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 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 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?
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!
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 through...so 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!
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!
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 Alien...to 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!
So sad to hear Kat Von D Sinner perfume is discontinued! I loved this fragrance so much and am almost out. Specifically came on the site to order more. Can anyone recommend a similar fragrance? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
I was recently chosen to receive and review the newest Marc Jacobs fragrance, Mod Noir. I came into work today to the lovely surprise package. Here is a little bit more info on the perfume itself before I get into my thoughts on it. **Copied from the product page: " A modern return to the classic note of intoxicating gardenia, Marc Jacobs Mod Noir elevates a signature scent into a contemporary sphere. The airy floral fragrance opens with a field of lush, dewy greens, which give way to freshly cut gardenias floating atop sparkling water. Creamy musks leave a sensual dry down on the skin. The striking bottle was inspired by Marc Jacobs’s quirky, striped fashion prints and the interplay of black and white in his iconic runway collections. Bold elements cleverly juxtapose classic and modern styles. The bottle’s linear black and white stripes contrast with its circular shape, and the shiny lacquer opposes the matte frosted finish. Notes: Greens, Gardenia, Creamy Musks. Style: Bold. Modern. Unique." Link to product: http://www.sephora.com/mod-noir-P395917?skuId=1709 856#pdp-reviews My first thoughts: 1. The bottle itself is cutely chic. To me it's very different than the usual MJ bottles, I still really like it 2. The fragrance is light and floral, but still manages to stay fresh. I absolutely love all of MJ's scents and this has not disapointed me at all. It is actually something I would buy for myself. It's perfect for spring & summer I'll come back with a more in depth review on it once I've worn it a couple of times. If there is anything else you would like to know please feel free to ask below Has anyone else gotten the chance to try this perfume out? What are your thoughts on it? *Sorry if this review is a little scattered. It's my first time reviewing something like this. I know there is usually a lot of up roar and anger when not everyone get these gifts but please try to be polite on this thread, I'm very lucky to have been chosen as an active member of BT. **Also disclosing the fact that this was a gift from Sephora and Marc Jacobs.
I just found this New fragrance set. The price is $58/CAD$70. I love mini perfume, but this set is too similar to the last one. Anyone is thinking getting this one?? http://www.sephora.com/bottled-dream-perfume-sampl er-P393744?skuId=1691583 It has: 0 .17 oz Bulgari Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette (Scent certificate redeems for 1.3 oz bottle) - 0.24 oz Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Eau de Parfum (Scent certificate redeems for 1 oz bottle) - 0.24 oz Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Eau de Parfum (Scent certificate redeems for 1 oz bottle) - 0.16 oz Escada Joyful Eau de Parfum (Scent certificate redeems for 1 oz bottle) - 0.25 oz Fresh Fresh Life Eau de Parfum (Scent certificate redeems for 1 oz bottle) - 0.16 oz Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette (Scent certificate redeems for 1 oz bottle) - 0.14 oz Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum (Scent certificate redeems for 1 oz bottle)
I would like use my flowerbomb samples to refill the small travel size bottle that came with a little funnel but I don't know how. Can you remove the spray tops or do you just keep spraying into the funnel until the vial is empty? Thank You for your help!
So I adore this perfume, love it. Issue is it's a toilette and doesn't last longer then maybe three hours or so. I have an all day event that I'm going to and want the scent to last a loooot, or at least maybe an hour or two, longer. So any recommendations on things that smell similar lotion or fragrance wise? Its base notes are: M andarin orange, basil, green tea, amber.
Hi Sephora, Can you please consider selling the Tom Ford Private Blends line here at Sephora stores in the U.S. or at Sephora.com? I have just bought one and plan to buy another- but can only buy them at my local Nordstrom. Nordstrom is getting my business instead of Sephora...;( Fans: if you agree, please post that you want these private blends too! Given that they are so expensive, I plan to buy only 1-2 per year, but still, they would sell!
