Fascinator by Hové Parfumeur of New Orleans, Louisiana (Hové Parfumeur) is a largely green, strong, oak moss fragrance but I would guess there’s some jasmine and ylang-ylang, bergamot and lemon as well. It’s a bit indolic, earthy and a little sweet with what I believe to be orange blossom and what is certainly musk. In the drydown it’s still a sharp, slightly bitter scent but there’s a hint of warmth and gentleness to balance the feisty notes. Perhaps those are notes of sandalwood and patchouli.
Fascinator is a part of Hové’s luxury line of women’s fragrances. It has excellent longevity and discreet but noticeable sillage.
Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation is easily one of the best foundations I’ve ever tried. I wasn’t expecting to like it since I’m not a big fan of the Touche Eclat, but, Fusion Ink Foundation is lovely. It sits on the skin but not in a bad way… It’s more like a soft veil that covers the skin ever so gently with a dewy, natural quality. It doesn’t seem to irritate the skin or accentuate fine lines either. When I’m in the market for a new foundation this may well be what I pick…
And there. I did it. I finally posted a Monday post… It’s been weeks since I’ve done any product reviews. I know this week I only reviewed one product, but I’ll get back into the swing of things…
How was your weekend?
