The original Acqua di Parma Colonia came out over one hundred years ago (in 1916), and along the way, the brand solidified its presence as a niche yet successful perfume house by sticking to fragrances that were crafted in Italy and maintained a high standard of quality.

Fragrant Friday: John Varvatos Artisan Blu Eau de Toilette

The one thing that I love about men’s scents is that they are mostly refreshing: and I know that’s what makes most men buy them too.  A lot of men want to get rid of any semblance of body odor by masking it with something fresh and clean, and it’s a wonderful formula especially if […]

AERIN ROSE COLOGNE COLLECTION

I’ve been a huge fan of the Aerin brand for a whle now – I love the simplicity of her concepts and the entire obsession with florals in all things really speaks to me.  The gold packaging is classic and chic, and missed in a time when so much is black and very trendy. The […]

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. The department […]
