As mentioned by others, the lasting power is terrible; it started to peel immediately after I washed my hands. I'll use up the tube but won't repurchase unless the price goes down drastically.

This is a nice, light, lovely vanilla scent, but from the description, I was expecting something spicier. Lasting power isn't all that great, but it's so cheap that's not a major complaint.

A beautiful incense scent that makes me think of sneaking a kiss from a tousle-haired, pillow-lipped young man during services...naughty and invigorating, and one of my all-time favorites.

Ohhhh, yum. This smells like those Mexican Chocolate candles that Pacifica makes, and since I burn one of those every night, I fell in love with this immediately. Unfortunately, I would not actually buy a full bottle because it absolutely does not last, and it's far too expensive to spritz on every two minutes. Plus (and this is really superficial) that HAS to be one of the ugliest bottles I have ever seen!
I put this on and emerged from the bathroom, only to have my boyfriend begin sniffing the air. "Did you just spray Raid?" he asked.

I like this well enough---it smells like hot condensed milk to me, only not as sweet as CSP's Matin Calin---but man, there is NO staying power whatsoever. None. I'd go through a full-sized bottle in a week! Pass.

Ewww. Apparently I'm the sole dissenter here, but I think this smells like an elderly spinster aunt who pinches your cheeks too hard.

Even after reading all the negative reviews on here, I still felt the perverse urge to sample this for myself, thinking it couldn't be as bad as everyone said. Well... One time I had the misfortune of being seated next to an elderly gentleman on a plane, and he emitted a stream of audible farts that were so rank as to make my eyes water. I never thought I would smell something so horrific again, but I was wrong. This is worse. This makes Eau de Old Man Fart smell like Chanel No. 5.
When I first put this on it smelled strange and medicinal, but it mellowed down to pure peach with just a smidgen of mint. It's one of the most unique fragrances I've ever smelled, but it's just not for me.

I have to agree with a previous reviewer; this smells just like a headshop. It's certainly a nice smell, but far too strong for me.
Fabulous packaging, terrible scents. They don't work separately, they don't work alone. Bleh.
This is an absolutely beautiful, swoonworthy, fruity vanilla fragrance. Now, fruity perfumes can be cloying, as can vanilla, so the combination of the two is a potential migraine-inducing stinkbomb...but this is just lovely. It smells like a bowl of plump, warm raspberries drizzled with caramel and topped off with slowly melting vanilla ice cream. All the way to work, I was sniffing my wrist, oblivious to the stares of other drivers! Oh, Je t'Aime...je t'aime vraiment.

I found this to be a pleasant but not particularly exciting scent...certainly not worth the price for a full bottle (I got a sample). But man, did my boyfriend go nuts for this one! Hmmm.
In the Vanilla Bean shade, this is my HG lipstick. Every time I see it in a drugstore, I buy every single tube they have because I am so afraid they'll stop making it! The color is perfect on me (brunette, blue eyes), it tastes great, and it feels smooth on my lips. And $3 (or even less at some places) a tube? Oh yeah, sign me up!
This smells like potpourri, air freshener, or a scented candle to me. So glad I got to sample this first, because if I had paid almost $100 for Glade in an ultra-cute bottle, I think I would have cried.
