Its summaries are creative and sensible.
Buying blindly, I did not disappoint myself with its indications.
However, I have two quesões. It can help me?
1) Paestum Rose our Aoud Damascus?
2) It can indicate the name of a sampler's sallerman?
Here, the climate is cool and tropical.
Mr. Foetidus, I was wondering what your thoughts are on Tribute by Avon?
Any new thoughts since you reviewed the scent a few years ago?
I was looking at Avon "vintage" scents and came across the very same decanter you talk about in your review; Roman Senator/warrior.
Anything else you wish to add to your thoughts on this cologne?
Thanks for any input.
Hi. Thanks for the reply. I'm going to get a decant of both of those from the perfumed court.
Hi Foetidus. I go on basenotes all the time to read fragrance reviews. I notice that you seem to like a lot of the fragrances I like. I was just wondering if you don't mind me asking, what are some of your personal favorites? Lately I've been really interested in lavender scents. Caron Pour un Homme bores me a little and the Jicky edt I've purchased is great but possibly a little too edibly sweet and desexualized. Do you have any suggestions on fragrances you know to be great? I'd spend good money on a bottle if it really did the trick for me. I've already purchased about a hundred samples in the last couple years from ThePerfumedCourt.com. I'm just looking to narrow my search a little. Thanks for reading.
The last part of your Declaration Essence review mentioned the difference between the two scents, but did not explain the difference. (See below). I was wondering if you might briefly explain the difference. Thanks
Foetidus: "There are not very many differences between Déclaration and Déclaration Essence, but those marginal differences make up a huge difference in my judgment—Déclaration is not very interesting except that is flirts a bit with repulsiveness, while Déclaration Essence is a winner."
I see ;-)
Thank you so much for your very thoughtful response to my question about the Havana relaunch. I've acquired a decant of the "original" from a trusted source and I can't wait to compare it to the relaunch. Your insightful response will be quite valuable. It is wonderful to be part of the Basenotes family and I hope to keep in touch with you and others from time to time.
All the best,
P.S. My experience withe Rememberance was (and is) beguiling, bewildering and occassionally stubborn, but in the end she is quite beautiful. I think we all know some fragrances that fit that mold.
Great reviews! Keep them coming!
Clever name! Irony never hurts in our little quest for perfection. Like many others, I greatly admire your reviews. After reading your review and others on Havana, I'm wondering if you've compared the relaunch to the original? If so, any thoughts? I've heard conflicting reports from others, but mostly positive. Unfortunately, relaunch registers as reformulation in my mind. I just haven't had much sniffing pleasure with reforms. Almost always a let down. If anyone's nose knows, its yours. Thanks for your time and consideration.
I totally love your reviews.
