Expensive, but this one is worth it. Sesame is the best scent at TBS alongside Indien Gardenia, IMO. mmm... It's not greasy, even if it was, I wouldn't care because, let me reiterate-it smells GOOD
Yum! Can smell the apple the most, but in a good way! It's good to wear in the winter, when you miss spring! Light enough to wear in summer.
This is very nice. I like how it's masculine, but just feminine enough for a woman. Such a comfort scent; soothing. It's also pretty original. I think I'll be buying this one.

Yep, it's lilac alright. Very nice, maybe overpowering at times, but I really like it.
This was a pretty nice fragrance, but I gave it 3 lippies because it was simply not original. It's pretty much is what it says it is-Magnolia. But it is a comfort scent, so I'll bring it up to 4 lippies I think, lol. Smells alot like The Body Shop's Indian Gardenia, which I own. IG is a bit sweeter, and Magnolia turned on my skin a little, wear for a while before you buy. L'Occitane is a cute little store though :)
I had such high expectations for this one. But, alas, like the previous reviewer said, it smells like dough. Ok, play-doh. Few smells are so potent that I get a headache from them, but this one did it, and it made me nauseous to boot. I usually love almond scents, but this is by no means sweet almond; it's very dry. Unless it makes a drastic change on your skin I wouldn't recommend wearing it your body, rather, spray it on sheets or something. Just not my sheets.
Phew! way too sweet. But underneath that, I smell something very soft about this fragrance. If they took away the "shades of sun-ripened fruit", Incanto would smell much better, being a simpler floral and woody blend.
Love it. I'm crazy about this one:) It's sophisticated, but not overpowing. Black Currant, Heliotrope, and Freesia notes make it the best! I just adore it! *smiles* It smells fresh and sweet, and the bottle is adorable! i only wish it had a flat bottom so it could sit upright.

The first note I detect is black licorice. Then this perfume gets smoky with a bit of tobacco. Basically, I don't like it. It's different, but for the older crowd, those who can afford a fur coat to go with it.
Ew. Maybe it's because I'm young, (although my mother doesn't like this either) but this scent is just overpowering. I don't know what the note is, but it's the same one in all those other big name designers' perfumes that makes it smell like the scary grade school teacher you had. But that's just my thinking, lol. I just think it has too much flower in it, might be better with a hint of citrus or other more foody note. Despite this, I can see where it might work for an individual's body chemistry, but it has to be a certain person. Therefore I gave it two lippies. Chance is the only Chanel fragrance that I think is good, as a matter of fact it is very unique; go for that one.
The best way to try out this fragrance is in the shower gel form. If you want to keep it light, stick with that, but otherwise the eau de toilette is great and lasts for a while: 2 1/2 hours, which is a long time in my experience:) I wore this to homecoming and used the shower gel, lotion, and perfume and it lasted most of the night. A sweet marine smell, reminds me of Florida. But a tip: the lotion only smells good when layered with the perfume. Otherwise it smells kind of fishy-blah
