There’s Only One Word Needed to Describe Tom Ford Black Orchid – Sexy

Tom Ford Black Orchid ($80/30ml) is one sexy scent. I can think of no better way to describe it. It is bold, unapologetic, and so sensual. When you first apply Black Orchid it can come off a little sharp, almost off-putting. But once it starts to dry down the beautiful complexity and richness of this sultry scent will envelop you and win you over. You will not go unnoticed wearing Black Orchid. It has amazing lasting power and silage. I adore it. It comes in black glass bottle with a hand-tied cord and a goldtone plaque with

Have you tried any scents from the Demeter Fragrance Library?

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette – Photos and Review

Everything about Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette, from the box, to the bottle, to the juice inside, is pretty and girly. The white box is outlined in pink ribbon detail with the little strapless black dress with pink ribbon prominently displayed, and the delightfully feminine font. I absolutely adore this bottle. The cap in a modern take on an inverted heart. Around the base of the cap is a Guerlain ribbon detail. The cap closes very securely onto the bottle. The bottle itself is clear glass revealing the soft pink

Lancôme Trésor Eau De Parfum Lumineuse Review

I still remember back in high school, (and yes for me that was a long time ago), browsing the beauty department of my local Sears and trying on the fragrances. One that captured my heart was the original Lancôme Trésor. I knew it was probably a little too mature for my age but there was something about the ultra feminine and sophisticated scent that had me going back to it again and again. Well there is a new incarnation of Trésor. The Lancôme Trésor Eau De Parfum Lumineuse. This new and fresh take on Trésor is a reinvention of

The Rebirth of Fumblings of a Fledgling Fumehead

I just realized it has been well over a year and a half since I have posted anything about my foray into the incredible world of fragrance. I started a series called Fumblings of a Fledgling Fumehead back at the end of 2011 when I was beginning my exploration into the world of perfume with my post on finding sources of fragrance samples and discovery sets. I was completely infatuated AND completely uneducated! I wanted to share my experiences with everyone as a way to hopefully inspire others to explore, as well as a way to

Lise Watier Something Sweet Eau de Toilette and Sweet Lips Yummy Lip Balm ~ Photos and Review

Lise Watier has launched a new fragrance exclusive to Shoppers Drug Mart called Something Sweet (Eau de Toilette Spray 50ml/$59 CAD). Now typically if you threw the terms sweet and gourmand at me in reference to a perfume my instinctive reaction would be to gag. I don't do heavy "sweet" scents. Lise Watier Something Sweet however, was a pleasant surprise. While it does have the sweet element, it is also light and refreshing at the same time. In fact it is quite delightful! Something Sweet is the cheerful new scent that captures

Springtime Daydreams with Demeter Fragrance Library Pick Me Up Cologne Sprays in Jasmine and Peony ~ Review

Have you tried any scents from the Demeter Fragrance Library? I have been perusing the website and I am completely flabbergasted! They have cologne sprays for every scent imaginable under the sun. From Jelly Belly jelly beans to Laundramat, Margaritas to Dirt. Play Doh and Snow. And of course every kind of floral you can imagine. I can't believe what I am seeing!

Coach Love Eau de Parfum Fragrance Review

I have been testing out a lab sample of a lovely new fragrance from Coach called Love. It is indeed as romantic a scent as it's name implies. Coach captures the richest, deepest and most visceral emotion in the celebrated new fragrance Coach Love, a contemporary, romantic and sensual woody floral. It’s modern love in a bottle. The scent is unique and signature in its artful combination of a variety of classic ingredients with a distinctly textural approach to create a modern, chic and urban scent. It’s the most romantic

What Better Way to Celebrate Valentine’s Day Than With His and Her’s Scents? ~ Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb and Spicebomb Review

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with his and her's scents courtesy of Viktor & Rolf? Flowerbomb is a millefleurs around the freesia, Centifolia rose, osmanthus and Sambac jasmine, supported by a background of patchouli. With Flowerbomb (50ml $125/ 90ml $185) I get a lot of sweetness and warmth from the patchouli, amber, and tangerine notes. I am usually more a fan of more green florals but Flowerbomb has just the right amount of cuddliness for me. It is a welcome departure from my usual scents and a
