12 New Fragrances to Explore This Summer

I am a fragrance junkie. While I don't consider myself any kind of expert in deciphering notes and breaking down a scent, I thoroughly enjoy experiencing new scents, exploring new notes, and testing my boundaries. I find the ritual of trying a new scent for the first time, and experiencing it's evolution on my skin, intoxicating. At the same time I find the sensation of knowing I detect a note that is familiar, yet not being able to pinpoint it, very frustrating. But the more years that pass in my fragrance adventure the better I

Elizabeth Arden Untold Absolu Review

Elizabeth Arden Untold Absolu ($85/50ml) is a warmer, sweeter version of the original Absolu. I get a very sweet plum scent with a comfy dose of amber and vanilla. It has quite heavy sillage and I find one or two spritzes is all I need to keep it from being too overbearingly sweet. If you love intoxicatingly sweet and warm sensual scents you should definitely check it out. I am not a fan of overly sweet fragrances so I find this a little tough to wear for the first hour or so but then once it has settled into my skin it smells

I had a scent in my mind that I considered clean that I was unable to articulate into fragrance notes until I started delving
