Fragrances - Hermès - Jour d'Hermes Absolu

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/17/2014

One of the best Hermes offerings recently. It stays true to the Jean Claude Ellena artistry of being elegant yet discernible. It starts with a mild tart whiff of rhubarb and grapefruit and moves on to a garden of flowers that seems to be in complete sync with each other. Imagine entering a copse of trees only to find a flower garden in the heart of it. That is what Jour d'Hermes Absolu is …Read more

Fragrances - Avon - Sweet Honesty

As everyone has pointed out, it is a, pretty and powdery scent. It is best used right after a shower, when the freshness of a clean feeling merges with the powder soft scent of Sweet Honesty. I got it in Manila for $8, brand new. Not bad at all.

Fragrances - Philosophy - Pure Grace Eau de Toilette

A simple, flat, quiet scent. It does not offend, but it does not enthrall either. I bought it on a sweltering Los Angeles day when none of those great perfumes would tame the heat, and then sprayed it on while walking about the mall. Then I got compliments.

Fragrances - Prada - Candy Eau de Parfum

Finally, a perfume that is true to its name: a real arm candy. Aside from it being the only Prada I can afford, I like that Candy does not pretend to be anything else. I found myself sniffing my wrist the whole time, savoring all the goodness of one of my favorite tastes and scents (caramel), without the guilt.

Fragrances - Bulgari - Rose Essentielle EDP

I bought the EDP in the charms/purse spray edition. Sprayed it on my wrist and sensed it insist, insist, insist itself oh so gracefully on me. It is not a shy rose, nor is it a daring rose. It is elegant but haughty. Aloof but ready. A rose for me. :-)

Certainly much more wearable than Angel for me. Great to layer with Nivea body lotion or any lotion that has a mild scent. Best to wear on cool autumn days.

Fragrances - The Body Shop - White Gardenia (Eau De Toilette)

May/16/2012

It's not bad, mildly pleasing. Probably best to wear after a shower, when the skin smells fresh and the freshness of this perfume merges with that after shower scent of the skin. Lasting power is average but for the price, it's certainly better than the gardenia perfumes out there. The body butter is very nice too.

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Maison Martin Margiela - Untitled EDP

4.0

May/02/2012

You know a perfume is interesting when it creates confusion and "diffusion" among people. I find that is what Untitled does. I did smell the bright, almost pungent green opening, the incense, the musk -- but what I did not expect was the smoky leathery smoke on me. It was very strange, and good. I guess the name or no name befits this offering from Maison Martin Margiela. Your …Read more
