Andrée Putman basically spent her life as the interior designer. When I think of how a wealthy person with good taste decorates, I basically think of Putman’s streamline, unfussy, neutral, and very French aesthetic. Yeah, I’m sure it’s dated, or at least the vision in my head is, but her work has left an impression deep in my psyche – a neutral, light-filled imprint (with enormous windows and high ceilings) that is still way out of my price… Continue reading
One of my many character flaws is that I love the Hermès Hermèssence collection. I live for sheer, ephemeral things that are basically non-existent. According to online perfume platforms and other perfume-related reviews, this is a problem. But, it’s not for me. I think things that last forever on the skin are a nightmare; they’re oppressive.

But, when I think of Omnia as a subcollection of Bvlgari perfumes, I have no complaints. Overall, I enjoy all of the Omnias. They’re… Continue reading | 2 Comments
I’m taking some time off for the holidays. It isn’t as fun as it sounds. It’s mainly me catching up on things that should have been done months ago. I’m also cleaning/purging and well, just that overall “nesting” that should have happened before winter started.
While I’m in this nesting mood, I thought it would be a good time to cover some home fragrance products on EauMG. It’s cold and gross and it’s only going to get colder and grosser. I may as well surround myself with… Continue reading | 2 Comments
