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

Rose Week 2018 – A Cosmetic 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.

Let me start out this Rose Week with a disclaimer for any new or visiting readers, I’m a rose lover. I love rose perfumes for their versatility. A rose can take on many roles.

Phlur Hanami Perfume Review

Phlur Hanami

So far, I’ve reviewed two perfumes from Phlur (Hepcat and Moab) that I’ve absolutely loved.

What matters is that Phlur makes great perfumes. Hepcat and Moab both smelled really “niche” without having a niche price tag. Now I have one more reason to love Phlur. That reason is Hanami… Continue reading | 3 Comments


Ramon Bejar Magnum Iris EDP Perfume Review

Ramon Bejar Magnum Iris

Ramón Béjar is a new Spanish luxury perfume brand launched in 2014. I spent 2014 overwhelmed by launches and this brand fell off my radar. I also haven’t heard much about this line. After trying Magnum Iris, I think the perfume world should get to know this brand in 2015. Put this brand on your radar because I have a feeling that you’re going to hear more about it in the future.

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I’ve been rather lazy with the “Mainstream Mondays” mainly because I was avoiding department stores around the holidays. But, don’t worry. I ventured out and now have samples of some newer designer launches.

The original Michael Kors is one of those few perfumes that I recognize on strangers when I’m out in public. And that heady tuberose does smell good (from afar in my opinion, but that’s another story for another day). The brand launched three scents… Continue reading | 4 Comments
