HI! Just wondering what y'all's opinions are on One Direction's three fragrances (Our Moment, That Moment, and You & I). I haven't tried any of them, but I am eager to and am wondering which ones you recommend. Thanks!
UPDATE: the 3X points fragrance promo will run from February 5th through the 14th! Thanks, VioletLavender, for posting the dates to the thread! For me, I'm already trying to decide between the following: http://www.sephora.com/wonderwood-P390206?skuId=16 61297 http://www.sephora.com/jour-d-hermes-absolu-P39063 7?skuId=1650456 http://www.sephora.com/blanche-immortelle-P387923? skuId=1637750 http://www.sephora.com/silver-iris-P382331?skuId=1 562164 What do you have your eye on? What types of scents do you tend to gravitate towards?What are some scents you recommend to others?
Ladies and gents, I've been looking for a signature fragrance for the better part of 9 months now. I've spent more money than I care to admit in sample vials over at lucky scent and surrender to chance and FINALLY found what I was looking for. Serge Lutens Douce Amere! Sadness, it seems it may have been discontinued already? Could someone more familiar with this line chime in please? I don't see it available as a 50ml spray anymore, but they still show the bell jar on the SL website. Can anyone recommend places I might still be able to buy a full size of this? I have combed eBay, Barneys and The Perfume Shoppe without luck. Added degree of difficulty - I am in Canada. I found a bottle at a perfume store in Spain but they wouldn't take my credit card. Thanks! eta: if anyone even has a used bottle to trade, I will make it worth your while!
I was just getting ready for a work meeting and was contemplating putting on a new scent I have that includes cognac as an element. And then I thought, hm, not sure I want to smell even a little bit like alcohol at a work event during the day even if it's just my perfume. Which got me thinking more. Thoughts on appropriate perfume for work? Obviously we shouldn't be drowning in scent but how much is okay and what scents? One that smells like tobacco or cognac? All input is appreciated and especially thoughts on the best scents for work. Thanks!
Its that time again!! Bring your punch, cookies, and snacks! Bring the glitter, fun and holiday cheer! If you dont have a Christmas party to attend, or your family is far away this is for you! Merry Christmas BT!
Now I'm hooked! I went into Saks yesterday and I didn't get chance to smell everything but WOW! I was impressed! I use like heavier scents like wood, musk, amber, oud so I never thought JM was for me. I walked out with Dark Amber & Ginger Lily and Wood Sage & Sea Salt. Great combination! I'm just sad Saks is over an hour away! What are some of your favorite scents within Jo Malone? I already have my eyes on Oud & Bergamont! I got a few samples of lime basil and mandarin and I definitely want to get that one as well! I can tell this is going to be very dangerous!
I've been reading a ton of top five fragrance lists and it seems like all of them have CHANEL No.5 on them. I personally don't care for the perfume, so I'm wondering if it's just me or if people actually like it or if they just say that they do. Any thoughts?
I absolutely love fragrances with apple notes in them. I LOVE DKNY Be Delicious as well as Beautiful Day from bath and body works. Any of you know of any other scents with apple notes in them? Please let me know!
hi y'all! i'm looking for a fragrance (or if you have a better idea) for my almost 10 year old niece. she's a dancer, so she's used to putting on make up & whatnot, and i'm sure she's tried her sister's scents (sister is 16). what are some scents that would be good for her? would any of the multi packs be good? thanks!
Bvlgari's Jasmin Noir is my favorite fragrance of all time, but it never seems to be in stock! Could anyone recommend some similar fragrances, other than Very Irresistible by Givenchy and Crystal Noir by Versace? I'm looking for something with tonka bean or vanilla and anise or licorice. I was only ever able to get a 1oz bottle of Jasmin Noir before it went out of stock about a year and a half ago, and I've only got half the bottle left. I don't really trust getting it from Amazon because of perfume counterfeiters being a problem there. Any recommendations are appreciated!
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!
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 have been looking for a perfume with Lily of the Valley notes. I adore Muguet by Fragonard, but the notes are very light. I wanted to try something else that is somewhat stronger lily of the valley. Someone suggested Diorissimo in a perfume shop but, I found it was rather too strong. I'd love to hear anybody's suggestions. Thanks~!
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
Has anyone worn this scent? If so, can you tell me how you like it. It sounds like it would smell great. I have been looking for a scent similar to Bliss Spa and this has some of the same notes. I have been to a couple of Sephora stores and have not see it at either to get a sample. Thanks!!!
I would like to smell elizabeth and james nirvana black and nirvana white perfume and oils. We do not have a store in Duluth, MN that sells this fragerence that I am aware of. Is there anyway to get a hold of samples?
Hey guys! I am curious to know how many of you suffer from the same problem as I do. Certain fragrances, particularly perfumes give me headaches, even migraines. Are certain scents headache triggers for you? If so, what kinds of scents do trigger headaches, and which can you tolerate? For example I can't stay in an Anthropologie store for too long, because their candles give me an instant headache. It is a nice smell, I just can't handle it. In the same way I can't sit next to people with certain perfumes for too long without getting a headache. I have to be careful about smelling perfume samples too, as some are more headache inducing than others. I have found that Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue is headache-proof for me. Some other perfumes that I have don't cause me to have headaches, but if I already have one, they can aggravate it....Light blue doesn't for some strange reason... Do you get headaches from fragrances? Are there any particular brands of perfumes/candles etc that are particularly good/bad for you??
I've been getting accumulating more perfumes lately and really want to display them, however I know that it is a no-no to expose fragrance to sunlight as it accelerates the breakdown of the perfume. I understand that exposure to sunlight is out of the question, but what effect does light from incandescent bulbs have on them? Whenever I read about light exposure, the articles use 'light' and 'sunlight' interchangeably, so I was wondering if the light from bulb would have the same effect on the perfume?
I just got this perfume as gift. last time I checked out the store it said MADE IN USA. The one I received It said Made in Switzerland . I was wondered where this perfume actually made from? Thank you Th
I was going to put some on on Christmas Eve mass when my rollerball fell out of my purse and crashed into a billion shards on my tile kitchen floor. With my kitchen now reeking of Christmas ham and roses I quickly ran to see if I could order another and take advantage of the 250 point bonus. Nope, all sold out. Oh well, my birthday's coming up in a couple of weeks, I'll try then, right? WRONG! I've been looking all over the place for Stella, not just Sephora, and it seems to be out everywhere! Please tell me it's not going away forever. I'd hate to have to sniff my kitchen floor to enjoy it! (And the ham just ruins it anyway)
I am in search of a new fragrance. I would love some recommendations. I usually prefer EDP instead of EDT, and like classic floral scents that lean a little powdery-musky. I like perfumes that will last all day. Some perfumes I have worn in the past include: Versace Bright Crystal, Coach Poppy, Marc Jacobs Daisy, Chanel Chance, Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, Miss Dior, and I am currently wearing Chloe. I have been seriously considering some fragrances in the Burberry line, and Tory Burch, so feedback on those would be helpful as well. Thank you in advance! Here's a few I've ruled out: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina, J'adore Dior, & Gucci Envy me. EDIT: Here are a few others I've ruled out based on trying your recommendations: Dolce by D&G, Flora by Gucci, Stella by Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, Carven Le Perfume, & Versace Yellow Diamond.
