Fragrances - Jennifer Lopez - Enduring Glow Perfume

3.0

Oct/30/2018

Today I tried JLo Enduring Glow. It reminded me of one of the Chloe scents at first (green/chypre), then it settled into JLo Sunkissed Glow (clean lightly fruity) from 2009. It’s got quite good lasting power and projection on my skin. Top: Bergamot, pear, lychee. Heart: magnolia, peony, violet. Base: musk, amber, sandalwood. Overall a nice summer scent and sold at a reasonable price too.

Fragrances - Dolce&Gabbana - The Only One Eau de Parfum

Sep/23/2018

Today I tried Dolce & Gabbana The Only One. I was surprised how much I like it. Firstly, I give it 10/10 for longevity. One small squirt on my arm is still going strong many hours later. I don’t think it smells anything like the original The One. Also, I’m sure I’ve smelt similar scents, so it’s not overly unique. It’s soft, but long lasting, so worth a try, in my opinion. Similar scents …Read more

I think this fragrance is lovely (light floral to my nose) but way too fleeting. I would not be be happy about purchasing a fragrance at Chanel's prices and then having it not last. I sprayed it on my skin and also on a card and both had very poor staying power. Very disappointing.

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - AURA Eau de Parfum

I tried Aura and was very disappointed. Sadly, it was root beer/sarsaparilla (the wintergreen) mixed with Mugler Alien to my nose. This one is not for me. On a positive note, the bottle is interesting and stands out in the crowd among other perfumes I saw.

A good dupe for Viva la Juicy. I agree with other reviewers that it lasts a long time on the skin. I would buy it because I already own Viva la Juicy and it's just too similar to me. I think it's a good option for fans of Viva la Juicy. Well done Avon.

Self Tanners - Unlisted Brand - Eco Tan Invisible Tan

I tried Eco Tan Invisible Tan because I was looking for something without the horrible acidic fake tan smell. I believe the smell comes from dihydroxyacetone (DHA). Even though Eco Tan Invisible Tan says it doesn’t have any “nasties” in it does actually have DHA in it, and therefore does have a fake tan smell. However, it doesn’t have an added perfume scent which somehow made the DHA fake tan …Read more

Top notes: citruses, white tea, water lily, red apple
Heart: violet, white peony, sakura (cherry blossom)
Base: orris root, ambrette seed, patchouli
This fragrance looked great on paper and I was very excited to try it. Sadly it was a major disappointment. I was so faint/light that I could barely detect it on my skin. It smells like water mixed with a very mild generic floral …

To me this smells like a light version of Giorgio Armani Si mixed with a light version of Thierry Mugler Angel. It has good staying power both on skin and my sleeve where I tested it. It wasn't for me only because I think I'd prefer both those scents separately. It's a good quality fragrance.

I was really excited to try this fragrance and today I had the chance. Unfortunately, I was disappointed! It just smells like Decadence by Marc Jacobs with a dry down of Rogue by Rihanna. There is nothing wrong with either of those fragrances, but I was really hoping for something different and a bit more romantic from Michael Buble. The staying power was fantastic, so if you like those …Read more

This is a gorgeous fragrance - IMHO. It has great lasting power and a lovely scent. Top - Freesia, Ivy Leaves and Pettit grain. Middle - Carnation, Rose and Lily of the valley. Base - Sandalwood, Tonka Bean and Musk. It reminds me very much of 2012 Version of Dolce&Gabbana Pour Femme. Worth a try if you are keen on similar scents. It's a bit of citrus zing, a bit of floral with a …Read more
