Lip Gloss - Poole - Separates Lip Gloss

Sep/23/2003

I give this 2 stars for color. I have 007, a gorgeous melony rose. I find this lip gloss very thin and drying--has anyone noticed that it contains mineral oil? That isn't supposed to be good for your skin, it's a petroleum byproduct. Lots of shine, not thick gloss shine but wet slick shine. I guess I will use mine occasionally, when I'm strapped, but I won't repurchase …Read more

Fragrances - Parfums De Nicolai - Number One

Jul/31/2003

I may be unable to detect all the complexity of this perfume on my skin, for to me it smells like a really sophisticated, really complex white floral, but I don't get the distinctive notes of tuberose, then jasmine, etc. I detect a refined blend that wafts off the skin in a refined fashion, making its presence known, without aggression. It definitely smells like 'perfume,' but …Read more

Fragrances - Parfums De Nicolai - Odalisque

I love the top notes of Odalisque, it is a very refreshing lily of the valley; however it quickly dries down on me to an unremarkable rosy scent. It's a beautiful perfume, an easy floral to wear, but I don't think I would wear it often. If only the remarkable top note would last...

This one has a milky note that smells a little acrid on me. Still, the tuberose is rich and creamy, worth sampling. An interesting perfume, but Jean La Porte created both this version and his MPG version, which is superior. Try both before you buy...

This starts out as a wonderful citrusy raspberry on a base of vanilla and tonka. It reminds me of Eau de Charlotte, but it is less powdery; this is more like silk. It dries down to a beautiful raspberry with a hint of vanilla underneath, an extremely happy scent. Lovely.

This is a really groovy cologne that is unisex but smells undeniably sexy. I put it on in my office and a couple guys came in and said 'Something smells great!' It starts out with a lime note that morphs into a rich, cool-toned spice blend that reminds me of the smell of fine dark chocolate (not the taste, the smell) with clove, its very european actually and sophisticated. The lime …Read more

Fragrances - Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Perfumes - Jasmin

Jul/16/2003

I really really really like the jasmine in this. It is sophisticated and beautiful, and on me it is accurate to the jasmine note. However, I have a sample and not the bottle, so I don't know if the greenness will be overwhelming with a fresh big spray bottle. Sometimes spraying will affect a perfume for the negative; I find A La Nuit unbearably green when sprayed but quite beautiful when …Read more

This is beautiful, described quite well below, I would even say it opens with a note of white flowers before it becomes grassy and floral simultaneously. A well composed perfume, but...it makes me sneeze! The only reason I give it four stars and wouldn't buy it after I use up my decant. However, I will keep trying this, as I may change my mind...

Fragrances - Fendi - Fendi Theorema EDP [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/08/2003

This was pretty unusual. Strong burst of orange followed by incense and spices. I do detect cumin, but it reminds me a bit of church, as in religious spices, in the best possible way. Unusually interesting and well composed for a designer fragrance, this also reminds me a bit of SL Ambre Sultan, but the drydown has an emphasis on sandalwood instead of amber, which may be what people note as …Read more
