Fragrances -Donna Karan -Cashmere Mist Eau de Parfum

I’m usually a sweet perfume type of person but this smell is so comforting. It’s powdery and vanilla smelling but in no way sweet. The EDP lasts quite a long time and I’ll still get whiffs of it many hours later. I wish they would change the bottle because I’m not a fan of the design at all and the cap doesn’t shut securely, but I will deal with it as i see myself wearing this scent quite often.

I can see why this is such a popular product! This keeps me 100% dry all day, even when I’m sweating heavily under my wool sweaters in my hot office. Also, the smell (which I love) lasts all day as well. Your armpits will be smelling like cashmere mist even 12 hours after application. The only thing I don’t enjoy is how dry the formula is and kind or drags against your skin, but it does not crumble so it’s not that big of an issue.

This is a very "safe" perfume. Something that I like but don't actually love. Well, it does smell fresh when I first spray it on, but after it dries down, the smell kinda morphs into something artificially sweet and coy.

I don't get much from Black Cashmere, just thin incense on a cold woody base. Interesting in theory but it didn't "speak" to me.

Not a bad fragrance but nothing special imo. Fresh non-offensive light scent that I just get bored of very easily. I had a rollerball of both the green version and red version. Didn't care for the red one at all, the green is the one that I liked. Not terrible but not for me, would not repurchase.

This has become a new top favorite fragrance for me! Definitely not overpowering, smells delicious, and lasts all day. I recommend purchasing the box set with the shower gel, 3.5 fl. oz, and fragrance travel roller. You can find it in any TJ Maxx, Ross, Marshalls, or on eBay/Amazon for about $50-$55.

Ideal for work, going out for fun, conventions, or an elegant soiree/wedding.

Yes, I would, and did, buy it again but then returned it - why? The price went up by $10! Huh?! Why?!

Statistically, luxury brands took a major hit this past year and suffered one of their worst economic years due to ... well, consumers becoming more intelligent. My point? Increasing the price for this deodorant wasn't the "thank you" customers deserved. I love/d this product and accepted the indulgence. Admittedly, as another user claimed, it lasts long but, as the price continues to increase, justifying $30+ on a deodorant is questionable when I can spend that same amount on other associated costs, such as a nice dinner and memorable experience. Of course, to each their own.

When/if I find it on sale (as some have mentioned) then, yes, I'll definitely repurchase it. But when our (already expensive) drug store sells it at $10+, I say, no thank you.... and wince. Because I love it :(

And then hate my contradicting self because I know I'm going to buy it again, and again, and hate myself every time because of the cost. Argh!

Gosh, I love this perfume so much. The initial burst is pretty polleny. Like smelling the center of a flower. You almost wonder if bees are going to envelop you. I immediately thought dandelion or bittercups or something. But it settled down after a couple minutes to an incredible honey-vanilla, soft white flower scent that I revisited again and again. I literally could not stop smelling my wrist. It is that fabulous. While sillage is not great unless you really douse yourself in it, the longevity is pretty fantastic. The store gave me a teeny sample, but I knew that would only last me a minute and the big bottle was in my immediate future which i now own and its so cute with the little bees on it and the bottle is in the shape of a cute little honey comb. I noticed it said solar notes and this truly is sunshine in a bottle. Thirteen notes seems like a lot (way more than any perfume really should have) but they marry so well it is not overwhelming or muddy. Just the perfect perfume. And such beautiful packaging. Beautiful little perfume. Donna Karan releases the best scents.

I love the perfume bottle, it's gold with a black cap. The reason I bought this fragrance is because I was told it smelled like a fresh cut Lily. While it does have a lily note it is proceeded by this rancid grass scent that throws the whole thing for me. Might pass it along to my sister or something, because this definitely does not agree with my chemistry.

I've used this for about 5 years. It's a great product and I will continue to purchase. It just works well as both a deodorant and an anti-perspirant. The one con is that it does leave white marks inside of my clothes (90% of my wardrobe is black). However, it washes out well.

I don't love the smell of cashmere mist as a perfume and wouldnt wear it, but I do like this scent in a deodorant.

Price: $27. However, you can find it on sale - Nordstrom usually offers a deal for a pack of 3 during their sales, Sephora has their VIB/BI sales, and you can often find it at the cosmetic company outlet stores.

Fragrances -Donna Karan -Be Tempted

on 11/5/2017 1:22:00 AM

Be Tempted is another great fragrance in Donna Karen's vast array of Be Delicious line of fragrances. The dominant note is red 🍎 of course. I actually have some red apples and i ate one a little while ago and Be Tempted really does smell like red apples. There is a licorice note in the fragrance as well which gives it a kick of spice. When it is first applied it is very very sweet. Syrupy sweet actually. Similar to those bottles of syrup sweeteners that are used to flavor shaved crushed ice drinks. The syrupy sweetness goes away after it dries down and the beautiful red Apple comes shining through like a beacon of light. Like all the other Be Delicious bottles its round in the shape of an 🍎 The bootle of Be Tempted though has a snake curled around the top of the cap. I guess representing the serpent that beguiled or "tempted" Eve in the garden of Eden. Its a pretty fire engine red color too. Its a very unisex scent kind of leaning towards masculine so that adds an even deeper meaninig to the name Be Tempted i think. Great addition to the line.

Fragrances -Donna Karan -Woman

A Good Quality Vetiver-Centric Fragrance that is Completely Misnamed

Donna Karan Woman is a completely misnamed unisex fragrance that possibly leans toward the masculine. It all depends on how one views vetiver because Woman is definitely a vetiver-centric fragrance just like Chanel Sycomore although Sycomore has a smoky note that Woman does not.

Woman purportedly also has notes of sandalwood, orange flower, and other floral notes, but I mainly detect a very fresh, green, airy vetiver. Occasionally, I am able to detect a fresh citrus note reminiscent of freshly squeezed orange juice, but it is somewhat muted. I do not detect either sandalwood or other floral notes. Woman is classified as a floral woody musk, but I would describe it as a woody citrus.

Anyone who is interested in vetiver as a note should definitely try Woman. Woman has moderate projection, sillage, and longevity. It is appropriate in virtually any venue, too. An added bonus is the unusual bottle which looks like a piece of modern sculpture one might find at MoMA. Unusual bottles seem to be a Donna Karan trademark, and Woman is no exception.

I have awarded Woman two lippies (I would award 2.5 if I could do), but that is only because vetiver is not one of my favourite notes. I find Woman much more wearable than Sycomore, though. Whereas Woman is a fresh, green, airy, and slightly citrusy fragrance that I could imagine wearing almost anywhere at any time, Sycomore is more of an "experience." I cannot imagine wearing Sycomore anywhere I would normally go. Moreover, whereas I find Woman to be unisex, I find Sycomore to be much more masculine. Let your nose be your guide and decide for yourself.

I use the Fresh Blossom version of this perfume. I've repurchased this so many times I've lost count. I think this would be my signiture scent for a few reasons I never thought this would be the one but I love this scent so much. I love the rose in this I am one who likes roses in my perfumes and this smells so good with the apple, cassis, grapefruit and I love the Jasmine in this. I never knew it contained it but I've always been attracted to white florals so it makes sense that I would love this. I don't get the woody accords to me this is just fruit and flowers and on me I love it.

I get so many compliments from both men and women. I've been wearing this for years and have branched out into other scents but I always come back to this and I'm glad because it's a perfume that makes me feel good. Fresh blossom is uplifting, cheery, and a great spring/summer fragrance. I like the packaging and the price is reasonable. I even got my mom and sister wearing this. Be delicious fresh blossom is such a good perfume to me. I wish there was an oil as I love it that much. Will continue to repurchase. :)

This is such a soft, powdery, feminine fragrance. It's also a warm scent but not too warm, it's hard to describe. Appropriate year round for me. I admit I don't love the dry down on myself as much as the scent in the bottle and it does smell a bit better on others than on me. This is an issue with me and I'm hoping it changes because I do love this scent. It reminds me of my mom a bit, this isn't a bad thing, it's a comforting scent. I adore the bottle even though it does look a bit dated. Would repurchase.
