Amouage Blossom Love Perfume Review

Amouage Blossom Love

There was a discussion on Twitter, which I now can’t find, where people shared their experience with disappointing foods. To my surprise, Turkish Delight kept being mentioned. Many Americans and Brits shared that they were so excited to sink their teeth into a Turksh Delight after its hype in “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” but were left with disappointment. Since this was such a subjective conversation, I just lurked but I absolutely do not agree. First of all, I firmly stand by what… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Perfume Review

Viktor & Rolf Bonbon

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

When I first say Viktor & Rolf Bonbon in a Duty Free store, I thought the bottle was some sort of deformed butterfly. (It was an overnight flight, OK). Well, it’s a glass bow and quintessential “pink juice”.

Bonbon smells like a lot of other things, especially things by Victoria’s Secret or celebrity perfumes from a decade ago. It opens with mandarin oranges in syrup with a side of cotton candy. Give it a few more minutes and… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Peche Cardinal is a lactonic peach. The opening peach schnapps and toasted coconut. This is accented by juicy, ripe purple berries and crushed fig leaves… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Hermes Hermessence Cedre Sambac Perfume Review

Hermes Cedre Sambac

One of my many character flaws is that I love the Hermès Hermèssence collection. I live for sheer, ephemeral things that are basically non-existent. According to online perfume platforms and other perfume-related reviews, this is a problem. But, it’s not for me. I think things that last forever on the skin are a nightmare; they’re oppressive. My attention span and patience aren’t equipped for marathon perfumes.

This year Hermès has launched additional perfumes in the Hermèssence collection. The names suggested “heavier” perfumes, but I’m a… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Chanel Les Eaux de Cologne Paris – Venise Perfume Review

Chanel Venise

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

If you followed by Instagram Stories this past summer, you already know that I wore Chanel Venise a lot. There’s a few reasons for this. The first reason was I moved and didn’t have access to all my perfumes. The second reason is because I genuinely love it. This is the sort of thing I wanted to wear all summer.

Chanel launched three EDTs in their Les Eaux de Cologne collection this past summer. I went by… Continue reading | 4 Comments
