Have you missed me? I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted (umm…months), but here I am. Long story short, everything is fine. I’ve just been so busy with my new career and in general, life. Something had to give and it was this blog. After taking a break for my own sanity, I’m ready to talk about perfume again. Here I am breaking my multi-month sabbatical to talk about a white floral by French niche brand Initio that has a ridiculous name, Addictive Vibration.
Thameen¹ is a British niche perfume house that makes perfumes that are inspired by iconic jewels and jewelry. I don’t know much about the jewels worn by royalty, but I do like the idea of comparing gemstones to perfumes. In a way, you can think of perfume like a piece of jewelry, an accessory. It’s a way to add some sparkle and some glamour to your look.
Thameen is a new-to-me brand even though they’ve been around for a few years. Being British, they haven’t had much presence in the U.S. until recently. There are a lot of them… Continue reading | 2 Comments
Mojo Magique is a Louisiana-based brand¹ with perfumes that really are under-the-radar and shouldn’t be! I’ve tried them all and highly recommend each of them (absinthe rose, yes, please!). And I’m reviewing Seer ² today to remind you that this is a good (and more affordable) niche brand that Perfume People should be trying.
Seer is an aromatic fragrance that reminds me of vintage masculines from the 1960’s and 1970’s. It opens with a cool blast of pine needles and licorice-like… Continue reading
Civet is my absolute favorite from the niche brand Zoologist. So, I feel horrible that I’m just now reviewing it! I said in 2016 in my yearly list,
If I were to choose a perfume of the woman I wish to become, it’d be Civet.
It’s been two years and this still hold true. Civet is the sort of aromatic meets oriental-style perfume that I’ve gravitated to since I started wearing perfume. It brings to mind vintage, classic perfumes and style, but in comparison to its… Continue reading | 8 Comments
It’s technically spring in the Northern Hemisphere and I’m over here wearing perfumes that smell like autumn. MariaLux Yours Deeply is one of those spicy, boozy perfumes that manages to smell rich, dark, deep…indulgent.
Yours Deeply is a rich, deep fragrance. It opens with an animalic honey and a barnyard oud. But, there’s also a heavy dose of warm spices and hot apple cider (that reminds me very much of Hermès Hermèssence Ambre Narguile). The spices, the honeyed sweetness and candied citrus keeps this… Continue reading | 2 Comments
