I've worn Amazing Grace for years, but every time Philosophy sells the scent changes. The fine perfume version was the closest thing I could find to the original scent I fell in love with but now it's gone. Almost every scent I try is too fruity or too green and I get an instant headache. I'm heartbroken to not have a fragrance and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Hello my beautiful people! This post is inspired by LCResz's recent thread of Perfumes and Oils Collection: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Fragrance/The-perf 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!
So I was looking at my fragrance collection the other day and while this isn't exactly news to me...I was just realizing that I overwhelmingly gravitate towards male fragrances. But there's a specific kind of male fragrance that I like...not those fresh, sporty scents (my husband likes those). I like the ones that I can only describe as woody, earthy, musky and spicy. Some of the male fragrances I wear are: Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb (ha! I actually had a Flowerbomb mini and gave it away) Tom Ford Grey Vetiver Terre D'Hermes Maison Martin Margiela 'Replica' Jazz Club Any other ladies out there gravitate towards male fragrances? If so, which ones?
HI! Just wondering what y'all's opinions are on One Direction's three fragrances (Our Moment, That Moment, and You & I). I haven't tried any of them, but I am eager to and am wondering which ones you recommend. Thanks!
I'm a huge Atelier Cologne fan. Wish these were available last week during the fragrance event.... But still really excited to try these! VIB and Rouge exclusive for now. Anyone try them yet? The descriptions all sound wonderful! All are available in three sizes, 3.3 oz for $125, 1 oz with a leather case for $85, 0.25 oz for $25.
ive never used jo malone perfumes, because there is no store nearby. i heard about jo malone perfumes combination. what does it mean? you use two kind perfume at the same time? and if i spray only one for example dark amber and ginger lily its wont be as good as combination ?? thanks in advance
I'm looking into buying one of the TF private blends, but there's not a single location (Sephora or otherwise) that carries them, even within 150km, for me to test out before I commit. And Tom Ford's website doesn't give out samples... and even if they did, they don't ship to Canada. Since they're almost $250CAD each for the smallest size, I don't want to buy them all in one go. Does anyone have any idea how I can sniff a few or get a hold of legit samples (I don't trust ebay) before I take the plunge? Here are the ones I'm considering: http://www.sephora.com/cafe-rose-P393157?skuId=148 0680 http://www.sephora.com/rive-d-ambre-P393161?skuId= 1565662 http://www.sephora.com/jasmin-rouge-P393141?skuId= 1449115 http://www.sephora.com/shanghai-lily-P393155?skuId =1565696 http://www.sephora.com/champaca-absolute-P393139?s kuId=1449099 http://www.sephora.com/plum-japonais-P393145?skuId =1565688 http://www.sephora.com/santal-blush-P393159?skuId= 1449263
I ordered the Chloe perfume online during the 3x the points event, and it finally came today in the mail! Unfortunately, when I opened the beautiful box, I was met with a sad and broken bottle of Chloe. Half of it had leaked out, the rest was in the bottle but the pump was completely goo-ed shut. It just makes me so sad to see such a beautiful (and expensive) perfume go to waste (will be returning, obviously). Wish it had been packaged better so I don't have to deal with replacing it.
BEFORE 3X POINTS ENDS.... HELP 😦OK so you can buy the bottle separate and it's 1.7 Oz or the gift set for the same price and get 2 lotions and a 1.6 Oz bottle, Did they really give .1 less or is this a typo?
UPDATE: the 3X points fragrance promo will run from February 5th through the 14th! Thanks, VioletLavender, for posting the dates to the thread! For me, I'm already trying to decide between the following: http://www.sephora.com/wonderwood-P390206?skuId=16 61297 http://www.sephora.com/jour-d-hermes-absolu-P39063 7?skuId=1650456 http://www.sephora.com/blanche-immortelle-P387923? skuId=1637750 http://www.sephora.com/silver-iris-P382331?skuId=1 562164 What do you have your eye on? What types of scents do you tend to gravitate towards?What are some scents you recommend to others?
I've been wearing Lavanila Pure Vanilla since last summer or so, and I absolutely love the scent. However, I'm wondering if my bottle of perfume is losing potency. I know that over time we become immune to scents that we smell frequently, so I've taken care not to put on more so that I don't overdue it. But before when I'd get whiffs of it regularly, now it seems to be totally gone within a couple of hours, and I used to get soooo many compliments on it (just from walking by strangers), whereas now no one really comments on it, or someone has to get super close before they notice. Is it possible my bottle of perfume has lost its potency? I know light can affect fragrance, but the bottle lives in my windowless bathroom, and aside from the hour each day I'm in that room it's completely dark otherwise. Has anyone else experienced this? Do perfumes die off?
My fiance has mentioned to me many times that he is almost out of cologne. I would like to buy some for him for valentine's day. Can anyone recommend some fantastic smelling colognes you like to smell on your man? He is 21 years old if that helps. Thank you!
I've been reading a ton of top five fragrance lists and it seems like all of them have CHANEL No.5 on them. I personally don't care for the perfume, so I'm wondering if it's just me or if people actually like it or if they just say that they do. Any thoughts?
So I need some help! I have been with my spouse for 3 years and have tried LOTS of perfumes and he hates all of them. He said he would like me to smell "sexy, like your going to a club." ...........this is what I have tried (and probably more!) Light blue, viva la juicy, all perfumes by Victoria secret, chanel chance, chanel eau fraiche, Hollister so cal, stella, bright crystal, dolce, acqua di gioa, my burberry, anything vanilla.., burberry brit, adidas sport, viva la juicy noir, narsico rodriguez... you get the point! ANY suggestions???
if I send a perfume sampler to my friend - when she choses the one she likes can she redeem the certificate to get the full size shipped to her or is there an extra shipping fee? there is no Sephora near her.
Ladies and gents, I've been looking for a signature fragrance for the better part of 9 months now. I've spent more money than I care to admit in sample vials over at lucky scent and surrender to chance and FINALLY found what I was looking for. Serge Lutens Douce Amere! Sadness, it seems it may have been discontinued already? Could someone more familiar with this line chime in please? I don't see it available as a 50ml spray anymore, but they still show the bell jar on the SL website. Can anyone recommend places I might still be able to buy a full size of this? I have combed eBay, Barneys and The Perfume Shoppe without luck. Added degree of difficulty - I am in Canada. I found a bottle at a perfume store in Spain but they wouldn't take my credit card. Thanks! eta: if anyone even has a used bottle to trade, I will make it worth your while!
Now I'm hooked! I went into Saks yesterday and I didn't get chance to smell everything but WOW! I was impressed! I use like heavier scents like wood, musk, amber, oud so I never thought JM was for me. I walked out with Dark Amber & Ginger Lily and Wood Sage & Sea Salt. Great combination! I'm just sad Saks is over an hour away! What are some of your favorite scents within Jo Malone? I already have my eyes on Oud & Bergamont! I got a few samples of lime basil and mandarin and I definitely want to get that one as well! I can tell this is going to be very dangerous!
I was just getting ready for a work meeting and was contemplating putting on a new scent I have that includes cognac as an element. And then I thought, hm, not sure I want to smell even a little bit like alcohol at a work event during the day even if it's just my perfume. Which got me thinking more. Thoughts on appropriate perfume for work? Obviously we shouldn't be drowning in scent but how much is okay and what scents? One that smells like tobacco or cognac? All input is appreciated and especially thoughts on the best scents for work. Thanks!
Bvlgari's Jasmin Noir is my favorite fragrance of all time, but it never seems to be in stock! Could anyone recommend some similar fragrances, other than Very Irresistible by Givenchy and Crystal Noir by Versace? I'm looking for something with tonka bean or vanilla and anise or licorice. I was only ever able to get a 1oz bottle of Jasmin Noir before it went out of stock about a year and a half ago, and I've only got half the bottle left. I don't really trust getting it from Amazon because of perfume counterfeiters being a problem there. Any recommendations are appreciated!
Has anyone worn this scent? If so, can you tell me how you like it. It sounds like it would smell great. I have been looking for a scent similar to Bliss Spa and this has some of the same notes. I have been to a couple of Sephora stores and have not see it at either to get a sample. Thanks!!!
