Fragrance
What is the difference btw a body mist and regular fragrance?  I was just browsing the body shop and came across the fact that the most abundant ingredient is alcohol. wouldn't it then just "fly away?" would you spray it after body lotion? or in what cases would you use a body mist?

Yaaaaaaaaay!   Now I wish I hadn't gone on such a fragrance buying kick lately, that coulda been a lotta points! Oh well, guess I'll just have to get more. Boo hoo.
I was absolutely in love with the Boyfriend perfume. Know it's being discontinued and extremely hard to find!   Does anyone have a recommendation for something similar to try?   Thanks!
I was so good during the Spring 15% off event but fragrances are my weakness! And now that REPLICA Jazz Club is available I cannot resist the siren call!   Planning to get any new perfumes 4/24 thru 5/11?

Recently I started enjoying lightning up candles at home. Why didn't I realize how great they smell before? I purchased a couple of them from BBW, a couple from Pier 1, and a few from Ross. I really liked the peach smell from BBW So I started looking up candles more, and I was really surprised when I saw a $80 ones. I think I'd never justify a such price for a candle. Who likes candles here? What are your favorite smells, brands, places to buy them?  Please enable me  
Im super addicted with the scent.  Does anyone have a recommendation of something comparable? thanks!

Am I the only one who looks at this new Carier La Panthere fragrance and can't help myself from saying... Or,  "It's made from real bits of panther, so you know it's good."   Seriously Cartier, I thought it was an April Fools joke. I almost wanna get it just as a jokey conversation piece "Haha look, I have Sex Panther for women" but... that's kinda pricey for a jokey conversation piece.   Unless it's really good! Then I am willing. Anyone smelled it? What's the scent like? What season would you say it's for? Long lasting? Yadda yadda... http://www.sephora.com/la-panthere-P385780

I love Philosophy's Amazing Grace line and it's my usual go-to on a daily basis. My last order from Sephora came with a sample of Marc Jacob's Daisy and I loved it! The only problem with both of these scents is the lasting power....there is none. Can someone please suggest a Spring/Summer scent that smells good AND lasts for longer than an hour or two?? I don't want a perfume that is too "young" as I'm 39 and don't want to smell like a teen. Any help would be great! Thanks so much!
Do any of you have a strong reaction, either for or against, celebrity fragrances?  I don't know what it is, and it doesn't matter if I love the celebrity or despise them, I just can't wrap my head around it.  I'm sure I am missing out on some great smelling scents as a result of this, and I know it is narrow-minded, but with so many fragrances out there to try, the whole celebrity thing just puts those at the bottom of my list.  Are there any that you think are a must try?   Sidebar: I was at my local TJ Maxx and I noticed they had TONS of celebrity fragrances available.  It got me wondering if other retailers are just having too much difficulty moving them off the shelves. 
Anyone try these yet? I'm completely and utterly obsessed with the Jazz Club scent. Finally the perfect balance between leather and sweet vanilla/rum for me! I also really love the Funfair Evening scent.   My bf bought Jazz Club for me as a graduation present (getting my Master's Degree), but used my VIB card, so I got an email asking me to review it, so I found out about it hehe.
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 was going on Fragrance.com to see if I could grab up some stuff with my 20% coupon.  When doing a search, I came across my first perfume ever!  Love's Baby Soft!!!  I can't believe that it's still kicking around.  Back in the 80's when I had my spiked green/blue hair and goth look perfected, I would never leave home without a little spritz here and there.  I'm kinda shocked that they still sell it.  It was $6.99 a bottle back then now it's apparently gone up to 12.19!  What memories...   So, what was your first perfume?
I smelled it in Macy's the other day and it wasn't bad. The dry down is real nice in my opinion. It just seemed very, very light. Not sure if I want to spend $70-100 for it. Might wait for it to pop up on ebay!

I'M LOOKING FOR A STRONG FRESH SMELL FOR SPRING/SUMMER THAT LASTS LONGER THAN A FEW MINUTES. I'VE TRIED D&L LIGHT BLUE (DOESN'T LAST LONG) CHANEL EAU FRAICHE (MAYBE AN HOUR) AND FRESH LIFE, WHICH I DIDNT LIKE. THE ONLY ONE THAT HAD SOME STAYING POWER WAS ACQUA DI GIOA. I BOUGHT DAISY EAU SO FRESH DELIGHT THE OTHER DAY AND IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE. $90 AND LASTED ABOUT A MINUTE AND YOU COULDN'T EVEN NOTICE IT. THANKS SO MUCH FOR ANY SUGGESTIONS!!!!

I'm one of those gals that are obsessed with fragrances and have about around 50 60 70 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? )

Jo Malone is going to launch another limited edition perfume silk blossom at the end of April. It is available in both 30ml and 100ml and the packaging is so pretty ( it does look like silk blossom).The notes are white pepper, silk blossom and moss. I wasn't too impressed with London rain collection, but I might be getting this one. What do you all think?

Hi lovelys! Im normally a neutral  eye shadow kind of girl, From my avatar is there any eye shadow colours anyone could recommend? Also, I'm in the market for a new summer fragrance. My only problem is when i go into Sephora i tend to start smelling them all and after awhile they all smell the same. I love fruity citrus long last for summer. Something light but that doesn't smell as if its for a teenager if that makes sense. lol I would appreciate anyones thoughts and suggestions.

I'm a little confused about the Miss Dior fragrances, they have 3 different ones with the same name. Which one use to be the Miss Dior Cherie? (I know that they recently renamed the "Miss Dior Cherie" as "Miss Dior" only
I have been using Opium as my signature scent for many years.  Unfortunately, YSL changed the formula a couple of years ago which smelled almost completely unlike the original perfume.  When I researched the situation, I discovered that there are many women in the world who, like me, have been using Opium almost exclusively for decades.  (Even more interesting to discover is that I am definitely not the only woman who, when wearing it in public, has been asked which perfume I was wearing by other women who loved the fragrance.)  Desperate, I bought a couple of bottles of the original formula on ebay, with the intention of switching to another perfume if YSL stuck with the change.   New reviews of the perfume here on Sephora seem to indicate that perhaps YSL has indeed gone back to the original Opium formula.  Most people would just go to a local mall and use a tester bottle, but the closest mall to my home is 75 miles away.   Is there someone who can enlighten me about this situation?

I usually wear one of the above mentioned perfumes....can't decide which new one to try in that same family.   I also use, Pink - fresh and clean     Thanks!
Has anyone tried this perfume? I saw it in Sephora's list of best sellers and saw that it's out of stock right now, but I've never heard of it. From the description, it sounds lovely.   I usually rotate between these perfumes: Burberry Summer, Marc Jacobs Daisy eau so Fresh, Armani's Acqua di Gioia, Prince Harvey's Hello, and Folle de Joie eau de parfum. (I have a bit of a perfume obsession.)   If you're familiar with (any of) these scents, could you advise whether I should consider getting Beach Walk?   Thanks!
what perfume would you recommend -- love bergamot & amber scents, nothing sweet or flowery?
When will sephora do triple points on fragrances again?
I am looking for something special to wear on my wedding day in early October. I am looking for something light but romantic, maybe that has a lotion as well so I can layer the scent.    I normally wear a Body Shop rose lotion with Chloe. I also like Viva La Juicy and Viva La Juicy La Fleur.   Thanks for any recommendations!
