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? )
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! Any one out there have any favorites?
I've been looking for the perfect light, floral scent that lasts all day and can't seem to find one. I'm in love with Jo Malone's English Pear and Freesia and Peony and Blush Suede, but neither lasts more than four hours, even when layered together. I really love E&J Nirvana as well, but it doesn't last either The best I've found so far in terms of lasting power and sillage has been Balenciaga Florabotanica, can anyone recommend some slightly sweet florals that don't need reapplication during the day?
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!!! :-)
Hello! I got several free fragrances in my last Sephora order and fell in love with Midnight Fleur by Nest. I wanted to try more of this brand's fragrances without spending a lot of money and noticed that they make a set of five .25 oz mini bottles. Do you (still) sell these? I couldn't find them on the site, but I saw other people's reviews saying they bought them at Sephora. Are they available in-store only? Thank you
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.
I am looking for a clean scent that is still romantic for date nights or my wedding day. I usually go more floral but my fiance usually finds those too powdery so I am looking for something clean, or maybe with some vanilla?
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.
I am 21 and very busy with school, work, and projects. I'm productive, serious, and dorky. My favorite fragrance is Bombshell from Victoria's Secret but wish to add more to my perfume collection. Fragrances I also love are Romance by Ralph Lauren and Lola by Marc Jacobs. Suggestions?
I am about to buy the set online, but I don't want to end up not getting what I want - so does this fragrance certificate that is included here http://www.sephora.com/fragrance-deluxe-sampler-fo r-her-P377033?skuId=1457241 really redeem for a 2.5 oz bottle of Daisy Eau So Fresh? Anybody can confirm it I would be delighted to hear! Thank you pretties!
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::::
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?
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.
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?
