Fragrances - Lagerfeld - Chloe Eau de Toilette

If you miss the Lagerfeld Chloe that was rich, intense, floral and feminine, look for a bottle of Hawaii , by Milton Lloyd . It is a fantastic and cheap dupe that will take you back in time to the gorgeous original. It is so pretty I have ordered three bottles as backups .Hawaii smells like the Chloe I wore in 1985 raising my children . The current version is nice, but not nearly as complex and …Read more

Fragrances - CLINIQUE - Beyond Rose Perfume Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I ordered this (EBAY) after reading favorable reviews at another site. Frankly , I am impressed . I do not smell rose at all , but a melange of spices and an aromatic note that is refreshing . It reminds me a little bit of an old favorite by Estée Lauder ( who has ruined everything they ever created ) called Sensuous Noir.

Beyond Rose is spicy, feminine and best of all LASTING . I got …

This is a recent discovery for me , and I am really enjoying it . I am so tired of perfumes that smell like a bakery or a jelly jar. And I am even more tired of perfumes that can’t be detected after twenty minutes. There are far too many of them ( Jan 2019 ) due to the last round of IFRA regs .

I purchased a 2016 bottle of La Panthere , and it is strong, rich and sophisticated. It is …

This is a recent discovery for me and I love it . I think it may be out of production, but there are still bottles left to purchase. It is a lovely scent and a bit of light spices and amber , similar to Trevor . I prefer it to Tresor . There is a melon note that appears when first sprayed, but then it disappears , and I am glad because I do not care for melon in perfume . This is not a heavy …Read more

I am surprised some reviews call this cheap smelling . It gets great reviews at Amazon and another perfume review site .

It does smell like a classic . It is spicy, similar to Guerlain’s L’ Heure Bleu according to many who have reviewed it . I think it is lovely and a fantastic deal . Who would not want a lasting bottle of LB that costs around $20 including shipping ( If purchased at …

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Youth Dew

Youth Dew no longer exists and you will not find it when you get home with your new bottle that looks like the old bottles . No one will warn you that you are buying a weak vapor that will totally dissipate after five minutes , max . So much for integrity at the Lauder House.

The same goes for Beautiful. It looks the same, but only a faint vapor appears and then it disappears swiftly …

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Beautiful Eau de Parfum

Nov/27/2018

I pity the women who get this perfume for Christmas in a gift box. They will be horrified to smell almost nothing. Yes. Almost nothing . There should be a sign on the Estée Lauder counters that warns the customers to sample the latest formula before making a purchase . However, it will instead be a game of switch and bait . The customer expects to have a bottle of Beautiful , or something close …Read more

Nov/18/2018

I read reviews of Esprit D’Oscar at Fragrantica, then saw a bottle for $20 at TJ Max . I did not expect much and had no experience with ODL scents . The verdict : Move over Chanel! I own a lot of perfume and some of it is expensive. That said, Esprit D’Oscar is a stunning fragrance .

It is long lasting , extremely feminine, very very ELEGANT , and a soft spicy floral . It is somewhat …
