Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume
I’m pretty sure that I was the last person on Earth to learn what a Beckham is. When we moved into our house, the neighbors kept calling us “The Beckhams” . We thought that somebody misunderstood us. It was odd but we kept letting it go on. Finally, one day at a BBQ my husband shared our last names (we do not share the same last name). One neighbor laughed.

When I purchased this fragrance oil I was thinking of fall. I thought that an apple scent would be very nice for October. I was expecting something that would remind me of leaves crunching under my Frye boots in the orchards of Washington. This is not a fall fragrance. L’Aromarine Pomme is more like a Jolly Rancher mixed with Johnson’s No More Tears Shampoo. Perfume labs and flavor labs are often married. This smells like what fake apple tastes like. You know the apple used in sour candies and… Continue reading | 4 Comments
