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.

Review: Bioderma, Photoderm MAX Aquafluide SPF 50+

Sometimes finding a good SPF for a combination/Oily skin could be tricky, most of them would be too greasy, the would start to melt once you go underneath the sun, if it’s dry touch then the finish is too matte and non natural at all, so today I want to share one that I have been using and already finish: Photoderm MAX Aquafluide SPF 50+ by Bioderma.

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.

Review: Kiehl’s, Daily Refining Milk-Peel Toner

IMG-20200728-WA0010

I love when new type of products show up in the market with new formulas, textures… specially if we are talking about toners, some people consider them unnecessary mostly because they have an inaccurate concept about what a toner does or they tend to think about the first ones in the market that were pure alcohol with fragrance, I remember them when I was a teenager with oily skin and acne and how much damage they caused.

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”

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 Review: La Route d’Emeraude by Isabey

InstaSave-2

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.

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”
