Hiram Green Arbole Arbole EDP Natural Perfume Review

Hiram Green Arbole ArboleYears ago, I was obsessed with finding a fragrance that was “creamy green”. I found it with Aftelier Haute Claire. That natural perfume was the perfect blend of bitter green notes like galbanum paired with creamy ylang-ylang and vanilla. That fragrance has since been discontinued, commencing a new search for “creamy green”. I’ve found it with Hiram Green Arbolé Arbolé, a balsamic “creamy green” fragrance.

This perfume opens with grassy greens and a hazy lavender. Arbolé Arbolé’s opening reminds me of late summer days spent on the… Continue reading | 2 Comments

EauMG’s February 2017 Empties

EauMG Feb 2017 Empties

February 2017 Lowbuy Update – I’m such a cheater. I ended up buying a “bundle” of Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks which were Buy 3 for $45.

Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb EDT Fragrance Review

Viktor Rolf Spicebomb

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Today I’m going to review a fragrance who’s packaging has probably put more people in detention than anything else: Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb. It seems like every six months there is a story that hits the news regarding someone held by TSA for suspicious goods only to find out it’s a bottle of Spicebomb¹.

I hate the bottle. And I’m not really the demographic for Spicebomb so I’ve never tried it. However, it gets brought up a lot… Continue reading | 6 Comments

The Lipstick League – Week of 2/27/17

Gladys Cooper

The Lipstick League – week of 2.27.17

Question of the Week: Do you plan to incorporate the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year (Greenery) into your beauty looks this year? If so, how?

EauMG’s Answer: Not really. It’s just not a flattering color on me. However, I did buy an eyeliner in Mexico that is very Greenery-ish. I’ve worn it once. Like I said, these sort of yellow-y greens aren’t flattering on me. But, as a fragrance, yes, I’m
