  1. late summer '10 short cuts


    Delrae Coup de Foudre - It's really nice (though ending is lackluster) but for the money they're asking I'd rather buy a Rosine.
    Chanel Bois des Iles - Dry sandalwood, doesn't last on me. Not bad but not ~revelatory~ or anything.
    TDC Bois d'Iris - Holy christ baby powder.
    Guerlain Vetiver pour Elle - Starts off lovely with florals smoothing out that bitter vetiver edge, but then the bitterness takes over anyway, so really there's no need to own ...

    Base: cedarwood, sandalwood and benzoin.
  3. Green Irish Tweed VS Cool Water - My Opinion

    If there is one topic that keeps coming back on the forum, it's the Green Irish Tweed VS Cool Water "fight".

    I own a bottle of Cool Water and decided to buy a sample of GIT.

    Do they smell the same? Oh yes indeed.
    But there are clear differences to me.

    Green Irish Tweed seems to be richer.
    The ingredients are certainly from a higher quality.
    This smells "rounder", better blended.

    In terms of longevity ...

    Mexican vanilla bean is the key.
  5. B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful - where has it gone?

    I understand that it was an offshoot from Lush (which I've avoided like the plague as long as it's been on the High Street because the smell pouring from the shops was so pungent). I saw the BNTBTBB shops but sauntered past them several times, not realising that they did fragrances - now that I've found out (and would like to try them) I find that they've closed down their operation in the UK.

    Have the perfumes gone for good too?
