Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - A Lab on Fire - What We Do in Paris Is Secret

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/13/2012

WWDIPIS is a soft, powdery, honeyed floral with a sweet cherry-almond and vanilla base. The powdery heliotrope and the cherry-almond are competing for the spotlight in the beginning, but after a while the powdery notes win and the cherry takes a break. The cherry never leaves, it just softens a bit and adds a sort of "tang" to the composition. All throughout, the honeyed florals …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Hilde Soliani- Conaffetto

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2012

To me, Conaffetto smells like a heavenly combination of orange blossoms and marshmallows. If you indulge in candied yams during the holidays like I do, then you are very familiar with the sweet and creamy smell of melted marshmallows. Take that sugary smell of melted marshmallows and mix it with orange blossoms and you have Conaffetto. I don't pick up on the bitterness and dryness of almonds …Read more

Fragrances - Le Labo - Vanille 44

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2012

Vanille 44, like other Le Labo creations, has a misleading name. The name would have you believe that vanilla dominates in the fragrance, but it doesn't. The vanilla is *technically* there, but it's playing peek-a-boo and hiding most of the time.

Vanille 44 opens with bitter and cool aldehydic citrus on top of soft amber and woody incense. The citrus softens a bit as the …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Profumum- Dolce Acqua

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2012

I had high hopes for Dolce Acqua because luckyscent's description sounded so delicious. Unfortunately, the opening smells *just* like cherry chloraseptic spray on me. Ack! It brought back bad memories of being sick and having to spray that stuff down my throat. The dry down smells like pure suntan oil. Confetto (Profumum's other almond scent) also smells like suntan oil on me. Too bad …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Roca Parfums Lemon Cloud

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2012

Lemon Cloud opens with a bright, slightly sweet lemon - no sharp edges at all. For being inspired by a dessert, it is not too sweet or sugary at all (unlike Fresh Sugar Lemon, which I find very sweet and sugary). There is something very comforting about it and I think luckyscent's description of it being "gentle" is very accurate. On me, the dry down turns softly musky and slightly …Read more

Fragrances - CREED - Sublime Vanille

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2011

Sublime Vanille always puts a smile on my face each time I wear it. It opens with creamy vanilla and a burst of lemon. The lemon is not screechy or astringent; rather, it is sweet without being sugary. As the scent develops, the lemon softens and the vanilla gets creamier, but somehow the vanilla remains uplifting and never veers into candy territory. When I wear Sublime Vanille to work, my …Read more

Fragrances - diptyque - Eau Duelle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2011

Aaah, Eau Duelle...it is so comforting and cozy. The opening is reminiscent of a vanilla gin martini - herbally, dry, with a hint of creamy vanilla. I get a lot of cardamom and juniper at the beginning, which soften as the scent dries down, but they never completely disappear. Those two notes for me is what keeps this scent refreshing and exhilarating.The vanilla becomes more prominent as the …Read more

Fragrances - Gale Hayman - Delicious Cotton Candy

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/24/2011

I never really appreciated this perfume until I had the chance to eat warm, freshly made cotton candy. The scent that emanates from warm and fresh cotton candy smells exactly like this perfume. I agree that this perfume is similar to Pink Sugar, but Delicious Cotton Candy is blended better and doesn't have that disturbing burnt note to it like Pink Sugar does. I wear this whenever I want …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Bourbon French Parfums Vanille

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2011

Bourbon French Vanille is a soft, delicate, and scrumptious vanilla perfume. It smells like a whipped vanilla and almond cloud. So heavenly! It is very similar to Anastasia, but with more yummy vanilla added in. Like Anastasia, it would be a great scent for snuggling :o) I own both in parfum strength, so I'm not sure how it differs from the edt or the cologne. The Bourbon French line …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Bourbon French Parfums Anastasia

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2011

Anastasia is my favorite almond perfume so far. The almond is not harsh like it is in Lea, which smells like almond extract to me. Instead, Anastasia is soft, pillow-y, and dreamy! It smells like a mix of almonds, vanilla, and the softest of musks. The almond note never smells like play-doh or like cherries, which sometimes happens with almond perfumes. It's a great scent to wear when …Read more
