Nateeva Dominican Republic Perfume Review

Nateeva Dominican Republic perfume review

The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

I can’t believe this month is almost over…and that summer 2019 is coming to an end. I’m trying to squeeze in the last few “beach” scents while it’s still officially summer. I’ve saved my favorite and my least favorite from Nateeva as my last in this series:

Dominican Republic opens as a citrus-hued rose. It’s predominately a grapefruit-rose with a glistening bergamot. There’s also a generic herbal greenness that I really can’t put my finger on but it’s familiar… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Acqua di Parma Chinotto di Liguria Perfume Review

Acqua di Parma Chinotto di Liguria perfume review

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. It became too overwhelming to try new things when there were new things being launched every single day. When I stopped caring about new launches (shocking, I know, I have a perfume blog), I found myself feeling happier and more… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Providence Perfume Lemon Liada Cologne review

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.

One of these is Providence Perfume Co. Lemon Liada.

Lemon Liada has what I want from a citrus perfume… Continue reading | 4 Comments

aroma M Vanilla Hinoki Perfume Review

aroma M Vanilla Hinoki

I like many perfumes from aroma M, like the va-va-voom amber of Geisha Noire and the the green-licorice of Geisha Green. But, I have to say that Vanilla Hinoki may be my new favorite this indie brand. Vanilla Hinoki is inspired by Japanese baths. It’s fresh, clean and relaxing without being the sort of typical fragrance we’d expect when such adjectives were used to describe them.

When I first tried Vanilla Hinoki, I was so surprised by its steamy opening… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Diptyque Oyedo Perfume Review

Diptyque Oyedo

After a hiatus due to moving and traveling, I have decided to bombard this perfume blog with “weird eau de colognes” this week. It’s hot, humid and gross. I want to smell fresh and clean but with something that is a little more interesting than the usual. Like Mugler Hot Cologne, Diptyque Oyédo is a citrus with a twist.

Oyedo opens as a juicy, fruity orange mingling with a juicy lemon. There’s definitely something cool and mentholated in this that reminds me of a cough… Continue reading
