Humiecki & Graef Multiple Rouge EDT Perfume Review

Humiecki & Graef Multiple Rouge

Humiecki and Graef seem to take pride with their bizarre-o perfume inspirations. Multiple Rouge is “inspired by ecstatic joy on the cusp of sentimentality“. Whatever. This is futuristic fruit.

Britt Ekland 1966

I’ve been on a 60’s kick lately…but I always do that in the summer. I love a good campy, mod look. Here’s Britt Ekland on the cover of a 1966 Vogue looking absolutely stunning. Mod perfection. And before her Bond Girl fame.

The Lipstick League – week of 8.8.11

Question of the Week: – What perfume can bring back memories with just one sniff?

EauMG’s Answer: Way too many smells throw me back! When I smell Nag Champa or Dior Fahrenheit, I am reminded of the days when I dated my now husband. These are the smells that he used to wear. Anytime I smell headshop incense, I’m reminded of my younger and angstier days. 

How was your week? This week I’ve been… Continue reading
