Truth Or Dare Naked by Madonna.

Truth Or Dare Naked by Madonna.

I love wearing Truth Or Dare Naked by Madonna. I don’t compare it to Truth Or Dare, her first release, so I’m not disappointed in any way. It’s composition is entirely different.

It’s rich in its’ feeling, thick and balmy. It has an ample balsamic presence that borders on sweet, earthy and quite seductive. The benzoin is syrupy but not sticky or resinous. There’s a nuttiness that mixes in against a backdrop of faint woods courtesy of the oud to give Naked a strong spicy Mediterranean feel. Honeysuckle offers a delightful warm, fruity-filled, honey compote in the initial offering that’s wrapped in delightful spices. The oud is balanced with the combination of other notes and is blended well and doesn’t stand out alone.

I’ve worn this floral woody musk mostly in the colder and cooler weather because it is strong and could be rather cloying in the summer heat. Naked lasts for hours for me and I’ve received many compliments while wearing it. This is a rare bottle in my stash of perfumes that is already 1/2 empty because I enjoy wearing it often.

Top Notes: Honeysuckle, Peach Blossom, Neroli.

Middle Notes: Vanilla Orchid, Cacao, Lily-Of-The-Valley.

Base Notes: Texas Cedar, Benzoin, Australian Sandalwood, Agarwood(Oud).

Peace.

Tuvache Jungle Gardenia.

Posted in benzoin, Bitter orange, clary sage, cyclamen, gardenia, heliotrope, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, musk, oakmoss, sandalwood, tarragon, tuberose, Tuvache Jungle Gardenia, violet leaf, ylang-ylang with tags , , , , , , on December 8, 2014 by sorceressofthedark
Tuvache Jungle Gardenia.

Tuvache Jungle Gardenia.

I recently acquired a vintage three-piece set of Jungle Gardenia by Tuvache, which included the cologne, perfumed powder and cologne spray concentrate. The original store sticker on this set, still on, priced it at $16.50, pretty hefty for the time period of this box, circa 1960’s. An inflation calculator puts that price at roughly $123.24 today, so it wasn’t that cheap.

Tuvache began producing Jungle Gardenia in 1932. They were a New York Company that used a french name to compete in the industry with many pre-World War II French fragrances controlling the current perfume industry. If you recognize the name, it’s because Madame Tuvache is a character in Gustave Glabert’s French novel, Madame Bovary.

Those rumored to wear Jungle Gardenia were Hollywood notobles Annette Funicello, Joan Crawford, Natalie Wood, Elizabeth Taylor and Fay Wray who wore it while filming King Kong. Michael Jackson also was a fan of this perfume. Perhaps because of his friendship with Elizabeth Taylor, speculation guesses.

The original Tuvache company was sold in the late 1960’s to Germaine Monteil, then in the 1970’s to Yardley of London, in 1989 to the Jovan division of Coty. A new reformulated scent was created that was not as popular as the original perfume.

Jungle Gardenia begins with gardenia of course, straight up. But, there is a burnt flavoring covering the top for some brief moments, perhaps it’s the clary sage in passing while the tart bitterness of the orange mellows the gardenia.  The tuberose at times is overpowering. It’s strong, thick and pure. It wafts in, around and through the perfume.

Eventually, Jungle Gardenia turned into a spicier sandlewood many, many hours later. Not just a generic sandlewood, mind you, but one that I’ve not encountered in a long, long time. Woods wrapped in types of unique spices and this stage was still just as strong as the others. To me, this seems a cold weather perfume to wear sparingly, but I haven’t tried it in the warmer months. I’d be curious to see how it develops then.

I loved how Jungle Gardenia took me through a Journey of notes and hours of pleasure of a perfume. That’s what it’s all about. Or how perfume used to be developed. And how it used to develop on those that spritzed them on themselves. They could enjoy the fragrance for hours.

This oriental floral perfume is clean, bright and fresh. It’s mature, sultry and strong. It’s a fragrance from the past that’s heady and strong-willed. a perfume to wear in the evening, for a mature personality that knows the old-time perfumes and appreciates them. What a delightful find this perfume has been!

Top Notes: Bitter Orange, Clary Sage, Cyclamen, Heliotrope.

Middle Notes: Gardenia, Tuberose, Tarragon, Ylang-Ylang, Violet Leaf, Jasmine, Lily-Of-The-Valley.

Base Notes: Oakmoss, Benzoin, Sandalwood, Musk.

Peace.

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh. What’s In A Name?

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh.

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh.

No hesitation here, this starts out smelling like a masculine fragrance. Give it to its dry down and you have the yin-yang of the female and male existence of perfumery. Cosmic life explained in a bottle. (How thoughtful of Kate Walsh.) The coming together of two opposites in one bottle that you can now apply onto yourself without the benefit of “him” being there.

Never really needing “him” takes on a whole new meaning. Or, you can think of pining for “him” through the purchase of a perfume that reminds you of “him” but it’s not “his”, its’ “yours”, because it’s marketed for women, it’s just another ad campaign for suckers, rather, I mean consumers.

I get this sad image of lonely people crying, sniffing their generic smelling wrist because it reminds them of “him”. Really?

There’s a world of perfumes out there for you ladies, just for you, designed to make you feel good, designed to work with your body chemistry and evoke positive thoughts. Not evoke images of “Michael, John, Rob, Steven, Kevin, Joe, Josh, Sebastian, Brian, Robert, Pablo…” which are the names emblazoned on the bottle. Of her former boyfriends.

Yes, the concept is amusing. But it falls short of bringing in the sexual aura needed that might have hit this one out of the ballpark. Had it been reminiscent of a vis-à-vis romp with any of the notes in its composition, then the sensuality and rawness would have made Boyfriend complete. Otherwise, it falls flat as simply spraying a small amount of your significant others’ favorite fragrance on to remind you of them. Save your money and do that instead.

The plum seems to be the highlight with a slight musk while the woods surround the entire composition. Florals, none. The myrhh lies low and intermingles with the woods as one would expect with a man’s fragrance. There is a rich deepness bringing to mind vanilla, more like gingerbread that appears for awhile and wraps the fragrance together. Not long-lasting, not short either, just middle of the road. Stays close to the skin. There is a reminiscent feel to Prada Amber.

If you really feel you must wear this, it’s a choice to wear in the evening at home or at leisure while relaxing. Definitely sample before you buy to see how you enjoy a fragrance that starts out with a male top and ends with a female bottom. Oh yeah, wouldn’t that be called submissive? And that’s what buying a bottle called “Boyfriend” reminds me of….but all in all it’s a decent frag that I do like.

Definitely different in today’s world of sweet, fruity compositions. Boyfriend is musky, mature, spicy and seasonless. Not for a LBD, but it does have its sensual overtones.

The starting price is ridiculous that I saw at Sephora. Within a few weeks it went to a fraction of its original cost on the clearance rack, where I snagged a bottle. For the clearance price, it was well worth it. That made me much happier to wear it. I still don’t like the name, but I do like the fume when I’m in the mood for feeling like a lumberjack.

Fragrance Notes: Musk, Amber, Myrhh, Plum, Woodsy Notes, Jasmine, Lily-Of-The-Valley.

Boyfriend, a floral woody musk, is available through the secondary market on auction sites.

There are eight installments for Boyfriend on YouTube. Here is #1. Enjoy.

Peace.

Mariah Carey Dreams…Salty Caramel Bodyspray with Musky Vanilla

Dreams.

Dreams.

So I’m shopping the cosmetics aisle of a drugstore talking to the Beauty Advisor, and she suggests Mariah Carey’s Dreams perfume. The Beauty Advisor goes on enthusiastically telling me how much she adores the fragrance of this perfume and how it makes her feel. Out comes the bottle for a spritz.

What a lovely bottle! I love the curvature, reminding me of perhaps a champagne flute. The topper, typical of Mariah and her fascination with these diurnal insects, is of three translucent butterflies, designed to appear as if they are fluttering about the top of the bottle. The name, Dreams, is embossed in the glass with a miniature butterfly at the base.

The bottle is far more elegant than the juice inside. The bottle is the selling point of Dreams. Other than the butterflies made of plastic, which I understand in today’s marketing, the bottle is quite pretty. The target audience probably couldn’t afford what the company would charge for a  topper made of real glass butterflies that would have taken away the cheesy look. But we’re not talking vintage Lalique here either. What’s inside is no more than common sweet and warm caramel-vanilla body spray. Simply put.

Frankly, it seems more like a body spray than an Eau de Parfum. It’s lasting power is minimal and its projection is no more than a skin scent for me. Nose to the bone on this one and I’ve been wearing it off and on for over a week. This is a light, gentle scent that can be seasonless, depending on the age group wearing it.

Caramel is the star of this fragrance and keeps its place throughout the run of the perfume. The almonds lend a salty flair to the caramel, keeping it less sweet for the first 30 minutes or so until the vanilla kicks in ever so lightly to make Dreams a sweeter experience. A very light, very gentle musk underlies Dreams so innocently you hardly know it’s there. Patchouli is listed also, and if you’re worried about it, don’t be. I couldn’t even smell it. After about an hour, its time to re-spray.

If you put your nose to your skin and inhale deeply, you can experience a definite Werther’s candy shop experience. Maybe Dreams is a good name for this one because its really hard for me to experience this frag during my waking hours.

It’s a safe bet for much younger women and those entering the fragrance world as a gift. It’s just unobtrusive, uncontrary, so subtle and simple. Definitely not a winter frag, a perfume like this would be consumed by the elements. I can see it worn in warmer weather to bring out its simplicity.

Thank goodness it can be found at deep discount outlets for much less than retail prices, since projection and longevity are kept at minimum standards. It’s not a perfume worth paying full price for by any means.

Its only saving grace is the bottle and that’s only if you like butterflies for your collection.

Dreams will make a good spritzer for bed-time use since you won’t be awake long enough to appreciate how little it really lasts on your skin. Spraying it on linens or scarves may make it last longer.

Mariah Carey has collaborated on a total of 14 perfumes, beginning in 2007. They are M for Women, Luscious Pink, M by Mariah Carey Gold Deluxe Edition, Forever, Luscious Pink Deluxe Edition Parfum, M Ultra Pink, Lollipop Bling Honey, Lollipop Bling Mine Again, Lollipop Bling Ribbon, Lollipop Bling That Chick, Lollipop Splash Inseparable, Lollipop Splash Never Forget You, Lollipop Splash Vision Of Love and Dreams.

Imari…A Popular Staple From Avon for 29 Years…Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Posted in aldehydes, amber, bergamot, cedar, floral aldehyde, galbanum, Imari, lily-of-the-valley, musk, orris root, sandalwood, tuberose, vanilla, ylang-ylang with tags , , , , , , , on February 27, 2014 by sorceressofthedark
Imari by Avon.

Imari by Avon.

After a few seconds of the aldehyde blitz, the oriental spices announce themselves. There is a slight resiny bitterness mixed with a hint of bergamot, reminiscent of a cup of China Black tea. Sandalwood and cedar give appreciative woody notes along with musky vanilla in the dry down.
With the vintage, you must wait for Imari to work its magic. After a bit, Imari rewards you with an incense-like aroma that surrounds you. There’s a reason it’s been around for over twenty years. Because Imari delivers a good bang for the buck.
If you can get an older bottle, do so, there is a difference. Regardless, this is a strong, sultry perfume that comes back at you when you least expect it. Imari can be soft when worn at the pulse points. It can be elegant. This is an Avon perfume that has withstood the test of time. It is seductive and more of a night perfume for mature women. Best used in the cooler weather. Lasts a few hours and sillage is good.
Imari is not one to sprayed without thought unless you want your perfume to introduce you. Wear it sparingly for a beautiful effect.
Imari is not a mind-blowing knock your socks off scent by any means. It’s a good scent to wear to the office, around other people in the colder weather, or if you’d like a lighter dose of an incense perfume. But do not overspray. It comes back to haunt you.
Vintage Imari opens with resiny notes that embrace musky tones. Mild woods envelope and bring it together. The beautiful saving grace of Imari happens about four hours later. It gets stronger on your skin and turns into a heavier incense. You’ll be surprised, especially if you spray it on a piece of clothing. In Imari’s case, the beginning is not like the ending at all.
My review is for two vintages, one dated 1992 and the other dated 1995. For a very inexpensive Avon offering that one can purchase for a few bucks, this is a good choice.

Imari was introduced in 1985 and is considered a floral aldehyde. The newer versions are much lighter and have less incense and more of an aldehyde effect. There is a definite difference.

Imari can be purchased from the Avon catalog online, from Avon representatives or through secondary sources such as Ebay.

Top Notes:  Aldehydes, Galbanum, Bergamot.

Middle Notes: Tuberose, Orris Root, Ylang-Ylang, Lily-of-The-Valley.

Base Notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Musk, Vanilla, Cedar.

Nirvana Black and White by Elizabeth and James…Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Posted in Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black, lily-of-the-valley, musk, peony, sandalwood, vanilla, violet with tags , , , , , , , on February 1, 2014 by sorceressofthedark
Elizabeth and James Nirvana.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana. (Photos courtesy of Sephora site.)

I recently tested Nirvana Black and Nirvana White. No, no, not for me. Not either of them. Let me explain.

Nirvana Black comes across as pure pepper. Very strong pepper hit me immediately and stayed throughout the life of this perfume. It never diminished. A wash of sandalwood envelops the peppery sense as if it’s framing it solidly. Here’s the problem. The sandalwood smells synthetic. It’s not woody. It’s not natural. It doesn’t bring any pleasant images.  On top of that, the pepper stings. It bites.

As two lonely prominent notes, they’re headache inducing.  Unfortunately, in Nirvana Black, they were the only two notes that surfaced.

It was suggested to me to at Sephora to layer Nirvana Black and Nirvana White. I did. I tried the suggestion. Now, bear in mind the cost of this suggestion. Even at the cost of the rollerballs which are $22 apiece, that would be layering $44 worth of perfume, just to make Nirvana Black better.

Frankly, it only made it worse. Nirvana Black is far stronger and overpowers Nirvana White, which is an in your face blast of a floral. Peony is the main note and it hits you full frontal in White. As in Black, White has the power to smell synthetic.

So what did Nirvana Black really remind me of? Walking down the laminate plastic aisle at Home Depot. That’s my mental image when I smell my hand, my wrist, and where I sprayed this perfume. These are not people-pleasers. At least not to me.

On the up side, they lasted for five hours, that’s at least the point that I decided to wash them off. So longevity is wonderful. After the initial blast, which is rather strong, they do sit close to the skin. Nirvana Black seems more suitable for shopping in the winter-time in any home-remodeling store and Nirvana White just comes across more as a floral room spray.

Both are listed as unisex fragrances, but they didn’t seem masculine nor feminine to me. Probably because of the more synthetic feel to them, I couldn’t nor I wouldn’t classify them as either type of fragrance.

These two perfumes are encased in a rather chic container, stylish and sleek. Actually visually pleasing and different. It’s the one aspect of the perfume I did like.

Nirvana Black Notes: Violet, Sandalwood, Vanilla.

Nirvana White Notes: Peony, Musk, Lily-Of-The-Valley.

Nirvana White is considered a floral woody musk, while Nirvana Black is considered a woody perfume. The 1.7 oz. Eau de Parfum spray is available for $75.00, the 1 oz. Eau de Parfum spray is $55.00, and the .34 oz. roller ball is $22.00, all available at Sephora.

Unbreakable Love…A Feel-Good Perfume…Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Posted in bergamot, cardamom, cedar, khloe and Lamar Unbreakable Love, lily-of-the-valley, musk, neroli, tonka bean, woody floral with tags , , , , , , , on January 28, 2014 by sorceressofthedark
Unbreakable Love.

Unbreakable Love.

I had sprayed this on from a tester months ago and the scent had haunted me for quite some time. In the meanwhile, I had picked up Unbreakable, one of Khloe and Lamar’s other Unbreakable fragrances, and really enjoyed it. I finally managed to pick up Unbreakable Love. I’m so glad I found it.

This is a scent that gives images of lying in the grass and smelling the new-mown hay, looking up at the blue skies and enjoying the clean, crisp air. There must be a red barn somewhere in the near distance.

Have you ever owned a cedar wood hope chest that you’ve oiled and waxed for years? One that you’ve painstakingly taken care of with love? It’s wood grains show beautifully. When you open it, you inhale the aroma of the woods and it’s intoxicating. Now take that beautiful cedar and mix it with the delightful scent of bergamot and you have Unbreakable Love. It’s simple, but it’s delicious.

There’s a slight musk that winds its way in but it’s very, very soft. Tonka beans add their say as a delightful wrap to this perfume to make it a fresh, clean fragrance that makes it wonderful as a four-season wearable for both men and women and is marketed as a unisex perfume. The cedar is more on the green and sweet side and with the tea influence reminds me somewhat of a lemon meringue pie that is not sweet but tart.

I accidentally sprayed some on my scarf and the scent lingered for over a week. I could smell it whenever I wore the scarf. It was absolutely delicious. This is a long-lasting perfume that radiates well.

Wonderful to wear during the day, on a lazy week-end or to lull yourself to sleep. This is a very comfortable perfume.

The bottle is a pale glass blue that when turned upside down is reminiscent of a goblet. Unbreakable Love is a feel-good perfume. It evokes pleasant images, warm feelings and wonderful moods. That’s what a perfume is all about.

This one, along with Unbreakable, has passed all of my tests. Long-wearing, brings to mind images, radiates well, makes me feel good when I wear it.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Neroli.

Middle Notes: Lily-Of-The-Valley, Tonka Bean, Cardamom.

Base Notes: Cedar, Musk.

This woody floral musk can be purchased in stores, online and at the Khloe/Lamar site here: http://www.khloeandlamarfragrance.com/home.php

Peace.
