Fragrant Friday: Kenzo World Eau de Parfum

Fragrance powerhouse Kenzo has a new perfume on the market this month, and it’s called World.  The packaging is to die.  The bottle looks like a lidded eye with a rose gold pupil hanging down in the center of the eye.  Far from being literally an eye, the concept is that this could be a […]

Fragrant Friday: New Eau Contemporaine from Simons

The best thing on the shopping horizon in Calgary this year has been the opening of Simons, a hip contemporary shopping experience that melds brand names with H&M-type basics.  It’s like The Bay meets Target, and it’s not huge but different enough from other Calgary stores which makes it worth coming back to.

Fragrance Fridays: New Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort Collection 2017

Elie Saab’s Le Parfum Resort Collection Festival Edition is the most unique perfume I’ve tried in a while.  Absolutely the most unique one I’ve smelled all season, for sure.  In fact, I’m still not sure how I feel about it because to me, it’s so unpredictable.  I’m never quite certain exactly what I’m smelling – and […]

Dior Poison Girl

Dior’s Poison is such an iconic scent, and is basically synonymous with sophistication from the 80’s which is when the scent came out.  I remember relatives picking it up at Duty Free when they travelled or buying it on the plan, so it has certain connotations for me.  Poison Girl, which is out now, targets […]

New Givenchy Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum

Givenchy has a new flanker to its popular Dahlia perfume, and it’s the Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum.  It has a lot of the same notes: woods, rose, musk, but it’s now enriched with a top note of tonka bean and vanilla which makes it smell decidedly sweet.   These notes take Dahlia Divin […]
