Fragrances - PENHALIGON'S - Lily & Spice

Jul/09/2013

This fragrance opens with a soft dewy lily, not overly loud and yet still very much present. It has an earthiness that keeps it grounded and allows the flower to bloom as if in your garden, not a flower that you would already find in the florist shop, clean and denuded of it's pollen pods. The heart notes allow the vanilla to peek out and add a soft warmth. While there is a hint of musk in …Read more

Fragrances - Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Perfumes - Fleur de Comores

5.0

Jul/09/2013

I think this description is spot on "to evoke summer evenings and suntanned skin"; it's tropical with the wet greenery, ylang and jasmine but not suntan lotion, gourmand or artificial.

It opens with a dewy green note and the banana like scent that ylang can produce; sweet but fresh too. As the heart emerges the ylang is still present (but not banana like anymore) and a …

On me this opens with a huge bouquet of Lily's that still have the pollen pods attached. Very realistic and heady. I don't get a lot of the clove, but a lily is quite spicy so it may just meld with the natural essence of the flower at this point. As it morphs into the heart notes the lily stays true, but softens and allows the vanilla to come forward; it is still all about the lily, but …Read more

Styling Products - PHILIP B - Maui Wowie Beach Mist

Jun/24/2013

I bought this because I have long, fine wavy hair and I love to wear it natural at times. I liked that it was made with more oils and less salt product. I've tried B&B beach spray and it was really drying to my hair, so I had high hopes this would be different.

It sprays on in a very fine mist that is even and has great coverage. What I don't like about the application …

First let me say that I have long, fine hair, but a lot of it and it has natural beachy waves/curl to it. I bought this product because I have horses, live in AZ(read dry and hot) and need to wash my hair daily due to the sweat, dirt and horse care products that migrate onto my person. As this was a sulfate free product I thought it would be really gentle and it is advertised as moisturizing and …Read more

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Chergui Eau de Parfum

Aug/09/2012

I was given a sample of this at Barney's in Scottsdale and I was exceptionally skeptical because Lutens can be a bit over the top, and not in a good way.

This spicy, leathery, creamy and very voluptuous scent, brought me into the Lutens fold. It warms up on my skin and just melts into it, morphing from the incense, hay like opening to the spicy santal and tobacco leaf with a hint …

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - A La Nuit

As with all Lutens it's either a love or hate relationship it seems. For whatever reason his fragrances evoke a very intense yes or no in the wearer. I have sampled many of this line, own a few, and while I can appreciate them for the art that they are, most I would never wear.

A la nuit is one I do quite like and I do wear. For whatever reason on me it is a very soft, almost …

I love this on my husband. I know it says it's unisex, but after my wearing it for a day or two I really think it's more suited to men. On him I love, love, love it, on me it's meh.... The warm spicy scent of ginger rounded out with honey and amber makes for a very, very snuggle your nose into his chest worthy scent. Stays close to him but I get subtle whiffs as he walks by …Read more

Jan/26/2012

This was my first "real" perfume purchase when I was in my early 20's. It was my signature and the only scent that I wore. It still holds a special place in my heart and fragrance wardrobe. For me this scent is a little black dress and high heels, but on the flip of that, I can and have worn it with jeans and a tank top. With it's bright sparkling top notes, warm cozy dry down …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coco Eau de Toilette

Jan/26/2012

Ah, Coco...starts out very in your face then settles into a very ladylike, but sexy scent. This is for a very confident woman who exudes class and sophistication... think buisness suit, but with the naughty lingere under it. You just have to get past the uptight exterior to the soft, sultry, femme fatale interior. I love this fragrance, but alas my horse does not so I don't wear it anymore …Read more
