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!
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!
I would like use my flowerbomb samples to refill the small travel size bottle that came with a little funnel but I don't know how. Can you remove the spray tops or do you just keep spraying into the funnel until the vial is empty? Thank You for your help!
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. Nordstrom is getting my business instead of Sephora...;( Fans: if you agree, please post that you want these private blends too! Given that they are so expensive, I plan to buy only 1-2 per year, but still, they would sell!
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? Its base notes are: M andarin orange, basil, green tea, amber.
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?
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?
** Closed ** I've seen so much generosity on BT lately and I want to keep the good vibes going! This weekend I went through my sample stash and discovered I had way too many fragrance samples. I'm planning to giveaway 4 fragrance sample boxes; 1. Tom Ford Velvet Orchid, 2. Chloe, 3. Burberry (My Burberry & Brit Rhythm), 4. Mixed box (Versace Yellow Diamond, Versace Bright Crystal, Dior Jadore, Thierry Mugler Alien...to name a few). The rules are easy. US only. Respond to this post and indicate the box you'd like. Since we're getting into the hot summer season, include your favorite summertime drink! Mine is Peach Lemonade! I'll tally on Thursday 05/28 after 8pm EST and announce the winners on Friday 05/29! Have fun!
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.
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.
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?
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?
A friend recently bought the Juicy Couture's Viva la Juicy perfume and received the Juicy tote bag with it. She's not liking the perfume much though and would like to return it. Does she have to return the tote with it as well?
Helllooooo~ i recently ordered a cologne and its been over 24 hours and was wondering why i got 2x the points rather than 3x? is there anyone who is in the same position or know why? thanks! Spoiler (Highlight to read)
In some of my very recent sephora orders there were the fragance sampler cards set and one of them was a tocca. I liked it but at the time i didnt realize that there were so many different names. Does anyone know which one it was?
I have been loving Nirvana Black all winter long (literally obsessed), but it's time to switch to a new spring scent. What's a scent that has similar notes to Nirvana Black but would be a bit lighter for the season? I do not like Nirvana White. Way too floral for me.
Hey beauty lovers now that Sephora has started their 3x the points on perfumes till may 10 wanted to find what perfumes you guys picked up or are looking to get. currently I've been loving YSL's black opium and really want the full size but what else would you guys recommend?
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.
I just received an envelope (with my order) with perfume samples. I loved the Stella McCartney sample and would like to order it. However, I do not know which scent this was of hers. If anyone could help me, I would be very greatful.
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
