Zoologist Nightingale EDP Perfume Review

Zoologist Nightingale

 

Excellent marketing and copy can’t stop a perfume from morphing into whatever the wearer presumes about a perfume.  Zoologist Nightingale is a prime example for me. It’s a perfume inspired by Japanese spring with notes that sound dainty and delicate. Look at the bottle! It has a songbird wearing a kimono. Before wearing this, I’ve made a lot of assumptions about this fragrance. But, my assumptions are nothing like my experience with this pink juice. Nightingale is like an exaggerated, drag-like interpretation of femininity. I spray this on and… Continue reading

Perfume Playoffs – Cherry Blossom Perfumes

It’s spring! FINALLY. I had the flu for over a week and by the time I felt like going outside, there were pink blossoms everywhere. It was like coming out of hibernation. My senses are still rather dull but I have a craving for pretty pink perfumes.

Since I still can’t really smell anything, I thought it would be a good time to launch a feature that I’ve been wanting to write. Instead of writing an extensive guide to perfumes with a predominate note (like this… Continue reading | 12 Comments

EauMG – OK, so… Continue reading | 2 Comments

EauMG’s March 2017 Favorites

I don’t want to be one of those boring people that complain about the weather, but I’m going to be one of those boring people. The weather in March was so frustrating. We had an icestorm. The disgusting, tar-soaked ice piles lingered for weeks. It was cold and disgusting. All I wanted was spring and it couldn’t be found.

This was OK, because I needed to focus on finals. I wrapped up another term. Like weather, I know people get sick of hearing this too: Time flies… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Anti-Haul March 2017

A lot of people do “Anti-Hauls” on Youtube. If you aren’t familiar with these, these are videos where people talk about what they aren’t buying. With so many launches, I love the premise of this. It gives us a reason to talk about what’s new without actually participating in this makeup economy of “BUT THIS LIMITED EDITION THING!”.

Inspired by my fellow Lipstick Leaguer¹, Phyrra, I’ve decided to put together my own monthly Anti-Haul (sans Youtube/video because I can’t find the time nor do I appreciate the harassment).

I’m talking about things that have launched… Continue reading | 18 Comments
