  1. Re: Looking for a clovey carnation ladened fragrance

    Yep, I can confirm that there is plenty of carnation and clove in this one! I am testing it out today. Worth a stop by your local Anthropologie, if you think you might enjoy a spicy carnation scent...
  2. Re: Actually heard someone say "old lady scent"! About a Tauer!

    There is so much wrong with using "old lady" as a derogatory or dismissive term that I hardly even know where to begin when I hear it used. I don't see the term with its current connotations falling...

    Re: My mom needs a hands cream, help please....?

    I have a friend who swears by Hemp Hand Protector by The Body Shop, and she's converted some people to using it too. I've tried a bit and I have to say, it's some extremely effective stuff! Very...

    Re: Nail Polish of the Day

    Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Hot Cocoa.

    The formula on these Rimmel's is fabulous but I'm not really feeling this color on my pale hands - it looks fabulous with deeper skin tones though.

    Re: aluminum-free antiperspirant?

    I switched to non-aluminum deodorant a few years ago and haven't looked back. My body adjusted to it pretty rapidly! Even though they are not antiperspirants my body seems to have toned down how much...
  6. Re: New Fragrance: Illamasqua Freak Extrait de Parfum

    I wonder if this new formula smells much different than the original... which was a resounding 'blugh' to me. Too bad, because the bottle design and marketing have been fabulous.
  7. Re: Visa by Robert Piguet AND Peach frustrations,thoughts

    Wow, this thread is really making me want to try Visa. I love, love, love a good peach note, especially if its couched in some darker, deeper notes. I have never seen it in stores but I think I will...

    Re: Summer Orientals!

    I immediately thought of Bulgari Omnia! The soapy citrus tea notes add a clean feeling. You'd think that aspect would be at odds with the chai-spiced creamy woody oriental notes, but it works! Pity...

    Re: New Fragrance: Lady Gaga Fame

    Saffron can have a bit of a medicinal or metallic twang in some compositions, and certain takes on honey can be a bit "carnal" smelling... I wonder if those notes popped up as a way to call back to...

    Re: Today I Bought - June 2012

    Got Kenzo Amour Indian Holi today... it was practically a steal, but cheap as it was, it's still a waste! Reminds me very, very strongly of HM Magical Moon. Perfectly serviceable scent, but it...

    Re: fave scents for a positive/uplifting mood?

    If I want to amp up the energy and perkiness I often reach for something bright and sparkly, with citrus or other fruit notes. But if I'm feeling really "down in the dumps", I am more likely reach...
  12. Re: Which perfume from the house of Annick Goutal should I try?

    I've only tried four AG fragrances, and Songes and Le Chevrefeuille are really beautiful but decidedly feminine. Charlotte was interesting but ultimately left me cold... I could smell all of the...

    Re: Comfortable, outdoorsy colognes

    Ooh, lots of other new fragrances to explore. Thank you, everyone! The only one I'm familiar with is Yatagan, but sadly it was too much pine, and a bit on the aggressive side to my nose... definitely...

    Thank you for the welcome and the suggestion! I'll try to check out Chergui, especially since I had my eye sampling on a few other SL scents for a while now.

    Hehe.. we don't necessarily need to...

    Re: Best feminine tuberose fragrances?

    Carnal Flower is tuberose perfection. For a tuberose lover, almost certainly worth the splurge.

    Annick Goutal Songes is a creamy, dreamy tropical jasmine/tiare/vanilla/ylang/wood confection, but...

    Comfortable, outdoorsy colognes

    Hi everyone! I am new around BN, but not new to perfume... I've been a bit of a fragrance junkie for at least four years now! However, I never seem to run out of questions...
