Reminds me of a lighter, more powdery Chant d'Aromes. Probably not a coincidence since these two scents came out around the same time. Very nice for Spring. Can be found reasonably on Ebay on at Estate sales, etc. athough a previous poster said it was in a current catalog. If so, kudos to Avon for preserving and bringing back some of these classic scents from time to time.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose

Classic rose scent with massive staying power. I also detect a jammy sweet strawberry note underlying the roses. I've tried layering this with other scents when I want to add a rosy note, but it always takes over. Maybe I will try decanting, daubing. A great bargain and a little goes a very long way!
To my nose a higher quality, more upscale Charlie. Definitely a 70's or early 80's fragrance. I dont do well with galbanum so this is not for me.
I acutally don't think this product is all that bad. It is a long wearing matte product, so you need to use a lipliner and apply very carefully, because it will be there for the rest of the day! Stayed on through coffee, candy and pizza with soda. I really like the deep reds, such as garnet. I would buy again, at Dollar Tree its a small investment for a very good lippie.
Wonderful scent, like others have described below, a real powerhouse earthy, leathery, spicy wonder. Reminds me of Gorgio Red, but without the sweetness and with a healthy dose of leather and animalics. I will wear this often this winter.
Nice, light, lemony oakmoss. I bought the Chypre EDT and lotion. This is a chypre that could be worn for day, to work as it is subtle, lemony fresh. The oakmoss and patchouli is there, but very light. I also love the Art Deco bottles and will save them when empty just for display.
Kind of a green rosy scent, but not too green. Nice, would buy or swap for again.
A more powdery, less aldehydic Chanel #5, too similar to the latter to buy a bottle of Vega. Nice, though.
Nice aldehydic floral, dont really pick up on the spicy notes...reminds me a lot of vintage Arpege, and while Maja is a nice scent, I have enough vintage Arpege that the Maja would seem redundant. Nice blast from the past, try it if you like that sort of thing.
This just wasnt "dirty" enough for me. Didnt smell like dirt, but more like a forest after a rain, green and fresh. I dont go for fresh scents, so will swap my bottle.
Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand - Profusion 100 Color Pearl Eyeshadows

I bought this palette at Walgreens for $5.99 on a Christmas promotion. It is a great value, the shadows are pigmented and silky. I'm sure this palette will last me a long time. I would definitely buy another palette from Profusion.
Reminds me a lot of Chanel #19, a great lower cost alternative. Try if you like Chanel #19.
Reminds me of a more powdery, lighter Bellodgia. Very nice, vintage scent, which reminds me of times gone by. Would go with a drapey, flutter sleeve thirties style vintage dress to be worn on a warm summer day to a garden party. Other reviews have covered the notes well, so I won't go into that. Perfect if you're in a feminime vintage mood.
I find this to be a great product. I use it when I put my hair up in a French twist and I can comb thru later, which is what it promises and thats what I want. I do think it is a bit expensive for a ds product, but I bought the big can & it should last for a while. As for the smell...yes there is some, but since I wear perfume almost everyday I dont notice it that much. All in all, a worthwhile product, does what it promises and I would buy it again.
Fragrances -I Profumi di Firenze - Tuberosa d'Autunno

White flowers, yes. Tuberose, certainly. And then, the incense kicks in, and this is what sets Tuberosa apart from other tuberose scents I can't tolerate. This is what I wanted Chanel #22 to be like. Great for a summer incensey fix. I'm so glad I gave this one another try, I will be seeking a back up bottle.
