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 […]

L’Etat Libre D’Orange – Vraie Blonde

I haven’t talked about a perfume in a while, and it’s mainly because I’ve been sticking to a few favourites. Life’s been busy, so I’ve been spritzing and running out the door. Nonetheless, I finally pulled out something I’d been meaning to try for some time. It’s a perfume by L’Etat Libre D’Orange, a very […]

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.

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 […]

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), […]
