The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.
In case you’re just tuning in, I’m a huge fan of Dawn Spencer Hurwitz of DSH Perfumes work. In fact, she’s partially responsible for why EauMG still exists today. Her perfumes were my first real introduction to indie perfumery. Since trying her perfumes, I have tried hundreds of indie perfumes, many I have covered on this blog.
So, I’ve learned with DSH, there’s a massive catalog… Continue reading
All you need to know about Juliette Has a Gun Mmmm…is that it is Dior Hypnotic Poison. OK, that’s an exaggeration. After wearing it a few more times, I realize there are some subtle differences. But, Mmmm… seems like it could have easily been a Dior Poison flanker.

Anyway, there are a few posts that I’m surprised that I haven’t done yet, even over this past decade. One of those is that I’ve never reviewed the original Mugler Angel perfume, an icon that I have so much respect for that I find it difficult to convey in words.

Atelier des Ors Aube Rubis is one of those perfumes that I think I know but then I wear it a few different times over a span of a few different seasons and then I realize I never really knew it. There are times that I think of it like an iris gourmand (usually in warmer weather). Sometimes I think of it as a very opulent fruitichouli (again, in warmer weather). And then I wear it on cooler days and it’s suede and woods. Or it’s… Continue reading | 2 Comments
