Providence Perfume Co. Rose Bohème EDP Perfume Review

Providence Perfume Co. Rose Boheme

Rose Week 2012

My first experience with Providence Perfume Co. Rose Bohème was during the Summer of Peace, Love and Patchouli Event hosted by Monica of Perfume Pharmer in 2011. At that time, I had an unlabeled vial of this stuff and it didn’t work on my skin at all. You can read my initial impressions here. I knew that I had to go back and try this stuff. The perfumes that confuse me at first are the… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Envoyage Nectars des Îles EDP Perfume Review

Envoyage Nectar des Iles EDP

I love perfumes that start with an idea and execute that idea. Envoyage Perfumes Nectars des Îles is one of those perfumes

“Excuse me! Wait. Excuse me!”

I hear this and keep on walking down the steep hill with two smooshed face creatures pulling my shoulders out of place. “What does she want?” I ask myself. It’s the evening. I’m tired. I just want to walk my dogs, go home, cook dinner and watch Modern Family.

DSH Perfumes Vanille Botanique EDP Natural Perfume Review

DSH Perfumes Vanille Botanique

DSH Perfumes Vanille Botanique is the most decadent vanilla themed perfume that has ever touched my skin. It’s so rich and luxurious that I almost feel guilty wearing it because it’s one of the most self-indulgent, lavish perfumes ever created. And that’s why I love it.

Vanille Botanique smells so good the opening is a rich vanilla complimented by old-fashioned mosses and a hint of retro florals. But, trust me, this is all about the vanilla. The vanilla in this is sweet, balsamic, rich… Continue reading | 14 Comments

Best of 2011 – Perfume Blogging Event

Best Perfumes of 2011

I dislike doing best/worst lists because fragrance is subjective AND I dislike doing them because I haven’t tried all of the new launches of 2011. Who has? If you keep up with mainstream, luxury, indie, and naturals, you know that a new perfume is launched every second…only a slight exaggeration. Here’s a best of list that I compiled from the limited perfumes (in comparison to new launches) that I tried this year. Personally, I thought 2011 was a good year for… Continue reading | 39 Comments
