NEST Dahlia & Vines EDP Perfume Review

Nest Dahlia and Vines

We all have a genre of perfumes that we struggle with. That may be an understatement because I think most of us have GENRES that are difficult for us to wear. The reasons can be as simple as we simply don’t like them because they remind us of a time in our lives or a person that we’d rather forget.

Exotic Island Perfumer Orquidea Absoluta

Living in a place where some days the air is too difficult to breathe and in the summer the streets smell like rotting garbage, it’s hard not to view an island in the Caribbean covered in  rain forests and sandy beaches as anything but paradise. Because if we measure paradise by fruits and fauna, Puerto Rico could be paradise¹. The Exotic Island Perfumer is an indie perfume brand based in Puerto Rico.
