Initio Parfums Rehab Perfume Review

Initio Parfums Rehab

French fragrance house Initio Parfums isn’t a new brand, but it’s new-to-me. They’ve been around for a few years and have recently been stocked at fancy places in the United States. I did a Quick Sniff of the brand and Rehab, the newest from the brand and in their Hedonist collection, was one that stood out to me.¹ (I’m a Taurus so of course, something in “the Hedonist collection” would stand out to me).

Rehab opens as sweet and fruity with bergamot and something that reminds me… Continue reading

Ilsa Infinite No. 1 Perfume Review

Ilsa Infinite No. 1

I first “met” Ilsa through Twitter. ¹ Mrs. Scents (Ilsa) impressed me because she was so knowledgeable on top of expressing her love of perfume.

Atkinsons Jasmine in Tangerine Perfume Review

Atkinsons Jasmine in Tangerine

Atkinsons is one of those newly revived perfume houses. It’s a British perfume house that now offers some classics as well as additional contemporary perfumes.  Let me start out with this disclaimer – This perfume has been the only experience that I’ve had with the line and it’s in the Contemporary Collection.

Jasmine in Tangerine opens as the sort of jasmine that reminds me of hairspray. There’s a bit of tangerine peel. Something about this perfume comes across as a “period piece”. It really reminds me… Continue reading | 2 Comments
