I love this fragrance, it is everything I enjoy. Soft, powdery, a little sweet, it has a doughy quality that heliotrope lends to fragrances that makes it snuggle worthy and easy to wear for me. As far as the rose, it perks up a tiny bit for me throughout the midnotes and then fades into obscurity. This fragrance then becomes pure heliotrope, softness, powder and a bit of vanilla. After stumbling …Read more

Fragrances - Philosophy - Amazing Grace Concentrated Perfume Oil

I love the regular Amazing Grace spray and this smells exactly like that to me. Normally I like warm scents with a little sweetness and maybe some spcie, amber, vanilla etc. You get the pic. This scent is totally un-me but I really love it. It's one of those that I never would have imagined I would like from the description. It does have a soap and water feeling to it but there is something …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Cinq Mondes-- Ritual de India

Jul/10/2008

Also known as Ritual de Bengalore, India this sounded right up my alley. The description touted cardamon and vanilla. Love both of those. Just after application the cardamom was really prominent as well as the vanilla but both had a livliness and freshness about them that made this an interesting perfume. Within about 5 minutes all that wonderfulness was gone and all I could detect was something …Read more

This smells like baby power. Ambery baby powder. After drying down for a bit there is some woodiness and the amber becomes stronger. It's nice and worth checking out if you like baby powder-ish scents but it's pretty basic. I much prefer profumum Alba for this type of scent. That one is very rich and has some depth and a little more interest to it. This one is a very nice scent, but it …Read more

WOW! This is the absolutely most luxurious beauty item I have ever owned. I like the parfum version of this even though it's a bit heavy for my taste. It's perfect in winter weather though. I saw this today at Marshalls, of all places, for $14.99. I was curious and grabbed one and boy am I glad I did. I want to stress that this is pure luxury. The compact is extremely heavy and feels …Read more

Here is the description of this fragrance taken from the Aedes website:...."Precious woods provide a theme for this smoldering fragrance from Maître Parfumeur et Gantier which would appeal to both men and women alike. The dark sandalwood and patchouli are festooned with the radiance of orange blossom and bergamot. The sheer jasmine notes are juxtaposed with the warm spice of bay leaf and …Read more

I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed before, it is absolutely breathtaking. I am really shocked to have immediately liked this one since I am not a Chypre lover in general. Before you think you have smelled this before and hated it, this is NOT Molinards Chypre D'Orient. That is a much cheaper scent that is nowhere even close to this. I have enjoyed some Chypres in the past …Read more

Highlighters - Lumiere - Soft Radiance All Over Face Color

Jul/01/2008

What a lovely highlighter! It is described as a soft dewy pink and it really is.The shimmer is so subtle, it is more of an opalescent effect. It reminds me of Bare Escentuals clear radiance if it was creamier and less overtly shimmery. This gives a really lovely glow. The texture is so creamy and smooth, it would be hard to over do this.It's nearly fool proof as a highlighter. I am a pale …Read more

Blush - Lumiere - Ditto 'O'

Jul/01/2008

I really like this. I don't think it's a ringer for the NARS it is mimicking but in itself, it is a very pretty blush! Whereas the NARS is a pinky golden peach, this is more of a peachy golden pink. It is very bright, I wouldn't call it fuschia but it's definitely a warmer pink. You only need the tiniest amount and the shimmer is there but not as prevalent as some other MMU …Read more

This is Lumiere's version of MAC naked. I have never tried the MAC version of this so I am unable to compare them for you but I can describe what I am seeing here. This is a very soft creamy ivory beige with a hint of gold and pink. It has small golden and pink shimmer throughout.The shimmer is subtle enough for this to make a very nice all over wash on the lid and browbone. The texture is …Read more
