L’Etat Libre D’Orange – Vraie Blonde

Today’s scent is a perfume by L’Etat Libre D’Orange, a very original perfume company from Paris. The scent that I’m testing out today is called Vraie Blonde and it is smoky. So smoky that I wonder why the scent is called “real blonde” when it smells so masculine. In the first hour of wear, the […]

Kilian Back to Black

I’ve been using the KonMari method on my beauty stash, but it’s not going as well as I’d hoped.  I’ve started going through perfumes that I have held on to for years and years, forgetting what they even smell like because I’m constantly moving on to the next one. It’s so hard to get rid […]

Tom Ford Fougère d’Argent and Fougère Platine

Here’s the short review of Tom Ford’s new fragrances, Fougère d’Argent and Fougère Platine: they smell like men’s fragrances.  I’m thinking Hugo Boss, men’s counter at the Bay, your dad’s favourite toilette, the sharpness that lingered in the air after he left the house in the morning, or what you’d smell in his car.

Chanel No 5 Body Cream

Let’s not lie.  We all love a few luxury beauty products.  As much as it’s thrilling to find out that a drugstore mascara is awesome, a luxe item from the department store can feel like a good investment because you’re going to cherish using it. Right? My mother has been waxing poetic about Chanel Number […]

Sisley Soir de Lune

Beautiful bottle, right? Well what’s inside is beautiful too! This whole week, I’ve been a bit tired of warm winter scents and needed something more fresh, so I’ve been wearing Sisley’s Soir de Lune eau de parfum. I know, I know, when you walk by the Sisley counter, you don’t really think about their fragrances or […]

KenzoAmour

I’m taking some time to sample a few Kenzo fragrances.  Why now, you ask.  I’ve known that Kenzo Flower is the best in the market since it came out, and it’s an absolute classic.  I just felt that I had to try both Amour and Flower to see the difference in them both. Just from […]
