In this month’s enabling post AKA a roundup of perfumes that I think are a good deal, I focused on “heavier” scents/notes that I start to crave in the fall. These are a mix of spicy scents and vampy ambers.
1. Natori by Natori EDP – So, this bad mama has been discontinued and this angers me. It’s such a great plummy floral-chypre in a beautiful bottle. It’s vampy with a glamorous Old Hollywood vibe. Anyway, it’s dirt cheap right now so get a bottle while you still can (assuming that… Continue reading | 4 Comments
I’m trying so hard to limit my purchases this year. I’ve accumulated so much. I’ve downsized. Blah, blah, blah. But, do you have any idea how difficult it is to be a blogger in the realm of beauty/fragrance that doesn’t want to buy anything?! It’s difficult. There’s always new releases. There’s always a gift with purchase. There’s always a sale. There’s always a temptation! However, I’m making some improvements.

My Glossybox 1st impression: The… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Today I’m talking about Pacifica perfumes. This line is located here in the Pacific Northwest and was founded by Brooke Harvey Taylor and her husband, Bill. The company website says that the line contains skin-safe ingredients and that the line is cruelty-free. There’s a huge focus on sustainability and “botanicals”. I think the line is over 15 years old, but I’m not certain. I emailed their PR years ago and never received any information. You can read the “Our Brand” on their website and get more info. And really, that’s enough info for me. It answers most of my questions.
