Diptyque Oyedo Perfume Review

Diptyque Oyedo

After a hiatus due to moving and traveling, I have decided to bombard this perfume blog with “weird eau de colognes” this week. It’s hot, humid and gross. I want to smell fresh and clean but with something that is a little more interesting than the usual. Like Mugler Hot Cologne, Diptyque Oyédo is a citrus with a twist.

Thierry Mugler Hot Cologne Perfume Review

Mugler Hot Cologne

Les Exceptions is the more “luxurious” collection of Mugler fragrances. There’s woods, florals, leather, and of course, there’s a “cologne”. I don’t want to cloud this review with my love of Mugler Cologne, but I feel like I can’t review this without talking about the original Mugler Cologne

One of my favorite “colognes” and fragrances for summer is Mugler Cologne. It’s like a traditional eau de cologne, but a little weird (OK, maybe a lot of weird since the “S note” is rumored… Continue reading

Montale Sweet Peony

Question of the Week: What’s your favorite summer lip color?

EauMG’s Answer: Lol, all of them. You guys know that I have a lipstick problem. You can see that in my Instagram Stories. In the summer, I’ll wear anything. Some of my favorites are oranges, orange-reds, yellow-based browns, mauves, magentas, sparkling lip gloss…you see, all of it! However, I have been drawn to jelly/sheer lip shades recently. What are your favorites?

St. Clair Scents Perfume Review Roundup

St. Clair Scents is a new indie perfume line located in Vermont.

When I posted my samples of St. Clair Scents on Instagram Stories, someone responded with “It’s Chef Keller’s butter lady’s perfumes!” with a heart emoji. I was completely confused by this. After doing a little more research, it made sense. The perfumer, Diane St. Clair is an owner of a homestead creamery that does supply Chef Thomas Keller (The French Laundry, etc.) as well as other well-known restaurants with butter.¹ Diane says that she approaches fragrance like she does her artisanal creamery… Continue reading | 2 Comments
