Aether Arts A Roll in the Grass Perfume Oil Review

Aether Arts A Roll in the Grass

Aether Arts is a new niche perfume line by Amber Jobin. The “Burner” series is a collection of perfume inspired by Burning Man. Each Burning Man has a theme. If you didn’t know that before, now you know. No. 2 A Roll in the Grass is inspired by the “Rites of Passage” theme.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume Review

Marc Jacobs Daisy

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

If you want a “never mind me, I’ll just blend in right here” type of perfume, then try Marc Jacobs Daisy.

Daisy opens as clean, green apple fruity-floral shampoo with a hint of grapefruit and nondescript berries. And the heart is nondescript florals. OK, I do get the violet but the rest of the flowers are nondescript. The base is nondescript woods and floral musk.

Daisy is a good perfume in its composition. It’s seamless. It’s a… Continue reading | 14 Comments

DSH Perfumes DAWN Pretty & Pink EDP Perfume Review

DSH Perfumes Pretty in Pink EDP

DSH Perfumes Pretty & Pink is a relaunched perfume. And I’m delighted that it has been relaunched since I missed it the first go around.

I imagine if all of these… Continue reading | 7 Comments

Soivohle Lilas et Narcissus EDT Fragrance Review

Soivohle Lilas et Narcissus was launched this spring. And it’s very much a playful spring floral with lilac, violets, and strawberries.

Marjorie Woodworth

Lilas et Narcissus is such a delicate, pretty fragrance. I get a lovely powdered violet with a juicy strawberry. Heady, honeyed spring florals are present. It’s lilac, and yes, it’s white lilac. I also get violet and strawberry. I never knew that I liked strawberry in fragrance until I tried Lilas et Narcissus. It’s a very playful element. The scent gets slightly headier with time. I… Continue reading | 1 Comment
