I did order from them just before Christmas. The order arrived in a timely manner and was correct. I got a set they had with bath salts, soap, shower gel and lotion in the scent of Patchouli. It did not smell like Patchouli at all to me. I was very disappointed. This is just my experience. I would not order from them again.

I too found that the Patchouli was not what I was hoping for but all the rest of my samples were [u]better[/u] than expected. Don't judge by just one scent. There are so many to choose from and most are right on.

I too order the "graces" and and a few others. Love them all.
Nice products and the sample smells are generous.

First, feel free to join us on the january 2010 PSS mister sisters thread. We're a group of gals who love PSS products. Misters are what Paulette, the owner, calls her sample sized spray vials.
Second, I highly recommend ordering the misters. You can order them with or without an additional purchase. They are a great way to sample the scents Paulette has available, so you can see what works with your chemistry.
I have the bath set that is about $25 in the vanilla canelle and I love it. The lotion is moisturizing enough for my skin. The bath gel is fragrant and gives me ample lather.
Some of my fav scents are: pink sugar, vanilla canelle, nut, white tea, and the new falling in love version.
Please join us on the january thread. You will get honest replies as to what scents are dead on, what is so-so, what is long lasting, etc.

I'm cool toned. Yellow foundations make me look jaundiced. That is NOT the look I am going for.

I love all of the products I have gotten. I would highly recommend trying the sample misters before making a full-sized purchase just to be sure you like her version of the fragrance.
The fragrances are not always identical to the "real" ones, but in some cases her dupes are better. For example, I LOVE her Pure Grace version, but the real Philosophy one is just okay. I also got a sample of her Flowerbomb dupe recently and I really like it (although it's very strong). I ordered a "real" Flowerbomb sample size from eBay and I recieved it today -- it isn't so great. It seems like her fragrances have plenty of depth and last very well.
In terms of actual products, I love the Shea lotion and room sprays, which I use in place of perfumes because I like a more subtle effect. I have also used her bar soaps, which are nice but not extra special. The shampoo and conditioner are nice and mild, but I would not recommend the conditioner if you have dry hair -- it's very light.
Customer service is excellent in my opinion, and shipping is fast. I just ordered more stuff this week!

The owner is so nice and she ships really quickly. Her duplicate of pink sugar smells just like the real thing.

Paulette is a very nice lady and customer service is great - but the Bobbi Brown Beach dupe was not even close. I never repurchased.

I love PSS!! Most definitely start with a collection of sample misters! For my first order, I just got a dozen misters -- it was hard to narrow it down to 12! Then for my next order, I got a few different items (roll-on perfume, solid perfume, dusting powder) in different scents, plus another dozen samples. Each mister gives numerous uses, so they are a great way to go to get started. I highly recommend PSS!

I've only ordered the misters because I'm trying to use up my stash of lotions and shower gels before getting any more. I love PSS. Her Angel and Pink Sugar are dead-on. I didn't care for Hypnotic Poison or the Egyptian Musk like I thought I would. But for the price and the quality, it can't be beat.

If you love patchouli, IMHO the Woodstock 1969 products from [url http://www.prettybabynaturals.com/soapdish/]www.prettybabynaturals.com/soapdish[/url] are the best. They've got soap, lotion, and powder. I've been using it for over 20 years.

I ordered a BB 'Beach' bath set from her about 6 mos. ago and I love it. Very pleased!

Paulette has been wonderful to do business with. Ships promptly, orders are packaged well, she communicates well.
I've ordered a number of the misters, most of which I haven't worn though. Just wanted to try them - but I ADORE her version of Amazing Grace (Divine Grace). It does not smell like AG (to me) but I think it smells better than AG (and I love AG!)
I get so many compliments when I wear it (which is always!)
I plan to order her misters of the other Philosophy scents on my next order.

I didn't care for any of the 12 fragrances I ordered. They all seemed to have some base I couldn't deal with. I was so disappointed after reading such praise for this company. Their customer service is tops, so if you don't mind a little experimenting at a small price, you just might like them.

I started ordering from Paulette last summer -- First I ordered the Misters and was very pleased with them. I then ordered the following:
True Bliss (PG) Shower Gel, Lotion Bar and Roll on
Divine Bliss (AG) Lotion - like it better than AG
Soulful Bliss (IG) Lotion - scent is right on and one of my favorites.
Will not hesitate to order more!
