I went to my local Nordstrom's Fragrance Festival this afternoon and the fragrance that won me over was Bvlgari's Au The Blanc Parfumee or *White Tea*. What a beautifully light fragrance. I pretty much found my summer fragrance for this year. Speaking of notes in this one, I get a teensy bit of pepper but it mingles nicely with the white tea. At first spritz it smells just like a cup of hot tea with a little bit of cream and the steam rising above. I love that smell and that is what it immediately reminded me of. I am smitten with this one. I bought the set and the lotion is wonderful also.
An absolutely heavenly honeysuckle scent. I'm head over heels right now over this fragrance. It's perfect.
Very well done fragrance. I love this one.
The most AWESOME foundation I have ever worn. I usually wear Laura Mercier's Oil Free Foundation and then I use her translucent loose powder to finish but this new Silk Creme Foundation drys matte and you do not even need powder. Love it.
This a great fragrance and much better than the original Prada. It's softer and much more wearable to me. The drydown is gorgeous and good, good lasting power. I agree with some other posters that this is slightly reminiscent of Coco Madamoiselle. But Prada Tendre is better in my opinion because it's not so in-your-face as the Madamoiselle is.
Fruity Vanilla :( . Unfortunately on me,those 2 main notes are NOT a harmonious union. I did give it 2 lippies though, because I think the bottle is really pretty.

One of the best vanilla scents out there today. This vanilla is one of my favorites. It's a solar/sunny vanilla and very feminine. I do not find this sugary at all. Plus, the bottle is very cool.
This is the only Patou I can wear. It's a beautiful scent and lasts all day long on me. I only gave it 4 lippies due to the fact that it's pricey.
Just sampled Hypnose this past weekend and I love it! Good sillage - I could smell this the next day. And, my husband who usually is not into fragrances is urging me to buy this one as soon as it comes to the stores this week in the U.S. The bottle is beautiful also.

I really love this foundation. It is kind of a weird looking liquid before you blend it but once you put it on your skin and blend it in, it looks great. Good coverage also. For me this foundation works great.

Due to super sensitive skin, I was recommended this line by a member of MakeUp Alley. I have been trying it out through samples and I really like it. No irritation yet whatsoever. Good coverage and good customer service. I highly recommend ordering samples if you are interested in this line.
Yuck! On my skin this perfume was horrible. Very cloying and offensive. But, I love the bottle.
I actually like this scent and it works well with my chemistry. I get alot compliments on it. Very pretty and light.
Luch, fresh, and kind of watery and green at the same time. I am very fond of this perfume and I find it to be perfect for summer. Very pricey, so I suggest you shop around online (wish I did) instead of buying it in a shop/boutiqe.
Bad! This was really the worst fragrance I have ever smelled. I spritzed it on and I thought it smelled like chemicals. Thank God it has no staying power on the skin. I returned it to Sephora the next day.
