Fragrances - By Kilian - Back to Black

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2012

I knew that when By Kilian did a very generous sample giveaway on Facebook and I was a lucky recipient that I would love at least one of the fragrances in my sample pouches, back to black was the one for me.
It is sweet, very sweet at the start, which I did not expect to like, this is then tempered down with the swirls of cherry tobacco smoke and vanilla, this is the bit that I love (I am …

Fragrances - Le Labo - Vanille 44

Nov/27/2011

I am still kicking myself that I ordered a sample of this perfume, £6 plus the fact that I could only buy it during November should have sounded very loud alarm bells in my head but oh no I was sucked in with the exclusive only through November pr that le labo use. I sprayed and did exactly what I told myself I should not do and that was fall in love with, I am not a lover of out and out …Read more

Fragrances - Ormonde Jayne - Frangipani Absolute

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2011

This was the first fragrance that I tried from my Sample box from Ormonde Jayne as I felt from reading the compostions that I would like this fragrance the most.
I will not lie, intially it was not love, but only because I expected something more tropical and more creamy, what I got in the initial spray was fruit, or limes to be precise, I am not a fruity kind of fragrance girl so I …

Jul/15/2011

This was the last sample that I tried from my Ormonde Jayne sample box, as reading the composition I did not think I was going to like this fragrance, in fact I had decided on buying Frangipani, followed by Tiare then Tolu. that was until I tried Ormonde Woman, wow this had me at hello when I first sprayed it, it was exactly the fragrance that I had in my head that I wanted to own (but did not …Read more

Fragrances - PENHALIGON'S - Artemisia

Jul/05/2011

This is a nice pretty 'safe' floral, it is not ground breaking in any way but is a fragrance that you could easily wear every day and not annoy people. The dry down is quite sweet and creamy, the SA was also wearing this perfume and on her I could detect a a slight citrus note but sadly on me this was not present. Is it bottle worthy, for me personally I don't think it is, as I …Read more

I really wanted to love this fragrance after reading so many reviews on it but sadly it is not a perfume that I can pull off, It would be like doing the walk of shame every day that you wear this perfume, I would love to be this 'bad' girl, who doesn't? but I m just not her.
I can however appreciate this perfume for the masterpieve that it is, the dry down for example is …

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Un Lys

May/13/2011

Firstly a big thanks to other MUA reviewers who rated this perfume, I bought this perfume based on the reviews given without smelling a sample beforehand (which considering its E130.00 shipped is a little bit stupid) the other deciding factor was it is not available in a retail shop over here so has to be ordered from Paris, which to my mind makes it that bit more special and exclusive and I …Read more

Another really unusual fragrance from Serge Lutens, I did not expect to like this one but I really really loved it, I could not stop smelling my wrist and was gutted when my tester ran out especially as I cant seem to get this perfume in the UK unless I order it from the Serge Lutens site.
I get the sweet and bitter, I especially get the absinthe which is what I thought I would not like …

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - A La Nuit

Apr/11/2011

The Jasmine in this one is very evident and whilst I do tend to like floral perfumes, I find there is a very fine line between a great floral and smelling like an old lady, this one for me personally was just too reminiscent of what my Gran used to wear years ago. I did however toy with buying this one, it was a toss up between this and nuit de cellophane, I chose the latter because it was just …Read more

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Nuit de Cellophane

Apr/11/2011

What an unusual perfume this is, on the plus side you will not smell like anybody else whilst wearing this perfume, it is a long way off any mainstream perfume I have ever smelt. The description of night flowers smelt through the cellophane is a really good description of this perfume. The intial spritz, I got the night flowers and it was a gorgeous creamy floral which is typical of the types of …Read more
