I wear perfume essential oils & that's pretty much it. I like Sandlewood, Patchouli (you either hate it or love it - no in between), Mango, Peach, Frankincense, Myrrh, Vanilla... and a whole bunch of others. I tend to combine them depending upon my mood, the occasion, or the time of year. They're my favourites ever!!! They last forever & ever throughout the day & some don't leave your clothing for several washes.

I LOVE pure grace! But for some reason, it doesn't last that long for me. It's one of my indulgences because I go through it so fast that I have to buy it often. I just may buy the HUGE 4oz size that they're offering on qvc. You can't get it in that size anywhere else.

I do get some of their stuff in store but most of it I get at QVC...cant be the prices or the packages they put together. I think it lasts longer than you think it does.....I know I can't smell it anymore after a few hours, yet, still have ppl comment on how 'clean' I smell.

That may be true because after a while you'll get used to certain scents- especially something that smells so fresh and natural. It could be that I just don't notice it after a while but you know, that is actually one of the scents that I get the most comments on- its not so perfumey and everyone (males/females) recognize 'clean' scents.

I have a friend who introduced me to Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab's fragrances a couple of years ago. That company is dangerously addictive!
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Perfume Oils: Welcome to the Lab
The problem, of course, is that you can't try out the fragrances before you buy, but you can buy a bunch of small vials ("imps") pretty cheaply. I found that their forums offer tons of great info on specific scents.
BPAL Madness! (Powered by Invision Power Board) (Click on the "reviews" section)

I own one of their limited edition scents - Gingerbread Poppet (it's perfect for winter). I have some favorites from the Illyria collection; Whenever I wear "Lady MacBeth", people flock to me & ask what I'm wearing. The perfume I have my eye on next is "Victoria" from the Stardust collection.

All right, I visited the site and became immediately hooked. I ordered six imps.

I've always liked Patchouli...I can't do it straight though...it has to be mixed in something, for me at least...I have a body lotion by Dr.Bronner's..which is all organic ingredients...Patchouli and Lime...


Otherwise, I will go with Victoria's Secret line of fragrances.

I simply love and it lasts forever, both the mens and womens. It's great to travel with also because the bottle comes in a steel can.

I also like Issey Miyake (le feu d'issey). I love this for the fall and winter months and it also lasts forever.
