    Well, would you like to be my first new friend of the newly established old basenotes? I just have to figure out how to do it ...crazy the things you can forget how to do in a few months, huh?

    I find it somewhat common in it's current status. Houbigant is *NOT* what it should be--in the genre I much prefer "Ombre Rose." You should smell the MESS they package and sell as "Fougere Royale" -- common as mud.

    I tried Sous Le Vent recently, courtesy of Larimar. I liked it a lot, but it just seemed too weak / expensive. I'd have to apply like it's an EdC. Derby is like SLVs rougher brother - stronger and grungier. More my thing.

    I can barely recognize Mitsouko as a chypre, so who am I to say? I'm still in perfume grade school. The classic Guerlain chypres are so soft and "Guerlainic" that I have trouble recognizing the structure, I suppose. Now Chamade, SLV and Derby - those are pretty obvious, even to me. Have you tried Chamade?

    Oops - double post.

    Chypres have become my thing lately. I can't get enough of them! I'm probably going to end up getting a bee of Derby before long - I may try to get a split going for a 1000ml if I can find the motivation.

    Wait - VdN is a chypre? I thought it was sort of an oriental with an aldehydic opening. It seems very soft and sweet for a chypre, not that I'm an expert.

    You're wearing VdN! I just happened to check my SoTD and saw you at the top of the list. Which one? Coincidentally, I just got a bottle of the parfum - a tester. I just discovered it recently - another drop-dead gorgeous JG composition...

    I'm glad you like the Kilians. . I hoped you would. Bravo! on getting back on the dance floor. Is the arm back to 100%? You need to be careful when doing those airflares.

    Thanks for the extra samples, too - especially the FdE. That stuff is like liquid gold.

That One Green Chypre

by Fleurine on 31st December 2013 at 08:12 PM
When I first came to BN, I really didn't care for them. The Chypres. The mossiness was sort of a dealbreaker for me. Just too old lady. But as I collected vintage bottles, interspersed with occasional trips to retail establishments, I began to notice when the restricted ingredients weren't there, and I missed moss and clove and everything else. In spite of myself, I started appreciating and even liking the retro chypres. Vintage Chantilly, vintage 1000, Arpege, and

August and Everything After...

by Fleurine on 11th August 2012 at 04:57 PM

The end of the summer drenches me with longing and nostalgia every year. The saying goodbye to a summer crush when you both have to go back to different schools in September. Packing up the summer clothes, and pulling out the warm ones. The days growing shorter with school pressures and anxieties mounting. The first cold breeze in late August.
My summer scents for this time of year, are, this year:

What is it about perfume and trains?

by Fleurine on 2nd November 2011 at 04:52 PM

What is it about a woman on a train that makes a perfume so attractive?

Here's the new Angel ad...simply stunning, on a futuristic high speed train.

And Chanel No. 5, on an incredible retro sleeper train, of course.

Any thoughts?

Very nostalgic this week. Another high school memory.
