Information that would have been useful to me YESTERDAY

Eric and I were in Nordstrom yesterday and, like the fragrance ho that I am, I stopped to sample the essential oil perfumes from L'Occitane. I particularly liked the Lavender Eau de la Recolte Bleue and had Eric come over to smell it on my wrist. "Doesn't that smell great?" I said. "Hmmm," he replied, "I really don't like vanilla perfumes." Turns out he was smelling a little higher up on my arm, where I had applied my perfume. Which I've been wearing daily for a good 6 months. Which is Aquolina's Pink Sugar, a vanilla based perfume. So he's been hating how I smell for the past 6 months and never said anything. That's a considerate man for you - if I don't like his aftershave/cologne I protest loudly and then buy him something *I* like. So I guess I'm in the market for a new signature fragrance - something not vanilla based. Any suggestions?


  1. This is my new favorite perfume, They sell it at dillards, so you could go see if you like it. I think it smells SOOOOO good.

  2. I'm not a perfume person at all, but my hubby's favorite for me is Happy by Clinique.

  4. I LOVE more than anything in the world the Tony and Tina Vibrational Remedy Fragrance. Seriously, it smells amazing,and is supposed to enlighten your senses.

    Seriously favorite of all times.

  5. I wish I could help you but I don't wear perfume!

  6. I'm with Tib - I don't do well with "smelly good" stuff. My hubby did buy me some Oxygene (sp?) once that he liked.

  7. Unfortuntely, I bought a cologne for Kelly for Christmas that I hate. It smelled so different from what he usually wears that I bought it. ONly later did I realize I can't stand it. But how can I tell him that when I bought it myself???

    My favorites are "Alabaster" from Banana Republic (kind of rosey and woody) and "In Love Again" by Yves Saint Laurant, which is grapefruity and light.

  8. Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I have some sniffing to do.

    The best aftershave for men

    I know that you want to look your best, and if you are thinking into adding something different to your looks, and aftershave for men is a good pace to start, a good aftershave for men is a cologne that will serve many different purposes, and that is precisely why you need to take such a care when deciding what to look for. Since there are so many options out there, I recommend that you do not let yourself be guided by prices, I suggest that you instead look for those things that will give you benefits instead of debts, so what I am trying to say here is that you most look around, find those products that you think that have the best solutions to what you think your skin needs and then try them.

    Of course, this method of selection gets really carried away when what you want is to also smell good, in other words, you are going to be getting a product that will provide you incredible benefits and good stuff, you are also going to be getting the one that has your smell, so make sure that you do find that product and start using the best product that is going to help you have better skin, which will have a great and smooth feel to it, also, your skin will be protected from getting any infections and a very important thing, these aftershave for men products will also avoid that you get those nasty looking rashes that appear after having had shaved, those rashes can really ruin your look, but it is not something to worry about when you use a good aftershave for men, this is the difference that is going to make you look much more than just great, this is the final touch that will make you irresistible to any women, this aftershave for men, and of course a little smooth on your own would not be bad either.


Give it to me straight!
