NEST Sicilian Tangerine & White Narcisse Candle Review

OK, I’ve had a really busy Sunday organizing and cleaning, but I thought I’d post something anyway. Here’s my “mini reviews” of two home fragrances from NEST.

NEST Sicilian Tangerine

Sicilian Tangerine – Notes listed include Sicilian tangerine, bergamot, mango and passion fruit.

This is a very nice tropical fruit tangerine. I want it blended in ice with rum and brought to my poolside lounger STAT ;)

It’s a fresh citrus with a sweet, tropical mango and passion fruit that doesn’t remind me of Sicily but the… Continue reading | 2 Comments

The Lipstick League – week of 8.4.14

Question of the Week: What is the one step in your daily makeup routine that you dislike the most? What is the one step you love the most?

Jazmin Sarai Neon Graffiti EDP Perfume Review

Jazmn Sarai Neon Graffiti

Jazmin Saraï is a new niche Canadian perfume line that inspired by scent and sound. Earlier this year, I wrote a review of Otis & Me, a perfume inspired by Otis Redding’s “Cigarettes and Coffee”. Neon Graffiti is the modern floral out of the quartet that is inspired by M.I.A.’s “Sunshowers”.

Neon Graffiti opens with bitter tomato leaves and grapefruit zest. Cool spices and crisp, garden greens. The heart is a dewy, cool floral. This heart is familiar but I can’t figure out… Continue reading
