet recently. Kate Spade Twirl provides a perfect fragrance to switch to while my Lilly perfume is out of season. While you can order it directly from Kate Spade, I recommend searching your local TJ Maxx to see if they have some. You can save a lot of money and in case you don't like the scent (which I highly doubt will be the case), you won't have invested a lot of money in trying it. I was so impressed with Twirl that I actually bought another bottle at a different TJ Maxx yesterday, so that I would have a back-up for whenever my current bottle runs out. In addition to smelling fabulous, Twirl comes in the most precious packaging. But of course you wouldn't expect anything less from Kate Spade!
Do you have a favorite perfume? Where do you get it? Do you buy directly from the designer or cosmetics counter or do you like to bargain hunt for fragrances at TJ Maxx?


  1. I saw this at my local TJ Maxx. I really wanted it, but my mom wouldn't let me. :( Maybe next time. I received Polo 2 for Christmas and I love it!

  2. I have the perfume sample of Kate Spade's Twirl and I love it :) My favorite perfumes are the Taylor Swift enchanted wonderstruck and wonderstruck original :) TJ Maxx has the best buys, but I always like to go to sephora first and see if I like the scent before I purchase anything at a store that doesn't have samples!
    great post!

  3. I saw this at my TJMaxx but hate to buy perfume without smelling...might have to go back and give it a try though!
