    I wonder if the Fresh Essence is a well done fruity/floral. Peridot is my birthstone.

  2. boojum says:

    Do they look like blocks of finger Jell-O to anyone else?

  3. maggiecat says:

    Um, yeah. But they do sound rather nice, actually, I had a strong adverse reaction to the David Yurman scent that came out this past year, but these sound tempting enough for me to venture back near that section of Norstroms.

    • Robin says:

      Guessing these won’t be nearly as strong as the first one.

    I was the lone defender of DY EdP for the longest time, and then recently put it on and wished I hadn’t. As pretty as these bottles are (although I’m guessing that cap is the same cheap plastic one as the EdP), I’m going to pass.

  5. Kitty says:

    I already have so many fabulous scents on my must try/own list that these are going to have to be really special. Not loving the colors – but nice Jo Malone(ish) try!

  6. tabby says:

    I am soooo looking forward to these new fragrances. David Yurman is my all time fav scent to date. But I’m not loving the packaging either (yeah, Jell-O is pretty accurate), but hopefully the scents will be great.
