Mistral Verbena Flower EDP Perfume Review

Mistral Verbena EDP Perfume Review

Mistral Verbena Flower (Fleurs de Verveine) perfume is a vibrant herbaceous citrus fragrance resembling lemon verbena. This is a light fragrance that is clean and refreshing for summer wear.

Unfortunately I am sampling Mistral Verbena in the chillier months. My house is cold; my feet are frozen. All I can think about is Busgrogg, cashmere, and incense-like fragrances. Mistral Verbena isn’t a fall or cooler weather fragrance at all. It’s a light, refreshing fragrance. I feel like if I sampled Verbena in… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Sula Sun-Kissed Citrus Perfume Review

Sula Sunkissed Citrus perfume

Sula Sun-Kissed Citrus perfume is a feminine fruity citrus fragrance created by Susanne Lang. The name “Sun-kissed Citrus” is very fitting for this fragrance! It is a very “sunny” citrus fragrance.

At first spritz, Sun-Kissed Citrus is a very tart citrus with the zest of grapefruit. This fragrance is feminine with juicy citrus. It smells of grapefruit and lemon zest and tart yuzu juice. This isn’t the tartest citrus fragrance I’ve ever tried. There is something much more “mellow” in this Sula fragrance… Continue reading | 10 Comments

Annick Goutal Eau du Sud Perfume Review

Annick Goutal Eau du Sud review

I love Annick Goutal Eau du Sud for summer wear. This is such an energizing citrus fragrance. It’s a nice “salty” citrus.

At first Eau du Sud is a bergamot and grapefruit bomb. This isn’t especially special or ground breaking. It really smells like when I put a dab of L’Aromarine Bergamote oil on one wrist and a dab of L’Aromarine Grapefruit oil on the other and rub my wrists together. It’s a “rugged” citrus, grapefruit blend. It’s the… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Hermès Un Jardin Après La Mousson Perfume Review

Hermes Apres la Mousson

Food & Fragrance/ Fragrance Review & Recipe:

Hermès Un Jardin Après La Mousson was launched in 2008 and created by Jean-Claude Ellena. This is the third in the “Jardin” series (a collection that I love). I have been wanting this scent since I sniffed it in a Hermès boutique back in 2008. I liked it but not enough to leave with it back then. Not too long ago, my husband purchased this for me as a gift. I’m happy that I have it… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Spray Perfume Review

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange

Fragrance & Food:

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange wasn’t what I expected it to be at all. I wanted rugged citrus rind/zest mixed with the sweet juices of a blood orange. I wanted something to pick me up in the dead of winter and to be refreshing in the middle of summer. Nope. Instead with this one, I got too much of  juicy berries. It isn’t a bad fragrance, it just wasn’t what I expected.

First things first, I’m not a huge… Continue reading | 6 Comments
