Amouage Figment Man Perfume Review

Amouage Figment Man

Yesterday I reviewed Amouage Figment Woman, which is a traditionally “pretty” white floral perfume. From the copy and from my experience with Figment Woman, I expected Amouage Figment Man to be a very nice woodsy fragrance.¹ Never judge a fragrance by its bottle or its copy!

Figment Man is so familiar; yet, it isn’t. It doesn’t remind me of perfume. It opens with this glimmer of bitter lemon with a trail of nag champa incense (like the hippie stuff). And there’s so much dirt! It’s like… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Amouage Figment Woman Perfume Review

Amouage Figment Woman

Amouage has launched two new perfumes, Figment Woman and Figment Man.¹ They’re the two in the pretty aqua/blue bottles.

Natori Josie Perfume Review

Natori Josie

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Josie is the “junior’s line” by Pinay fashion-lingerie designer Josie Natori. One of my favorite designer perfumes is Natori, a dramatic va-va-voom floriental perfume. I thought Natori was a wonderful extension of the Natori brand. I actually didn’t realize that the Josie line had a perfume until a sample came with a gift with purchase. I really didn’t know what to expect with Josie. I know it’s a younger, more “boho” brand that Josie Natori still defines as “East… Continue reading | 4 Comments
