I’ve been out traveling a lot the past few months so it came a bit of a surprise to me when I came home to this impressive new BDJ Luxe Box. I did quite a bit of shopping when my return flight from Singapore was delayed for 4 hours. Imagine being stuck in Changi Airport for hours! It was like a huge shopping mall but less taxes so everything’s cheaper. How can I resist!! Haha. I did chance upon Elizabeth Arden skincare products but even with the price reduction, they were still very expensive, IMHO. So I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the BDJ Team was actually able to pull this one off! How they were able to release an Elizabeth Arden Box at such low price is beyond me. Hats off to the team!
I’m telling you, nothing screams understated elegance like Elizabeth Arden. The brand is not the in-your-face kind like most high-end brands but their products, especially their fragrances, are very competitive. I’ve been a huge fan of the entire line of Green Tea perfume since college; my top picks are Lavender and the original green tea. I also had the chance to try their Ceramide Capsules a few years back. I loved it but it was too expensive for a college girl to maintain so moved on to cheaper alternatives. I don’t know how you’d call it, but I’m pretty sure this is destiny re-introducing me to Elizabeth Arden skincare once again. Haha.

Despite my growing perfume collection, anyone who knows me in the office can tell you that I only alternate between Versace Bright Crystal and Elizabeth Arden Green Tea for my everyday scent. I have it in every size imaginable! I keep the big bottle on my vanity area at home, and I have small bottles in my kikay kit. The timing of this BDJ Box is just perfect, because as you can see, I am about the empty my last travel bottle! <3
What I particularly love about the Green Tea fragrance is that it is super light on the nose. I can spray on a ton of this and it never bothers anyone because the scent is never overwhelming. It’s fresh and subtle which is ideal for the office environment.
