Tom Ford Cafe Rose

So every year for my birthday, I go out and get a new perfume.  This year, I happened to be at Nordstrom’s the weekend after my birthday and I couldn’t help but wander by the fragrance section.  Jo Malone, Creed, and Tom Ford were calling my name, and I stopped to take a sniff at […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

New Narciso Rodriguez for her fleur musc

I’ve been a fan of the original Narciso Rodriguez perfume since 2006!  I still have about half my original bottle left, and I wore it so much that it’s one of the scents that I can immediately identify, even on someone else. Now, there’s a flanker: the Narciso Rodriguez for her fleur musc, and it’s […]

Philosophy’s Amazing Grace Dresses Up

I’m so happy to become reacquainted with Philosophy’s Amazing Grace fragrance. It’s a super clean fresh scent that is perfect for livening up an old outfit, or freshening up the senses in the middle of the day.  Notes are bergamot, clean musk, and white flowers and it’s at once a floral and feminine scent that’s […]

Trufitt & Hill Apsley Cologne

Trufitt & Hill has just recently come on to my radar as a British brand with heritage and top notch men’s grooming products. Established in 1805, Trufitt and Hill is known for grooming so good, that it’s preferred by members of the British Royal Court.   Although they focus on men’s shaving creams and brushes, […]
