The Lipstick League – week of 1.23.17

Question of the Week: Which fragrance have you been wearing the most this winter? (If you don’t wear fragrance, tell us about the body lotion or body wash you’ve been using the most this winter.)

EauMG’s Answer: This winter has been more boring that winters of the past. Frankly, I haven’t felt like wearing perfume. I’ve been sampling new things but at night, I’ve been keeping it classic/comfortable with perfumes like Chanel

Smell Bent Winterrific 2014 Perfume Collection Review

Smell Bent has launched their limited edition perfume collection, Winterrific, just in time for the holidays. These are new takes on Smell Bent’s old holiday favorites.

Here’s my reviews for all four in this collection:

Smell Bent Dr. Dreidel 3000

Dr. Dreidel 3000 with notes of oud, Malaysian sandalwood, guaiacwood, hiba, “designer musk”, vetiver and amber incense.

Every winter, Smell Bent makes a “dreidel” fragrance. I remember Dr. Dreidel from 2010. It was a spicy green perfume that reminded me of Drakkar Noir. This one is really different. Dr. Dreidel… Continue reading | 2 Comments

4160 Tuesdays A Kiss by the Fireside EDP Perfume Review

4160 Tuesdays A Kiss by the Fireside

I was given a sample of this by a perfume pal, I knew nothing of the perfume and very little about the brand. I hadn’t read a note list or a story of inspiration. I sniffed it and thought, “Oh, he’s too old for you!” I immediately had an image of a 20 year old dating someone at least 3 decades older than them. It was a mix of “young” fragrances and the sort of fragrance that a guy wanting to pick up… Continue reading | 5 Comments

EauMG’s Guide to Perfumes Inspired by Snow

snow perfumes

I grew up in the Southeast and I never remember the heat bothering me. As an adult, it does. I’m now that person in Seattle that complains about the heat and starts sweating as soon as the temps rise over 70 degrees. For the most part, I enjoy summer but I don’t like the constant dehydration headache and difficulty falling asleep at night.

While writing this, it’s 1 am and still 80 degrees in my house. I feel like rebelling against summer (even though I’m sooo not… Continue reading | 22 Comments
