Celebrate / Snowshowers by Lush

Celebrate / Snowshowers„a disgusting five minutes”
When I first put this on, it was very weak. I had to put on a lot just to smell it. That gave me a hint of citrus and a lot of something metallic. It dried down to fake orange flavoring with a hint of sweaty feet. A couple of minutes later, it was painfully...

Clémentine California by Atelier Cologne

Clémentine California„Atelier goes to the dark side! :(”
I bought a mini of Clementine California, rather than waiting to go to Sephora to try it first, because I've liked everything I've tried of this brand. Likewise, when I put it on for the first time, I splashed on quite a bit, as I've done with other...

EXOTIC essence? Nah, there are dozens of peachy fruitchoulis out there. Pleasant enough, but could not be less exotic, actually.+4

Couldn't fully review. Such a strong acetone-y tuberose blast at the start that I had to scrub. Tuberose = my kryptonite. Be warned!+1

Smells just like La Vie est Belle's sickeningly sweet candy. If you like LVeB, you might want this instead for the gorgeous bottle.+2

Why is this supposed to be feminine? It's a simple cooling cologne, entirely unisex. Nothing unique about it. Good for summer office wear.+3

Vanilla, powdery patchouli, and "red hot" candies. Cheap for perfume; expensive for an essential oil blend, which is what it seems to be.+3

Used to love this green tea w/ cheerful red currant. Unfortunately, the musk note has become prominent to me, giving me a headache.+3

Base resembles Belle d'Opium, which is a nicer "synthetic." Combines all of the most piercing weapon-type synthetic notes available. Ouch.+2

Gentle calm peach-cardamom-vanilla. Surprisingly unsweet. Warm & cuddly. Not what you'd expect from the girly bottle.+2

Clean laundry, fresh air, and pine trees. Summer camp in upstate New York. Helps me smile and relax, especially when it's hot out.+3

Since the rest of the Greek text reads "She's hiding her ears under her hood, for she doesn't want anyone to know that her parents were the first rebels. But deep inside she's proud of herself.", I guess that the part of the story we were never told was probably this one.

Tentations is actually more like eating a juicy pepper-sprinkled peach (enter eccentricity), as a snack accompanying a vodka-quaffing spree, in the middle of a garden laden with intoxicating carnation bushes. And speaking of kitsch, I think that its bottle is the exact opposite, since it would be the perfect movie prop container for holding a potion hanging from an oriental princess' belt.

It depends...Literally speaking, it should be one of these.
But since kitsch and I had always a somewhat hostile stance to each other everytime we met, I think I'll go with this.
And yes I know that one man's aesthetic dream is another man's aesthetic nightmare. Lots of thanks!

In my book, Anaïs Anaïs belongs to a limited genre of fragrances which I call "perf(um)idious" (although the Greek word I use cannot be translated accurately), and which pack a good deal of potential debauchery and oppressed desires beneath their beguilingly innocent looks. The strange thing is that while I love them, they also scare the hell out of me, as I find their mesmerising effect nearly impossible to resist. They mean "business" in a covert and embarassing way, which usually catches me off guard. And speaking of business, since images are the main way in which fragrances speak to me, I'd surely dig this kind of innovation. It would be like a book where you can smell the words and behold the plot. Thanks a lot for dropping by!
