I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we can post our impressions of fragrances we're testing   I finally had a chance to test three of the new Maison Margiela Replicas on my skin! They’re definitely more “niche” and more abstract/challenging than the rest of the Replica line.   Across Sands – Sweet, rich and warm but not overly so. I smelled some oud when I tested this on paper but it was very weak on my skin such that I question if I'm just imagining it. I'd hardly describe it as "daring" or "heady"; actually, I found it comforting more than anything else. The scent of sweet dried dates really comes through. About 15 minutes, there's an almost burnt darkness to it and then it just... deflates. Died down to a skin scent within the hour whereas most perfumes last hours for me.   Soul of the Forest – a wet, resinous, coniferous green that is easily wearable. The opening was fresh, but also a little sour which I found interesting. The incense is very faint. The dry down, by the way, is very rapid . Like Across Sands, it became a skin scent within the hour. Very weak projection.   Dancing on the Moon – the most challenging of the four. To be honest, I was surprized the house went with something that is clearly not going to be a crowd pleaser. This has an intensely indolic white floral character - there’s definitely a faint mothball note for me. It’s also a little powdery; I'm guessing that's the minerality. Much better performance than the other two.   Overall, these were better than I'd anticipated, but they still seemed a little thin/flat to me. Especially AS and SOTF, it's like they just... collapse. If you're looking for niche that's boundary pushing, I'd say try Etat Libre d'Orange which is around the same price point, is more creative and more "filled out."

I have been using this perfume for years; just wanted to try something different but is in the same category (similar notes) Any suggestions? Most perfumes are too pungent or their fragrance leaves my skin in half an hour.

I really love the scent of the Dolce by Dolce&Gabanna but I find that the scent wears off rather quickly. Is there a scent that is similar to it with long staying power?    Thank you!

I've searched high and low and haven't found a dedicated Jo Malone thread, but knowing how many of us enjoy JM products I though it'd be nice to have a place where we can share upcoming news and our favorites.   My all time favorite is Blue Agava and Cacao, followed by Peony Blush Suede. I just picked up Basil and Neroli, which to my nose is a dead ringer for Bobbi Brown Beach! As I love Beach, I think this fragrance is going to be a new fave come the spring. It is different enough from Lime, Basil, Neroli to justify owning both in my collection. Basil and Neroli emphasizes the Neroli while LBM is heavy on the basil and lime, which give it a more herbal edge.

Do you ever try to match your fragrances to your outfits or makeup? Some combos I love to wear:   Etat Libre d'Orange's Like This: A cropped, ultra fuzzy orange mohair sweater and high waisted grey pants with flats. A short, matte manicure. Subtle orange lip and neutral/bronzey eyes. Sock bun.   Nasomatto's Absinthe: a slinky cowl neck deconstructionist top (Maison Martin Margiela) with crisp white shorts and fun heels. Graphic eyeliner and a slash of bright lipstick. Hair straight as a pin. (What's funny is that I would never wear any Replica frags with anything MMM as I don't think they match at all!)   Frederic Malle's Une Fleur de Cassie: a beautifully draping black dress or something ultra-femme. Pretty garters and silk stockings with a back seam. Gold jewelry. Maybe a vintage fur stole. Smoky gold eyes. Hair down, soft waves.   Honestly, I could do this all day...

My mom's favorite perfume is Chanel No 5, but she hasn't had any for a while, so I'm planning on getting her a bottle for Christmas. She wants the "biggest, most economical" bottle available. So should I get the parfum, the eau de parfum, or the eau de toilette, and in what size? Does a bottle of parfum really last long enough to be worth the extra price?
Fragrance
I am wondering that will Sephora sale Nuit de cellophane of Serge Lutens fragrances?
Fragrance
Does anyone know if Maison Margiela REPLICA By The Fireplace will be available as a travel size / rollerball / spray? I know it is one of the three travel sprays in the Masculine Discovery Set, but I'm hoping it will become available as a travel size on its own.

From what I've read on multiple internet sites, Kate Spade's Twirl may have used the following: orange blossom, tiare, watermelon, blackberry, French macaroon, star jasmine, musk, magnolia, and red current.   Thank you!

Does anyone have any idea of when there might be triple points on fragrance?
Fragrance
I'd love to hear what your favourite fragrances are for the fall! Here's a list of what I've been turning to this season:   Papillon's Anubis - intensely smoky and rich oriental with a resinous incense base   Etat Libre d'Orange's Fat Electrician - unexpectedly bitter and smoky vetiver that's balanced with a creamy vanilla   Nasomatto's Black Afgano - burning rubbery, plasticky oud (? the company doesn't list the notes), challenging at first but the dry down is amazing   Tom Ford's Oud Wood - a wearable oud, suitable for all occasions   Ex Idolo's 33 - A rich rose-oud with a metallic, citrus edge

Hi!   Do you know what size perfume corresponds with each of the 15 perfume samples? Since some of them range from 1.0 oz to 1.7 & 3.3 oz within the $119 limit, I'm not sure which applies for all of them.    Thanks!

I've been trying to get a fragrance engraved in store (yonge and eglinton), but am getting different answers when I call in (e.g. one SA said any size can be engraved as long as it's not a round bottle. the other said the fragrance is eligible depending on the brand and eligible size for each brand varies). Has anyone gotten a fragrance engraved at sephora before and if so, what was your experience?   This is the fragrance I wanted engraved:

This is newest scent in blue bottle. I am super excited to get my hands on this fragrance... At this point, it is only available at neiman Marcus, but it is on back order with no date of arrival!! I have to buy this online due to no store within 200+ miles. Will Sephora be getting this? Or does anyone know where I can locate??? Thank you, denise

Hi, I am a HUGE fan of the Laura Mercier fragrance "Crème De Pistache". I noticed it has been out of stock on Sephora's website since last year and have not yet received an email notifying me of it being in stock. Can someone tell me if it's been discontinued or what the story is? I absolutely LOVE this fragrance and will be disappointed If it is no longer produced. Thanks
Fragrance
I have been wearing this fragrance for close to 10 years, but I just repurchased it and it has zero lasting power. I hate give up on it, but I want a fragrance that lasts. I have the shower gel and body lotion as well as the body spray and perfume, but it layering doesn't seem to help it last.  Any suggestions for a dupe or similar fragrance? Also, so as not to limit myself, any favorites that you want to throw out there that are different? I like fresher or musky scents as opposed to overly floral.
