    Re: HELP - I'm going to order an Annick Goutal

    I love AGs but will only buy the EDPs, as the EDTs disappear quickly on me. My two faves are Grand Amour (complex floral with a striking hyacinth) and Heure Exquise (and, oh, Gardenia Passion..)....

    Some time ago I met my mother in law at a fancy event in Philadelphia -- she had taken the train down from New York. She was flustered and a bit bedraggled...and as we were walking into the hotel she...

  4. Re: old caron bottle: help with seal and more

    Tinker424, thanks for the clarification about what lotion means for Caron; this makes sense now that I've smelled it. I managed to get the seal off with a tiny pair of needlenose pliers without...

    Bandit on the left and Eau du Soir on the right for a chypre comparison. I think I'll be able to replace my expensive interest in Eau du Soir with a more affordable relationship with Bandit...

    So far this month I've bought samples of Kingdom (love it...such a dirty flower), 50 mL of Bandit EDP (blind buy, but so inexpensive and a lovely rough chypre), and 25 mL of Caron tuberose extrait...

    Re: Shopping in N.Y.C

    About Caron -- it's no longer on Madison Ave -- they moved to Lex and 58th. The entrance is on 58th rather than Lex -- 715 Lexington, 212-308-0270, The Caron web site is wrong.

    Re: Cloudy vintage Lanvin--Spoiled?

    I'm happy that the juice is still good, and I'm so glad to see this discussion of Arpege -- I bought some vintage on Ebay (not the parfum, sadly), and I really like the sharp aldehydes and then the...

    This weekend I went to Saks to try Mitsouko EDT while I was wearing a spray of my new bottle of EDP on one hand. The EDT I tried was all creamy softness, which to me signalled that they may have had...

    Re: SotD Sunday 11 February

    Annick Goutal Passion. I have to work, and the scent is so bright and intriguing that I'm hoping it will help keep me focused... Too bad it's just a little spray tester -- I'd love to have a full...

    Thanks all for your responses. I just bought some vintage fragrances and was struck that Arpege has the same accord I'm getting from the Chanels I mentioned. It turns out Arpege has the same notes...

    Oh, I'm glad you remember it. I wish I knew the other fragrance you mentioned.
