  1. Valentino Valentina, Strawberry?

    A new release from Valentino, Valentina is to be launched in September. It sounds like something that I would love, floriental described (by the PR anyway) as 'sensual', I even like the pinky girly bottle. But listed in the notes is strawberry...

    The last time I can remember smelling strawberry was in a The Body Shop product a decade ago. It didn't smell bad at all, but for some reason as soon as I read that my interest waned. In the interest in not shutting myself off into perfume ...

  2. Justin Beiber, $30M - Someday, $32 - Ridiculous Perfume Packaging, Priceless

    I just saw Robin's post over at nstperfume.com about JB's new frag and the thing that stuck me most was the bottle. Many people have commented that my absolute favourite perfume (Kingdom) smells a bit like a 'lady's love purse' but my first thought upon seeing it was that the flower on top of JB's frag LOOKS like one! Without reading the article I saw the pic and immediately thought some avant garde house was being tongue-in-cheek about the packaging for their new 'essence-of-woman' perfume. Whoops... ...

  3. Chloe Narcisse

    I was wandering about and found a bottle in the pharmacy for 6. I remember my mother having a bottle when I was a child and feeling nostalgic I bought it. I'm most intrigued by the fact that it's one of the most negatively reviewed fragrances that I've come across on this site. Another of my favs (Kingdom) is very widely hated lol. Going to test today, I'll be the girl on the bus everyone is moving away from

  4. Perfume - Stinking Great?

    I've just read the article in the 'Just Starting Out' forum - http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandsty...me-ingredients - some of the more "nasty" notes/ingredients in fragrance

    And it was one of the best reads I've gotten on perfume, amusing and full of not so pretty truths about what at first appears classic and beautiful. I was a little surprised to find some of my favourites (Shalimar, Kelly Caleche) among the list of perfumes including 'stinky' notes but then not surprised ...

  5. Re-review - Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle

    Ok, so wanting something fresh and pretty today I decided to go for Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle again. I love most of the other poisons so I was really excited to get it as a gift and couldn't wait to try it out. My first spritz was a big let down. Its really pretty and by any definition smells 'good' but I found it so dessert-like and it faded so quickly I was starting to scope out friends collections to initiate a swap. Thought I'd revisit today because well I'm desperate and my friends all ...
