ROSE WEEK 2019 – A Leathery 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.
Every Rose Week, I try to focus on one or two rose-centric perfumes that I think people that usually don’t love roses will stand. I am basically trying to get ya’ll to join my decadent and enlightening Cult of Rose. If you don’t think you like rose, let me introduce you to Thameen Nassak.

Smell Bent has launched their limited edition perfume collection, Winterrific, just in time for the holidays. These are new takes on Smell Bent’s old holiday favorites.
Here’s my reviews for all four in this collection:
Dr. Dreidel 3000 with notes of oud, Malaysian sandalwood, guaiacwood, hiba, “designer musk”, vetiver and amber incense.
Every winter, Smell Bent makes a “dreidel” fragrance. I remember Dr. Dreidel from 2010. It was a spicy green perfume that reminded me of Drakkar Noir. This one is really different. Dr. Dreidel… Continue reading | 2 Comments
