Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I just recently got the Nest Rose Noir and Oud candle that came free with a fragrance purchase and I am in LOVE with the scent. If anyone knows anything similar to it in perfume form I would greatly appreciate it.

@Jragon 

Dramatic and dark rose-oud fragrances are very popular Smiley Happy You might like

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Hi @Jragon !

 

I haven't smelled that exact candle, but if I had to guess based on the fragrance notes I'd suggest trying JO MALONE LONDON - Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne Intense, which is a lovely warm floral with rich rose and oud. For other warm roses, I'd try TOM FORD - Café Rose, THE 7 VIRTUES - Rose Amber Eau de Parfum, and AERIN - Evening Rose.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Love this idea for a thread @pocketvenus. Especially since my Velvet is gone and I’m more interested in seasonal scents. Thank you for starting this.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@pocketvenus - This is definitely a thread BIC needs!  Looking forward to people's questions and your answers!  Smiley Happy

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Great idea for a new thread, @pocketvenus!  I'll start off--I'm looking for a fragrance with watermelon.  I really enjoyed the Escada Sorbetto Rosso from last year but I'd love to find another perfume with similar notes.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

not really a perfume (although it should be), but hempz coconut + watermelon lotion smells really good! Smiley Happy

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Awesome list @Vmaster !! @CookieGirl1 the only one I can think of to add is Demeter's Watermelon Lollipop Smiley Happy

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@pocketvenus I've definitely heard of that one but never actually smelled it. Have you?

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@CookieGirl1I honestly can't recall as I've smelled so many. I do find this house to be very consistent and spot on with fruity, candy flavours. Not so much with the weirder ones like Sushi and Cannabis.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@pocketvenus I don't think I have any great desire to smell like sushi, anyway, LOL. I've only smelled a couple of fragrances from Demeter  - - ones that I've found at TJ Maxx or Marshalls - and they were cute but a little cheap smelling.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@CookieGirl1Thankfully sushi didn't actually smell like sushi! I agree, they're like fun, novelty scents.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@Vmaster uh, wow.  I'm genuinely impressed by the list that you came up with!  I've only smelled/heard of about half of those!

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@CookieGirl1  I have the internet at my disposal. Smiley Happy

 

PS I added a few more.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@Vmaster and I was prepared to give you all the credit for being a fragrance guru, lol.  The problem is availability; it's easy to look up notes on perfumes but another thing entirely to have access to smell them. 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@CookieGirl1Actually, I have smelled quite a few (but not all) of those.

I agree with the availability part, but as quickly as some fragrances disappear, it is hard to keep up.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Wow, I'm a little bit envious, @Vmaster

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@CookieGirl1  I am not a guru, but I have a great love of fragrances ever since I was a kid (I'm 52 now). A lot has changed since then, and not in a good way.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@CookieGirl1  I love that one too! I love all the Escada scents Smiley Happy I would like to find something similar too.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@suzyo I've really only tried a few of the Escada fragrances but I completely got my mom hooked on Turquoise Summer, lol. My only gripe is that none of them seem to last on my skin for any length of time Smiley Sad
