10 Crosby Looking Glass by Derek Lam

After a good wear test, I find that this scent gets better and better after several hours. Starts out a bit screechy on my skin, but the tonka in the drydown warms it up and leaves a soft huggable vibe for the rest of the wear. Good longevity and soft sillage with 2 sprays; just how I like it!

Lovely You by Sarah Jessica Parker

This is a "lovely" addition to the Lovely lineup. The plum is soft and nicely balanced with the vanilla and florals. I have all of the flankers and this is my favorite of the lot. Good smellie!

Lost Cherry by Tom Ford

Lost Cherry is a great name for this one: 10 minutes after spraying, it's G-O-N-E. Interesting that longevity is good for some people and zero on others....

Hello Printemps by Yves Rocher

Smells great for 5 minutes, then it's G-O-N-E. I seriously only get a few minutes of wear on my skin.

What about Pop by House of Oud

Gorgeous! Such a great gourmand that's fun and pretty. I'm totally in for a 7ml travel size, but the full bottle is out of my budget....love it though!

Girl of Now by Elie Saab

Girl of Now is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. A bit heavy the first few minutes as it dries down, but then it stays just the perfect sweetness and almond/pistachio creaminess for hours after. This is a bit heavier than the normal scents I choose for the office, but as long as I apply it an hour or so before work, it's the perfect sillage when I get there. Already looking to buy the flanker "Girl of Now Shine" because this is so good!

Champagne Apple & Honey by Bath and Body Works

One of many BBW sprays that I like to use after a shower and before bed....

Eau des Merveilles by Hermès

Eau de Merveilles is GLORIOUS! Maybe it's the way it mixes with my skin chemistry is just soooo good. The saltiness and the orange are such a good balance. Sillage is arm's length, and longevity is 8+ hours. BEAUTIFUL!

Tous Happy Moments by Tous

I really enjoy this happy gem of a scent! It's a lightweight fruity floral with a hint of gourmand, that's perfect for the office or any day setting. The pineapple note is the most prominent note on my skin, and it smells true to life. Happy Moments works any time of year, and it's affordable to boot. What's not to like? I reach for my sample over and over and will absolutely buy a full bottle as soon as I need to.....

Stella by Stella McCartney

Stella is always the right choice when I don't have an idea of what fragrance to wear. It's perfect for the office, daytime/evening, any season, and is unlikely to offend anyone. It's pleasant and comfortable. I wish the formulation hadn't changed though....the older version was so much better!

Believe by Britney Spears

Love this perfume....this is one of Britney's older perfumes that doesn't get as much attention as it should. I particularly like the "hippie" patchouli note in the drydown....it's really balanced well with the sweetness of the other notes. GOOD STUFF!

Katy Perry's Indi by Katy Perry

To my unsophisticated nose, this is a spot-on dupe for JHaG's Sunny Side Up....Great price and lasts all day...

Green Tea Mimosa by Elizabeth Arden

Green Tea Mimosa is my favorite in the Green Tea line. It's fresh and clean, powdery and light. GREAT ONE!

My Green Summer by Yves Rocher

I have really enjoyed My Green Summer the past few weeks. It really cuts thru the heat and humidity; it seems comparable to D&G Light Blue to my nose, but a bit crisper and definitely a better price point. Thumbs up! :)

Poopoo Pidoo by Ego Facto

Poopoo Pidoo was the very first sample I ever ordered from Luckyscent, many years ago. Last year I finally bought a bottle. I LOVE THIS SCENT. It's soft, gentle, a bit vintage, and totally ladylike. Highly recommended!

Euphoria by Gorilla Perfume [Lush]

Maybe my sample is old, but I can't smell this 10 minutes after spraying? These are all notes that I like, but I get nothing! :)

Candy Sugar Pop by Prada

Wearing a sample of Candy Sugar Pop, and I believe I like it a bit better than the original Prada Candy. If I put my nose to wrist, I can pick up the apple note, which freshens this up and lightens it....

Lemon Éclair by Ganache Parfums

One of the best gourmands I've ever had....my only beef is that it fades away in just a couple of hours on my skin. But is smells EXACTLY like a lemon eclair...the lemon is truly fresh and foody, and doesn't do that "furniture polish" smell! Love!

UPDATE, Oct 28, 2019....Don't know what has changed, but I wore this last night, and I can still smell it on my skin...longevity does not match my previous comment from last year??? :)

White Tea by Elizabeth Arden

I'm really enjoying this one! On my skin, I get a nice opening of clary sage, and then primarily the ambrette seed for the rest of the wear. Longevity is a good 6 hours before it fades; I would love to try some of the body products to keep it going a bit longer. I've been reaching for White Tea a lot lately...great for fall/winter!

And The World Is Yours by A Lab on Fire

WOW! This is just gorgeous, as I expected! Mr. Ropion is one of my favorite noses; I own several of his creations and love them all. The neroli and spices are perfectly blended, and the vanilla musk brings everything together beautifully. Sillage is excellent....it's actually projecting a bit louder than I usually prefer....but it's not overwhelming. This is NOT daytime/office perfume, at least in my world. This is evening, date night, claim your own Oscar in a ballgown perfume. Beautiful! PS. It's time to sample more of A Lab on Fire's scents! I love "What We Do in Paris is Secret"....it's time to sample 'em all!

D&G La Tempérance 14 by Dolce & Gabbana

I never realized how much I enjoy ambrette until recently....it's really nice in this scent. La Temperance 14 fades to a skin scent in just a couple of hours, but sometimes that's exactly what I want. Perfect for the office or anywhere where you need to go light. Like this one a lot!

Don't Get Me Wrong Baby Yes I Do by Etat Libre d'Orange

I really like this scent, but on my skin it's gone in about 2 hours. Sillage is very light too, but I actually prefer that.....

Etat Libre d'Orange is my fave niche house!

Sex On The Beach by Demeter Fragrance Library

Smells GREAT.....for all of 10 minutes. Then it's G-O-N-E. I guess I'll spray a lot more next try! :)

Clémentine California by Atelier Cologne

This is a real winner, but citrus is not the main note that I get with this Atelier. My skin pulls way more juniper than clementine with this scent....

Good stuff!
