What are your favorite coconut perfumes?
A few years ago, I put together a comprehensive guide of coconut-centric perfumes (which I’m sure is outdated now). That was a guide so I didn’t really talk about what I like in that post.
I’m one of those people that for some reason likes coconut fragrances. I know they’re “cheap” since that lactonic, creamy scent is associated with functional fragrances like sunscreen and conditioners. It’s also a common flavoring. But, I can’t… Continue reading | 8 Comments
I haven’t posted one of these in a long time (a year to be exact) but apparently cooler weather makes me want to shop more. I find myself on a lot of sites and unfortunately (fortunately?)

Do you buy decants?
Let me explain what a decant is for those that may not know. A decant is fragrance decanted from a full-size bottle of perfume. Generally, these are not sold through the brand but through perfume lovers (in real-life or online) or through certain decanting sites.
