Found on Ebay because I love the scent and cannot get it from BBW. Sadly, it's the best gentle volume shampoo I've found and I was Pureology all the way! I really like the conditioner as well. I've tried multitudes for volume but this one really works well--hotel sizes are all that's available. I have to wonder if BBW uses a better formula for hotels than they did in the stores and online? I found no problem with my auburn color, but sure wish I could buy a big bottle of it and condition, instead of decanting from all those 1 oz. bottles. I said expensive due to ebay selling them so high priced.
I read it was good, liked the gold tube (packaging sucker) but the plastic brush is worthless. I use the med for lashes and they are long but not thick and I don't find this helps for any fullness. Just darkens what I have. Not worth the money, even if it's cheap. Or the single rating, tried to leave a zero.

Great swapper gave me a chance to try the gradual tanner, and I love the results, if not some of the other things. I have a hard time getting a regular "tan in a can" to a darker stage without streaking, and the gradual lotions are the answer! Great gradual color over 3 days of use and it doesn't even mess up on joints and feet. Nivea's coffee odor is what put me off, along with the gel feel of the "lotion". As a swimmer, I need moisture and Nivea didn't seem to deliver on this score either. I was traveling and needed space, so I ditched it and bought Jergen's and I love it. (and Jergen's has SPF 20)

FINALLY! a tanner for those of us who hate to take the time to make sure the cream is VERY even to prevent streaks and who cannot put on a second coat without streaking. I had avoided the "daily" gradual tan products figuring they'd not work well---swapped for Nevia's(sp) and liked the results, but not the coffee smell. Tried jergens' NO smell, love that. Then it does give good moisture which I need since I am a swimmer. But the gradual color is fantastic. Even colors my hands, top of my feet, elbows, ankles and knees without extra stain! I'm in LOVE. I do remember to wash the palms of my hands (not the top) to make sure that area stays ok, but the rest is wonderful. Add in that it has SPF 20 and I use on my face and neck to protect me when gardening. At 10 bucks it's not Cheap, but I've gotten a bunch of uses and still have half a tube left. Give it a shot, it's worth it!
RIS and am grateful that I didn't pay for it just to get the bottle. Bottle is amazing but juice leaves a great deal to be desired. Eh, just like all the sweet, non-inspiring scents so many of the celebrity names put out. At least it wasn't fruity and I didn't get all that vanilla on dry down..
Well, I remember loving the package on Opium, but not the juice. I sprayed this sample on and thought--where do I know that from? It's not That generic, but, but..... It's taken me several hours and a couple of sprays, but I finally got it! Flowerbomb! That's what it smells like. Not bad, just not better. Or worse. Just the same, to me.
I haven't found one yet I liked---till this one! It was awsome for all of THREE minutes! Too bad and of course, I'd not buy it, thank goodness RIS>
Meh---another kiddie, fruity, alcohol smell., not scent, smell. Not for me, obviously. LOL
Lovely little scent that has a bit of sweet floral hidden away to come out and sorta grab you as it dries down. Unfortunatelly, it only lasts about 2 hours (being generous here) and until then is lovely. Gave a low score since it's so close to the skin and lasts so little. It's inexpensive enough to reapply frequently but I just don't have the time and it's not that special to go to the effort.
A very generous MUAer swapped with me for this scent. I didn't hold out for it to be very good -noting the reviews, but I do love Calandre, so thought I'd give it a try. Wow! Love this. No floral here, at least not that my poorly educated nose can identify, but I love the woods and a little kick there. Haven't looked up the scents used but that's what i get. I have the mini with no spray, so cannot comment on the bottle, except the idea is beautiful, if not practical. LOL, this one is certainly worth a check to see if it's for you. I'm VERY mature and go for rich and elegant scents, so maybe that is why I like it. And with an older person's dry skin, I was very pleased that it lasted about 5 hours or so on me.
Ahh, for a gal who Hates dirty, smelly armpit scents, I found none in this scent. It Was smooth and very girly on me and I loved it. Only problem was: lasted about 1.5 hrs. and at that price I couldn't afford to spray again. Thanks to a lovely swapper, I now know what all the talk was about but it's not in my future. that's why the 3 lippies--too expensive and doesn't last.

While sitting in the swing on my daughter's cottege's front porch, I smelled something VERY sweet. Hmm, no flowers here, no ---wait, the shrubs are blooming! And they are amazing! The morning and night air are filled with green sweetness. I had never been around blooming privet and I'm a gardener! This fragrance is just like the early morning fragrance I smelled out on the porch drinking that first cup of the day. Too sweet to wear all the time, I'm fleur-oriental in my choices, but nice to wear to bed or to seduce my husband into thinking we're both younger than we are! LOL
Fragrances -Viktor & Rolf - Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose

WHAT ROSE??? I smelled no rose, only men's aftershave with too much alcohol. I just couldn't get past the aftershave. And no, I wouldn't like it on my man. He wears Lagerfeld. Much richer and doesn't make my skin burn (ok, not really).
Held my breath waiting to try this before I bought the bottle--so sure I'd love it. Bought first sample ($6 !!) What a waste! It's the sad lighter version of Flowerbomb. As noted below, very close to the skin, and lasts an hour or two. Just goes to show, try before you buy. Have a Flowerbomb min and that will do me for a while since I rotate my 'fumes.
I go floral, oriental, with some kick. This is skanky to me. I guess they call it a "dirty" note. I don't get oranges, leather, or any of the things the great noses below offer. Just arm pits. Not for me. No thanks.
