Any other women fancy male fragrances??
So I was looking at my fragrance collection the other day and while this isn't exactly news  to me...I was just realizing that I overwhelmingly gravitate towards male fragrances. But there's a specific kind of male fragrance that I like...not those fresh, sporty scents (my husband likes those). I like the ones that I can only describe as woody, earthy, musky and spicy. Some of the male fragrances I wear are:    Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb (ha! I actually had a Flowerbomb mini and gave it away) Tom Ford Grey Vetiver  Terre D'Hermes  Maison Martin Margiela 'Replica' Jazz Club   Any other ladies out there gravitate towards male fragrances? If so, which ones?

Please help me find a replacement for Philosophy Amazing Grace Fine Perfume!
I've worn Amazing Grace for years, but every time Philosophy sells the scent changes. The fine perfume version was the closest thing I could find to the original scent I fell in love with but now it's gone. Almost every scent I try is too fruity or too green and I get an instant headache. I'm heartbroken to not have a fragrance and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Tom Ford Private Blends
I'm looking into buying one of the TF private blends, but there's not a single location (Sephora or otherwise) that carries them, even within 150km, for me to test out before I commit. And Tom Ford's website doesn't give out samples... and even if they did, they don't ship to Canada. Since they're almost $250CAD each for the smallest size, I don't want to buy them all in one go. Does anyone have  any idea how I can sniff a few or get a hold of legit samples (I don't trust ebay) before I take the plunge?   Here are the ones I'm considering:   http://www.sephora.com/cafe-rose-P393157?skuId=148 0680 http://www.sephora.com/rive-d-ambre-P393161?skuId= 1565662 http://www.sephora.com/jasmin-rouge-P393141?skuId= 1449115 http://www.sephora.com/shanghai-lily-P393155?skuId =1565696 http://www.sephora.com/champaca-absolute-P393139?s kuId=1449099 http://www.sephora.com/plum-japonais-P393145?skuId =1565688 http://www.sephora.com/santal-blush-P393159?skuId= 1449263

How many people like CHANEL No. 5?
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?

Sad day for Chloe
I ordered the Chloe perfume online during the 3x the points event, and it finally came today in the mail! Unfortunately, when I opened the beautiful box, I was met with a sad and broken bottle of Chloe. Half of it had leaked out, the rest was in the bottle but the pump was completely goo-ed shut. It just makes me so sad to see such a beautiful (and expensive) perfume go to waste (will be returning, obviously). Wish it had been packaged better so I don't have to deal with replacing it.

Perfume for work? Thoughts? All ok or not?
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!

Serge Lutens Junkies, I Need Your Shopping Suggestions Please
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!

Lavanila perfume losing potency?
I've been wearing Lavanila Pure Vanilla since last summer or so, and I absolutely love the scent. However, I'm wondering if my bottle of perfume is losing potency. I know that over time we become immune to scents that we smell frequently, so I've taken care not to put on more so that I don't overdue it. But before when I'd get whiffs of it regularly, now it seems to be totally gone within a couple of hours, and I used to get soooo many compliments on it (just from walking by strangers), whereas now no one really comments on it, or someone has to get super close before they notice.   Is it possible my bottle of perfume has lost its potency? I know light can affect fragrance, but the bottle lives in my windowless bathroom, and aside from the hour each day I'm in that room it's completely dark otherwise. Has anyone else experienced this? Do perfumes die off?

Bought my first Jo Malone, need layering ideas
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!
