Recently visited Les Senteurs (London UK) and they had the most lovely staff! They were so knowledgeable about perfume and offered three complimentary samples based on a fragrance "fitting." They understood my taste right away, unlike so many SAs who typecast me based on my appearance and try to offer me pretty (boring) florals and tame, fresh scents despite my insistence to the contrary. Unfortunately, I'd already bought the perfume I wanted from a department store before visiting LS... how I wish I'd held off and just purchased it from them! Anyways, I thought it might be nice to show some love to people in small shops with an in depth knowledge of their products and a genuine love for them. Any specialists/retailers that readers here would like to recommend?
I finally opened my 100 point Marc Jacobs Mod Noir (rip off for 100 points...but...whatever). To me it smells exactly like DVF Tatiana...which brings back memories. Kerosene Dirty Flower Factory smells like the lilac bushes my grandparents had...but lilac isn't in the scent notes at all. What scents bring back memories and what are they. A few scents I've dumped, even though I loved them, because the related memories weren't ones I wanted to hold on to.
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?
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.
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!
I was binge shopping perfumes last weekend and found this collection called ROADS. The shop owner mentioned the "nose" behind the scent is Danielle Ryan. It is interesting because she is part of the RyanAir family. I thought that was cool. I smelled a few and they were amazing! I especially love Neon and Cloud 9. I didn't commit to buying anything because I was already making a purchase, but I will be going back... Anyone else have comments on this line?
Hi all, I've been interested in these since they were released online, but since they aren't available in store to test, I've been hesitant to buy. I got samples of Green and Red from Lucky Scent, and I don't think they are right for me (Green comes off very masculine on me and Red, I can't put my finger on it, but I don't love it) Has anyone purchased Play Black? What do you think of it? The notes described are right up my alley, but I'm wondering how it wears. I noticed when I sampled Green and Red, they both smelled lovely on application, but faded quite quickly (3 hours later, almost completely gone) Thanks!
I just noticed these…and many of the scents are limited with only a few left and no reviews (but someone is buying them). Anyone tried any of them? They sound amazing…unisex…but very pricey. I'd love some input from anyone who has tried them!!! Thanks. http://www.sephora.com/wonderwood-P390206?icid2=comme_des_garcons_wonderwood_carousel_P390206_link
I am obsessed with the scrub, body wash, and lotion by Soap & Glory with their "Fruitigo" scent! I only wish they had a perfume or body mist with the scent as well so the scent would last all day. Has anyone tried this line and have any recommendations for a perfume that smells similar or would complement them well?!

Is anyone else having problems with the pump on the Maison Martin Margiela scents? I only bought mine in May, but the pump, well, doesn't. I get a measly little dribble, not a good spray like when I first got it. Don't know if it's a design flaw or I just got a bad one. Hoping I can find some sort of replacement, because I adore the scent.
Does anyone have any suggestions for fragrances that are similar to these? I live overseas & was looking forward to getting them during my upcoming trip to the States, but cannot find . I'm originally from NYC where there is a Sephora on every block, practically, but currently living in Wellington, NZ - a reasonable price beauty products wasteland - $30 for Maybelline mascaras & +$100 for knock-off fragrances! Really.
What is the Viktor and Rolf Secret Service? I registered for it but it says that it's currently not available in the US but they would keep me on their list. What is it exactly? Is it a discount or reward points club or something?
I want to take a moment and say thanks to Sephora for taking all of our pleas to carry Estée Lauder to heart. I love Tuberose and Gardenia and Sensuous Nude so much, and I am happy I can finally get them with a bit of a discount (during sales and such) through Sephora. Off to generously spritz on some Tuberose and Gardenia just 'cause
Just wanted to pass on the fact that Macy's online (only) now has the following hard-milled bath soaps: Miss Dior and Coco by Chanel! They both smell great, and as someone who prefers the long-lasting nature of soaps, as opposed to body washes, which can "turn" and smell weird, I thought I'd pass this along. Too bad Sephora doesn't cary them. I've also gotten the Miss Dior from Nordstrom's online.
