Sniffing Adventures (August 2014)

     During the month I come across so many products that it’s hard to remember which ones I like, and why I do. So, this is my way to track my thoughts – straight from my Notes app to the blog. Most of the pictures were snapped with my iPhone 3GS – that’s a 3MP camera, in case you’re wondering – so please forgive the quality. Make sure to let me know what you think, and as always, thanks for reading 🙂


August 2014 Sniffing Adventures


31/7/14 (technically not August, but after July’s post was written)

Shoppers Drug Mart

– Diesel Fuel for Life Homme: At first I thought this was an incredibly foul smelling men’s scent, but about an hour into it I find it tolerable. Obsessively woodsy, this is practically a sawmill. Not something I would wear myself.

Monarch Quince Jardins du Seda France Boxed Candle

– Monarch Quince Jardins du Seda France Boxed Candle: My friend Stacey showed this to me, and I fell in love with the scent. It’s impossible to describe, just know that it’s incredibly comforting. We lit it, and the throw was pretty nonexistent.




– Gotta love American Walmart; it’s got so much more wax selection than the Canadian one. I tried ScentSationals Illusion Fragrance Cubes because the packaging seemed interesting, sort of like the 5 Gum commercials (“everyone experiences it differently”), but it was disappointingly generic cologne smelling.

Katy Perry Royal Revolution

– Katy Perry Royal Revolution: I was excited to try this new flanker because I had really enjoyed the original Killer Queen. The bottle is gorgeous, but the scent inside.. well, not so much. It’s got a citrus gourmand opening, which gives the impression of something that tried but failed. Reminds me of a sinking boat.
