ROSE WEEK 2019 – A Gourmand 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.

Turin and Sanchez brought attention to the Maison Lancome line in their “Perfumes: The Guide 2018“. In my opinion, until then, this line-up was a real sleeper for most Perfume People. Why? I think because we’re all fatigued by “luxe” lines by designers. They come out with… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Lancome La Vie Est Belle Perfume Review

Lancome La Vie est Belle

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I’m going to be honest, I hated Lancôme La Vie est Belle before ever trying it. Even though I try not to be, I can be extremely shallow and judgey. Everything about the marketing of La Vie est Belle gets on my nerves. The commercial with Julia Roberts may be one of the corniest perfume commercials of my adult life¹.

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Oh, flankers¹! Do we love to hate them or hate to love them? I think in most instances, flankers are completely unwarranted². Why crowd the shelves with slight variations of the same theme? Or even worse, why make a perfume that suggests that it’s related to its epic namesake and instead give us some generic pink pepper floral?

I couldn’t resist. I FINALLY bought Serge Lutens La Myrrhe. This also included some other perfumes. That exchange range! Ooops. I have no regrets.

I also went to an event with Roxana Illuminated Perfumes at NY Aromatherapy Institute. I’ve been meaning to buy Figure 1 Noire for… Continue reading | 23 Comments

Eating Crow – October 2014

Kawanabe crow

I had said in my 6th Blogiversary post that I’d like to start doing a feature where I revisit perfumes to see if my “eaupinions” have changed. I said I wasn’t afraid to eat crow…and I’m not.

This month I revisited some vanilla scents that I’ve reviewed in the past. The weather has cooled down and I’m craving a few sweeter, more gourmand scents.
