Fragrances - CLINIQUE - Beyond Rose Perfume Spray

11 days 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

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

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 …

Fragrances - CHANEL - Chance

Chanel has some beauties that are worth the high prices, but this one smells like a simple Avon offering targeted to middle school girls for sock hops on Friday night.

This has very little personality to me. It smells light and generic and perfect for people who do not want to wear a scent that others will ever notice. It reminds me of an after shower body spray ( that is really …
