Maison Francis Kurkdjian Grand Soir Perfume Review

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Grand Soir is simplistic scent that is best summarized by being a honeyed amber with vanillic sweetness that starts off in the background and gets sweeter and more sugary (bordering on gourmand) as the drydown approaches. Maison Francis Kurkdjian (MFK) describes Grand Soir’s notes without delineating whether they’re top, heart, or base notes, but here they are in the order MFK lists them: tonka bean, which MFK describes as a “gourmand facet ev...

Coloured Raine Floral Cream Blush Review & Swatches

Floral Coloured Raine Floral Cream Blush ($16.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a bright pop of medium pink with subtle warmth and a semi-matte finish. It had an incredibly creamy texture that was thicker, emollient, and felt like it was partially melted at all times, which made it difficult to work with using a fingertip as the pressure was just too much and resulted in product displacement. It was best to use a fluffy, synthetic brush and a very ...

My First Experience with Imaginary Authors

The 2021 vote by Fragrantica readers, despite the ongoing controversies and discussions, was very helpful. It brought well-deserved recognition to some brands; to others it provided guidelines for development in the new 2022 year, and personally, the vote made me take Imaginary Authors samples out of my chest of drawers. The brand won two first places in the Best American Niche Fragrance 2021 n... Read full article: My First Experience with Imaginary Authors from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colog...

Chanel Terre d'Etoiles & Bois de Rose Astral Rouge Allure Velvet La Cometes Reviews & Swatches

Terre d'Etoiles (108) Chanel Terre d’Etoiles (108) Rouge Allure Velvet La Comete ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy brown with subtle warmth and a satin sheen with barely-there gold micro-sparkle strewn throughout. It had rich color coverage paired with a lightweight, lightly velvety texture that glided comfortably across my lips but wasn’t overly slippery. It was forgiving of lip texture, though it could have been more smoo...

I interviewed hundreds of people in search of the perfect routine. I realised there isn’t one

In our pursuit of improvement, we’re often told consistency is key. But obsessing over productivity means ignoring how our days vary – and how we vary within themIn our culture that places productivity on a pedestal, an optimised routine has been sold as the salve to all kinds of dilemmas. Lost your job? Stick to your routine. Experiencing anxiety, depression, or grief? Find a routine. Living through a pandemic? Get a new routine.Sometimes we do need the support of a schedule.

An Argument for Making Exercise (Not Diet) the Foundation of Weight Management

Decades ago, society was more bullish on the importance of exercise in weight management. Just go jogging a few times a week, the thinking went, and you’d shed the pounds — never mind that you ended your run by heading to the bagel shop for a big, well-earned, carb-tastic breakfast. In the last decade, much water has been thrown on the idea of using exercise to manage your weight, and the importance of diet has risen ascendant. Nutritionists and fitness trainers are quick to tell folks that “Yo...

„To-do-Liste erstellt“. Abgehakt! Mein Leben besteht aus einer Menge bunter Listen mit guten Vorsätzen, die ich ausdrucke und in Notizbücher klebe oder nachts um drei Uhr im Schlaf in mein Handy tippe.

Do You Gatekeep Your Favorite Fragrances?

Are you a gatekeeper? Do you gatekeep your favorite fragrance or, gasp, your favorite makeup like concealer, foundation, or even blush?

Winter Jacket Cosiness

A new outfit from Alexandra Fleurisson of Mademoiselle Modeuse, whom we introduced to YLF in February 2020. The cosy black and white aviator jacket with matching booties make this outfit for me. The white shearling lightens up the look and adds fluffy textural interest. Alexandra has tucked a lightweight turtleneck into relaxed straight cropped jeans. This lengthens the leg line from the waist up, while the top’s vertical ribbing creates further vertical integrity. Belting the jeans, and opting...
