Fragrances - Victoria's Secret - Strawberries and Champagne

I bought my friend the body mist version, and the few spritzes I sampled seemed heavenly. So I thought the actual fragrance would be a more condensed variety of the same scent.. boy, was I wrong. This perfume has a headache-inducing metallic screech to it that nauseates me beyond belief. The light, frothy strawberry note that was very much the essence of the mist is gone, replaced by a jarring …Read more

This broke me out. I tried to ignore it and carried on, but each and every time I used it I would end up with pimples and clogged pores within that night. It wasn't that cheap, either, if I paid 20 more bucks I could've gotten a high-end MUFE foundation. The consistency, spreadability, and feeling was nice. The finish was also quite natural. I wish this had worked on me. My skin …Read more

What is WITH the hate for this fragrance? What happened to all the people who loved it during the nineties? Are they all dead and gone or did they grow up and don't like being reminded of a period when they were greener? I think there's this tendency to hate on the scents that were popular during a certain period (as well as strange gushing love for discontinued products), and I see …Read more

I don't understand the gushing raves about this fragrance. The opening notes are green, yes, but quite pungent, and it dries down to the exact same original Chance. In fact, I have it on my wrists right now and after about an hour it's a replica of the original. If you want something that's smells even slightly different, go for the pink Tendre. It doesn't have the short-lived …Read more

This smells exactly like the fragrance isle. Pleasant, perfumey, nondescript. It IS sweet and girly, but not in a fun or interesting way. It's a blend of all the perfumes you'll find at the department store. Also had an allergic reaction to it, due to this exact quality.

I've sniffed at this for years, every single time I've had the chance to. And every single time, I didn't get it. I didn't get why it was so popular, why it was recommended for those who loved fresh, citrusy, or unique scents. I still don't get it. First of all, the sillage too weak for this fragrance to have any distinctive olfactory qualities. If I strain my nose and …Read more

Fragrances - Paco Rabanne - ULTRAVIOLET Eau de Parfum

Jun/13/2010

This smells funky. I expected to love this because I love clean, "purple" scents, but there's a raw, metallic note in this that really scratches at my nerves. It also smells like grape candy, and while that is a quality I might have enjoyed had this fragrance had more going on, it falls flat here. The general impression Ultraviolet leaves is- trying to be different and chic, but …Read more

I used to lust after this because I thought it smelled like heaven. Then I started to dislike it because all the girls started wearing it in the country I live in. When I say all the girls, I mean ALL. Every single college undergrad and their grandma wore it. So while I loved the scent, I started to dislike how generic it was becoming (at least where I live).
Now... I just find it kind of …

The best out of all Burberry fragrances. Not to say that makes it fantastic or anything. It's not. It's a potent, possibly headache-inducing fragrance that could be pleasing when diluted. I put it on one wrist last night at the mall, took a shower when I got home, and this afternoon I can still faintly smell it. It's nice, a bit linen-fragrance-y or incense-y, though. It has that …Read more

Generic, generic, generic.
Disappointing fragrance from a designer brand. I expected more from Burberry than this. TBS could make this. In fact I think they already have- it's called "Everything that comes in a pink or red bottle." It's fresh, pretty, inoffensive, pleasing, generic, and misses everything that the brand represents.
