A beautiful rose scent. First the saffron, then the red rose and vanilla and sandalwood. Very soft and lovely. I wear it often.
Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances - Tea for Two [DISCONTINUED]

It smells like Chai tea with an artificial note somewhere in the middle of it. I won't be buying a bottle.
I used to like this one, but lately it's harsh and artificial smelling. It is something I want to scrub off, but it's not that easy to get rid of. Disappointing to say the least.
Oh dear. I sprayed this with great anticipation but after smelling the soggy end of a cigar that my grandfather smoked left in an ashtray smell, I knew all was lost. Oh well, I have my Chergui to console me.
I bought the body creme and edt today at Nordstrom. I love them! The texture of the creme is very nice. It's a fun and feminine kind of fragrance and the bottle is so cute. My only complaint is that it isn't long lasting enough.
Tolu is a stunner. The most beautiful fragrance. I get compliments when I wear this. Here are the notes: Top notes: juniper berry, orange blossom, clary sage. Middle: orchid, moroccan rose, muguet. Base: tolu, tonka bean, golden frankincense, amber. This will always have a place in my collection. I have the edp and will probably get the parfum soon.
This is a delicate beauty. I just received this for Christmas in the edt. It lasts longer than I thought it would! Very much orris and vetiver on me, with a leather note that fades after awhile. It's even a bit spicy. It's a very cool and self-possessed kind of scent, very different from my beloved orientals, but a welcome change all the same. Edited on 12/24/06.
This is the olfactory equivalent of chocolate mousse. It's delicious but just too rich.
This fragrance gets so many positive comments, I just had to try it. But on me it is literally putrid. Is it the oakmoss or the vetiver or the combination of the two? I don't know, but it smells rotten. edited to add: I just gave it to my mom and it smells wonderful on her! I wish I could wear it.
This doesn't smell very good on me, in fact, bug repellent smells better. Why did I waste my money on this?!
I used to sort of like this. But now it smells good on me for several minutes and then gets really annoying. It smells fake. I never get the tuberose, just pineapple and hazelnut. It doesn't change on me either, and it lasts and lasts.
I wanted to wear this, the scent is delicate and would be good for summer. But there is something in it that gives me a stomach ache and I agree with the reviewer that said it is artificial smelling. It is just too synthetic, although I like the smell that they were trying to evoke.

Tones and gets my skin ready for the moisturizer. These Almay 1-2-3 products are great! Non drying and non-irritating, but refreshing. I hope Almay continues to make these products!

Cleansers -Almay - Cleansing Lotion 1 for dry skin with cucumber

I'm always relieved when I can find products to use on my face that don't cause a reaction and this doesn't! It takes my foundation off and leaves my skin feeling fine, and not tight and dried out. I hope Almay continues to make this!
