Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Dazzling Silver EDT [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2012

I have always been intrigued by EL's Dazzling Silver and Dazzling Gold. When they first came out, I thought to myself that they both smelled nice and "one day", I might buy or ask for a bottle of one or both. In the meantime, I've spent the last 14 years testing and buying niche fragrances knowing Estee Lauder will always be there. Well, the time has come, the Dazzlings have …Read more

Jun/27/2011

This is the only lipstick that I have EVER repurchased....in fact, I'm on my third tube! I have very pale, slightly yellowish skin and Pigalle works perfectly on me. It's a lipstick that has actually got me compliments and I've had 2 people ask for the name and have purchased it because of how it appears on me (one said it looked very "modern"). On my skin/lips, it is …Read more

Liquid - GUERLAIN - Parure Gold - Gold Radiance Foundation

This is my HG foundation! I have fair skin with light freckles....combo on the dry side. I was using EL DW but it became drying after my 3rd bottle. I was on the lookout for another longwear foundation and stopped by the Guerlain counter for a quick peek at their color. In order to try the new Guerlain colors, I let the SA "do" my face and she used the Parure Gold. It felt …Read more

This review is for the EDP. I really like this fragrance! I usually go for heavy, dark and mysterious fragrances...well, this is not that, but...it just smells so darn good! On first whiff, I get key lime pie!! The first lime fragrance that I can tolerate - I think the vanilla warms the lime up just enough to make it delish smelling rather than barber shop lime smelling. A little later, I …Read more

Fragrances - KENZO - Amour by Kenzo EDP

Feb/10/2011

I had a small deluxe sample bottle of this that my 8 year old daughter wanted desperately so I gave it to her without first smelling it myself. The next day she came down and smelled so wonderful!! It took me awhile to realize she had put the Kenzo Amour on (since I had no idea what it smelled like)....it was incredible on her....soft, sweet, powdery and yet a little more mature than the …Read more

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Womanity Eau de Parfum

Womanity isn't Angel....period. OK, so now that that's overwith....what is it? Well, I usually say "on my skin" but in the case of Womanity I need to say "in my nose" as this fragrance is a nose scent rather than a skin scent to me. What I mean by that is it literally sticks in my nose (not sillage per se). This is one of the reasons that the longevity is …

Fragrances - Yves Saint Laurent - Belle d'Opium

Dec/22/2010

Beautiful bottle, ad campaign, heritage...boring, blah mish mash of a scent on my skin. This is one of those fragrances that was orchestrated to smell wonderful on paper...so much so that I bought it based on that (I had other fragrances on so I did not sample on my actual skin in the store - why can't I ever learn). Later, when I had a chance to properly spray the sample I had (luckily …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Beige

Aug/15/2010

I went through a 20 mL decant of Beige and then purchased the full sized honker of a bottle. I have been searching for an "everyday" office fragrance that doesn't bore me to tears and this is it!! Starts with freesia and what I perceive as honeysuckle, but then moves into a creaminess that makes it more than a floral. I don't know why I find this simple fragrance so …Read more

I've only owned VdH for a few days but I've been testing and wearing it often since I opening the box.

First sniff if straight gin and tonic! Fun that the smell of gin and tonic can be captured so well...luckily this smell lasts less than 5 minutes (I don't want to go around smelling like a spilled a drink on myself)....after that last, you're left with 100% JCE …
