Throwback Thursday: So…? Fragrances + 90s Makeup Look

One fragrance brand that introduced me to perfumes as a teen was So…? fragrances. When I was given the opportunity to receive a sample to feature on my blog, I thought it was a great excuse for some tween/teen nostalgia and to put together a 90s makeup look.

90s Makeup look

So…? 30ml and a Tattoo choker from Kmart

The sample that I received was the original *So…? fragrance. While I have tried it, it has been over 10 years quite a while since I’ve purchased/worn it

I was surprised to hear that the So…? fragrances were still available after all this time, you can check out the range here.

Top notes: Tangerine and Orange Flower
Middle notes: Jasmine, Ylang Ylang and Rose
Base notes: Amber, Sandalwood and Vanilla

The scent takes me back to when I was a tween/teen starting high school…other things that remind me of high school are tattoo chokers (pictured above), brown toned lipsticks, troll dolls and singlet dresses worn over a white t-shirt. Some 90s trends are making a comeback and I love that the current generation of teens can appreciate some of the ’90s kids’ trends…Kinda sad you can’t buy the original troll dolls any more!
