Is anyone else having problems with the pump on the Maison Martin Margiela scents? I only bought mine in May, but the pump, well, doesn't. I get a measly little dribble, not a good spray like when I first got it. Don't know if it's a design flaw or I just got a bad one. Hoping I can find some sort of replacement, because I adore the scent.
Does anyone have any suggestions for fragrances that are similar to these? I live overseas & was looking forward to getting them during my upcoming trip to the States, but cannot find . I'm originally from NYC where there is a Sephora on every block, practically, but currently living in Wellington, NZ - a reasonable price beauty products wasteland - $30 for Maybelline mascaras & +$100 for knock-off fragrances! Really.
What is the Viktor and Rolf Secret Service? I registered for it but it says that it's currently not available in the US but they would keep me on their list. What is it exactly? Is it a discount or reward points club or something?
I want to take a moment and say thanks to Sephora for taking all of our pleas to carry Estée Lauder to heart. I love Tuberose and Gardenia and Sensuous Nude so much, and I am happy I can finally get them with a bit of a discount (during sales and such) through Sephora. Off to generously spritz on some Tuberose and Gardenia just 'cause
Just wanted to pass on the fact that Macy's online (only) now has the following hard-milled bath soaps: Miss Dior and Coco by Chanel! They both smell great, and as someone who prefers the long-lasting nature of soaps, as opposed to body washes, which can "turn" and smell weird, I thought I'd pass this along. Too bad Sephora doesn't cary them. I've also gotten the Miss Dior from Nordstrom's online.
Okay, so I am going bonkers waiting for 2/5 to get here so that I can start ordering my lovely, pretty things. However, in order to quell my itchy trigger finger (seriously, my cart icon is mocking me, taunting me with the 5 items that are just sitting there waiting to come home...) wait, where was I? Ah yes, how did I sate my need to buy some perfume but not feel like I am wasting the chance to earn 3X points? Simple, buy some perfume that Sephora doesn't carry! Harvey Prince: direct from their website, right now if you use the code TRYAGELESS you can get a sample of the fragrance Ageless for free,but you do have to pay for shipping ($6.50) I also shopped on Birchbox and picked up a rollerball of the newest Harvey Prince fragrance Journey for $16 using some of my saved points. Ah, new perfume coming my way, it's a good day
Has anyone tried the different hanae mori butterfly formulations and have a clear favorite? Love the scent but can't decide between Parfum, EDP and EDT! Any noticeable difference in silage or longevity?
I really hope I'm aloud to ask this I didn't have time to check the rules....if not let me know and I'll take it down. now I've been trying to find a 100pt perk I could get my boyfriend so he will have something from me to open on Christmas Day since his Christmas gift is Texan tickets for the 22nd (no hate on the texans please) is is anyone willing to sell or trade there gucci mini???
Will Sephora ever carry the Extrait de Parfum for Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb? I would rather spend the $350 here than at Nordstrom. http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/viktor-rolf-flowerbomb -extrait-de-parfum/3238377?origin=category-persona ...
So, during Black Friday/Cyber Monday I decided to broaden my fragrance horizons and ordered from Kiehl's and C.O. Bigelow. Kiehl's: Patchouli and Fresh Rose. More rose than patchouli (I dare say I don't detect the patchouli at all), it is a safe floral, not offensive or overpowering but linear as can be. The definition of a simple, pretty, straight up rose that t least doesn't smell very chemically or fake once it's blended into your skin. C.O.Bigelow: Amber oil. A dark scent, almost medicinal but very wearable if mixed with a musky scent, warms things up in a way that immediately invokes thoughts of a night by the fireplace. C.O. Bigelow: Musk oil. WOWZERS! Oh my stars, this is the skin scent I have been searching for all this time! It smells like you just took a shower with fragrance free soap, so all you smell is clean, fresh, glorious humanity. It is such an intimate yet accessible scent, I find myself smelling my wrist over and over and feeling immediately relaxed and happy. C.O. Bigelow: Patchouli oil. It's patchouli alright, great for layering with other fragrances to automatically up the mystique of ant simple perfume.
Just saw that there is a big sale on some great fragrances on Gilt today! Brands like D&G, Versace, Gucci, Bulgari, and Lanvin Have fun ladies! Oh, if anyone is new to Gilt, there is a holiday promotion where if you are referred to Gilt you and the refer will get a $30 account credit after you make a purchase. So, ask your friends for an invite! Or, if you don't know anyone, you can always PM me your email
Hey guys, new here and I hope you guys can help me out! so I heard about this scent & music fragrance line (fragrances that are inspired by specific songs) through Lucky Mag and I think all three fragrances sound amazing, but I'm hesitant to buy before smelling (ie, i'm terrible at making decisions). Has anyone tried these before and can recommend? How strong is it/does it last? It's called Pavane and there are three scents - the brand is called Gwendolyn-Mary. They aren't in stores in my state or else I'd try there
I've been dying to try Tom Ford's new fragrance collection - Atelier d’Orient Collection...hoping someone nice at Neiman Marcus will hook me up with samples. The price is steep - just wondering if anyone has tried them yet?
My mom ordered the Gucci perfume and it just arrived today! I LOVE the smell SO much! The only place we could find it, that was available to America was Amazon. The last time we were able to get it was when we lived in France. So many memories locked up in the smell of that perfume . I just wanted to say this because a little bit ago I did a post asking for help to find this perfume, just wanted to give feedback. Also if anyone likes the original Gucci sometime you should try Gucci Eau de Parfume 2.
I was looking around for pretty flower scents, and someone said they saw Perfumer Paul Kiler of PK Perfumes at the Malibu Wine and Beer festival last weekend, and she said that she swooned over the BEEYOUTEEFUL Perfume called "Carissa" from the PK Perfumes line.
It's supposed to have a sheer Rose, Tuberose, and the Carissa flower.
But I was curious if anybody else out there knew anything about the line of PK Perfumes, or about Carissa. I think it's a new house, and new perfumes, but he's been at a few shows around Los Angeles and San Francisco, I think...
Thanks for any ideas or experience... Crystal Sea
Hi, I want to buy this fragrance sampler but before I do, I want to know the sizes of "full size bottle" for which you can redeem the certificate. I know they are usually 1 oz or 1.7 oz but I will like to know the specific size of each of the 6 full size bottles. I tried calling customer service but they didn't know and I tried going to a store but they basically told me I wouldn't know until I purchased the sampler. Can someone please help me? Thank you so much, Heath
Hi everyone! I’m always on the hunt for a great, new perfume. I am looking for perfumes that you think are worth checking out based on some of the ones that are some of my favorites: - Viktor & Rolf- Flowerbomb - Gucci- Premiere - Ralph Lauren- Ralph - Escada- Magnetism - Guess by Marciano- Guess - Burberry- The Beat - Gucci- Eau de Parfum II Thanks so much!
I'm looking for a replacement for the now-discontinued Miss Dior Cherie L'eau. I find the regular Miss Dior Cherie (now called Miss Dior Eau de Parfum, I think) and the Eau Fraiche versions to be overwhelming--I think the tuberose note is far too strong, and they both give me headaches. But these are the only two fragrances that I have seen suggested as replacements for Miss Dior Cherie L'eau. Any suggestions for a light but sophisticated floral that is similar to Miss Dior Cherie L'eau?
So, I just went through my small bag of sample size perfumes. Let just say I found a new love interest in Versace. I have both the Bright Crystal and Vanitas. Now I can't decide which one I should get. Which one would you guys recommend? Their scents are pretty much on both end of the spectrum. For me Vanitas has a more warm scent to it; while Bright Crystal is fresh and bright.
