H&M Has Perfumes – Some Reviews

H&M perfumes

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing (Some) Popular Perfumes

Last year H&M launched a TON of perfumes. I was extremely skeptical. Who launches this many perfumes at once?! I also remember them having perfumes before and in their true fast-fashion fashion, they were also discontinued quicker than a yellow light turning red. Everything about H&M’s new perfume collection felt so rushed, so fast and well, cheap. Plus, they probably wouldn’t even be available in the U.S. anyway.

I was wrong. A friend I met through perfume convinced me to give them a try…and not just to… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Juliette Has A Gun Mmmm… Perfume Review

Juliette Has a Gun Mmmm... perfume

All you need to know about Juliette Has a Gun Mmmm…is that it is Dior Hypnotic Poison. OK, that’s an exaggeration. After wearing it a few more times, I realize there are some subtle differences. But, Mmmm… seems like it could have easily been a Dior Poison flanker.

Mmmm…opens with something that reminds me of Play-Doh and raspberry cordial (Chambord). Some of you may be thinking, “Wow, what a mess!” and the rest of us are going “ohhhh, yeah!”.  I’m one of the weirdos that likes the that this… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Initio Addictive Vibration perfume review

Have you missed me? I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted (umm…months), but here I am. Long story short, everything is fine. I’ve just been so busy with my new career and in general, life. Something had to give and it was this blog. After taking a break for my own sanity, I’m ready to talk about perfume again. Here I am breaking my multi-month sabbatical to talk about a white floral by French niche brand Initio that has a ridiculous name, Addictive Vibration.

Addictive Vibration is… Continue reading | 10 Comments

Jovan Silky Rose Perfume Review

Jovan Silky 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

Proenza Schouler Arizona Perfume Review

Proenza Schouler Arizona

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

There has been a lot of excitement and hype around Arizona because it’s Proenza Schouler’s first fragrance release. It’s been three years in the making (L’Oreal signed a licensing agreement in 2015). The brand has had a laid-back “it” appeal and worn by cool “it” girls like Rooney Mara. I feel like fashion folks were excited to see what a brand like Proenza Schouler would launch. Personally, I was happy to see the American Southwest be an… Continue reading | 6 Comments
