Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume
I haven’t spent much time at all with the Aerin Lauder perfumes. I’ve sniffed them in store a few times. I don’t remember much about them other than I think I like the rose and lilac one. I get the impression that they are sort of Jo Malone London-ish – sheer, light and feminine. Maybe they’re meant for layering? Waterlily Sun is one of the newest launches in the collection.

Why does the name of this perfume have to be so long? For the sake of this review, we will call HEELEY Oranges & Lemons Say the Bells of St. Clement’s by the name of St. Clements. I can’t deal with typing that over and over. It’s a phrase that is more fun to say than type.
