  1. Creed's Baie de geničvre

    Well, this is my first review and my English is not so good, sorry.

    Baie de Geničvre is the perfume I wear for one year. Useless to say i find it great. I'll just try to explain why I find it great.

    At first smell this is not an easy scent. The juniper berry is strong and nearly medicinal. It is without compromission. Straight to the goal. This is not a perfule to please or charm the others first. This is spicy, dry, astringent and full of masculine temper.

  2. Fragrance shopping in Beijing

    It seems to me that Beijing has yet to truly begin developing an interest in perfumes. It goes without saying, there are some people wearing fragrances but, compared to the huge majority around, it is in infinitesimally small –but growing- proportions. On a positive note, perhaps it is better this way as, conceivably, it could develop into a headache inducing city? I don’t know. One thing is sure: shopping for perfume can be quite a trying experience. The same goes for wine, if you ask me but… ...

  3. DOLCE & GABBANA

    I playfully grabbed a small 4.5ml tester the other day. After a shower, I applied some of it on myself and kept wondering why I couldn’t really smell anything.
    Frustrating...
    Essentially, my plans were to surprise my wife. I had meant to subtly inject a new fragrance in the air as I would have sat inconspicuously next to her… I nevertheless did so and waited a bit, just to see what results would come out of it…

    Nothing!

    Hearing me mumble to myself that ...

  4. Recalling My Humble Beginnings Again

    by , 22nd January 2010 at 06:20 PM (Cologne Chronicles)
    Okay, I'm going to resume my "Testing 1, 2, 3" posts sometime later this week. It's been almost 2 years, so my nose has been fine tuned a bit, well, just more experienced. I just can't quite identify everything I'm smelling besides the fact that it smells like [insert fragrance here] or if it smells good or not. Anyway...

    I was reading this thread and I was inspired to write yet another "this is where I started" post here. Except I decided to recall more details ...

  5. Guerlain at full retail, hoping for an experience

    I decided to buy Habit Rouge. I decided to go to the Guerlain boutique at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. It seems to function as the main Guerlain shop here. Jicky and some others are only available at this shop. So I thought if I went there, I could try Jicky and also had some hopes for some kind of freebie. Looking around in the hotel, I couldn't see anything Guerlain, so I went to the newer tower next door. There, a receptionist told me Guerlain was on the fourth floor. This turned out to ...
