I got this in a sample. It's all right, but not a favorite of mine. I know this is supposed to be *the* marine scent, but it's a little too blah to me. In terms of marine scents, I have to say my favorite would be Cacharel Eau d'Eden.
I wish these weren't in pots, but otherwise I love these glosses. Spirit is my favorite. It looks bright orange in the pot but goes on in a lovely sheer coral. I have red hair and fair skin and this looks great on me. The candyish smell is pleasant enough, but I do tend to prefer unscented lip gloss. I like that these aren't very goopy/sticky, though.
I love this scent! I discovered it in college and have worn it ever since. It is a citrus cologne blend with a hint of rosemary to give it a little "bite". I think this is one of the best crisp citrus scents I've ever tried. I love it on hot summer days!
This is a pretty summer perfume. It starts out as a light floral and then dries into a nice vanilla-woody sort of scent. I was afraid it would be too heavy, but it just seems to have a rich summer night feel about it. Very nice!
I normally love classical florals, but this one just doesn't do it for me. I'm very picky with gardenia scents and this one is just too cloying. I know it's popular, so I would definitely say this is one where you really should try before you buy!
This is a nice floral, floriental scent. I just have a sample of this new formula of Lalique. It is not as heavy as the old formula was, and some may like the lightness of it. The downside is that it doesn't last so long and to me at least, this one is a little "blah". Not a bad reformulation, but not anything I'd rush out to buy.
I tried this one at the store again and I really tried to like it, but I just can't. There's something about it that is too cloying and sweet on me. I like Angel Innocent, but Angel is just too much! I think it's because I loathe patchouli unless it is used in moderation and well-blended. Edited to change rating to 1 lipstick after trying Angel again at the mall. Made me feel almost claustrophobic!
I really love the Demeter scents! For a while, I only had Sugarcane (still my favorite). Since then I've added Holy Water, Heather, Greenhouse and I have Sandalwood on the way. Some of them don't really last all that long, but I've noticed that a few (sugarcane, heather) do have a bit more staying power. These single note scents have a subtlety to them that I really like, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good, light cologne.
I got hit with this at the mall, and it really is not me. Something in it was just too sweet and the spices blended with the tuberose made it a bit too heady for me. It seemed to get creamier in the drydown and that made it seem to get even heavier on me. For a tuberose scent, I think I'd prefer Fracas or Pavlova. This one is just too much!
I really like this spray. I only gave it a 4 because it doesn't last nearly long enough The scent of flowers (a faint hint), plants and water really does remind me of a greenhouse. This scent is very fresh and I use it whenever I'm starting to feel a little draggy. It definitely energizes me!
I just have a sample of this one. I probably wouldn't buy it, but I'll definitely finish off my sample. It is warm and spicy, and I can see why a lot of people like this one. I like the spiciness, but it's just sweet and heavy enough that I think it would get on my nerves if I wore it too much. That's why I only rated it a 3.
I love this scent! It is citrusy and light for summer, but not fruity-sweet like a lot of modern citrus scents. This one has floral and green notes that give it a little more depth and the scent is very distinctive. The greens also add a slightly acidic quality to the scent which make it spakle on the skin. This is one of the first fragrances I ever bought for myself and I've worn it for almost 10 years. Definitely a keeper!

I read a review for this powder here on the board and decided to try it since I was looking for a better powder. This one gives a great matte finish without looking too fake or settling into my face in an unflattering way. The color I use is Fair and it works very well!
This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite lotions. It is nice and thick and very moisturizing. The almond scent is gorgeous as well. Instead of being too sweet like a lot of almond scents are to me, this one has a warmth and a depth to it that is quite pleasant. Highly recommended!
What a gorgeous scent! This is a very delicate floral, but stronger on me than a lot of Demeter scents. It has a very natural floral scent and I could almost imagine myself out there on the moors among the heather. The perfect thing to wear whenever I'm having one of those "Victorian heroine" moments. I tried this one on a whim, knowing nothing about it, and I'm glad I did!
