Why can't I love this. Why oh why!

Notes- written, Stash had so many of the notes I just adore, however on my skin...a medical supply closet bathed in elemi where a mass is being held.

On my skin, Stash pulled something extra++ benzoiny almost medicinal that just killed it for me. I was stuck on Band-aids and Band-aids were definitely stuck all over me, lol! A migraine …

Fragrances - Bottega Veneta - Bottega Veneta EDP

Bottega Veneta:
For me, an unexpected homage to Grace Kelly

Gloves and Grace go hand in hand. She wore them wherever and whenever she took a notion like her signature Ray Bans and double strand pearls. These are her favorite Dent leather riding gloves. Their warm, buttery sueded interior has rubbed gently against her Château Krigler 12 while the working end is all earth, open air …

Usually when a perfume does a flanker, we know what to expect to some degree of accuracy. Call it a sport or a blue and we can expect a citrus, marine or aquatic note, call it noir and here comes the patchouli truck, but what do you do to capture the spirit of a fragrance, especially one that comes out swinging damn sexy like Joan Crawford with a baseball bat on date night. Well, the House of …Read more

Fragrances - diptyque - Fleur de Peau

Apr/01/2018

At first I was incredibly underwhelmed. I wanted a soft, warm kitten like, close to the skin scent with a maybe a little clean musk thrown in to make it extra snugly and close to the skin as promised. Well, uh no. What I did get an hour later in the dry down, a surprise! A freshly washed and swaddled bundle of joy and not in a tacky Johnson and Johnson's/ Love's Baby Soft way. Yep, want …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Oud and Bergamot

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2017

Let me steady myself.... This is a painfully sexy, refined man who turns your head as he walks confidently by in his crisp bespoke ensemble. He is powerful, dangerous and unapologetically masculine. Don't expect your sweet head-shop oud potion here, this is a dark shadowy one that uses bergamot to barely crisp it's black edges like a cool wet stone. The spice is peppered hot and the …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - KORRES Natural Products - Body Butter - Jasmine

Dec/05/2016

Korres Body Butters- (Jasmine) Almost Ambe. A scent that envelops the skin with a hug and a warm mug of Jasmine bud tea while serving a touch of delish creamy steamed rice on the side. This not your bathroom grade, urinal cake Jasmine, it is pure, innocent and delicious! One of the most feminine fragrances of all the Korres line.

How do they do it? Seriously! How?

As a Union …

Deodorants - Crystal - Crystal Body Deodorant Stick

My choice of this brand is the original rock stick. I find the spray and roll-on less effective.

A life Changer! I really took my time with this review as safe deodorant is important to us all.
As a TV/ Film Makeup Artist and Beauty Editor I would never recommend a product I do not truly believe in. I know what is out there and this is the one I feel confident asking my family and …

Korres Shower Gels- (Guava) - I find it a cool toned beach scent without the sugary, synthetic fruit eraser or plastic coconut headache. Super sexy! Perfect for either a man or woman.

Korres Body Butters- (Fig) I find it a scent evocative of Summer spent in the South of France. Cool, dry figs in the spicy warmth of the soleil de français. Unisex Fragrance
