Eric Buterbaugh Oud Florals

Eric Butterbaugh EB FLORALS has launched a new collection of three oud florals. Last year, I reviewed the original EB FLORALS, a line of floral perfumes inspired by Eric’s love of flowers. (FYI – He’s a floral designer based in Los Angeles).

So, let’s get to this new collection that highlights flowers with oud.

Amouroud Dark Orchid Perfume Review

Amouroud Dark Orchid

It’s really odd how some perfumes connect with you. I’m sure if I spent some time in therapy or doing some sort of self-help workbook, I could probably come up with some conclusion as to why I’m drawn to certain perfumes more than others. My tastes are broad; I like perfumes from all genres. However, it seems like I’m not too picky when it comes to white floral and incense. I tend to like those over the top “femme fatale” sort of perfumes…or at least what I perceive… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Coqui Coqui Flor de Mayo and Coco Coco Reviews

As I discussed in my review of a few Shanghai Tang perfumes, I like to buy perfumes when I travel to be my olfactory souvenirs. When I was in Mérida, Mexico¹ I ended up buying the mini sets of Coqui Coqui perfumes at their boutique. I actually did something I never do: I didn’t smell them. I just bought them because A. I was on vacation B. there was a gorgeous perfume boutique and C. the prices weren’t so bad.

Here I am many months later, finally sniffing them.

Montale Tropical Wood

Like so many other Montale perfumes, a name is just a name. If you’re trying Tropical Wood in hope of some sort of “tropical woods”, you’ll probably be disappointed. Now if you try the perfume because you think the note list sounds good, then you probably won’t be disappointed. Tropical Wood is like a fruity rose and leather. This is a combo that I didn’t even know that I wanted in my life until I tried this.

It’s fruits and leather. And for some reason, I’m all about… Continue reading

Terveer Incense & Gardenia Perfume Oil Reviews

Terveer Incense

A few months ago, I was introduced to the Terveer line. It’s a line of perfume oils housed in a a luxurious refillable vessel. I reviewed Green, a fragrance that really lives up to its name. There are two more in the line and here’s my impressions:

INCENSE 

Incense is like a smoky, sweet incense. It’s exactly the sort of fragrance that I’m craving in late fall. It’s an effervescent, citrus-hued frankincense over exotic smoky woods. What I like about Incense, is that there’s… Continue reading | 4 Comments
