Week of June 26th-July 3rd
Happy 4th of July!
This week I’ve learned that citrus isn’t so bad in perfume, especially if it is grounded by moss. I also learned that Monsieur Balmain is awesome. This week I have been all about smoky fragrances, the BBC Perfume documentary, Art Deco, pine needles, and volumizing mascara.
I hope everyone in the U.S. is enjoying their 3 day weekend. I say wear an American perfume to celebrate!
Here’s what has been happening in the world wide web of fragrance:
Jane at Daly Beauty talks about her favorite “green” perfumes. And yes, you need them all. They’re classics.
Carrie at Eyeliner On a Cat reviews one decadent, natural perfume from Aftelier, Cacao, and it sounds good.
Olfactoria reviews Anya’s Garden Amberess and there is a give-away! Get over there before the 5th!
Marla at Perfume-Smellin’ Things talks about “slow noses“. I know you have a favorite. Share them with her!
It’s EstéeFest over at Redolent of Spices and Parfümerien. Check out JoanElaine’s Youth Dew Facts and Olenska “does the Dew”. Oh, I think we all have or had Youth Dew issues…
Scent of the Day reviews one of the best budget fragrances ever. Can we talk MAC into bringing it back? I hope so.
Gaia at The Non-Blonde reviews one of my favorite eau de colognes from Guerlain, but it has a name that I hate to say!
Undina at Undina’s Looking Glass tries out a few linden perfumes. Do you have a favorite with this note?
And EauMG’s things to talk about list:
Tomorrow 4711 will launch a new fragrance. And it will be 4/7/2011 in Euro-date…
I heard that Odori and Bois 1920 will be no more. Is this just a rumor? I don’t know. With those price points, I’m not surprised.
BBC aired their 1st episode of their Perfume Documentary. I suggest that you watch it if you can. I can’t wait for the next episode.
Basenotes announced that Thierry Mugler will be launching “foody” versions of some of their already foody perfumes. Hmm…
