Atelier des Ors Aube Rubis is one of those perfumes that I think I know but then I wear it a few different times over a span of a few different seasons and then I realize I never really knew it. There are times that I think of it like an iris gourmand (usually in warmer weather). Sometimes I think of it as a very opulent fruitichouli (again, in warmer weather). And then I wear it on cooler days and it’s suede and woods. Or it’s… Continue reading | 2 Comments
Atelier des Ors has launched a trio of new perfumes in their White Collection. These perfumes are primarily citrus/florals, but done in the Atelier des Ors style…they have some heft and aren’t fleeting “eau de colognes”.
I was immediately drawn to Choeur des Anges because of its energetic, effervescent opening. The opening of Choeur des Anges (Choir of Angels) is a luxury creamsicle.

PURPLE FLOWERS WEEK 2018
It’s an annual tradition on EauMG to feature “purple flowers” on the week of Nowruz/Vernal Equinox. “Purple flowers” are what I call flowers that (usually) have purple blossoms and bloom in spring: lilacs, violets, iris, heliotrope, hyacinth and wisteria (when I’m feeling generous).

I’m actually highlighting a non-floral “purple floral” this week for all of you that don’t want to… Continue reading
ROSE WEEK 2018 – A Rose-Oud
It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.
How could I get through Rose Week without a rose-oud? The answer – I couldn’t. Atelier des Ors Rose Omeyyade is one of those darker, deeper, jammy roses balanced by woods.
The first part of the wear of Rose Omeyyade is a spicy, boozy rose. It opens with a raspberry jam with rose petals dusted in fruity, pink pepper… Continue reading
The Lipstick League – Week of 1.22.18
Question of the Week: What perfume can’t you get enough of right now?
EauMG’s Answer: I feel like I’m in a perfume rut right now. I keep reaching for things with aldehydes/florals (like Caron Fleur de Rocaille) or something more gourmand-y (like Mugler Angel Muse). Out of perfumes I currently bumped up to the top of my wishlist – Atelier des Ors Lune Féline. I am currently obsessed with this cardamom vanilla.
