Burberry My Burberry Black Perfume Review

Burberry My Burberry Black

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

My Burberry Black is a flanker¹ to My Burberry. I’m sorry to disappoint. I don’t have a sample of the original so I can’t really do an accurate comparison. I had tried My Burberry before and remember liking it. Obviously, I didn’t like it enough to buy it, but I thought it was pleasant enough and fit with the Burberry brand.

To my surprise, My Burberry Black opens with pineapple. It’s ripe, sticky, sweet pineapple. So much pineapple!… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Precious Liquid Texture Collection Reviews

Precious Liquid Fresh Vetyver

I’ve been reviewing a new brand, Precious Liquid. This is a new perfume brand that offers three perfume collections (Exquisite, Pure and Texture¹) that contain three perfumes each. These are meant to wear alone or even to layer using the brand’s 3D Layering.

Precious Liquid markets all of their perfumes as unisex (because all perfumes are unisex). But, I’d say that the Texture Collection is more “traditionally masculine”.

Blue Agave

Notes listed include lime, blue agave, salted driftwoods, bay oil and sage.

Blue Agave is… Continue reading

Aromatherapy Associates Natural Perfume Review

Aromatherapy Associates

Can you believe it’s already September?! In a few months it’ll be a new year! I’ve already started back to graduate school. This is my final year. I look forward to receiving my Masters of Science but I also know that it’s going to be a very stressful year. To cope, I made a little deal with myself (one that popped into my head while receiving an excellent facial at Omorovicza‘s flagship spa in Budapest) – Get some sort of spa treatment or facial once a… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline Perfume Review

Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

It is so weird to me that Bvlgari keeps launching Omnia flankers while basically omitting the original Omnia from their lineup. For those that don’t know, the original Omnia is one of my favorite designer perfumes. It’s still available if you venture into the realm of online retailers or big box stores. But, it kills me that this soft, spicy woodsy tea scent isn’t readily available BUT all of its flankers are. I feel like there needs to be a new… Continue reading

Amouroud Dark Orchid Perfume Review

Amouroud Dark Orchid

It’s really odd how some perfumes connect with you. I’m sure if I spent some time in therapy or doing some sort of self-help workbook, I could probably come up with some conclusion as to why I’m drawn to certain perfumes more than others. My tastes are broad; I like perfumes from all genres. However, it seems like I’m not too picky when it comes to white floral and incense. I tend to like those over the top “femme fatale” sort of perfumes…or at least what I perceive… Continue reading | 4 Comments
