Love this fragrance! I'm currently using this every day and nothing else.It's a gorgeous, very feminine, lush floral with just a hint of fruit and woods.Initially it smells fresh, bright and heady and makes me think of spring garden in full bloom.The dry down,which I love even better,is whisper-soft and clean,smells almost like some expensive fragrant soap.The staying power could be better,but the smell lingers on clothes beautifully.The bottle is very pretty and has that greek goddess feel to me.I think this can be worn any season and everywhere.
I ;ve been using Revlon Colorist in dark brown for over one year with no problems at all, but lately it's getting harder and harder to find(I wonder if it was discontinued?)so l decided to try Perfect Ten also in dark brown.I figured it was the same shade ad couldn't go wrong,plus the idea of coloring my hair in just 10 minutes attracted me.Oh how I regretted buying this!The smell was awful,like some very strong rancid soap,it almost made me sick and it stuck to my hair for a long time,torturing me.The conditioner smelled actually worse than the haircolor.My hair instead of dark brown turned shoe polish-black,so now I have to spend more time and money and remove all this horruble black dye out of my hair.Absolutely disappointing crap.

I smelled this in the magazine and was instantly reminded of many other fragrances I smelled before,the likes of Betsey Johnson and Ralph Wild.It's very intense,juicy,FRUITY scent that is very young,a little masculine and pretty generic.Must be quite strong and lasting,because the smell lingered on my hand where I rubbed the page long after washing it.
The description sounded so scrumptuous,I was sure I was going to love this,so I bought it even though the packaging was ugly and very junior high.It smelled good in the bottle,but once I sprayed it the smell overwhelmed me.It's way too sweet and cheap.Looks and smells like something a very shallow teenage girl would wear.The name is stupid,too.I returned it to VS.
I am surprised at all the negative reviews.To me this smells delicious,sweet and fruity,and not cheap at all.One of my fave Fresh scents.

I like this smell,but people around you often mistake it for food.One time somebody asked if something was baking,and other time when I spritzed it on some little boy nearby wrinkled his nose and said,''eew,what is this stink?''And I can't smell any apricot at all,just plain vanilla.
This is one of my favorite BBW edt's.Yes,it does smell a little cheap,but for a price like this it's fair.It's a fun,carefree summery smell of pineapple with sweet vanilla drydown,it's delicious and far better than more expensive and sickeningly sweet CSP Vanille Pineapple.

This is a really sharp,heavy,old-lady scent.Almost made me sick,I had to wash it of ASAP.
Very fruity,sweet without being cloying,and like a summer in the bottle.You can really smell ripe sun-warmed strawberries and blackcurrant there.I guess it's a summer fragrance,but I can't wait until summer so I'm using it now in dead of winter.Love the purple bottle,too.
I just splurged on Midnight Rain and it smells out of this world!It smells very sweet,almost like a gourmand fragrance, and absolutely intoxicaying and delicious.I find similarities with Alchimie,Armani Code,Midnight Fantasy and Burberry Brit,but this one is the best.The packaging,though,is so ugly,it's a big turn-off,and it's ridiculously expensive and hard to find.This is good for cold weather,but I don't think I'll repurchase it because of the price.
after reading all these positive reviews I decided to order Calycanthus and made a huge mistake.I just got it today and tried and it just stinks like a cheap soap or body spray you would get at 99 cent store.I expected so much more,and now I can't return this bottle.Money wasted!
I think I would like to use this for the rest of my life.I just bought this and became addicted to it.I'm very picky when it comes to perfume,but this was an instant hit with me.It's a beautiful,smooth,expensive-smelling fruity-floral with a sweet vanillic drydown.Nothing boring or old-lady about it.Plus,the bottle is so chic.It has a very sophisticated classy feel about it.Good lasting power,and it can be worn any season.

It may be a somewhat juvenile scent,but I love it,and the bottle is so cute.Very,very sweet and fruity,reminds me of blueberry muffins,dries down to delicious vanilla.Perfect for cold weather.
This is the worst perfume I ever tried.It smells like nothing but the laundry detergent,and the price is ridiculous.It almost made me sick so I had to wash it off immediately.It's pretty strong stuff though.
