Gucci Bloom Perfume Review

Gucci Bloom

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

The past few years have been good for Gucci. Basically, you see it everywhere…again. For myself, I have an interest in Gucci again. So, when Bloom came out, the first perfume by creative director Alessandro Michele, I should have been excited. But, the deal is that Gucci, as fragrances, aren’t very cohesive in comparison to other designer perfume brands like Prada (which all seem “related”) or even Tom Ford.

Women’s Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Trends + Perfume

I’m pairing women’s Spring/Summer ’15 fashion trends from the runway to perfumes. I noticed that this year it’s less about the 90’s throwbacks and more about the 70’s. Everything is all flowy and slightly messy. If you want to partake in trends but don’t look good in maxi-dresses or hate the idea of wearing mono colors, you can still participate, but more discreetly…with perfume.

Here are the perfumes that I’ve paired with popular women’s fashion trends of S/S 2015:

Versace Bright Crystal Absolu Perfume Review

Everything about Bright Crystal Absolu is neon. It opens with an… Continue reading | 9 Comments

Normcore Perfume Guide

Normcore

The other day someone was wearing Tommy Hilifiger Tommy Girl. My first thought was “Oh, I love this stuff!” I think Tommy Girl is one of the best tea fragrances on the planet. And this is saying something since I was suffocated by it during my teenage years. This was the perfume that ALL of the girls wore or put on their Christmas lists or stole from the department store. Tommy Girl was this one thing that preppy, geeky and even a little skanky sort of girls wanted. It… Continue reading | 24 Comments

Women’s Fall/Winter Fashion Trends + Fragrance 2013

I’m pairing women’s fall/winter 2013 fashion trends from the runway to perfumes. This season everything is chunky and clunky from over-sized overcoats to 90’s club kid heels, but who wants to smell “clunky”? Here are other popular women’s fashion trends that translate into perfume.

Navy A/W 2013

Navy

I feel like a dope saying that navy is a trend. Navy is always in. But, I do have to say that it was all over the A/W runways and I see more navy in the the stores this season. Navy… Continue reading | 18 Comments
