Fragrances - Amouage - Bracken Woman

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2017

I am so smitten! Amouage is guarateed to be beautiful and wearable. Bracken Woman assaults the senses with berries and chamomile, then a sexy and powerfully feminine lily rises from a dense thicket of forest green patchouli/chamomile madness. Smoky leather and vetiver soften the accord over time, and after about 10 hours, I get a sense of dense, shaded ivy on a spring morning, refreshing and …Read more

Creamy lips L101 "Ellis Red" is absolutely wonderul. It is really the color of blood, real blood, so it is red but also that orangey undertone of real blood. It looks great on my super very fair warm skintone and I bet it's perfect for everyone. It reflects such a natural human red with nothing artifical about the color, that I can wear it thick, or dabbed and smeared like a stain …Read more

Notes: tarragon, lemon, ylang ylang, Rock rose, frankincense, davana, labdanum ciste, patchouli, amber, vetiver, musk, myrrh -- in that order.
The tarragon, lemon, ylang ylang and rose make this perfume open like the first sniff from a garden on a cool summer morning. Surprise! I am alive, awake, lemony roses and herbs are nearby, and they smell cool and soothing. After a moment the idea of …

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

5.0

Jun/03/2016

Moist and dries over time to a beautiful glowing finish. The texture is light-medium and buildable, so it easily covered an age spot but never looked fake or like a coverup. It is sheer genius. I wore Chanel for 20 years, then IT, Armani, MAC, then Ellis Fass, and tried many others. This makeup is light years better and the cost is shockingly low. I recently swiped Chanel, Bourjois and Fass on my …Read more

Fragrances - Andy Tauer - L'Air du Desert Marocain by Andy Tauer

One Tiny Drop is enough! This is one extremely powerful perfume. Dab, do not douse... my eyes were tearing the first time I applied a few drops of my little sample. It takes about 2 hours to develop from cloying sweet (minus the powder thank goodness), to an ambery incense worthy of a goddess (or god). I think this is a truly unisex scent and I might even LOVE it on men. There is a lasting …Read more

Fragrances - Van Cleef & Arpels - Bois d'Iris

5.0

Jul/04/2014

At last, a beautiful dry woody iris perfume with no powder. I feel it has a kinship with the Gobin-Daude perfumes because the wood is so prominent and remains dry and desert-like, with only the flower adding its heady animalic sweetness, not added sugar or powder. Though the notes blend in a creamy accord, they are stand-out: you can pick them out if you really try. I love iris perfumes and wear …Read more

This is strawberry ambrosia, with whipped cream and all. It's a beautiful summery fruit salad of mostly strawberries and cream. As it dries down, it becomes softer and sweeter. The underlying saltiness makes me think I am at Atlantic City walking the boardwalk and enjoying a strawberry salt water taffy. It's a very happy perfume. I also detect just a hint of spice, closer to my skin. It …Read more

Fragrances - CREED - Spring Flower

5.0

May/24/2012

Not a long review because so much has been written. I just want to say that this is my go-to for Spring. On me, the fresh crisp notes last about a half hour, and then dry into the middle accord which (again, on me) is primarily a gentle sweetened rose with a hint of soapy undertones (the musk probably). It smells clean, fresh, invigorating, feminine, and sweet. It is fun to wear because I enjoy …Read more

Fragrances - Narciso Rodriguez - Narciso Rodriguez for her EDP

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2009

My nose detected a peppery burst, then with the smoothness and warmth of honey and beeswax, the perfume developed a slightly soapy clean quality. Orange blossoms mix into the beeswax lifting the soapy clean into a delightful floral, light and sweet, and very feminine. Multiple vanillas and musks seem to combine, as the drydown occurs a good 12 hours into the fragrance! The heart of this perfume …Read more
