Givenchy Organza Indecence.

Givenchy Organza Indecence.

I acquired an original bottle recently and I am now adding Givenchy Organza Indecence to my top 5 favorite perfumes. It’s that good. It’s that memorable.  It’s absolutely delicious.

The odor of burnt marshmallows, the scent of match tip’s sulphur when you blow it out, the remnants of moonlit campfires smoking embers. Cinnamon and vanilla in a perfect creamy blend, amber tempered, layered with a mildly fruity plum, Indecence envelopes you with an earthy presence immediately that stays throughout the duration of the perfume. A sense of warm patchouli surrounds the notes to complete this very spicy fragrance.

Organza is a season-less scent, full of smoky images. It’s thick and only gets thicker as the hours go by. Dab in your application or you will be overwhelmed. It’s an intense perfume.

There is a newer bottle available that is a rectangle instead of the original one shown above. My review is for the original bottle. Both are available online. Organza, an oriental woody,  was created in 1999 by Norbert Bijaoui and Jean-Claude Delville.

Top Notes: Patchouli, Brazilian Rosewood.

Middle Notes: Plum, Ceylon Cinnamon.

Base Notes: Amber, Musk, Vanilla.

Peace.

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh. What’s In A Name?

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh.

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh.

No hesitation here, this starts out smelling like a masculine fragrance. Give it to its dry down and you have the yin-yang of the female and male existence of perfumery. Cosmic life explained in a bottle. (How thoughtful of Kate Walsh.) The coming together of two opposites in one bottle that you can now apply onto yourself without the benefit of “him” being there.

Never really needing “him” takes on a whole new meaning. Or, you can think of pining for “him” through the purchase of a perfume that reminds you of “him” but it’s not “his”, its’ “yours”, because it’s marketed for women, it’s just another ad campaign for suckers, rather, I mean consumers.

I get this sad image of lonely people crying, sniffing their generic smelling wrist because it reminds them of “him”. Really?

There’s a world of perfumes out there for you ladies, just for you, designed to make you feel good, designed to work with your body chemistry and evoke positive thoughts. Not evoke images of “Michael, John, Rob, Steven, Kevin, Joe, Josh, Sebastian, Brian, Robert, Pablo…” which are the names emblazoned on the bottle. Of her former boyfriends.

Yes, the concept is amusing. But it falls short of bringing in the sexual aura needed that might have hit this one out of the ballpark. Had it been reminiscent of a vis-à-vis romp with any of the notes in its composition, then the sensuality and rawness would have made Boyfriend complete. Otherwise, it falls flat as simply spraying a small amount of your significant others’ favorite fragrance on to remind you of them. Save your money and do that instead.

The plum seems to be the highlight with a slight musk while the woods surround the entire composition. Florals, none. The myrhh lies low and intermingles with the woods as one would expect with a man’s fragrance. There is a rich deepness bringing to mind vanilla, more like gingerbread that appears for awhile and wraps the fragrance together. Not long-lasting, not short either, just middle of the road. Stays close to the skin. There is a reminiscent feel to Prada Amber.

If you really feel you must wear this, it’s a choice to wear in the evening at home or at leisure while relaxing. Definitely sample before you buy to see how you enjoy a fragrance that starts out with a male top and ends with a female bottom. Oh yeah, wouldn’t that be called submissive? And that’s what buying a bottle called “Boyfriend” reminds me of….but all in all it’s a decent frag that I do like.

Definitely different in today’s world of sweet, fruity compositions. Boyfriend is musky, mature, spicy and seasonless. Not for a LBD, but it does have its sensual overtones.

The starting price is ridiculous that I saw at Sephora. Within a few weeks it went to a fraction of its original cost on the clearance rack, where I snagged a bottle. For the clearance price, it was well worth it. That made me much happier to wear it. I still don’t like the name, but I do like the fume when I’m in the mood for feeling like a lumberjack.

Fragrance Notes: Musk, Amber, Myrhh, Plum, Woodsy Notes, Jasmine, Lily-Of-The-Valley.

Boyfriend, a floral woody musk, is available through the secondary market on auction sites.

There are eight installments for Boyfriend on YouTube. Here is #1. Enjoy.

Peace.

Reb’l Fleur by Rihanna … Sweet, Tart Muskiness That Lasts…And Surprises The Wearer.

Posted in amber, Caroline Sabas, coconut, hibiscus, musk, patchouli, peach, Perfumer's Noses, plum, Reb'l Fleur, red berries, tuberose, vanille, violet with tags , , , , , , on March 17, 2014 by sorceressofthedark
Reb'l Fleur.

Reb’l Fleur.

Reb’l Fleur by Rihanna, the first of her forays into perfumery, launched in 2010. Considered a chypre floral, it is made in collaboration with perfumers Caroline Sabas and Marypierre Julien.

Caroline Sabas is the nose to work on such perfumes as A Rather Novel Collection Taverns & The Hague  by Caroline Sabas, Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, Badgley Mischka Couture, Calvin Klein Downtown, Rihanna Rebelle,  Charles Jourdan The Parfum, Christian Audigier for Him, Faith Hill, Oud Orange Intense, Jennifer Lopez Glowing, Sunkissed Glow and Miami Glow, Fresh Cannabis Santal, Natori, Nicole Miller Frenzy, Shania Twain Shania Starlight, Sean John Unforgivable for Men, Kim Kardashian True Reflection and Ed Hardy for Women.

Marypierre Julien is the nose to work on such perfumes as A Rather Novel Collection Hamarikyu Gardens by Marypierre, Brooks Brothers Black Fleece Red Cologne, Brooks Brothers Black Fleece White Cologne, Christian Audigier For Women, Ed Hardy Skulls and Roses For Her, Ed Hardy Skulls and Roses For Him, Villain For Him, Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue Nights, Gap Close, Happ and Stahns Rosa Alba 1842, Ivanka Trump For Women, Kate Walsh Boyfriend, Rihanna Rogue and Rebelle, Mariah Carey Vision of Love, Kate Walsh Billionaire Boyfriend, Six Scents Parfums Series 4. – 5-Second Skin-VPL & Marypierre Julien, and Banana Republic Wildbloom Rouge.

There is a tartness to this flanker of Rihannas I really enjoy. It’s both sweet and tart at the same time. The longevity is amazing. A few sprays are worth eight hours which is amazing for perfume, let alone those made today. Reb’ l Fleur by Rihanna has passed my strict tests and shown itself to be a winner in the fragrance category.

There seems to be a tropical flair with a fruity twist, like the infamous candy Wonka SweeTarts, but it’s wrapped in a musky haze. This doesn’t give Reb’l Fleur a childish or teen-set flair at all, rather, more of a unique twist for a perfume. Eventually, the musk thickens and a bit of buttered popcorn tuberose peeks through intermittently. The coconut and vanille mix in but don’t overwhelm to make this a purely linear vanilla cookie fragrance, either. Patchouli wraps it together nicely to make this scent an easy, comfortable perfume to wear anytime. All of the notes mix together well to create a perfume that dances and dips to give its wearer slight changes for interest.

Perfect for lounging on the week-ends, doing errands, relaxing, Reb’l Fleur is a feel-good fragrance that I’d say  can be worn through the four seasons. It radiates well with a few spritzes.

Speaking of the bottle-although looking at the flanker, one might think it’s nice and pretty and if you own all three of the series, (Rebelle, Reb’l Fleur and Nude), they are all identical except for the color of the banding around the bottle. They’d make a nice presentation on one’s vanity. However, when you try and spray them, it’s virtually impossible to do so with one hand. The base is so wide and the neckline is so slim, a human hand cannot physically hold it and spray it at the same time. I have to balance these bottles on something and then use another hand to spray them. The bottle design is the only detraction from Reb’l Fleur.  It’s absolutely horrible for use.

I bought my bottle of Reb’l Fleur, along with a body lotion and body wash on clearance for $12.50. It was a steal as far as I’m concerned since I absolutely adore this fragrance for the price. It’s one I’ll be reaching for often enough. Although reaching with two hands and it’s certainly not packable as a go-to in a travel bag.

The longevity is hours on end. For me, this perfume lasts at least eight hours before it starts to fade to a skin scent. That’s an incredibly long time. I love it as a day scent for a pick-me-up vibe.

Top Notes:  Peach, Plum, Red Berries.

Middle Notes: Tuberose, Violet, Coconut, Hibiscus.

Base Notes: Musk, Patchouli, Amber, Vanille.

You can find Reb’l Fleur in local department stores and online.

Peace.

Rebelle by Rihanna….Coffee, Coffee, and More Coffee…Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Posted in amber, cacao, coffee, floral fruity gourmand, ginger, heliotrope, musk, orchid, patchouli, Perfumes, plum, Rebelle, strawberry with tags , , , , , , , on March 16, 2014 by sorceressofthedark
Rebelle.

Rebelle.

I’ve been wearing Rebelle by Rihanna for a few weeks trying to get a handle on this perfume. I had sampled it at a perfume counter and after I returned home hours later, found it to be a warm and inviting scent. It was one of those perfumes that haunted me. I had to return to the store to purchase it.

But because I had sampled it at the store, I only actually smelled the top notes and the bottom notes. I missed the middle points of this perfume and really hadn’t been able to fully appreciate what Rebelle entailed in its’ fullest capacity. This became an important point in my reviewing it, since after I purchased it, I discovered notes that were quite different from any other perfume I owned. I wasn’t so sure I did like it, after all.

Why? Because there were scents in the middle that I was unaccustomed to and didn’t own. Notes that I didn’t own and notes that I had to muddle through to see if I really did appreciate this perfume. This one, Rebelle, definitely is a buyer beware fragrance. For me, that note was coffee. Coffee shouldn’t be such a big deal, except that I’m not  a coffee drinker. I’m a tea  imbiber and have tasted coffee only once in my life and spit it out with disgust. Therein lies the problem with Rebelle for me.

Unless you’re a coffee lover, Rebelle’s opening might put you off. The coffee begins strong, dark and bubbly and within the first hour, the pot just gets stronger. It does allow other notes to enter the picture. But the coffee notes still predominate in Rebelle. For me, it appeared crisp and straight-forward. and then the metamorphosis in this perfume began.

Then Rebelle gets a little bitter, a little musky and some ginger mixes in with the coffee. This is one strange perfume. It’s not one I’d wear around anyone, really. It’s a perfume I wear only for  myself. It’s very different. It’s quite unique. It’s a perfume that must be sampled before you buy.

It’s not for bedtime. It’s for the day. It’s more of an uplifting fragrance. Springtime, summertime are good seasons for it. It’s sharp and bitter, and not soft at all.

As for the bottle, it’s ridiculous. You can’t hold it easily and spray it at the same time. The bottom is large and almost impossible to hold if you want to put your finger on the sprayer at the top which is extremely slim-necked. I have to balance it on my knee just to angle it correctly to spray it. Bad design. The mini is a splash and much easier to dab on.

I’m glad I purchased it since I now own a coffee perfume. To be honest, it was on a clearance rack for half-price with the body lotion, shower gel and EdP all in one package. For that price at $12.50, it was worth it. If I payed anymore, I might have been disappointed.

Rebelle was launched in 2012 as a fruity-floral with gourmand notes. I didn’t get any of the florals from it at all. It’s an interesting perfume that draws you in the more you wear it, I will say that. And I should say that it should definitely be on your sample list if you enjoy gourmands.

Top Notes: Plum, Strawberry, Ginger.

Middle Notes: Heliotrope, Cacao, Orchid.

Base Notes: Musk, Patchouli, Amber, Coffee.

Peace.

True Reflection…Patchouli With The Earth, Sun & Moon…Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Posted in bergamot, floral fruity, gardenia, lotus, musk, orchid, patchouli, peach, plum, True Reflection, woodsy notes with tags , , , , , on March 4, 2014 by sorceressofthedark
True Reflection.

True Reflection.

I love this perfume! Patchouli reigns supreme in True Reflections for me and stays throughout the duration of the fragrance. It’s a sweet patchouli, a juicy and warm leaf that’s quite enjoyable for patchouli lovers. Wrapped in a cloak of musk and woods, there’s a fruity presence that’s not overwhelming at all. Bergamot lays low but keeps its presence throughout the perfume.

Peach and plum are two notes that are listed in this fragrance, and trying to discern if either take precedence over each other is difficult. They are there and both seem to appear working with each other in a sweet/sour appearance. The fruits definitely give this fragrance a juicy component and keep it well-hydrated and juicy. Both work together to keep True Reflection from being either too sweet or too sour and well-balanced as a too fruity perfume.

There is a sweetness here that is very pleasing. It can come from a variety of things, the patch or the fruits, I’m not sure. But it lingers throughout, and makes True Reflection very pleasing. It’s not a cloying sweetness, but a rather a laid-back sweetness that sits in the background to keep the fragrance from going sour and keeps it grounded. It’s as if just enough sugar was added to the mix to keep it at an even level for a more mature audience, rather than add too much for the younger crowd to call it a sweet gourmand.

With initial spraying, it radiates well. Unfortunately, it doesn’t last  as a strong perfume for more than about two hours without another application. It becomes a skin scent that lasts at least a good four hours. Either way, you can re-apply for strength or keep it low-key. This is still a gorgeous patchouli that’s warm and inviting.

If you don’t absolutely love and adore patchouli, don’t even touch this perfume. Run away from it. Don’t even pick it up. But if you’re a fan, a true fan of patchouli in all its glory, then by all mean, look for it and give it a sample run. You won’t be sorry.

So where does True Reflection take me? This is a season-less perfume. I know I can wear this year-round.  It doesn’t remind me of the old patchoulis that I remember, but it does make me smile. I reach for it often. I enjoy wearing it. Purchasing it was a happy one. I didn’t waste my money.  And that counts for a lot in today’s market of perfumes.  True Reflection can take you where you want to go. It is one with the Earth, Sun and Moon.

So many people buy perfume based on who the face is supposedly hawking the bottle. In this case, Kim Kardashian is the one selling True Reflection. I could care less. I don’t watch her show, I don’t wear her clothes, I don’t follow her escapades. In other words, I’m not a follower of the Kardashians so that’s not why I bought this fragrance. I bought True Reflection because I knew patchouli was the high note in this perfume and I’m a patch lover and a boxed set including a body lotion along with a full-size bottle of the Eau de Parfum and a mini-bottle of the Eau de Parfum was half-price at a local outlet discount department store. This is a fragrance I’ve had my eye on and frankly, for $12.50 for the set, I grabbed it and ran. So glad I did. This floral-fruity was introduced in 2012.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Peach, Plum.

Middle Notes: Gardenia, Lotus, Orchid.

Base Notes: Woodsy Notes, Patchouli, Musk.

Peace.

Nicole Miller…Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Nicole Miller.

Nicole Miller.

A supporting cast comprises this perfume to make it a complete success in its long enjoyable  run. Its opening act of tuberose and aldehydes are strong and deflect from the actual outcome of this Nicole Miller. The ending act will surprise and delight you.

Polar opposites and a change in mid-air make this fragrance one that’s a delight to bask in over and over again. You’ll find yourself reaching for it on a regular basis. You can inhale the literal change in this perfume as it morphs from a tuberose heavy-hitter to a warm honeyed-amber.  It’s as if you’ve changed perfumes in mid-air suddenly with two distinctly different flairs.

The initial top notes are straight full-blown tuberose, warm and inviting, surrounded by spices. The more you wear Nicole Miller, the more notes you seem to discern and discover. This is not a perfume that plays by the rules. This tuberose is beautiful-it’s flower-show worthy and lasts for a good hour at minimum through the dry down where it quietly slips into the background surrounded by other delicious notes.

Mid-way, sweet jasmine, benzoin, woods and musk work their magic. The tuberose lets the sweet honeyed amber steal the show in full glory and dance the light fantastic for hours to come. This is where the true beauty of Nicole Miller wraps around you with more spices, vetiver, tonka bean and a faint hint of vanilla. A wonderful winter scent designed for snowy blustery days in front of the fireplace. I’ve reached for this over and over again this winter simply because it’s comforting, pleasing and so delicious. I so enjoy the way it changes and reveals so many different flavors.

This perfume lasts until you take it off and others will notice and appreciate this frag on you-in other words-sillage is strong-so be gentle in application. Also a great layering perfume so use your imagination with your other vintage fumes.

Change is wonderful. Change is unexpected. Some perfumes trip and stumble in their presentation, some remain linear, some twist and turn to reveal new sides you realize are suddenly appearing. Nicole Miller is one of those perfumes that will surprise you with its changing course. Take a trip with Nicole and experience the change in this perfume. It’s delightfully cozy.

Top Notes: Aldehydes, Plum, Coriander, Green Notes, Mandarin Orange, Peach, Bergamot.

Middle Notes: Honey, Carnation, Tuberose, Iris, Orchid, Damask Rose, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Heliotrope.

Base Notes: Sandalwood, Vetiver, Tonka Bean, Amber, Musk, Benzoin, Vanilla, Cedar.

Nicole Miller, an oriental floral,  is available on her website here: http://www.nicolemiller.com/nicole-miller-perfume or in department stores or online.

Country Chic and Sensual Amber…Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Country Chic.

Country Chic.

Bath and Body Works introduces a lot of fragrances. It can be overwhelming when you work into one of their stores. Your olfactory senses are overloaded with delightful aromas from every angle. Bath and Body Works storefronts are not only olfactory delights, they are eye-pleasing country-type store-fronts designed to welcome and induce the customer to step foot inside.

Bath and Body Works Store Front.

Bath and Body Works Store Front.

To enhance the aromas, there are huge metal wind chutes at the entrances to boost the air flow. The idea is to blend the beautiful aromas through the store at mega levels, I would guess.  If you attempt to stand there by the air flow chute while sniffing perfume at one of the shelves, be prepared to wear wind goggles and get a chill from the blast of cool air. (I’m not kidding. It’s happened to me on many occasion.)  I’ve learned my lesson. I just stay away from the two front corners of the store where the metal chutes emanating from the ceiling are located.

Bath and Body Works constantly has sales. Which is another good idea to stop by if you like their products. They stock fragrance, soap, candles, hand sanitizer, air fresheners, body lotions and creams, bubble bath, fragrance plugs, bulbs and oils, aromatherapy products, sun care, spa and skin care products. The list is endless as is the fragrance list.

If only they didn’t constantly discontinue their popular fragrances. So many people love a perfume and suddenly it’s discontinued. They constantly launch new ones, and I do mean, constantly. The thought “fragrance of the month club” does come to mind when I thing of Bath and Body Works…

This shopping chain constantly has sales. The best part about Bath and Body Works is that you never have to pay full price if you have a little patience. Their sales vary, but they always have some type of discount going on in their stores or online. And, they have a 75% off bin in the store for products that have packaging that is being changed (a product that is not discontinued, but simply having a new box or colors) or there may be products that are being discontinued in these bins. And frankly, at 75% discount, I’m in for rooting through these bins to see what I would like.

Bath and Body Works Sale.

Bath and Body Works Sale.

I had to kill an hour today waiting for a repair on my cell phone. I wandered into the mall to see what was new. I love bargains, and I figured I had nothing to lose by looking at what they had at such a great discount. One of my favorites, Sensual Amber, was on 75% off, and I managed to get a shower gel, a body cream and the eau de toilette at a savings of $40.50. I only paid $13.50 for those three items. Now that’s a sale. If you shop wisely, bide your time, you’ll always find something on sale or at a better price at this store. Which will give you more money in your wallet for other things.

Sensual Amber.

Sensual Amber.

I love amber fragrances. Although this is not my #1 in amber frags, it definitely can hold a candle to others on the market for its price point.

Sensual Amber is a smooth  boozy amber with a tea-infusion lasting at least a good four hours. It’s creamy. It’s gives you a languid, delicious feeling. It’s a wonderful night-time perfume.

Sillage is surprisingly good. This fragrance is a sexy, sensual scent that’s sweatshirt-cozy and warm. Or, spray it on your linens along with yourself and luxuriate in Sensual Amber. As your body heats up, so does this Eau de Toilette.

I get a good mixture of amber and vanilla with praline, patchouli and musk well-mixed together to create a delicious EdT. The amber stays strong throughout along with the patchouli wrapping it together in a tight musky package. This earthy oriental will stay with you when layered overnight and you’ll wake up still sniffing your wrist.

I’ve ventured into Bath and Body Works recently to sample their fragrances. It’s been many years since I’ve walked into one of their stores and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the array of fragrances. I found their fragrances hit or miss but as others have said, sampling to your heart’s content is encouraged. Layer a fragrance, wear it for a few hours and decide if it’s right for you. That’s the beauty of this store. They let you try their products. It’s a positive way to sample perfume. I like that. No hassles.

Top Notes: Plum, Forest Fruits, Bergamot.

Middle Notes: Iris, Orange Blossom, White Rose, Lotus.

Base Notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Patchouli, Musk, Vanilla, Praline.

Country Chic’s initial burst is one of citrus zest with soapiness. A clean soapiness that is invigorating. It’s not an old-fashioned soapy feel, it’s wrapped with a woodsy feel, thanks to the Virginia Cedar, which predominates in this floral fruity gourmand. I wouldn’t call it a gourmand tho, to me, it leans more towards a woody musk.

Praline and pear sit on the plate most definitely, but think of County Chic as an outdoors fragrance. One you’d enjoy wearing as a transitional one in the cool Spring months when Mother Winter begins her thaw and the temperatures begin to rise. When you start to shed your multitude of layers of clothing, and you’re wearing a sweater with a jacket, jeans and ankle boots, this is the one that’s a comfort scent on those sunny afternoons.

Quite a few notes mix together in Country Chic to create a rather pleasant perfume that’s gentle, a whisper on the wind, a flurry of the budding leaves and a walk in new spring shoes on the fresh growing grass. It’s not heavy. It’s not overwhelming. It’s perfect for the springtime. It’s a perfume to transition from the heavier perfumes of winter. Country Chic radiates lightly but enough to let others know what you’re wearing. Longevity is about 3 hours. A comfortable week-end perfume for lounging.

Top Notes: Grapefruit, Pear, Green Notes, Tagetes, Amalfi Lemon.

Middle Notes: Jasmine, African Orange Flower, Gardenia, Lily, Raspberry.

Base Notes: Musk, Patchouli, Virginia Cedar, Amber, Peach, Orchid, Praline.

Sensual Amber and Country Chic can be purchased at the Bath and Body storefront in person or online here: http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/category/index.jsp?categoryId=4090262&cm_sp=FO-_-SignatureCollection-_-SignatureCollection.
