Question of the Week: What fragrance are you wearing right NOW?

EauMG’s Answer: It’s Pride! So, I stared out wearing a Serge Lutens but right now after a day of record shopping, parade watching and eating pizza, I’m wearing Charenton Macerations Christopher Street.  What’s your SOTD?

Charenton Macerations Asphalt Rainbow EDP Perfume Review

Charenton Macerations Asphalt Rainbow

Rose Week 2016

Charenton Macerations Asphalt Rainbow is a perfume inspired by street art. I enjoyed following the perfume’s development through the brand’s Instagram which showcases various street art, mostly in Manhattan and Brooklyn. It was a bit surreal to see some of the posts and then later see this art in person, like some sort of street art scavenger hunt. We moved to the East Coast rather abruptly, so when I was “liking” images, I never imagined that a… Continue reading | 10 Comments

EauMG's holiday gift guide

 

HUG your auntie! My holiday gift guides are back! This is an annual tradition on EauMG for the past five years. This edition was previously known as “Holiday Gift Guide for Sweet Nieces and Teens” but as I discussed last year, I wanted a word that was more gender neutral or something I could use collectively. To this date, I have four nephews and one niece. I just want one word to sum all this up. The English language really lacks in this regard… Continue reading | 11 Comments

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street EDP Perfume Review

 Charenton Macerations Christopher Street

“Out of the bottle, into the street.” Here’s what happens when perfume intersects with history and activism.

Christopher Street is the first fragrance by Charenton Macerations, a house devoted to giving us perfume with a story. Christopher Street is named after and inspired by the bohemian, beatnik and historically gay area in New York City, home of the Stonewall Inn and the location of the Stonewall Riots of June, 1969 (this is why Pride is every June). I could go into the story, but Charenton… Continue reading | 7 Comments
