Have you ever tried Cool Water for Women? I have a bottle of that, and it's a good summertime scent as it has that salty, beachy smell to it (why did I hear Kramer when I typed that? :lol: ) that reminds me a bit of the fragrance (dating myself here) Sand & Sable.

Sand and Sable is still around; someone gave me a bottle of it a couple of Christmases ago because they thought I had been wearing it.

If you liked S&S, Bath and Body Works Butterfly Flower body spray is very, very similiar.:P

That No.19 bottle is gorgeous. :eek: May be I should get it for my MIL who adores No.19 and who is SO not the wire mother.

Cyn, would you like me to send you a sample of No.19? I can always beg for one at Nordstrom nearby. ebay that Sisley thing--will earn you $ for that purty purty limited edition bottle.

All this perfume talk is inspiring me to try something different. I usually wear Elizabeth Arden Green Tea but I'm getting bored. I hate going to perfume counters because the combination of all the scents really gets to me and it's completely overwhelming. Any of you perfume gurus have any suggestions of where to start? I don't want anything too heavy or strong.

Do you want to find something like EA Green Tea or do you want to venture out more? If you want to try something else, what would you look for?

Da Book recommends Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Au The Vert as a superior lemony floral: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=bvlgari+eau+parfumee+au+the+vert&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=3644659441344566513&ei=PApDTYzcIoaWsgPFmfW9Cg&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=image&resnum=2&ved=0CEMQ8gIwAQ#

if you want to try something different but similar.

Has anyone tried the Vitalumiere Aqua by Chanel? I have fairly good skin and I just need light coverage. But does it photograph well? I only wear makeup when I need to take pictures. I notice the sunscreen is Titanium Dioxide, great sunscreen, but it looks really white in photos.

What I like about what I wear is how light and fresh it is. I don't want to venture too far but I am ready for something different.

Then try the Bvlgari version. Different but the same. :) Perhaps you can try it in a store or get a sample.

Da Book says (at this point I identify with Bette Middler's character in Hocus Pocus)



4/5 stars, recommended, floral tea

The fragrance that put Jean-Claude Ellena on the map and deservedly so....snip...truly original, novel perfumery form, at once vivid and pale, a sort of cK One for grownups. It was designed for people who hate fragrance...snip...

I took out parts where he talks about other scents and mentions that he'd smelled it on a lot of people in England and is a bit tired of it. But I don't think in the US or Canada one has to worry about overexposure.

Also, Jean-Claude Ellena is an absolute genius IMO. His work for Hermes is like olfactory poetry or as he puts it himself, like haikus. :swoon:

Check out the reviews on Make Up Alley for more info. I tried to link it but it's not working.

I am getting very annoyed with my asian eyelashes that steadfastly refuse to stay curled.

There is an Rx preparation to grow eyelashes called Latisse. It can be quite pricey but it does make your lashes long and thick. Not sure if it helps them curl though.

Have you tried a heated eyelash curler?

I've seen commercials for Latisse. I was intrigued by it but I am still unsure if I really want it or not.
I got a heated eyelash curler for christmas. darn thing doesn't heat up at all, not even the slightest.

use your hair dryer on a normal eye lash curler for a few seconds

I'm reading mixed reviews over Clinique's pore minimizer. Anyone has ever used it successfully?

Claire Danes uses Latisse, supposedly, and her eyelashes are stunning.

Gilt had a Stila sale today. I picked up the Stila Girl Palettes in Tokyo & Fuji...am :wuzrobbed that I didn't get there in time to pick up the Lip Glaze set.
