Thesis Natural Body Products Review (Rose Vanilla)

Thesis Beauty is an indie line of natural skincare and body products based in Massachusetts. They sent this rose lover three products to try:

Thesis Rose Body Scrub

Body Scrub in Rose Vanilla Sorbet

This is a salt scrub in a thick oil and butter base. It claims to be so moisturizing that most people don’t need to follow-up with creams/oils.

Appearance: It’s currently solid and some of the oils have “risen” to the top (it’s creamy). The base is a light pink with rose petals. The packaging… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Parfums Rosine Cologne Rose Ocean Perfume Review

Parfums Rosine Cologne de Rose Ocean

Parfums de Rosine Cologne Rose Océan is a new unisex perfume inspired by a rose growing near the ocean.

Rose Ocean opens as a bright citrus with a juicy blackcurrant. There’s an orange blossom in this that reminds me of grape jelly (don’t worry, it’s still an orange blossom). The heart is a jammy rose with humid white florals. Up until this stage, Cologne Rose Ocean really didn’t remind me of the sea. The heart isn’t aquatic in that perfumery sense of the “aquatic”… Continue reading

Phuong Dang Cryptic Extrait Perfume Review

Phuong Dang Cryptic

Phuong Dang is a line of niche perfumes founded by a Vietnamese visual artist that resides in Singapore. The Noses of the perfumers are French and people you’ve probably heard of. Months ago, I reviewed Liquid Red, a perfume that reminds me of fancy French cosmetics and partying all night. Being a rose lover, I decided to try another leather-rose in the line, Cryptic.

There’s not much to know about Cryptic other than it’s a dark, leather rose. It opens with dry/brut champagne aldehydes. At first… Continue reading

ROSE WEEK 2017 – An Aquatic Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 6 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

Perfume World has such a need for interesting “Nouveau Aquatics”. Don’t get me wrong, there are interesting aquatics in niche (like House of Matriarch Albatross, CB I Hate Perfume At the Beach 1966, etc.); I just think there is a genre that more niche brands… Continue reading
