Atelier des Ors Aube Rubis Perfume Review

Atelier des Ors Aube Rubis

Atelier des Ors Aube Rubis is one of those perfumes that I think I know but then I wear it a few different times over a span of a few different seasons and then I realize I never really knew it. There are times that I think of it like an iris gourmand (usually in warmer weather). Sometimes I think of it as a very opulent fruitichouli (again, in warmer weather). And then I wear it on cooler days and it’s suede and woods. Or it’s… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Ormonde Jayne Tsarina Perfume Review

Ormonde Jayne Tsarina

Ormonde Jayne Tsarina is supposed to be the brand’s “opulent” fragrance, the brand itself describes it as a “powerhouse” with imagery of brocade, furs and jewels. I found this interesting because I’d never use the word “powerhouse” to describe a Ormonde Jayne perfume despite many of my descriptions/review of Ormonde Jayne perfumes that come across as “powerhouse”. White Gold, a jasmine soliflore, smells like jewels and wealth. Ta’if, an oriental rose, is a perfume that never ceases to gain me a few… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Mugler Les Exceptions Woodissime Perfume Review

Mugler Woodissime

Like many other designer brands, Thierry Mugler has also launched a line of “exclusive” (AKA more expensive) line-up of perfumes sold at select locations and costs a lot more than their other fragrances. I guess this shouldn’t surprise me since everyone has a more expensive, limited distributed line of perfumes all in uniform bottles. But, I guess this is also what surprised me. Mugler has seemed to always do their own thing. I told myself that I’d try Les Exceptions if they came my way but I wasn’t going… Continue reading | 4 Comments

PURPLE FLOWERS WEEK 2017

It’s an annual tradition on EauMG to feature “purple flowers” on the week of Nowruz/Vernal Equinox. “Purple flowers” are what I call flowers that (usually) have purple blossoms and bloom in spring: lilacs, violets, iris, heliotrope, hyacinth and wisteria (when I’m feeling generous). These are the sort of florals that make me think of spring. Plus, it gives me an excuse to talk about some of my favorite floral notes.

Coolife Le Sixième was instant love. I’m not talking about infatuation. I’m talking… Continue reading

Ramon Bejar Deep Amber EDP Perfume Review

Ramon Bejar Deep Amber

After months of craving sheer floral scents, I found myself this week craving things like amber and musk. I have no idea as to why. The weather has been mild and drizzly, actually reminding me of Seattle winter/spring. I suppose this is what has me craving the sort of scents that I wore while living in the Pacific Northwest.

Ramón Béjar is a Spanish luxury perfume house that I’ve reviewed on EauMG before. The brand’s strength is that they create “simple” scents that… Continue reading | 1 Comment
