Perfume Review: Arizona Bloom by Floral Street

One of the latest fragrances released by the niche and vegan brand Floral Street, Arizona Bloom is a dry amber floral scent with strong presence of coconut, at first sight I thought it was a summer scent but after trying it out during different seasons it certainly works well anytime, specially for certain type of mood or personality.

Perfume Review: Crystal Noir EDP by Versace

Crystal Noir is a fragrance that already has its years in the perfume market and continues to be a highly recommended perfume in the mass market because its price is usually quite affordable for Versace and the fragrance itself conquers easily especially during the cold season.

Perfume Review: Lilas Exquis by Jacques Fath

Imagine yourself walking through a field of lilacs that just bloomed, that was basically how I felt when I tried Jacques Fath’s Lilas Exquis. Panouge Paris is in charge of creating fragrances for the brand as it does for Isabey, another niche brand that I never tire of recommending on my blog. In the case of Isabey, true floral notes were achieved, particularly gardenia, which is very difficult to obtain and the vast majority fail and end with an artificial scent. Something similar happened with lilacs, all the fragrances that I tested had an artificial smell far from the true one, so it caused me a lot of curiosity and I did not think twice when I saw that Jaques Fath had an exclusive fragrance of this flower.

Review: Huda Beauty, Mercury Retrograde Eyeshadow Palette

If you ask me about one brand with the best eye shadow palettes out there, well without a doubt I would said Huda Beauty, from the texture, quality, pigmentation to the shades selection. I previously tried two palettes from the brand I was quite surprised by the high quality that not even other top luxury brands have.

The Beautiful Mind Series: Vol.1 Intelligence and Fantasy, Vol.2 Precision and Grace

If we talk about avant-garde perfumery, without a doubt Escentric Molecules is one of the brands that tops the list, Molecule 01 basically became a cult fragrance. But Geza Schoen did’t stop there, he developed other lines of fragrances that didn’t have much publicity and became kind of a secret for people who are more deeply into the world of perfumery, until today that we are going to know more about the Schoen’s work.

Perfume Review: Black Orchid by Tom Ford

If we talk about designers who are doing playing the beauty game quite hard we have to mention Tom Ford, his perfumes became quite popular and just like other luxury brands like Jo Malone, Aerin, etc under the wing of Estee Lauder is has a high price tag, the question is..is really worth it or is just a brand hype? I have tried quite a few of the fragrances from this house and yes some of them are not worth the money at all and others are really good and that’s the case of Black Orchid.

Review: Sculpted By Aimee, Cream Luxe Collection

When it comes to make up I always found creamy texture far easier to work with than powders probably because I blending with my fingers I manage to build up everything faster and just like I want it, so this time I come with three new in from Sculpted by Aimee the successful brand from the Irish make up artist Aimee Connolly, I tried a couple of her products before and they are amazing, well the brand has this new Cream Luxe Collection which are basically are individual creamy blush, highlighter and bronzer, a minimalist luxe collection for a quickly make up look without so many products.

Review: Olverum, Body Polish

Exfoliating the body is probably one of the most satisfying things to do in the shower, obviously don’t do it everyday because the skin needs its microbiome but once or twice a week is more than enough, I tend to quite careful with the type of body polishes I use because I don’t want to damage my skin by using something too aggressive, this why today I come with a wonderful recommendation that is not only friendly with our bodies but also with the environment.

Perfume Experience: Sommelier du Parfum, A Service to Discover Niche Perfumery

Niche perfume brands are increasing more and more their participation in the market, but very few of them offer sample sizes to try them out, many times we do have to go to specialised perfumes stores that we have to be honest if you are not in London (or any big city) you would find it a bit complicated and in some cases expensive to get there, another factor is how many fragrances we can properly try in one go till our nose lose track of everything. There are so many brands, many olfactory families, notes, sillage, etc that trying to select one is basically a really a hard work

Perfume Review: Toy 2 Bubble Gum by Moschino

The spring comes with some new releases in perfumery and certainly one of the most cheerful not only with the bottle design but also interesting notes is Toy 2 Bubble Gum by Moschino. Not long ago I posted about Toy 2 and how much I loved the fragrance, this new flanker as the name says includes bubble gum on it so I couldn’t be more excited about it. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Toy 2 Bubble Gum by Moschino”

Perfume Review: Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet by Guerlain

New release from the Mon Guerlain family, thinking already in the summer, I was curious to see if they improved the quality or not, as I like the original Mon Guerlain but is not really a favourite of mine, is a very generic perfume and I would much prefer other options from the brand hence why I don’t have it in my collection. I didn’t like any of the flankers in fact I have two bottles of two of them and I’m seriously thinking to sell them as I never reach out for them. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet by Guerlain”

Perfume Review: Decadence by Marc Jacobs

When it comes to Marc Jacobs fragrances I honestly never understood the hype about the daisy perfumes, the are so generic and pretty poor performance I guess the bottle design do all the marketing but I hardly ever hear anyone mentioning the Decadence line, the first one came out in 2015 and even still today I keep finding so unique compared to many other options in the market. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Decadence by Marc Jacobs”

Lone Design Club: Discovering Independent Conscious Brands

When it comes to fast fashion, consumerism out of control is hard to develop a conscious shopping habits, we are invaded by massive brands with many times lack of ethics from the materials and working force they use, environmental impact, animal testing, and many other things that sometimes we ignore. In the other hand I also feel like the exclusivity, the unique design of certain products is something we are missing. Continue reading “Lone Design Club: Discovering Independent Conscious Brands”

Sunday Pampering with Thalgo Indoceane Collection

For a couple of weeks this has been my Sunday pampering routine, I have always dedicate time for myself just before starting another week, a way to recharge energies and feel good with myself and that includes obviously my body.

Perfume Review: Basilico and Fellini by Vilhelm Parfumerie

I was waiting for the spring to properly talk about a perfume that I have tried and loved and is mostly for the warm weather season, I’m talking about Basilico & Fellini  from Vilhelm Parfumerie. A green fresh unisex fragrance probably one of the best I have tried in a while, specially since there are not purely green releases lately. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Basilico and Fellini by Vilhelm Parfumerie”

Review: Stila Spring 2021 Collection

When it comes to spring/summer season I tend to switch my make up routine to something lighter, fresher and natural, heavy foundation, extreme highlighter and blush with a huge eye make up look always have been a huge no from me as I like a more sophisticated and elegant look, also because in the warm weather any heavy make up would practically start to melt giving us the urgency to remove it all. Stila did think about this so they introduced a simple but effective make up collection. Continue reading “Review: Stila Spring 2021 Collection”

Perfume Review: Molecule+ Collection by Escentric Molecules

In 2006, Escentric Molecules launched Molecule 01, a single aroma-molecule in a bottle. The molecule was Iso E Super, an abstract synthetic in a lab at IFF. Now Molecule 01 gets a plus one.
In three iterations, it is paired with a single scent ingredient: Mandarin Patchouli and Iris. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Molecule+ Collection by Escentric Molecules”

Perfume Review: Bright Crystal by Versace
