Fragrance Samples/Rewards
For the first time today I noticed there was a tab under "weekly specials" that links to free gifts with fragrance purchases.  Some cute totes and other products with select fragrance purchases.  Wanted to point it out in case you missed it, like I did.

Marc Jacobs Mod Noir Fragrance
I was recently chosen to receive and review the newest Marc Jacobs fragrance, Mod Noir. I came into work today to the lovely surprise package.    Here is a little bit more info on the perfume itself before I get into my thoughts on it.   **Copied from the product page: " A modern return to the classic note of intoxicating gardenia, Marc Jacobs Mod Noir elevates a signature scent into a contemporary sphere. The airy floral fragrance opens with a field of lush, dewy greens, which give way to freshly cut gardenias floating atop sparkling water. Creamy musks leave a sensual dry down on the skin. The striking bottle was inspired by Marc Jacobs’s quirky, striped fashion prints and the interplay of black and white in his iconic runway collections. Bold elements cleverly juxtapose classic and modern styles. The bottle’s linear black and white stripes contrast with its circular shape, and the shiny lacquer opposes the matte frosted finish. Notes: Greens, Gardenia, Creamy Musks. Style: Bold. Modern. Unique."   Link to product:  http://www.sephora.com/mod-noir-P395917?skuId=1709 856#pdp-reviews   My first thoughts:  1. The bottle itself is cutely chic. To me it's very different than the usual MJ bottles, I still really like it 2. The fragrance is light and floral, but still manages to stay fresh. I absolutely love all of MJ's scents and this has not disapointed me at all. It is actually something I would buy for myself. It's perfect for spring & summer   I'll come back with a more in depth review on it once I've worn it a couple of times.    If there is anything else you would like to know please feel free to ask below Has anyone else gotten the chance to try this perfume out? What are your thoughts on it?     *Sorry if this review is a little scattered. It's my first time reviewing something like this. I know there is usually a lot of up roar and anger when not everyone get these gifts but please try to be polite on this thread, I'm very lucky to have been chosen as an active member of BT.   **Also disclosing the fact that this was a gift from Sephora and Marc Jacobs.

fragrance recommendations?
I'm looking for a new fragrance for a friend. She likes Jean Paul Gaultier and Prada, so are there other similar perfumes that fall along those profiles?

Fragrance matching?
I wonder if anyone here has had a great experience having a scent recreated for them?   My favourite fragrance ever was retired a few years ago.  I managed to score an unopened sample that they found in a drawer and sent me (for free!  so nice of them).  I'd like to have it matched but don't really know where to start.  There are a few online sites that offer matching but I'd have to send them my whole sample so I don't know who to trust.   Any experience or advice to offer?

Display Ideas for Fragrance Samples
Hi, All!    I'm looking for some creative advice for displaying those little fragrance sample vials.     Right now, I've got them stored upright in a shoebox, but I don't see everything that I have unless I pull them out one by one to read what they are before deciding which to try out for the day.     I'd like to be able to store them on the counter, but with their names easily visible.  (I was thinking of those vinyl bags with pockets, but they go over the door, which is where my long mirror hangs, so I don't want to cover it up. Therefore, the counter it is.)     Any suggestions?

Spring alternative to Nirvana Black?

Question Re. No. 4711 for Scent Lovers
Hi, Scent Lovers!  My Mom loves No. 4711.  What scents, if any, are similar to 4711?  I'm not looking for a dupe, but I would like to stay in the same scent family.   This is how the fragrance is described:   The precious ingredients are carefully harmonised. Bergamot, lemon, and orange provide a uniquely revitalising effect. Lavender and rosemary have a calming and relaxing effect, strengthening the nerves. Neroli, extracted from the blossom of the bitter orange, has a calming effect in the base note, creating a positive mood.

No longer carrying Coach?
I was looking to purchase a bottle of Love Coach as my last buy of the sale because I noticed that it was in the sale section last week and I really like the scent, but it's gone. I tried searching under the brand Coach but there's only 1 thing under the tab and its on sale. Is sephora no longer carrying Coach? I kind of wish I had bought the perfume earlier if I had known it would be gone so quickly

Q. Hanae Mori perfume sample help please!
Hello! I got a sample of a Hanae Mori perfume a while ago (either 2 or 3 months ago, I would say) and it doesn't say which one it is on the little white spray bottle it came in. It's not on My Purchases either as it appears to have been sent to me in lieu of another sample I asked for. Does anyone have any idea of which one it could be? I found a thread here with a possible answer but it's from a few years back HALP! Thank you! ^_^

WTB Guerlain Insolence EDT
Several years ago Sephora carried Guerlain's Insolence and My Insolence EDT.   Since Sephora stopped carrying Insolence, I've not been able to find it.  I've checked NM, Saks, Bloomingdales, Nordstroms to no avail.  From what I can tell (inferences made from Guerlain.com's produce page on Insolence) the fragrance has not been discontinued.     Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I may purchase a new bottle?  I do not trust Amazon, eBay, Fragrance Overstock, et al, websites because the product cannot be guaranteed authentic and unspoiled.    Thank you.

I was wearing my Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet the other day not that it is "spring" ( I live in NYC and it is still in the 30s here ) and I was just so in love with the sweet flowery scent.

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess or Guerlain Terracotta?
I'm struggling to decide if I need both of these fragrances. I just learned about them as I've been living under a rock obviously. I love beachy, tropical, coconutty scents.  A little bit of floral is fine, as long as it's not an overwhelming note.    As Terracotta has been re-released, I'm thinking I should jump on it. But do I need Bronze Goddess as well? I'm wondering how similar they are. Thanks for any guidance.
