I'm trying to decide which perfume to buy from Ava Luxe next: Heart of Glass or Madame X?
I'll put up a poll-vote for your favorite. Thanks for your help everyone!
I am not afraid... I was born to do this.

madame X !
For sale. Carnal Flower and Vero Profumo Onda.
Just out of orneriness I'll say Heart of Glass!
But really I reckon you should try No 23. How's that for being mean and nasty and messing with your head?
Seriously? I've smelled both and they're both lovely, but very very different. HOG is white flowers while Madame X is dark, animalic and sexy (though not over the top).

I did not vote as I have never smelled Heart of Glass, but I love Madame X on my wife!
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
Definitely Madame X
I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
I think it's seasonal too. HoG is more for warmer weather, MX for cooler. However, I tend to give Mad. X a bit of an edge overall.
Madame X is an oriental while Geart of Glass is a floral, so for me they are heard to compare. It comes down to whether one likes sultry orientals or sultry florals.
For me, I'd go with Heart of Glass
But I also love woods, so I am struggling between Heart and Moksha
HOG! The floral will be nice for warmer weather.
Ethereal Delights: Alien, Black Orchid, Magical Moon, Noa, Anisia Bella, Hypnotic Poison
Sporty Fruity Florals/Sweet Playful Goodness: Creed Spring Flower, Be Delicious, Nina
Another vote forMadame X. BUT if you haven't tried #23 or Chypre Noir, get samples. I would love to bring back Mousse de Chine (Moss). It was supposed to be a lovely green chypre. (sighs)

Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
I love Madame X, but I don't think I could bring myself to wear it in hot weather. The animal in it might come out with claws bared! Actually, I wasn't won over by Madame X the first time I tried it. But the second time I loved it so much I ordered a FB.
I just ordered a new bottle of Love's True Bluish Light for the summer. It should arrive any day. Can't wait! I am hoping to sample #23 soon. I've read so many good things about it.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!
I I was never able to get a sample of Heart of Glass.
Anyone have a ml or 2 to trade for another ? I have several small samples of other Ava Luxe, including Love's True Bluish Light.
PM if you are interested.
P.S. I love Midnight Violet.
I think I'll buy Madame X right now and Heart of Glass next time. I was really looking to find out which was the sexiest. I think that must be Madame X. I even went so far as to ask Serena (Ava Luxe) which she would say was her sexiest. She said Madame X and then Heart of Glass and Pikaki next in line. Has anyone spoken with her before? She is just so very nice! I love the personal attention she gives, it makes the buying experience more enjoyable. I buy her handmade gemstone jewelry too. Now I'm wishy-washing back and forth again! Now I'm thinking that maybe heart of glass would be better for the warmer months, it's starting to get humid here. Hells bells, I can't make up my mind!
Oh flarp! I forgot to tell Wordbird her gelfling is darling! "Gelfling", I love that word!
Thank you to everyone who voted. Madame X won by 80 percent, so I went with that. I'll buy Heart of Glass next round. Thanks everyone!
