Jovan Silky Rose Perfume Review

Jovan Silky Rose Perfume Review

Another week of Roses! Rose Cheapies – 2019

Winter has left me feeling exceptionally “blah” this year so I’m basically trying to do anything that I think will remind that my feelings and this cold season are temporary. As a distraction, I did something I tell all of ya’ll not to do. I blind-bought perfumes. But, let me explain! I bought rose-centric perfumes from a discount site, all of them selling for under $25. That seems like less of a gamble, right? This week I will see if the blind-sniffing odds

My Epic Hungary Haul – Summer 2017

Budapest

In case you didn’t know, last month I went to Budapest on a vacation. We had a great time looking at architecture and drinking wine. But, you know me. I’m obsessed with skincare (and everything else). So, of course I took the time to check out drugstores and beauty stores. I’m embarrassed to even post what I bought because I went crazy.

For a person that talks about perfume on a daily basis, there’s only a few that have had a real impact on me. This is not me being a snob. I’m saying that there are very few perfumes that have impacted my life and influenced how I think about perfume. Myrugia Maja is one of the… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Parfums de Coeur Skin Musk Perfume Oil Review

Parfums de Coeur Skin Musk

Drugstore Divas Week – 2016

This week I’m revisiting popular perfumes available at US drugstores. The sort of perfumes that many of us know but many of us perfume lovers completely ignore. 

Young Victoria used to wear Skin Musk oil over Parfums de Coeur Malibu Musk¹ body spray. I spent years smelling like fruits smothered in musk. Eventually, I graduated to full-blown headshop musks and aged patchouli (because those felt much more alt-cult and “cool”).

If you’re into perfume and didn’t wear Skin… Continue reading | 17 Comments
