4160 Tuesdays Pillow Talk Perfume Review

4160 Tuesdays Pillow Talk

4160 Tuesdays Pillow Talk was initially reserved for scent marketing for a hotel (well, rumor has it). It was meant to be a linen spray. But, you smell Pillow Talk and you don’t want your linens to have all of the fun.

Pillow Talk is a zesty, fresh fragrance. It opens as a dry and spicy with citrus. It reminds me of a stick of Juicy Fruit gum with freshly ground black pepper. Then it’s a cup of Earl Grey tea! It’s so much bergamot and… Continue reading

EauPen Thread – I’m Sick of It!


What perfume note or style are you currently tired of?
OK, so this question isn’t asking if there is something within the industry you’re sick of sniffing. I’d like to know if there is a note/genre that you have burnt yourself out on or never really liked in the first place.

My answer: amber. I went through a crazed amber stage; it was all I wore. Then one day, I was so sick of it. I had burnt myself out (like if someone that thought eating cake everyday for a… Continue reading | 8 Comments

The Different Company Pure eVe Perfume Review

The Lipstick League – week of 10.9.17

Question of the Week: Mascara, lipstick, eye shadow: you have to eliminate one from your routine FOREVER. Which would you chose?

EauMG’s Answer: Why are you guys so cruel?! After thinking about this for too long, I’m going to say mascara. But, hear me out! I have short, stumpy lashes so mascara makes a difference. I just figured I could sub them false lashes or extensions. I just can’t give up the joys of lipstick and eyeshadow.

Mugler Les Exceptions Woodissime Perfume Review

Mugler Woodissime

Like many other designer brands, Thierry Mugler has also launched a line of “exclusive” (AKA more expensive) line-up of perfumes sold at select locations and costs a lot more than their other fragrances. I guess this shouldn’t surprise me since everyone has a more expensive, limited distributed line of perfumes all in uniform bottles. But, I guess this is also what surprised me. Mugler has seemed to always do their own thing. I told myself that I’d try Les Exceptions if they came my way but I wasn’t going… Continue reading | 4 Comments
