Parfums de Rosine Rose des Neiges EDP Perfume Review

Rosine Roses des Neiges

 

Parfums Rosine’s newest perfume is a fragrance inspired by snow, Rose de Neiges. It’s supposed to bring to mind a rose garden in frost. As someone that loves cool fragrances and roses, I couldn’t wait to try this one. I feel like the fragrance industry is really lacking in the area of cool or “aquatic” roses. Is Rose de Neiges the rose I’ve been waiting for?

Rose de Neiges reminds me of snow cream. It’s a linear fragrance and if… Continue reading | 7 Comments

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing (Two) Popular Perfumes

A month ago, I went through and organized perfume samples. I have a lot of stuff that I should review, stuff I may review and stuff I’m never going to review. I thought I’d give two scents that were free with a Sephora purchase a try. I’ve been neglecting my Mainstream Monday feature but that’s mainly because I’m lazy and haven’t been to a department store in a very, very long time. So, here’s my quick impressions of these two… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Bourbon French Parfums La Vie Nouvelle EDT Perfume Review

Mary Brian

 

If you love perfume and if you are (or are ever) in New Orleans, you really need to check out this little perfume house, Bourbon French Parfums. You will leave with something. Everyone does. You’ll probably leave with a lot of things, but the prices are really affordable. You can leave with like five bottles for the price of one bottle of European niche perfume.

I’ve tried a few from the brand and I’m attracted to their florals. There’s a nice vintage-y quality… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Aroma M Geisha Blanche Perfume Oil Review

aroma M Geisha Blanche

I know it’s cliché, but when it gets hot like this in the summer I want to wear perfumes that smell clean. I want to smell like fancy soap. aroma M Geisha Blanche is one of those “fancy soap” florals.

Geisha Blanche is a clean, heady floral that opens with fresh citrus aldehydes. The heart is a soapy floral of spicy hyacinth with heady white lilies and jasmine. Geisha Blanche is rather linear. It wears as this clean, green floral and eventually fades away into… Continue reading | 3 Comments

Humiecki & Graef Eau Radieuse EDT Perfume Review

Humiecki & Graef Eau Radieuse

You guys know that I like the Humiecki & Graef line just because I like their insane-o inspirations. I think perfume needs that. I want more Dadaist perfumes. Anyway, Eau Radieuse doesn’t really have a bizarre-o inspiration. It’s an attempt to make a “futuristic eau de cologne”. I was hoping it would be a sci-fi eau do cologne but they didn’t consult me beforehand.

Eau Radieuse opens as lemon and mint in chilled mineral water. This fragrance is chilled and mentholated. There’s… Continue reading
