Sage Machado Onyx Perfume Oil Review

Sage Onyx Perfume

In the summer, I put together an updated guide to coconut perfumes. At the end of this post, I included my “must try” coconut perfumes. Sage Machado Onyx made the list. I realized that I have yet to review what I consider one of my favorite coconut perfumes.

Onyx, like its namesake, is “dark”. It’s unlike a lot of other coconut perfumes and perfume oils in that it showcases a darker side of coconut.  Onyx pairs the lactonic sweetness of coconut with smoke. It’s coconut with… Continue reading | 11 Comments

Blackbird Broken Glass EDP Perfume Review

Blackbird Broken Glass

Broken Glass is the newest perfume from Seattle-based indie line, Blackbird. It was described to me as a floral/femme fragrance, an unexpected addition to Blackbird’s lineup. I’ve spent a few months trying it. And it’s an odd fragrance because what I’m perceiving is unlike many of the reviews I’ve since read. And this is why I love perfume. There are so many varied perceptions and experiences¹.

Terveer Incense & Gardenia Perfume Oil Reviews

Terveer Incense

A few months ago, I was introduced to the Terveer line. It’s a line of perfume oils housed in a a luxurious refillable vessel. I reviewed Green, a fragrance that really lives up to its name. There are two more in the line and here’s my impressions:

This was like perfect weather with long shadows and vivid leaves. There were a few cold nights but overall, it was mild and well, perfect.

I went to a few fragrance events. Osswald had a Coolife event that I stopped by briefly. Aedes has… Continue reading | 16 Comments

Yves Rocher Vanille Noire EDP Perfume Review

Yves Rocher Vanille Noir

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Yves Rocher is one of those brands that I’m usually very happy with, but I don’t really buy it. Why? It’s only available online in the US and I forget about them. It’s that simple. When I travel elsewhere, I’ll stop in the store, sample a few things and even buy a few things and wonder why I don’t buy more from them. I usually like their shower gels and a few of their skincare items. However, I think… Continue reading | 8 Comments
