Rose Week 2018 – A Cosmetic Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d’Amour Perfume Review

Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d'Amour

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I mentioned in my review of Elizabeth & James Nirvana Rose that there aren’t many good “mainstream roses”. Or at least there isn’t much competition in the way of designer/affordable rose perfumes. I guess I had forgotten about Yves Rocher when I wrote that review, because Yves Rocher does make some good roses that retail for way under $100. Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d’Amour is a perfect example of a good rose that isn’t niche (and won’t… Continue reading | 2 Comments
