I have tried all of the samples I got and have ordered a few more. I'm not going to overwhelm my flist with a huge info dump about the perfumes I've tried but I will do three at a time.

1. Dior- Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet - FRAGRANCE NOTES peony, rose, orange, peach, musk -- The sample was an eau de toilette, so it wasn't too heavy. When first put on it had a clean soap like smell. On dry down it still had the clean soap like smell but with under tones of flowers. If you like a clean soapy scent than this a must try for you.

2. Jimmy Choo- Blossom FRAGRANCE NOTES raspberry, citruses, rose, red berries, sweet pea, musk, sandalwood. -- First on it was very heavy with grapefruit, but that quickly dies down and you get a sweet flowery smell with under notes of grapefruit. I thought was too sweet and too flowery smelling. It is a nice scent but not in the running for my signature scent.

3. Nina Ricci - L'Extase - FRAGRANCE NOTES- rose, benzoin, pink pepper, amber, white flowers, musk, caramel, raspberry, cedar, vanilla, patchouli, peach, jasmine, pear. -- First on, I got strong caramel smell, on dry down you still got the caramel but the flower notes were stronger. A nice smell reminded me of viva la juicy, which is also a nice smell but too young for me. L’Extase was a more mature scent than Viva la juicy. The caramel gives it a young fun vibe and that’s not what I am looking for in a signature scent. If you like viva la juicy you might like this scent.([personal profile] sandy_s)

Out of the above three samples the only one I'm going to keep and try again is Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. (I also got a sample for Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming, which I will review next time.)

I am writing these post for mostly for me but if they interest anyone else, that gravy. Here are some of the other sample I've tried. (This list is continued from my last post.)

4. Christian Dior - Miss Dior- Absolutely Blooming FRAGRANCE- raspberry, black currant, pomegranate, rose, musk, peony, pink pepper.--This was a very heavy scent and totally different than Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet (which I liked). I had a hard time defining the different notes because none of them seem to stand out. The scent reminded me of old time perfumes, like Channel No.5, Shalimar and Emeraude. When people say a scent smells like an “old lady” they usually mean it’s too sweet and flowery smelling but to me an “old lady” scent is more of an old time perfume smell, like this.

5. Christian Dior - J`adore FRAGRANCE NOTES jasmine, pear, tuberose, melon, peach, magnolia, lily of the valley, rose, freesia, musk, plum, orange, orchid, vanilla, blackberry, violet, bergamot, cedar --- Frist on very heavy scent w/ heavy lilies of the valley and freesia on dry down (about 45 mins) it evens out to a much softer scent. Even though I liked the dry down, I really don’t like the smell when it first goes on and (for me) I want to like a scent first on.

6. Givenchy - Very Irrésistible L’eau en Rose FRAGRANCE NOTES- rose, musk, blackberry –-- First on very light and powdery smelling. After dry down more flowery and sweet with powdery undertones. This scent was very strong smelling despite the fact that it was an eau de toilette. A very, very pretty scent.

Out of the above three samples the only one I'm going to keep and try again is Givenchy-Very Irrésistible L’eau en Rose.
