EauMG’s 2016 List: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Perfumes

What a year, what a year! 2016 was a crazy one. It was one filled with great ups and downs. 2016 started with unexpected illness which led me to care for my mother. Then I dealt with illness of my own. Everyone we knew was dealing with some sort of health scare. It was one of those years. On top of this, it was difficult to not think the world was imploding around you. Anyway, everything seems really chill right now and I won’t take that for granted.

Despite the downs, there were some ups. I drank champagne in a hot tub… Continue reading | 19 Comments

Oils of Heaven Ooh! Cacay Anti-Aging Face Oil Review

Ooh Cacay Oil

When Oils of Heaven (Ooh!) reached out to me asking if I wanted to try a natural oil that I’ve never heard of, I was like “Heck, yes! Give me the oil that I’ve just now heard about but must have in my life ASAP”!

MariaLux Mogadess EDP Perfume Review

MariaLux Mogadess

Last week, I reviewed Caron Nuit de Noel, a classic perfume that’s very Caron-y but not really Christmas-y (or at least it doesn’t remind me of Christmas). This had me thinking, which perfumes smell like Christmas? I’ve always thought Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguelles, a perfume that reminds me of spicy evergreens and apple cider, is holiday-ish.

Caron Nuit de Noel EDT Perfume Review

Caron Nuit de Noel

Years ago, I was a Caron person. Caron was my perfume house. Then something happened and honestly, I haven’t been in a strong enough mental state to even process it. But, Caron the house, started to crumble. They reformulated everything. They started to launch uninspired new launches. In a competitive market, the house seemed to take some bad advice to heart.
