Hey guys, I'm looking for a new perfume. I'm in my late teens, so I don't want a perfume that's too mature but not overly sweet, like what many of the girls are wearing today. I'm looking for something fresh, I guess. I'm also looking for a perfume that lasts longer than the one I'm wearing.   I've been wearing Vera Wang's Lovestruck for a while, and I like it, but I'm kind of tired of it. Admittedly, it IS a little on the sweet side for me, but it's not too bad cause the musky notes balance it out somewhat. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!!  
So, Sephora's description of the Daisy Eau So Fresh gift set says that both the rollerball and the fragrance are eau de parfum. I've looked at the same kit at other retailers though and everywhere else says the two are eau de toilette instead. The size of the perfume bottle that Sephora includes in the kit is smaller than other retailers so it would make sense for the bottle to be eau de parfum, but I was just wondering if anyone knows for sure what is included in Sephora's gift set. Thank you!
I got a Michael Kors 'Very Hollywood' sample in a Sephora Favorites holiday pack a few years ago, bought the full size with the voucher, now its discontinued!! Anyone have a recommendation for a fragrance that is similar?
I posted in reference to my future Paris trip recently and received great feedback from quite a few people. I now wanted to ask about experiences with specific fragrance houses that I've narrowed down onto a short list. They are the following:    Nose -  http://nose.fr/en/ Le Labo -  http://www.lelabofragrances.com/ Annick Goutal -  http://www.annickgoutal.com/en/ What draws me to Nose is that they offer rare scents. In regards to Le Labo, they can make you a custom fragrance. (Who wouldn't want that?) As far as Annick Goutal, I love floral, feminine fragrances, but I do know that I can buy these at Nordstroms. However, it may be cool to check out their boutique. Due to the prices of these fragrances (and the fact that I already have 7 different fragrances in my possession), I can probably only buy one. Therefore, I thought narrowing down this further may help me accomplish that. Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated!   P.S. I know everyone is probably wondering why Guerlain is not on this list, but, from what I've seen, their fragrances are cheaper in the US than France.
Hey beauty lovers! I'm looking for a new perfume and I'm wanting something flirty, sensual, warm, and maybe a little sweet. Nothing too overpowering or floral. I'm about to finish a second bottle of Prada Candy. I love the scent of Candy, but the lasting power is below average. I've been interested in Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, but I haven't had the chance to sniff it just yet!    Other perfumes I enjoy are: Dior J'adore Dior Addict Dolce & Gabbana The One Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy Ralph Lauren Big Pony for Women #2 Marc Jacobs Lola

I've been using Ban's "Shower Fresh" deodorant for a while now and I feel like it wears off after a couple hours and reacts weirdly with some of my perfumes, leaving a strange scent on my shirts. I'm looking for something new that is either unscented or has a light scent so that it doesn't clash with my perfumes and of course, BT was the first place I thought to ask my question. So I know it might be kind of weird to ask this, but which deodorant do you ladies use? 
I read about this perfume on  a site which I completely forgot the name of, LOL, but the description of the scent caught my attention so I decided to order it.  What do you think?

I absolutely love wearing perfumes but I have been using the same one for a really long time and I'm just getting bored of it. I've constantly been looking for a new sweet girly scent but I'm having a hard time choosing one. I don't want it to be too heavy but I also don't want to reek like straight up sugar. Any suggestions????
How is everyone liking the new perfume? Good? Bad? What does it smell like?

  My wife absolutely loves Taylor Swift's fragrance "Wonderstruck", and I was just wondering how it compares to more exclusive and more well known fragrance brands, in terms of lasting scent, subtleties, and pricing...      
I was gifted a fragrance purchased from the Sephora fragrance sampler but I do not like it. Can I exchange it for the one I want? 
I'm looking for a replacement for the now-discontinued Miss Dior Cherie L'eau. I find the regular Miss Dior Cherie (now called Miss Dior Eau de Parfum, I think) and the Eau Fraiche versions to be overwhelming--I think the tuberose note is far too strong, and they both give me headaches. But these are the only two fragrances that I have seen suggested as replacements for Miss Dior Cherie L'eau.    Any suggestions for a light but sophisticated floral that is similar to Miss Dior Cherie L'eau? 
Does sephora store there perfume correctly ? Because i bought a bottle of coach poppy and when i opened it up in the car the bottles temapature was warm? I am worried that the top notes are ruined. Do the bins sephora stores perfumes in have lights inside them? Beucause I got mine from the shelf. And am wondering if i should have asked for one from the back?
So, I just went through my small bag of sample size perfumes. Let just say I found a new love interest in Versace. I have both the Bright Crystal and Vanitas. Now I can't decide which one I should get. Which one would you guys recommend? Their scents are pretty much on both end of the spectrum. For me Vanitas has a more warm scent to it; while Bright Crystal is fresh and bright.     
I'm so sad, I don't seem to find Vivara anywhere! And when I found a website the prices were outrageous! Anyone know of anything that smells like Emilio Pucci's Vivara?

I would love to buy a long-lasting fragrance for the fall and need at least 5 choices to choose from. One more thing: I don't want to spend over $100 for it. 
  What is the difference between  Viva la Juicy Limi ted Edition Perfume and the regular viva la Juicy?
Does anyone know when Sephora will be getting Taylor Swift - Enchanted. Or if they are getting it at all?
Hey girls,   I just was wondering if any one had gotten the new Marc Jacobs fragrance. I just got it today and it smells sooooo good and the bottle is absolutely adorable!
Hi Kat! I would love to know if there is any chance to purchase your parfumes in Europe. Cuz I am dying to buy it but it is impossible even to order for now!
I love the scent of Korean skin care products (e.g. AmorePa cific , IOPE, LaNeige, etc.) and would like to find a perfume with that type of scent. The closest I found was years ago with Shiseido's Relaxing Fragrance, which is off the market.  I've used D&G Light Blue for years without alternati ng because it's hard to find a scent that's fresh, slightly fruity/floral, not to o citrusy, not too floral, not powdery, and not strong overall.   Any suggestions? (Korean brand recommendations are welcomed, too, as I live in Los Angeles.) Thanks!
Normally a sweet & light perfume wearer, I've been searching for something spicy and musky for fall/winter for a couple of years now to no luck. A few suggestions for me to sniff next time I'm in Sephora would be welcomed, thanks!   Not sure that it will help for identifying what I like in the spicy/musky category, but my sweet & light favorites are: D&G lmperatrice Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche (the green one) Prescriptives Calyx Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire
