We'll admit it: we're suckers for good packaging. These Roots Rose Radish Solid Perfumes ($45 - $65) could actually smell like radishes, and we'd still love them just for being contained in stunning cases made from genuine seashells. Luckily for us, there are no dubious... [More]

We expected Mermaid Perfume ($50) would smell a bit like a blend of seaweed and walrus. Imagine our delight when we discovered this luscious orange blossom fragrance instead. Is it realistic? Do oranges grow under water? Probably not, but who cares about realism when we're... [More]

We don't typically go for celebrity fragrances, but this was one of those cases where a saleslady thrust a white paper tester under our noses without telling us what it was and we went, "OOOH! Me likey! Me buy now!" Yes, we purchased Taylor by... [More]

Ever wonder what ether smells like? If you found out, you'd probably forget. We recommend you settle instead for this fragrant approximation. This Ether Essential Oil Blend ($42) melds lavender, bitter orange, ylang ylang, and amber for an impact that is intoxicating but happily not... [More]

We don't usually highlight men's cologne on Outblush, but we recently took a whiff of Cologne Absolute ($185) by Tom Daxon and thought it was too scrumptious to keep to ourselves. It's a sexy, man's man scent; think Don Draper. It opens with citrus and... [More]

The name of Anna Sui's newest fragrance, La Vie De Bohème ($65), has a tendency to get songs from Rent stuck in our heads. This scent is so good, though, that we're willing to overlook the earworm flashback. Notes of berries, peony, musk, sandalwood, and... [More]

Sometimes complex scents are, well, too complex. They're packed with so many different notes that you never know what's going to end up sticking around on your skin. Tone it down a little with a straight floral perfume, like Eau Rose ($98) from Diptyque's Les... [More]

Feeling gloomy? Improve your mood with a dash of Dark Wave from OLO ($45). This woodsy, spicy scent was created by self-taught perfumer Heather Sielaff to help beat Portland's utterly depressing (and really, really long) rainy season. We figure that means that its blend of... [More]

Pamela Anderson is synonymous with the beach and the beach is synonymous with summer, which is exactly why we were stoked to try out Malibu Night ($30). It's a sexy and surprising tasteful scent: sweet orchid and chocolate, sharp pomegranate and green notes, and earthy... [More]

The typical gardenia perfume experience: sort of the olfactory equivalent of walking face-first into a mattress in August. Somewhere humid. The revelatory gardenia perfume experience: My Life by Mary J. Blige ($22)... [More]

Take the guesswork out of finding a seasonally appropriate scent. Rich Hippie has created Spring ($48), ideal for spritzing on in, well, springtime. It's light and floral with notes of jasmine and honey. The perfume will wear well into the summer, too, but if you're... [More]

While you could just rub a buncha suntan lotion on yourself to get that fresh-from-the-beach scent, investing in a bottle of Love Coco ($98) from the New York Collection may be the better choice. The coconut and vanilla notes are much more nuanced, and the... [More]

At first we couldn't decide if the packaging for Billet Doux ($65) was stuffy or charming. We decided to make peace with the dated look because, after all, the scent is a recreation of a old French classic. Crafted to be light and feminine, Billet... [More]

We've discovered our new favorite scent just in time for summer! Ineke's Balmy Days & Sundays ($95) is an amalgamation of sunny warmth and lazy afternoons. A light musky note is complimented by the breezy scent of summer flowers, like honeysuckle and rose, and leafy... [More]

We all know someone who could use a little more chilling and a little less neurosis. Suggesting therapy or meditation can easily set them off on a tirade you'd rather not listen to. Instead, make them a gift of Intelligent Nutrients Innercalm ($68). Its combination... [More]

If your mouth isn't watering yet - what's wrong with you? But we're here to offer some relief; Viveltre is offering 3 dozen marshmallows in flavors of your choice to one lucky Outblush reader! See the giveaway form below to enter, and good luck!
