    Re: 'Sickly' fragrances

    I had this reaction to Ava Luxe's Love's true bluish light - I don't think the vanilla/amber combo sits well with me.

    Re: The most "bohemian" scents you know?

    I don't think I'm a diva at all, in life or in scent - I have enough of an interest to devour these boards every day, but I tend to shy away from the glamorous scents, or those that are loudly...

    Divatologist, I'm going to use your method when I shower in the morning and I hope it works - if it can give Bvlgari Black any longevity at all I'll be a convert to your ways!

    Re: Ava Luxe Experience - Autumn / Winter Edition
