PK Perfumes Gold Leather is an indie perfume that the perfumer meant to be “a beautifully glowing warm Leather”. Wearing Gold Leather, I’m reminded of Rio Carnival. It’s a colorful, dynamic leather fragrance.
To my surprise, Gold Leather opens as fruity and juicy yet the leather is immediately noticeable. Oddly enough, the leather reminds me of like a box of new sneakers since there is rubberiness to the scent (that I think is coming from the white florals). It’s succulent tropical fruits (like guava and… Continue reading | 7 Comments
It’s Easter and I really should be stuffing my face with Cadbury Creme Eggs but before I start doing that, here’s two quick Votivo candle reviews:
Jasmine Neroli with notes of mandarin, guava, angelica, jasmine, tuberose, white musk, vanilla and woods.
This is a tropical fruit white floral.It’s a tart but syrupy guava over “clean” jasmine with a backdrop of vanilla and woods. I’m usually not a fan of “tropical” home fragrances but I like this one. It’s fun but isn’t a campy “poolside tiki… Continue reading

Perfume people are picky. You know that. I think L’Artisan Parfumeur Fleur de Liane is a good perfume and possibly great IF (see, I’ve already started with the picky “ifs”) it it were half the price or IF I lived in a tropical climate.
Fleur de Liane opens as ozonic and green. It doesn’t remind me of a tropical Panamanian rainforest but instead dew covered grass on an early summer morning…that is part of a drugstore shampoo commercial set. Fleur de Liane becomes a fresh… Continue reading
Korres Guave Body Butter is a great product for those with really dry skin. This is a super emollient and rich cream. It’s thick but easy to rub in if your skin is a little damp or just right out of the shower. It keeps skin moisturized and soft until the next day. It isn’t greasy, sticky, or icky. I like most of Korres products. They are gentle, natural, and of course, I like their smell. This Guava Body Butter… Continue reading | 2 Comments
