Lili Bermuda Lily & Oleander Perfume Reviews

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.

Here’s my reviews of Lily and Oleander:

Lily Bermuda Lily

Lily – Includes notes of nectarine, tamarind, cactus flower, lily of the flower, pear flower, calla lily, white musk and woods. 

Lily opens with a cottony softness paired with a lot of citrus. It becomes fruitier with pear. But, this pear isn’t… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I rarely pay attention to Jo Malone London Launches mainly because they’re never what I want them to be and they perfumes themselves are too fleeting. We all have a brand (or brands) who’s aesthetic doesn’t really fit with ours. One of these brands for me is Jo Malone London. I think they’re perfectly fine but they don’t attract me.

ROSE WEEK 2017 – An Aquatic Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 6 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

Eris Belle de Jour EDP Perfume Review

Eris Belle de Jour review

Eris Parfums is the line of perfumes created by vintage perfume collector and writer, Barbara Herman (of Yesterday’s Perfume). Barbara has been my source for all things vintage perfume related so I was so excited to see her not only write a book but launch this line of perfumes.

Belle de Jour opens as salty orange blossoms and musk. It’s both cool and warm with a metallic coriander and fur stole-like musk. The heart is a cool, acrid floral… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Art de Parfum Sea Foam EDP Perfume

Art de Parfum Sea Foam

If you think that aquatic perfumes smell like synthetic messes that resemble household cleaner, let me suggest that you try Art de Parfum Sea Foam. This is an aquatic that actually smells like a sea breeze and not something you’d use to get rid of smudges on your glass coffee table.

Sea Foam opens with a citrus-tinted, dry cedar that comes across as driftwood. There’s a crisp greenness to Sea Foam like that of unripe, green and latex-ish figs. This fragrance performs in the… Continue reading | 1 Comment
