Ego Facto Perfumes- An Overview

Ego Facto is a perfume brand that was launched in 2009 but hasn't caught much traction in the US, mostly because unlike in its native France where it's sold at the ubiquitous Marionnaud chain (basically on every street corner in Paris), here it's only available at Luckyscent. Show More Summary

Bobbi Brown Scarlet Lip Gloss (Scotch On The Rocks Collection)

Guerlain KissKiss Holiday Look Trio

Guerlain KissKiss Holiday Look Trio was the only set I bought out of the many options launched by just about every major brand. It was the red that captured my heart completely (and I was on the market for a classic red nail polish), and made me break my vow not to add another red lipstick to my collection. Show More Summary

Serge Lutens- L'Orpheline

In order to even start wrapping my head around L'Orpheline I had to completely ignore two things: my expectation from a Serge Lutens perfume, and the story/marketing materials provided by the company. I usually do the latter anyway, but here it was especially important. Show More Summary

The Problem With Blogging- 2014 Edition

Lindsay Lohan & Charlotte Tilbury

Tom Ford- Velvet Orchid

Cocktail Shoes by Mary L. Parkes Eight years later, I'm still a fan of Tom Ford's first perfume, Black Orchid. It's a big-boned floriental-gourmand with more complexity than most modern designer perfumes put together. I also liked its...Show More Summary

Vintage Hats- Part 1

The Fountain Spa New Jersey

Like good Thai food and antique stores, I've discovered that some of the best things can be found incredibly close to home. Case in point: a luxurious spa.

Want Need: The Beta Version Vilma Wallet

My beloved red wallet is showing its age (older than this blog), and not in a particular good way, despite my loving care. I've been carrying red wallets for most of my life, so I have every intention to keep doing that (I also drive red cars exclusively. Show More Summary

Aftelier Organic Honeysuckle Face Elixir

Face products and aromatherapy are not an obvious pairing. Normally I'm in agreement with Paula Begoun's approach that perfume is not skincare. After all, many classic perfume ingredients (natural as well as synthetic) can be serious irritants and even damage the skin. Show More Summary
