The Lipstick League – Week of 1.22.18
Question of the Week: What perfume can’t you get enough of right now?
EauMG’s Answer: I feel like I’m in a perfume rut right now. I keep reaching for things with aldehydes/florals (like Caron Fleur de Rocaille) or something more gourmand-y (like Mugler Angel Muse). Out of perfumes I currently bumped up to the top of my wishlist – Atelier des Ors Lune Féline. I am currently obsessed with this cardamom vanilla.
Do you wear perfumes to sleep?
Yes, I do. Or I guess, I should say that I wear fragrance at night. I tend to bath/shower in the evening. This is the time I wear perfumes for myself (instead of sampling things for the blog). I do my ritual and enjoy whatever bath/body products are in my current rotation. I may wear something that compliments my bath/body products.I really don’t wear “different” perfumes at night vs. the day; I wear whatever suits my fancy.

What perfume note or style are you currently tired of?
OK, so this question isn’t asking if there is something within the industry you’re sick of sniffing. I’d like to know if there is a note/genre that you have burnt yourself out on or never really liked in the first place.
My answer: amber. I went through a crazed amber stage; it was all I wore. Then one day, I was so sick of it. I had burnt myself out (like if someone that thought eating cake everyday for a… Continue reading | 20 Comments
I’m trying so hard to limit my purchases this year. I’ve accumulated so much. I’ve downsized. Blah, blah, blah. But, do you have any idea how difficult it is to be a blogger in the realm of beauty/fragrance that doesn’t want to buy anything?! It’s difficult. There’s always new releases. There’s always a gift with purchase. There’s always a sale. There’s always a temptation! However, I’m making some improvements. I check my stash before I buy and I’ve unsubscribed from a lot of emails to resist temptations. But… Continue reading | 4 Comments
