Review by Molly G. Will definitely be ordering again as gifts for birthdays, etc. R Robin S. These are so delicious. Review by Robin S. E Emily S. Review by Emily S. J Jessica L. Good selection. Review by Jessica L. R Rebecca R. Loved the variety. And expensive. Also the oldies of Guerlain. Actually I find Tobacco Vanille cheap smelling.
Nauseating… Most of Tom Fords scents, though very nice, are a tad vulgar in my opinion. They lack a certain subtleness. Again, not the oldies. Nu by YSL is beautiful! So, it sounds like for you the difference between cheap and chic has to do with its style—vulgar versus tasteful. I recently bought a near empty bottle of Aqua Oriens by Van Cleef and Arpels on eBay purely for the bottle which had a small amount left and that smells cheap and screechy to me.
I bought original Oriens and Feerie again, purely for the bottles. Your description of cheap and screechy certainly sounds cheap to me, though. But somehow it smells so… American. Young, vigorous, one swell sweep… Like Gatsby would make them scents…. That said, I love M7 and Nu! There is something oppulant about the changing, swirling notes of a complex perfume. Oh, and I forgot to be brave. I know exactly what you mean!
I want more for my money, too. I agree. However, I feel that there are some in the Intense collection that offer more than the typical JM. Yes, thin and screechy smell cheap, no matter how expensive the bottle is! I know what you mean about the Amouage line, too. How much is materials and how much is craftsmanship? I did find Bracken Man smelled cheap to me — that foghorn opening. But I find Green Irish Tweed a foghorn too.
Obviously neither is cheap…. Foghorn—a wall of impenetrable smell—sounds cheap to me, no matter how much it costs. What a loaded question Angela! Which is interesting, since it seemed like people turned their noses up at the Kilian for being overpriced, that scent in particular. Or a new, moderately priced-smelling category unto itself? This is Angi, by the way.
I got locked out of my old Miss Kitty V. Hi Angi! On the other hand, a cheap-smelling fragrance that costs an arm and a leg simply makes a person mad. Some Maurice Roucel perfumes have that cloying sensation in my throat as well. Yet, I completely get it. I would also include most linear fragrances. A note to your friend who defined cheap by headache inducing — the Amouages give me an instant splitting headache! The only line to do so.
My wallet rejoiced! Smelling things side by side is always a good way to know both fragrances better, and I bet smelling jasmine absolute next to something phony is a real eye-opener. I guess there are cheap synthetics and better synthetics. Interesting points. Plus the Tokyo Milk aesthetic is so lovely and well done if you appreciate the style. I wore TM Honey and the Moon for a while, but almost killed myself and others with its choking density.
Fell in love with the bee on the bottle, oops. Will look out for Bittersweet to try! I like their branding, too. And, of course, I love the lower price. But, so far, none of the fragrances has grabbed me. The Mona di Orio vanilla is one of my favorites, too! I think I have a higher tolerance for vanilla than a lot of people do, though.
Mohur smells posh and expensive — complicated, round, wholesome, its rose is almost visible, I mean, I can see its colour in my mind as aI write. I think vanilla perfumes, on the other hand, smell cheap, though enjoyable. Joy being an example: for me the parfum lasts all day, and goes through a multitude of changes in that time.
The base, heart, and top notes are each a perfume unto themselves. Whereas, say, dimestore Jovan Musk which I always have a bottle of, btw smells like one thing, and one thing only, and I could reapply twenty times a day. And I love me some Jovan Musk, too! The perfumes that smell cheapest to me have a whiff of window cleaner about them.
The latest Diorissimo is a classic example — compared with any Diorissimo in the houndstooth or even the mainly pink box, it seems to me to be obviously all those things most people are mentioning: thin, harsh, screechy. Something only sketched out, like broken netting in the air instead of a marquee or a palace or the inside of a garden shed or anything at all of substance.
To me, it is kind of the scent equivalent of nails on a chalkboard, or a poke in the sinuses with a sharp stick. Sorry, bit silly of me. Other things in this world are offensive, not cheap-smelling perfume. A store owner called me out when I whispered to a friend how cheap I thought the Tokyo Milk line was. Anyway, your post made me feel slightly better about my side comment. But man that stuff smelled cheap.
I think an expensive perfume can use synthetic but should be balanced with luxurious absolutes. If your perfume just uses the aroma chemical Hedione it might cause a headache and it will smell cheap. But if you layer a little Hedione with Jasmine absolute…then it becomes deeper, more sensual. But to me they smell second-rate. To me, linear is not a hallmark of cheap.
I know what you mean, but some thick fragrances smell cheap to me, too! It is so tacky, trashy, and cheap. It also reminds me, of Starbucks coffee…. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. They start out smelling okay but hit a blockage in the development very quickly where they smell harsh and synthetic.
Coriandre too, to a certain extent. Graceful development definitely smells expensive, but when a fragrance hits a sour note or poops out into flat vanilla or musky amber, it feels cheap to me, too.
