Bronze is quite a nice surprise. I love that it has no incense notes like EL Bronze Goddess which dries to a ashy smell and not a clean one like Bronze. I have the roller ball version and I'd love to try a spray. I appreciate that it dries down to almond vanilla cookie. It reminds me of Dana O'Shee by BPAL so much so that I did a double take on what I actually put on this morning.

Well I sought this perfume out after going to Disney World, and staying in one of the hotels there (for work believe it or not!). They had this scent in the lobby and the hotel was an aquatic themed one which I cannot recall the name of at the moment. The bath products were all bliss and matched the lobby scent. Of course with the strong scent memory of Disney World I wanted to relive the …Read more

Smells consistent with Neil Morris, in other words, the same base. I have FBs of both Coral and Afire both which I enjoy greatly. This one is not so much. For some reason, I get a sense of walking into Michaels craft store with his scents. That or a Yankee Candle Store. It can get overwhelming, as all of his frags seem to slap you upside the head with intensity. You just have to be into that sort …Read more

Powdery vanilla. How do those things even go together, but they do! Your go-to sleepy time fave, your pillow mate, your stuffed animal, your snuggley fabric softener scent. It could work in all cases. Lies low, just for you to enjoy.

This falls into the category of "velvety rose". The rose is tempered with some spice--but I don't get the reference to Voleur Des Roses because that hits you over the head with its patchouli. I do not get much patch in this concoction more musky undertones (a la Bond West Side). I agree with the synthetic comments on first spray thankfully it disappears. What floods my mind right …Read more

This smells reminiscent of Chloe Narcisse in depth. It's tuberose with vanilla essentially and yes it's strong and yes it's 80s but there is nothing like it. I really hate how it looks, and I keep imagining giving it away but I can't. It's unique and boozy woozy and it envelopes you like a tropical velvet cloak. So sexy and perfect--whether you just want to curl up in …Read more

Sprayed this at my local TJ Maxx. It immediately reminded me of the Yosh Pirate scent called Buxom which I wrote a review on YEARS ago. It brought back memories of that scent and now I wish I had it back. The Bebe version is spicy, a bit vanillic and there is a sensual rose somewhere in there. I liked it, but didn't purchase til I saw how it wore on my skin. Did not last very long and lost …Read more

Boy what a color for green eyes! A gorgeous plummy red brown with sparkles. More like copper in some ways than bronze but who cares. I even like the applicator which is rather easy to control though pretty standard. I got mine for 1.99 at Grocery Outlet on west coast so I can't complain. I recently reviewed Eclipse eyeliner by Prestige and this one has surpassed that by far. It's not as …Read more

To me this smells just like Coco Mademoiselle without the patchouli note. I suspect that patch note makes CM stay on longer because Carolina edt doens't last for long on me but boy is it nice. I have been really wanting Coco Mademoiselle so maybe that's why it's on the brain but this is just about the same thing. I received it as a gift (THANKS Margaret if you're out there …Read more

Sorry y'all, but this smells like a man's vetiver based scent to me. I am not that into it....I recall the CDG Vetiveru as something I really did like but swapped away because it was too masculine and this is similar in feel to that minus the saltiness of the former. Of all the Escentric scents, the only one I want to own is Escentric 01.
