Good morning all !. Kiliwia, congrats on your purchase yesterday. Your approach mirrors my own completely - makes no difference whether it is niche, designer, or bargain basement as long as you enjoy it. Also agree wholeheartedly with Wolfie's remark about integrity. I can wear whatever I like and never be subjected to any judgemental or rude comments on this thread, only honest and constructive opinions - to rubber stamp the theory I went with a low cost celebrity scent of my own this morning.
Carlos Santana for Men
Oh ya, congrats on that purchase K! I don't think I've sniffed many celeb scents that I like so far but if I did, I would totally wear it!!! Who cares?:D. If it smells good, it smells good. Haven't tried the Trump one, a little bit interested now. The only thing that I don't tend to care for is an apple note, other than that, sounds alright:).
Good morning, good smelling people.
I am laaaayered, body shop Moringa body butter, which is quite assertive, and Keiko Meicheri Datura Blanche. Kind of a pile of buttery white floral goo today. I quite like it, but both of these are love/hate scents in my experience - either "mmm, what is that?" (I have literally sold both of these just by wearing them.) or hissing and spitting and claims of sudden acute chemical sensitivities, nothing in between.
Congrats on your purchase Kiliwia. Pretty bottle too. I concur with Jon and Twolf, if you love it, wear it. No shame around here! I love that a guy hopped into the forum earlier last month and made the blanket statement that all designer scents are terrible. Go back to the men's forum! Seriously, nowhere in life is the statement all of X is Y. Lets try a few shall we... all niche are worth buying. All designer scents suck. All women like pink. All men hate perfume. All women's perfume are for women only. All masculines are for men only. I think we Basenoters are made up of both common and the exceptions. I like pink and flowers and many masculine scents. Now if you're saying all chocolate is good. Hmmm... course if you cover a cricket in chocolate I may have to take that back. Personally I love Queen by Queen Latifah. So there!
Today I'm wearing my sample of Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanilla. I wore black and white and thought that was fitting ;)
