hi, i was wondering if you smelt the new allure called edition blanche, i like it better than the other 3. If u ever come across it i was hoping to read your master thought on it. To me its a beautiful and natural smelling lemon creamy lemon that is, with alot of the original allure. And on my dry skin it lasts more than most winter frags, have a great New Years!!! Martin
Dear Foetidus, i am a new member of Basenotes but been using fragrances for over 30 years. I thought it was all about just enjoying the scents. Then i came across your reviews and was humbled. Credit to whom its due, you are a master and a reference. Thanks for my continuing education.
Thanks for the BPAL reviews...I've been looking at their website and am completely OVERWHELMED with the number of scents, though I have to say their site is a fun read. Your great reviews (always informative) have been very helpful. Thanks again. Lizzie.
Thank you so much Foetidus and so sorry for getting back at you so late but ive been so busy lately. I smelt different roses I found ginger in my supermarket but to find oakmoss nutmag and coriander Im going to have to find a farmers market somewhere. I always go to natural health stores to smell essential oils, my favorite smells are patchouli, sandalwood, lavender,anise, but i like all of them. I smelt gentleman by givenchy and i mostly smell patchouli and cinnamon. I just bought opium ph edt and i love it. not sure i can smell what the notes are. Thank you for everything and keep reviewing.
Thank you for your many reviews. I have read in some of them that you allude to your personal lists of fragrances you like. i.e. top sandalwoods etc ... Could you make available your "top ten" lists? I value your opinion. Thanks.
Soooo, how many fragrances do you think you own at the moment? Just curious.
i agree with martin.
i do trust ur reviews...that is way i am writing u this ofcourse.
i always , alwys look if u wrote somthing about a perfume i am looking for or intersted in.
and some times i get really suprised if i cant see ur revieuw about some perfumes i am interested in.
funny how u became a standard to me here.
mr.foetidus i love your reviews. I'm new to the perfume world, but have a passion for smells. I was just wondering if there is way to learn to detect notes in fragrances. Any tip would be great, thanks and im looking forward to reading more of your reviews.
Dear Mr. Foetidus I Like Very Much All Your Reviews... Thank You For Sharing Your Opinion With Us...i Would Like To Start A Communication With You...i Hope That Would Be Possible... Amities Lepuff...
I want to ask you sth as you seem to have reviewed almost every fragrance that I use ore once used to ... I was looking for a Donna Karan fragrance called Kaos, which I loved to wear in the years 1996- 1998. Then all of a sudden I couldn't get it any more, it was said to have been discontinued. The other day I tried Black Cashmere, also Donna Karan - and I could swear this is a relaunch of Kaos under a different name. Do you know sth about it? Did you ever hear of relaunches under different names?
Thanx a lot for sharing some insight!
