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. The […]

First Impressions: Burberry My Burberry

Mmmmmmm! That’s what I said when I smelled Burberry’s new perfume My Burberry. The perfume is fresh and easy to wear, with notes of Sweet Pea, Bergamot, Geranium, Golden Quince, Freesia, Patchouli, Rain-Tipped Damask and Centifolia Roses. It’s supposed to remind us of a London garden after the rain, but there are so many scents that […]

Prada Candy Florale

Forget syrupy sweet candy, this is a fun fragrance on a whole other level. “Prada’s latest fragrance evolved from the concept of an imaginary flower created especially for Candy.” Candy being the persona created for this fragrance. The idea of imaginary flora was used to create Prada Candy Florale.  Think “white Cosmos” with airy and […]

New Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream

Daisy was one of the first Marc Jacobs fragrances, and I think that it’s the best one. Powdery and Musky notes blend to make a scent that’s fresh, young, fun, and still slightly sophisticated. Daisy Dream is absolutely a lovely late summer flanker to the original Daisy. It has more pronounced fruity notes such as […]

New L’Occitane Frisson de Verveine Collection

Verbena is traditionally a grass found in India, but L’Occitane’s new Frisson de Verveine collection uses a version found in Provence. I love Verbena because it does smell fresh, grassy, dry, and sort of herbal. This version from Provence definitely smells different from the Indian variety. It is lush and lemony, while having hints of […]

Valentino Uomo – New for Men

If you’re not careful when choosing men’s fragrance, you run the risk of smelling very boring. Most men’s scents are nothing special – they smell lemony, fresh, and woodsy for the drydown. Valentino Uomo is different, so much so that it stands out from most men’s perfumes. First and last, there’s a strong hit of […]
