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!    
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'm looking for a new scent that is jasmine or gardenia. Can anyone suggest a fragrance for me? Thanks!
With summer coming, I find myself in search of a new summer fragrance.    For summer, I love light, fresh scents that remind me of the beach or the ocean. Giorgio Armani's Acqua di Gioia has been a long time favourite, along with Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue.   This year, I'm looking at Bobbi Brown's Beach, and Maison Martin Margiela Replica Beach Walk.   What are your fave fragrances for summer?    
Does anyone know of a perfume/fragrance that smells like the Moroccan oil brand treatment?  
Hello, just wondering if anyone has received the Givenchy tote using the code JET2PARIS-if so, what material is it made out of, and how large is it? How do you like it? Thanks! 
To buy perfume from sephora online or store ? which one's better and authentic ? thanks
Blooming Bouquet smells amazing omg, i so want to buy it. BUT, i looked at there seem to be a stronger version of it out there and id love to get that too. Without taking the risk of buying it automatically i wanted to ask, what is the difference between the original and the absolute one.    I know for other scents that do this like bright crystal, that scent smells more floral and musky while **bleep** the absolute version smells like it but more berries. Thanks 
Is there a similar fragrance to Indigo by Nest that is cheaper? Thanks! 
so....what are your go-to home fragrances ?    i have 3, currently, that reign as favorites. two candles and one incense.   candles NEST home -- moroccan amber . i really really rate nest candles. their output is incredible, you get your money's worth. and i love this scent. it's warm and cozy, and while it smells like 'home' to you may add a slight air of intrigue and mystery to guests. DIPTYQUE vanille . a vanilla that is not too sweet. deep, warm, creamy. as i said in the hauls thread when i got it last month...i didn't expect to like this just as much as i did. it's true love.     incense BLACKBIRD BALLARD incense pyres in AI . they describe it as follows: "Ai  contrasts the green leafy plants of our gardens with a sophisticated richness of the marble covered palaces of our dreams." so, a cooling grassy marble. this is another one i didn't expect to love as much as i did, but when i burnt it i was intoxicated. the notes are geranium, rose stem, moss and mint. though i  swear  i detected a bit of zesty lemon. it's sharp and cooling, not too floral but earthy. adore.      how about you guys ? what do you like in your home ?
Guys you dont sale Jean Paul Gaultier "Le Male" anymore?
So I've recently become obsessed with fragrances and I know Sephora doesn't currently sell The Clean Summer Sun fragrance, but I know it did in 2015. I was just wondering if any of you had a chance to smell it/test it out and your thoughts on it? I can't seem to find many reviews on it. I want something that's aquatic/fruity and summery. I also am interested in the Clean Skin fragrance for summer/winter and was wondering what people's thoughts on that one are? Is it really musky or more light/airy?   I currently wear black opium for nighttime/evenings, so I'm looking for a more summer/daytime scent. I do enjoy Marc Jacob's Daisy Dream, but it never seems to last one me. I also like Jo Malone's Wild Bluebell. I also enjoy Fresh's Sugar Lychee scent, but again, it doesn't last on my skin. I really wanted to like Armani's Acqua Di Gioia, but it smelled too chemically on my skin and I am trying to stay away from DG Light Blue since I know many people wear it. Let me know your thoughts on those two Clean scents or another other recommendations would be appreciated!
Has the perfume See by Chloe been completely discontinued? Or is it just not available through Sephora anymore? Couldn't find it on the Chloe website either.
I am allergic to Chanel no 5!  I got some as a Xmas gift (the eau de parfum) and it made me break out.  Pretty bad.  I didn't want to admit it was that even though I hadn't changed anything else so I sprayed one spray in my elbow nook and within 2 hours a minor rash started.   I gave it to my mom and it works fine on her.   Anyone who wears many different perfumes (like me) find something they are allergic to?
hi im looking to buy a cologne for my husband. i like a real masculine smell...woodsy...fresh...clean...but with a flowery touch. any advice of what to get???
I have several fragrances I have my eye on and am always looking for new scents.   What about you? What will you get?
Does anyone know when the fragrance samplers with the certificate will come to Canada? I see them on the US site. 
I purchased a 55 dollar perfume and it did not get me 165 points - instead, I got 52 points! Is it just me not getting the right points? Has anyone else noticed it?
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 am trying to narrow down my choice for a full size fragrance. I have gotten the short list to 4 but am having trouble making a final decision so any input appreciated.  My four possibilities,  in no particular order are:   Tom Ford Black Orchid   Jimmy Choo Illicit   Martin Maison Lazy Sunday Morning   Versace Eros Femme    I have tried all 4 and like them all but would like to narrow it down to 1 or 2 to purchase full size.    Thoughts, opinions, experiences with any of the above? Your favorite of the above?    Thanks for the help.        
I'm dying to buy Replica Lazy Sunday Morning but it is out of stock. I think it might be best to start with the rollerball anyway so that I can decide if I want to shell out for the full size.     Is the rollerball still good for this scent? It's such a subtle fragrance that I feel like it needs to be applied sparingly. How can I do this with a rollerball?      
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.
This is the one with mini rollerballs of all seven fragrances in the line -- Midnight Fleur, Amazon Lily, Dahlia & Vines, Verde, Indigo, White Sandalwood and Paradise. My faves are White Sandalwood (the one I was most intrigued by & wanted to smell), Midnight Fleur, Verde and Amazon Lily ... in that order. I find Dahlia & Vines way too strong, like you could smell me coming a mile away if I wore it. Indigo is meh. I almost used a 100 pt perk to get one and now I'm glad I didn't. Paradise is somewhere in the middle.    What are y'all's faves of the newer scents they've added? Anyone else purchased the sampler? I will probably buy the full size of White Sandalwood with the $25 off coupon next month. I want another heavier, fall/winter scent in addition to Nirvana Black that I already have. I wanted to smell White Sandalwood to make sure they weren't too similar and they're not.
Hello,   I was wondering how can I get samples for fragrances, some of the Sephora stores do not carry all the fragrances that I am looking at, as it is only available online or in specific stores. I tried to email support however got the generic reply to call which I do not like to do, Any suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help and before I get blasted, I am VIB Rouge so not trying to be cheap, it is just when buying a $200 fragrance I would like to be able to sample it and I hope I do not have to call since in my experience with calling I get no help.   Thanks, Baba
I was wondering if anyone actually owned parfum (most concentrated type of perfume, DIFFERENT from eau de parfum, the second strongest). I think it would be neat to get some and it would make my perfume collection complete, but where does one buy it? Does Sephora carry any?
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.)
