La Vague. The Wave. A painting by Georges Clairin that inspired Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab when creating a scent of the Salon: Traveling Exhibit collection, exclusive to Pretty Indulgent.
This August has been the hottest month of 2017 and it made me steer towards lighter, fresher scents. La Vague is on the fruity side of the fresh category, something that promises an elegant floral sweetness and gives you a lively kick out of an otherwise dull, extremely hot afternoon.
White peach, lily of the valley, jasmine, rose, iris, osmanthus, tangerine, white wine grape, and cream accord.
Find La Vague on Pretty Indulgent; $30 CAD.
Does it remind me of a wave? Grab a cup of fruity iced tea and read on.

Films and paintings.
This post’s focus will be on their Yule 2016 collection that went live on 5 December 2016 and is available until 13 February 2017. This limited edition offers a wide variety of typical Christmassy scents, as well as strange aromas you’ve never dreamt about, at least not in perfume form. Don’t hesitate to check out the shop and pick your new favourite scents!

December and January have taken its leave already, and I have had plenty of time to test the remaining perfume oil samples that I received in my not-so-recent destash haul. In the meantime I’ve also received some other perfume samples but I thought I’d better check this lot off the to-do list first before moving on to newer beauties.
