Treatments (Face) - CLINIQUE - Smart Custom repair serum

5.0

Jun/13/2015

I never put much stock into the whole serum thing. Until the past year or 18 months, I'd always had normal leaning to oily skin and I did just fine by cleansing and using whatever moisturizer I was liking at the time (anything from extra virgin coconut oil to Lauder's Daywear to that Aveeno brightening one). The same thing went for my hair, as I used to have to wash it every single day …Read more

Fragrances - Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Amour de Cacao

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2011

This perfume is delicious! The opening smells like the chocolate outside of an Oreo cookie. Within a few minutes, it begins to dry down a bit and at that point, it smells more like the whole Oreo, with the creamy white middle. Truly, it smells as though I have taken the outside of a few Oreo cookies, crumbled them up and rubbed it on my skin. Amour De Cacao is really so simple and honest. …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - No 5 Eau Premiere

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/12/2011

Nearly two years ago, I had sworn off No.5, based on several factors. I had one too many unfortunate encounters with women that over-applied. Additionally, I feel that my nose wasn't quite mature enough...my tastes weren't yet refined. Around the age of 30, all of that changed. After falling in love with my #1, (Coco edp) and sort of training my nose to see the beauty in a few of …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Pure White Linen

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2011

I was gifted an adorable mini bottle of Pure White Linen. In vain, I tried several times over to wear her, but from start to finish, SHE WORE ME. I suspect that the culprits are tuberose, gardenia and cedar, as these three notes just sit on my skin in a most screechy, unpleasant way. I rarely get headaches, but nine times out of ten, tuberose and gardenia will induce a near-blinding pain right …Read more

Fragrances - Hermès - Kelly Caleche

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/18/2010

My girlfriend is a self-described "butch" woman. Her natural, fresh from the shower scent leans towards masculine. She uses body washes, deodorants and perfumes that are marketed to men and they mingle perfectly with her chemistry. I tried Kelly Caleche on myself and while I liked it, it failed to impress. On my skin, it never quite bloomed into anything more than a citrusy-floral. …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Dial - Clean & Soft- Soy & Almond Milk

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/02/2010

I like a variety of scented body washes. Floral/light musk/soapy-clean/feminine = Philosophy Amazing Grace and/or Inner Grace. Creamy/feminine/rich/classic = Caress (original). Straight-up/deodorant clean with a "fresh rain" accord = Dial Spring Water or Lever 2000. When I want some spicy musk with a clean scent, I borrow my sweetheart's Old Spice After Hours. **Until I can …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Chance Eau Fraiche Eau de Toilette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2010

Chance Eau Fraiche is everything that I wanted the original Chance to be. Eau Fraiche has plenty of character and it's contradictions actually compliment eachother rather than confuse. There is a sparkling, juicy freshness that is complimented by a dry, spicy warmth. There is an all-natural tart sweetness to Eau Fraiche that, when combined with the fresh green note of cedar, creates such an …Read more

Fragrances - Versace - Bright Crystal Eau de Toilette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/12/2010

I had an adorable mini bottle of this and I tried wearing it several times. Sadly, Bright Crystal simply does not wear well on me. To my nose, this is a very watery, quiet, floral that lacks personality. On my skin, Bright Crystal is very linear and falls totally flat. Tartness is one thing that I can enjoy in a perfume, (Euphoria's use of pomegranate creates a nice, crisp tartness on me) …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Chance

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2010

I was gifted a large bottle of Chance EDT. I tried it nearly a dozen times and while it is pleasant and wearable, I am not impressed. Recently, I decided to test the EDP. I needed to really give Chance a fair shot and 98% of the time, I do prefer an EDP over an EDT. Again, I found Chance to be wearable, at best. For me, Chance lacks character, that certain "wow factor" that would …Read more

Fragrances - KENZO - Kenzo Amour Eau Florale EdT

Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2010

It is just before dawn and I am strolling through a fragrant garden, surrounded by dewy, wild roses. There is a cool, gentle breeze on this mildly-warm Spring morning. Lovingly, I pick some of these moist red roses for my crystal vase and place them atop my modest, wicker dining table for two. As I take a bite of grapefruit, it's tart, bittersweet fragrance fills the air. I add some cream …Read more
