New hair! Short bob with fringe

January 31, 2018

I’ve been craving a haircut badly, for the past few month or so. To try something new, I grabbed my scissors a night in December and gave myself a fringe. That held me off for a while. But inevitably I needed something more drastic. After a few scrolls on Pinterest, I found something. I was wondering if an Amélie haircut would suit me, and decided that even if it didn’t, it’s wasn’t the end of the f***ing world (have you seen that show?? It’s awesome).
As I looked at myself in the mirror after that good chunk of hair came of, I saw a closer resemblance to Lemon Cat than Audrey Tautou. But as always, a sleep and wash works wonders. And I do quite like it. Not to mention how amazing it feels to get that hair of my neck and back. Feels fresh.

5 Favourite Unisex Frangrances

November 1, 2017

Favourite unisex fragrances

I don’t talk much about fragrances and it’s not something I find very *important* to a happy life. I often forget to apply it and get tired of the same flowery/fruity scents out there. If you’ve been here a while, you might recall my perfume collection video from 2015. A lot has changed!
On a spring day a few years ago, I was introduced to something completely forreign to me. Unisex fragrances! Well, that was years ago, and since then I’ve found my 5 favourite unisex frangrances. Here they are.

Laboratory Perfumes Samphire

My first unisex fragrance! Before getting my hands on this, my favourite fragrances were flowery or fruity, very feminine scents like Marc Jacobs Daisy* and Burberry Body.
Then I found this in a goody bag from a PR agency and tried it out. I was stunned! I had never smelled anything like it. It instantly put images into my mind of a beautiful curly haired man with hazel eyes. (Imagine Finn Wolfhard as an adult.) And I was so intrigued by it. I got and still do – at lot of compliments on it.

Frangrance notes

  • Juniper berries
  • Citrus
  • Vetiver
  • Lavender
  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Oak moss
  • White amber

Goetze Gegenwart Verdúu

This is a newer addition to my perfume collection, but is without a doubt my current favourite! It’s almost a shame that this particullar scent only comes in a rather tiny 15 ml bottle. The brand Verdúu makes these fragrance collaboration with up-and-coming fashion designers, and the idea is that you match your perfume with your outfit. Therefore the small bottle.

Frangrance notes

  • Bergamot
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom
  • Tea Note
  • Coriander
  • Violet
  • Nutmeg
  • Musk
  • & a few more…

Escentric Molecule 01

This might be one of the most hyped unisex fragrances. A few years ago, this brand made quite a stir in the beauty community, because of their niche molecular fragrances. The only scent note in 01 is the aroma-molecule Iso E Super. It’s smells different on everyone, so there’s really no saying what it’ll smell like on you, if you haven’t tried it. On me, it’s a mysterious musky that I can hardly smell myself, but others can.

Nasengold #s

Another new-ish fragrance to me. I gotta be honest, I might have picked this one up mainly because of the name #S. I like to think it’s a scent especially made for me, haha. Some intereseting notes in this is red wine and leather. Two very intriguing notes, that I really like about this fragrance.

Calvin Klein CK One

Maybe one of the most popular unisex fragrances out there. To me this is kind of a classic. If I’m unsure what fragrance I feel like wearing 9 out of 10 times I pick this. It’s just a good stable. However, if I just looked at the notes in this, I wouldn’t think I’d love it. There’s quite a bit of fruit and flower notes, but along with the bergamot and musk, it just works!

Frangrance notes

  • Bergamot

  • Jasmine
  • Violet
  • Rose
  • Nutmeg
