Lush Gorilla Perfume Imogen Rose

I first got @LushCosmetics Imogen Rose perfume 9 years ago when it first launched.  The perfume is discontinued now and Lush has new scents out in different packaging – the bottles actually have labels stuck on to them now, because as you can see, I lost the Imogen Rose label at some point, leaving me […]

Keep It or Use it?

I had to post this: I have a few sprays – a few days worth – left of this fabulous scent.  It’s discontinued so I was torn whether to use it or keep the last little bit.  I mean, once this is done, I’m just going to move on to something new anyway, but will […]

Jo Malone Wild Fig and Cassis Cologne

I love Jo Malone London scents.  For the most part, they are fresh and clean and I love the almost simplicity of them.  The names are simple but the scents are so thoughtful that they are anything but basic. Wild Fig and Cassis has been in my collection for almost 10 years – I got […]

Perfume: Clean Reserve Blonde Rose

This is a rose perfume that doesn’t quite smell like roses.  Do I like it?  Sometimes. Clean Reserve is Clean’s high end line of perfumes and is available at Sephora.  This line came out in 2016, which isn’t that long ago, and I’ve had this perfume since then!  Clean is the brand that came out […]

Aveda Sensory Journey

Back in 2007, I went into an Aveda store and started smelling everything – and you know how amazing their products smell.  And a sales associate thought I might like to create my own perfume since I liked the vibe of their scents and so I went on the Aveda Sensory Journey. The journey is really […]

Fragrance Friday: Tom Ford Santal Blush

My latest favourite from Tom Ford is Santal Blush.  It’s polished, airy, and cool – perfect for a bit of aloofness or to wear in a time where you think things are going to be hot. The main note of Santal Blush is sandalwood.  Dry and almost powdery, it’s a note that’s present from the […]

Yardley London Perfumes

My current favourite perfumes are just $19.99 at the drugstore and they have been around for ages for a reason! Yardley of London perfumes are one-note wonders.  They’re available in Rose, Lavender, and Lily of the Valley.  The formula is an eau de toilette, and because these are floral scents, the toilette isn’t very strong. […]

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 […]

Sisley Eau du Soir

I’m wearing Sisley’s Eau du Soir these days and it is perfect for these winter days.  I know wintery fragrances tend to be warm and cozy, but I like something that reflects the weather and I’m always gravitating to something that is fresh. Eau du Soir is truly unique because it is a very strong […]
