Amouroud Midnight Rose Perfume Review

ROSE WEEK 2018 – A Fruity Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

Spoiler Alert: I’m covering two fruity roses this week. However, they are so different that I don’t feel bad for covering two fruity-roses during Rose Week. If anything, it shows how much diversity there is a rose, even within roses in the same genre!

Amouroud is a line of perfumes featuring, you… Continue reading

Rose Week 2018 – A Smoky Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

Before diving into straight-up rose soliflores this week, I’m focusing on some non-traditional rose perfumes. January Scent Project Smolderose is one of those perfumes that borders on the line of “is this or isn’t this a rose”.

Bruno Fazzolari Ummagumma Perfume Review

Bruno Fazzolari Ummagumma

Zoologist Camel Perfume Review

Zoologist Camel

Zoologist Perfumes draws its inspirations from animals. With the copy and the name, I expected for Camel to have a Middle Eastern or Horn of Africa influence. This influence is seen throughout perfumery with the use of resins, woods and fruits from the regions and “desert imagery”.

Atelier des Ors Lune Feline Perfume Review

Atelier des Ors Lune Feline

I don’t consider myself a vanilla person at all. There are plenty that I’ve reviewed on EauMG that I like but not enough to buy or even wear. Vanilla haven’t ever really resonated with me. I own a few bottles (modern stuff like Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensée and Diptyque Eau Duelle) but I rarely wear them. I have old school vanillas (like in Guerlains – Shalimar, anyone?). But, I’m so incredibly picky with vanillas. I don’t like… Continue reading | 6 Comments
