    Re: I just bought M7 blind

    The first 10 minutes of wearing M7 leave me hating myself and the world, then the next 6 hours leave me falling in love with both. What a ride; I can't wait until the cold weather gets here so I can...
  2. Re: Tough Decision: Need a Single Travel Fragrance

  6. Re: Tough Decision: Need a Single Travel Fragrance

    I'm going to a Model United Nations conference in San Francisco next weekend, and as we're just carrying on luggage, I only have room for one fragrance. It will be four long days spent in a suit,...

    Most "designer" skincare products use horrendous ingredients (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is very common), and as such are not recommended for everyday use. That being said, I picked up a container of M7...

    Re: Rose 31 - Le Labo, What is going on here?

    Out of curiosity, how did you apply it? I notice that, per its website, this fragrance does not come in an atomizer; so do you splash it on, or decant it into an atomizer and then apply?

    Re: YSL M7...Heaven Scent (or purgatory)

    Re: A scent just for me...Tommy Bahama

    I really enjoy wearing Tommy Bahama; found a bottle of it for cheap at TJ Maxx, and I just had to spring for it. Smells fairly similar to John Varvatos, but is just different enough to be noticeable.

    Just blind ordered it off the Varvatos website. I have big expectations for this, as the original JV is easily in my top 3 fragrances. Will give at least some sort of a review once it gets here.
