Rose Week 2018 – Rose Candles

Oh, so you thought Rose Week was over, huh? Here’s a bonus round for Rose Week 2018! I’ve put together a guide of rose scented candles. Of course there are more roses than this but there really should be something in this guide for anyone that is looking to add a rose candle (or in my case, candles) to their home fragrance wardrobe.

Here’s my list including 20+ rose-centric candles:

Rose Week 2018 – A Cosmetic Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

Let me start out this Rose Week with a disclaimer for any new or visiting readers, I’m a rose lover. I love rose perfumes for their versatility. A rose can take on many roles. There’s also the long history of the rose. It seems like since the beginning of time, humans… Continue reading | 1 Comment

Houbigant Quelques Fleurs Jardin Secret Extrait Perfume Review

Houbigant Quelques Fleurs Jardin SecretHoubigant Quelques Fleurs is one of those perfumes that I have history with. It was one of those perfumes that I wore before I even knew I loved perfume; we have some great memories together. Houbigant has launched a flanker to the L’Original. When someone is making a flanker to a perfume launched in the 1910’s, I’m going to assume it shares few similarities (if any at all). For the sake of this review, I’m going to focus on Jardin Secret and not L’Original. I just don’t think… Continue reading | 6 Comments
