Keiko Mecheri ~ recommendations

...Thank you for the recommendations SystemeD. I may pass on the Loukhoum, but the others sound worthy of a test run for sure, especially Ume!

Celebrity perfumes: A thread

...I love JLo's Miami Glow - sometimes I wear it in the winter when I wish it were summer. It's so uplifting to me.My latest celeb acquisition is Denise Richards - heavy on the tropical white florals, it's a great vacation scent and reminds me of Hawaii. I don't have anything else like it in my wardrobe, so it's a keeper.My old favorite is Malibu Nights by Pam Anderson. Some say it's a dupe of Coco Mademoiselle, it is a little I think too, but not completely. I really love the scent - it was my first introduction to champaca flower.

What really makes you BUY a perfume?

...I usually start with a sample purchase after I've read something you all have posted - lol. Or, I'll read about a new perfume somewhere and the notes might get me interested.The anticipation for the samples to arrive makes me joyous!Then, when I smell something that makes me swoon, I keep testing to be sure I'm still swooning before it goes on my want list. It is definitely an emotional connection. It will evoke a memory usually.I just purchased something I've been wanting for about 9 months. It was an expensive one, which will make me curtail my hunt for awhile. But, that's okay with me. I'm to the point that I want to get what I really, really want instead of a bunch of stuff I end up just feeling okay about.I know you know what I mean :lol:

Hermès perfumes

...Epimedes:Sherapop:valandria:I wish I liked Hermes, but everything smells very masculine to my nose - just too masculine smelling on me. I like some of the men's line on men though…. :DEven "24, Faubourg"? That's my all-time favorite...And how about "Calèche"? Another beautiful chypre, feminine and classy.I have not tried Caleche. I would like to though. The Merveilles weren't good on me either - after about 6 different Hermes attempts, I'm a bit skiddish.

That's my all-time favorite...8)Yes Sherapop, even 24 Faubourg. I had a big bottle of it and it just went flat on my skin. I tried wearing it for a year and it just ended up smelling like all woods on me. I thought it would be my thing since I adore amber, too.

Scents From Hell - The Most Beautific Perfumes

...Cryptic:"Alien" is completely unwearable IMHO. I got a bottle from my husband as a gift, and I spray it out the bathroom window once in a while to make the level go down. :oops:Haha - that is so funny Cryptic! I am thinking of doing that with the small bottle of Aqua di Gio my husband has. I just hate the smell of that stuff!

Hermès perfumes

...I wish I liked Hermes, but everything smells very masculine to my nose - I have owned a few and have ended up swapping them away. Recently I tried Sur le Toit, Sur le Nil, and En Mediterranee… just too masculine smelling on me. I like some of the men's line on men though…. :D

Girly Man Fumes

...Scents smell so different on everyone. I love the smell of Oud Ispahan, but cannot wear it. On the other hand my husband can rock it and it smells totally different and wonderful on him. Wear what you love!
