I looked this up in Search and I couldn't find this topic.... First Perfume?
I was going on Fragrance.com to see if I could grab up some stuff with my 20% coupon.  When doing a search, I came across my first perfume ever!  Love's Baby Soft!!!  I can't believe that it's still kicking around.  Back in the 80's when I had my spiked green/blue hair and goth look perfected, I would never leave home without a little spritz here and there.  I'm kinda shocked that they still sell it.  It was $6.99 a bottle back then now it's apparently gone up to 12.19!  What memories...   So, what was your first perfume?

Celebrity Fragrances
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.

Let's talk candles
Recently I started enjoying lightning up candles at home. Why didn't I realize how great they smell before? I purchased a couple of them from BBW, a couple from Pier 1, and a few from Ross. I really liked the peach smell from BBW So I started looking up candles more, and I was really surprised when I saw a $80 ones. I think I'd never justify a such price for a candle. Who likes candles here? What are your favorite smells, brands, places to buy them?  Please enable me

Opium lovers! Have any of you found a good replacement scent now that YSL's changed the formula?
I've been using Opium for years, as my signature scent.  Since they've changed the formula I've discovered that I am not alone.  You know who you are:  the ones who have been stopped in the supermarket by women who wanted to know what perfume you use.   I can't continue shopping on Ebay for the old formulation.  I've done that once, but as it appears that YSL has bowed to the PETA folk and there is no hope for a return of the original scent, there seems no need to prolong the agony of searching for an increasingly diminishing amount of the product.   I've decided to change as soon as my bottle wears out.  I really have loved using Opium and would like to switch to something that has the same sophisticated yet primeval mix.   Any suggestions?

Body mist?
What is the difference btw a body mist and regular fragrance?  I was just browsing the body shop and came across the fact that the most abundant ingredient is alcohol. wouldn't it then just "fly away?" would you spray it after body lotion? or in what cases would you use a body mist?

Cartier - La Panthere
Am I the only one who looks at this new Carier La Panthere fragrance and can't help myself from saying... Or,  "It's made from real bits of panther, so you know it's good."   Seriously Cartier, I thought it was an April Fools joke. I almost wanna get it just as a jokey conversation piece "Haha look, I have Sex Panther for women" but... that's kinda pricey for a jokey conversation piece.   Unless it's really good! Then I am willing. Anyone smelled it? What's the scent like? What season would you say it's for? Long lasting? Yadda yadda... http://www.sephora.com/la-panthere-P385780

Long lasting scent??
I love Philosophy's Amazing Grace line and it's my usual go-to on a daily basis. My last order from Sephora came with a sample of Marc Jacob's Daisy and I loved it! The only problem with both of these scents is the lasting power....there is none. Can someone please suggest a Spring/Summer scent that smells good AND lasts for longer than an hour or two?? I don't want a perfume that is too "young" as I'm 39 and don't want to smell like a teen. Any help would be great! Thanks so much!

Anyone try these yet? I'm completely and utterly obsessed with the Jazz Club scent. Finally the perfect balance between leather and sweet vanilla/rum for me! I also really love the Funfair Evening scent.   My bf bought Jazz Club for me as a graduation present (getting my Master's Degree), but used my VIB card, so I got an email asking me to review it, so I found out about it hehe.

YSL's Opium
I have been using Opium as my signature scent for many years.  Unfortunately, YSL changed the formula a couple of years ago which smelled almost completely unlike the original perfume.  When I researched the situation, I discovered that there are many women in the world who, like me, have been using Opium almost exclusively for decades.  (Even more interesting to discover is that I am definitely not the only woman who, when wearing it in public, has been asked which perfume I was wearing by other women who loved the fragrance.)  Desperate, I bought a couple of bottles of the original formula on ebay, with the intention of switching to another perfume if YSL stuck with the change.   New reviews of the perfume here on Sephora seem to indicate that perhaps YSL has indeed gone back to the original Opium formula.  Most people would just go to a local mall and use a tester bottle, but the closest mall to my home is 75 miles away.   Is there someone who can enlighten me about this situation?
