  1. Re: Dolche & Gabbana - the one - Essence - de Parfum

    Bloomingdale's (and Sak's) in NYC has "the one - Essence."
  2. Re: Dolche & Gabbana - the one - Essence - de Parfum

    I am not certain it is limited edition. The salesperson who said it was limited edition was way off on his opinion that Essence smells pretty much like the one. So he could be way off about it being...

    Re: CK Eternity Now

    Got a sample today from Sephora. They had just got this in. I love how it smelled on the card (and on the bottle) so I am hoping my girlfriend will like it.
  7. Re: Need Help - Recommend a Fragrance for a Man and another for a Woman

    I'm surprised no one recommended Eternity Now. I finally had a chance to smell it today and I like it a lot! Got a sample that I'm going to give to my girlfriend. Hope she likes it.

  10. Re: Terre d'Hermes vs. Terre d'Hermes Pure Perfume

    How about buying? OK to buy from amazon (amazon, not 3rd party sellers.)

    Unfortunately, Sephoras in NYC smell so strong the moment you walk in the door that you can't smell anything in there.
