Perfume Review: Love Osmanthus by Atelier Cologne

I have to admit I wasn’t a big fan of colognes, I had that idea in my mind they were more for men, poor generic scent, not long lasting, etc I just didn’t care to have a proper look and give a change, but since I studied perfumery and chemistry I started to appreciate more the quality that certain brands offer and Atelier Cologne is one of the game changers on reinvent colognes.

Scentful: Designer Fragrance Subscription Box

In the perfume market there are thousands of options to choose and sometime we limit our selves to the most famous, the latest releases or certain brands and sure many times we can go test one, two, three and so on and we start to get confused, our nose can’t make any difference anymore and we get lost in the process, so the lovely options out there, should we spray in the paper or the skin. Now we heard plenty of times about subscription boxes full of make up or skincare, but what about perfume?di Continue reading “Scentful: Designer Fragrance Subscription Box”

Review: Antipodes, Manuka Honey Skin Care Collection

My skincare routine has been quite exciting lately since I have included three products from the New Zealander brand Antipodes, not only for the ingredients, also many of their products are vegetarian (some even vegan), it’s a natural sustainable brand with a deep connection with natural ingredients and ecological awareness proof of that is that all their packaging is recyclable. Continue reading “Review: Antipodes, Manuka Honey Skin Care Collection”

Perfume Review: Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée by Chanel

If we have to talk about perfumes that are very popular but still I don’t like that it would be Coco Mademoiselle, a mega bomb of patchouli than even for my nose is too much and I think this perfume is quite popular because is Chanel and is far more modern than No 5 to use, but still Coco Mademoiselle came out about two years later than J’adore another perfume I can’t stand but is still popular and have those notes that were popular back then so every time I smell them I can’t help to think of a woman on her 40s, 50s. Probably another reason why I use even having a bottle is because..everybody wears it, just like Black Opium or La Vie est Belle is a perfume that would make you easily forgettable because so many girls have made it their signature fragrance. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée by Chanel”

Perfume Review: Molecule 01 and Escentric 01 by Escentric Molecules

Niche perfumery has increased in popularity in the last couple of years thanks to some niche houses that opened up the way for more people to discover them and enjoy alternatives to the massive consume market. One of those brands was clearly Escentric Molecules with the 01. Molecule 01 and Escentric 01 were very popular back in the day, anyone following British beauty youtubers probably remember the hype back then. Over hyped/promoted products tend to put me off to try them out, but then this year I got closer to the brand with the release of Molecule 05 and Escentric 05 and specialised perfume writers and friends who tried it suggested me to review the 01 and 02 range because “they were amazing” So here we are.

Review: AA Skincare, Frankincense & Rose Face Toner

IMG_20200118_193339

Toners could be one of the biggest allies on your skincare or one of your worst enemies depending on their formulation, I’m also against of paying huge amounts of money for a product that is supposed to be simple and not with a bunch of ingredients that should be supplied by serums, moisturisers etc. Continue reading “Review: AA Skincare, Frankincense & Rose Face Toner”

Not long ago in the blog we talked about essences, more particularly the Lumiere Marine, Clarifying Water Essence by Thalgo, this particular product was mostly for improve the skin tone,  any steins caused mostly because of the sun, pigmentation, or just bring back to life any dull skin.

Perfume Review: Neon Rose by Floral Street

IMG-20200508-WA0001

Summer is around the corner and definitely we started to feel those sunny and sometimes quite warm days, so what that basically means? warm skin makes any perfume become far more intense, and yes I have always been a powerful intense fragrance lover, florals and fresh clean scents are not my cup of tea mostly because I don’t tend to suit my personality and  most important they never last on my skin.

Review: Thalgo, Clarifying Water Essence

IMG-20200115-WA0003

Even when essences have been on the market for a while, not many brands produce them, actually they are kind of exclusive to medium to luxury ones and still you would need to know where to find them, but still many people wouldn’t know what they are, how to use it and most important they are not meant to replace any other product.

Perfume: Best in Fragrance 2019

IMG_20200201_170818-2

2019 was a good year for some perfume houses and not so good for many others, I think the list of “Worst in Fragrance 2019” would be much longer because many luxury but mass consumption houses have launched new versions of existing perfumes , the release of new perfumes was very poor and many others only chose to launch flankers without much to say or collectable bottles. In this list you will find the best of both mass consumption and the few of niche houses, all from different brands. Continue reading “Perfume: Best in Fragrance 2019”

Having oily/combination skin is a real issue, when I was a teenager I have suffered from a severe acne and due to the lack of information (or misinformation) I used to have a terrible skincare routine and today I’m paying the consequences of it.
