EauPEN Thread – Favorite Designer Perfumes

Erykah Badu
Name your Top 5 Favorite designer perfume brands.
This is tough for me. When the word “favorite” is mentioned, it makes me nervous. I’m too noncommittal for blanket statements like that! So as of today, these are my five favorite designer perfumes. These are the brands that I own the most from and actually wear:

  1. Prada – I actually own a lot of Prada and I forget this. The original “Prada Amber” is one of my favorites. This may partially be because of memories or the

Prada Candy Florale Perfume Review

Prada Candy Florale

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I’ve loved the original Prada Candy since first sniff. In fact, I still wear that perfume frequently. It’s a sweet benzoin-iris that is more complex than it’s namesake. Like always, I avoid flankers out of fear of disappointment, especially when it’s of a perfume that I adore. One time at a duty-free shop, I sniffed Candy Florale and was majorly disappointed.

My Most Complimented Perfumes – 2014 Edition

most complimented perfumes

I’m not going to go into depth about this in this particular post (maybe at a later date), but I wear fragrance for me. I get pleasure from perfume. I like to wear what I love. My goal is to not get compliments from my husband or from anyone else (oh, so punk). I’m not a parading peacock looking for other’s olfactory acceptance (OK, huge punky exaggeration). Now saying that, I’m human. I have been complimented on perfumes in the past and I admit that I rather… Continue reading | 43 Comments
