YSL Manifesto Fragrance Review. And Manifesto Elixir Preview

I was actually very curious about YSL’s Manifesto when it first came out since I really loved the promo photo with Jessica Chastain (I like her  in general and her makeup looked just spot-on), and the perfume itself sounded promising.

Although  the composition is not complicated or unexpected, I still like it.

You can definitely smell fresh bergamot, as an opening note but then it settles down, and it is a soft, sweet warm and sensual vanilla and tonka bean based fragrance.   I could definitely smell lily-of-the-valley and I was correct, as it is listen as one of the notes.

Other than than, I’d say that

Rouge Bunny Rouge Incantation Fragrance

I have shared my opinion about the Rouge Bunny Rouge fragrance collection and I have great news! The brand just added a new  scent to the line – Incantation.

Here is the description:

“This darkly divine fragrant enchantress strikes a soothing yet arresting beat on the skin. In synchronised elation hurtle trailing vines of blackcurrant, mint and spices instantly inveigle. Voluminous and bitter-green fig-leaf-fans ignite the air with scented swathes of rich black fruits. While the silk and sylvan aroma of otherworldly rose in

Did you know that I post a lot of extra things over at Makeup4all Facebook page, as I don’t like things to get too overwhelming here? But I think that M. Micallef Le Parfum Couture deserves a post of its own.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Fragrance Collection Review

As you may know, Rouge Bunny Rouge recently launched their first fragrance collection which includes three eau de parfums.

I am lucky to have samples of all three and I like that you get generous 2.5 ml which is enough to decide whether or not you like the scent.

So here is my impression about them and please keep in mind that I am not a perfume expert, by any means.

I was originally drawn to  Chatoyant (Top: Bergamot, Lemon,  Heart: Orchid, Jasmine, Rose, Lily of the Valley, Base: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Musk, Vanilla).

I think that it’s the combination of flowers and citrus notes that I like so much. I can definitely pick  lily of the valley and rose notes, but at the same time, I can definitely smell lemon and bergamot, it is perfectly balanced.  It smells even better when it dries down, vanilla, which is not overpowering in this case, sandalwood and musk make it even I can definitely see myself wearing this fragrance a  lot.

At first I did not like this one that much but now I love it!  It opens with fresh, dry and green fig notes.  After a while I can definitely smell peach mixed with vetiver. I was
