Sweet Anthem has launched the Enchanted Collection, a collection of indie perfumes inspired by fairy tales. The collection is divided into Villains and Heroines. Isn’t that nifty?
Villains, Part 1
Notes listed include apple, linden blossom, oakmoss and tonka bean.
Black Queen is like an apple gummy bear. Black Queen is sweet with a fruity tartness. It eventually becomes a creamy key lime pie with a side of moss on my skin.
Out of these four, Black… Continue reading | 15 Comments
Sometimes I get really sick of reviewing perfumes that retail for like a zillion dollars. So, today I want to take the time to review micro-perfumes that retail for less than micro brews and craft cocktails.
Emily – Notes listed include almond, coconut, honey, milk, oatmeal, sandalwood, vanilla and yuzu.
Emily is like this magical oatmeal cookie. It’s a warm, comforting gourmand with honey, almond and toasted coconut. It does open with a tangy citrus and cherry-like almond and then it wears as a milky… Continue reading | 6 Comments
I know I’m whiny. I complain about the cold. I complain about the rain. And now I’m complaining about summer. I’m over it. I feel like I’ve had enough of this summer of 80º+ heat, no a/c and a bedroom on the top floor. I’m romanticizing fall and look forward to balmy days.
I’m also looking forward to fall perfumes. Ella and Petra are two limited edition perfumes in Sweet Anthem’s seasonal Fall ’14 Collection.
Ella has notes of agarwood, black tea, lavender and pumpkin.
Happy 4th of July! I hope my American readers are enjoying today and the weekend.

2. Sonoma Scent Studio (California)
3. Charenton Macerations (New York)
4. Phoenicia (New York but always Seattle to me…)

Sweet Anthem has launched two new masculines in their summer The Great Northern Collection, Walden and Cooper.
Walden contains notes of petit grain, white pepper, vintage florals, ambergris and oakmoss.
Walden opens with tart citrus, fruits and florals. It’s a bitter, green floral with peachy aldehydes. Now green florals can go in a few directions like a dewy “spring” floral or “cool”, Walden doesn’t go in this direction. It has depth and underneath there is some “darkness” from earthy mosses.
This is such a… Continue reading | 4 Comments
