Actual scent notes, not personal adjectives, please

I would love if vendors and hosts alike would give you actual scent notes when it comes to fragrances, instead of personal adjectives. What does a "first kiss" smell like? "Living in a moment"? Does "effervescent" have a smell? There are a lot of notes I loathe; amber being one, musk another. I've come close to ordering Philosophy, but the descriptions stop me. I have no clue what the actual product smells like. What is the top note, the middle, the finish? Slakin would give you this, and it was a candle! 😂

Again, they make the sale personal so you will buy.Some people are actually fans of the hosts and they don't mind and will buy because the host says he or she likes the product.

I absolutely agree!!  Philosophy hardly ever gives us the TRUE notes--they just say it's a happy fragrance, makes you feel powerful, etc., etc.  Those of us who know fragrances and know what notes we like would appreciate getting the real information on the fragrances involved!!!!!

I couldn't agree with you more!!! This has bugged me, especially with Philosophy. My idea of "happy" may not be yours! It's okay to ADD these descriptives, but give me the actual notes as well!

It's like people saying food is "made with love".  What does that mean?

@Ane1Care

 

Thank you for making this point.   How many times have we seen a presentation discussing fragrance and afterwards  are left with the unanswered question ........  

 

"But what does it SMELL like?"    

 

How can QVC be so clueless?
