Disappointing. I saw this at Chemist Warehouse (Australia) going for 30 bucks. Read all the reviews. Thought, gee that's sounds interesting. I really love 'Stash' and 'Covet' and respect Ms Parker immensely for her contributions to fragrance, especially making good quality niche-type perfumes so affordable. So off home I went to add it to my 'Amber-centric' …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - 10 Corso Como

Sep/22/2017

It is extremely amusing to me that most of the reviews across the various fragrance sites include comments that 10 Corso Como has been reformulated and is now 'a shadow of its former self', 'disappointing compared with the 90's release', 'not as good as I remember', 'weak and watered down'. I have a small amount left in my original bottle (which I …Read more

Well I'm not sure if this is still discontinued because I just bought two bottles from my local chemist warehouse (Australia). When it was released a few years ago, I didn't try it. Just recently I've become a BIG fan of SJP 'Stash' - have gone through 3 x 100ml bottles after developing a very strong addiction to it myself and also receiving a monumental number of …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Stash by SJP

Stash is a gorgeous, languid, vetivery, musky incense. Could easily be a very expensive niche fragrance. Will not appeal to the masses. Will not appeal to under 25's unless they are very confident. Would smell great on a man. No fruit, vanilla or detectable florals. Churchy incense, sharp pencil shavings, a sting of leather, a hint of parchment paper, vague grapefruit skin compost and …Read more

Have always loved this stuff but it's ridiculously expensive. I have fine curly hair which I blow dry straight. That means by day two or three, it's flat and a bit greasy but the ends are starting to curl naturally. When I spray this stuff into my hair, instantly it has volume and no grease. It feels like a combination of dry shampoo, medium hold hairspray and a light texturiser. Three …Read more

English Pear & Freesia Bath Oil. If you are extravagant enough to have ever dreamed of taking a bath in French Champagne, then this is what you might imagine. I normally use the Red Roses Bath Oil. I don't wear florals very well as fragrances. I'm more of a dirty musk, lush amber, bold oriental lover. But when it comes to 'The Bath' (and I say that with reverence because …Read more

I'll make this short and sharp, as it is the first review for this fragrance and there'll be plenty to follow. For those who remember the 1970's musks, this is the original Coty Wild Musk Oil with a big lick of amber and much better lasting power. Absolutely fantastic and sexy as hell, even though it leans-to-clean in terms if an amber-musk combo. One lippy off for not being more …Read more

Christian Dior Eau Sauvage illuminated and smoothed out to suit the 21st Century woman. Splendid twist on the masculine and very sexy Eau Sauvage with an upbeat and slightly more feminine feel. Citrussy to be sure but not so much the light refreshing style that often resembles sorbet. More like the enlivening, confident kind with more green and herbs than a die hard citrus lover could probably …Read more

When I first bought this, I wore it a few times and really didn't like it. The scent overwhelmed me with a note I can only describe as 'greasy' vanilla. Like a cold pot of vanilla, rum and spices floating in....greasy oil. Weird and a bit sickening. So I left it in the cupboard and ignored it. Then two weeks ago I started wearing it again. But I didn't spray it anywhere near …Read more
