What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I'm one of those gals that are obsessed with fragrances and have about around 50 60 70 80 and still collecting...(if you want to call it that.) So I would like to know what are you wearing today?

 

I'm wearing Obsession...(hahaha kinda fits this thread, doesn't it? Smiley Very Happy)

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

It's a big violet powder bomb but I love that so much! I like most all of her frags but one though, I think. Westwood frags and bags = <3 ! Smiley Very Happy

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Tocca Margaux...it's supposed to invoke moonlight and true love.  Gardenia, violet, musk, cashmere wood and vanilla.

About 90 degrees here and sunny...but it reminds me of another scent I can't place and I'm enjoying that nostalgia.

In So Ca we build our moods as we can...so much same old same old with the weather and seasons...

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Seconded. Started out my day in Margaux, finishing it in Flowerbomb. I guess I just want my own bouquet of flowers.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

i adore margaux. prob my fave by tocca.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Tocca is such a romantic brand to me...I really love a few....

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Margaux is my go-to cold weather scent.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Living in So CA I've learned to adapt...we don't get a lot of cold weather...which is why I go crazy with summer collections of anything!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I got the Juliette Has A Gun Discovery Kit last week and have been trying a few of them. Today I'm wearing Miss Charming for the second time!

 

There are a few in the kit that I would never wear (Midnight Oud, Gentlewoman) but overall I'm very happy with the set!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Oh, I tried Gentlewoman during the Rouge event a few months ago... I HATED that!!!  Smiley Very Happy

 

I did find a few out of the Discovery kit that were interesting though, particularly Citizen Queen (I had a kit from pre-Gentlewoman launch) and there was another one but the name is escaping me.  

 

Hope you're enjoying them!  If you ever get a chance, I'd also highly recommend their 2 'luxe' fragrances Oil Fiction and Moondance.  

 

 

 

 

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Was it Calamity J? I wish the stores in Calgary carried these! Maybe when I go to NY in Sept I will try the super expensive luxe ones!

 

I think my nose was built very simple... I have tried to like the more "complex" scents raved by fragrance aficionados on Fragrantica and I have not liked any of them. Take Tom Ford Noir...noir extreme? It was almost a perfect scent on the site yet when I smelled it at Nordies it hit me so hard I almost fell backwards. 

 

On the flip side, the simpler, more obvious smelling and less...overwhelming...scents are what I love. That is why this kit is so amazing! They smell completely unique from what I have, are complex ENOUGH for me to appreciate but not so much that I want to wash myself after 2 minutes!

 

or maybe I just like gourmand and fresh/floral scents, and the super complex ones usually aren't in those categories. I have no idea. 

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I've heard so many people rave about the "Juliette Has a Gun" kit ... how are you liking it?

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I'm really loving the slight more complex scents so far! They are definitely more interesting than the usual generic brand names scents. My top 3: Miss Charming, Mad Madame, and Lady Vengeance, all have the distinct rose scent that I LOVE and am missing from my current collection. I think it will definitely come down to those 3. I think it is very good value and great for trying them out since no sephora near me carries the line. I think it came to $18CAD including shipping and took about 2 weeks? Maybe 3? To arrive. I spray 3-4 times and I think each tiny sample will last me at least 5 wears each. Which is actually a lot considering there are 9 samples (even though I think 2 of them won't get touched by me)!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I got the kit as well! My top four were Romantina, Lady Vengeance, Vengeance Extreme, and Miss Charming. I'm not sure I love one enough to commit to a full size though. What I like about the JHAG scents is that to me they tend to be fairly soft and subtle. 

 

I'm kind of picky about scents. Not very sophisticated about them, but definitely picky.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

90% of the time, I wear Elizabeth & James Nirvana White! I got a sample of this on a whim back when it first came out. Brought it with me on a trip to Seattle, and I've loved it ever since. It's so easy to get sick of perfumes, and when that happens, I always fall back on this one Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I feel in love with it too over the summer!  I'm going to try layering White with Black as a transition into fall.  <insert eyebrow wiggle>

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I can't stand white, but Black is growing on me. Trying to decide if I want a full size of it or Alien since the drydown on both goes to Vanilla on me.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I used to only wear Brownie by Demeter, but this summer I really got into Elizabeth and James Nirvana, too.

 

I love wearing them both together, it has such a sexy vibe.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I feel like the black is just too musky for me. But everyone talks about how the two wear well together, so maybe I should try it. I still have some Nirvana Black samples laying around!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I agree. The black just came off as too musky for me.
