An oriental dream: sweet, earthy, woody vanilla
6 December 2011
Summary: I have a feeling that when people ask over and over again for recommendations for a sweet, earthy, woody, vanillic oriental, PCAYY is exactly what many of them have in mind. They've just never encountered it because there is no tester on the perfume counter in Macys, it's a little pricey, and samples are hard to come by. I lucked into it because one of my early swap partners has taste very similar to mine and she was an expert at predicting which ones I would love.
Summary: While I love a lot of Lauder fragrances, Amber Ylang Ylang is the most exquisite scent. It's warm, sensual and long wearing. I receive so many compliments when I wear it. While the price point is a little high, it's my go-to fragrance for special occasions or when I just want to feel a little pampered. Love it!
Summary: A beautiful fragrance for Fall and Winter! It lingers very softly, not over powering. I've had difficulty finding scents that do not cause headaches and reactions, this is simply lovely! I only wish there was a small purse size or other way of layering, such as powder or cream. I enjoy layering fragrance.
