Scented Candle Obsessed! Share your favs :)

Narciso Rodriguez For Her L'Absolu is here!
I can't contain my excitement for the newest addition to Narciso For Her Line: L'Absolu, in a beautiful dark berry bottle! I love For Her EDP in the pink bottle, but used it so much this year- I am probably halfway or 3/4 through...so this is a great replacement!   I thought I was going to have to wait until September to see this launch but thankfully Sephora opened it up to VIB's early!

Decanting a large bottle of perfume into an atomizer?
Hello BTers! Last week, I purchased a large TF fragrance (8.4oz / 250ml) using a 20% off code from Saks online. Unfortunately, they did not and will not provide any kind of atomizer (and pictures online seem to indicate it comes with a funnel). I was just wondering if anyone could recommend some kind of decanting kit / tools, and even any favorite atomizers out there? Thanks!

Need help finding similar scents: Chanel Eau Fraiche
Hey gals! I am SO picky with perfumes. I've smelled hundreds of perfume and only like 3 scents :-(     1) Chanel Eau Fraiche  2) Juliette Has a Gun Anyway 3) Viva La Juicy   My favorite is the Chanel, BUT, it does not linger on me and sits very close to the skin so no one can smell it on me. Are there any similar scents that are strong enough for other to smell and last longer than 20 minutes?! Maybe I missed one in the sniffings....   Thanks for your help!

HALL OF FAMER nhunka / HALL OF FAMER HALL OF FAMER / replied
If you like sickly sweet scents like Viva La Juicy you may like Bonbon by Viktor & Rolf. The bottle is gorgeous too.    see post
I'm looking for an edgier scent that has vanilla and preferably citrus
I'm looking for a scent that has a vanilla base and preferably citrus top notes. Something possibly a bit edgy/rock and roll. I'm a leather jacket wearing, classic rock kind of girl. I hate overly floral/powdery scents. In the past I've worn Hugo Boss Orange, Vera Wang Lovestruck, Dior Hypnotic Poison but I want a change. Any ideas? Thanks! Edit:  Also, I live in Australia and our sephora doesn't stock a lot of the things you guys have listed so I'm primarily interested in designer brand names (example: Prada, Versace, Dior, etc) that would be carried in Myers department store.

Timing a Tom Ford Fragrance Purchase?
Hi, I didn't see a thread to piggy back on - so here goes. I'm trying to time a purchase of a Tom Ford fragrance that unfortunately Sephora doesn't offer. What's the best strategy / channel to make this purchase so as to maximize on some kind of reward or discount (I'm in the U.S. for what it's worth)? Thanks!

Clean scent samples
I had a few of the clean sample vials sitting in my perfume sample jar that I found a way to sort of repurpose.   I liked how they smelled, but I knew I'd never use them as a perfume. After I ran out of febreeze, I poured in one sample vial and filled the empty febreeze bottle with water.  It made the best fabric spray!  I used it on my drapes and rugs. My whole house smelled soooooo clean and fresh!

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.

A lotion or long lasting perfume that smells similar to Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic?
  So I adore this perfume, love it. Issue is it's a toilette and doesn't last longer then maybe three hours or so. I have an all day event that I'm going to and want the scent to last a loooot, or at least maybe an hour or two, longer.    So any recommendations on things that smell similar lotion or fragrance wise?

Tom Ford Private Blend
Hi Sephora, Can you please consider selling the Tom Ford Private Blends line here at Sephora stores in the U.S. or at Sephora.com? I have just bought one and plan to buy another- but can only buy them at my local Nordstrom.

Which Fragrance Prompts Snuggles . . . From Your Children.
I have a pretty large fragrance collection (amassed over nearly thirty years). There is one fragrance in my collection that my little guy (6-years-old) can't get enough of (after the horribly powdery drydown).   Shalimar EDP: http://www.sephora.com/shalimar-eau-de-parfum-P272 652?skuId=1297076   When I'm wearing it he comes up to me, sniffs my neck, let's out that heart melting "little kid sigh," wraps his arms around me, and settles in for a long snuggle.   That has me wondering; what scents do your children love on you?

Change in Black Orchid?
I have been mulling over adding Black Orchid to my fragrance collection for a while.   I had a sample years ago, and it was a sillage and longevity beast (which is something I love). One spray was enough. The scent worked well on me and was delightfully noir. I was going through a Coco phase at the time however, and I never picked it up.   I am finally ready to pull the trigger on it, but in reading some reviews it looks like it may have been reformulated to have much less sillage and longevity.   Can anyone comment on whether or not this is true?

Disappointed in Sephora misrepresentation
I purchased 2 scent kits with scent certificates ONLINE. They have samples to use and a certificate to redeem at a store for one of the fragrances in the kit. I used the samples and went to a store (inside a JCPenny) to redeem the certificate and was told it could only be redeemed at a freestanding Sephora store (not in a JCPenny, not in Canada and not online). I looked online and it does say so in fine print, but I feel like this is a scam. There is not a qualifying Sephora store within 100 miles of the zip code to which they shipped my order. I looked up several other cities and the majority are inside JCPenny stores. I contacted customer service and spent over 30 minutes on hold and speaking with two people with the same refrain - "there is nothing we can do, it needs to be redeemed at a freestanding Sephora store". One of the persons told me to use while on vacation. I feel like they highly misrepresented this product and the company. It should not be sold online if it cannot be redeemed online and there should be a better warning that the company does not back up or support its products company-wide. I have looked at many sites about the company and I will no longer support them with my purchasing money.

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?
