Providence Perfume Co. Tangerine Thyme Natural Cologne Review

 

Providence Perfume Co. Tangerine Thyme

Summer’s officially over and Providence Perfume Co. has launched a limited edition citrus cologne. I used to associate citrus with hot weather, but I have since realized they’re perfect for “day wear” during any season. In fact, I seem to appreciate the uplifting quality of citrus a lot more in the dead of winter just as much as┬áI do in the sweaty months of summer.

Tangerine Thyme opens as the juiciest citrus ever. It smells like when you get that first ripe… Continue┬áreading

A Beautiful Life Smitten Huile de Parfum Fragrance Review

A Beautiful Life Smitten Parfum review

A Beautiful Life Smitten perfume oil is described as “feminine, fresh, and sexy – like the blush of first love or the sultry promise of a summer night“. It is a tart citrus floral fragrance with an earthy base from New Jersey located hipster cosmetic/fragrance brand, A Beautiful Life or ABL.

When I first apply Smitten, I get peppery tangerine juice. It is a sparkling citrus and very easy to identify as tangerine. But, it has an earthy vibe… Continue┬áreading | 7 Comments

Burberry Weekend for Women EDP Perfume Review

Burberry Weekend perfume
The Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Fragrance

Burberry describes Weekend for Women as “sparkling citrus floral fragrance” based on the “the spirit of outdoor escapes” suggesting early 1900’s explorers. Burberry Weekend is a fragrance that I’ve always had around since its launch in the late 90’s. I have never reviewed it because I find it difficult to do so because I’m so used to it. It’s hard for me to think about it in a review sense/notes but more of an
