Lubin Epidor was a perfume originally launched in 1912. Is this 2017 relaunch anything like the original? I highly doubt it. Anyway, this perfume is inspired by harvesting wheat and the French countryside. Glamour, non?
Epidor opens as a white floral with a sweet, sticky grape jelly. And there’s a lot of baby powder. As it wears, the jasmine and orange blossom really blooms. It’s heady with stone fruit undercurrents (like plum). As it wears, there’s an addition of a white musk. Now the base of this fragrance is a pleasant… Continue reading
Another Week of Roses! Rose Cheapies: 2019
Winter has left me feeling exceptionally “blah” this year so I’m basically trying to do anything that I think will remind that my feelings and this cold season are temporary. As a distraction, I did something I tell all of ya’ll not to do. I blind-bought perfumes. But, let me explain! I bought rose-centric perfumes from a discount site, all of them selling for under $25. That seems like less of a gamble, right? This week I will see if the blind-sniffing odds were stacked against
ROSE WEEK 2019 – A Gourmand 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.
Turin and Sanchez brought attention to the Maison Lancome line in their “Perfumes: The Guide 2018“. In my opinion, until then, this line-up was a real sleeper for most Perfume People. Why? I think because we’re all fatigued by “luxe” lines by designers. They come out with… Continue reading | 6 Comments
Ormonde Jayne Tsarina is supposed to be the brand’s “opulent” fragrance, the brand itself describes it as a “powerhouse” with imagery of brocade, furs and jewels. I found this interesting because I’d never use the word “powerhouse” to describe a Ormonde Jayne perfume despite many of my descriptions/review of Ormonde Jayne perfumes that come across as “powerhouse”. White Gold, a jasmine soliflore, smells like jewels and wealth. Ta’if, a warm rose, is a perfume that never ceases to gain me a few compliments. The… Continue reading | 2 Comments
Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume
I’ve said it before that the AERIN line by Estee Lauder confuses me. I don’t get why they didn’t make it a separate line that has nothing to do with Estee Lauder. When I get past this, I still don’t really “get” the line, but that’s because the brand isn’t really for people like me. This aesthetic, like that of Jo Malone London, just doesn’t appeal to me. But, that doesn’t mean that… Continue reading | 8 Comments
