I really love this intense moisturising eye cream, it has a slight firming effect also, this is great if you have very dry under-eyes. It is very expensive, but it should last a long time, you need so little, and you don't have to keep replying or feel dry again after an hour. A lot of eye creams that I have used over the years, left me dry, soon after, even those expensive ones, and I have tried the inexpensive ones as well, I tried many eyecreams, lol. The only other one that comes close is Shiesedo's (same company) Benefience eyecream.

I really like this fragrance! It's sweet, but not cotton candy sweet. I thought I was going to smell like a cupcake, but I don't, it is more complex than I thought! I get compliments on this too, and it lasts fairly long on me. I have the body lotion also, which is very rich for a lotion. Very nice. If you like Pink Sugar (I do), you should definately try this! But you have to like sweet fragrances!
I am always excited when I find a fragrance that I like with incredible lasting power, this is one, I get a bitter sweet almond, woods, and a spicy vanilla in the mix. I don't get rootbeer or the playdoh note that others mention. This fragrance is very sexy also. Glad to have gotton a decant in a swap. FBW for me.
I really like this fragrance! I get a definite chocolate note in this, not too sweet like Angel (I love Angel btw!) and a champagne note. Overall very nice for an Avon Scent. It is definately not too strong but lies close to the skin. Comforting and it seems perfect for this cold weather we're getting right now. I was lucky to receive a bottle of this in a swap. Before receiving this i never heard of it! I hope there is a body lotion to layer with this! If anyone could recommend one, please e-mail me!!!

This smells like a cheap fragrance to me. Too much of a bubblegum note also. I have smelled worst, but glad I got samples. Will not purchase. So many better ones out there.
This is the most unique complex tubereuse fragrance I've ever smelled. I was lucky to get a 15 ml. decant in a swap, and I am loving this fragrance, from the opening to the end. It does have a menthol beginning, then it keeps changing, and evolving to the most unique of tubereuse perfumes that I ever had the pleasure or wearing. Definately full bottle worthy if you can find it....
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Japanese Cherry Blossom EDT

This is just a flat, boring fragrance! It doesn't do anything for me. Even though not expensive, I would not waste my money on Bath & Body Works fragrances. I do buy some of their lotions and creams to layer with my other fragrances that I have at home, Red, that old 80's fragrance (I know) is cheap and it is so much better than this fragrance! I mention Red, because to me it smells of spicy cherries! AND it lasts a whole lot longer.
I tested this fragrance in B&BW and I liked it! However it fades really fast, and it is just too light for me as ALL their scents are. It would be a waste of money, even though it is not very expensive. I'd rather pay a little more and have a longer lasting fragrance. There are so many vanilla fragrances out there that are better than this.
This is a pretty, soft fragrance, and I do get that toffee note on my skin, but this has "0" staying power on me, I don't even smell it after a few minutes. Glad to try a sample spray, but no sale for me.
I was lucky enough to get a decant of this in a swap. I remember when it was being heavily promoted in the early 90's. Never tried it! At the time I was promoting too many fragrances and working for too many companies. Glad I got the chance to try this soft, alluring fragrance! It has a slight similarity to Eternity, but it is much better, (never liked Eternity). It is a warm, smooth, soft, creamy fragrance with orange blossom, lilac, musk, amber and vanilla. Lasts a decent amount of time on my skin. FBW for me.
I love this fragrance, I ended up getting a sample in a swap, I had to e-mail her to find out where I can buy this! It stands out to me, lasts a very long time on my skin. It has cardamon, rose cinamon, orange blossom, caramel and vanilla/chocolate in it. Smells very classy. FBW.
I was expecting a rich fragrance when I tested this, the name doesn't suit this very bland forgettable fragrance. I like Pure Turquoise and Glamourous(disc.) much better than this one.
I hated it then, I hate it now, and I am no perfume snob. This fragrance is absolutely horrible. One of the worst of all-time. Red, by the same company is very nice and totally different than this one.
Bath Treatments -Estee Lauder - Youth Dew Bath Oil

I love this oil. It wears like a perfume. I put it on when I get out of the shower, some on my neck and wrists, and it smells wonderful. I have received compliments on how good I smell. Great for Fall/Winter. I like it better than the spray! Reasonably priced. I think I'm going to buy the dusting powder to go along with this! You can't find too many dusting powders to go along with fragrances today. You know I get compliments on the cheaper perfumes more than some of those niche ones.
I was sampling a bunch of new fragrances in NYC Saks last week, and I came across this fragrance in the Tom Ford blends. I didn't think I was going to like it. Anything with the word tobacco in it makes me think of cigerettes or cigars, why would I want to smell like that! I don't like Furmerie Turque. Anyway, what the heck, tried it and loved it. It's kinda sweet, spicy, woody, vanillic. Doesn't smell manly either, (it's unisex). Oh a new love. This would be great for the Winter and cold weather, also comforting and sexy smelling at the same time. And on my very dry skin it has impressive lasting power. Will sample it again before I lay down the money for this. Maybe DH can get me a small bottle of this for my birthday in Dec., lol.
