Nanette Lepore 3-Piece Gift Set for Women, 2.5-Ounce

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful soft scent, Oct. 24 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love Nanette Lepore's fragrances ! This particular one is difficult to find . It is soft, sensual, yet perfect for day or evening. Lasts all day! The body lotion is beautiful with the lingering scent or layer under perfume . Case is great quality, perfect for jewelry storage ... Or cosmetics. Excellent price! Fast shipping! One other point, perfume is a generous size ! Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Incredible" Amy!, Jan. 15 2012
This review is from: 2007: In Concert (DVD)
This DVD showcases the incredible Amy Winehouse's powerful, vibrant and soulful voice. An uninhibited performance! The "Voice", with that R&B, jazzy contralto moves through her original material from "Back to Black". Amy also brings in a Sam Cook and Toots and the Maytals number.

Her sauve sophisticated band perfectly balance the smooth vocals of her back of singers, Derek & Zalon. Amy captivates us with sultry moves...we see her dancing with her backup singers. A rare treat!

Her explosive and emotionally charged lyrics gives us a glimpse into this fragile girl. Amy the young singer/songwriter is bursting with a talent rarely seen in today's music.
I have watched many of her performances and I found this particular one (done in France) her strongest yet. Amy appears happy, relaxed, her voice clear, pure and powerful.

A dedicated fan, twinges of sadness come through....I wonder What If??

An excellent performance indeed ...not to be missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Voice! Very much Missed!!, Jan. 14 2012
I have all Amy's CD's and two DVD's! Her amazing voice and poignant lyrics have always captivated me. Lioness: Hidden Treasures does not disappoint! Her younger voice is beautiful, rich, and vibrant. I listen to this CD at night when getting ready sleep. Such a talent...the world has not heard in many years. Listen carefully to her lyrics on Tears Dry On Their Own. I love this slowed down version almost better than the latter! This is how she meant it to be heard. It is very tragic we will not hear what might have been...but the fan in me is permanently cemented. A beautiful voice, very much missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Zombies! Never better!!, Feb. 22 2010
Beautifully produced DVD of the 40th anniversary of the album Odyssey & Oracle. Also included many of the Zombies touring bands song selections. The bands harmonies are impeccable! Colin Blunstone's versatile and ever powerful voice does not disappoint! His range, the strength and energy he gives to each of his performances leaves the listener spellbound!
The truly gifted singer/songwriter Rod Argent's magical fingers dance over his Hammond Organ keyboard. Rod Argent is truly brilliant. He also adds his "McCartney" like voice to many of the songs.
Lead guitarist Keith Airey's masterful work is mesmerizing. His solo work leaves one wanting more. Steve Rodford and original Zombie drummer Hugh Grundy's percussion work is without a doubt riveting...
Base guitarist Jim Rodford also adds his great talent to the mix. Chris White, original bass guitarist (and writer) for the Zombies joins in with the original group. The original Zombies sing all their "hits", resulting in a nostalgic trip down memory lane. "Time of the Season" has never sounded better!
The group is totally in sync and flawless! Thoroughly talented and a joy to listen and watch perform.
This DVD showcases the Zombies in a "fresh" new light! Better than ever!! A number One pic for the sixties generation and beyond. Not to be missed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Zombies revisited!, Jan. 15 2010
Great DVD...Sound quality excellent! The Zombies still have it! Excellent performances of old "hits" and not so well knowns songs. Colin Blunstone still has a fabulous voice and Rod Argent "rocks". I saw this group in Winnipeg last July, and honestly they were incredible live! The audience was filled with young and older...were on their feet!! Keith Airey's guitar work is magically and reviting! One of the best I have ever seen! The group was warm and friendly towards the audience and we "all" had a great evening together! Many of the same songs are on this DVD. Catch them if they come to your city...you will not be disappointed! AP Winnipeg Mb. Canada
