Why is there no voucher for Canadians (Bottled Dreams sampler)?
I see that there are fragrance samplers available in the US with vouchers for a full-size fragrance. Why is the SAME sampler set available in Canada with no voucher??

YOUR SCENT / YOUR COLLECTION
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

Q. What are the diferences between fragrance concentrations?
There's Parfume, Toilette, Vaporisateur, Cologne and oil. And then there's 'eau de' what does that mean?   I always look for the 'parfume' but some only come in EDT (at least Sephora online). And then some have a huge price difference between them.   I am looking to purchase a scent that when I apply it in the morning it'll still be there eve/night. I don't want it to be overpowering at first when applied and then ther's no scent by the arternoon.       Edited: I can't firgure how to reply to comments.   I googled this as well and found not much info like you BTers gave here. Thank you. Now I have always purchased the 'parfume' version but was wondering if I'll be disapointed with the 'toilet' version? Will it be too 'watered down' and not have a long lasting smelled?

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!

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!!! :-)

Looking for a signature perfume.
I have tried a lot of perfumes but I haven't found the one for me. I like perfume that has sandalwood in it, I'm looking for a perfume similar to bath and body works fragrance mist called country chic. So far I liked see by Chloe, chloe by Chloe, viva la juicy by juicy couture. But I don't think they are the one for me. So I'm looking for that perfume that represents me.

Is it just me or Flowerbomb smells exactly the same on everybody?
I was at Sephora a few weeks ago, sampling Flowerbomb. I was waiting for the VIB sale to buy a big bottle of it! A SA asked me if I was wearing Flowerbomb. She mentioned how she thought it smells the same on everybody. And she made me realize something. It's true, I can recognize the scent from a mile away. I love it, but do I want to smell like everybody else? So anyway, she suggested Miss Dior, which I tried the next time, and OMG! I'm in love! I removed Flowerbomb from my wish list and replaced it with Miss Dior (so much cheaper anyway!).   Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Flowerbomb. I even bought the small refillable bottle. I just realized I want something more unique. Something that will blend with my skin and hair and become my own *signature (I hate that word!) scent.   True story. What do you think?

Hello, I just bought a full size fragrance and I was wondering if it was possible to use the small sample bottles you get for sephora for easy transportation? I'm sure it's possible since the employees transfer it from the full size bottle but I never looked hard enough to see how they actual do it without wasting a ton. Thanks in advance.

Perfume similar to Soap & Glory's Fruitigo scent (Butter Yourself, Pulp Friction, Foam Call)?
I am obsessed with the scrub, body wash, and lotion by Soap & Glory with their "Fruitigo" scent! I only wish they had a perfume or body mist with the scent as well so the scent would last all day. Has anyone tried this line and have any recommendations for a perfume that smells similar or would complement them well?!

Perfumes- every last drop counts
For some reason, I can't bring myself to toss out a bottle of perfume when there are some 'literally' drops left! I pivot and turn the bottle at every conceivable angle to spray out what's possible. The rests it's in there until either has dusted up so I don't want to bother saving it or it actually vaporizes away.   Am I the only one that does this? Or does anyone have any tricks to get that last bit out?

Fall/Winter Fragrance??
I am searching for a new fragrance for the autumn and upcoming winter months. Some fragrances I like in general include Falling in Love by Philosophy, Glamorous by Ralph Lauren (now discontinued), Nicole by Nicole Richie, Honey by Marc Jacobs, Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren Blue, Angel by Thierry Mugler, Stella by Tocca, Pretty by Elizabeth Arden, Bath & Body Works Sensual Amber Parfum, Carolina Hererra 212 Sexy… to name a few.   I want something warm and sexy, but also unique and somewhat bold. I sampled Donna Karan Cashmere Mist and found it to be too powdery. I also tried Giorgio Armani Sí and liked it initially but it wore off fast. I also want something a little more bold and a bit different than those I've named above but while staying true to my fragrance "profile". Something sexy, seductive, and sophisticated. What do you recommend? Thanks :-)

As summer starts to fade and cooler weather is just around the corner, I have put away my sweet smelling scents in search of a spicier option. I have been LOVING the Nest: White Sandalwood lately. Can't get enough of this fragrance! It's earthy, spicy and a bit powdery. Very fresh and it's been my "go-to" for the past two weeks. This is my first Nest purchase and I can't wait to try another!
