Chris Rusak Perfumes – Reviews of Io, 33 & Quasi Una Absurdia

Marlon Brando

Chris Rusak is a Los Angeles-based indie perfume brand (oh, and a person that is an artist and teaches at The Institute of Art and Olfaction too) that has launched a trio of new perfumes.

Unfortunately, I’ve been sitting on these for most of the summer. The “little” move across town, graduation, job hunting and travel really ate up my life. Long story short, I misplaced the samples but they weren’t ever misplaced (moving is so much fun). They were in a totally logical place… Continue reading

Mojo Magique Seer Perfume Review

Mojo Magique Seer

Mojo Magique is a Louisiana-based brand¹ with perfumes that really are under-the-radar and shouldn’t be! I’ve tried them all and highly recommend each of them (absinthe rose, yes, please!). And I’m reviewing Seer ² today to remind you that this is a good (and more affordable) niche brand that Perfume People should be trying.

Seer is an aromatic fragrance that reminds me of vintage masculines from the 1960’s and 1970’s. It opens with a cool blast of pine needles and licorice-like… Continue reading

Zoologist Civet Perfume Review

Zoologist Civet

Civet is my absolute favorite from the niche brand Zoologist. So, I feel horrible that I’m just now reviewing it! I said in 2016 in my yearly list,
If I were to choose a perfume of the woman I wish to become, it’d be Civet.
It’s been two years and this still hold true. Civet is the sort of aromatic meets oriental-style perfume that I’ve gravitated to since I started wearing perfume. It brings to mind vintage, classic perfumes and style, but in comparison to its… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Help a Blogger Out: Jen from My Beauty Bunny says “Let’s talk green beauty. Is there a green beauty brand you just LOVE?”

EauMG’s Answer: I don’t gravitate to green beauty fro moral reasons. I gravitate to things that I like because they smell good, work or feel good. If you have read EauMG, you already know that I cover some natural perfume brands. Some of my favorites are Aftelier, Providence Perfume Co. and

Blackbird Ophir Perfume Review

Blackbird Ophir review

OK, OK, so the inspiration of Blackbird Ophir is a fictional trade planet and some pulp paperback storylines. I’m fine with all of that. I’m not here to debate what I think a fictional trade planet should smell like, but I’ll say this. This fictional trade planet smells a lot like what is in this Seattle-based brand’s backyard.

If it were up to me to classify Ophir, I’d have to say it’s a woods fragrance. It smells like a forest floor in the Pacific Northwest. There’s damp… Continue reading | 4 Comments
