Emporio Armani Diamonds for Him Is Different

First there was the Emporio Armani Diamonds for her, which featured a huge campaign headed by Beyonce and now there’s the Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men which features the ubiquitous ads with Josh Hartnett (what happened to him anyway?). I love this scent. Unlike most fragrances marketed for men, this isn’t just a dose of […]

Sex and The City Movie Madness!

Surely, one of the most talked about movies this year is the Sex and the City Movie, and if you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for? Even if you don’t like the characters, you should know that the styling is absolutely to die for and that alone was worth the admission price. […]

No. 5 Eau Premiere by Chanel – Same Story Different Ending

Chanel’s No. 5 continues to be  one of the best-selling perfumes in every country, every year, and in France it is almost always number 1.  I, personally, don’t really like the scent so I think it has more to do with heritage and prestige than how the scent actually smells, but anyways.

Sensuous from Estee Lauder

Honestly now, I really do prefer fall fragrances to those released in the summer. They are earthier, usually last longer, and they’re really just my style.

B Spot by Benefit

Benefit’s got a new scent – it’s called B Spot! Fitting for its release this summer, the top note is a fruity tangy mango and tangerine which I could smell and identify the second I sprayed the fragrance on my skin. They are that distinctive and I think you’ll be able to smell them too. […]

I Respectfully Disagree

Hermes’ newest perfume is called Un Jardin Apres La Mousson which means A Garden After a Monsoon. The perfume was inspired by a garden in south India after a monsoon, and since South India is where spices are grown, there’s a heavy cardamom note and something peppery. Despite the spicy notes, this is not a […]

Lancome Perfume Launch

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to attend the launch of Lancome’s newest fragrance, called Magnifique. All I’m going to say at this point is that it really is Magnifique and really adds something to Lancome’s collection of fragrances. Love it, and I’ll tell you more about it when it comes out in September. Also, […]
