Champagne Apple & Honey by Bath and Body Works

One of many BBW sprays that I like to use after a shower and before bed....

Eau des Merveilles by Hermès

Eau de Merveilles is GLORIOUS! Maybe it's the way it mixes with my skin chemistry is just soooo good. The saltiness and the orange are such a good balance. Sillage is arm's length, and longevity is 8+ hours. BEAUTIFUL!

Tous Happy Moments by Tous

I really enjoy this happy gem of a scent! It's a lightweight fruity floral with a hint of gourmand, that's perfect for the office or any day setting. The pineapple note is the most prominent note on my skin, and it smells true to life. Happy Moments works any time of year, and it's affordable to boot. What's not to like? I reach for my sample over and over and will absolutely buy a full bottle as soon as I need to.....

Stella by Stella McCartney

Stella is always the right choice when I don't have an idea of what fragrance to wear. It's perfect for the office, daytime/evening, any season, and is unlikely to offend anyone. It's pleasant and comfortable. I wish the formulation hadn't changed though....the older version was so much better!

Believe by Britney Spears

Love this perfume....this is one of Britney's older perfumes that doesn't get as much attention as it should. I particularly like the "hippie" patchouli note in the drydown....it's really balanced well with the sweetness of the other notes. GOOD STUFF!

Katy Perry's Indi by Katy Perry

To my unsophisticated nose, this is a spot-on dupe for JHaG's Sunny Side Up....Great price and lasts all day...

Green Tea Mimosa by Elizabeth Arden

Green Tea Mimosa is my favorite in the Green Tea line. It's fresh and clean, powdery and light. GREAT ONE!

My Green Summer by Yves Rocher

I have really enjoyed My Green Summer the past few weeks. It really cuts thru the heat and humidity; it seems comparable to D&G Light Blue to my nose, but a bit crisper and definitely a better price point. Thumbs up! :)

Poopoo Pidoo by Ego Facto

Poopoo Pidoo was the very first sample I ever ordered from Luckyscent, many years ago. Last year I finally bought a bottle. I LOVE THIS SCENT. It's soft, gentle, a bit vintage, and totally ladylike. Highly recommended!

Euphoria by Gorilla Perfume

Maybe my sample is old, but I can't smell this 10 minutes after spraying? These are all notes that I like, but I get nothing! :)

Candy Sugar Pop by Prada

Wearing a sample of Candy Sugar Pop, and I believe I like it a bit better than the original Prada Candy. If I put my nose to wrist, I can pick up the apple note, which freshens this up and lightens it....

Lemon Éclair by Ganache Parfums

One of the best gourmands I've ever had....my only beef is that it fades away in just a couple of hours on my skin. But is smells EXACTLY like a lemon eclair...the lemon is truly fresh and foody, and doesn't do that "furniture polish" smell! Love!

UPDATE, Oct 28, 2019....Don't know what has changed, but I wore this last night, and I can still smell it on my skin...longevity does not match my previous comment from last year??? :)

White Tea by Elizabeth Arden

I'm really enjoying this one! On my skin, I get a nice opening of clary sage, and then primarily the ambrette seed for the rest of the wear. Longevity is a good 6 hours before it fades; I would love to try some of the body products to keep it going a bit longer. I've been reaching for White Tea a lot lately...great for fall/winter!

And The World Is Yours by A Lab on Fire

WOW! This is just gorgeous, as I expected! Mr. Ropion is one of my favorite noses; I own several of his creations and love them all. The neroli and spices are perfectly blended, and the vanilla musk brings everything together beautifully. Sillage is excellent....it's actually projecting a bit louder than I usually prefer....but it's not overwhelming. This is NOT daytime/office perfume, at least in my world. This is evening, date night, claim your own Oscar in a ballgown perfume. Beautiful! PS. It's time to sample more of A Lab on Fire's scents! I love "What We Do in Paris is Secret"....it's time to sample 'em all!

D&G La Tempérance 14 by Dolce & Gabbana

I never realized how much I enjoy ambrette until recently....it's really nice in this scent. La Temperance 14 fades to a skin scent in just a couple of hours, but sometimes that's exactly what I want. Perfect for the office or anywhere where you need to go light. Like this one a lot!

Don't Get Me Wrong Baby Yes I Do by Etat Libre d'Orange

I really like this scent, but on my skin it's gone in about 2 hours. Sillage is very light too, but I actually prefer that.....

Etat Libre d'Orange is my fave niche house!

Sex On The Beach by Demeter Fragrance Library

Smells GREAT.....for all of 10 minutes. Then it's G-O-N-E. I guess I'll spray a lot more next try! :)

Clémentine California by Atelier Cologne

This is a real winner, but citrus is not the main note that I get with this Atelier. My skin pulls way more juniper than clementine with this scent....

Good stuff!

Coconut Passion by Victoria's Secret

If you want vanilla, this is an inexpensive vanilla that smells pretty authentic. Fades fast, so take your bottle with ya..... :)

Snow by Demeter Fragrance Library

I don't know how Demeter does it, but Snow really does smell just like the air before a snowfall. That wet, sort of floral smell, that smells of earth and moisture and...air? I like it! A couple of stars off for longevity. When I spray, I might get an hour or two before it fades.

I am fascinated by Demeter and collect them as I find them...and Snow is a goodie!

Love by Victoria's Secret

Meh!

Smells pleasant, but anything but memorable.....

Green Tea Nectarine Blossom by Elizabeth Arden

This is a zero sillage skin scent that I really like. It's fresh and light, and perfect for times when perfume might not work (ie. crowded office), but I still want to smell good. Inexpensive to boot, so reapplying thoughout the day is no big deal....

Prends Garde à Toi by Ego Facto

Well, I'm not sure how I feel about the nettle note. I don't love it, but I don't dislike it either. This is an oddball smell on my skin.

It's different though...not the usual fruity floral "meh" combination, so big points for that!

Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum by Pinaud

One of the sexiest scents that my hubby wears! Highly recommended gentlemen's scent that I wish more men would splash on in my corner of the universe....LOL!

Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte by Bath and Body Works

This is probably the one BBW fragrance that I actually crave in the fall. There is just something about the marshmallow note that I really enjoy, both in the shower gel and the mist. Good stuff! Pretty good longevity and sillage for a mist as well, and cheap to boot....

Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort Collection 2017 by Elie Saab

Gotta go with a neutral review on this one....only because it's sooooooo strong on my skin. I'm the type that wants a perfume to add to the scents of my day; I still want to smell the flowers outside, my meal cooking, etc. Resort 2017 is gorgeous, but it takes over my nose and blocks out everything else.

That being said, I'm gonna experiment with spraying ONE spray behind my knees, because I do enjoy the scent. (I love quite a bit of Kirkdijan's work!) This one just projects a bit much for my taste....

Nirvana French Grey by Elizabeth and James

I am sampling French Grey right now, and really enjoying it! I do believe lavender is a note that I underappreciated until recently. This scent has nice, arms-length sillage, good longevity, and an unisex vibe that I like. Definitely full bottle worthy for me!
25th August, 2017

Green Tea Tropical by Elizabeth Arden

Fresh and clean....perfect in heat and humidity. Doesn't last long at all, but at this price, I don't mind reapplying as needed....

Sometimes on a sweltering hot day, this type of scent is the only thing I want to wear!

Kismet (new) by Lubin

Kismet is GORGEOUS!!! Beautiful drydown that lasts for hours....

A might bit pricey for my budget, but on the wishlist it goes anyway.... :)
22nd June, 2017

Coco Noir by Chanel

Sweet fancy Moses I LOVE this stuff! Longevity on my skin is forever, sillage is cozy and minimal, and the drydown is just heavenly.

A bit pricey, but I'm willing to save up for it..... :)
