Coty Exclamation Cologne Perfume Review

Coty Exclamation Perfume

Drugstore Divas Week – 2016

This week I’m revisiting popular perfumes available at US drugstores. The sort of perfumes that many of us know but many of us perfume lovers completely ignore. 

If I were to survive some sort of post-apocalyptic nuclear holocaust situation, I feel there would be very little that I could contribute to rebuild society. When it comes to survival, my skills are rather useless. However, there’s something I have no doubt that I could do. And that’s do cave drawings or even reenactments… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Dana Navy Cologne Perfume Review

Dana Navy perfume

Drugstore Divas Week – 2016

This week I’m revisiting popular perfumes available at US drugstores. The sort of perfumes that many of us know but many of us perfume lovers completely ignore. 

There’s a critical window in childhood where things imprint on you, especially pop culture. This window of time one’s first exposure to what is cool or not. You’ll find yourself for years aspiring to be that. Then the world will cruelly remind you that that is no longer cool. As an adult, you look back and either laugh about… Continue reading | 5 Comments

Blooming Dream Herb Garden & Love Bird EDP Natural Perfume Reviews

Blooming Dream is an all-natural line of perfumes based in Portland, Oregon. The perfumes are inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with some of the perfumes’ ingredients coming from the perfumer’s own garden. It’s like “farm to vanity” perfumery.

I’m reviewing two of the perfumes that are available in the organic alcohol-based EDP Collection.

Blooming Dream Herb Garden

HERB GARDEN

Herb Garden with notes of hidcote pink lavender (my favorite), mandarin, sunflower, mimosa, tarragon, ginger lily, olive, zdravets, saffron, vanilla, patchouli  and bay. PERFUMER – Suzinn Weiss… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Etro Sandalo EDT Perfume Review

Etro Sandalo perfume

Spring has rubbed off on me. Over the past month I’ve focused on traditionally “pretty” perfumes such as soliflores. Looking at my own perfume collection, I realize that half of my collection includes pageant queens and the other half is a total freakshow. With perfume I tend to gravitate towards two genres: “more beautiful than reality” and “WTF”. As a designer perfume, one would expect for Etro Sandalo not to be in the later category, but I’m here today to tell you that is where it belongs… Continue reading | 6 Comments

LURK OM 011 Natural Perfume Oil Review

Lurk OM 011 perfume

LURK is a line of natural perfumes made in New York that I’ve been meaning to try since their launch in 2012. But, you know how it can be with so many launches; it’s easy to only focus on what is literally in front of your nose.

LURK OM 011 is a natural perfume centered around oud and is described as one of the most “hedonistic” perfumes in the brand’s line-up (which consists of ten perfumes).

Without reading the note lists or copy, I immediately… Continue reading | 4 Comments
