Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular (Limited Edition) Perfume
AND The Beach Eaus – A Month of Sniffing Beach & Ocean Inspired Perfumes
I’m not going to get into all of my weird phobias, but I will say this, a cruise is my personal version of hell. I’m not judging anyone that enjoys them. I’m just saying that I have issues and it’s like a cruise combines all of my phobias and has the audacity of charging me money for it.
The newest limited edition summer Mugler Angel flanker is “cruise water”… Continue reading
MAINSTREAM MONDAY – SNIFFING A POPULAR PERFUME
I know that I kvetch a lot about the Bvlgari Omnia flankers. One of my favorite designer perfumes was the original Omnia. Throughout the years, the brand has kept making flankers and got rid of the original! That’s like having a successful pop band go on tour without ANY of its original members!

Seven Days of Eric Buterbaugh*

When it comes to soliflores, roses are my favorite. I’m a rose person. And apparently red roses… Continue reading
April Aromatics Tempted Muse is a perfume inspired by ambrosia, “The Nectar of the Gods”. To me this sounds so serious, like do I really deserve to smell like Gods? (No need to answer that). I do love the idea of an ambrosia fragrance, but when I wear Tempted Muse, I don’t think it’s overly serious. It’s a scrumptious fruity floral that seems more attainable than something only for Gods. It makes me think of the beauty of Central American beaches or like a beach-destined honeymoon… Continue reading | 10 Comments
