    Re: Need help on choosing fragrance

    I believe J. del Pozo's "Quasar" is what you might be looking for. (Not to be confused with the "O Boticário" one.) But I'm not sure how long-lasting it will be on your skin. It's fresh, banana peel...

    Re: Need help on choosing fragrance

    Thanks again for the input. It sounds like D&G should be the one, but the overpowering aspect kinda scares me off.

    Re: Question about synthetic ingredients

    Thanks for the reply, but how would I know if a certain fragrance I purchase is synthetic or not?

    Are the more expensive ones not synthetic?
