EauMG’s 2015 List – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

2015 was a year of so many changes for me. I mean, I moved across the country. This takes some adjustment. We live in a different region. We have different jobs. Even our possessions are different because we got rid of mostly everything before the big ‘ole transcontinental move. This year has been such a blur. I can’t remember what happened or didn’t happen because so much happened.

Regarding the blog and perfume, I’ve been lazy. I’ve been more interested in wearing and enjoying the perfumes that I already own. I have been behind on new launches. There are too many… Continue reading | 19 Comments

Juliette Has a Gun Gentlewoman EDP Perfume Review


Juliette Has A Gun Gentlewoman

Gentlewoman is the newest perfume from Juliette Has a Gun. It’s a “masculine fragrance dedicated to women”. It’s a modern “eau de cologne”. This sort of marketing usually irks me for many reasons.

I had said in my 6th Blogiversary post that I’d like to start doing a feature where I revisit perfumes to see if my “eaupinions” have changed. I said I wasn’t afraid to eat crow…and I’m not.

In November, I revisited some spicy scents that I’ve previously reviewed. So on this Thanksgiving let’s see if I’m going to eat any crow…

Eating Crow – September 2014

Crow

I had said in my 6th Blogiversary post that I’d like to start doing a feature where I revisit perfumes to see if my “eaupinions” have changed. I said I wasn’t afraid to eat crow…and I’m not.

I think the best way to handle this new monthly feature is to resniff and wear 4-5 perfumes that I’ve reviewed in the past to see if my thoughts on these perfumes have changed. In 6+ years, I’m sure there will be some crow eating.

So, let’s getting… Continue reading | 2 Comments
