1. Hiram Green Arbolé Arbolé EDP – This brand new release from Hiram Green does not disappoint. It’s so green, balsamic and woodsy. Sometimes it reminds me of olive oil and honey; other times it reminds me of forests. And every single time I love wearing it. Retails… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Phoenix Botanicals Lilac Rain

So far, 2016 has been a wild year filled with many things that I’m sure most of us want to forget. However, it’s been a great year for lilac perfumes.

Thorn & Bloom Stranger in the Cherry Grove EDP Natural Perfume Review

Thorn & Bloom Stranger in the Cherry Grove

Don’t be tricked by the “cherry” in this perfumer’s name. Thorn & Bloom Stranger in the Cherry Grove isn’t a fruity perfume. This is a botanical perfume that is like charred woods and smoke.

Perhaps it was a romantic rendezvous lit by firewood, a bonfire-side party in your home town when your visiting from college or maybe holidays spent at a loved one’s home, there’s something about smoky fragrances that people find nostalgic. It appears like many of us have pleasant memories… Continue reading
