Sep/24/2018

Pacifica Island Vanilla is scrumptious and delicious without being foody . It is all vanilla , deep ,rich and very sniffable.
It is a happy, simple scent . All vanilla, nothing but vanilla but it is a GREAT vanilla especially for the price. I find it long lasting.

Every time I test a Pacifica scent, I end up buying it eventually. ( The Gardenia and the Lilac are good fragrances …

Fragrances - Le Labo - Ylang 49

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/15/2018

Ylang 49 is a very good release from Le Labo .

Having worn this numerous times I can say this. Ylang 49 resembles Aromatics Elixir ( AE for short) by Clinique. Tremendously old school chypre fragrance - tart, sharpish, mega longevity especially ( IMHO ) as your bottle ages / matures.

I took me several long thoughts to work out what scent Ylang reminded me of. I loved it …

Gaiac is a minimalistic masterpiece.I first tried this at Barney's and it did not sit well with me for the first couple of times I sampled it. I got ...bacon. Hickory smoked bacon. Incense and bacon. The SA did have a good laugh !

However, I was able to move past that .I do love Le Labo . I took an expensive chance last year 2017. I bought a 50 ml bottle of Gaiac over Mousse de …

Aug/27/2018

Perricone is going through some changes right now .Packaging is changing but I think the old classics are still the same - formula wise ?

Cold Plasma + ( plus) face with the black label is the one I using. I have used the pot with the grey label that just states 'Cold Plasma' too. The smell is better than the old packaged grey Label Cold Plasma and the consistency seems a …

Joy By Dior just launched a couple of days ago and I have been wearing it through generous samples . I have approx 5 ml .I have been generously squirting it on ..because I have to . It is a quiet-ish scent.

Before I tried the new scent,I did not read any reviews about it but I did look at the notes.I was sold on the rose & Jasmine heart. I will not comment on the * elephant* in …

Atelier Cologne make decent fragrances in general.

Vanille Insensee is excellent. It would make a wonderful signature scent actually.It has that slight mystery about it and it does not over project. It is the type of scent that becomes a part of you,your skin , your aura.

Vanilla ; dry , lightly woody but delectable with a undercurrent of inoffensive incense, a smoothness …

Jun/13/2018

I put 'yes' I would buy this again but it is gonna be a bit more difficult as Ambre Eternel is being discontinued. What a shame .

The scent is my favorite for the 3 of this middle eastern type scent series. A new musk is taking its place.

Ambre Eternel 'pulls' from Guerlain heritage ..there are whiffs of Shalimar eau de parfum and then ghostly whiffs of …

This is a not a Sephora Exclusive product as I bought mine at Ulta.

I have read reviews that in the past this product had a tint - orangey . I can tell you that this probably has been fixed because it is completely transparent now ,colorless .

I like this product. It is very practical .It's a mineral powder and so a physical barrier /block to sun and UV.
Pros : …
