    Re: How many sprays do you use on application?

    I've just noticed recently that men tend to go heavier on the perfumes/colognes than women do. I find the men in my life drown out my scent because they are so heavy handed, and in any gathering I...

    Re: What are your 3 favorite scents and why ?

    #1 Diorella: a perfume critic once described the smell of Diorella as a "new fur coat rubbed with very creamy mint toothpaste" (or something like that) and I think he got it exactly right. This is...

    Poll: Re: Do women like the scent of Old Spice?

    This was the first fragrance I ever wore (I'm female), cadged from my Dad's bottle at the age of 13 or so. I'm surprised to hear it was originally formulated for women. Makes sense now. I still like...

    Re: Your 1st Scent

    Splashes of my dad's Old Spice as a teenager (and I'm a girl). My first real perfume was Chanel no. 19. Maybe I bought it because I was 19 at the time, I don't know. But I still remember how...
  8. Re: Please help 21 year old female find a sig scent for everyday!

    You're 21? You're grown up. Go for the L'Artisan line, sample everything, and find one you like. They are so distinctive, you won't smell like any of your peers, and you will be completely...
  9. Re: 48-year-old woman seeks recommendation for daily scent!

    Get the 19, get the 19, get the 19. I only wished I was a boardroom diva so I could pull this one off in public. It is to die for.

    Re: My mini review of the perfumed court.

    TPC is particularly great for testing samples of stuff you'd never find in the department store: vintage perfumes like Mitsouko or Chanel 19 or Rochas Femme, stuff that's unavailable except perhaps,...
  13. Re: Have you ever worn a scent you thought was great...

    Angel and Clinique Aromatics Elixir. I loved them both, but they're like those love affairs everybody else immediately recognizes as "trouble," so I totally understand the negative reactions. I...

    Re: Today I Bought: August 2010

    L by Lolita Lempicka. I can't believe it. I didn't like this rootbeerish concoction when I first sprayed it on, then wore it again yesterday and fell into raptures. Is it because I'm on a diet,...

    Re: Which is your favourite L'Artisan?

    Just had my first introduction to L'Artisan this week -- with Nuit de Tubereuse, and I'm blown away. I've never smelled anything quite like this -- maybe the closest thing in my collection is Bulgari...
  16. Re: Which perfume with rose and which with vanilla?

    I never realized how much I loved rose until I tried Lumiere Noire Pour Femme (Francis Kurkdjian), which I fell head over heels in love with at first sniff, the sexiest rose I've ever smelled. But I...
