FAR Botanicals Verde Oil Supreme Hair Serum Oil Review

Far Botanicals Verde Oils

 

FAR Botanicals is a brand of small-batch natural haircare that has combined a nourishing hair oil with fragrance. Verde Oil is like perfume for your hair that actually improves the condition of your hair. I’m amazed by this. I’m so happy that someone has caught on that this is a product that needs to exist. I love perfume. I love “crunchy” haircare. And I love a multi-purpose product. Verde Oil combines all of this.

The line comes in eight scents (well, seven, one is scentless)… Continue reading | 13 Comments

Bath & Body Works Flashback Fragrances – Thoughts & Mini Reviews

From tattoo choker necklaces to denim overalls to mini backpacks, we can easily see that there is a wave of 90’s nostalgia in effect right now. Even Bath & Body Works is having a moment of 90’s nostalgia and has relaunched six “Flashback Fragrances”.

Belle Fleur Indochine is a sultry scent, an absolute stunner. It’s like a rich, powdery, honeyed floral. It’s this glorious jasmine over smoky, dark woods with a boozy vanilla sweetness. Indochine is what I’d call a  “dark jasmine”. It’s a smoky, sexpot jasmine paired with warm woods and an irresistible, sweet, animalic honey. If it were a personal… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Smell Bent Bollywood or Bust EDT Perfume Review

Smell Bent Bollywood or Bust

Smell Bent is a brand known for their jaunty perfumes and cheeky names. And this can sometimes distract from the constitution of the actual perfumes. I think this is something that has happened to Bollywood or Bust.

First things first, I wouldn’t describe Bollywood or Bust as a very “Bollywood” perfumes. So let’s get rid of that little assumption. Let’s just go into this thinking of it as an indie perfume with a reasonable price point. Bollywood or Bust opens with a sour, woodsy sandalwood and… Continue reading | 7 Comments
