I could not resist writing a review. I am no expert at writing fragrance review so I'm going to do my best. I'm kind of still stuck in the 80s and for some reason my number one fragrance if I had to choose just one would be vintage poison. I have not yet after trying religiously found anything that works better on my skin then vintage poison. Now the rest of my perfume collection consist of mostly summertime Citrus type of smells because I kind of like perfumes on both ends of the spectrum there. I keep on trying the sweet ones that smell like candy and while they smell great in the bottle they don't don't ever project on me at all. This is no exception. I bought a sample of this one and it came today and I cannot stop applying it and then obsessively smelling my wrists. It smells so good and yummy. But like all sweet smelling perfumes like this they don't last on me. I think it's something to do with my skin because no one else seems to have these issues. After spraying that's on my wrist it lasts for about 40 minutes it's before there's no trace of it at all. A half an hour after I put it on the first time I asked my boy to smell my neck to see if he could smell it and he smelled nothing. He's 12. So while it is incredibly beautiful and delicious and I want to smell like this I can't really achieve the goal personally. Not unless I plan on reapplying this perfume every hour. So even after saying all these things I'm still considering purchasing a full size bottle just because it's stunning. It is the best smelling thing on earth. It just smells like everything delicious is that you would eat at a fair. I smell caramel strongly and a cotton candy scent and it's just incredible. I just wish that it projected on me and lasted on my skin. I'm about to make a trip to TJ Maxx since everyone's talking about finding things like this for cheap prices. Maybe I'll get lucky. I have been getting pretty nice deals on fragrancenet.com. seems like I have a continuous flow of orders coming in from that website. Right now I have a bunch of stuff in my cart then I'm trying to narrow down. I don't have much shopping availability where I live. While there is a TJ Maxx there is no Mall in the middle of the mountains of West Virginia. Therefore most everything is a blind buy

Jasmine heaven. I like how it stays on your clothes ALL day long. People will notice you when you have this on so be prepared lol. I tend to not wear it a lot for that reason but it’s out of this world good. A more gentle, daytime friendly version of this would be ysl black opium.

This is a heavenly incense/amber/myrrh bomb and is so delicious I had to just go and buy a backup. The jasmine is not as pronounced in this one as in other versions of Alien---so it has less of a grape soda feel and more of a rich syrupy grown up candied dessert feel. Yet, not really gourmand. But...on the verge. The vanilla and cashmere wood give it a cozy warm ambiance, and this EDP is STRONG. A little goes a long way and you don't want to overspray. That being said, it's one of the few that I let myself sometimes spray with abandon because it doesn't give me a headache, regardless of the heavier notes. Just a lighter hand in the warmer months. I even love the bottle---but my only regret is that I have never actually come across anything larger than the 30ml. Regardless, it's a winner.

Not for the faint of heart. I guess my love of this is due to my association of being in Santorini and Dublin on my honeymoon so perhaps I’m biased. But if you love a spicy and bold vibe, this is your jam. I love the intensity when I first apply it as well as the lingering scent the next day. My other go-to’s are Chanel coco mademoiselle (more so in the winter) Burberry Brit and Clean Smoked Vetiver.

This is a fun, flirty, wine-centric fragrance. The opening is pure red wine, a real grapey one with a hint of tannins that make it very like a rich Cabernet Sauvignon--I think this effect is achieved beautifully by pairing the grape/wine note with the pepper and rose. The litchi note is there, but only to add a hint of sweetness and softness to the whole composition--rather than leaving it astringent and harsh on the skin. Of all of the Mugler "Innocent" offerings, this is by far my favorite...and although LE, it will always have a place in my collection. A++Notes: litchi and grape liqueur, rose, black pepperThe juice inside the bottle is even a deep rich red wine shade.
