I haven’t really kept up with many recent perfume launches. And when I say recent, I don’t mean things in the past month…or even the past six months. I’m talking like the past few years.

Remember in an Initio review from a few months ago when I said I was going to start posting reviews more regularly again? Well, I’m trying and life just keeps getting in the way.
