I ordered this perfume from the Maison Kurkdjian boutique, admittedly unsniffed. Such a gorgeous fragrance! Alas, I have never had such bad reaction from people in my life! My bf begged me to wash it off immediatelly, strange men in vicinity fliched, males tryed to avoid being close to me...Someone please tell me what is it in this perfume that is so pleasing to women and so repulsive to men?

Fragrances - Etro - Magot

My favourite Etro! Crisp yet powdery, wearing it I feel like I'm sitting on an Alpine meadow in late spring, chewing bubble-gum. Great sillage and lasts 3+ h, which is looong.

Turmeric and dill...and some volatile green( not ripe) fig...May be lovely, but my skin doesn't like it..I'd swap gladly my nearly full bottle:)

Yes, this is one of very few I'd buy again:) I smell hyacinth, rose, geranium..No matter if it is listed or not in the ingredients! Great silleage, and I think perfumes should leave a long trail of fragrance. They have to be noticeable, otherwise the point of wearing perfume is lost IMO:)

The question if I'd buy it again is so unfair:) I love this perfume, yet with so many I haven't tried (and I've tried a LOT 500+) and so many I want..It is intoxicatingly herbal, dry, yet rich and juicy. reminds me of Silences Jacomo(the real one - this is what I think of perfumes before re-launch). Great silleage and the fragrance lasts 4+ hours on me, which is remarkable for my …Read more

I received this as a gift in a 100ml bottle, as I wanted it so much, based on reviews..What can I say..I've had better smelling similar notes in room-freshening sprays

Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Jessica Bend Don't Break

This one is a decent basecoat, but it didn't stop my nails from breaking in the least. The brush, though, is the worst polish or treatment brush I've used. Thin and flimsy, it can't spread the product properly even on clean buffed nails. It is sold online in most UK beauty stores, by the way. Sally Hansen similar treatments are way superior.

I was hoping this product to be at least as good as the cheaper brands, but I was disappointed. It is not milled finely enough and accentuates blemishes and even fine lines as it settles in them. The sifter boxes are a bit easier to use, as the have more wholes, but on the other hand this makes the powder prone to spilling if not stored vertically.

This one of the best foundations I've had and I've owned many brands, yes, I've tried more than 100 :) I prefer liquid foundation, but have had cake ones as well(SK-II, YSL,Chantecaille,Kanebo,etc). RCMA is very pigmented and product the size of 2 grains of rice is enough to cover the whole face and neck. Theatrical makeup is usually associated with heavy coverage, but it depends …Read more
