Capsule Parfums Moto EDP Perfume Review

Capsule Moto perfume

I really couldn’t resist trying a perfume with blackberries and tar even if the copy makes me want to vomit.
A rebellious scent inspired by bikers and the babes who love them. A dark fruity floral with notes of black plum, sun-warmed blackberries, black dahlia, smoky incense, vanilla and tar. Seductive and liberating. Equally dangerous on men and women.
Because, you know, women just ride on the back of bikes, they don’t actually drive them. *eye roll*

Roberto Cavalli EDP Perfume Review

Roberto Cavalli perfume

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

When I first sniffed Roberto Cavalli EDP in a store, I was offended. I don’t know how to explain it but it offended me and literally turned my stomach. Perhaps it was my expectations. I really liked the other/discontinued Roberto Cavalli fragrances (especially Maurice Roucel’s Oro, love that one) and maybe I was expecting something like those. Now that I try Roberto Cavalli “Signature” again, it’s not as offensive as I remember it, but I think the… Continue reading
