I love having this forum. I love being able to look up a particular scent and get opinions and details, to be drawn towards something I would have never known about.
I find i am most drawn towards the fragrances that I recoil from almost immediately. The same nuances that blow my mind are the ones that make me wait for the drydown to see how these fragrances meld with my chemistry.
I tried Cabochard and Carolina Herrera today. I went into the store to buy Cabochard
I've inherited some perfumes which I cannot identify, and am wondering wether there is a website with pictures? They are mainly miniature bottles. I've tried googling the descriptions and have been to several perfume retailers, but I'm still drawing a blank with some of them.
Wow!! This is like.. the epitome of what I love. Unfortunately the one I smelled is the one from 2002 and is discontinued.. I guess they came out with another one this year and it's only 59$ for 3.4oz! AND I get free shipping AND I get a "deluxe Men's sample set" .. now I just need to know if I like it If not, Gucci Pour Homme II, here I come! Johnny keeps talking about By Man and how good it is.. I'm eager to see how it smells.. that is..if he gets it. It'd suck if I loved it cause

Before I actually tackle the matter at hand, Iíd like to thank Nukapai at Basenotes for putting the question to me, on Twitter (where else?). When I commented that most of my wardrobe was for cool to cold weather and I needed more summer variety, she wanted to know what I thought made a good summery scent. I think the answer deserves a bit more than the 140 characters than I wouldíve been limited to there.
I believe different people have different criteria they subconsciously rate
I love being able to smell the same fragrances our parents and grandparents smelled. When I open a bottle of Joy, I think, ďMy mother wore this. It was launched in 1930, when she was a teenager living on a farm in Mississippi. Her family probably couldnít have bought Joy unless they went to Vicksburg. Most likely my father sent it back from France when he was there in WWII. My mother wore this on special occasions as a young wife, as a new mother and as an established member of her community.
