Amouage, Interlude Woman: The last Amouage I tried, was a huge hit for me. I really just loved it so much (Sunshine Woman) and I heard good things about this one. Interlude Woman, however, is not for me. There is something 'dirty' in it, that is a bit off-putting to me. Top notes are Marigold, Ginger, Grapefruit and Bergamot; middle notes are Incense, Walnut, Immortelle, Kiwi, Honey, Opoponax, Coffee, Sandalwood, Rose, Orange Blossom and Jasmine; base notes are Leather, Benzoin, Agarwood (Oud), Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Amber, Oakmoss, Vanilla and Musk.
by Kilian, Rolling in Love: Again, there are two by Kilian fragrances I have that I love, but I have tried some that I do not like, so I wasn't sure how I would feel about this one. It's almost really nice (the floral notes that drift in are so good). There's something in the initial spray though, that has a bit of a weeds or a not pleasant smell to it (maybe it's the almond milk?). It does get better after dry down (less of that 'off' smell). I wouldn't buy it, but I don't hate it. Notes: ambrette seeds, almond milk, iris, and musk.
A Lab on Fire, Messy Sexy Just Rolled out of Bed: It is nice, very soft (not loud or brash and no loud projection). I am not sure it is unique enough to buy, but it is pleasant and I'd absolutely wear it and enjoy it if I owned it. Dry down is a bit baby powdery. Note: The 2nd time I wore it the dry down was delicious vanilla. Top: Peach Blossom and Bergamot; Mid: Heliotrope and Turkish Rose; Base: Toffee, Tonka Bean, Vanilla, Musk, Cashmere Wood, Amber and Sandalwood.
Le Labo: Another 13: It smells like Creed Aventus with a lighter projection to me (also reminds me of 11 11 from Lake & Skye). I like the Creed better, but I still like this (and it sells for a much lower price). I'd wear it. Ambroxan, Jasmine Petals, Musk, Moss, Woody Ambery Notes.
Nishane, Ani: This is a rich, indulgent vanilla. It smells pretty much the same from opening to dry down, but that's okay. Listed as unisex. I can see that... I can see a woman wearing it, but I think it's perfect for a man. Cozy, sweet and a little spicy/def. vanilla. Top Notes: Ginger, Bergamot, Pink Pepper and Green Notes; middle notes are Black Currant, Cardamom and Turkish Rose; base notes are Vanilla, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Cedar, Patchouli, Ambergris and Musk.
Parfums De Marly, Meliora: So Good! I heard it is fruity, musky, green. To me it smells fresh, light and happy. I just love it. Perfectly blended. High quality. Not like anything I've smelled before. This is three out of four scents from PDM that I just love. If I keep trying them, my whole dresser is going to be full of PDM!! That's not a bad thing. Top notes are Black Currant, Red Berries and Cassis; middle notes are Rose, Ylang-Ylang and Lily-of-the-Valley; base notes are Vanilla and Musk.
Creed, Viking: I think Viking ALSO smells like Creed Aventus with a little bit of a refined barber shop type of twist. I like it a lot. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Creed knows how to make a fantastic fragrance! My oldest son fell in love with this sample and now has a full-sized bottle in his growing fragrance collection. He enjoys the scent and says it lasts all day. Pink Pepper, Calabrian bergamot and Sicilian Lemon; middle notes are Pink Pepper, Spicy Mint and Bulgarian Rose; base notes are Sandalwood, Lavender, Haitian Vetiver and Indian Patchouli.
Scent Split has been a favorite of mine since I first tried them (I have a permanent fragrance tab if you are interested in reading about scents I am trying). They have a very large quantity of scent splits to try, they ship fast (in containers that do not spill), prices are amazing, and customer service is top-notch. I can easily recommend them if you are looking to try before you buy.
I love that you give yourself gifts - something we should all do.ReplyDelete

Looks like you got yourself a great gift.ReplyDelete
These sound like they smell amazing. This would be the kind of gift I'd give myself.ReplyDelete
I don't use perfumes that much but I do agree that it's a great gift. I'm up for the idea of giving ourselves gifts.ReplyDelete
This sounds like it would be a really great brand to try out myself! Thanks so much for sharing your opinions on it.ReplyDelete
Wow isn't that such a wonderful idea to gift yourself! I am gonna make myself happy soon now since all of these scents sound amazing!ReplyDelete
These are great gift ideas for Valentine's day (pre and post event). I want to try Creed. Good packaging!ReplyDelete
A gift for yourself that is very much deserved. I would also like something other than overpriced flowers for Valentine's Day. Perfume would have been a perfect gift. I didn't spend this Valentine with Jason, a first in almost 25 years, since I was traveling, but we did exchange cards before I left.ReplyDelete
Wow. These scents sound amazing. I don't knwo who's coming up with them (and the captions) but they need a raise.ReplyDelete
Sounds fantastic! I love giving myself gifts.ReplyDelete
I have to agree I prefer perfume over flowers. A lab on fire, messy sexy just rolled out of bed sold me just by the name! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I love a good scent and even more so when they are unique and not something everyone has. The packaging for House of Oud, Dates of Delight is out of this world! How cool is that!ReplyDelete
These all sound great! I love that you gift yourself, I want to do that!ReplyDelete
Scent Split is an amazing company. I do love trying new fragrances and I love their affordable prices.ReplyDelete
It's a great idea to get yourself a Valentine's Day gift! And this one looks like it was a great thing to purchase!ReplyDelete
Perfume is the best gift. I'm definitely going to check this out!ReplyDelete
I haven't tried scents from House of Oud but I heard many good feedback about it. One of the luxurious perfume I wish to add in my collection. You've got good taste 👍👍👍ReplyDelete
Interesting ideas I found here. I also like perfume with natural, especially forest notes. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Valentine’s Day is to celebrate the one you love.of course you should treat yourself on VDayReplyDelete
