Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I am so hoping Sephora will get the SDJ '71 large spray in. It's on SDJ site and Sephora has two of the others in the large size. 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

For anyone interested the AERIN Perfume Discovery Set is back in stock. So love the AERIN Lilac Path

but can't buy the full size right now. Not too crazy about the AERIN Mediterranean Honeysuckle

so maybe that one will be saved for giving. We'll see how it is when I revisit it.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@Margalee Aerin Lilac Path is one of my absolute favorite perfumes!!   If I had to choose just five  perfumes to keep, it would be included, as would Viktor and Rolf Dancing Roses, maison Louis Marie Anidris Cassis, and Kilian Apple Brandy and Juliette Has a Gun MMMM…

Juliette Has a Gun MMMM… 3.3 oz/ 100 mL Eau de Parfum Spray KILIAN Paris Apple Brandy Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray AERIN Lilac Path 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray #Maison Louis Marie Antidris Cassis Perfume Oil 0.50 oz/ 15mL Oil 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I’m looking for a scent that is warm and smells like a soft cashmere sweater. Does anyone know any scents that match this?

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@Kozz15 

 

I'd also keep an eye out for heliotrope or cashmeran in a notes pyramid.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@Kozz15 no being sassy here but try Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Eau de Parfum . It's very warm and cozy. It doesn't last for hours on me but it's got an amazing opening.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

DK cashmere mist also automatically came to mind, @Margalee. It's been around since the late 90's (or earlier?) @Kozz15. Hope you found something nice!

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I’m in love with the notes! Definitely will be my next buy thank you!!

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I have a couple that make me think of what you described: HERMÈS Eau des Merveilles I see mixed reviews on this one, so I don’t think a blind buy is wise for this one. It has a very warm note to it.

 

Another one is Chloé Chloé Naturelle Eau de Parfum , which has an effervescence and it isn’t necessarily a warm fragrance but it’s so clean and classic, that it makes me think it matches the mood you suggested. (I received this free from Sephora with no obligation to post, but happen to be wearing it now and I really like it.)

This one from Clean CLEAN RESERVE Reserve - Skin 3.4 oz/ 101 mL Eau de Parfum Spray would be lovely also.  Maybe you would love the CLEAN RESERVE Classic - Warm Cotton too, though I think that smells more like laundry.

 

One more lovely, clean classic you might try is CHANEL N°5 EAU PREMIÈRE Eau de Parfum . Good luck! @Kozz15 

 

 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Omg these all sound amazing thank you soooo much I have to get my hands on these!

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Hey everyone! I'm looking for something sexy, mature, and classy. 😍 What's new out there? My most recent purchase was Si by Armani! 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

If you like Armani perfumes then you have to try Armani's My Way perfume. I don't know if I would describe as mature but it is very feminine floral scent and smells incredible. Everywhere I go I have people chase me down and ask me what I'm wearing and I've only been wearing this perfume for a month, lol! It's my new favorite! I can't recommend it enough. Just be aware there are 2 Armani My Way perfumes, the original My Way and My Way Intense. I have not tried the My Way Intense yet. 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@Quandolyn I think CHANEL COCO Eau de Toilette and CHANEL COCO MADEMOISELLE Eau de Parfum Intense are mature but not 60+. They could be but perfect for 30+ also. KILIAN Paris Straight To Heaven, White Cristal is down right sexy but it is unisex and leans a bit masculine. Also GUERLAIN Shalimar Eau de Parfum 1 oz/ 30 mL Eau de Parfum Spray is very beautiful and has a great backstory. It's a very comfortable, warm fragrance to me.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@Quandolyn When I think sexy, mature, classy, I tend to think of more vintage style perfumes like chypres though these are not to everyone's taste. Because they're not commercial crowd pleasers, the best, most creative or outgoing ones tend to be dreadfully expensive. I'm thinking Bogue's Maai and many of the Amouages. There are newish ones that are more affordable though, like the original Agent Provocateur.

 

Sexy and mature also implies to me the use of "dirty" musks which again, are not for everyone! I'm thinking Malle's Musc Ravageur or Kiehl's Musk. Some leathers hit this category like Hermes' Gallop, which is a gorgeous rose-leather, and the classic Cuir Russie by Chanel. "Orientals" can be musky as well, vintage Opium being a prime example, GUERLAIN Shalimar Eau de Parfum 1.6oz/50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray to a lesser degree There are of course musky chypres including a personal favourite, vintage Femme by Rochas and Papillon's Salome, both of which I own.

 

Some ouds can be a little animalic and funky. I love Kilian's Musk Oud which is very easy to wear while others like Dusita's Oudh Infini can be very challenging.

 

If you want something cleaner, I'd recommend looking into perfumes by Kilian and Serge Lutens. Good luck finding the right perfume for you 🙂

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Thank you so much! I'm definitely going to take a look at those recommendations. 💋🤍

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Has anyone tried Kayali Eden Juicy Apple 01 or Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Ruby Orchid Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL eau de parfum spray ? Love the mini bottle Eden comes in and sounds delicious. 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Love love flower bomb!! You definitely should go for it😀

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Yes and YES! I thought I would "like" V&R Flowerbomd but I don't.... I LOVE it. Definitely in the running to becoming a new favorite and my husband LOVES it on me😌

 

As far as Eden goes... I am OBSESSED! I initially only purchased the mini and the same day I turned around and purchased the full size bottle. It's just that good!💋🍎😌

 

 

 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I have the Kayali Eden and it's devine. I definitely recommend it.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

How does CDG Vogue 125 smell in person? Maybe silly question but has anyone ever smelled this?
