This is a subtle, my skin but better scent on me. It is faintly sweet and sugary, but the spices and carnation temper it from becoming a sugary mess. It's not a diva night-out scent, but a beautiful, cuddle and watch a movie one.
I adore this! I love to spritz this own before bed for some reason; I find it an instant mood lifter and a cuddly comfort scent - my DH loves this as well!
This is indeed a cuddly, serene scent. It was initially very vanilla on me, then faded to the woodsy base and blended with my skin after about an hour when it was skin but better. I wish the vanilla stage lasted longer, but otherwise this is perfect!
I think this scent could be more appropriately named "orange juice" or "orange slice" because it is a sweet, orange, almost orange tic tac scent on me. However, it is quite pretty and innocent at the same time.
This is one that I reach for when I want to feel more powerful or confident. It is usually too masculine on me, but occasionally this does the trick.
I love this scent! It is a superb blend of gardenia, light flowers, vanilla, and nag champa incense. The oil last a LONG time on my skin. It is more appropriate for an outdoor day at the beach for me, than for a day at work.

This is sweet sweet sweet! The pear scent is overpowering to me. I like the idea, and would enjoy a candle in this scent.

I like this scent - pleasantly light and airy. It put me in a feel-good mood. Yes, the bottle is different for sure, and the price is a little ridiculous, but I will re-purchase another sample for summer I'm sure.
This is a great summer scent - I feel relaxed and transported to the beach in my mind when I spritz it on! Fabulous rendition of ambergris... I love the saltiness!
I so wanted to like this, but the notes did not soften on me, and the scent lingered at work in a bad way. I felt a little like a jar of potpourri walking around.

This is a lovely feel-good fragrance. I think it's a bit too sweet for me now though, and I enjoyed it more a few years back. However, it is nice and cheery from time to time. The florals are blended really well to me.
This was my signature scent my senior year in college - it's innocent and somewhat transparent. I like to spritz it on now to go back in time, but I don't reach for it every day anymore. The light musk drydown is quite lovely.
This is my pick me up fragrance. For some reason, I feel myself lifted and energized by the citrus. The later stages of this scent are my favorite though - it feels very comforting and also subtly sexy to me.

I'm loving this! The saffron is present in the opening and slowly fades to a nice blend of spices. I feel transported somewhere warm and exotic - and during the New England winter, that is just the thing I need!
This has a "bad girl" quality to me that I don't think I can pull off. Secretly I liked to smell this on myself, but I would not wear it in public.
