Diptyque Eau de Sens

To say I’m a bit obsessed with orange blossom at the moment would be a mild understatement, so you might want to bear that in mind as you read this – basically, if it promises to smell of orange blossom, I’m bound to at least like it a lot.  And if it delivers, as Diptyque’s Eau de Sens does (in spades), then it’s a full-blown […]

Finishing Touches: #LipsNspritz of the Week, June 12 2016

Summer’s coming!  Summer’s coming!  Well, hopefully it is, anyway!  My tastes have certainly turned to the more summery this week, anyway.  I started with Caron’s My Lang (which gave me and my husband a Woody Guthrie ear worm for several days), which is a sophisticated and creamy sun-lotion kind of a scent, which I really liked from first sniff. More about this soon.  I’m also […]

Diptyque Rosaviola Candle and Solid Fragrance

Good grief I fell hard for Rosaviola!  I didn’t intend to, it’s pink, it’s girly, and it’s very, very, very sweet.  But I have, and what’s done is done.  I went to the Diptyque store in St Germain (I think I may have mentioned that I’ve been in Paris recently?) fully intending to buy something super-exclusive and incredibly French (not to mention achingly chic), and […]

Paris Haul …

Yeah, I don’t normally do haul posts, but I did JUST go to Paris this weekend for an event at the Guerlain flagship store on the Champs Elysees with the Perfume Society. Whilst I was there, I picked up a few bits and pieces and I thought I’d show you.  I’ll write about a few of these in more detail (including writing about my time […]

LipsNspritz of the Week 31 January 2016

 So, I take all my LipsNspritz pictures in one batch on a Saturday afternoon, then wear them throughout the week, taking different pictures of stuff on a daily basis is far too much like hard work for me!  I assure you I do wear them though.  LipsNspritz is my attempt both to wear my entire perfume and lipstick collection, and to help my nose “relearn” […]

LipsNspritz 24 January 2016: The Lavender List

Lots of people don’t like lavender, and I have no real idea why. Its distinctive scent is unusual in having both floral and herbal facets to the scent, and the smell can range from menthol, to balsam, or (just a little, if you get a screechy batch) like cat pee.  But a good lavender fragrance is a thing of beauty, and this week, I thought […]

Spring Fragrances with Elie Saab, Diptyque and DKNY

If you’ve been following my travails over on The Parosmia Diaries, then you’ll know this post is a bit of a breakthrough – perfume reviews have necessarily been thin on the ground for Get Lippie over the last twelve months, but I think I have finally recovered enough of my sense of smell to offer at least a brief overview of some lovely fragrances that […]

My Pick of the Christmas Candles

I love candles, it’s no surprise to anyone reading this blog, really, I mention them a lot.  For a variety of reasons, we’re not having a lot of Christmas decorations this year, but one thing I couldn’t countenance was not making the new flat at least smell of Christmas.  Here are my pick of the best festive fragranced candles to make your house smell wonderful […]
