My interest in trying Piguet Notes is all the reviews over at Fragrantica that say it smells like the 80’s. And not just the 80’s, but like an 80’s deodorant stick. And I thought to myself, “Yes, I want to smell like an 80’s deodorant stick, please.” It was 100 degrees last weekend. I wish all the armpits shoved in my face on the crowded trains were wearing something that smelled like an 80’s deodorant stick.

Lemon Liada has what I want from a citrus perfume… Continue reading | 4 Comments
Lubin Epidor was a perfume originally launched in 1912. Is this 2017 relaunch anything like the original? I highly doubt it. Anyway, this perfume is inspired by harvesting wheat and the French countryside. Glamour, non?
Epidor opens as a white floral with a sweet, sticky grape jelly. And there’s a lot of baby powder. As it wears, the jasmine and orange blossom really blooms. It’s heady with stone fruit undercurrents (like plum). As it wears, there’s an addition of a white musk. Now the base of this fragrance is a pleasant… Continue reading
