Ayala Moriel Orcas EDP Natural Perfume Review

Ayala Moriel Orcas

Growing up in a landlocked state, I didn’t realize that dolphins lived outside of aquarium glass walls. This is sad. When I moved to the PNW over 5 years ago, I was amazed. I literally got in my car from Nashville and kept driving until I smelled salt water. Deep within the depths of this salt water amazing creatures dwell: whales, octopus and yes, orcas.

Ayala Moriel Orcas opens with refreshing lime and fresh ginger paired with freshly cut herbs. It’s… Continue reading | 5 Comments


EauMG at Taste TV Artisan Fragrance Salon – Seattle 2013 – A Re-Cap

Seattle May 2013

Here’s my overview of the Seattle Artisan Fragrance Salon. It was an 80º day with full-sun, absolutely gorgeous, and an anomaly for this time of year.

EauMG’s Smell Diary – April 2013

April 1stSoDo – Getting off on the wrong bus stop leaves me walking half a mile through working train tracks in winklepickers like some darkwave music video outtake.

EauMG’s Smell Diary – March 2013

March 1stDowntown – Orange blossom! The elevator smells of Arquiste Infanta y Flor. Someone in this building has wonderful tastes and probably shops at Barneys. Someone other than me…

March 2ndDowntown – Shopping and perfume sniff-a-thon. There are so many pitiful things that make the final cut. Stop with the pointless releases of things that smell like some pointless thing released 5 years ago.

March 3rdRedmond – First time I’ve ever been here and I’m not missing a thing. The smell of cheap vanilla candle wax
