Fragrances - diptyque - Vetyverio

4.0

Yesterday

This is a fresh take on vetiver. I find this scent to be fairly unisex, like most of Diptyque's scents are. These days most fragrances are unisex in my opinion. There is grapefruit in the scent, which makes it very fresh and almost juicy. This performs well in warmer and colder weather. The EDP version is a bit more woody and deeper, whereas this is fresher.

Fragrances - diptyque - Volutes EDT

Yesterday

This is another high quality fragrance from Diptyque. I think of it as a honeyed tobacco scent. Very distinct. I really enjoy this scent in colder weather. It seems the EDT is harder to find or discontinued. The EDP is quite nice too (and easier to find). The scent also has a warmth to it with cinnamon and opoponax. I can also pick up on some iris, which gives it a nice powdery scent.

Fragrances - diptyque - Tam Dao

Created with Sketch.

Yesterday

In the past I have had Tam Dao in EDT concentration. Right now I have it in EDP concentration. I am a sandalwood lover, and it is very high quality in this fragrance. Diptyque's website says the sandalwood used in the fragrance is from East India (Mysore) and takes extractions from trees over 60 years old. I can also pick up on the cedar and cypress. It is definitely a woody scent. The EDT …Read more

This is a woody/spicy scent for men. Top notes are bergamot and mandarin orange; middle notes are ginger and patchouli; base notes are vetiver, cardamom and sage. I find the scent lasts on the skin decently, I can smell it hours and hours throughout the day. I like that it is fresh, but also woody and spicy at the same time. This scent works well in the summer, as well as in colder months like …Read more

This is a HG product for me! It has helped my skin so much. I've strayed here and there and stopped using it, but I have always come back and now always have it in my cabinet. I like the gel formula, it spreads well and is effective at clearing out blackheads and gently exfoliating skin. This gives my skin a beautiful glow and my skin feels so smooth. The product is so gentle, but effective …Read more

I bought this in the Dramatically Different Oil Control Gel with the blue cartridge for uneven skin tone/pores. When you first put this together, you have to pump it about 4-5 times for the blue fluid to come out. I found after continued use my skin looked better, more even, and it did help control my oily skin. This is a cool idea and I'm interested in trying other cartridges next time. I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - GUERLAIN - Super Aqua-Serum

Yikes! This serum is HEAVILY fragranced. So much that I can still smell it after applying it. Aside from that, I couldn't even see myself using this consistently as it wasn't as hydrating as other serums I've used. I would definitely recommend trying a sample before getting this. Fragrance is not skincare. Note: this also comes in a "lighter" texture.

Masks - GUERLAIN - Abeille Royale Repairing Honey Gel Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

This is a mask from Guerlain in their popular Abeille Royale collection of skincare. It comes in a jar for 50 mL, and a new tube for 30 mL. Personally I prefer the tube, as I don't like jar packaging that much. Also the tube is good for travel and less expensive (although the 50 mL ends up being a better value). My main complaint about this product is it's heavily scented, and I …Read more

Fragrance - Dior - Dior Homme Parfum

This one is hard to find, but it's worth it! It comes in one size, 75 mL. It has great performance as an EDP. The main notes are iris, leather, and sandalwood. It reminds me of the original Dior Homme from 2005 (before it was reformulated in 2011) with the lipstick note (that is the iris that gives off that vibe). I could definitely see a woman wearing this as well. I'm not sure if …Read more
