Alkemia Perfume Reviews – Sea Inspired Scents

Alkemia perfume reviews

The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

Alkemia is an indie perfume line that mainly focuses on affordable perfume oils. It’s a brand that was brought to my attention via my Instagram stories when I asked about “perfumes for work”. Sure, you can wear whatever you want to work but I try to not be too distracting in our open floor plan. Big Sur was recommended to me. Since all the perfumes are cheap, I bought… Continue reading | 2 Comments

DSH Perfumes Maui Perfume Review

DSH Perfumes Maui perfume review

The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

In case you’re just tuning in, I’m a huge fan of Dawn Spencer Hurwitz of DSH Perfumes work. In fact, she’s partially responsible for why EauMG still exists today. Her perfumes were my first real introduction to indie perfumery. Since trying her perfumes, I have tried hundreds of indie perfumes, many I have covered on this blog.

Nateeva Aruba Perfume Review

Nateeva Aruba perfume review

I promise it won’t just be Nateeva fragrances I feature this month, but they made this easy for me by having an entire line inspired by islands. Next stop is Aruba.

Aruba opens with a tangy neroli and a salty mineralness. Out of the Nateeva perfumes that I’ve tried, Aruba is the most citrus-y. It’s lime submerged in bitter neroli water. It’s also the most “aquatic” out of what I’ve tried. It’s also the one that has garnered the most… Continue reading

Nateeva Saint Thomas Perfume Review

Nateeva Saint Thomas perfume review

The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

Nateeva is a perfume house that is inspired by islands; this is what I call “destination inspirations“. I’ve decided to dedicate the rest of August 2019 to reviewing perfumes that are inspired by or smell like the “the beach”. Because of this, you’re going to see me review the entire Nateeva line. Let’s travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands…

Saint Thomas is a heady white floral. It opens… Continue reading
