Fragrances - diptyque - Oyedo

If you've been waiting for Demeter to make a Hall's Cough Drops PMU spray, Oyedo should tide you over nicely, because it smells exactly the way a Hall's tastes. I don't really know what to rate it because it doesn't smell bad, but I would not personally buy a bottle, so I just gave it a 3.

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Byredo - Rose Noir

Jan/23/2012

This is only mildly earthy, Byredo says it is dirty but I didn't think so. It's "dirty" in the way that Coco Mademoiselle is a bit "dirty", or even less so. It was dark, it smelled like a rose with dark florals. It was pretty but not that interesting imo. I have L'Artisan Voleur de Roses on the other arm and although I don't like it and it's not as …Read more

Fragrances - CREED - Original Vetiver

4.0

I'm a woman, and one who rarely or almost never finds men's scents unisex, but this was really nice. This is pretty close to the scent of Ivory soap. I've already tried Demeter Pure Soap and realized that I like the Ivory soap thing but it's not for me, but I think this might have been closer. I never would have expected ginger and vetiver to smell soapy, but even though …Read more

Fragrances - L'Artisan Parfumeur - The Pour un Ete

I love real jasmine tea, but this smelled like a barn on me. Hay, straw, and indole. However, if you miss the smell of the old farm and would like a nice old-fashioned barn smell without the dirt or gasoline smells found in some modern barns, this would be great. Hmm, even I can't tell when I'm being sarcastic anymore.

Fragrances - L'Artisan Parfumeur - Piment Brulant

Neat but overall a big disappointment. I love hot peppers and I have been hoping to find more scents that incorporate them- not a cinnamon fan so the DSH piment was not one I even tried- so I was excited to try this. That it contains chocolate was a nice bonus, so I thought, wow, this is going to be awesome. And for a second it was awesome, but quickly the strong hot pepper note was layered …Read more

Fragrances - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Iago

2.0

Eeveel bacon bits! I can definitely pick up the leather, and it kind of makes me really think of Iago. It smells like the smoke of fire (as opposed to incense or tobacco), and I can almost smell a hint of metal and blood. But ultimately I keep thinking of Bacos at the salad bar. It is sexy though, in a sinister way, like the kind of man you wouldn't dream of settling down and having kids …Read more

Wow, this is really herbal. I could hardly get past the piney bush smell to find the rose. I'm not willing to wait an hour or two for rose to come out of a scent, no matter how nice a rose it may be, since there are plenty of straight-up rose scents. It might be worth the wait if perfume was really hard to find, but since it's not, this is definitely not a keeper for me. It's …Read more

Fragrances - TokyoMilk - Cherry Bomb

3.0

Mar/02/2011

This started out really nice but went bad after it was on my skin for a short while. I guess it didn't agree with my chemistry. It was this nice grown-up sexy floral-plus-chocolate-cherry-ice-cream gourmand, but then it developed two weird notes that I think perhaps I can blame on the vetiver- rubber and pickle juice. So yeah. Scrubber on me, and it was so nice otherwise that that's …Read more

Fragrances - CREED - Vanisia

3.0

Feb/04/2011

I would describe this as a mature scent, powdery and old-fashioned. Not ugly, but definitely not for me. It's kind of a church lady scent and not in a comforting way, in a slightly stifling, starched, stilted way. It left a trail wherever I walked for a couple of hours even though I applied it on the top of my wrist where it could be easily washed off, and did wash it several times during …Read more

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Sa Majesté la Rose

Jan/31/2011

My goodness, with all the fuss about SL being so wonderful I thought this would be much better. Too much citrus for a scent that is supposed to be about rose. Too sharp and crisp. Maybe this is just the wrong kind of rose for me, but on top of that there is so much going on that detracts from the rose's roseness. When I was a kid someone gave me Avon Sweet Honesty. This reminds me of …Read more
