I loved the ads in the 80's and remember dying to try it. I finally got my hands on it in the 8th grade and hated it. The next time I used it was during the summer when a bunch of girls decided to toilet paper a boy's tent and I thought spraying Love's Baby Soft all over his pillow and clothes would be the worst form of torture. I'm pretty sure I was right.

This makes me feel spent and hopeful, as though I'd been crying my eyes out and have just realized that things will get better. Chopin in a bottle. I'm starting to understand why my SO abhors this--it's emotionally fragile... so I only wear it when I can spend the day alone.

If I saw an orphaned animal or child, I would wear Bellodgia and cuddle them close. This smells like the perfect mother or a benevolent goddess: comforting, almost cozy with balanced, very soft rose that makes you want to get closer. This is my most put-together fragrance--too soft and feminine for an interview, but just right for a romantic one-on-one with someone you've been dating a …Read more

This is Serge Lutens's A la nuit's cleaned-up relative. Gorgeous, ladylike floral. This starts off slightly green and almost sharp, then becomes a blooming floral that stops just short of becoming heady. I like tempering this with something smoother, like vanilla, to take the green edge off. Just a drop would be daytime appropriate; a couple drops more would be great for an outdoor …Read more

I tried this a few months ago and dismissed it as too heady. Then I went to Bangkok and came back desperate to find a scent that matched the jasmine there--this is it. Perfect, heady, lush. I never thought I'd like a soliflore, but I'm loving this one. I couldn't see wearing this daily, but definitely for sultry evenings when you want to feel adored. If this were cocaine …Read more

tequila, sraight. No lime, no salt. This would be great for people looking for liquor scents, but after an unsavory post-tequila experience, I can't get far enough away from this.

After the poster below explained that this means "Winter water", this scent makes more sense to me. It's clean yet complex. There's something simultaneously winter/cool and cozy to me, like taking a walk in a light snow wearing a gorgeous floor-length cape. I can appreciate it's beauty, but this doesn't stand out from other equally great soft florals out there. …Read more

While Coco retains just enough dignity to be out in public, Musc Ravageur says, "I've just had sex, exhausted my partner(s), and I'm ready for more. Won't you be my next victim?" Coco taunts, MR flaunts. I adore them both. I haven't tried MR out yet--it'll be great fun to try. No virgin martyrs allowed here; this is strictly floozy territory (in the best …Read more

1940's Miss Colbert in It Happened One Night. Naive, rich, daddy's girl in a beautiful crepe de chine wedding dress--that's what Lipstick Rose is to me. this would be stunning on the right person--it feels too innocent for me (I'm lusting for Musc Ravageur)

beautiful, uplifting, oranges and something else I can't place scent. The first time I wore this a woman nearby exclaimed very loudly, "you smell GORGEOUS!!" For some reason it's a little loud on me--I prefer warmer scents. Great for others, just not for me.
