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.
Let me start out this Rose Week with a disclaimer for any new or visiting readers, I’m a rose lover. I love rose perfumes for their versatility. A rose can take on many roles. There’s also the long history of the rose. It seems like since the beginning of time, humans… Continue reading | 1 Comment
Lili Bermuda is a line based in surprise! Bermuda. I’ve tried most of the fragrances in the line. I can tell you that the line loves pretty florals. And they seem to do them very well.

Gallivant describes Brooklyn (the fragrance) as
It’s non-stop go-go-go. Energetic with a creative and intellectual fizz. Power-walking to a breakfast meeting over the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s life on the sidewalk, early summer breezes, the glow from the lighting in bars and diners, bright apartments with books. Cocktails with friends. A lazy May afternoon in the sun at Park Slope, warmth on the skin. Small flowers in the grass. Fresh air.
So, basically Gallivant’s Brooklyn is gentrified Brooklyn. And to those outside of the region, this is the Brooklyn they think of… Continue reading | 5 Comments
