Is the eau de toilette the same as cologne? I don't want something as concentrated as parfum but usually get cologne.

See by Chloe discontinued?
Has the perfume See by Chloe been completely discontinued? Or is it just not available through Sephora anymore? Couldn't find it on the Chloe website either.

Clean Summer Sun Fragrance and/or Clean Skin Fragrance Questions!
So I've recently become obsessed with fragrances and I know Sephora doesn't currently sell The Clean Summer Sun fragrance, but I know it did in 2015. I was just wondering if any of you had a chance to smell it/test it out and your thoughts on it? I can't seem to find many reviews on it. I want something that's aquatic/fruity and summery. I also am interested in the Clean Skin fragrance for summer/winter and was wondering what people's thoughts on that one are? Is it really musky or more light/airy?   I currently wear black opium for nighttime/evenings, so I'm looking for a more summer/daytime scent. I do enjoy Marc Jacob's Daisy Dream, but it never seems to last one me. I also like Jo Malone's Wild Bluebell. I also enjoy Fresh's Sugar Lychee scent, but again, it doesn't last on my skin. I really wanted to like Armani's Acqua Di Gioia, but it smelled too chemically on my skin and I am trying to stay away from DG Light Blue since I know many people wear it. Let me know your thoughts on those two Clean scents or another other recommendations would be appreciated!

Favourite "Summer" Scent?
With summer coming, I find myself in search of a new summer fragrance.    For summer, I love light, fresh scents that remind me of the beach or the ocean. Giorgio Armani's Acqua di Gioia has been a long time favourite, along with Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue.   This year, I'm looking at Bobbi Brown's Beach, and Maison Martin Margiela Replica Beach Walk.   What are your fave fragrances for summer?

Q: Anyone have trouble with Burberry Rhythm going off a bit?
I've owned several Burberry fragrances for women over the years.  While I'm aware that the ingredients of some perfumes can degrade over time, especially if left in the sunlight, I've never had any trouble with Burberry.  (I keep several different scents in rotation, but I always use them up within about a year or year and a half.)  But, even though the scent was only launched two years ago and my bottle can't be older than that, my Burberry Rhythm seems to have gone off.  It doesn't smell bad, exactly, but it doesn't smell like it used to or like the samples in the store.   Anyone know why?  Have similar trouble?

Where to purchase parfum??
I was wondering if anyone actually owned parfum (most concentrated type of perfume, DIFFERENT from eau de parfum, the second strongest). I think it would be neat to get some and it would make my perfume collection complete, but where does one buy it? Does Sephora carry any?

Keeping fragrance all day.
Hello all! So my obsession with perfumes and body spray has recently skyrocketed! However, I am having trouble finding one that will stay with me for long periods of time. I know its eventually going to wear off but I don't want to over do it in the morning so that i smell good all day. I absolutely love the PARADA but like i said, its just not staying.    Please let me know if there are any tips and/or tricks that i should try or even a brand I should give a shot! Thank you so much!!!

Scent Certificate - Scent not available
I have a scent certificate and really loved trying all of the samples.  I liked the Tom Ford Velvet Orchid and have been told at the Sephora located at Penn Square Mall in OKC that they don't know when they will receive it.  It is not available on-line.  Do you have any suggestions on how to get the 1 oz. Tom Ford Velvet Orchid.

How to get samples
Hello,   I was wondering how can I get samples for fragrances, some of the Sephora stores do not carry all the fragrances that I am looking at, as it is only available online or in specific stores. I tried to email support however got the generic reply to call which I do not like to do, Any suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help and before I get blasted, I am VIB Rouge so not trying to be cheap, it is just when buying a $200 fragrance I would like to be able to sample it and I hope I do not have to call since in my experience with calling I get no help.   Thanks, Baba

Replica Lazy Sunday Morning: Rollerball Any Good??
I'm dying to buy Replica Lazy Sunday Morning but it is out of stock. I think it might be best to start with the rollerball anyway so that I can decide if I want to shell out for the full size.     Is the rollerball still good for this scent? It's such a subtle fragrance that I feel like it needs to be applied sparingly. How can I do this with a rollerball?

Sephora Fragrance Sampler Valentine's Day Promotion - what scent was that? Help plz!
I placed an order a few weeks ago, and inside was an envelope with several fragrance samples. It was a promotion for the Valentine's Day 3x points fragrance deal. There was a Tocca fragrance sample inside that I adored and now want to  purchase, but I have now thrown the sample away and can't remember which one it was. Does anybody remember which one it was, or perhaps have one on hand that they can look at to help me out? Thanks in advance!   (PS I think it was Florence, but I'm not totally sure)

Atelier scents lasting power?
Ok guys I'm really in love with Atelier's description of their scents and the few I've been able to smell IRL.  Since my Sephora doesn't carry many of the scents, I was thinking of getting their sampler pack directly from their website (where they then give you credit for that amount towards a later purchase of a bigger fragrance), but before I committed to what would likely be an expensive addition to my minimal scent collection (I otherwise wear ginger or Bvglari's Black--I can't stand most floral scents and am more of ginger, tea, or other quirky scents) I wanted to know how well it lasted on.   Also, anyone have any other scent suggestions for someone who likes scents with things like: Bergamot, Leather, Rain (naturalish clean scents as opposed to ones that your dryer sheets might come in), Ginger and hates: floral (esp things like rose & lily, I can deal with violet); "hippy" scents (basically if you can find it in incense, I can't wear it or be close to it without dissolving in sneezes, so things like patchouli, frankincense, myrrh, etc.)

What's everyone's experience with buying higher end perfume at places like CVS and Walgreens? Or does anyone have a favorite place for buying perfume at a discount? I have bought my husband Dolce and Gabbana cologne on Groupon before.   I'm looking at Marc Jacobs and Thierry Mugler on Walgreens and CVS right now because they would be around 50% cheaper.   I wasn't sure if these places got older bottles or if they just give better prices.

Fragrance Advice - Hippie without the headshop
Hello all.   I have been hunting for a new scent for FOREVER. I know what I like but can't seem to find a good fit. I love what most people would describe as hippie scents (incense, sandalwood, amber, campfire, patchouli, spice market,  Arabian nights ) but I don't want to smell like a headshop - I work for a conservative company and so I would like a grown up fragrance with the notes that speak to me without getting a call from HR for a drug test.    I like those addictive woods, resins, and warm florals but more often than not find that scents in this family tend to be paired heavily with vanilla - which claws at me. I don't like anything too sweet, powdery or to musky. I do like scents that lean masculine and don't oppose wearing a men's or unisex fragrance.    Right now I am using the Ambre & Santal body wash/lotion by L`Occitane followed by Spanish Amber perfume by Pacifica. The Spanish Amber really speaks my language - but it does not have any sillage or staying power... and I have become 100% scent blind to it after years of use. That said, it is described as:  This modern and mystical blend has warm and resinous Amber notes at its heart, Rosy Geranium and woody Sandalwood in the middle and citrusy Bergamot and Elemi on top.   I have done countless trials at Sephora trying to find the right one to no avail. Some that I have tried without success:  Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Tom Ford Black Orchid Thierry Mugler Alien YSL Black Opium Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Tocca Beauty Cleopatra Juliette Has a Gun - all of them Hermes Eau des Merveilles Michael Kors Sexy Amber Fresh Cannabis Santal   Searching for specific notes has not served me and so I am hoping that my description of what I like/don't like will inspire some suggestions from you all. Thoughts?  TIA!!

Need Help Finding a Fragrance
Hello! I am not looking for anything incredibly specific, I like citrus or fruity fragrances that have warm/musk bases. I don't like overly sweet fragrances (caramel or cotton candy notes give me a headache). Just looking a fruity/citrusy scent that has a warm base to it. If you've ever smelled Into the Wild by Bath and Body Works or CK Euphoria Blossom, that's along the lines of what I'm after. Any ideas? Thank you!
