Say hello to the new member of the Kayali family, the perfume brand from Huda Beauty. Deja Vu White Flower 57, each fragrance from the brand has a number with the name and is basically amount of modifications it has till the final result, so in this case 57 and it makes sense as Mona Kattan commented about this scent taking two and half years to develop.

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”
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.

Depending of your personality, your mood, the weather, the event…perfumes play a good part of raising your vibration, your confidence, your sense of sensuality… Everytime I feel down like the is no much reasons to feel positive I tend to spray some sort of fresh, energetic perfume on me and light an scented candle to remember that there is much out there to be grateful and glad for.

“In 1924, the first edition of Lys Noir was presented in a magnificent bottle and coffret conceived by the renowned designer, Julien Viard and the famous Sorys House.
Lys Noir is one of the first of Isabey’s fragrances such as Gardenia, La Route d’Emeraude, Le Mimosa… creating the prestige of the brand. Lys Noir has been redesigned first in 2014 and now in 2017 while keeping the emblematic art-deco codes of the brand.” Continue reading “Perfume Review: Lys Noir by Isabey”
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. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Neon Rose by Floral Street”
Sometimes when you are far away from someone or feel melancholic, a fragrance could bring all the memories or that person back, this little meeting experience was what I got as soon my nose felt Wild Vanilla Orchid by Floral Street.

When we talk about about Trish McEvoy we normally think about makeup but not so much about the lovely perfume collection, except if we visit department stores and we can see them displayed and ready to try out.
Time ago I was lucky enough to try out Precious Pink Jasmine and really loved it so this time I went for a Floral Oriental option, the notes really called my attention so I’m really excited to share this Eau de Parfum called 100. Continue reading “Perfume Review: 100 by Trish McEvoy”
First launch in 1924, “La Route d’Emeraude” The road to the Emerald Triangle from Isabey was designed by Julien Viard, in a faceted bottle and a jewel-like case, reminiscent of the splendor of the Far East. This perfume is inspired, with a touch of nostalgia, by the journey leading to the “Emerald Triangle” (Thailand, Laos and Cambodia), filled with the scents of Jasmine Sambac and blooming flowers. Many Orient lovers took the path to these faraway lands and experienced sensations that are recaptured in this re-edition of the mythical perfume. Gold leather (cordovan) effect, distinctive of La Route d’Emeraude previous designs, has been preserved. The fragrance has been slightly changed. Continue reading “Perfume Review: La Route d’Emeraude by Isabey”
Launched in 1926, Le Gardénia is considered as one of the most prestigious of its kind in the world. Among the rarest sixty fragrances in the book “Scentfully Precious” of J-M Martin-Hattemberg, Le Gardénia is known for its distinguished match of bottle drawn by Julien Viard and jewel case-like box elaborated by Sorys. Isabey Gardenia is the ultimate, splurge-worthy, Rembrandt of Gardenia Scents. Luminous and sensual, this captures the true essence of this bewitching bloom. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Gardénia by Isabey”
Almost finishing another year and I will have to do my list of best and worst in fragrance of 2019, and today I want to share my experience with one fragrance that actually was released during the summer time but due to work and being traveling around I haven’t had the time and chance to test it out, Aura Eau de Parfum Sensuelle by Mugler, yes another flanker of Aura, and I said a millon times I’m not a fan of flankers but this house at least puts some effort and releases good ones or at least they smell different and not all the same. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Aura Eau De Parfum Sensuelle by Mugler”
In the last years we have seen the massive production perfume brands releasing flankers after flankers, new versions of what it used to be good perfumes and very few new in fragrances have absolutely nothing new to surprise the demanding and every day more exigent customers, so the niche perfumery became more and more attractive to people looking for something different and here is one of those wonderful niche perfume houses: Floral Street Continue reading “Perfume Review: Wonderland Peony by Floral Street”
If we look at the last trends in perfumery we can notice a good on the packaging and format of the fragrances, like roll on minis, pencils, oils, actually last year Mugler released perfume pencils of Aura, Angel and Alien the 3 iconic fragrances of the brand and these year their released perfuming brushes. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Mugler Perfuming Brushes”
Many times I have mentioned that I’m not a fan of flankers and new version of well established fragrances, I mean to make a new version of a well popular perfume it could be tricky and most of the time it goes wrong, not only my perception but also what I heard every time I mingle with the customers, so when Mugler came with this new guy I was a bit scared of what I would find, but even when I liked the previous version and the design of the bottle was stunning, this one managed to become a great option. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Angel EDT (2019) by Mugler”
This year Rochas decided (perfume wise) to get a stronger presence in the UK, that would include a closer relationship with the influencers and perfume reviewers, so that’s how a lovely bottle of the latest release landed in my hands it was Mademoiselle Rochas Couture. It has been a very long time since the last time I tested a Rochas fragrance and I was really excited when I got it because as we talked many times in this blog and social media, I’m a bit fed up of the over abuse of flankers and the re inventions who end up killing classics of the perfumerie history, and this is something why I love Rochas if they do a flanker it’s only one or two (except the Eau Rochas which are very different between each other) Continue reading “Perfume Review: Mademoiselle Rochas Couture by Rochas”
As I have shared here, I consider myself an extremely olfactory person, I associate immense perfumes with people, moments or memories in a snap of my fingers. I also believe it to be one of my sharpest senses. Having said that, it is extremely important for me to use a memorable fragrance. Normally, I always opt for very hot fragranes; in my opinion, very seductive and feminine. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Wanted Girl by Azzaro”
Today I wanted to bring some affordable perfume ideas that work as good (or better) as many luxury brands and these are Babe Power and Boss Babe by Missguided, I have to be honest and say that I have never shopped anything from there, but their fragrane range called my attention. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Babe Power & Boss Babe by Missguided”

A new gender-inclusive Fragrance line that weaves a narrative from mislaid memories, childhood dreams and long-forgotten hope; STORIES by Eliza Grace is a journey for the senses.

On my way to make a list of best spring/summer fragrances options I managed to test Precious Pink Jasmine by Trish McEvoy, I have had few make up items from the brand in the past but never tried any of the perfume range and I was looking for floral options for those who are not fan of “Too floral” perfumes, I was looking for something more delicate, unique in terms of notes and the right balance between floral and sweet, suddendly I remembered this fragrance so I decided to test it and it was a very nice surprise. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Precious Pink Jasmine by Trish McEvoy”
After releasing few collectables Mugler started the year with a new member of the Alien family, I’m talking about Alien Fusion, a floral-sweet Eau de Parfum which seems to be an Alien spring/summer option with that hint of fresh ginger for other it would be suitable for colder months, everything comes to personal taste and skin type, if your is quite tricky with perfumes performance and longevity then this one would suit you perfectly. A new addiction for the Alien lovers and a good chance to make it up for the ones who are not fans of it. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Alien Fusion by Mugler”

Continue reading “Carolina Herrera, Good Girl”
A fragrance that probably became one of my all time favourites is Rêve d’Infini from Lalique, I’m a total fan of their art pieces but for some reason never really paid attention to the perfume collection. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Rêve d’Infini by Lalique”

If we talk about someone who always makes a revolution on the fragrance world most perfumers would say “Mugler” specially when the brand creates a new family is like something that we have never smell before, that was the case of “Angel” when it was released for a very first time. The original Aura was released last year, but I haven’t tried it yet and even when I know the notes as a reviewer nose I only talk about what I have tested because as you might know, perfumes are tricky. Continue reading “Mugler: Aura, Eau de Toilette”
I have to admit that I have never been a big fan of Kenzo fragrances, specially from the iconic Flower By Kenzo which I have to say is very unique and has an own identity that’s the reason why the years pass but it never goes out of fashion. I know many people that love flower by Kenzo and others don’t as I belong to that group I was a bit scared or reviewing this product even when I always try to be the most neutral perfumist when it comes to review a fragrance. Continue reading “Flower By Kenzo Red Edition”
