Amouage Lilac Love EDP Perfume Review

Amouage Lilac Love

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.

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

DSH Perfumes La Belle Saison Extrait Natural Perfume Review

DSH Perfumes La Belle Saison

For many, many years now, I’ve been a fan girl of the DSH Perfumes line. The brand has an extensive catalog that at times can be very overwhelming. But, it’s been my experience that no matter what I end up trying, I end up liking. Now there are exceptions, but those exceptions are always perfumes that I just “like” instead of “love” or “completely and totally obsessed with”. Dawn’s style agrees with me. I can’t imagine living in a world without her perfumes.

Providence Perfume Co. Love-In-A-Mist EDP Natural Perfume Review

Providence Perfume Love in Mist

The newest botanical perfume from Providence Perfume Co. is inspired by wildflowers. Love-In-A-Mist is a perfume inspired by the wildflower of the same name¹. I have no idea what this flower actually smells like but I can relate to the description of “barefoot summer walks through fields of flowers”.

Love-in-a-Mist opens as a heady, honeyed floral. It reminds me of a flower somewhere between lilacs and ylang-ylang. It’s indolic, peppery and powdery. My warning is that this opening could be “loud” to those that… Continue reading | 5 Comments
