Celebrity perfumes: A thread

...I will only admit to two- J. Lo- Glow EDT(original) and Hillary Duff- With Love both won my heart immediately. O.K. three- I forgot about Elizabeth Taylor- I don't even like Gardenias, but I love this scent. Oh wait I also forgot about Gwen Stefani- Harajuku- Baby. O.k., I guess that is four...

Oh those lilies

...Great topic! I am still searching for an alternative to Lily & Spice! Has anyone tried Cdg "Lily"? I am very curious about this one and "Un Lys".

Dead-ringer fragrances as alternative

...I've just reviewed and then fallen madly in love with Innocente Fragilité by Chabaud. It is not available in the US as far as I am able to determine. I felt it was close to IF by Apothia in some ways- Chabaud's creation has a little something extra- better floral development. I am wondering what I could layer with IF to get a similar effect. All suggestions welcome.

Lollia- "At Last"- everyone is onto "Fresh" these days! ... My KM_- "Peau de Peche" and Bruno Acampora "Musc" are crying...We shouldn't feel sad, Flavorite, we should feel smug that our palettes are more refined than theirs. Bless their hearts. :lol...

Lily & Spice (Eau de Parfum) - Penhaligon's

Penhaligon's Lily & Spice

...I've had this little sample for a couple of years...I tossed it aside even knowing that it was being discontinued. Now all of a sudden, it's all I want to smell. Liquid Stargazer Lily with subtle sillage. Does anyone who has sampled/owns Penhaligon's Lily and Spice know of another fragrance that is similar in low sillage and high complexity Stargazer Lily? Thanks for any and all input!

Hermès perfumes

You read my mind!
...How timely! I just had a crazy thought a few days ago---for 2014 I will focus on learning and appreciating the house of Hermes. Next stop is a FB of "Voyages", but after that I will go on a purely academic adventure of the entire available Hermes collection. So exciting! Cheers!

Lindenflower

...agree with Flavorite about Library of Flowers-Tilleul. Great linden scent, good longevity and sillage. The line includes soap and bath oil as well...

What Scents Have You Pulled Out For Fall's Cooler Weather?

...Sleuth:Good idea. If you don't know what to wear, spray on something that you don't wear often.I've been wanting to try out Hiris. How fresh and/or interesting is its dry down?Hiris is really quite fascinating! It is very strongly Carrot stew smelling to me for the first 30 minutes, then it becomes very just showered fresh and dries down powdery clean musk. It is strong and good sillage, the thing that I go back and forth on with it- while I am glad I got a FB, I know that I only need one to last my whole life- it's that overwhelming carrot top...some days it is interesting and other days I feel like I have the hot moist breath of a horse whose just enjoyed a bunch of carrots standing directly over me. It's worth try now (Northern Hemisphere), Southern Hemisphere friends- please wait until Fall! And if carrots, fresh soil and rooty earthy iris is generally unappealing- skip this one. As it definitely works better in cool weather Fall, Winter, Spring- Summer is definitely a NO-NO for this beauty.

Comments on perfumes: compliments and insults

...Sorceress:I've been wearing Habinita lately. And I've had two comments from two males, and I never get comments.The first one wasn't so much a comment but an action. I go for physical therapy right now for an injury, and the young man that is addressing my injury and I talk about all sorts of things. The day I was wearing Habinita, he said he "wanted to show me some photos from his cell phone". So he suddenly sits next to me on the table. (which he never did before) And he sits really close. I swore he was inhaling me, because he went through a bunch of pics with long descriptives. It was just funny to me how he was acting.The second one happened when I got a flat tire. The tow truck comes, the operator of the truck gets out, and fixes my flat. He starts this conversation with me, etc., and he's really talkative. And standing close. Then he leaves. My friend in the car wants to go to a fast food place across the street afterwards. So we go. Who's also there, but the tow truck guy. He sees me, jumps up from his table, comes up to the counter pulls out his cell phone, and shows me a photo of his dog and starts talking to me. Then he invites us to sit with him. So we do. As we're talking, he suddenly tells me, he smelled my perfume outside the car. My friend gives me the eye. Then he says, "Are you a woman that sprays the air and walks through her perfume? It just smelled so wonderful." This was outside in 30 degree weather, no less. Needless to say, Habinita has that effect on men apparently. My friend on the way home begged me for a decant of it....lol.Habinita....hmmmm....interesting! It must go on my test list; One never knows when one might have car trouble!!!
