  1. Shalimar

    I have worn Shalimar for 40 years plus and it has always smelled the same lemon vanilla and sexy WARM. The last bottle I bought smelled dry flat and no warmth and way TOO SWEET after I sprayed it on. It smelled diferent even before I sprayed it on. Have they changed the formula ? Thanks dmamatoo PS This the only fragrance I can wear.

    Guerlain - Shalimar

    Undulating woods layered with dense vanilla;
    a chorus of amber throbs throughout.

    Named for the gardens of Lahore,
    we are transported to ancient times of incense,
    golden veils and velvet pillows in a palace of beauty.

    Exotic flowers grace the bodies of the fair maidens;
    luxuriating in the ancient oils and spices of their
    wondrous world.

  4. Avon??? Yeah I know but I have a question about the "Black Suede Leather" scent...

    As of 2010 Avon Black Suede Leather has reared it's head. I'm just getting into frags. I was curious if it reminds anyone of any other "designer" frags? What's the sillage and longevity? I'm into scents like Haltson z-14, Azzaro pour homme, even Halston Catalyst, etc. Any similarities?

    Caron-En Avion

    One can feel the rush of the props
    and the cool air as it picks up the scent of violets.
    Clouds scudding by in the azure sky;
    weightless, yet filled with the promise of a glorious day.
    The wind sings in the struts
    as we bank gently over the fields.

    Light leather stirs up from the
    supple coat and gloves,
    while garden flowers
