Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude EDP Perfume Video Review

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I admit that I ignored Sensuous Nude when it was launched. I was sick of the Estee Lauder Sensuous flankers and honestly, I thought I had already tried this one. And the name seemed very silly to me. Sensuous Nude? I’d rather sniff Awkward Nude or Distasteful Nude. What about Sensuous Nude Descending Down a Staircase? I’m so happy that I finally wore Sensuous Nude on skin. It’s a nice casual mainstream fragrance that I enjoy wearing.

There are a few perfumes that I’m interested but I haven’t parted with my cash yet. I’m at the stage where I’m trying to be really picky before bringing… Continue reading | 16 Comments

EauMG’s “Frivolous” Spring Perfume Cravings

Lawrence Alma Tadema "Promise of Spring"

Recently, while testing a few perfumes that I thought were “spring-like”, I realized that most of the perfumes that I like or wear aren’t fun. Some are fun, in an overly va-va-voom way, but none are carefree, flirty, or frankly, happy. I started thinking. Why do I not like playful perfumes? Is it the notes? The marketing? Is it me? It’s a little of all of the above. I continued sampling the perfumes that I thought were too innocent and gamine for me… Continue reading | 33 Comments
