I detest this fragrance! I used to work at Barney's & the FM rep would walk around spraying Carnal Flower. It's much too green & reminds me of air freshners in public restrooms. I like my white florals rich & big not green, watery & synthetic. I think people like this fragrance for the name. I dislike the whole FM line.

Of all of the perfumes I wear this is my fiancé's favorite. I dislike most tuberose fragrances because they smell like the air freshners in public restrooms & porta potty's. Fracas smell cheap & sweet to me. This scent is much heavier & richer & has a new dose of Jasmine. It has a very boosy quality to it that I love.
*cough* *cough* *sneeze* *cough* worst perfume I have ever tested in my life! It seems like some kind of chemical cleaner and made me sick to my stomach and set off my allergies. I feel like someone has assaulted me with a fire hose full of fake aquatic notes. I could not possibly hate a fragrance more then I hate this one. I'm sort of excited those because I've never had a very least favorite scent until now!

Best eyecream I have ever used!
This smells heavenly on me! I was working in a popular night club and a girl at my table smelled so wonderful I asked her what she was wearing and she said Bill Blass Nude. I bought it online for I think 10 bucks or so and am loving it! My bestfriend is used to my huge collection of fragrances, but when I wore this one she said I smelled amazing. I often layer it with Un Bois Vanille or Lea and it seems even better with a little vanilla. On me Nude is a soft, creamy clean pear scent.

This is a review for the parfum...it is wonderful! It has a lovely honey note that just lasts and lasts. It reminds me of Dune but a little more sweet and fruity. The little rose gold bottle & dusty rose pink pouch are beautiful! It's the only fragrance my boyfriend has ever really paid attention too he said, "It makes me want to eat your neck!" However, if you are prone to allergies I'd stay away from this one because it tickles my nose and back of my throat a bit so I can imagine it would really set allergies off.
I really like this scent it's light and sparkly in the top (you can really smell the litchi fruit), a little floral in the middle (mostly lily) and soft and musky in the base, but it has no sillage & very poor staying power. It's most closely related to Hanae Mori, but lightier and not as sweet. If only it had sillage and staying power...
I have never received so many compliments on a fragrances as I have when wearing this...however I have a secret...I mix it with Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens. When I wear the two mixed together complete strangers both men and women comment on how wonderful I smell. I also wear it alone and love it just as much. It has a wonderful burst of lime in the opening and dries down to a soft slightly vanilla, floral, citrus scent. I can see how some people might say it has an aftershave like quality but it really doesn't stay that way and becomes very feminine within a few minutes. I would put this in the same category as D&G Light Blue...a nice warm, but light and clean citrus scent that won't offend anyone and is nice for all occasions.
I got a big bottle of this as a gift for Christmas and I wore it for the first time today and two people asked me if I was wearing D & G Light Blue. The bottle is beautiful, but for the price Light Blue is a better deal and I think it last longer on the skin. For a nice fresh but soft slightly vanilla scent I prefer Chanel's new Chance Eau Fraiche. Scent of Peace is pretty but so close to Light Blue I won't repurchase it.
I'm freaking out because I can't find this anywhere anymore! Its the best anti-frizz glossing serum I have ever used and I'm kicking myself for not stocking up on it!!! My mom used it when I was visiting her a couple of months ago and my sister-in-laws commented it was the prettiest her hair had ever looked. I promised her I'd order some online and send it to her. Now I'm out and when I went to order it for both of us its not avaiable anywhere...
This was much more floral then I expected, but its very comfy. A bit smoky, sweet and floral. The incense is light enough the general consumer probably wouldn't describe it as incensy, but its there and I love the smokiness of it. At times the floral is a bit much for me but I still really enjoy this perfume its my favorite out of the Poison line, but if you really hate florals you'll probably be annoyed by this fragrance and even more annoyed that the florals sneak up on you out what could be a wonderfully smoky, exotic fragrance.
People say this is a Flowerbomb copy but it's much closer to Miss Dior Cherie. The first time I smelled it I was seized by that "this smells like something else" feeling. I read the reviews here and compared it to my Flowerbomb and its not even close. Then all the sudden it dawned on me and I grabbed my Miss Dior Cherie and sure enough thats what it is. Tart berry smell mixed with vanilla. It's actually quite wearable and pleasant. Its sweet but not gaggingly so (is that a word, lol) and it drys down to a soft vanilla with hardly any berry left. I guess I'd say it's the love child of Miss Dior Cherie and Flowerbomb so if you like those you'll love this.

BPAL's new one, Cobra Lily is sooo pretty! It's floral, heavy, slightly sweet & warm. The Cobra Lily is a plant that looks like a cobra and eats insects. It attracts them with a powerful, sweet nectar. I've never smelled a real Cobra Lily, but if this is what it smells like then no wonder bugs drown themselves in it!
Beautiful bottle, beautiful fragrance. This is what Light Blue should smell like. You will think Light Blue when you smell it, but it's much, much better. Clean, warm, fruity, fresh. Perfect for summer. Layer w/ the lotion for better staying power.

This one suprised me. I was expecting something much different. I think I was expecting something closer to Monyette Paris. I mostly smell Neroli, Magnolia, earthy Nag Champa and incense. It's not a heavy scent and I almost smell something piney in it. The opening note smell young, generic/trendy. It's a good thing the Nag Champa and incense join the teeny-bopper party because otherwise I wouldn't like this scent at all. This is one of those scents that's mixes bright, sparkling florals and citrus with earthy undertones. The drydown isn't bad. It's light, but has a nice incense thing going on that I personally enjoy. If you're expecting complicated and rich you'll be disappointed. It more a bright, "pink girly" fragrance with a slight hippy edge that saves it. I wish I could give this a 3.5
