I've never noticed a fragrance in any of the other BB Creams I own from the brand but turns out this kinda has an old lady perfume smell. It's not very pleasant to my nose and tends to stick around even after application. This could prove a deal breaker if you're sensitive to scented facial...

First came Justin Bieber's nail polish, then came his lady perfume. Now the lady perfume has a commercial, and it's a doozy. Before we tear into Bieber's latest assault on the beauty industry, we must admit we are huge Beliebers here at Styleite. Like, have you listened to "Baby" or any of...

Still, one person's modern tuberose is another person's old-lady-perfume nightmare ("old lady" is not a term I approve of when applied to perfume, mind you, but please don't shoot the messenger), as indicated in this early review on the Macy's website: "I am a huge Madonna fan, have been...

Frédéric Malle's new Portrait of a Lady, developed by perfumer Dominique Ropion , marks the line's 10th anniversary. Happy anniversary, Frédéric Malle Editions de Parfums, and here's wishing you many, many more. Oh, and can you please do jasmine next? Portrait of a Lady is not jasmine; as...

It's pretty, easy to wear, Shalimar for those skeered of Old Lady Perfumes. Not being able to wear Shalimar does not equal that I want it changed like this. All of its personality is gone, and it's another run of the mill nice modern scent out there. Pity. So samples of both of these to...

do people ask you to recommend a perfume that smells like Perfume X that they currently wear that's still available in the stores? If you like that perfume, just wear it why waste time trying to find one like it to wear? Or does that mean something other than what I think it does? Old Lady...

street feels no compunction to give perfume a second chance. So, many people, on being challenged with an aldehydic floral, say "old lady" and don't give it another thought. Here's what I propose: The next time a fragrance strikes you as particularly old ladyish, ask the person wearing it...

Light fragrance that would work for any lady. Perfumer of the new Omnia Coral for 2012 Alberto Morillas was said to be inspired by the noble and rare red coral gemstones and imagined a voluptuous, natural scent created around the hibiscus flower and the overflowing sensation of juicy...

More on this on Thursday, but it is also a tuberose entry, one that captures a time, a look, a place, but keeps it modern so you can avoid all of those ignorant "old lady perfume" comments. I think that one is going to see me into 2011 for a couple of months and is now putting some pressure...

instead of the other way around because it is a strong perfume - literally and figuratively. It's designed for the Greta Garbos and the Katharine Hepburns, sexy, headstrong, stylish, and sophisticated women who are self-aware and unashamed of who they are or what they've done. It's been...
