Atelier des Ors Rose Omeyyade Perfume Review

Atelier des Ors Rose Omeyyade

ROSE WEEK 2018 – A Rose-Oud

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.

How could I get through Rose Week without a rose-oud? The answer – I couldn’t. Atelier des Ors Rose Omeyyade is one of those darker, deeper, jammy roses balanced by woods.

The first part of the wear of Rose Omeyyade is a spicy, boozy rose. It opens with a raspberry jam… Continue reading

Lili Bermuda Lily & Oleander Perfume Reviews

Lili Bermuda is a line based in surprise! Bermuda. I’ve tried most of the fragrances in the line. I can tell you that the line loves pretty florals. And they seem to do them very well.

Here’s my reviews of Lily and Oleander:

Lily Bermuda Lily

Lily – Includes notes of nectarine, tamarind, cactus flower, lily of the flower, pear flower, calla lily, white musk and woods.

Natori Josie Perfume Review

Natori Josie

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Josie is the “junior’s line” by Pinay fashion-lingerie designer Josie Natori. One of my favorite designer perfumes is Natori, a dramatic va-va-voom floriental perfume. I thought Natori was a wonderful extension of the Natori brand. I actually didn’t realize that the Josie line had a perfume until a sample came with a gift with purchase. I really didn’t know what to expect with Josie. I know it’s a younger, more “boho” brand that Josie Natori still defines as “East… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Aftelier Amber Tapestry Natural Perfume Review

Aftelier Amber Tapestry

When I moved to the NYC area, I started to take up tapestry weaving as a hobby. I don’t know why I decided to do such a thing while living in such a small space, but I did. I really enjoyed it. I took classes and rented space in a textile center. I would get lost in fibers and colors. When I started grad school, everything was pushed to the back burner. I still have a primitive handloom with an unfinished piece on it, but it just stares… Continue reading
