Arquiste The Architects Club EDP Perfume Review

Arquiste The Architect's Club

The concept behind Arquiste The Architects Club is an interesting one. It’s inspired by Art Deco architects and a renovation that took place in the late 1920’s. The perfume focuses on the contrast of Victorian exteriors and sleek, modern interiors. Many perfumes have an inspiration; however, in the end, many concepts fall flat. The Architects Club doesn’t.

Kiko Milano has launched eleven shades in their Intense Colour Eye Pencil range. These are long-wearing pencil eyeliners. One… Continue reading

Bruno Fazzolari Jimmy EDT Perfume Review

Bruno Fazzalori Jimmy

Poets inspire perfume and perfume inspired poetry. Bruno Fazzolari Jimmy is a perfume inspired by New York school poet James Schuyler.

Jimmy opens as honeydew melons and roses in a florist’s fridge. Jimmy wears as a fresh, fruity floral. In the perfume world, this may sound repetitious but it isn’t. Jimmy is like a dewy violet and rose. Coquettish but not fickle. The dry-down is green and mossy but not in a classic chypre way. It actually reminds me of living moss – fresh moss… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Bath & Body Works Flashback Fragrances – Thoughts & Mini Reviews

From tattoo choker necklaces to denim overalls to mini backpacks, we can easily see that there is a wave of 90’s nostalgia in effect right now. Even Bath & Body Works is having a moment of 90’s nostalgia and has relaunched six “Flashback Fragrances”.

Bath & Body Works

What’s funny is that I was never into Bath & Body Works fragrances back in the day because they were so “mall” and I was so anti-mall in my youth. I was more about wearing perfume oils or trying to get my… Continue reading | 11 Comments
