Maybe I'll enjoy those kinds of perfumes when I'm older, but right now the florals, fruities and orientals suit me better.

^ I forgot all about that! I really wanted to smell Fracas (they said it smells like sex, and that's right up my alley) after reading about it. The next time i go to Sephora I'll try to see if it's there.

^

The only problem with Fracas is the price. Too expensive.

The EDP isn't so expensive. US$45 for the 1 oz bottle on Sephora. But US$80 for the 0.25oz parfum is .

I think they're a great place to start, and generally just a great place to explore lots and lots of different perfume notes, to learn what you yourself really like. I learned that Snake Oil (the perfume, as everyone often says) didn't smell that great to me, not the ultimate seduction but more like a spicy old lady. I soon moved on to Bastet, among others that suited me better. They're much cheaper than regular perfumes, even the samples, so if you don't like one scent, it isn't a big loss. I say definitely go for it

What I found true about the oils is that they're fresher. I put Black Pearl into my just-damp hair after a shower, and the rest of the day I caught whiffs of the most beautiful, most alive coconut ever. And recently I was trying a non-bpal perfume by Givenchy, forget the name, and it smelled so cheap, so processed, like the worst polyester moments of the eighties with a bit of grace. Not all commercial perfumes are like that, but I do think the Black Phoenix Alchemy lab is something special, one way or the other.

Glad you like the thread.

So what are the Hermès samples you got?

Christian Lacroix has created a perfume with Avon Uk!

It is only £18 pounds, but I don't know what it smells like. SO I am going to get it anyway and maybe if I hate it, I will sell it on Ebay.

I found out about Kate Moss' fragrance yesterday and I thought "what the hell?". Everybody has a perfume these days. A while ago my sister and I joked about releasing a perfume on the behalf of our cats. I bet we'd make a lot of money on that.
