Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Shalimar Ode a la Vanille

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2010

Well I am smitten! I am a fan of Shalimar, of Light/Legere and to Eau... So I had to try this one. At first without comparing, it seemed this was identical to reg Shalimar, but the vanilla nuance is there. Those who never liked Shalimar will probably not like this as they are very similar but where reg Shalimar has that waxy/gas note early on (which I love) but sometimes find it too serious for …Read more

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - rahat loukoum

okay I won't go into describing the notes..... done many times before.

So here's a practical comparison:
Sampling both Serge Lutens Rahat Loukoum and Keiko Mecheri's Loukhoum and I am trying to figure out which is either FB worthy or worth getting a larger decant of.

I've had both on for 2 hours and the main difference in the drydown seems to that …

What a letdown. I swear I am THE DK fragrance lover.... own and love Black Cashmere, Cashmere Mist EDT/ETP/Luxe, DK Signature, Wenge, Labdanum.... but Iris..... boohooo not for me.

It's a pretty green floral that I will admit is perfect for spring and summer. It's light and definitely a day or office frag. I'd even spritz it on my four-year twins if they wanted …

Fragrances - Trussardi - Inside

Apr/25/2010

Sunny autumn Sunday morning eating a brioche au beurre and dipping pieces in a bowl of cafe au lait in Montreal. Instant memories!
Inside is that delicious gourmand that is requires some nuzzling, not a pushy or saccharine gourmand at all. The sweetness is soft and is not too foody. It does have a pastry and cafe feel to it but it's delicate a is more a skin scent. The bottle is …

Liquid - Bobbi Brown - Moisture Rich Foundation SPF15

I have been using Skin foundation along with the BB Hydrating Cream but was finding that my pore were showing up with the winter dryness. So I got a sample of this foundation (same shade as my skin fntdn) and LOVE!!! no more pores. I am still layering it on top of a good amount of my BB BB Hydrating Cream.

The look is not heavy at all and looks dewy for the first hour only, then it …

Fragrances - KENZO - Jungle L'Elephant Eau de Parfum

Mar/22/2010

I need to admit I bought this unsniffed!
That cute bottle with elephant was calling my name. And good thing I bought a 5ml mini because I can't imagine ever buying a larger bottle of this stuff. It's been on my arms for about an hour and the crazy cinamon nose-tingling sensation is finally dying down a tad. I don't think I can say much more than I feel like a walking …

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Spiritueuse Double Vanille

Jan/08/2010

So first let me start off by saying, I noted as Buy Again... but really what I will be doing is purshasing another decant to tie me over until I can buy the real thing. :)
What a lovely vanilla for those who don't what the angel food / cupcake type of vanilla scent.
Guerlain's SDV starts off with a burst of dark vanilla extract and bourbon! This mellows out over the next hour …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Dana Classic Fragrances - Love's Baby Soft

Dec/09/2009

Okay first let me say, I tend to buy niche perfumes and am a tad of a frag snob.

So why am I rating this as high and packaging as high... well, because I love the fact that the bottle hasn"t changed and this is an AMAZING frag for what it is.... retro to the late 70s and early 80s for me. And actually wearable.... I smell like I just stepped out of the shower and have a soft …

Treatments (Eye) - Bobbi Brown - EXTRA Eye Repair Cream

Dec/05/2009

Finally for everyone who loves BB's Hydrating Eye cream but wanted something just a little more moisturizing.... she now has it!!!

It smells and feels like a cross between the the Cream and the Balm (which btw is much much thicker greenish balm) and makes me wonder if she didn't just toss the two together in the blender to come up with this..... but hey, so far I am LOVING …

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Chrome Eyeshadow in Pewter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2009

The most perfect metallic colour ever!!!! Pewter is not a cool icy silver nor a warm yellow gold..... it sits right in the middle as is the most versatile neutral metallic eyeshadow that works with any look.

Layer over a shadow primer, it covers as a velvety metallic and is not sparkly or shimmery at all. Great colour payoff too! I have used it over all my lid and then I blend it with …
