I know there are a few of us on BT that are fragrance addicts, so I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated place where we can share our thoughts.   This is not to take away from the lovely What Are You Wearing Today, Fragrance Edition thread, but more a place to post longer reviews, chat about new brands or releases, and just shoot the breeze on anything good and smelly   For me, I recently acquired 2 new decants that I've been anxiously awaiting.  Ever since Lachaton mentioned that MMM was releasing a new scent called  By The Fireplace  I've been itching to get my hands on it.  My decant arrived yesterday, so I'm looking forward to marinating in it this weekend.  Secondly, I recently picked up a tiny sample of Shiseido Nombre Noir.  Apparently it is one of the most expensive failures in perfume history - made by Serge Lutens for Shiseido back in the 80s.  Of course, with a backstory like that, I was dying to get a sniff   What's new on your scent radar?  Do tell!    
Hello Everyone!   I'm on the hunt for a new perfume! I went around smelling as much as I could and I came across this perfume called CHANCE EAU FRAÎCHE by Chanel, I absolutely love this smell but i was curious as to how long the wear lasts? What are some thoughts about this product? Also I heard many good reviews about the perfume called Flower Bomb by Viktor & Rolf & i'm curious what the thoughts are about that one as well! Thank you!

How many bottles of perfume does everyone have?
Looking for a warm vanilla based mens cologne.   Any suggestions?
I'm on the market for a sweet smelling, but mature, perfume. I have been loving Viva La Juicy, but I'm getting tired of it and want to try something new. I don't really care for super sugary scents (think cotton candy), but I love warm scents (think vanilla and caramel). Any suggestions?
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? )
I like Angel Parfume by Thierry Mugler but I am looking for a different frangrance "but similar to Angel" any recommendations. Someone said Gucci had one but I cannot remember the name.
Ok guys I'm really in love with Atelier's description of their scents and the few I've been able to smell IRL.  Since my Sephora doesn't carry many of the scents, I was thinking of getting their sampler pack directly from their website (where they then give you credit for that amount towards a later purchase of a bigger fragrance), but before I committed to what would likely be an expensive addition to my minimal scent collection (I otherwise wear ginger or Bvglari's Black--I can't stand most floral scents and am more of ginger, tea, or other quirky scents) I wanted to know how well it lasted on.   Also, anyone have any other scent suggestions for someone who likes scents with things like: Bergamot, Leather, Rain (naturalish clean scents as opposed to ones that your dryer sheets might come in), Ginger and hates: floral (esp things like rose & lily, I can deal with violet); "hippy" scents (basically if you can find it in incense, I can't wear it or be close to it without dissolving in sneezes, so things like patchouli, frankincense, myrrh, etc.)
What's everyone's experience with buying higher end perfume at places like CVS and Walgreens? Or does anyone have a favorite place for buying perfume at a discount? I have bought my husband Dolce and Gabbana cologne on Groupon before.   I'm looking at Marc Jacobs and Thierry Mugler on Walgreens and CVS right now because they would be around 50% cheaper.   I wasn't sure if these places got older bottles or if they just give better prices.
Hello all.   I have been hunting for a new scent for FOREVER. I know what I like but can't seem to find a good fit. I love what most people would describe as hippie scents (incense, sandalwood, amber, campfire, patchouli, spice market,  Arabian nights ) but I don't want to smell like a headshop - I work for a conservative company and so I would like a grown up fragrance with the notes that speak to me without getting a call from HR for a drug test.    I like those addictive woods, resins, and warm florals but more often than not find that scents in this family tend to be paired heavily with vanilla - which claws at me. I don't like anything too sweet, powdery or to musky. I do like scents that lean masculine and don't oppose wearing a men's or unisex fragrance.    Right now I am using the Ambre & Santal body wash/lotion by L`Occitane followed by Spanish Amber perfume by Pacifica. The Spanish Amber really speaks my language - but it does not have any sillage or staying power... and I have become 100% scent blind to it after years of use. That said, it is described as:  This modern and mystical blend has warm and resinous Amber notes at its heart, Rosy Geranium and woody Sandalwood in the middle and citrusy Bergamot and Elemi on top.   I have done countless trials at Sephora trying to find the right one to no avail. Some that I have tried without success:  Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Tom Ford Black Orchid Thierry Mugler Alien YSL Black Opium Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Tocca Beauty Cleopatra Juliette Has a Gun - all of them Hermes Eau des Merveilles Michael Kors Sexy Amber Fresh Cannabis Santal   Searching for specific notes has not served me and so I am hoping that my description of what I like/don't like will inspire some suggestions from you all. Thoughts?  TIA!!
I have a passion fruit body spray that I really love and was wondering if anyone could recommend a perfume that has notes of passion fruit it in, thanks! 
i smell great samples.JPG
Has anyone here tried or heard of the brand, i smell great? It was founded by Sophia Bush and Randi Shinder. I love Sophia and have been wanting to try out the brand, plus it has great reviews.    You can buy a sample pack for $14 which includes 1mL of each of the 4 scents and a coupon for $14 off whichever eau de parfum you like best.   ismellgreat dot com
Hello! I am not looking for anything incredibly specific, I like citrus or fruity fragrances that have warm/musk bases. I don't like overly sweet fragrances (caramel or cotton candy notes give me a headache). Just looking a fruity/citrusy scent that has a warm base to it. If you've ever smelled Into the Wild by Bath and Body Works or CK Euphoria Blossom, that's along the lines of what I'm after. Any ideas? Thank you!
So, the omnia paraiba mini that was available in a promo a couple months ago... it's smarter than I am. I can't figure out how to use it. I'm not even sure if it's a spray or a dabber thingy. If anyone could let me know how it works, I'd appreciate it.
Hello!   I am looking for a perfume that is good for the winter. My favorite scents include rose, chai, lemon, lavender, vanilla, and anything baked.    Thank you!
i want to add some new perfume to my stash. I have a sample of Marc Jacobs Mod Noir that I am definitely buying. I also have a sample of Alien which I like but will be fine with just the sample for now since I have 2. I'm considering the Marc Jacobs Daisy rollerball trio pack since they have good reviews and interest me. Marc Jacobs Dot looks intriguing. I tend to like sweet and floral scents. my signature scent is Chanel Chance. im open to any other suggestions.  I know I could go to the store and get samples but I have severe anxiety and would rather just order online. Thanks for any help
I am having trouble with perfumes lasting on me. Does anybody have a recommendation of a perfume that will last? How much should I spray to make it apparent to others in a good way?
I was hoping the fragrance-loving side of BT would be willing to give me a hand!   I got bored the other day and started comparing the scent notes of every. single. perfume. I have worn and loved that I could recall, just to see if they had any notes in common. The results? Sandalwood, Musk, Vanilla, and Orange (both Sweet and Blood).   Do any of you guys have a suggestion for a new scent based on that? I'm currently using Stella by Tocca, but I'm growing tired of it, and I want a new signature scent this 2016!
I just ordered Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf!!! Has anyone tried it?? Opinions?  
does the Orange Sanguine Rollerball fragrance pair well with a vanilla scent? 
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  
My boyfriend usually uses Old Spice for fragrance and wants to get away from that but most of the colognes we have tried don't have what he likes. Anyone know of one with a citrus undertone? I wanted to get him one for Christmas. Stronger the better but I need to start somewhere so any suggestions appreciated. Thank you!
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?
Can anyone please recommend a cologne similar to Burberry's Brit Rhythm? Thank you.
I love Hermes' Kelly Caleche, but its a bit much for my budget. Are there any similar scents out there? Thank you! Hermes' description: A reminder of a visit to the Hermès leather vaults, Kelly Calèche is a light, feminine, joyous expression of leather. It gives a nod to two in-house emblems, and translates the perfumer’s tactile and olfactory emotions into an evocation of leather worn next to the skin, gently tanned by the touch and edged with fresh petals.
I recently bought YSL black opium and was very happy to buy it after reading the reviews but somehow its just not staying at me that strong, has that happened to anybody else too ? Im wondering shall I keep it or return for something else.
I recently use the Sephora brand men shaving gel, and it smells really good, i really like the fragrance. And im really desperate wanting to find cologne of that smell, is there any?
Im not sure if the scent is due to perfume, hairspray, shampoo or even laundry products.  However there is this sharp scent I've smelled on a few women... It isn't floral.  Not sweet.  Not musky.  Just sort of sharp and clean.  Does anyone know what this is?  Just wondering.
