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.

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?

Years ago, when I tried (and fell in love with) Memo Shams Oud, the brand was impossible to get in the U.S. I had a kind “mule” bring it back from Paris. Fast-forward. Now the brand is everywhere in the United States! This is good. Accessibility is a wonderful thing. However, maybe it was the exchange rate, but I didn’t remember the full-size bottles being so pricey. Global expansion must come with some hefty costs.

OK, so Inlé Iris is one of Memo’s… Continue reading | 4 Comments
