Marilyn Miglin?

Started 1351045659.23 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1351225174.04 by dsky

Does anyone use her perfumes? What is your favorite?
I have been tempted to try the Pheromone for years and see she has a pheromone dry oil spray too. Now I'm even more tempted. Has anyone tried the oil and what are your thoughts on it.

Thanks!

Haven't tried the dry oil spray. They do have a nifty fragrance sampler which will let you try all the Pheromone varieties, and find other scents of hers that might surprise you!

I have a few, like Destiny-very clean white flower. I have some of the solid fragrances also, hmmmm now where did I put them! I save some for cooler weather. Pheromone just isnt for me

My Grandmother has worn Phermone my whole 45 years of life, it has been her signature frangrance. All through my life I can tell you many many stories of men of all ages that have literally stopped my Grandmother to ask her what she is wearing so they could buy for their wife/girlfriend to asking my Grandmother on dates cause she smells so good. It was amazing to me. Women always ask where they can get it. I am a destiny girl as it is lighter fragrance and I even had a coworker hound me until I finally bought for them in secret santa. Marilyn Miglin is the best, you cant buy any better quality for the price, I promise.

I've worn Destiny for years!

Sounds like Destiny is the favorite here. I'd love to try the sampler, but a lot of the reviews say that it smells watered down or old.

Desi, did you try the sampler? If so what did you think of it?

I got a sample set. No matter what I wear I get compliments. Strangers actually stop me. I had one lady chase me up and down a grocery aisle just to ask. It rather surprises me. I don't know what I will do when I run out since I do not know if she will always carry the sample choices.

Cupcake, I did order the sampler, and I was torn about keeping it. Really liked some of them, especially Destiny. That surprised me, since I smelled it years ago, and wasn't crazy about it.

Sometimes I decide whether to keep something based on how bad I think that I will feel if I return it. I did experience some remorse. However, I am a fragrance nut, and have come to realize that even if I absolutely couldn't love a scent more, I will still keep trying and purchasing new ones.

I don't think these are as heady as they were back in the 80s when I first tried pheromone and Destiny. However, they are strong enough for what people find intense enough in this day and age.

I would always say try the sampler - I love samplers, and that's the best way to find what you love - or don't!

Goddess is my favorite Marilyn Miglin fragrance. I have tried three other fragrances of hers, but prefer goddess by far.

Yep. I like Goddess very much too...Destiny is my number two. Pheromone is hands down, imo, a winter fragrance only because it is so heavy. The best way to try MM's fragrances is the sampler sets...only because she has so many. I also like 112 as well.

I have not tried the dry oil sprays.

As far as fragrance goes, I love, love, love Goddess! I've also used Pheromone and Magic.

Destiny is not my type of fragrance at all.

Goddess is one of the few scents that doesn't affect my asthma but it isn't always available.

I have tried her fragrances before.The worse part, for me, was when the bottle was down a third,and the 30 days were over,the sprayer would not work.After three times,that was it for me! {#emotions_dlg.bored}

Last year, I ordered the set of roll-on fragrances and all of them leaked inside the box.

Also, someone on the BB stated that the sampler set they received that the stoppers in the bottles were almost impossible to remove. Sorry, can't remember who it was who posted that. Also, I saw the sampler set on the bay, but don't remember how much it was.

My favorite is Destiny.

I have worn Pheremone for 20+ years and am still amazed at the number of compliments I receive. Most comment that is smells really clean. Great fragrance.

SFC, they were hard to pop out of the tray, but easier if you pushed them up at the sides, not the bottom where it appreas they should be removed.

At least they had stoppers for those worried about sprays, they are dab or splash-on.

Thanks, Desi. I knew I read it somewhere.

I've given up on trying to post on your thread. It messes up every time I try.

SFC, you are welcome, no problem.

What happens when you post, I hate to hear that someone wants to and can't! We miss you, please try again, I haven't had any problems, at least not lately.

Desi, thank you for being so kind. It seems that when I push the submit button, what I've written goes somewhere else. I still haven't figured out what is going on. My posts show up on the various threads, except yours.

In one of the posts that we exchanged, I had mentioned about buying the Better Homes & Garden wax melts, and you asked why wasn't a perfume made that smelled like that. OK, I have one that smells just like the wax melt/Cookie Fix, and it's by B&BW....Vanilla Bean Noel. So, there's the rest of the story. Lol.

I may try again on your thread to see what happens.

SFC, give it a shot later, I hope it posts. Wish I had tech skills and could tell you why it doesn't, but you know I am clueless in all things computer!

Oh yum, I love Vanilla Bean Noel! Only tried the dupe, but it's great, makes me want to eat it.

I love VBN as well. I tried last year to order from PSS, and it was out of stock. So, I just bought some at B&BW.

Thanks, I will try and post later.

Yay, SFC!

You should definitely try the samplers because no matter how they describe them, MM's fragrances are going to smell totally differently from what is in your mind after you listed to the presentation.

I like the Pyjama Lily for summer and the 112 for cold nights out but you can't go by the description.
I'm curious about Bombshell, not crazy about the name but I wonder how it smells.

Pheromone to me smells really potent in your face, I can't wear it.
I got a sample of it, the good thing is that I don't think many women wear it as I never smell it around so you can be unique unlike something like Pink Sugar was so common.

Her perfumes are different but you really need to sample them.

No. I don't wear old lady perfumes.
