Recently, I wrote about how I was getting back into the world of designer fragrances after a long hiatus in which I only wore more niche perfumes such as those from Byredo, Diptyque, and Le Labo. While it’s true that these perfumes still make up the foundation of my fragrance wardrobe, and you’d have to pry them out of my cold, dead hands if you wanted me to get rid of them, I’ve since opened myself back up to other offerings. And by other offerings, I mean the shiny glass bottles of various sizes, shapes, and colors that adorn the aisles of the department store. That’s right—I’m heading back to the designer-clad perfume counter of yesteryear.
This time, I’m diving into a brand that I used to know and love but have since strayed from. I didn’t stray for any particular reason other than that, as a beauty editor, I have a lot of fragrances to test, so it’s been a minute since I’ve been back to it. Well, as the saying goes, there’s no time like the present, so let’s get into it.
