This has been my go-to, best bb cream ever. The 4 Tan is a perfect match for me, I get slight moisturizing, misty cover that doesn't conceal but sort of hazes away imperfections and yay, sunscreen! But it's been discontinued as of 10 2019, FYI folks. I'm now in the position to start all over looking for something that works this well. It's at least the third time I've …Read more

Another reviewer who said Ruby Woo was cherry lip-gloss and cigarette smoke was correct. It’s cigarette smoke on clothes; in this case it reminds me of smoke on my leather jacket. It would be a great call-back to my punk days if it didn’t also smell like some other woman's perfume, so strongly that the lip gloss and leathery smoke elements are smothered by the sharp perfumey notes.

This started as an interesting combination of charred, smoky wood and leather, developed metallic nicotine notes and then suddenly went south when a butter note entered and ruined everything. What was an interesting, perhaps challenging scent became unwearable fast. lasting power was great: I couldn't get it to scrub off and had to kill it with sunscreen to get it out of my nose …

A simple, straight forward scent that is mostly sandalwood musk with vanilla hints. It's not bad, but it's kind of same-y to a lot of other fragrances and on my skin, it gets shrill as the sweet notes are subsumed by the woody notes.

Mostly went on my skin as a sweet wood, heavy on the wood, but it developed a fecal note as it dried down, so that it smelled like sweet feces. On my friend, it had a very pronounced urine note. A miss for us both.

This is so sheer I can barely smell it, but seems okay. I sure don't smell the true rose oils listed in the notes, though. It comes across on me more like a big production offering, which is less appealing. Still, it's okay, if not really for me.

Tory Burch's fragrances tend to be very thin and bland on my skin and this is the same, plus white florals. It's not bad, but that's not enough to get my attention.

On me, this goes on nearly pure orris butter; cool, rooty, woody. Definitely has that lipstick tinge, makeup powdery feel, but it dries into leathery/woody very fast and dries down to something akin to English Leather for Ladies AKA Grandmother perfume. Absolutely does not scrub, though I tried, I tried HARD. I am the age to be a grandmother, so I'm a bit touchy about terms like 'old …Read more
