    :) Yeah, My teen years were in the 80's, I wore what were considered huge scents for a timid teen (Obsession, Poison and practically bathed in Shalimar), I still like the strong scents but will try...

    Re: Tom Ford virgin......

    Got back from the TF sniffing excursion, I have to say the Black Orchid scared me a little from just sniffing the bottle but I was brave and squirted it on my left wrist. I usually try a perfume a...

    Tom Ford virgin......

    Headed to Sephora to try out a few Tom Fords, I've seen them perched on the shelves forever but never even sniffed the bottles. They will probably be too powerful for my personality as I am a fairly...

    Re: Perfume that smells like blush

    Now I have to go smell a CG blush! As long as I never run into a perfume that smells like L'Oreal lipstick I will be a happy camper. ;)

    I'll use the citrus oils (EO's) from PA as examples: on their site they list Lime can be used up to 15% and IFRA says 0.7%, Grapefruit-USA J. Steele has no percentage listed, IFRA says...

    Re: Perfume that Men love the most on Women?

    I would NOT buy BB blind at all, it is such a "different" scent, it actually took a bunch of sniff trips to Sephora to try it again and again before I actually liked it. It does have the rubber note...

    Hi PK,

    I am putting in an order for more FO's for soaping for Christmas gifts so I will probably mess around...
