Serge Lutens La Myrrhe EDP Perfume Review

Serge Lutens La Myrrhe

“So, what’s your type?”

It’s something, as far as people go, that I didn’t really ask myself. I like clever, funny folks. I like people that are going to get my corny puns. I like a person that may even laugh at that corny pun. But, when it comes to perfume, I have a type. I have a few types.

“My type? I like Greens so bitter they’ll make your nose bleed. I like Aldehydes as big as the hair on The Porter Wagoner Show and… Continue reading | 4 Comments

ScentStory 24 Gold Elixir & 24 Platinum Elixir EDP Perfume Reviews

Scentstory 24 Elixirs


Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

The best “cheapie” pleasant surprise that I’ve ever had with perfume has been with the ScentStory 24 series. I was amazed by the surprisingly luxurious amber, Gold. Platinum, a sugary rose, was equally delightful. They’re long-wearing and smell great while be available for under $50! That’s practically “free” in Perfumeworld.

ScentStory has recently expanded the line to include Elixirs. These are highly concentrated perfumes using more expensive ingredients. I know that may sound cliché as many brands claim this… Continue reading | 2 Comments

It’s not like a stewed fruit sweetness (like in many Serge Lutens) but more like sweet earth, like clay. The heart is boozy like dried, fruit-scented shisha… Continue reading

DSH Perfumes Fleuriste EDP Perfume Review

DSH Perfumes Fleuriste

I love carnation fragrance but I feel like there aren’t many to choose from. There’s a couple of old classics and there’s a few modern scents (that are less soliflore-y). When you think about how many rose soliflores there are, you’d expect more than a handful of carnations. But, that’s the way it is. Carnation is usually the back up singer.

One of my favorite indie brands is DSH Perfumes. In fact, the reason I was introduced to DSH was a search for carnation scents. I… Continue reading

EauMG’s Most Worn Perfume – Summer 2015 Edition

Most Worn Perfumes 15


When I was putting together this list of the most worn perfumes of summer 2015, I almost felt like I had some sort of amnesia. This summer felt so long. Thanks to my Favorites posts, I had some idea of what I wore the most. And also those posts helped me realize that there wasn’t something wrong with me or my memory. This was a super busy,  borderline disorientating summer for me.

It was our first summer on the East Coast. It’s… Continue reading | 12 Comments
