Fragrances - Calvin Klein - CK one summer 2006

May/30/2006

If *I LOVE LOVE* works well for my 11 year old daughter, *CK One Summer* is perfection for my 13 year old daughter. I love this, and can't stand the regular CK One...which makes me want to wash everyone and everything around me. This is just delightful fun. The bottle is whimsical. I think there are a lot of educated noses around here who have trouble just relaxing enough to enjoy these …Read more

Fragrances - Yves Saint Laurent - Rive Gauche Eau de Toilette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2006

When I frist tried Rive Gauche I thought it was similar to Calandre, which is a favorite of mine, but I had only sprayed the RG on my coat, not on my skin. When worn on the skin these two scents are not that similar (you were right Bairn). They diverge sharply after the first bright top notes leave and this has an animalic edge to it that Calandre doesn't have. Rive Gauche is at first a …Read more

Fragrances - Burberry - Burberry Tender Touch

3.0

Transparent and oddly gourmand. This touched my navy blue blouse and left a navy blue splotch on my arm. That was weird. I think that the Burberry fragrances aren't my thing (except I do adore all of those plaid packages!) but this was better than most I've tried ... more floral soapy, instead of spices and vanilla.

I *W I L L* buy this ! ...for my 11 year old. We tried it at the mall yesterday. She smells so good in it and she adores the crazy bottle. I think anyone at any age could love this if grapefruit notes don't bother you. I didn't sense any rotting grapefruit, just lovely fresh citrus notes. It will be a great Christmas gift for her next winter, well for us, because I love being …Read more

Fragrances - Cacharel - Noa Fleur

May/29/2006

I bought this yesterday, unsniffed, based on reviews and hoping for my "Dove soap scent" obsession to finally be satisfied. It is not satisfied. This smells like Ivory soap, not Dove soap. Dove is sweeter and creamier. This is a drier soapy scent, and simply lovely anyway. Opening the box is really just so fun too. It's like a little specially wrapped gift. I will buy more …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Pure White Linen

May/29/2006

Total agreement with GlamDiva. I tried this yesterday at a counter and enjoyed all of the transitions. This is the one for those of you who hate the original White Linen. It couldn't be more different. This is not oceanic, as is the 2nd White Linen ~"Breeze". It's not sharply green as the first White Linen can be. This is a warm floral scent. The part I dislike is that …Read more

Fragrances - Vera Wang - Vera Wang

May/24/2006

Oh no no no no no no..... This is not "old lady". Neither is it comparable in any way to Avon's Little Black Dress other than that they are both perfumes in bottles. I have both of these in bottles. Little Black Dress is warm and spicy with a floral center that's not very distinct and an obvious (nauseating) vanilla, ambery base. Vera Wang is a light fruity floral …Read more

Apr/25/2006

~~ stream of consciousness play by play here, right after a steamy shower to open my sinuses... Tobacco, incense, honey and amber......then smoke, as in gaiacwood...and then something rich and heavy ...maybe a flower (and it hasn't even been 5 minutes yet) then cumin and cumin with a grassy note? basil? oregano? and the lingering cumin. hmmmmm, I think sage is the grassy note. Around ten …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - No 5 Sensual Elixir

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2006

This morning I got up and sprayed my Chanel 5 edt all over me ~~before coffee, before breakfast, before anything. Having come through a blizzard just yesterday I was feeling so excited by the sunshine, so much younger than "late 40's" and so happy to merely be well. By the afternoon I needed a refresher so I dabbed on a little Chanel 5 Parfum, and then what do you know (?) Two …Read more

Fragrances - Tova - Nirvana

4.0

Apr/24/2006

It's odd that QVC doesn't seem to have this product any more, and for that matter, they seem to be ditching Tova's line right and left, which deeply disturbs me. One wonders if Tova is leaving... I am starting nasty baseless rumors now... Still, for now, Nirvana can be found on the internet. It's also odd that I just hated this the first time I tried it three or four years …Read more
