The Sexiest Scent on the Planet. Ever. (IMHO). by 4160 Tuesdays

The Sexiest ScentSexy milkybar.

No, I’m not stating my opinion, this perfume really is called The Sexiest Scent on the Planet. Ever. (IMHO). The name comes from a journalist who declared 4160 Tuesdays’ creation ‘the sexiest scent ever’ when they smelled it. I may not share the exact sentiment, but there’s certainly something sensual and inviting about this fragrance. Continue reading


Jardin Mystique by Friedemodin

Jardin Mystique

Blooms of warmth nestled amongst enchanting greenery.

One of four perfumes from Friedemodin’s debut Jardin Mystique collection, Jardin Mystique is a green floral fragrance that aims to conjure up the sensory experience of a wild enchanted garden.

Ricci Ricci by Nina Ricci

Ricci Ricci

Unlike Nina L’Elixir, another Nina Ricci favourite of mine, Ricci Ricci is a far more sensual fragrance compared to its lighter cousin. Slightly less girly, but still undeniably feminine, Ricci Ricci combines rich fruit with oriental flowers and delightful woods, and is undoubtedly one of my favourite fragrances. Continue reading
