September Stinks – Indie perfume review of Lou Lous Soaps Scrubs and Scents

Lou Lou’s Soaps Scrubs and Scents is a place I’ve shopped with on a recommendation from Evonne (of Darling Clandestine notoriety), and I have always kept meaning to chat about Lou Lou’s more often on this blog, but I always keep losing my dram vials I am a beacon of organisation and tidiness! Well no...
September Stinks - 30 Days of indie perfume discussion

September Stinks – 30 Days of indie perfume discussion

With so many indie perfumes laying around, I’ve decided to actually try and finally get some reviews of my perfumes out of the way for this month. Last month was a terribly inactive month on my blog (getting used to the back to uni routine coupled with a bunch of assignments thrown at me all...
SOTD #4 Carny Wedding by Darling Clandestine

SOTD #4 Carny Wedding by Darling Clandestine

Carefully blended and infused by me in small batches in vintage glass wine bottles, this fragrance begins butter candy sweet and mellows on the skin to resiny wood and honeyed nectar. A multitude of different scent elements and weeks of methodical alchemy make Carny Wedding no ordinary scented oil mix-it’s a truly inimitable fragrance. Carny...

I’m never really too fussed with anything Valentines themed. It rarely ever appeals to me. However, Haus of Gloi put forward a collection which caught my eye with a few of their scents. Many of which are pretty neutral of the Valentine theme – bonus I had a sample of Odette from last year, so...
SOTD #3 Oceanside - One Hand Washes The Other

SOTD #3 Oceanside – One Hand Washes The Other

It’s been ridiculously humid and hot over the past few days. What do I expect, it is summer, and I do live in Australia. Humid summers get me every time. I’m not  beach wandering folk so I prefer to stay indoors with a fan/air con on. The smell of the ocean and the idea of...

Time to revive this! Scent Of The Day (SOTD) was Rivet from Darling Clandestine. Description from Darling Clandestine Leather and raw beeswax with an ethereal floral note that suggests a bit of honey and clover still in the comb. It’s an intense leather scent that’s very, very wearable by ladies and gents. Evonne threw this...

Another Halloween perfume review that is very late, I’m sorry guys I really do lose track of time, then I start thinking that maybe I’ve already posted something, but of course I haven’t >.< Well here it is now, maybe they might be floating in the shop for a little while after halloween *fingers crossed*...

I never said I was good with timing with my blog, but better late then never I have another Halloween perfume collection to post later on D: Months back I ordered my Halloween goodies from OHWTO in a frenzy. This also marks a year shopping with OHWTO! I was a huge fan of the 2011...
Haus Of Gloi Halloween/Autumn Pefume Review

Haus Of Gloi Halloween/Autumn Pefume Review

A few months ago in the perfume decant circle I am in, we placed a group order for Haus Of Gloi’s halloween/autumn collection, so I nabbed some samples and ordered myself some full sizes as well. Haus Of Gloi is an interesting perfumery for me. They tend to make a lot of ‘foodie’ and...

Darling Clandestine is one of my very favourite perfumeries, and it’s no secret that I adore Evonne and her creations. To date there is only 1 of her perfumes that I am not fond of (and they may be subject to change, as I am seeing how I go again after it ages a little)...
