EauPEN Thread – Favorite Coconut Perfumes

Yvonne de Carlo on beach

What are your favorite coconut perfumes?

A few years ago, I put together a comprehensive guide of coconut-centric perfumes (which I’m sure is outdated now). That was a guide so I didn’t really talk about what I like in that post.

I’m one of those people that for some reason likes coconut fragrances. I know they’re “cheap” since that lactonic, creamy scent is associated with functional fragrances like sunscreen and conditioners. It’s also a common flavoring. But, I can’t… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Chris Rusak Timbre Perfume Review

Chris Rusak Timbre perfume

I genuinely enjoy writing about perfume and my impressions of them. However, it’s a bit difficult for me to write about Timbre from indie brand Chris Rusak. Why? Because the brand’s description is absolutely accurate. EauMG has existed since 2008 and I can only remember a few perfumes that I’ve tried where I thought the brand did a better job of explaining the perfume than I could or any other perfume blogger/writer/hobbyist could. I’m not being arrogant. Let’s be real, most perfume descriptions are minimal or try to sell you on… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Tauer Tauerville Fruitchouli Flash Perfume Review

Tauer Tauerville Fruitchouli Flash perfume

Oh, the fruitichouli perfume…it’s been like 20 years of this. What is “this”? Well, it’s a type of perfume that pairs fruits and patchouli, usually with about 10 tablespoons of sugar per 1/3 oz of alcohol-based perfume.

If you bought designer perfumes, you could either choose from the Good Witch, fruity floral, or the Bad Witch, fruitichouli. These were your only options unless you bought niche… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Robert Piguet Notes Perfume Review

Piguet Notes perfume review

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.

Well, after trying Notes, I… Continue reading

Acqua di Parma Chinotto di Liguria Perfume Review

Acqua di Parma Chinotto di Liguria perfume review

I haven’t really kept up with many recent perfume launches. And when I say recent, I don’t mean things in the past month…or even the past six months. I’m talking like the past few years. It became too overwhelming to try new things when there were new things being launched every single day. When I stopped caring about new launches (shocking, I know, I have a perfume blog), I found myself feeling happier and more… Continue reading | 2 Comments
