Opus Oils is an indie perfume brand located in Hollywood. If you dig through my archives, you’ll see that I have reviewed quite a few things from the brand. Spank is a perfume in the Fetish Collection. The brand works in mixed media compositions but does offer all-natural compositions as well. Spank is one of the all-natural perfumes.
Spank is animalic. Should that be any surprise with a name like “spank”?! Spank is a natural leather perfume. I admit at first, it’s odd. It’s camphoric/green but sweet… Continue reading

Harvey Prince Eau de Crème is an ice cream inspired perfume. Guess what? Research concludes that humans like ice cream because ice cream is good. Read the adcopy on Harvey Prince’s website for more info about how humans love ice cream.
Eau de Crème is a gourmand and that’s what I expect from a perfume inspired by sweet treats. It opens with pineapple and passion fruit “sorbet” (more like fruit punch) over patchouli bread pudding. As you can imagine, this is… Continue reading | 2 Comments
