Exhausted Sigh

Exhausted Sigh

So. Yeah, exactly. Not reviewing anything today. It’s been a long winter. My mom just went home today after her third surgery since December. It just feels like a nonstop worry-fest for three months, too many days in the hospital. I’m sure a lot of you have done that. But The rest, please…

Darkly Audacious?

Darkly Audacious?

There’s just one rule I try to live by – if you’re going to give your perfume a name that’s a little edge, then make what’s inside edgy or at least interesting. The Pink room’s Darkly Audacious is a perfectly fine florgourchouli with notes of lemon, bergamot, and rosewood; heart The rest, please…

Wanna Be My "Boyfriend"? (by Nava)

Wanna Be My “Boyfriend”? (by Nava)

By March We’re in the middle of a typical mid-Atlantic March – hot! Cold! Snow! Rain!  Allergies!  Wild barometric pressure fluctuations!  Which has meant I’ve curtailed all new-perfume sniffage as a potential migraine on a stick.  I’ve been spritzing the old stand-by’s like Mandragore that I know are safe. Just The rest, please…

Secret Smells

Secret Smells

by Anita/Musette I’m actually blushing as I type this. Okay…I took Carmine out for a walk this afternoon so he could do what dogs do when you take them out.  He’s a healthy dog so, like most healthy mammals, his elimination is pretty normal-smelling (given that it is, uh, poop The rest, please…

Christian Dior La Collection Leather Oud - by Nava

Christian Dior La Collection Leather Oud – by Nava

After last week’s incense discussion veered off into oud territory, I remembered I had samples of the new Dior scents, and went straight for Leather Oud.
