Does the limited perfume sampler voucher inside have a expiration date?
Hi,  I am really interested in the Sephora favorites bottled dreams perfume and I just wanted to know that does the voucher inside for a free full-size bottle have an expiration date? I do not live near a sephora so i'll have to wait until i can go to one to get my favorite perfume from the voucher provided inside

LaVanilla perfumes
Are LaVanilla perfumes being discontinued? I went to a Sephora in Calgary, Alberta and I was told by an SA that they only had the deodorants now and she wasn't sure whether or not the line was being discontinued with Sephora entirely or if it would be available online only.

Anyone try Tauer or Tauerville fragrances?
The first are the original Andy Tauer line including Rose de Kandahar and Le Air du Desert Morocain, and from Tauerville the Vanilla and Rose.   Worth they hype?  Best scent? Thanks!

It smells kind of ... old? i dont know how to describe it. I was something clean and fresh but something for a 22 year old that can be my signature scent. Any suggestions?? please help!!

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.

Spring Scents
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. I was in a happy mood all day just because of that!     What's your favorite spring perfume?!    As I said, I am wearing Blooming Bouquet but I also love Chloe Love Story. I guess I like flowery scents!

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.

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.

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.

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet bottle
Hi beauties,   I am looking to purchase the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet EDT and I actually don't use perfumes much but this one smells nice and i'm addicted to the bottle. I know the 100ml bottle has the silver bow on it, does the 50ml bottle have the silver bow as well? I've seen ones with clear bow (which doesn't look as nice) and in that case I would purchase the 100ml. I really want the silver bow on it and I would hate to open the 50ml and see that it has the clear bow and I'm stuck with the bottle.... Thanks for your help!

Hello everyone! I am in college and seeking a fragrance for the winter-spring transition. It would be lovely if you could suggest a scent that has good longevity (over 5 hours), sillage that is not too overbearing, and is not too common or overused among college students. Thank you!

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Fragrances!
Hi, everyone!   I was out looking to treat myself at the mall for my last childless birthday yesterday when I came across a display of Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria fragrances in Nordstrom. Do any ladies here have any of these fragrances in their stash? I took a whiff of them all and right now my favorites for spring are Herba Fresca, Mandarine Basilic, and Pamplelune. Can anyone give me any insight on the lasting power of these Eau de Toilettes? They all smell so fresh and springy and delightful that I'm just excited to get my hands on one, but I'd like to know what to expect before pulling the trigger.   Thanks, ladies and gents!

Any other women fancy male fragrances??
So I was looking at my fragrance collection the other day and while this isn't exactly news  to me...I was just realizing that I overwhelmingly gravitate towards male fragrances. But there's a specific kind of male fragrance that I like...not those fresh, sporty scents (my husband likes those). I like the ones that I can only describe as woody, earthy, musky and spicy. Some of the male fragrances I wear are:    Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb (ha! I actually had a Flowerbomb mini and gave it away) Tom Ford Grey Vetiver  Terre D'Hermes  Maison Martin Margiela 'Replica' Jazz Club   Any other ladies out there gravitate towards male fragrances? If so, which ones?

Please help me find a replacement for Philosophy Amazing Grace Fine Perfume!
I've worn Amazing Grace for years, but every time Philosophy sells the scent changes. The fine perfume version was the closest thing I could find to the original scent I fell in love with but now it's gone. Almost every scent I try is too fruity or too green and I get an instant headache. I'm heartbroken to not have a fragrance and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Tom Ford Private Blends
I'm looking into buying one of the TF private blends, but there's not a single location (Sephora or otherwise) that carries them, even within 150km, for me to test out before I commit. And Tom Ford's website doesn't give out samples... and even if they did, they don't ship to Canada. Since they're almost $250CAD each for the smallest size, I don't want to buy them all in one go.
