Fragrances - Lolita Lempicka - Si Lolita de Lolita Lempicka

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/16/2014

Sweet and spicy. No big surprise but pleasant. I distinctly smell the peppercorn, the bergamot, the patchouli, and the amber. The bottle is a bit too cute, even compared to the original and the L. If you like gourmand scents with a hint of masculine, Si Lolita should be on your list. I found my bottle at a Marshall's for a very reasonable price.

Fragrances - Yves Saint Laurent - Paris

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Paris = Roses+ Powder + Hints of Violet. It says it has orange (and a bunch of other stuff too) but I can't smell it. On the sweet side but subdued enough not to induce a headache. I wouldn't wear it every day but I would miss it if it weren't in my wardrobe.

Fragrances - Viktor & Rolf - Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/17/2014

FLowerbomb is the equivalent of a Little Black Dress in your "Top 10 Must Have in Your Wardrobe Staple". Most folks will love it, you will wear it easily, it might become your signature scent if you're inclined to have just 1 scent. It's in the "Angel, Coco Mademoiselle, Flowerbomb" trio. In other words: Cotton candy and patchouli. Of the three, I find Flowerbomb to …Read more

Fragrances - Amouage - Fate

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/30/2013

I like Amouage perfumes in very small doses. I own and wear (with caution) the following: Dia, Gold, Ubar, Jubilation 25, and Epic.

Fate is the newest addition to my Amouage collection. It bears a very strong resemblance to Opium. It's Opium for those who can't do Opium. Here are the notes per LuckyScent: Bergamot, cinnamon, chilli, pepper, rose, narcissus, jasmine …

Fragrances - PENHALIGON'S - Artemisia

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/30/2013

It has been mentioned before but here it is once again: Half Cashmere Mist (Donna Karan) and half Nanadebary (original pink) makes for a comfort, feel-good, don't think about it too much, perfume.

The Penhaligon website says there is caramel, powder, green apples, nectarines, jasmine tea, violets, cyclamen, lily petals, amber, vanilla, warm spices, and musk. I don't know …

Fragrances - Agent Provocateur - l'Agent

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2013

I agree with the reviews who commented on the masculine aspect. I don't see this as a negative since the fragrance would otherwise be too potent "rosey". It's somewhat interesting but not enough to warrant a full bottle. I smell woods, rose, incense, and musk. I like the packaging, as with all other AP products.

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Karl Lagerfeld - Kapsule Light

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/03/2013

This is one of 3 fragrances in the KL Kapsule range. The others are Floriental and Woody. It is not what I would expect from Karl. Karl is memorable, this certainly is not. It's instantly forgettable, yet pleasant enough to wear. It's supposed to be bitter orange, jasmine, clove, nutmeg, musk. All I can smell is melon and a bit of musk. Melon is not officially listed in the notes but go …Read more

Fragrances - Giorgio Armani - Onde Extase

2.0

Dec/03/2013

I agree with the reviewer below. Extase is a refined version of Code, which translates as "in your face woody oriental". I got it on sale and still feel like I was ripped off. End of story.

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Idylle

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/25/2010

I understand and concur with all the criticism that Idylle is drawing: it's generic, it's department store-ish, it's not outstanding enough for the French powerhouse of creativity. Okay. But what happened to enjoying perfumes just because they're easy to wear and "pretty"? Idylle certainly falls into this category for me. There is a bit of SJP's Lovely and …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Allure Insolente 65

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/11/2010

I walked into Saks wanting Rouge Allure Confidentielle and walked out with Insolente instead. Insolente is a Fall 2010 Rouge Allure and it's absolutely gorgeous. It's a bright pink for those who think they cannot do bright pink. For reference, I am around an NC20. I don't think I can compare it to anything else but it satisfied that "I need to get something different than my …Read more
