    Sephora is good for samples...if you can find a representative to give them to you. I have been in my local Sephora probably 30 times in the past 3 months and have received samples ONCE. They tend to...

    I recently purchased a pack of samples from the Phaedon line, and Noir Marine was a pleasant minty surprise. It smells a BIT like toothpaste to be honest, or a really good gum, but I liked that. The...

    Re: Cliche Prom Question

    Hi Leipzig! If you are considering Le Male, I would suggest only a couple sprays max. I like it, but it can be extremely overpowering!

    Re: What We Wore as teenagers?

    You are all so fancy!

    I wore the typical fruity, juice-like fragrances; Ralph and Tommy Girl. Gifts from my parents, as I had no taste in perfume at that age. :wink:

    Re: What does cumin smell like?

    Yes. If you want an interesting cumin scent, try Al Oudh by L'Artisan. Prepare yourself for a blast of armpit! :wink:

    However, one of my closest friends loves the smell, each to their own!

    I liked this one very much.
  14. Re: What scent has garnered you the most negative comments?

    I sprayed a sample of English Fern, much to my friends' displeasure. I received feedback that it smelled like "old man" and "bug spray."

    Re: Best perfumier

    Oddly enough, I tend to pick out an Olivia Giacobetti scent as my favourite without knowing they were created by her. She's right up my alley.
