Is there a brand of perfumes that don’t really “click” with you?
I think many of us have a brand that we’ve tried but never really connected with us. It’s not about the perfumes. It’s us. Something about their style doesn’t work for us for whatever reason.
For me, it’s probably Jo Malone London. This is a brand that many people adore. I haven’t tried everything from the brand but what I have tried never really worked on me. Some of them go sort of “sour” on my… Continue reading | 16 Comments

My answer: amber. I went through a crazed amber stage; it was all I wore. Then one day, I was so sick of it. I had burnt myself out (like if someone that thought eating cake everyday for a… Continue reading | 20 Comments
The Lipstick League – Week of 6.29.15
Happy 4th of July!
Question of the Week: What was your first “signature scent’? Do you still wear it?
EauMG’s Answer: Being a fumehead, we don’t have a signature scent. We have commitment issues. Thinking back, I don’t think I’ve ever had a signature scent. Even in my more youthful days, I’d wear lots of different things. I will say that I’ve had notes that reoccurred throughout my life – patchouli and rose. Those have been
