Nateeva St. Martin Perfume Review

Nateeva St. Martin perfume review

The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

Earlier this month, I kicked off the beach theme with a line of perfumes inspired by islands, Nateeva. As the month ends, I’m close to reviewing them all. ₁ Our next stop is St. Martin:

Saint Martin is a tropical floral. It opens with a breeze of jasmine and hibiscus mixed with tart, fresh raspberries. The fragrance starts out as a white floral but eventually… Continue reading

Sarah Horowitz Perfect Coconut Milk EDP & Perfume Oil Review

Sarah Horowitz Coconut Milk perfume review

The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

The month isn’t over yet so you better believe I’m still going to talk about coconut perfumes. Beach perfumes don’t have to smell like coconuts and coconut perfumes don’t have to smell like the beach.

Her perfumes were my first real introduction to indie perfumery. Since trying her perfumes, I have tried hundreds of indie perfumes, many I have covered on this blog.

So, I’ve learned with DSH, there’s a massive catalog… Continue reading

Nateeva Jamaica Perfume Review

Nateeva Jamaica perfume review

The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

Out of the Nateeva line, Jamaica is one that seems the most “beachy” to me. That doesn’t mean that it necessarily smells like an actual beach but it smells more like perfumes marketed as tropical and beachy.

Jamaica opens with spicy, ozonic tropical florals over warm sand. It smells like an oceanic breeze through trees covered in flowering vines. There’s a brightness from citrus that fades rather quickly. At first, I thought Jamaica smelled like coconut. Then it started to… Continue reading | 2 Comments
