Rebel + Mercury Cerise en Cocoa Natural Parfum Review

Rebel + Mercury Cerise en Cocoa

Rebel + Mercury is a Seattle-based natural perfume line. I haven’t worn all of the Rebel + Mercury perfumes on the skin but I can tell you at this time, Cerise en Cocoa is my absolute favorite.

Cerise en Cocoa is a rich fragrance that opens with cherry liquor and a bouquet of roses with a lift of sweet grapefruit. With time, the fragrance becomes even juicier and richer. It’s decadent. The base is a dry, earthy cocoa powder and black tea… Continue reading | 1 Comment

Juliette Has A Gun Candles & Mini Review

Juliette Has A Gun Candles

A few months ago, niche brand Juliette Has A Gun added scented candles to their line-up. Instead of creating wax interpretations of their current EDPs, they created three new “concept” scents.
