What people be saying about EauMG:

Allure.com says EauMG is a “beauty tweeters we can’t get enough of”- check it out!

About EauMG: Established in 2008. EauMG is a perfume blog created by Victoria Jent, a serious fume addict. The purpose of EauMG is to honestly inform others of the many bitch’n beauty and frivolous fragrance items all over this globe.

About Victoria: A broad from Nashville who now resides in downtown Seattle with her sweetheart and two smooshed-faced dogs, Frink and Moxi. Victoria is the proud owner of Ajent Communications, a boutique communications firm. In 2013, she opened Beatnik Emptiness, an alt-cult boutique that sells fashions, accessories and smelly goods. She’s a workaholic that likes to do all of the things. But, really she wants to grow up and be a horror hostess.

Victoria likes cooking, terrible B-films, global textiles, dim sum, making lists, feminists, caviar, granny boots, full-coverage lipstick, fragrance (obviously) and Nitzer Ebb haircuts.

Victoria doesn’t like dogs with normal noses, people that don’t recycle, cars without mufflers, scuffs on my boots, cheap shoes, A cappella, mint-flavored lip products and the patriarchy. 

Victoria’s other hobbies include collecting records, foraging mushrooms, cooking and then eating, drinking fancy beverages, wandering around Seattle looking for trouble, chatting with bus drivers and attending all of the drag shows. She is trying to take up knitting but needs Adderall to make this work.

Because you need to meet my dogs:

Frink the Frug

About Frink the Frug: Frink is brindle permanent puppy that is half French bulldog and half pug. We adopted him when he was a puppy from a chain-smoker in a rustic logging town. He was a cute but terrible little puppy. He is incredibly stubborn and we blame this on the Frenchie side. You would not believe how stubborn this dog is. He loves me more than any other human. He probably hates you. But, you won’t hate him because his wags his tail to RuPaul’s voice and loves to watch the Wendy Williams Show.

Moxi Brown

About Moxi Brown: Moxi was supposed to be Delta Bark but she is too stupid to learn a new name. So we call her Moxi Brown. Moxi was adopted from the Humane Society on the Oregon coast. She is a little smooshed-face pound puppy of unknown origin. She is possibly a gargoyle or a vampire stuck in bat form. She’s a badass and a pseudo-hermaphrodite.  And there is a bullet pellet under her chest because she is one tough mama that is 1000% cooler than your dog. She only likes masculine types and doesn’t seem to like me despite my awesomeness. In fact, I think she is plotting to kill me so that she can spend more time with my husband and claim my side of the sofa as her own.

  1. Victoria-
    Ok. You ready for a little story? I can’t remember how I found you, but you’ve been one of my bookmarked sites for several months and I haven’t looked for a while, but tonight while I was waiting for a burned copy of this seasons Mad Men to respond to Quick Time (dreaded rainbow ball on Mac spins and spins…) I decided I’d see your latest make-up look and read one of your scent reviews….as I got to lookin around, I thought to myself, “who is this person? we have such similar preferences in all things scentual and beautifying and I like her descriptions…” So I read your “About” section and I just smiled to myself as I read that you work as a speech therapist because that’s what I’m currently working towards! I’m 38 and just got my BA in speech/language therapy and finally feel like I know what I want to do for a living (at least for the next few years-who knows?). So, now I’m in the process of applying to grad school. Anyway, I’ve never written someone I don’t know, I’m not a blogger, I only have like 10 bookmarked sites, 50 friends on facebook, and I hope this hasn’t bored your mascara off. If you feel like responding, I’m curious to know where you went to school and how you felt about the program. Otherwise,
    thanks for a really great site!
    Jenny H.

    • You haven’t bored me at all! I’d love to talk to a fellow speechie :) I love speech but I don’t always love it since my personality is a bit different than those that I work with. What I love is working with social language and with those with autism spectrum disorders. That’s my niche :) If you don’t mind, I’ll email you directly.

    • Oh, a Frenchie! Love, love smushed faced babies. I think Frink needs a buttermilk brother, a Frenchie.
      Thanks for reading :)

  2. Your site is lovely….and you are more beautiful than ever.
    Jas led me here….
    and I can’t wait to read more of your musings.

    p.s. I just bought Kilian’s Liasons Dangereuses-Typical Me, for spring and summer….and come this fall I will get their Incense Oud….I love smoky fragrances most of all…so any recommendations are welcome!

    • :) I miss you guys.

      Smoky fragrances are my favorite fragrances. Have you tried Kilian Rose Oud? I can email you some suggestions. Right now, I’m thinking Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche, 10 Corso Como, Nasomatto Black Afgano, Tauer Lonestar Memories, and even Bvlgari Black.

  3. Hi Victoria!
    I recently discovered your youtube channel and blog, and I must say, I love perfumes, but the way you review and express your love towards them is almost poetic and makes me love them even more! Sometimes if I own a perfume you are reviewing, I will sit and smell it while you describe the notes trying to catch them too! haha! you are like a perfume love novelist! =p
    In one of your videos you said that you love Patchouli… have you tried Karma from Lush Cosmetics? I think you would love it so much! Perhaps you can do a video about it? would love to hear you talk about it! =)

  4. Love your dogs face! Our family has two rescue dogs.
    Can you delete one of my comments on the Creed Love in Black post for me please? I am pretty tired and messed up my backlink code to my website. I am using a link to your blog on my website in my description of Creed Love In Black. I like to fine unique blogs with good information. I hope you will post my corrected link. I have posted another below.(This backlink stuff will make you go cross eyed)
    Thank you
    Katherine
    Creed Love In Black

  5. Hehehe. I had to snoop on your “about” section to see if you mentioned being German, too. ;)

    Come for the curiosity, stay for the adorable pugs! Haha. My two dogs have normal noses, but I love smooshy pugs, too. Amazing how many people I know in the Seattle area who have pug families!

      • They accept the title of “pound puppy” as well but I’m pretty certain that Moxi is not a dog. She is a bat or a gremlin. She’s something out of a Lovecraft story!

    • No German but Polish and Armenian and some Mediterranean :)

      Normal noses are good if they have personality. Plus, it’s a bonus when a dog doesn’t overheat at 60 degrees!

      I know! When we first moved here we couldn’t get over how many people are in the pug club. I think it’s because of the weather. They can handle the mild weather and they can’t do heat. Plus, lots of weirdos out here and we like our mutants.

  6. Hi, and thanks for following me on Twitter. I am super excited to find you. Also a fellow writer in the PNW. I’m just starting my perfume journey, but I already feel like I have sniffed out my calling. The PNW feels like a great place for a girl who loves smells and it seems you’re discovering that, too!
