  1. Money doesn't buy good taste...

    Found this while reading reviews on Luckyscent, cracked me up.

    "...Money doesn't buy good taste and fragrance can't cover up up the stench of snobs."

  2. Pitter Patter...

    Cold rainy weather always make for perfect days to try scents, especially if it's a Sunday morning. Sampled the Van Cleef & Aprels Collection Extraordinaire on my wrist and snuggled back under the covers, bliss.

  3. Warning: Walking Vanilla Tonka Bean Ahead

    I got so excited over my new Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens that I went trigger happy and let it rip with 6 pumps all over. Death by vanilla for all around me today.

  5. [Review] Cumin 31 by Le Labo

    Rose 31 by Le Labo should be renamed 'Cumin 31' from the smell of it. This would seem like a cumin-laced rose when it was first described to me. Presumably naming a fragrance 'Cumin' was hardly sexier than 'Rose'.

    Reviews have summed it as a masculine rose, the flower playing a peek-a-boo throughout the day for me. So do not make the mistake of assuming this is predominantly a rose soliflore as I had from its namesake. I seem to get shades of Diptyque's Tam Dao - ness but incredibly ...
