EauPEN Thread – Favorite Designer Perfumes

Erykah Badu
Name your Top 5 Favorite designer perfume brands.
This is tough for me. When the word “favorite” is mentioned, it makes me nervous. I’m too noncommittal for blanket statements like that! So as of today, these are my five favorite designer perfumes. These are the brands that I own the most from and actually wear:

  1. Prada – I actually own a lot of Prada and I forget this. The original “Prada Amber” is one of my favorites. This may partially be because of memories or the

Mugler Les Exceptions Woodissime Perfume Review

Mugler Woodissime

Like many other designer brands, Thierry Mugler has also launched a line of “exclusive” (AKA more expensive) line-up of perfumes sold at select locations and costs a lot more than their other fragrances. I guess this shouldn’t surprise me since everyone has a more expensive, limited distributed line of perfumes all in uniform bottles. But, I guess this is also what surprised me. Mugler has seemed to always do their own thing. I told myself that I’d try Les Exceptions if they came my way but I wasn’t going… Continue reading | 4 Comments

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.

Perfume Deals Roundup – September 2017

Anne St. Marie

I’m trying so hard to limit my purchases this year. I’ve accumulated so much. I’ve downsized. Blah, blah, blah. But, do you have any idea how difficult it is to be a blogger in the realm of beauty/fragrance that doesn’t want to buy anything?! It’s difficult. There’s always new releases. There’s always a gift with purchase. There’s always a sale. There’s always a temptation! However, I’m making some improvements. I check my stash before I buy and I’ve unsubscribed from a lot of emails to resist temptations. But… Continue reading | 4 Comments
