Light and non-greasy (I'm in my mid-50′s and have oily and fairly sensitive skin). A combination light moisturizer/sunscreen would be ideal. 3. Can be used near eyes without making me cry. 4. One product for face and body, please. I really like to keep "beauty" routines simple. 5. Waterproof...

Try to come up with some system to remember what you have sprayed where. Write it down if necessary. If I try several things at once, I will often put them in alphabetical order. 4. If you are not quite sure about something, but want to try it on skin, put it on the back of your hand. It...

Even when I had a 'signature scent', I would be driven to unfaithfulness by needing other things at the height of summer, or in the morning...now I have a collection to play with! SOTD is vintage Poison, which prompted me to reply to hessed about the drop-dead Rubj. I missed owning Poison...

Notes on Luckyscent are: black coconut, night queen, tiger lily, neroli, ylang ylang, ginger, basil. It is NOT like ginger tea, though. But the one I think you will WANT is Jacomo Art Collection #08. It is just the ticket and has a very refreshing ginger tea aspect. (The Non-Blonde in her...

SOTD: R'Oud Elements (Kerosene) Tried Clive Christian V last weekend in Nieman Marcus, the opening seemed a lot like R'Oud Elements but quickly diverted. I wish I had asked for a sample or small decant so that I could wear it a few more times, but from what I remember it was lovely. The ending...

The usual routine for an open thread poll: talk about anything you like — the perfume you're wearing today, the perfume wish you'd stocked up on before it disappeared, the latest bad reformulation you discovered, whatever. Or, ask a question about fragrance, then see if anyone else has asked...

There IS a mention of a candle though So I finally had a chance to get to the big city again for an afternoon of decent perfume sniffing and managed to catch up on some recent and not so recent releases and take home a bunch of samples. Some brief impressions- Bottega Veneta – I can see why...

I meant to get this poll up and running first thing this morning, but our internet access is not working so well today (so I also don't know for sure that I'll be able to join in the discussion). Better late than never? The usual open thread: talk about anything you like — the perfume you're...

Apologies for the late start (I have just returned to civilization, or at least, to wifi) but here is our usual open thread poll: talk about anything you like — the perfume you're wearing today, the perfume you wish we (or someone) would review, whatever. Or, ask a question about fragrance,...

Before we begin today's poll, a couple quick pieces of business. First, no posts tomorrow or Monday. (Happy 4th of July to everyone who is celebrating!) We'll be back on Tuesday, and the 2nd quarter damage poll will be coming up on Thursday, so dig out all those receipts. Today, the usual...
