Hello, I was just wondering if you ladies could help me out with this question.
What are some popular female fragrances?
They don't have to be that great, but just well known. Something like...
wow, thats a great jacket you found stevo30.
Yeah, H & M and Zara are great but sometimes you just want a piece thats not available from them.
Been thinking about starting a thread or a website/blog like this for a while. The basic idea is to get a popular fashion piece but find a cheaper/less expensive substitute (no knock offs). I truly...
on this note, does anyone have an unscented or very lightly scented deodorant they can recommend to me?
i always wondered if they smell.
I have bought from discount websites a couple times and have had good results. When you can get the same product for 40-50% off, there is no reason not to shop online unless you really don't care.
not really digging the tassles (no offense)
i dont like pomade...
it seems like no matter how little i use, my hair always looks greasy.
ill probably order it online then
now another question...
unbound or 360 red? im in the market for an ADG clone
does anyone know where i can get halston unbound retail?
i checked marshalls, tj maxx, jc penny etc... no luck.
where can i get halston unbound retail?
i like american crew forming cream - green color bottle.
It holds well and looks like you aren't using product when you're wearing it.
Sean John unforgivable
Perry Ellis 360 Red
alfred sung - shi
I like unforgivable as well...
i'm going to recommend coolwater by davidoff
it smells cool, fresh and clean. Perfect for a warm day.
eh... this won't help you out but here's a little story about my search for a song..
so in the summer of 2000 my buddy made me a trance/techno mix cd for me to listen to. My favorite song to this...
they don't have this at my marshalls anymore :(
I bought this blind from a fellow basenoter and i REALLY like this. Unfortunately its about to run out (bought it 30% full) and its discontinued. Is there anything out there similar to Rochas Homme...
Not sure if this has been mentioned but my local marshalls has a Zirh skincare giftset. Comes with a big container of the cleanser, moisturizer (with spf), scrub and a 1 oz Zirh EDT for 24.99
i think BR has better quality than H&M too. wouldn't know about Zara, as there are no stores close to me..
i'm looking for a timeless look, not really trendy styles. I am willing to pay a bit more...
hey guys, i'm looking for clothes that have a banana republic like style but better quality. I love the clothes i get from BR, (they're having a 50% of sale everything in the store) but it seems like...
yup, i attend college so half the time i go to class half awake...
apply some sprays of my sexy juices and i'm good :D
i'd recommend coolwater - fresh, green and cheap! (35 for a 3.4oz)
cool; if you could tell me the successes you have with that, it'd be great. I absolutely hate going to the mall so I do not get a chance to try out scents from sephora etc. and it'd be great to get...
how do you guys apply samples/test them out? I just got a big batch of samples and i was wondering how much of that vial i should apply to get a good effect?
i'd like to echo that blind buys are retarded...
if you look in my wardrobe, i have LOT's of stuff that i'm not too ecstatic about and i don't regularly wear. When i first started out i wanted to...
any thoughts on himalaya? i found a decant that i thought i used up and i tried it on and i LOVED it. Not sure if its too strong though. I also have bois du portugal, which I will be trying tommorrow.
lol, at least he recognizes that its terrible!
saw that as a related video... IM JEALOUS!
does unforgivable count!? im about to purchase a bottle because it smells like M.I. and i would be embarrased to say i'm wearing P-diddy's fragrance.
what did you end up doing?
i am the same way.
I love the smell of the dreamer but because i have a sensitive nose, if i over do it i start feeling nauseous. One spray of that is enough for me.
seems like i have A LOT to check out...
i think terre d'hermes is at the top my list because i've seen it mentioned many times. but i also want to try gendarme and some of the others.. sigh, this...
By offensive i mean something overpowering... its kind of hard to describe but versace the dreamer is a good example. It's great if you love the fragrance but if you're ambivalent about it or even...
sure, but i'll worry about that later when i actually start making money :D
Hey guys, I will be working in an office/professional environment and I am looking to build a wardrobe of fragrances that are generally non-offensive or more professional.
These are some of my...
Hi, I was wondering what you guys do with the aftershave that usually comes in the gift boxes.
I'm about to purchase Vera Wang from marshalls but it only comes in the gift box coupled with the...
oh yeah, forgot about dreamer. one of my favorite fragrances but too much = headache.
seems like the general consensus is terre d'hermes.
must get my hands on a sample/decant :)
michael by michael kors (i have it but it gets nauseating after a while.)
i'm looking for a business casual men's shoe that won't break the bank. Something like alden but obviously not that finely made :)
i'm very eclectic. I have preppy stuff and i have trendy stuff. I like t-shirts with cool designs so i have a lot of those. I'm not into high fashion (expensive stuff!) because i don't feel...
i just got this http://www1.macys.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=200808&CategoryID=18119
suit today for interviews and other events. i loved the look and the feel of the material. I know CK isn't...
_________ irish tweed :)
i also liked lucky number 6 when i tried it on!!
i just thought it was too commercialized.
Which newly released colognes (1 year or less) have caught your attention? what are you looking forward to and what have you purchased?
give your reviews of the new scents, i'm really interested...
just noticed your post, i absolutely loved GIT.. been meaning to buy a bottle but would be a waste since i still have some in my decant.
anyways, id recommend Silver Mountain Water since you seem...
one of my favorites... it gets heat for having short sillage but i absolutely love it.
i honestly dont know what the fascination with Dana's English Leather is. I absolutely detest the scent, it smells like motor oil and a nursing home (most of my friends agree). When i was first...
i stop at 3 sprays, no matter how light/subtle a scent is.
i only go 1-2 for the heavier stuff (dreamer, yang) so you can say i have a light trigger finger.
i absolutely detest when people...
bleh, those other creed fragrances can wait... green irish tweed will be my first creed purchase. I've honestly just fell in love with it when i first got it. At first, i thought i didn't want it...
i love lacoste polo's but they hurt my wallet.
nope, i have to get a decant of SMW though... anyone willing to trade for a decant of BDP :)
yeah subtil isn't bad, but its definitely not good. it's boring and i definitely don't need a big 3.4...
of my paltry wardrobe i will rebuy
green irish tweed (actually have the decant but i MUST buy the bottle)
after applying some himalaya i've grown quite fond to this scent... i'm thinking about picking up some Paco Rabane XS since it seems like the majority opinion is that they are very similar.
green irish tweed.
i've got enough money to get 3 more cologne's to feed my addiction and i want to make good buys
currently i have..
ferragamo subtil - kinda like it, gets annoying after a while
guess man - love...
i ended up getting NOA fleur by cacharel...
thinking bout picking up tommy bahama.. what do you guys think about that scent? i loved it when i tested it but i dont know anything about women's...
hehe, funny you should ask, i just wrote down all the fragrances from this thread and im off to tj max to do some last minute shopping!
okay, here's an update. they never emailed me back but i got a package today with my order. HOWEVER, it is missing a john varvatos mini that i had paid for. i am not happy about this but i will take...
why is that?
so if i buy richard james i'm assured a job? :)
wow, you're like a little me.
i'm looking for something to wear to career fairs and interviews, something that'd leave an impresssion but is neutral (not a love it or a hate it type fragrance).
what should i look into?...
hey Simon Moon, I will be close to downtown LA and i have to take a trip if what your saying is true. However, can i trust the stores down there? I know downtown LA is notorious for passing off fake...
... and my bank account will shrink exponentially :)
is it one of those old fashioned shaves where the barber uses a huge blade to do it?
cuz if thats so, that'd be SO COOL.
pshh... i only have 3 - two of which i wear regularaly (don't really like the third one)
i'm not worried about the slow shipping, i'm worried about the fact that they don't respond to emails, they have 3 websites linked to one physical address and they don't pick up their phone. i know...
okay, did some more research and found out that perfumedistributor.com is part of the same network (they have the same address, same phone number).
this business looks VERY shady, i'm glad i only...
i placed an order at perfumenetwork.com because i saw their low prices and their cheap shipping but i will NEVER do business with them again. its been 4 days and i still haven't received any...
wow... interesting thing to put in a perfume..
keep em comming.
cool, will check those out!
tea for two sounds great - but it seems like i'll be wearing it more than her !
anyone have any mass market/ readily available reccomendations?
haha mochi, i...
cool, will check those out.. waht does ambergris smell like? sorry i'm a newb.
thanks for the responses.. keep the recommendations comming!
i'd like to add that michael kors is MUCH cheaper than the other two...
oh yeah, i'm definitely going to get samples/decants before i put down 100+ on a bottle.. thats for sure.. its just that there's so many creeds that i dont know where to start.
also, i'm trying to...
hey guys! so i just started collecting er.. using cologne and i'm sooo addicted. anyways, i think i have 3 more purchases and i'm done for the year. I definitely want a full range of colognes that i...
now that i'm addicted to fragrance, i'dl ike to spread the joy. i want to pick up something for my mom. She's 48, retired, conservative and doesn't like obtrusive smells. The only perfume she asked...
Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good. They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works every time.
ah, lucky you! discounts on fragrance.
for what its worth it has such a cool bottle that i'm tempted to blind buy it.
okay so i'm about to place an order on some samples/mini's from perfumebay
so far i have
Michael Kors mini
Burberry Brit mini
Nemo - sample
Very Wang for men - sample
John Varvatos - sample...
whats the best website for samples?
just got a bottle of dreamer, loving it.
also tried out l'bleu and rive gauche.
l'bleu is too flowery for me and wayyy too strong. the inital blast is overwhelming (lasts about an hour) but the...
i would also like to know
hehe.. unfortunately for the price i saw those cologne's for, i MUST buy them.
just tried rive gauche.. not a big fan. ill wait for the drydown but it reminds me of pumpkin pie.
bleh i saw the bleu at marshalls for 35...
this addiction is going to cost me $$$
what do you guys think about
issey miyake bleue
versace the dreamer
cool i will check those out...
i've heard great things about issey miyake.
also, can anyone categorize my scents?
i think guess man is a citrus (i'm new so might be wrong)
i like mochi icecream :)
i have a big 2.5 oz bottle of guess man.. loved the scent. its citrusy and fresh, perfect for every day use. i also like it because its subtle, it doesn't shout "hey i'm wearing cologne".
thanks for the replies!
i picked up my scents because they are really subtle.. i originally wanted lacoste essential but the perfumania sales associate showed me guess man and i liked it even...
it was more of a matter of convenience.. i didn't have time to shower 2-3 times a day and i detest the smell of axe.
oops another thing... i want to know why some perfumes are divided into "night" and "day" fragrances?
hey guys, i was browsing around looking for fragrance review websites and i stumbled upon this gem. I just got into this whole fragrance addiction recently - (really random story on how i got...
