Belle Fleur Mimosa Magnifica Candle Review

Belle Fleur Mimosa Magnifica

Belle Fleur Mimosa Magnifica is a fragrance in their Classic Floral Collection. I expected for Mimosa Magnifica to be a pretty, powdery and delicate floral. And this would have been nice, but Belle Fleur exceeded my expectations. Mimosa Magnifica is a powdery mimosa but it’s not delicate. It has a velvet-like richness.

Mimosa Magnifica is a powdery floral over a sweet amber. It reminds me of old fashioned French perfume, like mimosa and violets wafting in a haze of heady jasmine blossosm in full bloom. The… Continue reading | 7 Comments

NEST Fragrances Bamboo Candle Review

Nest Bamboo Candle

 

I haven’t reviewed a NEST candle in a long time. In fact, Bamboo is one of my favorites and I could have sworn that I already have on EauMG, but I haven’t. So, here you go…

Bamboo is a fresh, lush floral. It’s wet greens and cool, dewy florals. It’s like lemon-hue lilies with wet green leaves. It’s cool, watery greens and luscious flowers.

Aura Cosmic Candle Review

Aura Cosmic candle

I just used up an entire Aura Bubbly candle and was reminded of just how much I love this hand-poured candle line. And then I remembered that I still have an Aura candle in Cosmic, a delicious gourmand.

Cosmic smells like a rich, decadent, gourmet creamsicle. It’s a juicy winter orange with vanilla whipped cream. Aura managed to take the flavor of a familiar frozen treat and make it into a luxurious home fragrance. Cosmic doesn’t smell… Continue reading | 15 Comments

Belle Fleur Indochine Candle Review

Belle Fleur Indochine

If you want to avoid a serious lemming, then don’t read this review. If you want to know what luxury in wax form smells like, then keep on reading.

Belle Fleur Indochine is a sultry scent, an absolute stunner. It’s like a rich, powdery, honeyed floral. It’s this glorious jasmine over smoky, dark woods with a boozy vanilla sweetness. Indochine is what I’d call a  “dark jasmine”. It’s a smoky, sexpot jasmine paired with warm woods and an irresistible, sweet, animalic honey. If it were a personal… Continue reading | 4 Comments
