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 […]

New from Hermes: Kelly Caleche

Kelly Caleche is the newest offering by Hermes, and it is not one to be passed up. Every review I’ve read of the fragrance talks about the leather notes, and though they’re there (subtle, to be sure) nobody has mentioned the overwhelming green mango that one smells on first spray. Coming from Hermes it’s surprising […]

Absinthe perfume?

Today I’m wearing Fou d’Absinthe by L’Artisan Parfumeur. It’s a male scent, but it suits me wonderfully well. Usually, L’Artisan says that its scents are unisex, but they do say that this one in particular is more masculine. Either way, it smells good and that’s coming from someone who prefers florals on the whole. The […]

L’Artisan Parfumeur

Creating a perfume is an art. Each perfume is different in so many ways, and there are no two that can be exactly alike. When asked how she came up with her new perfume, Gwen Stefani said that she talked about her ideas with a perfumer who then came up with a bunch of different […]
