My mom is absolutely in love with Chanel's Coco mademoiselle fragrance. I really want to buy it for her but the smallest size is over $60 and that is simply not something I can afford right now. So I was wondering if anyone has come across a fragrance that smells very similar to it? She is not someone who chases the most expensive brands, she is happy with simplicity.
Hey all, im trying to find a good perfume for my girlfriend. I was confused between Lady million and Nirvana Black/white. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Umm im not sure what details to give you guys so u can better decide but she really is mysterious and sensual and pretty and lives in BC (incase weather matters) and shes 20 years old. Can anyone suggest a perfume within 100 dollars or choose among the ones mentioned pleaseeee?
Ok so the credit here goes to bombshell for starting the palette parade - I am just loving the idea of rotating a palette every week. Thanks girl!!! The same idea applies to my perfume stash as I looked and haven't touched some of them in quite some time. I have a rollerball drawer that some get pushed down to the bottom and never get love, so here is their chance! <3 So if you have a ton of scents and want to join in post your collection and put one up for starters! I am going to place mine beside my palette of the week so I will not cheat lol. I will post my list up in just a little bit. Weekends can be cheat days or you can do like I am and start in on my ever intimidating pile of sample vials.
I have way too many perfumes and I think the oldest is probably 6 years old. I still wear it from time to time but I wonder if perfume goes bad or expires. I keep them on a shelf in my closet away from direct sunlight and moisture. Have you ever had a perfume go bad on you? What's the oldest perfume you own?
Do any of you have a strong reaction, either for or against, celebrity fragrances? I don't know what it is, and it doesn't matter if I love the celebrity or despise them, I just can't wrap my head around it. I'm sure I am missing out on some great smelling scents as a result of this, and I know it is narrow-minded, but with so many fragrances out there to try, the whole celebrity thing just puts those at the bottom of my list. Are there any that you think are a must try? Sidebar: I was at my local TJ Maxx and I noticed they had TONS of celebrity fragrances available. It got me wondering if other retailers are just having too much difficulty moving them off the shelves.
I was at a SiJCP yesterday and I found this perfume. When I worked at Claire's we sold a Hello Kitty perfume that smelled just like this! I haven't been able to find anything like it in years and pretty much everything is out of stock. Ulta has it, but I would rather purchase it at Sephora. Does anyone know?
I'm going to get my first bottle of Jo Malone Fragrances. Which Jo Malone fragrance is on your must-have list? Please share! I narrowed down my choice to the following: Red Roses Nectarine Blossom & Honey Wild Bluebell English pear & Freesia Blackberry & Bay Also, any fragrance combining ideas? Thank you!
I bought both Elizabeth and James Nirvana rollerballs. I used them twice and they seem almost empty. There's no way to tell for sure due to the opaque packaging. Do you think I should try to return them?
So yesterday do to lack of coverage I got pulled to work cosmetics instead of pharmacy, well I had a customer looking for a fragrance that she saw on her coworkers desk. She described it as a tall clear maybe white bottle with the letters G W on it. We didn't have it but it has me curious to know what it is! Any ideas?
I am not familiar with the CLEAN brand and I don't know if there are any lovers of the brand on Sephora. But I just wanted to give heads up that I went today and there was a 500 pt perk, it included 2 perfume one was in a pink bottle, the other in a blue and it had the matching lotions.
I'm one of those gals that are obsessed with fragrances and have about around 50 60 and still collecting...(if you want to call it that.) So I would like to know what are you wearing today? I'm wearing Obsession...(hahaha kinda fits this thread, doesn't it? )
Hi ladies. I hear people talk about doing fragrance swaps, and I was just wondering if anyone has done this and what boards do you use to post that you have something available of are seeking something in particular? Anyone have experience with this?
My fragrance has been discontinued but, I saw it coming so I have 10+ bottles. I am very sensitive to most so when I find one that works I don't stray. Any advice on ways to keep it "fresh"? At this point I have it stored in a cabinet that receives no sunlight but it is in a very large bathroom. Any and all advice is appreciated, Thanks!
I am bored with my current perfumes! I currently wear forever red by bath and bodyworks and body by victoria from Victoria's secret. I like scents that are sweet like candy or floral. Does anyone have a recommendation for a new scent to try?
So recently I posted up a thread about perfume primer which was taken down because of a link. Anyway, there is this thing called a Perfume Primer that makes your perfume last longer. People asked me about where I heard of this and I would say its an article on Total Beauty. Before giving your opinion on this you should really read the article first because it have more information.
In the past when I'd shop at BBW I would always get the complete set of each scent (mist, lotion, gel, body cream, even the travel sizes) So do you ladies do the same with the higher end perfumes? Just wondering if it's worth spending money on all the extras or just use that money to buy more perfumes
A couple of weeks back I bought COACH Poppy Freesia Blossom, and honestly this perfume is great but at the end of the day there's just no lasting smell. I've never experienced perfumes like that before. So I decided to go in another direction... I would really appreciate it someone can tell me which perfume out of these two options are the BEST! they're both MARC JACOBS : -DAISY OR -DAISY EAU SO FRESH? Much appreciated if you answer :-)
It was suggested that you store perfume in a drawer or cool dark place. The bottles are way too pretty to keep them hidden. I like to keep mine displayed on a glass tray near my makeup table. Am I shortening the shelf life?
Do any of you wear perfumes that your partner/kids/coworkers do not like? I'm trying to be strong and to keep/wear the perfumes that I personally like, but find that I shy away from a favorite after a negative comment. For example, I've come to really like Dior Hypnotic Poison, but my partner does not like it Yes, I wear lighter skin scents such as Nest dahlia and vines, which is unoffensive fresh and floral, but I want my Poison too!!! What scent do you wear that you love but others do not like?
I was recently introduced to Diptyque. As much as I love the overall concept of the brand, my local counter is extremely, they only have testers for 3-4 perfume and no SA either. If any of you has tried the brand before, please do share your favourite scent with me, so I will have a better idea next time I go visit the counter! Thank you so much everyone!
I have been wearing Flash for a couple of days, loving the fruity but NOT overly sweet scent, and even though it's not listed in the notes I swear I smell anise/licorice. Then it hit me why this seemingly unique scent felt so familiar, it is a dupe for Diesel Loverdose, at least to my nose. I am so happy that I have found a perfume that brings an old favorite back to life. Have any newly released fragrances resurrected a long lost perfume you thought you'd lost forever? Happy Valentine's Day to all the perfumophiles out there!
