  1. Unicorns still exist - but there are no Flying Horses

    Unicorns, like Nombre Noir, can still be found in some distant land, but the 'hidden gem in the pharmacy' is nothing but an urban myth. These days, you have more chance of hitching a ride on Pegasus than finding a forgotten classic.

    First of all, any perfume that was good, or even decent will have left some footprint in perfume lore. Only the most wretched brands such as Bienaimé have slipped through the net, and, I can tell you, their stuff is definitely not classic. If a perfume ...

    Ross and berlington are offering discounts (bought 100ml of chrome sport for $13.99 from Ross) but TJMAX and Marshall’s have pretty much the same stuff they had before the pandemic. No discounts offered..

  3. Vintage thierry mugler A*Men

    Hi guys , I’ve collected a a number of Vintage fragrances over the last 10 or so years. And I really believe in the saying, “the older the better”
    I sold all my old A*men keeping only a 2011 Havane .
    I wanted to look for an original A* Men , Can anyone guide me on what to look for ?
    Since Mugler was sold off the whole line has been butchered.
    I would Like to know if there are any tell-tale sign that will help me notice the earliest possible flasks/ bottles . Thank you ...

  5. Ways of Smelling

    Here's a story I heard one time; a perfumer was asked to make a scent for a client's swimming pool.
    He found out what sort of thing they wanted, asked a few questions about the water purification system and went ahead and mixed up something fresh. When it was done the client smelled it on a paper strip and said 'Ok, that's fine', paid for the stuff, and took it home. The next day there was a phone call. 'What have you done? It's awful. The swimming pool smells like sewage!' The perfumer ...
