which of the Philosophy fragrances smell like a fresh, well scrubbed body?
I want to know which of the Philosophy fragrances has just a very fresh, well scrubbed body smell?  I have smelled it on others but not asked which one they were wearing.

Perfume bottle suggestions...
HI all! i ordered the cute little Sephora Universal atomiser, thinking I could transfer my Tory Burch Rollerball perfume into it.  Unfortunately, it isn't going to work...it is adapted for spray-type bottles and it doesnt open up for pouring.   I want to get that perfume out of the rollerball, because it just seems like I don't get enough product out of the roller ball...then I feel like a kid scribbling all over myself  trying to get enough coverage! Plus, I am afraid over time the product inside will become contaminated with any body oils or dirt it may come into contact with from my skin.   Any suggestions? ( other than next time don't be a cheapo and just buy the darn spray bottle and be done with it!) EDIT: If one pays enough attention, all one has to do is unscrew the bottom, hold it upside down, and pour a perfume into it!  :::shuffles away embarassed::::

Nest Amazon Lily
I just got an order in the mail yesterday and I was supposed to get this sample, but it wasn't in there. The card was in there, but no actual sample. The card was really flat, like no sample had actually been in there ever, but I did search the box just in case and nope, nothing! I was really looking forward to trying this fragrance because it sounded so different. Lime, tangerine, AND musk--really intriguing! Any opinions on this one from those who have actually had a chance to try it?

Mini Fragrance Sample Containers
Sephora needs to carry the mini fragrance sample containers like the ones at Nordstrom.   I buy my fragrances only if I have a sample to test at home. What smells lovely in the tester may change on me & doesn't work for me.    Example: I love Paloma Picasso perfume. The way it smells in the tester & on others. However, when i wear it, after about an hour, the fragrance changes on me & it isn't for me. I've sniffed my wrists, sniffed the bottle, two different scents.

Buying a new fragnance
How do you guys go about it? Usually when I go to my Sephora, it is super busy and there are people spraying themselves all over with testers (wtf) making it impossible to smell anything at all.   Last time I asked for a sample of a perfume I'm thinking of getting for my wedding day, however, I got a sad little sample that wasn't even filled 1/3. Would it be weird to go back and ask for another sample? I just want to be sure I'm picking out the right perfume for my wedding.   Do you guys ask for samples, use testers in the store or just go by notes?

MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA REPLICA Beach Walk?
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!

Perfume for Mom
I want to purchase a roller ball collection or a few specific items for my mother for her birthday. She asked me to replace her last perfume - Flowers by Kenzo, which I think give a good idea of her scent preference, so I don't necessarily want to get a sampler that will have other styles she doesn't like. She also likes Thierry Mugler. What are a few specific fragrances (perhaps Roller ball items) that you would recommend for a 60 year old woman of these scent preferences?

Looking for a refreshing body wash
Now that summer is in full force I'm in need of a body wash that's going to leave me feeling refreshed at the end of the day.    I'm *this* close to purchasing a bottle of Lush's Dirty shower gel , but before I do I wanted to find out if there's something else out there that I would enjoy.   My idea of refreshing includes clean, herbal, minty and citrus notes.  Definitely nothing sweet.  I like a strong scent, nothing too subtle. My taste may even verge on masculine.   A few "fresh" shower gels I've tried already:   Lush Dirty Shower Gel - Minty and herbal without smelling like tooth paste - my favorite Clean Shower Fresh - Love the scent but wish it was stronger and the formula wasn't so runny H20 Sea Lotus - Okay, but something about it was too artificial for my nose Bliss Lemon Sage - Pleasant scent, but it wasn't strong enough for me

How to combat heavy perfume?
I am prone to nausea quite frequently and it can be triggered easily by scents. Mostly by fragrances that are way too strong. There are certain types of scents that trigger my nausea even if it isn't too strong (like melon, vanilla, "bakery" type scents)   Do you know of any way to counteract fragrances (usually when someone wears too much or uses one my nausea hates). I don't want to be rude and tell someone not to wear their favorite perfume (especially if it isn't that strong to begin with). But I frequently get so sick that I can't do anything.

letting you in on a treasure i discovered
I went to Austin, TX last week and in this one particular boutique, I came across THE BEST SMELLS EVER. I looked at the price tag $125 and said "ha" and put it down without even looking at the name. Then as the smell began to develop on me I was like "omg I NEED this." I could even smell it on my arm the next morning. I couldn't find the store again, so I went on google and put in every scenario possible: perfume on congress ave, perfume sold in Austin,etc. Finally...after 2 hours...I found it! The line is called "Juliette Has A Gun." EVERY one of them smells amazing. This brand is only sold in 17 stores in the US. South Carolina, FL, Austin, Houston, San Diego, Rhode Island, and NY were the only states that carry it. I ordered the "Try It Kit" on their website for $14. If you decide to purchase a full bottle, they give you the $14 credit toward it. It's got to be done within 2m. I also found them on ebay for around $80. Hope everyone gets to try them out!!! :-)

Fragrance empties....list for for a whole year Challenge!
Inspired by the empties threads I wanted to create a challenge for people to use up all their extra fragrances lying around, this challenge will go for a year and then can continue if people like it enough. you don't actually have to hang onto the bottles for a whole year...that would be kind of eccentric. however you can post as you go or post at the end of the year and write down reviews it will also be a good go to thread to look back on to see what you like and don't like over time. best part samples count as empties too.  have fun hopefully this makes sense. we are five months into the year so this will go from May 2014 - May 2015. pics are welcome!

Fragrance and memories
Has anyone had a fragrance remind them of something? I'll give an example. I got the niche perfume sample set a week ago.   When I tried on Orange Sanguine by Atelier Cologne, I was taken back to my childhood. It smelled like my mom's kitchen in Phoenix, AZ when we would make fresh orange juice! Man, I remember getting excited when the oranges were ready to be picked, because I knew our kitchen would smell good for days and I'd have fresh orange juice, lol! (Seriously, fresh oranges and orange juice smell and taste waaayyy better than store bought OJ)   And now I have yet another perfume on my "must get" list! Le sigh....

Show Me Your Mini Perfume Collection!
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!
