i love the color, but the formula is really bad. you need _at least_ three coats for it to look decent. i won't buy this again, because i'm hoping to find a good dupe for it, since life's too short to apply more than two coats of polish.

i so wanted to like this one, because it seems like a good every day color. but on my cooler undertones it looks slightly brick-like and makes my hands look like... like i'm not alive anymore, basically. wore it twice and that was it.

it took me quite awhile to get to like this one. to me, this is a very crisp lily-of-the-valley. it's a flowery green scent perfect for summer days when other heavier perfumes might seem too much. i find this thing to be very clean-smelling, despite its marketing as a seductive fragrance. the thing that kinda puts me off it tho is that i don't think i'd be able to recognize it …Read more

this is really a great fragrance. it has a lot of personality so you don't have to worry about passing unnoticed when wearing it. it's a tad masculine (probably the cardamom), but in a feminine way, imo (can't really describe this). it has cloves and vanilla in it, so to me this smells really yummy, more suitable for cooler days. lasting power is very, very good. i mean almost …Read more

ok people, let's not be snobs here: this is coco mlle without the drydown. nothing more, so just having been signed by jacques polge and produced by chanel doesn't make it a great fragrance. and it's actually quite ordinary if you ask me (except the marketing perhaps

i was very curious about this one, having heard it contains a note of rubber... and it does... and my god, that rubber note is wonderful! it definitely is there, but only a genius could make car tires smell so damn good. the drydown is a bit (but just a bit) subtler, with a smokey vanilla note.
however, this is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

this stuff is pure horror. it's totally useless for dark circles, so if you've had a bad night don't even think of turning to this. i tried to use it as base for my eye-makeup, but even that was a total fiasco. it doesn't cover AT ALL and smudges like hell. gee, i don't think i've ever had such a horrible product.

it's not really my type of fragrance. i was looking for a summer fragrance that contains magnolia and the sa suggested me this. it's certainly floral and certainly not magnolia. it's even headier than real magnolias (i know, there are more types of magnolia, but this is headier than the headiest magnolia) and quite unpleasant if you ask me, at lest as top notes are …Read more

this is a pleasant fragrance, very girly and fizzy (top notes remind me a bit of fanta actually). it's perfect for a very young woman if spritzed with moderation. lasting power is rather ok.

many have said it's sweet. and it is, at least on top. but there's also something very strange about this fragrance. it also has something else in it, that's nothing sweet, it's actually sort of dark, like a deep forest. very unusual fragrance which i adore (could spend the entire day sniffing this)
