if you like orange scents try paradise by nest. it's top note is blood orange. it's wonderful. i wrote an email to the company for a sample and they sent me two of each ! i'm very allergic to some smells which is why i asked them for samples. they were very generous.

Um, if we're going to talk about GAP scents, I need a tissue handy because I am still heartbroken that OM went the way of the dinosaur... :scared:

 

@ The most basic difference between EDT and EDP is that Eau de Toilette has a lower concentration of perfume oil, therefore it is usually cheaper. Eau de Parfum has a bit more perfume oil (on average 5% more), so it can smell a bit stronger and last longer (in theory). BUT sometimes the same scent in EDT and EDP smells totally different, so there's no harm in preferring one to the other - in general I find that a scent that seems a bit off in one variation works well in the other! :smilehappyyes:

 

@@nerdi Sephora 3x points on fragrance is February 5th - 15th, if I am not mistaken. :D

 

Yup, it's VERY important to look up a scent- (there's one called Fragrantica but I'm afraid to link it, but search your perfume and it will tell you all the notes in a perfume and you can compare an EDT to EDP, It will also give you a list of similar perfumes, and you can look up fragrances by notes), because as you said, EDTs are traditionally SUPPOSED to just contain lower concentrations of the actual perfume, but MANY brands nowadays make EDTs that are a "lighter" (scent-wise) version of the original EDP, like a summer/daytime version vs the EDP's nighttime/winter version, and they can smell TOTALLY different.

 

 

I prefer heavy scents. My favorite (non-indie) scents are I Love New York For All, Viktor & Rofl Bon Bon and Flowerbomb, Oscar de la Renta Oriental Lace, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle layered under Vanille Abricot, and several Gaultier scents. But I own about 200 bottles of perfume, including almost all of Marc Jacobs's perfumes, because I am a nut for Marc Jacobs everything (his clothes and especially his shoes & handbags make up a majority of my wardrobe!- My shopping addictions went like this: Clothing, then shoes, then handbags, then perfume, makeup, and now it's candles and home accessories for my new home, lol.)

I fell in love with Cartier Declaration d'un Soir, then found out it's supposedly a men's cologne.  DGAF, I still bought a big bottle and wear it every day.

@@Shalott i used to have that issey miyake florale in the pink bottle. i really liked it at first -- but it's been very very very strong on the rose, and that's all i can smell most the time, so i ended up selling it on ebay. sounds like it might be right up your alley! :)

I think Feb 5 to 14th? Something like that. I can't believe I forgot Sung, by Alfred Sung. I wore that for years, but either my last bottle was spoiled somehow, or I can't wear it anymore. I'll be bummed if I can't wear it anymore.

I've found that perfume that spoil all sort of have the same "off" smell, after you spray it on. At least that's how the last 2 bottles that I tossed were. One was issey edt and one was a discontinued bbw one called serenity (still very sad I didn't use that bottle up when it still was good). They both had the same "off" base note.

 

Now I know if I smell that, it's time to toss the bottle.

IMO, most Atelier scents actually smell better on men. Even the more traditionally feminine ones that I thought I wouldn't like made me want to jump my ex-fiance whenever he wore them.

I'm going to make my DH try them then! I hope this theory is true because I actually love orange sanguine on myself but cedrat enivrant is a little too masculine even for me (tho it works when I layer it with orange). He hates cologne of any kind tho so I'll have to come up with some reason to spray on him.

 

Can't wait to jump the hubs! :lol:

@ Do you have a link to the page where you can select from old point perks that still have inventory? Sounds right up my alley!  :P  I'm hoping they add some new point perks tomorrow. I've been stalking the website hoping that the mini MJ lipstick will appear.

Yay for perfume talk. I used to only use B&BW body sprays and have lately been hoarding perfume samples to find something I love (and boy have my preferences changed! Not sure if it's just I'm getting older/body chemistry stuff or what, but things that I used to not like at all are now things I have been drawn to more).

I think I will have a $25 Sephora GC earned from Swagbucks  in time for the extra points sale and I want to grab one of those $24 sets that have the voucher for a rollerball. (do those type of sets count towards that promor?) Originally, I figured I would probably grab the Spray of Sunshine over the Perfume Sampler For Her...but now they have added the Spritz of Glam set, which I think I might go with, I have tried less of those already.

 

From the set, I've seen you guys talking about the Chloe scent and I have tried the Gucci Guilty and MJ Daisy, but was wondering if any of you have opinions on the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb or the Philosophy Amazing Grace, since those are two I am most curious about from the set.

@ - Love's Baby Soft it still in drugstores today.   I don't think Avon was associated with it.  I had a friend who wore it so, I never felt I could really get into it.  I had to be different.  I did get it for my daughter for nostalgia's sake.  Of course, like Winnie the pooh and all things I liked as a kid, she didn't see my excitement. :)

Love amazing grace - it's a very light scent and I think a lot of people like it. It's generally pretty inexpensive tho - I think the rollerball is $20 so not as worth it. Also doesn't last very long.

 

I'm not personally a fan of flower bomb but I know people that love it.

 

I think there is another set also $24 but with a few other options.

Also they had a ton of formula x on sale- grabbed alchemy, since I had heard so many good things about it!

Amazing grace is one of my favorite scents ever! It lasts all day on me and I get compliments every time I wear it. It's so fresh and clean, but not "laundry" smelling.

I got the same email. I'm not sure it's really that much of a benefit since I have free rouge shipping until the end of 2015 and that's when the flash expires too.

Okay. I made the "Make your own Vitamin C" thread. It needs revision probably, but I posted it now because I wrote it all out once and then lost it ;( :(. i'm about to go to bed, but I'll be available in the thread or the other place to answer any questions!

I love Formula X Alchemy! I actually considered getting a backup bottle but then convinced myself that I have so much polish that I'll never even get through the one I already have. The formula for Alchemy is pretty good, I did a mani with it at home that lasted nearly a week before chipping.

Just placed an order that's been sitting in my cart for awhile with code 'Romance':choose one of three (Niche, Luxe and Most Loved) 8piece asst fragrance samples in a pouch which looks like the one from last year when they did this. The niche one is almost entirely things I like, and in some cases *cough*Beachwalk*cough* refuse to pay the price they want for an actual bottle since I wear so many things and not a signature scent.

I also heard that bonus points with fragrance purchases is starting soon, so that might be a nice order for scent-lovers (or a good time to stay away for those not into hoarding a bazillion little stinky testers), as it looks like there are mostly perfume/cologne for up for samples as well. I was able to get an E&J Nirvana Black sample, which is the one thing I wear in rotation that was in the freebie sets but not the niche one I grabbed.

    • Now I'm happy because I bought an expensive set of cosmetics and a large organizer. I work as a makeup artist and have long dreamed of changing my professional tools and cosmetics. Thanks to payday loan company North Carolina, my dream came true. I think a loan is a good way to fulfill your dreams.
    • As aging, more and more spots will appear on the skin, especially on our face. It’s our nature to pursue beauty that all of us want to make our skin looks clean and spotless, so most of us use a thick foundation to cover the spots.   But if we know where the stains come from, maybe we will not be so anxious. Usually there are two key reasons that cause the spots because the pigmentation of the skin is closely related to the melanocytes in the basal layer of the skin: 1. One is that the melanocytes in the base of the epidermis increase, which will form a nest of melanocytes, such as pigmented nevus; 2. The another is that melanocytes synthesized by melanocytes are increased, such as sun spots, age spots, and chloasma.  What results in melanocytes increasing? Besides it’s genetic, the most important reason is from solarize.   The ingredients that can cause damage to the skin in the sun are well-known ultraviolet rays. Among them, ultraviolet(UVB) can act on the epidermis, which promotes the synthesis of melanin particles in melanocytes, the increase of  melanocytes, and various pigmentation problems.   Therefore, more importantly, the most importantly for us to get rid of the spots on our skin is to do the best sun protection that you can.   What’s more, CARE II believes that there’s a little difference for different skin type, so we’d better to know the skin type first.   There are four basic types of skin: dry, oily, normal and combination skin. Skin type is determined by genetics, though it can be change according to the various internal and external factors.   1. Dry Skin Dry skin feels tight and rough and look dull. The only advantage of dry skin is that it’s not easy to be oily. But mostly you feel the skin is tight and it’s prone to peeling, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging, because dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.   2. Oily Skin Oily skin is completely opposite with the dry skin and it has a glossy shine and visible pores. Oily skin is prone to greasy feeling, and it’s prone to problems such as enlarged pores and hemorrhoids because of the heightened sebum production.   3. Neutral Skin or Normal Skin Neutral skin is well balanced, neither too oily nor too dry, which is the best skin condition. Maybe the T-zone is a bit oily, but overall sebum and moisture is balanced and not like oily skin or dry skin.   4. Combination Skin As the name suggests, combination sky consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin, for example, the T-zone is often oily because of the strong oil secretion, which will result in rough skin, thick pores, acnes, but the cheek skin is relatively dry and delicate compared with the T-zone, and there will be dryness, desquamation and even red blood, stains and wrinkles issues if the skin hasn’t be taken care well.   Now you know what kind of skin type you are, right? Here CARE II wants to clarify the advantages and the disadvantages of the four skin types.   Skin Type Advantages Disadvantages Dry Skin Not oil Fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging Oily Skin Moisturize Enlarged pores, acnes Normal Skin Well balanced Easy to be influenced by seasons Combination Skin The cheek skin is delicate Need to take care separately, the T-zone and the cheeks. If not take care carefully, many skin problems will be caused.   You can take care of your skin by the skin type you are.   Besides the reasons that CARE II mentioned above, there are also other reasons, like make-up dirt, stay up late, lack of sleep.   Some tips for you to get spotless skin: 1) Sun Protection-Shade, sunglasses, clothing and hats provide the best protection     -Try best to avoid the sunshine in the midday     -Check the UV index by your phone, if it’s 3 or above, please do sun protection     -Use sunscreen, at least SPF 30+     -Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours 2) Cleanse Your Skin Cleanly-Remove the makeup thoroughly     -Cleanse your skin cleanly by CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing brush. 3)  Sleep Early and Sleep Well     - It’s not only for your skin health, but also for your body health, extremely important! 4)  Massage your skin    - You can use CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing massager to massage your skin.   Alright, you’ve already known what skin type you are and known how to take care of your pigmentation skin. That’s cool!

We usually have to surf other sites to find such important information. Nevertheless, planets and houses are usually mentioned and thanks God, they are easy for understanding
