  1. A Sleeper Fragrance from a Dollar Tree store!

    I bought one of the best fragrances I have ever used at a Dollar Tree store. The fragrance is from a company called Breathing Space and the cologne is called Melon Honeysuckle Body Splash. READ ON; IT IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK! This fragrance does not smell at all like melon or honeysuckle in any way. I dislike most fruit fragrances, so when I smelled this one, I was surprised. This one smells actually like a poignant, dewdrop-infused, very dark and deep aldehydic rose. And it is NOT powdery, ...

  5. V&R Antidote - Sovereign Specific

    (Original post here.)

    One of the more ubiquitous sights on Basenotes is a thread to the effect of “Given what I already have, what else do you all recommend I get?” I just commented on one of them a few minutes ago, and I’m responsible for three or four of them myself. One of them had several people suggest Antidote by Viktor & Rolf, the same perfumers that make the ladies’ hit Flowerbomb.
