Fragrance Review: Byredo Super Cedar

It’s always always a good sign when you’re wearing a perfume, and you get asked what IS that.  The first time this happened to me when I was wearing Byredo’s Super Cedar, I immediately wondered if I had put too much on.  One spray doesn’t seem like much especially when you’re going to be out […]

Fragrance Friday: New, Calvin Klein Women

New from Calvin Klein this month is their perfume Women.  Check out the bottle: functional artistry, this bottle is at once glamorous but simple, which matches the Calvin Klein aesthetic. The scent is also a contrast.  The opening is a fruity floral with the notes of orange petal flowers, and a touch of eucalyptus keeps […]

Fragrance Friday: Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

Here are pictures of my own bottle of Coco Mademoiselle. The seal is difficult to break – not because it’s uber-secure but because you know that it was put on in some workshop at Chanel Headquarters.   I did finally end up breaking the seal – but only because I know that Chanel never discontinues […]

Le Labo Rose 31

If you’re looking for a unique scent, then this might be one for you.  It’s rose but with a twist, and when I pulled it out of the archives recently, I got asked again and again what it was… I invested in the Le Labo Rose 31 fragrance oil – without even smelling it first. […]

Paul & Joe Hair and Body Mist

This beautiful bottle is Paul and Joe’s new Hair and Body Mist.  Does anyone even use a hair mist? I am finding more and more that my hair products are already so heavily scented that there is no room for a hair mist, so I use this just on my body.  A blend of citrus […]

Fragrance Friday: Acqua di Parma Chinotto di Liguria

  Now that the warmer weather is here, I definitely need to update my fragrance selection so that it’s not something too warm.  Instead, I prefer cool fragrances that are light on the skin and don’t overpower, but still can combat any natural odors that might not be the best. My latest addition is the […]

Fragrance Friday: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

This might just be the perfect scent to wear in the spring. Although the name of the Viktor & Rolf fragrance is Flowerbomb, the perfume actually has a great deal of sweetness in it and a slight amount of floral. The notes list a plethora of flowers along with some patchouli but I couldn’t really […]

Jo Malone Jasmine and Mint Cologne

@JoMaloneLondon makes some of nicest most wearable colognes.  They are unique and light enough to wear every day. How can I describe Jasmine and Mint Cologne? It doesn’t smell like Jasmine and it doesn’t smell like Mint. More like a fresh garden, which is a good thing.  The only problem with Jo Malone colognes is […]

Chanel No 5 Body Cream

Let’s not lie.  We all love a few luxury beauty products.  As much as it’s thrilling to find out that a drugstore mascara is awesome, a luxe item from the department store can feel like a good investment because you’re going to cherish using it. Right? My mother has been waxing poetic about Chanel Number […]

Sisley Soir de Lune

Beautiful bottle, right? Well what’s inside is beautiful too! This whole week, I’ve been a bit tired of warm winter scents and needed something more fresh, so I’ve been wearing Sisley’s Soir de Lune eau de parfum. I know, I know, when you walk by the Sisley counter, you don’t really think about their fragrances or […]
