I was thinking that's hard to sell a fragrance on TV....free shipping sure helps but wondering how many won't like and will return.

I ordered it-I've never seen the show but the fragrance intrigued me. When they went thru the scents though one of the last notes they listed was patchouli, don't like it at all. Hopefully it won't be too strong because I think I will like the other notes.

Hi Silent and pegsue - I got a sample of the fragrance in the mail, and I really like it. I also HATE patchouli in fragrances, but I really can't smell it in this fragrance. I was surprised to see patchouli listed on the fragrance pyramid. I hate 95% of perfumes, yet I really liked this one. I was very surprised becuase my typical fragrances are Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, and Unconditional Love, but this one captivated me. It's waaaay on the other fragrance spectrum compared to the philosophy fragrances. It's not dark, spicy and musky, it's dark and a little fruity in a dark/sexy way. I was surpised when Deborah Lippman suggested that it could be unisex, because I find it markedly femenine. Most fragrances pinch my nose when I lift up the paper to smell the sample, but this one did not! It was warm and sweet, not biting at all. I am so on the fence about ordering it, because I don't NEED it, but I want it. LOL I cannot think of any fragrance I've smelled quite like it. It also stands out to me because I find it a sophisticated and complex fragrance.

I hope you will enjoy your perfume!! {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

Hi.

Thank you so much for the review. I'm really excited now about receiving it. I'm just looking for something different and by what you describe, this is going to do it.

If you get it, I hope you will enjoy yours too!

Since you received your sample in the mall, I wonder if the department stores or Sephora will carry it?

:)

It's going to be a couple months before it appears in stores.

I'm not a fan of patchouli either and I think it was a base note too, so it's expected to last longer right?

Anyway, I bought it because that new Lancome fragrance has patchouli and I do like the scent, so I shouldn't rule out all fragrances with patchoulil. The other reason is, I am a True Blood fan and I love the packaging.

I wanted to buy more but just decided on the fragrance because of the price and free ship now. The other products are the same price and have shipping charges so I can always purchase them later if I really like the scent.

I am the same way about patchouli. Please do let us know if you like it.

I need to get somewhere and smell that new Lancome. I like a lot of their fragrances, but was disappointed when I read it had patchouli. Can you compare it to anything? Or maybe lest some of your other favorites so I can compare if we have similar taste? TIA

I got a sample in a past order and fell in love with this fragrance. I do like patchouli but didn't really notice it. I placed my order last night and mine shipped already, too! I can't wait to get it. I hope I like it as much as I did that little sample!!

I don't need it- but I soooo want it ! {#emotions_dlg.sneaky} {#emotions_dlg.blush}

I just love the look of the bottle ! {#emotions_dlg.tt1}

Just hope there are no peppery/powdery notes! {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes} Hoping it's as good as I think it may be- but if not , it will look pretty awesome sitting on my stand ! {#emotions_dlg.laugh}

I ordered it, I couldn't resist the description of the fragrance. The bottle is also beautiful!!

I also have my eye on the set of 3 mini Deborah Lippman polishes, I may order them as well.

Hey Silent! :)

I ordered this yesterday as well. Looking forward to receiving it. Let's post again when we receive and share our feelings.

Hope things are going fine with you. I've had some sad, sad, sad times recently as my husband passed away and I feel as if I've been forsaken right in the middle of my heart.... :(

I wish the TS had been a better offer like a set instead of just the fragrance. To add on the lotion nearly doubled the price.

You can't buy love but you can adopt it. Adopt, don't shop.

Karena and Silentdance-thanks so much for the information. I am feeling really excited now about getting this perfume after your posts!

I ordered the EDP and the body cream. First time I've ever ordered fragrance from a shopping channel, but I too was intrigued by the description of the fragrance. I'm kinda bummed though cuz mine hasn't yet shipped! Here's to all of us loving the fragrance! Last edited on 8/10/2012

Hi Bow,

I am so sorry for your loss and heavy heart. My thoughts go out to you. Please take care of yourself in your time of despair. I know how you feel.

Yes, I look forward to us all sharing our opinions on this. I've been pretty lucky ordering fragrances I haven't smelled and liking them. There have only been a few, but I've liked them all.

I love the bottle and can't wait to display it on my vanity.

:)

Pegsue,

Thanks to Karena, I'm really excited about getting it. I didn't really mind taking a chance at ordering time, since I've been waiting for it since first reading about it here. It just makes the purcahse that much better knowing some people have already tried it and liked it.

:)

Me too!

I reluctantly ordered before midnight thinking that there would be a duo or something coming up, but went ahead anyway.

I could have compared it to something I already own, but tossed the card out this morning forgetting I wanted to do so.

For some reason, I keep thinking it's one of my Kat Von D fragrances, but now I can't be sure. I'm annoyed with myself because I would hate to have similar scents since I do plan on buying it.

I like deep, musky scents...EL Sensuous and Sensuous Noir, Kat Von D Fragrances. Hanai Morie Butterfly and Magical Moon, Kenzo Amour, Shiseido Zen and Mac Aquatic. Benefit Your place or mine Gina. I like some Tokyomilk fragrances too.

My warmer weather scents are Origins Ginger Essence, EL Bronze Goddess, BB Beach and Lavanila Grapefruit/Vanilla. I also like the new body Mists from TBS in Shea and Coconut. Every once in a while a flowery scent, but not too much.

:)

Bow Regard, I can't imagine your loss. My heart goes out to you. I hope that time helps to heal the pain and that your memories bring you comfort and peace.
