Chloe Love Story Perfume Review

Chloe Love Story

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Throughout the years, there have been Chloé perfumes I’ve enjoyed wearing (like the powdery Love, Chloé). I’ve thought that the brand has done a good job of matching fragrances to their image. This French fashion house has been around for ages and now leans more “rich, young California socialite” than it used to. Their more recent fragrances seem to reflect this but I feel like Love Story really strayed from what I think of Chloé as a fashion house… Continue reading | 2 Comments

It’s an annual tradition on EauMG to feature “purple flowers” on the week of Nowruz/Vernal Equinox. “Purple flowers” are what I call flowers that (usually) have purple blossoms and bloom in spring: lilacs, violets, iris, heliotrope, hyacinth and wisteria (when I’m feeling generous). These are the sort of florals that make me think of spring. Plus, it gives me an excuse to talk about some of my favorite floral notes.

The last few Amouage launches haven’t really interested me. But, when I… Continue reading | 4 Comments
