The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

The Beach Eaus – A month of beach and ocean inspired perfumes.

Coqui Coqui Flor de Mayo and Coco Coco Reviews

As I discussed in my review of a few Shanghai Tang perfumes, I like to buy perfumes when I travel to be my olfactory souvenirs.
