Perfume Month!

This month is going to be all about fragrances! It’s not going to just be about me trying on different fragrances and telling you about them. Instead it’ll be about what’s already out there and what’s to come soon. I’ll tell you about some niche brands that are worth exploring, what fragrances are being released […]

Emporio Armani White for Her

Goodness gracious, this perfume is certainly testament to the fact that a good scent can cheer you up and totally make your day. When I smelled this goody, I was floored. It’s fresh, it’s new, and best of all it’s going to be available! Up until recently, Emporio Armani White for her wasn’t available on […]

Clean Fragrances – Shower Fresh

To be quite honest, when the whole line of CLEAN fragrances came out on the market I didn’t really get it. It makes you smell like laundry? You just smell like soap? Isn’t it easier (and cheaper) to rub yourself with Bounce, or better yet, take a shower? Then last week I decided that maybe […]

Georgio Armani Prive Couture Collection

I discovered the Armani Prive fragrance collection on a trip to the Armani cosmetics counter at Holt Renfrews, though that store does stock the collection in its regular perfume department as well. What immediately caught my eye was the plain black bottles with the gemstone caps. They were made so that the fragrance inside was […]

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 […]

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today’s my birthday! What did I get for my birthday, you ask? For the past few years, every year around my birthday I get a new perfume. I don’t know how it started or why, but I like the concept of every year having a particular scent associated with it. It all started when I […]

Lancome Miracle Forever

Lancome’s Miracle Forever was only added to the Lancome line of perfumes this year. Though I’ve heard that the perfume was meant to appeal to a younger audience, I found no sweetness or ephemeral citrus notes that are usually found in those scents. Miracle Forever has a peppery note that’s a bit of a bite […]

Bond Perfumes

The Canadian market is so different than the American one, even in a big city like Toronto. I find that it’s not as edgy and up-to-date, and I frequently have problems finding “in” items. For example, you’d think that every single drugstore and spa/salon would have a few different shades of black nail polish, but […]
