Weekly Scent Round-up [April 16-23]

This Chick is Judging You

As I prepare for my Easter taco dinner (with  Peeps for dessert), I leave you with some great reading courtesy of a few fellow bloggers:

EauMG  reviews Aftelier's Rain Bath Oil, and I'm now coveting it to use in an oil burner (no baths are taken here).

Tarleisio at Scent Less Sensibilities espouses the joys of her dearly departed Black Candy, Yohji Homme. I'm on a mission to help her locate a bottle of it if I can.

Birgit over at Olfactoria's Travels conducts an interesting little experiment at home and also reviews Honore des Pres Love, Coco.

At Beauty on the Outside, Dee discusses Hermes Un Jardin Sur le Toit, Jean-Claude Ellena's "electric green" scent with a bit of "oddness". Color me intrigued.

Persolaise reviews L'Artisan's Coeur de Vetiver Sacre, and exchanges a few revealing words with Francis Kurkdjian.

Ines at All I Am- a Redhead gives us her criteria for how she chooses to buy a bottle or decant of a perfume. It's inspired me to want to join in the fun, I may post my own criteria soon!

Right here on eyeliner on a cat, I share my enthusiasm for my new favorite candle brand, Aura Candles. I love it when small businesses really get it right. The love and attention put into these candles make for some memorable scents and a beautiful home environment.

I hope everyone has a great week ahead of them!

  2. Thank you Birgit! The love affair is in full swing. I steal glances at her when I'm not spraying. I feel like the recipient of very, very good fortune. I told JoannElaine that when I got it, I wanted to stick my head out the window and shout "It's a GIRL!" and toss candy cigars down to the waiting masses.
