This is along the lines of Escada's never-ending line of vacationey fragrances, Pacifica's bright fruity-florals, and classics like Calyx. Carnelian takes a fruit salad and makes it not just...

I did try the Carnelian as a sample since there was a big rave about the similarity to Citrus Dream by Jalaine. First of all I dont see it less expensive as the Jalaine. Probably only by a...

Due to a supporting cast of mango and papaya, Carnelian wins the prize position as best, brightest, juiciest blood orange scent around, and believe me, I've tried a lot! Acqua di Parma Blu...

Soft citrus fragrance with a sweet fruity heart and a soft musk drydown. One of the few citrus fragrances that does not make me want to run, since it wears close to the skin and does not smell...

What a beautiful scent! I have tried all of the Sage oils, and this is definitely in my top 2 or 3. It's a beautiful, deep citrus, but not at all sharp or tart the way that some citrus scents...
