PURPLE FLOWERS WEEK 2017

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.

I’ve been writing on EauMG since 2008; it surprises me how… Continue reading | 2 Comments

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 a Popular Perfume

If you’re reading EauMG because you’re already really, really into perfume, then I’m sure you’ve heard of this fragrance.

And I also was amused that Kurkdjian was working on such accessible perfumes when he has his own brand.

Yves Rocher Vanille Noir

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Yves Rocher is one of those brands that I’m usually very happy with, but I don’t really buy it. Why? It’s only available online in the US and I forget about them. It’s that simple. When I travel elsewhere, I’ll stop in the store, sample a few things and even buy a few things and wonder why I don’t buy more from them. I usually like their shower gels and a few of their skincare items. However, I think… Continue reading | 11 Comments

Comme des Garcons x Pharrell Williams Girl EDP Perfume Review

CdG and Pharrell Williams Girl

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

The launching of Girl was a big deal for the “mainstream world” for a few reasons:

Reason 1- The the celeb in this case had enough sense to not only align themselves with a designer, but a designer line that produces a lot of good, trendy perfumes. AND a perfume that crosses over into mainstream/designer and niche. This makes folks take this perfume “more seriously”. This also makes it something that will be sold at stores… Continue reading | 8 Comments
