  1. Re: What do you choose for "extreme moods"?

    I don't have anything yet for extreme moods. All the stuff I have is warm, soft, florals. Nothing extreme there. I think extreme for me would be something involving a lot of musk. I will let you know...
  2. Re: Setting a fragrance limit, planing my "wardrob

    I have one fragrance that I didn't bother to list, because in my mind it doesn't count. *My aunt used to wear a FANTASTIC fragrance...and I have been searching for it my whole life. *She can not...
  3. Re: Setting a fragrance limit, planing my "wardrob

    I love roses, but only certain types of rose fragrances appeal to me. *The two I have right now are about the only rose perfumes that really impressed me. *I DID like Paris EDP though. *I was torn...

    Re: Awful bottles--form/function

    I don't really care for the bottle that "212 Sexy" comes in. I just think it looks stupid. It reminds me of a pill. Having to twist the fragrance out is just unpleasant. I like more traditional...

    Re: How limited are limited editions?

    It sounds like one big fantastic marketing scheme. :) I don't mind limited editiosn that only come out during a certain season. It usually takes me a year to go through a bottle of perfume anyway, so...
  7. Re: 212 Sexy...a better choice for me that Chanel

    Soft? Really? I am normally really into soft scents. Most of the perfumes I have bought so far just vanish on my skin. I find that 212 sexy lasts a bit longer. It might be soft, but compared to what...
  8. Re: 212 Sexy...a better choice for me that Chanel

    No, I didn't see that one! If it's wonderful also, I will have to try that out before I make my final purchase. I really love Carolina's stuff!
  9. 212 Sexy...a better choice for me that Chanel

    Hey!

    Yesterday I was back at the mall (I pass there on my way to work!) agonizing over Chanel's Chance and Coco Madmoiselle. *They had the mature, *yet age apropriate, aura I was searching for,...

    How limited are limited editions?

    Hey guys!

    In my quest to fill my fragrance wardrobe, I have come across quite a few fragrances that the sales clerks tell me are "limited editions". What does this mean exactly. I snaped up some...

    Wow, thanks Audrey!

    It never occured to me that the fragrance notes might be different. How interesting. They should both smell very different then. I will head over to the department store and...
  14. Re: Buying Perfume,Eau de perfume,or Eau de toille

  16. Buying Perfume,Eau de perfume,or Eau de toillete

    Hey guys!

    I am confused why which to select (Perfume, Eau de Perfume, or Eau de Toillete). I know that basically Perfume is strongest and lasts longer, followed by Eau de Perfume, and then Eau de...
  17. Re: La Perla's Charm Vs Kenzo's Flower (red bottle

    Is Charme only available in Canada? I am surprised that no one has smelt it yet. The guy at Holts told me it was exclusive to them, so maybe it is not widely heard of. It's too bad, because I really...
  18. Re: Pheremones under perfume? Rip of or great idea

    I don't think pheremones are suddenly produced when you are trying to attract someone. I think they are always just there. <shrug> Who knows though. I can't find enough infromation on them to speak...
  19. Re: Pheremones under perfume? Rip of or great idea

    Hmmmm....I am of the mind (so far) that if pheremones were great, then a lot more people would be using them in comercial perfumes. What I have read is that even when they are used in perfumes, the...

  22. La Perla's Charm Vs Kenzo's Flower (red bottle)

    Hey guys!

    I have a bit of a dillema. I was at Holts the other day, and I smelled a new perfume called Charme by La Perla. I instantly loved it. The man behind the counter gave me a free sample to...
  23. Re: Will body cream help the scent linger?

    I have a small sample of the body lotion, and I tried putting that on first. Even the scented lotion absorbed right into my skin. It's hard to imagine that this fragrance really doesn't last long on...
  24. Re: How can perfume online be so cheap???

    Hmmmm. That makes sense. I wish us Canadians had access to a reasonably priced online perfume store. The best deals are in the US. What I find difficult, is that if something happens and you have to...
  25. How can perfume online be so cheap???

    I can't figure it out. I had a bad experience with ordering perfume online, so I sent all my stuff back, and went and paid full price at the store for what I wanted. Well....a bottle of Kenzo Flower...

  27. Re: Will body cream help the scent linger?

    I will try wearing some of my other new fragrances and give your advice a try.

    I DO like how Bvlgari is unobtrusive. Wearing a very loud, in your face fragrance, would not be appropriate for the...
  28. Re: Will body cream help the scent linger?

    Thanks so much! Yes, one does learn an awful lot here. My skin is very dry. Especially now that it's winter. I rarely bother to put lotion on my skin, but now that I know that it effects the staying...

  30. Will body cream help the scent linger?

    As some of ou know, I am really enjoying wearing Bvlgari right now. I find that the scent doesn't last very long on me though. Infact, it quickly goes from pretty to nothing. I can barely smell it...
  31. Re: Bvlgari line....what am I smelling???

    Bvlgari Omnia is certainly captivating, but I can't get over the strange "pee" scent that I am detecting. Maybe it is just the tea smell, but I don't think I personally could wear this fragrance. I...
  32. Re: My perfume arrived...and it's "off"

    I know that perfume can keep for years, but there is a time limit. I would rather purchase a perfume that was recently made, rather than something that has been in storage for two years. This is just...
  33. "Just got out of the shower" scented perfumes

    Hey there!

  34. Re: Bvlgari line....what am I smelling???

    Bvlgari perfumes do go on fairly light. I both like, and dislike this at times. I enjoy a perfume that is not overwhelming, and is soft. I love Bvlgari SO much though, I wish it were a little...
  35. Re: My perfume arrived...and it's "off"

    I went to our local mall, and paid full price for the perfumes I wanted. I just can't stand to wait another two weeks before I can wear them. I was SO upset after spraying that oily perfume all over...
  36. My perfume arrived...and it's "off"

    Fragrances are funny that way! You think you LOVE something at first, but when you have to smell it all day, it becomes a bit much. I think vanilla type fragrances are things I will have...
  40. Re: What do you wear to a business meeting?

    For me, the fragrance I wear in the office is Chanel's Chance. I am really drawn normally to flowerly, sensual perfumes, but I don't like to wear that kind of stuff to the office. Chanel is perfect...
