Fragrance Sample Giveaway!
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!

fragrance recommendations?
I'm looking for a new fragrance for a friend. She likes Jean Paul Gaultier and Prada, so are there other similar perfumes that fall along those profiles?

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.

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?

Display Ideas for Fragrance Samples
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?

Q. Hanae Mori perfume sample help please!
Hello! I got a sample of a Hanae Mori perfume a while ago (either 2 or 3 months ago, I would say) and it doesn't say which one it is on the little white spray bottle it came in. It's not on My Purchases either as it appears to have been sent to me in lieu of another sample I asked for. Does anyone have any idea of which one it could be? I found a thread here with a possible answer but it's from a few years back HALP! Thank you! ^_^

letting you in on a treasure i discovered
I went to Austin, TX last week and in this one particular boutique, I came across THE BEST SMELLS EVER. I looked at the price tag $125 and said "ha" and put it down without even looking at the name. Then as the smell began to develop on me I was like "omg I NEED this." I could even smell it on my arm the next morning. I couldn't find the store again, so I went on google and put in every scenario possible: perfume on congress ave, perfume sold in Austin,etc. Finally...after 2 hours...I found it! The line is called "Juliette Has A Gun." EVERY one of them smells amazing. This brand is only sold in 17 stores in the US. South Carolina, FL, Austin, Houston, San Diego, Rhode Island, and NY were the only states that carry it. I ordered the "Try It Kit" on their website for $14. If you decide to purchase a full bottle, they give you the $14 credit toward it. It's got to be done within 2m. I also found them on ebay for around $80. Hope everyone gets to try them out!!! :-)

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!

Question Re. No. 4711 for Scent Lovers
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.
