Celebrity perfumes: A thread

...Sometimes I feel like a brand has become a celebrity status itself, like Juicy Couture, Guess, Thierry Mugler, etc. Am I strange for thinking this?

Celebrity perfumes: A thread

...I liked Covet by SJP for a while. It was an unusual perfume that I liked to sniff. I fell out of love with it after my boyfriend said it smells like a grassy a$$. :(Nowadays, I like Hidden Fantasy because it smells like orange cake or wassail, so I wore it during the winter holidays.I have been reaching for Katy Perry's Meow often this weekend. I have taken a liking to vanilla and pear this winter. As boring as some people find the two notes, I find them pleasant. Taylor Swift's Taylor is a soft and sweet (but not too sweet) apricot and sandalwood scent. JLo's Live Luxe is a fresh variety of melons, peach, and pear. The bottle is also very beautiful.Even though I like all of these, I have grown bored of them rather quickly with the exception of Hidden Fantasy and Meow. I am not sure why.

Red Velvet Cupcake Perfume/Oil

...I found an etsy shop that is defunct but the owner answered my PM if she could make me some red velvet body oil. If I can get it, I'll test it and report back the results. :D

Red Velvet Cupcake Perfume/Oil

...Hip Hop Candy has a red velvet roll-on I like. No spray though. :( They sell 50 cent samples if you want to try instead of buying a roll-on.http://www.hh-candy.com/product/fragrance-samples/red-velvet-cupcake-sample/As far as a full perfume or spray, I haven't come across one yet.

11 Iconic Perfumes of the 80s

...Dalmajen, my best friend's mother loved KL dearly. She had said how she wanted another bottle but it was impossible to find. At the time, I had no idea and volunteered to look for her. Then I went on eBay and saw the prices. The price people have to pay to relive a part of the past is craaaazy.

What really makes you BUY a perfume?

...A lot of times I am influenced by the ads of new and/or popular fragrances in fashion magazines or flyers from Ulta. I go to a store to test and determine if I like it or not. 50% of the time, I do. Then I wait for a voucher (like $10 off, $20 off, etc) or a % off coupon that is applicable to perfume and may buy it.

Coffee notes in perfume

...Bond No 9's I Love New York for All, Bond No 9's New Haarlem, and Comptoir Sud Pacifique's Vanilla Mokha come to mind. They might be too sweet for you though, not sure.

Best/worst/weirdest new perfumes of 2013?

...Best: Prada Candy L' Eau (I didn't expect to like this one at all, but it is light, fresh, and sweet)Worst: Jo Malone London's Sugar and Spice collection (all the scents were pretty boring for me after testing multiple times; I expected better given how much I like necatarine blossom and honey)Weirdest: Lôjazz and Lôant (one smelled like moth balls, the other like crushed ants--however I really enjoyed Lôvann)

Dior Addict pre-2012

...To be fair, I did spend a good half an hour decanting 20 mL to two 10 mL vials. The original sprayer broke, so I had to user pliers to take off the "top" and use another sprayer top that leaked occasionally on my fingers. It was a kitchen sink worthy kind of mess, haha.

Dior Addict pre-2012

...Yeh, it came off after some scrubbing. I guess I found it crazy that there was an amber/red/orange color to the juice that's in a blue bottle. Maybe I'm the crazy one.I decanted the perfume in my kitchen sink, and the dishes ended up smelling like Addict when I was cleaning them. Intense indeed!

Dior Addict pre-2012

...It does help. I was just worried something happened to the liquid. The smells is great though, I can still smell it on my fingers this morning. Thank you, Sorceress. :)

Dior Addict pre-2012

...I finally decanted a bottle of Dior Addict into a bottle with a working sprayer. When I decanted it, I was surprised to see the juice is a red orange color. Have others noticed this with their Dior Addict as well? I'm a little concerned to wear it because in the decanting process, the tips of my fingers turned orange. I don't want to stain my clothes with it, but maybe the solution is to wear black or brown...
