The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.
I promise it won’t just be Nateeva fragrances I feature this month, but they made this easy for me by having an entire line inspired by islands. Next stop is Aruba.
Aruba opens with a tangy neroli and a salty mineralness. Out of the Nateeva perfumes that I’ve tried, Aruba is the most citrus-y. It’s lime submerged in bitter neroli water. It’s also the most “aquatic” out of what I’ve tried. It’s also the one that has garnered the most… Continue reading

Tangerine Thyme opens as the juiciest citrus ever. It smells like when you get that first ripe… Continue reading
Amayori has launched a new limited edition seasonal perfume for Summer 2016, a natural perfume inspired by summer evenings in Okinawa.
Okinawa opens with a sharp, gingery lemongrass. This lemongrass starts to wear as something that reminds me of lemon verbena, like lemon zest and green grass. As it dries down, it’s like a green coconut with fresh gardenia blossoms. The heart is a realistic “gardenias in bloom” on the plant. It’s like a heady gardenia and green leaves.
