Perfumer’s Workshop Tea Rose Perfume Review

Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose Perfume Review

Another week of Roses! Rose Cheapies – 2019

Winter has left me feeling exceptionally “blah” this year so I’m basically trying to do anything that I think will remind that my feelings and this cold season are temporary. As a distraction, I did something I tell all of ya’ll not to do. I blind-bought perfumes. But, let me explain! I bought rose-centric perfumes from a discount site, all of them selling for under $25. That seems like less of a gamble, right? This week I will see if the blind-sniffing odds were

Chabaud Eau de Source Perfume Review

Chabaud Eau de Source

I meet a lot of people that were young adults in the 1980’s that absolutely can not stand huge 80’s perfumes like Dior Poison or Giorgio Beverly Hills. I totally understand. They spent a decade+ gagging on syrupy plums and powdery tuberoses. Those huge fragrances were in every office, school, bus stop, restaurant, etc. Their reaction to these are like my reaction to many aquatic florals. For years, I could not stand aquatics like Calvin Klein Escape or Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey or a fruity floral like… Continue reading | 2 Comments
