If you like keepsakes, then you’ll love the limited edition packaging for Hanae Mori’s Butterfly Parfum.  Just in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the perfume, it now comes in a beautiful pick lacquered bottle.  I love the bottle: it has major heft but still a touch of whimzy and lightness thanks to the […]

Nirvana Black and White perfume compacts by Elizabeth and James

If you’ve ready my most recent perfume review, you may remember that I bought a perfume oil and had mixed feelings about it.  I love working with an oil because it means that it really works with your body chemistry, but I missing being able to spray it all over the place with abandon… which […]

New Perfume: Le Labo Rose 31

I have a thing for perfume, but it’s something I splurge on every once in a while just to commemorate a special occasion.  My latest purchase was actually bought back in November of the past year to celebrate an anniversary.  I invested in the Le Labo Rose 31 fragrance oil – without even smelling it […]

New Perfume: Chloe Love Story

This is the present for anyone who likes feminine perfumes, or just enjoys Chloe perfumes in general… and I’ve found that to be the majority of women I know.  People always pick up the bottle off my vanity (it’s too pretty), spritz it, and then think they need to get some for themselves too.

First Impressions: Burberry My Burberry

It’s supposed to remind us of a London garden after the rain, but there are so many scents that […]
