EauPen Thread – Brands That Don’t Work for You

Chanel Cristalle
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

Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom & Honey Perfume Review

Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Being a perfume lover comes with its (un)fair share of heartbreaks. When you take up this “hobby”, you risk falling in love with a perfume that will be discontinued without an explanation or reformulated without an announcement.

Jo Malone London White Jasmine & Mint Cologne Perfume Review

Jo Malone White Jasmine

I don’t know what it is about me, but every time I am randomly given a sample in store, it is always a “jasmine” perfume. What about my physical appearance says I want to smell like jasmine? With this one, the Jo Malone rep spent a good 40 seconds searching through a basket for what she said was “the perfect perfume for you”. I wouldn’t have thought anything of it but this has been at least the 15th time this has happened to me at a… Continue reading | 13 Comments
