Looking for a signature perfume.
I have tried a lot of perfumes but I haven't found the one for me. I like perfume that has sandalwood in it, I'm looking for a perfume similar to bath and body works fragrance mist called country chic. So far I liked see by Chloe, chloe by Chloe, viva la juicy by juicy couture. But I don't think they are the one for me. So I'm looking for that perfume that represents me.

Is it just me or Flowerbomb smells exactly the same on everybody?
I was at Sephora a few weeks ago, sampling Flowerbomb. I was waiting for the VIB sale to buy a big bottle of it! A SA asked me if I was wearing Flowerbomb. She mentioned how she thought it smells the same on everybody. And she made me realize something. It's true, I can recognize the scent from a mile away. I love it, but do I want to smell like everybody else? So anyway, she suggested Miss Dior, which I tried the next time, and OMG! I'm in love! I removed Flowerbomb from my wish list and replaced it with Miss Dior (so much cheaper anyway!).   Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Flowerbomb. I even bought the small refillable bottle. I just realized I want something more unique. Something that will blend with my skin and hair and become my own *signature (I hate that word!) scent.   True story. What do you think?

Transferring fragrance to sample bottles?
Hello, I just bought a full size fragrance and I was wondering if it was possible to use the small sample bottles you get for sephora for easy transportation? I'm sure it's possible since the employees transfer it from the full size bottle but I never looked hard enough to see how they actual do it without wasting a ton. Thanks in advance.

Anyone tried the LTD Comme Des Garcons scents?
I just noticed these…and many of the scents are limited with only a few left and no reviews (but someone is buying them). Anyone tried any of them? They sound amazing…unisex…but very pricey. I'd love some input from anyone who has tried them!!! Thanks. http://www.sephora.com/wonderwood-P390206?icid2=co mme_des_garcons_wonderwood_carousel_P390206_link

YOUR SCENT / YOUR COLLECTION
YOUR SCENT STORIES.   ok i'd like to preface this by saying that i don't intend this thread to be a bunch of navel gazing on my part. i just wanted to start a thread where people can just tell their scent stories. share your collection--or not. share what a certain perfume means to you. a story. why you love what you love. some scents that you ended up loving over time. whatever you feel to share !   andy warhol collected personal fragrances (cologne, perfume, etc). he would buy one, wear it continuously for 3 months, then put it in a box never to wear it again. then, throughout his life, he'd return to the box and smell the perfume, to be instantly transported to that very specific 3 month period of his life. this is one of my favorite bits of trivia.   f ragrance is so personal . subjective. much moreso than makeup, in my opinion (i don't even think that is a matter of opinion !!). i started my perfume hoarding a few years ago, way before any sort of serious makeup collection was developed. a lot of my collection is personal taste and selection, while a good portion of it were gifts (it's well known among family and friends that i'm obsessed with smells). some scents are obviously "me" (i'm definitely drawn to earthy and "darker" scents, for lack of a better term), others are things i'd have never reached for but have come to represent certain eras and are therefore attached to some heartstrings (such as MJ 'lola').   i can't be as disciplined as warhol, but there's still a slight method to my madness. i used to wear one perfume until it was gone, then move on to something else. now i wear a scent  almost  primarily for a few months, occasionally going back to "past" scents when i'm feeling nostalgic or missing something / someone. sometimes it's a happy thing, sometimes it's bittersweet, sometimes it's straight up masochistic. and i love it.   i live in a tiny place so i keep my perfumes on my book/vinyl shelf. some of these i haven't worn in years, but i keep them.   my current "now" scent:  diptyque philosykos (fig) my forever scent(s):  serge lutens ambre sultan and bvlgari jasmine noir favorite floral:  issey miyake l'eau d'issey most nostalgia inducing  1. v&r flowerbomb. it amuses me this took off the way it has, i remember when it was an exclusive at bergdorfs in nyc* and i got my hands on it and felt so special, now it's on everyone (*it was either an exclusive or it was gifted to me ahead-of-release. i can't quite remember, it was 2007ish !). 2. jo malone blue agava & cacao what is missing from my collection:  tom ford black orchid. it'll be mine someday. jo malone blue agava & cacao. any comme des garçons scent (which sephora has started carrying !!). and finally, le labo rose 31 and/or santal 33 personal trivia:  the little box pictured contains samples and deluxe samples. my favorites in there are probably tom ford santal blush (can't afford !), tom ford tuscan leather (can't afford !!!), and givenchy dance--which is very dear to me, it's a sample i got in japan, and i've never seen dance sold in the states ?? it's a perfect daytime spring smell.  best budget scents:  tokyo milk dark, hands down. i have two (can you even see them in the pics ?!), arsenic and tainted love. arsenic is my fave, i've run out but intend to grab it up again soon. not pictured:  jo malone amber & lavender, which i keep in my bathroom as an air freshener ! and rollerballs (only have a few and rollerballs i have i have a full size of)     and i thought some of you would be amused that my perfumes are tucked in below my bowie shelf

Perfume similar to Soap & Glory's Fruitigo scent (Butter Yourself, Pulp Friction, Foam Call)?
I am obsessed with the scrub, body wash, and lotion by Soap & Glory with their "Fruitigo" scent! I only wish they had a perfume or body mist with the scent as well so the scent would last all day. Has anyone tried this line and have any recommendations for a perfume that smells similar or would complement them well?!

Duplicated a discontinued scent
I have a scented oil I love.  The company stopped making the scent years ago but I have bottle that is full, but I've had it so long I really don't want to apply it to me skin.    It does smell the same and I want to find a company that can duplicate it for me.   Anyone have any recs on companies that provide this service for a reasonable cost?   Thanx

Perfumes- every last drop counts
For some reason, I can't bring myself to toss out a bottle of perfume when there are some 'literally' drops left! I pivot and turn the bottle at every conceivable angle to spray out what's possible. The rests it's in there until either has dusted up so I don't want to bother saving it or it actually vaporizes away.   Am I the only one that does this? Or does anyone have any tricks to get that last bit out?

Fall/Winter Fragrance??
I am searching for a new fragrance for the autumn and upcoming winter months. Some fragrances I like in general include Falling in Love by Philosophy, Glamorous by Ralph Lauren (now discontinued), Nicole by Nicole Richie, Honey by Marc Jacobs, Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren Blue, Angel by Thierry Mugler, Stella by Tocca, Pretty by Elizabeth Arden, Bath & Body Works Sensual Amber Parfum, Carolina Hererra 212 Sexy… to name a few.   I want something warm and sexy, but also unique and somewhat bold. I sampled Donna Karan Cashmere Mist and found it to be too powdery. I also tried Giorgio Armani Sí and liked it initially but it wore off fast. I also want something a little more bold and a bit different than those I've named above but while staying true to my fragrance "profile". Something sexy, seductive, and sophisticated. What do you recommend? Thanks :-)

My transition scent
As summer starts to fade and cooler weather is just around the corner, I have put away my sweet smelling scents in search of a spicier option. I have been LOVING the Nest: White Sandalwood lately. Can't get enough of this fragrance! It's earthy, spicy and a bit powdery. Very fresh and it's been my "go-to" for the past two weeks. This is my first Nest purchase and I can't wait to try another! Any one out there have any favorites?

Do you sell Nest's Eau de Parfum Coffret Set?
Hello! I got several free fragrances in my last Sephora order and fell in love with Midnight Fleur by Nest. I wanted to try more of this brand's fragrances without spending a lot of money and noticed that they make a set of five .25 oz mini bottles. Do you (still) sell these? I couldn't find them on the site, but I saw other people's reviews saying they bought them at Sephora. Are they available in-store only? Thank you

Is anyone else having problems with the pump on the Maison Martin Margiela scents?  I only bought mine in May, but the pump, well, doesn't.  I get a measly little dribble, not a good spray like when I first got it.  Don't know if it's a design flaw or I just got a bad one.  Hoping I can find some sort of replacement, because I adore the scent.

Hit List: Best Long-Lasting Fragrance
Hello All!   I've been looking for the perfect light, floral scent that lasts all day and can't seem to find one. I'm in love with Jo Malone's English Pear and Freesia and Peony and Blush Suede, but neither lasts more than four hours, even when layered together. I really love E&J Nirvana as well, but it doesn't last either The best I've found so far in terms of lasting power and sillage has been Balenciaga Florabotanica, can anyone recommend some slightly sweet florals that don't need reapplication during the day?   Thanks!
