Fragrances - CHANEL - No. 22

May/21/2010

Gosh, I'm not sure I have anything to add after Mac789's review, because her/his reaction was also my own - I was stunned. I get the incense immediately on the tail of the aldehydic opening, with the orange blossom soapiness, and the whole mélange sweetens into a fluffy meringue-like fragrance that has nothing to do with today's confectionery fragrances. It's like someone …Read more

Fragrances - Yves Saint Laurent - Opium Poesie de Chine EDT LE

I get the jasmine in this, too. It actually reminded me of TDC's Jasmin de Nuit right off the top. I was very curious to try this one, and I'm so glad a fellow MUAer sent me a sample to try. It's gorgeous, imo. I often have a hard time with big "orientals". I enjoy them on others but find them suffocating and tedious on me. This one is sheerer and much more wearable. …Read more

Fragrances - Jessica McClintock - Jessica McClintock

May/06/2010

I wore Jessica McClintock a million years ago, enjoyed it, then was bored by it and gave it away. Today, I bought a small bottle at Marshall's because I just felt like it again. Here are the fragrance notes I found online - *Top notes are cassia, basil, ylang-ylang, bergamot, black currant and lemon; middle notes are jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and rose; base notes are musk and woodsy …Read more

Wow, not so bad at all! I really like the aldehydes, powderiness and sweetness of this scent. I'm definitely getting the soapiness that others have noted. I'd wear it. Maybe I'll pick up a small bottle at Walmart. ADDING LATER: Ok, I maaaay have spoken a little too soon. I really love that sparkling top phase, but the base is a let down...and that part goes on forever …Read more

Fragrances - Prada - L'Eau Ambrée

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/02/2010

I received this as a Christmas gift and I don't know why I haven't worn it more. Sometimes it just takes me time to get acquainted with a new fragrance. I think this is a lovely scent, and a perfect amber for someone who doesn't like very sweet & powdery or macho ambers. I get more of an impression of ambergris tincture with its faint sea brininess. This morning I got a …Read more

Fragrances - L'Occitane - Eau des 4 Reines

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/01/2010

Eau des 4 Reines is a pleasant fragrance, a soapy and slightly fruity rose that also gives me a salty impression. I bought a small bottle when I was unexpectedly in south Florida during an extremely (to me) hot and humid summer, and I found it refreshing and cooling. I love the idea behind the fragrance, the four medieval queens, the four different roses that represent them all blended into …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Pleasures Exotic

I love all the Pleasures (tho' I haven't tried summer editions or splashes), and especially ♥ this one for its mango note. I find it fairly long lasting, too. Not as long lasting as Pleasures. If you like regular Pleasures and you like mango you can't go wrong with this one.

The only reason I would never buy this again is because the bottle is so huge. By the time I ever got through it I would be well and thoroughly sick of it. Anyway, that said, I really like this splash. It reminds me very much of a softened up CKOne which I enjoyed in the 90s. Can be worn by either sex, imo. It's not strictly lemony, and it has a cottony-musk dry down that I find very …Read more

Fragrances - Gale Hayman - Delicious Cotton Candy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2010

I just bought this super cheap on eBay - $20.99 including shipping. Unfortunately, mine didn’t come with the silver tone cap but with a transparent pink plastic one. This does not smell like Pink Sugar to me, because it doesn’t have the burnt note that I picked up in Pink Sugar. GH Delicious Cotton Candy has a bit of citrus brightness in the top, and then it smells pretty much like freshly …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - MAC Cosmetics - Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2010

I've been using Prep & Prime spf 50 for a couple of years now. It's my favorite primer. I do agree that the plastic tube is too hard to be able to squeeze all of the product out toward the end. And it's rather pricey, but I only use a tiny amount so a tube lasts a fairly long time (I don't use foundation every day anyway). It makes my foundation go on smoothly and …Read more
