Eric Buterbaugh FLORALS Regal (Tuberose) EDP Perfume Review

Eric Buterbaugh Regal Perfume

7 Days of Eric Buterbaugh*

Eric Buterbaugh is a well-known floral designer based in Los Angeles. Last year, he launched a line of perfumes, Eric Buterbaugh FLORALS, inspired by the medium he knows best – flowers. The Noses work with Firmenich, creating many of my most-worn perfumes from designer to niche. I’m dedicating a week to reviewing this line because like Eric Buterbaugh, I too love florals. 

I love floral perfumes; yet, I’ve never really shown my enthusiasm for tuberose soliflores. I have… Continue reading


Comme des Garcons x Pharrell Williams Girl EDP Perfume Review

CdG and Pharrell Williams Girl

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

The launching of Girl was a big deal for the “mainstream world” for a few reasons:

Reason 1- The the celeb in this case had enough sense to not only align themselves with a designer, but a designer line that produces a lot of good, trendy perfumes.

The copy, the esoteric video, the interviews with Lutens left me feeling uneasy in a way that a perfume has never done before. Regardless of interpretation, I think that most of us will agree that the backstory is… Continue reading | 26 Comments


Comme des Garcons PLAY Black EDP Perfume Review

CdG Play Black

I’m a fan of the Comme des Garçons Play perfume line. It’s a fun line that fits the clothing brand perfectly. I have a feeling with launches like Amazingreen (which wasn’t amazing or green) and Black, that these will be outshadowed by similar sounding perfumes from the same perfume house within a year of launching. I’m not going to let you forget these, OK.

PLAY Black opens with tons of pepper. It’s a pepper mill of black pepper, red pepper and pink pepper all over your… Continue reading | 5 Comments

Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods for Men Body Wash Review

B&BW Twilight Woods for Men Body Wash Review

Haven’t had enough of Twilight yet? Bath and Body Works has launched a fragrance line Twilight Woods for men and women. I live in “Twilight Woods” so I had to give this a try. (I am not a fan of the Twilight series. I only like for my vampires to be Bela Lugosi or created by Joss Whedon). Twilight Woods for Men is a dry woodsy fragrance. I think of the fragrance as unisex. It isn’t overly… Continue reading | 5 Comments
