Prada Candy Florale EDT Perfume Review

Prada Candy Florale

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I’ve loved the original Prada Candy since first sniff. In fact, I still wear that perfume frequently. It’s a sweet benzoin-iris that is more complex than it’s namesake. Like always, I avoid flankers out of fear of disappointment, especially when it’s of a perfume that I adore. One time at a duty-free shop, I sniffed Candy Florale and was majorly disappointed. I decided to revisit since that was during an abusive international flight and in all fairness… Continue reading | 4 Comments

NEST Dahlia & Vines EDP Perfume Review

Nest Dahlia and Vines

We all have a genre of perfumes that we struggle with. That may be an understatement because I think most of us have GENRES that are difficult for us to wear. The reasons can be as simple as we simply don’t like them because they remind us of a time in our lives or a person that we’d rather forget. Sometimes perfumes feel like wearing shoes a half size too small. They only work for short periods of time but they make us feel uncomfortable. Other times… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing (Two) Popular Perfumes

A month ago, I went through and organized perfume samples. I have a lot of stuff that I should review, stuff I may review and stuff I’m never going to review.

So, here’s my quick impressions of these two… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Aerin Lauder Rose de Grasse EDP Perfume Review

Aerin Lauder Rose de Grasse

Rose Week 2016

Last week, I mentioned (or rambled) on Twitter that I don’t understand the AERIN line. This came after the news of Estee Lauder launching a “Millennials” brand, Estée Edit that will be exclusive to Sephora. This new brand will be targeted to the 18-34 year old demographic according to WWD. I understand why Lauder is doing this. They want a younger audience but I don’t know how it will go for them. I feel… Continue reading | 15 Comments

Parfums DelRae Coup de Foudre EDP Perfume Review

Parfums DelRae Coup de Foudre

Synesthesia is a popular topic when it comes to perfume. Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon where there is an involuntarily response to one sensory stimuli that may result in activating another sensory pathway (like associating a color with a grapheme/letter or associating a taste/flavor with a word/sound). In PerfumeWorld, there’s often discussion about scents and colors. Overall, synesthesia is said to be a rare phenomenon, but it seems like in PerfumeWorld it’s more common than it seems in the general population. My thought is that… Continue reading | 4 Comments
