Lotions/ Creams - Neutrogena - Body Lotion Light Sesame Formula

Dec/01/2014

I get so annoyed with most other body lotions; they can feel heavy and often contain silicone for a supposed smoothing effect, but it really just feels like they are sitting on top and suffocating my skin. They almost feel dirty and get on my nerves.

Not this lotion, though. It sinks in, my skin can breathe, and my skin feels silky smooth. I love the fragrance; others have …

Fragrances - Donna Karan - Cashmere Mist Eau de Parfum

Oct/12/2014

I've bought this twice and passed it on to others. I really don't know why, as I keep getting a craving for it and regret ever getting rid of it. I think it is because I wanted something more "perfumey". Cashmere Mist is a clean, bubble bath kind of scent that some might not find interesting enough. However, if you keep in mind the minimal aesthetic of Donna …Read more

I switch laundry detergents all the time. I've used natural, mainstream, homemade, powder, liquid....I guess laundry is a sort of hobby of mine. I hate a lot of the fragrances of the grocery store detergents, and find that their scents give me a headache or clash with my perfumes. I don't know how many bottles of detergent I've donated to the animal shelter! Zum Patchouli Wash …Read more

I can best describe this in textures. NR for Her edt is like snuggling a soft knit blanket through a layer of tulle. Or like a dancer's satiny leotard under a starched tutu. Soft and cuddly, but diffused through a layer of something a little scratchy. Entirely beautiful and womanly in an abstract way.

I smelled Bottega Veneta one day, out casually sniffing. I hadn't seen any ads or listed notes to color my impression, I just held that strip up to my nose and nearly floated through the store. What *is* this? I couldn't figure out what I was smelling, I just knew it was amazing. And different than every thing else that was new. Bottega Veneta has an old soul. A modern take on a …Read more

I don't know why I don't get this one out more. It is supposed to be a calming herbal and woody scent, to bring some balance to one's chaos. I think it smells like a sandalwood soda, if there were ever such a thing. Effervescent and woody, with something like a cherry apple compote and spices. There isn't any fruit listed in the notes though. It isn't foody, just …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Gwendolyn-Mary Pavane No. 1

Pavane 1:
A smooth, creamy fruit scent, with a tropical edge, and something with it that is green and fresh, and a little floral. The notes come together in a way that reminds me of the fresh opening of Coco Mademoiselle (the lychee and orange blossom?) over the mango-melon lifesaver candy, but only mildly sweet. Because it is a perfume oil, it starts off with a good amount of strength …

Concealers - CLINIQUE - Airbrush Concealer

Sep/22/2013

HG Product! So I have dark circles/pigmentation around my eyes, redness around my nose, a little darkness around my lips. My skin is fair, and I have to use some kind of concealer to give me a healthy and even look. The airbrush concealer isn't heavy--it just somehow becomes part of my skin and is invisible over it, making it look perfect. It doesn't cover all the broken …Read more

Fragrances - Auric Blends - Egyptian Goddess

fromKelly9

Sep/17/2013

Bought my roll-on from Whole Foods 2 years ago. Egyptian Goddess is a light floral musk with a "golden" smelling musk and no sharp edges whatsoever. It doesn't smell flowery to me, but I think those flowers give this scent a light sweetness. The oil is close wearing but long lasting and enveloping. Inexpensive. This would make a perfect signature scent if I didn't rotate …Read more

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Borneo 1834 Eau de Parfum

Sep/03/2013

Borneo is a patchouli masterpiece. It is as if Angel traded in her glitter lip gloss and clear platform heels for a deep burgundy lipstick and velvet smoking slippers. It is a smooth, dark, polished and sophisticated scent. And dry, dry, dry! No sugar or berries here, and no one will confuse you with dessert, even though it does contain cocoa.

As a side-note, no other perfume has …
