What was the last fragrance you tried?

TSVGA Strawberry Fields, which will have a review up in July-ish, I think is when I scheduled it, but it wasn’t love! The opening was dry, leathery, and very animalic while the latter half of wear was syrupy red fruit and amber. Too much of a contrast, lol!

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Dedcool Taunt. It’s a pretty, non offensive lactonic vanilla. My new go-to if I’m going to be in close quarters with a lot of people.

It was from Maison Margiela. I think it was called “After the Rain” or “When the Rain Ends” – something to do with rain, anyway. It was nice and if I didn’t have a whole lot of other fragrances I need to finish, I’d have bought it. I also tried one or two Jo Malone scents since my local Sephora now has a full range of fragrances. I can’t recall which ones I sampled but neither one had any staying power at all and if I’m spending well over $100 for a scent, I want it to last more than 30 minutes (if they lasted even that long!).

Byredo De Los Santos. I tried it in store then got a sample and have worn it a few times. It for me has a strange almost toothpaste like hint in the opening.

I am currently on an intensive fragrance journey. I am trying a new fragrance (nearly) everyday, thanks to all the great online decant stores and subscription services. Today I tried BDK’s Gris Charnel, which for me, I found worth all the hype. Just a few minutes ago, after it turned into a skin scent (after 10 hours!), I have sprayed some Molecule 02 over it. I’m enjoying the whole experience, I believe that I have 2 winners today.
