Do you mean 
I'm one of those gals that are obsessed with fragrances and have about around 50 60 70 80 and still collecting...(if you want to call it that.) So I would like to know what are you wearing today?   I'm wearing Obsession...(hahaha kinda fits this thread, doesn't it? )
Is there a perfume that smells like the moriccanoil hair and body product line (original fragrance).
I have tried lots of them and they last only a couple of hours and I can barely smell them. I love floral and sexy sensual scents, but nothing lasts  
  Okay so, this may be the most commonly known thing in the world, but I'd never know it. What is the difference amongst the different kinds of perfume? (i.e. parfum, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, etc)
I completely fell in love with Versense about 3 years ago and it was discontinued right after I bought it.  I found a replacement bottle about a year ago but I don't think I'll be so lucky this year.  If you haven't smelled it, it is a crisp, light, grapefruity, lime, soft "green" scent.  Not floral or sweet.  It's really hard to describe!  I tried to use the computer at the Sephora store the last time I ran out and an associate even helped me and NOTHING came up that was like it.  I'm desperate.  If I can't find a stray bottle still lingering somewhere I need to finda new scent and I have not had any luck.  I just tried Honey by Mark Jacobs but it's a little too sweet for my taste and I've been spoiled by having the perfect scent already.  Can anyone suggest anything like what I described?
so....what are your go-to home fragrances ?    i have 3, currently, that reign as favorites. two candles and one incense.   candles NEST home -- moroccan amber . i really really rate nest candles. their output is incredible, you get your money's worth. and i love this scent. it's warm and cozy, and while it smells like 'home' to you may add a slight air of intrigue and mystery to guests. DIPTYQUE vanille . a vanilla that is not too sweet. deep, warm, creamy. as i said in the hauls thread when i got it last month...i didn't expect to like this just as much as i did. it's true love.   incense BLACKBIRD BALLARD incense pyres in AI . they describe it as follows: "Ai  contrasts the green leafy plants of our gardens with a sophisticated richness of the marble covered palaces of our dreams." so, a cooling grassy marble. this is another one i didn't expect to love as much as i did, but when i burnt it i was intoxicated. the notes are geranium, rose stem, moss and mint. though i  swear  i detected a bit of zesty lemon. it's sharp and cooling, not too floral but earthy. adore.      how about you guys ? what do you like in your home ?
I am kind of nervous when I wear perfume because I feel like the scent of the perfume clashes and gives off a skunky mess stink. I mean, how can you avoid the perfume scent you wear to not mix with any other smells and such lie deoderant, hair conditioner, and other smell..I really want to wear perfume but I am iffy about the reactions
Topazbeth asked about lipstick rules in another thread, and that got me thinking about fragrance rules.  You know, like heavier perfumes in the winter or gender specific fragrances... Do you follow them?   I've flaunted the season ones whenever the mood hits, but the gender ones are kind of bugging me these days.   ScentTrunk accidentally sent me the man's sample box instead of the women's one one month, and I really liked a couple of the selections enough to wear.  The whole gender rule just seems more difficult for me to break for some non-logical reason though.
Does anyone else buy scented candles from Sephora? I purchased this set of Tocca candles and I am OBSESSED with Cleopatra. What are your burning this moment?
I finally opened my 100 point Marc Jacobs Mod Noir (rip off for 100 points...but...whatever).  To me it smells exactly like DVF Tatiana...which brings back memories.  Kerosene Dirty Flower Factory smells like the lilac bushes my grandparents had...but lilac isn't in the scent notes at all.  What scents bring back memories and what are they. A few scents I've dumped, even though I loved them, because the related memories weren't ones I wanted to hold on to.
You can buy the new Jimmy Choo fragrance, Illicit, at Macy's, Bloomies, and Lord & Taylor. Will it be released at Sephora before the official August 31st launch date? I need instant gratification but also want my Sephora points for such an expensive purchase. Thanks!
I smelled Commodity Gold, and really liked it. Am I the last person to discover this brand? What are your other favorite Commodity fragrances?
I know the lights the products sit under changes the color, but what can it do for the smell of fragrance?   I bought a perfume yesterday in store. Sprayed it on a tester stick, on myself, smelled some coffee to clear out my nose, smelled it again, walked outside to step in the fresh air and smelled it on my arm, liked it, and went ahead and bought it. Got home, opened it, and as soon as I opened the box I could tell I no longer liked the scent. Sprayed it on myself and again, didn't smell the same at all! This isn't the first time I've had this happen either. D:
I've been looking for a new fragrance and narrowed down a few I'd like to try on the Sephora website but really want to try in person before buying. Most of the fragrances I am looking at aren't available in a Sephora store within 100 miles of where I live. Is there a way to obtain a small sample without having to pay $24 and up for roller ball versions?
Loved Kate Walsh boyfriend fragrance and miss it so much.  I remember a Tokyo Milk fragrance smelling similar but can not remember the name of it.  Any suggestions?
My boyfriend wears Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier and I love the smell. What might a complimentary women's fragrance be? I'm looking for a perfume that has similar fragrance notes.
Hello my beautiful people!   This post is inspired by LCResz's recent thread of Perfumes and Oils Collection: umes-and-oils-collection/td-p/1451444. While I love perfumes, I don't have much of a perfume and oils collection. I am more of a mini perfume collector.   I am obsessed with minis and I started last July. And I think that I have collected quite a few! I don't really care much about brands of perfumes or how it smells, but more about what the bottle looks like.   Here is my mini perfume collection! I have it stored on top of a Pier 1 Hayworth Collection Lingerie Chest (but I use it for jewelry and makeup storage!) I am going to run out of room soon!   I would love to see your mini perfume collection!
What would you include? I was disappointed in the last offering. What would be your dream fragrance collection?
Does the fragrance from DKNY Be Delicious less potent than it used to be? My Dad got it for me when I was 12, and I've bought it ever since, but now I feel like I'm having to apply it more often than I used to. I almost feel like switching to Elizabeth and James because I've tried both Black and White, and to me they're similar to the smell of DKNY, but they last way longer. 
I can't contain my excitement for the newest addition to Narciso For Her Line: L'Absolu, in a beautiful dark berry bottle! I love For Her EDP in the pink bottle, but used it so much this year- I am probably halfway or 3/4 this is a great replacement!   I thought I was going to have to wait until September to see this launch but thankfully Sephora opened it up to VIB's early!  
its the newest  perfume by Viktor & Rolf and will this perfume be on sephora until summer?
Hello BTers! Last week, I purchased a large TF fragrance (8.4oz / 250ml) using a 20% off code from Saks online. Unfortunately, they did not and will not provide any kind of atomizer (and pictures online seem to indicate it comes with a funnel). I was just wondering if anyone could recommend some kind of decanting kit / tools, and even any favorite atomizers out there? Thanks!
Does anyone know of any fragrances similar to Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black, Tokyo Milk Dark Bulletproof, or Givenchy Pi?
Anyone ever heard of this?! It's awesome. "Essence of Norway."
Hey gals! I am SO picky with perfumes. I've smelled hundreds of perfume and only like 3 scents :-(     1) Chanel Eau Fraiche  2) Juliette Has a Gun Anyway 3) Viva La Juicy   My favorite is the Chanel, BUT, it does not linger on me and sits very close to the skin so no one can smell it on me. Are there any similar scents that are strong enough for other to smell and last longer than 20 minutes?! Maybe I missed one in the sniffings....   Thanks for your help!    
I'm looking for a scent that has a vanilla base and preferably citrus top notes. Something possibly a bit edgy/rock and roll. I'm a leather jacket wearing, classic rock kind of girl. I hate overly floral/powdery scents. In the past I've worn Hugo Boss Orange, Vera Wang Lovestruck, Dior Hypnotic Poison but I want a change. Any ideas? Thanks! Edit:  Also, I live in Australia and our sephora doesn't stock a lot of the things you guys have listed so I'm primarily interested in designer brand names (example: Prada, Versace, Dior, etc) that would be carried in Myers department store. 
Hi, I didn't see a thread to piggy back on - so here goes. I'm trying to time a purchase of a Tom Ford fragrance that unfortunately Sephora doesn't offer. What's the best strategy / channel to make this purchase so as to maximize on some kind of reward or discount (I'm in the U.S. for what it's worth)? Thanks!
** Closed ** I've seen so much generosity on BT lately and I want to keep the good vibes going! This weekend I went through my sample stash and discovered I had way too many fragrance samples. I'm planning to giveaway 4 fragrance sample boxes; 1. Tom Ford Velvet Orchid, 2. Chloe, 3. Burberry (My Burberry & Brit Rhythm), 4. Mixed box (Versace Yellow Diamond, Versace Bright Crystal, Dior Jadore, Thierry Mugler name a few).     The rules are easy. US only. Respond to this post and indicate the box you'd like. Since we're getting into the hot summer season, include your favorite summertime drink! Mine is Peach Lemonade!     I'll tally on Thursday 05/28 after 8pm EST and announce the winners on Friday 05/29! Have fun!
I had a few of the clean sample vials sitting in my perfume sample jar that I found a way to sort of repurpose.   I liked how they smelled, but I knew I'd never use them as a perfume. After I ran out of febreeze, I poured in one sample vial and filled the empty febreeze bottle with water.  It made the best fabric spray!  I used it on my drapes and rugs. My whole house smelled soooooo clean and fresh!

Does anybody know of a fragrance that is similar to this? My husband really likes it but I want to change it up a little.
