Juliette Has a Gun

For the past few weeks, I have been absolutely smitten by this perfume label. Created by the grandson of Nina Ricci, Juliette Has a Gun boasts two fragrances under its young label and each one has a rose base. The idea is to take the traditional and upgrade it, giving it a rock and roll […]

Hypnose

I had never tried Lancome’s Hypnose but figured I should since a counter lady told me that it was one of their best-selling perfumes! The scent was offered in a limited edition Sheer version this summer. The top note of this scent didn’t rub me the right way, but I had already sprayed it directly […]

Bulgari Omnia Amethyst

A short review is the best way to go in this case. This fragrance is quite a beautiful floral that you should definitely have a look at when you get a chance. I think that its best quality is that unlike a lot of new fragrances that are heavy on the rose note, this one […]

Aveda Sensory Journey

I went on the Aveda Sensory Journey and I think that you should too. The journey is really simple and it’s made to help you find your favourite scent without you using any of your usual biases towards scents or scent families. Every Aveda location does the Sensory Journey and you first have to fill […]

Armani Prive Eclat de Jasmine

I’ve reviewed the Armani Prive fragrance collection before and mentioned that what I loved about it was the wonderful smokiness that added a layer of mystery and uniqueness to each fragrance in the collection. Eclat de Jasmine is the newest addition to the line and its superficial distinction is the rose coloured stopper that caps […]

Estee Lauder Pleasures Delight

I know that Estee Lauder Pleasures was a favourite for many women – I always meet women who say that they have purchased and then repurchased this scent since it’s release, and so it makes so much sense for Estee Lauder to introduce limited editions of Pleasures. There’s been Pleasures Exotic (which was more tropical), […]

Lloyd You Slay Me

A scene from Entourage, Season 4, Episode 9 (Gary’s Desk) Ari: What’s that smell? Lloyd: It’s Issey Miyake, her favourite scent. I’m wearing it as a subtle, subliminal show of our support. The “her” in Lloyd’s sentence is referring to Mary J. Blige. I don’t know whether that really is her favourite scent or whether […]

My Readers are Adventurous

At least that’s what I’m gathering from the latest poll results. 70% of people who answered the poll said that they would wear a scent intended for the opposite sex, and I’m just going to assume that most of these people would have no qualms actually buying the perfume at the men’s counter too. Interesting. […]

Covet By Sarah Jessica Parker

Fragrance month continues here at CanadianBeauty.com and the video of Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest perfume, Covet, has been making the rounds on the Internet. It’s clear that the video is supposed to be funny and literally reminds you what “covet” really means. The bottle itself is beautiful to look at, but remember that the jewel-like […]

Scent Intense

Never has a scent intrigued me as much as Scent Intense by Costume National. I had only heard of the design house fleetingly and certainly didn’t know that they made a perfume. I don’t even know what compelled me to pick up the fairly nondescript black bottle, take a sniff, and then spray some on […]
