I’ve been reviewing a new brand, Precious Liquid. This is a new perfume brand that offers three perfume collections (Exquisite, Pure and Texture¹) that contain three perfumes each. These are meant to wear alone or even to layer using the brand’s 3D Layering.
Precious Liquid markets all of their perfumes as unisex (because all perfumes are unisex). But, I’d say that the Texture Collection is more “traditionally masculine”.
Notes listed include lime, blue agave, salted driftwoods, bay oil and sage.

Or you have the option to wear them… Continue reading | 5 Comments

Le Jardin Retrouvé Citron Boboli (once known as Citron Poivré) is the sort of refreshing citrus that I’m craving on this hot, muggy city days. It’s inspired by the Palazzo Pitti’s Baboli Gardens in Florence. When you’re sweating it out in the subway terminal like a sauna from your nightmares, the streets smell like urine and garbage and every piece of grime sticks to your sticky body, I want something that smells crisp, refreshing and well, transports me to some place like the Baboli… Continue reading | 2 Comments
