I wear this myself...I prefer it muchly to happy for women. The first time I smelled it was when I was walking to class...one of my guy classmates had it on, and I had to ask him what it was, it smelled so wonderful! It is just a really clean and fresh scent. Clean in an orangey citrus way. It is hard to explain, but it smells differently close up and far away. Like it has different dimensions that hover around it depending on how close to it you are. It isn't manly either...like a stereotypical man's cologne, because it isn't dusky or anything, just light and sparkling! It's cheaper than the woman's version too!
This perfume oil smells just like violet candies. It is slightly sweet...not at all a sour-ish or green. Just light purpley sugary violets.
This roll on is fantastic. It smells very accurately of warm milk. It captures that sweet smell that warm milk has when you heat it up in the micro and perhaps stir in a little honey before you go to bed to help you sleep. It is subtle, and definitely not overpowering. So far, it has lasted pretty well on me. I wish this scent was easier to find. I am going to have to conserve it. Gosh, this is just LOVELY! I LOVE THIS STUFF!!
I tried a sample of this fragrance from a sampler packet. It was very strong, and it had that strong biting perfume scent, that wasn't pleasant to my nose at all. It is the same element of pink suede that I didn't like either. I couldn't really smell much of the smell... all I could get was that strong perfume scent. It doesn't die down and fade into a soft scent... at least this tester didn't, but I had to run and wash it off of my wrists. Not for me.
I received a sample packet of this. It was very strong. It smelled sort of pink if I can describe it with a color, but it was too strong. It had a smell that was way too sharp and perfumey... and this sharpness did not fade into a pleasant scent at all. I can't comment on the packaging because it was a sample, but I wouldn't buy this for myself... just because it wasn't me at all, and it smelled too much like a strong acidic perfume.
I received a .5 oz flip top bottle in a swap. The packaging is really cute. From the first sniff under the top, it smelled lovely. Like freshness, softener sheets and just clean things :) Really nice and snuggly. When I sprayed it, it had a strange sort of smell... like licorice. I know that sounds weird, but it does!! It does settle down though, and when you get a whiff of it, it smells great. I'm trying to conserve my bottle. I would definitely re-purchase it myself. It has a fair lasting power. Probably only a few hours, but I'm not too sure since I didn't use that much of it... and I get so used to the scents I'm wearing that after a while I don't smell them anymore. That could be it. It smells nice if I spray a tiny bit on my pillow before I go to bed. All in all, it's a great product! I would definitely buy it for myself!
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Smackers in Bubble Gum

This one smelled like typical pink bubble gum. It was sort of nice though. It was a shimmery pink in the tube, and it didn't really go smoothly onto my lips. The shimmer was actually gritty. It didn't taste like anything.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Smackers in Raspberry Chocolate
linneaflower 3/15/2003 3:37:00 PM
This came in the package with a keychain sort of top. It smelled pretty much like raspberries and chocolate. The color in the tube is a sort of dullish grey color... I didn't really like the look of it, but it did go sheer on my lips. It smells like a lot of the other bonne bell berry flavors... Lol. I don't know why they call them flavors instead of scents, because they just don't taste like anything at all!
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Smackers in Berry Heavenly
linneaflower 3/15/2003 3:33:00 PM
This is one of the lip smackers that comes in a with a glittery blue wrapper. The actual gloss is blue in color, but goes on lips without any blue tint... which is a good thing :) Many people complain about the shimmery lip smackers being gritty... I have experienced that, but this one isn't gritty at all! It goes on smooth, and feels smooth on my lips. It doesn't have a taste. It smelly berry-ish... when I think about it, it sort of smells like the raspberry chocolate smacker, but they have so many berry scented things it's no wonder that they all smell similar!! I would definitely buy lip smackers again... but in another flavor... just because I love trying new ones out!
Fragrances -Smell This - Cake Batter roll-on essence
linneaflower 3/14/2003 1:18:00 PM
This roll-on has a great scent. Very vanilla-y and nice... I can definitely get a cake battery drift from it. I liked it much better than Demeter's sugar cookie PMU. This one is much more weareable, and it LASTS. I put it on last night, took a shower, and even after that, I could still smell it on me! Then I put some more on before bed, and I could smell it when I woke up :) It lasted me through a whole day of school too... lol, I think you get the point :) It really reminds me of this Swedish vanilla sugar my mom uses when baking... instead of vanilla extract. Delicious!!!!
I didn't really like these. The size was nice and big, like a glue stick, but these come with little balls filled with oils inside of them, and it's not like they burst on contact with your lips or anything. Everytime I put it on, I got little balls on my lips. Having black or red bals on your lips is not the greatest, so every time I used it, I had to do it infront of a mirror, which wasn't worth it, because I like being able to use chapstick straight up where ever, whenever I need it. I will only buy it again if they stop putting those balls in them.
My grandma gave me a half full bottle of this, so of course I treasure it. When I smell it I think of her...becase it is what she smells like. Opium is a very strong scent. Sort of powdery in the way that Flower by Kenzo is, but much much deeper, and not as light. Sort of woody. It is a mature perfume for women. I wear it only on special occaisons - that's how it works best for me. One spray goes a very long way! It's great.
This is a very elegant perfume. I used to use it for every day, but now I feel it goes better for special occaisons or nights out. It is a very strong scent, but not overbearing. Very pleasant. Not musky. I think it smelled a tiny bit florally. Very feminine, and deep. It's nice to have.
I love this creme! I use it every time after I shower on my whole body and face. It has a soft scent. It's hard to describe. This is a very rich and thick creme. It works great on dry feet. It seems like it would be greasy, but I use it on my face under makeup, and my face doesn't get dry at all throughout the day. My mom swears by it too... even my brothers use it on dry spots! The only thing I noticed is that it is sometimes hard to find in the U.S. It is extremely popular and easy to find in Europe though. It rocks and can be found in a blue tin in lots of sizes.
Skincare - Body -Tommy Hilfiger - Tommy Girl Lotion

This smells different from the eau de toilette.... sort of the same, but distinctly different. It has different shades to it... and is not as complex as the perfume, though it is very strong. Just using it alone (no edt at all), I can smell it throughout the day... wafting from me. Use it with the edt, and it will stay all day. It makes a nice addition to the edt... but it really isn't necessary I don't think.
