I love this stuff! It was a Christmas present a couple of years ago, but I tend to reach for it more in warmer weather. We are having an unseasonably warm month of March here in Boston and I have been wearing this every day.
It seems that I am in the minority here, but I love the bottle. Very elegant and sleek.
The missing lippie is because it doesn't seem to last long on me ... am I the only one? The smell seems to fade to nothing within an hour or two. Sometimes I can smell it on my clothes the next day, though, so maybe my nose is going blind a bit.
Happy spring, everyone!
i love it - when im in the right mood for it. i have noticed it smells vastly different on people, like many perfumes do. but the "old lady" commentary makes no sense to me - it looks clear that young women love it as well as older. i do feel i like it most in cold weather, definitely, and in small amounts. anything piled on tends to stink lol
Got this one for Christmas. So nice and easy to wear. I love it!
very nice powdery scent, I really like this but I do think this is to close to Liz Claiborne's Curve Crush and that is much cheaper.
This is by far one of my absolute favorite fragrances. It is so perfectly named too! I tend to reach for this during the cold, winter months as this fragrance really does make me feel all warm and cozy. It's elegant and perfect for nights when you feel like snuggling up with the one you love.
I just love love love this perfume! HG! I knew I had to have it when I took a whiff of it in a magazine about 4 years ago. The words that come to mind when putting this perfume on are delicate and comforting and the rich vanilla note really lingers. Pretty long lasting on the skin, and in fact, I can still smell it on my winter scarf from last year. This is my favorite DK scent and I will continue to repurchase. The only thing that bothers me is the bottle shape/design, I wish they would update it.
Starts off painfully (literally) sharp and strong, but dries down into a warm, velvety, not-quite-clean skin scent, like I showered before bed and spent all night burrowed under the covers. It has a sweetness with a slightly bitter edge, like icing roses on a birthday cake, that I enjoy. Reminds me of VS Endless Love. The fact that the initial spray nearly slew me and that I prefer more ostentatious tropical floral scents means that this isn't for me, but I understand its popularity.
Something went wrong here. I ripped a sniff sample out of a magazine and instantly fell in love. It was just the right mix of dry woods, vanilla and musk with an ethereal airiness that one doesn't often come across. Then I went to the mall and sprayed it on my skin. What is that, wet diaper? Ugh. Too bad. I so wanted a bottle of this.
I read all the reviews and then saw this product for $50 at costco...I was ready to buy this unsniffed. It sounded perfect. But I decided to wait and, surprise surprise, I got home to find a sample card tucked in a flyer in the local paper. Excitedly, I ripped open the sample and enjoyed a sniff. Then I felt nauseaus. Then I started to get a headache. So, I tucked the sample under the kitchen sink to neutralize the smell of the garbage. But I could still smell that stinkly little strip. So I recycled the paper. Still I could smell it and my stomache was turning like you wouldn't belive. I had to put the strip outside!! And still I could smell it went I walked into the kitchen; I have never had that kind of adverse reaction to a scent before. Headaches sure..but this smell physically revolted me. I have no idea why but I am sure glad I did not buy a bottle!!!
Cashmere Mist is beautiful, baby powder for grownups. I think the most ravishing thing about it is the salty note in the base.
CM manages to combine a salty sandalwood, a very delicate musk, a feathery spine of jasmine and vetiver, a brushing of suede, and a beautiful coat of powder (probably the orris). It's subtle, natural smelling, and yet there's something inherently sexy in there.
Bill Blass Nude is a smellalike, but has a somewhat bitter note my nose picks up as tuberose. Crown Tanglewood Bouquet is BB Nude taken to an extreme, but also has that powdery/creamy quality CM has.
I've tried a few formulations of CM. The worst thing I could say about it is that it has intimate sillage and doesn't have the most amazing lasting power. On the other hand, CM has hit the frag oil duplicators. The dupe out (and everyone has the same one, even if they're claiming theirs is unique) is not the closest in the dupe genre, but it is close enough that you could use it to scent a bath, or lotion, and it will extend/amplify the real thing a bit. But basically, CM will never hit the discounters at a significant markdown, and will never go on sale - it has a largish and devoted following. The extendor products are amazing, especially the deodorant.
Cashmere Mist is one of the few fragrances I'd pay full price for, and I wouldn't let the fact that lots of women buy it bother me. It's subtle enough to smell just a little different on everybody and it's a perfect fragrance for the office, for when you don't want to smell like you're Wearing Perfume, but do want to smell "nice," and for intimate situations where noticeable scent is too much. It's totally a Your-Skin-But-Better frag. The packaging is gorgeous, and it layers beautifully. Draped over a leather, or dusted with vanilla, or Egyptian musk, it moves in beautiful directions.
