How delicious is this fragrance? I LOVE THIS! Hubby likes it a lot too :). This is so yummy, appley and warm. I so love it whenever I sniff this on him :).
This is one of the most fantastic iris fragrance I've come across in the LONG long time. A real keeper! Soft, powdery and delicious!
Cloying, uninspired and just plain unattractive!
No I would never need to buy this product again, that mistake I've already made once! Oh and much like the previous reviewer I am mad at myself for this whole thing... This is just the worst of the worst patchouli scents I've ever come across and for that same reason I can understand why so many LOVE it. This is so deeply earthy mingled with green and that is just the kind of a fragrance I do not go for. I like my patchouli but this is just wrong... all kinds of WRONG!!!!!!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Paul Smith Floral EDP
Goddess_Dreams 1/28/2007 8:12:00 PM
This is neither here nor there... It did not leave a very memorable impression on me, nor did it leaving me wanting to sample it again. This is a pleasent enough, non-offensive fragrance that anyone could wear and even get a few compliment on, but only because compared to the lady that wore something that gave you a headache the day before, this is heavenly!
Initially this fragrance reminded me very much of the same kind of velvetiness that I sniffed in Paul Smith London. Both are ravishingly beautiful but I still prefer London over Velvet; in the drydown Velvet loses some of it's charm and beocmes more suitable for those who love and wear Red Door the original. While I don't mind the original Red Door, I just wouldn't wear it...
Fragrances -Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Perfumes - Eau de Mure
Goddess_Dreams 1/28/2007 3:05:00 PM
Eau de Mure notes: brazilian orange, bergamot, blackberry, blackcurrant, celery, clove, tonka bean, sandalwood, amber.... Those notes sound fantastic! I want to love this scent based on those notes, I really do... Blackberry in fact is one my favorite fruits after all, and I do love musk! But, what's happened here? Is it that added celery note that did the naughty thing here? Because I surely like all those other notes listed above. Sadly however, there is no amber here, at least not the animalic-sweet and uber-sexy amber I adore. This is a slightly more musculine scent, then I would like to wear myself, but my hubby was not a huge fan of it either... This is just not special enough for either of us to ever want to buy...
This just has got to be one of the very best amber fragrances ever orchestrated. Today I've finally had a chance to sniff it and could not leave the store without a bottle to call my own. "A true amber fragrance radiating from the center surrounded by notes of geranium, patchouli, vanille, tonka bean, labdanum, sandalwood, musk, & cedarwood." It opens deliciously sweet, animalic and even a little leathery. This has phenomental lasting power and hubby tells me that sillage is really nice as well. Drydown is mouth-watering... if you like amber this could be the one. My only complaint, as already noted, is that the cap is completely and utterly useless and does nothing to protect the sprayer from spraying wastefully when you throw this in your purse - this really breaks my heart!
This is a one delicious buttery/creamy scent. It's a true waffle cone and I just love it. Staying power could be better, but I'll gladly re-apply to hang on to and enojoy this sweetie.
Fragrances -Giorgio Armani - Armani Code for women
Goddess_Dreams 1/20/2007 11:37:00 PM
Armani Code is a pretty interesting fragrance. The moment I tried it I knew that I would want a bottle eventually, and now I have one. Funny how eventually it also started to remind me of TM Alien, (and I really like Alien), but sadly it does not have the longevity or sillage of Alien (this I don't really like that much). All in all Armani Code is fun and easy to wear, receives complimets often enough and never fails me, as it's perfect for any occasion. This is yet another Armani I really enojoy!
Sadly to me this is neither chocolate nor hazelnuts... I was hoping I would get some creaminess and milk chocolate scent in this, scent with a name like Chocolovers should smell chocolaty, and a fragrance with notes of hazelnuts and with a name like Chocolovers should smell like Nutella ;), but all I from this fragrance was orange, orange and more orange. Even when it dried down, still no chocolate in sight; and while this is not an altogether bad fragrance there is nothing that special about it either. I really like Pink Sugar however ;).
"Beautiful will always remind me of my grandma. I bought a bottle of this oh about 9-10 years ago and while visiting my grandmother in Europe she fell in love with the wonderful BEAUTIFUL smell... Of course I gave her the bottle right away and during my 8 week visit with her this was all she wore... My grandma much like myself was a great lover of wonderful fragrances and for her to have fallen in love with Beautiful will always leave a very special place in my heart for that gorgeous fragrance. I have not worn Beautiful since that summer, but nevertheless I will always keep a bottle in memory of a very beautiful woman, who taught me the joy and pride in being a woman... Now from time to time I open my bottle and spray in the air and I remember the way my grandmother smiled while wearing Beautiful... The real beauty truely comes from within..."
Songes intoxicates with its lovely white blossoms: creamy, rich and lush. Notes of Frangipani, Absolute of Ylang-Ylang, Absolute of Jasmine and Absolute of Vanilla are marvelously blended seamlessly to evoke a sensual and ultra-feminine feeling. Songes lasts a long time, even in EDT form, and has an amazing sillage; it wears as fabulously in the heat of summer as in the crisp cold wintry air. The most amazing thing is that when I wear this is the warmer climate Songes takes on a wispy caressingly gentle voice that whispers charming little secrets only lovers share. But in the icicle-laden, snow-blanketed settings that’s where Songes takes off her golden gossamer gown and decidedly seduces and pronounces herself the Queen of Snowflakes. Most definitely FBW!
Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances - Safran Troublant
Goddess_Dreams 1/15/2007 4:21:00 PM
Well, well, well, now I too know what it's like to have a scent that now you smell and then two seconds later "poof" and it is completely GONE! Where did it go? I'd love to know! But my, I love it so much, why did it have to leave so soon? This is ridicilous, I mean I sprayed it on, no joke a good spray I gave it too, but I'm talking within minutes (I was still at the L'Artisan counter and it was GONE - not slowly withered away - GONE ALL AT ONCE WITHOUT A TRACE). But, oh while it was there, for that charming special moment that it lingered on my skin - that was wonderful. I would have paid any money had it lasted only a touch, but my chemistry made NOTHING out of this. While it was there however, magical it was!
Fragrances -Paris Hilton - Heiress by Paris Hilton
Goddess_Dreams 1/15/2007 2:15:00 PM
Let me preface this by stating that I do like the first Paris Hilton fragrance, but this one on the other hand is really a big disappointment. The thing is, there's nothing 'special' about it; even the sweetness that's louder then loud is over-the-top and fake and let me tell you, I like sweet! Ok, so while I'm at it, I'll also confess that I like Pink Sugar and Fantasy too, but Hairess just does not work. Last night my sister and I both tried it and all we got was a pretty shampoo scent. It actually started with a little more promise then it delivered in the end. I thought it might go from a jammy sort of dark sweet to maybe some bubble-gum (oh what, I like that bubble-gum note ;)), but none of that happened, all we got was shampoo! This might work really well while vacationing somewhere tropical and only for the hair. Ohhh boys love pretty smelling hair so I suppose this has its purpose and a market too.
