Frederic Malle Perfumes

I found this awesome video about Frederic Malle – watch it. I wish I had had more time in NYC to go through his entire line of perfume, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Next time, perhaps. I do like his system of classifying perfumes. I think that describing it in ways that are […]

Penhaligon’s of London… In New York

On my last day in New York, I had a chance to wander the streets at my leisure. After checking out Barney’s I walked up Madison Avenue just to see the sights, and lo and behold, I ended up finding the Penhaligon’s store! It was, without a doubt, the highlight of my weekend. Buying perfume […]

Perfume of the Day

This morning, I dabbed on Coco Mademoiselle – it’s not too strong and I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t like how it smells so I thought it would be fitting for a day when I’d be surrounded by so many new people. Will it now forever be the smell of a disappointing day? (I’m taking […]

Dream

Dream is the newest scent by Sharon Bolton Scents and it smells amazing. So good, in fact, that I like to wear it even when I’m not going anywhere. I just like catching a whiff of it every now and then, and the scent is perfect for the winter weather. The notes include amber and […]

Kate by Kate Moss

I’ve finally had a chance to sniff the new Kate Moss fragrance. I had high expectations from this one because it’s widely known that Kate likes to wear Penhaligon’s Bluebells, which is a captivating and very British scent. Unlike the illusive Penhaligon’s, Kate Moss’s Kate is available easily at the department store or drugstore, though […]

Estee Lauder Pure White Linen

This spring, Estee Lauder is introducing Pure White Linen Light Breeze. It’s a fresh fragrance that’s a blend of floral and citrus (but mostly floral to my nose). The one thing that surprised me was that although it’s fresh, it’s strong and I found one spray to be more than enough. The lasting power is […]

Scent Counts for More Than You Think

Interesting article from msn.com. Sniffing out likability, one person at a time 07/12/2007 1:55:05 PM Sniffing someone out has taken on a whole new meaning. Scientists have discovered that others’ perceptions of a person’s scent can make it or break it for them socially. In a new study, they’ve discovered that if a person dislikes […]

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 […]
