This chapstick smells like vanilla scented tobacco.It moisturizes my chapped lips really well, but I cannot get past the smell; it literally makes me nauseated.
On me, this smells like a cheap magnolia candle.

Light, non greasy , and does not break me out. My teenage daughters use it too, with no break out problems. I only apply once a day or every other day. An ideal moisturizer.
Beautiful scent! Neroli is bright, green, orange, soft and so real ! Unfortunately, I have not found an Annick Goutal fragrance that adheres to my skin well enough for me to buy a bottle. If I did, I would be hooked. However, this scent is so fresh & wonderful, I will always keep a sample vial of it just so I can enjoy the few moments of beauty it provides.

Nice summer fragrance, but unfortunately, it does not last long on my skin. Smells a lot like Elizabeth Arden Green Tea , but I think Embalming fluid is a little less sweet, which I prefer.
BPAL 's milk note hates my skin! This fragrance sounded wonderful in it's description, but I cannot wear it at all. On my skin it opens with the scent of white linens / paper and roses, which isn't half bad, but then it turns into a weird baby slobber, band-aid smell upon the dry-down.This is definitely a personal chemistry problem, because this has happened with other BPAL oils containing a milk or cream note (candles moon ughh disaster).

I buy this foundation in buff, the second lightest pale shade, and I like the yellow undertone it has instead of the horrid pink undertone many other pale shades contain.I also have sensitive skin & this never breaks me out. The lasting power is pretty good & I love the anti-aging ingredients. For the price and benefits I think it's a pretty good choice.
Really soft fragrance. Dry-down reminds me a little bit of Champs Elysees ( both have benzoin, and vanilla listed in their base notes), I gave this to my 15 year old daughter & she really likes it, and I think it's a nice perfume for her age,as I prefer something a bit more complex.
I love this product! I hate most fragrances used in lip products, but I actually like this one,which is a nice vanilla scent. My favorite quality of this product is it's moisturizing abilities. I have even put it on a night before going to bed, just to get the moisturizing this lip gloss provides; in fact I haven't found a lip product that works as well. I have mirage, a nice gold glazed neutral, and a coral shade ( forgot the name) that I didn't really care for.Overall, it's a great conditioning gloss, that I will continue to buy for the inoffensive smell and moisturizing benefits, even if I have to stick with sheer neutral colors.
I love this! It is so different than everything else I have. I wanted a perfume that smelled like incense (but a sweet incense not over the top smoke), so I ordered some nag Champa oil from Ebay & it was horrible (did not smell like nag champa)! I found a large bottle of Shalimar in a thrift store on sale for $ 2 (wow)!!!! I am so surprised; this is the warm incense smell I was after( more romantic than nag champa would've been), with creamy vanilla mixed in. I like to slather on some vanilla lotion post shower(bbw shea), and then spray this in my hair(post drying): purrfect!!!! EDIT: I LOVE this perfume, and wear it all the time...pulse point sprays = hot stuff!
