Fragrance Junkie Central

I know there are a few of us on BT that are fragrance addicts, so I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated place where we can share our thoughts.

 

This is not to take away from the lovely What Are You Wearing Today, Fragrance Edition thread, but more a place to post longer reviews, chat about new brands or releases, and just shoot the breeze on anything good and smelly 🙂

 

For me, I recently acquired 2 new decants that I've been anxiously awaiting.  Ever since Lachaton mentioned that MMM was releasing a new scent called By The Fireplace I've been itching to get my hands on it.  My decant arrived yesterday, so I'm looking forward to marinating in it this weekend.  Secondly, I recently picked up a tiny sample of Shiseido Nombre Noir.  Supposedly it is one of the most expensive failures in perfume history - made by Serge Lutens for Shiseido back in the 80s.  Of course, with a backstory like that, I was dying to get a sniff 😄

 

What's new on your scent radar?  Do tell!

@QueenMarceline I also bought this from Ulta when it had extra points on top of perfume points and my Ulta card with more points. I like it soooooo much better than the standard Good Girl. Which I will admit I hate, my mood might change at some point. But this one is right up there! Just like you said.

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@Weetart I actually really like the Bad Girl but the reviews on the Very Good Girl are kind of less than ideal. I'll have to decide which one I like more after wearing it a few times but so far I really want this one 🙂

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@QueenMarceline I got the set from ulta w/the travel size and red lipstick, mainly cuz of the packaging...not sure if they have it still, I can try to get a pic later....but like someone else said, there were extra pts. bc it was the fragrance crush in Nov. I think, and then there was an extra 5x pts, so would have been 10x pts., so I considered getting one too, and went to my ulta to smell them, but its so hard to smell anything in there, this is the only one that I could smell, and I liked it a bit (I love rose), but also, idk...but i got that lil set just to try, and the lipstick packaging was so regal, looked like versace or something.

 

but, idk about this whole line, it kinda smells like barfy to me, lol...again its hard to smell anything in the store tho...I think I remember liking the supreme and legere versions better, but those ones are like empty when I go there...perhaps I need to get a travel size sometime, when theyre on sale, so I can test them properly, at home...

 

I didnt know about a bad girl, only the bad boy.

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@treestar86 Next time I'm at ULTA I will spray myself down with the Very Good Girl and see if I like it after 24 hours. That's usually the way I like to test if I genuinely enjoy a perfume 🙂

New MMM replica, After The Rain Stops

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

just providing a few thoughts on this one. It truly is a beautiful fragrance! It is a very watery floral that does evoke a feeling of rain! This has redeemed itself for me as the last two MM releases have been dispointing for me. I was so excited for coffee break...but where was the coffee? Autumn vibes...so excited yet almost a straight up sandalwood on me. This one however I would is truer to the "story". Hth someone.

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@Mochapj, I was excited to see this pop up on the app for early access and used the 20% off to purchase the spray. I don’t always pick up the overall scent intended by MMM fragrances but I’m hoping I do with this one. The cool, fresh scent in the air after the rain is one of my favorites and I hope that comes through on me with this fragrance. @ChristalM 

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@itsfi - I'd love to hear what you think!  The notes in this one are right up my alley...except for the rose. 😝

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

I’ll be sure to let you know @Titian06. 😃 I understand the feelings on rose scents. I like certain rose scents but am definitely particular about them. Will be sure to be mindful of how the rose in this one comes across. 

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@Mochapj ohhhh pine needle! I will be trying this one out!

Sneak peek of a new TF fragrance

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Nice although I am not much of a rose fan. What happened to Vanilla Sex I wonder...

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

I wore the new Le Labo Thé Matcha for Halloween to try it out, and it smells the same on me as it does just spraying it into the air. Very soft, fig-forward ... I don't smell a lot of matcha but it's a very calming scent. I still smelled it in my car this morning on the way to work! I think I'm going to pick up a bottle from Nordstrom — a small bottle, since I only really wear perfume when I'm going out (so rarely), but I really like this one!

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Do we know when will TF Ebene Fume be available and where? What about samples? Anything? I am not much into TF, but this one really sounds nice. I'd like to try it. 

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@RavenR Not sure if you're Canadian but Holts has testers. I wrote about it here https://community.sephora.com/t5/Fragrance-Fans/The-Perfume-Challenge/td-p/2633976/page/4

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@pocketvenus Thank you! But, no. Not Canadian. Unless I find it somewhere in stores on my rare trips to anywhere much lately... I guess I will just have to wait for some of the usual decanting sites to get it...

@blackkitty2014  @Mochapj  Thank you!
