    Pulp - by Byredo
  2. strange, weird, odd or just plain different notes..

    Hello folks,

    Here's the deal - Over the past three years lurking on Basenotes - I've managed to amass quite a collection of frags, and I've got to the point where I'm looking for something really...
  3. Re: Found a note that I dislike: galbanum. What's your scent peeve?

    My pet peeve are fragrances that smell delicious until … the cheap white musk base note hits .. and refuses to go away. It reminds me of my Paco Rabanne 1Million nightmare - sprayed on a jacket and...

    Re: Need some apple recommendations, please.

    I agree - Byredo Pulp - starts off tropical fruit - ends up like a bowl of ripe red apples - but never too sickly or cloying. BUT - be warned - it is one of the most tenacious fragrances out there -...

    Blind Buying can be fun - so take a few risks. Once you've got a sense of what you like in terms of fragrance families ( citrus , fougere etc) - then the risk of getting something completely...

    Re: Off to London and Paris; where should I sniff?

    Just a quickie - LONDON

    Liberty - has all the Byredo stuff - which is fun, and the assistants aren't constantly hovering so you can spray yourself silly.

    Les Scenteurs - best for brilliant...
  7. Re: What is according to you the best men's Guerlain fragrance?

    Am ambivalent about Vetiver - maybe because I wore it all through my 20s and it's nowhere near as great as it used to be
    Am intrigued by Mitsouko - wear it on occasion
    Really Like Derby - but not...
  8. Re: Have you ever disliked a fragrance and then realised it's the one you're already wearing?

    Hedonist, you're right - patchouli isn't a note as far as I know, EN is just a dry vetiver - maybe I was channeling Bowie too much - that's why I've just dyed my hair ginger and bought a lurex...

    the only one I buy again and again and again and again ( although I love all good citrus frags)

    70's Macho (Burt Reynolds) Aramis

    90's Macho - Cool...
  11. Have you ever disliked a fragrance and then realised it's the one you're already wearing?

    Yesterday I went to the Bowie retrospective at the V&A (verdict: great if you're a diehard fan, but otherwise disjointed and over-crowded, with a disorientating compulsory audio guide) and midway...

    Re: Frederic Malle x Dries Van Notten

    Tried it 3x now - as I work near Liberty, so can spritz both to and from work. I desperately wanted to like this , as I admire and respect both Dries and Frederic Malle - but sadly no dice. As the...

    Re: What's your favorite/best citrus scent?

    It's easily Eau de Guerlain - everything else pales in comparison and that includes Acqua Di Parma, Monsieur Balmain, etc. To me it's really hugely underrated with great longevity which is unusual...

    Re: So I held a fragrance showdown......

    Fascinating.

    I did something similar recently - to a big group of students where I teach (about 150) . Admittedly, it was a somewhat random group of fragrances and a mixture of men's and women's -...

    Eau de Guerlain
    Knize Ten
    Chanel Cuir de Russie
    Musc Ravageur
    Dirty by Lush

    Quite schizophrenic now I think about it.
  19. Re: In the realm of fantasy - Can perfume possess Supernatural powers?

    Yes absolutely.

    In supernatural fiction, and in some well documented cases, ghosts (or whatever you wish to call them) can make their presence known simply by imparting a fragrance to their...

  21. Re: Ladies and Gentlemen: Do You Wear Perfume to Bed?

    Absolutely

    I normally surf Basenotes in bed - and you simply can't do that if you smell of nothing.

    Also, I agree with a previous poster, perfume is a sensual drug - so surely your bed is the...

    Rip Offs and Copyright

    I've a question. (well, a few really)

    Can you trademark a fragrance formula? especially given that there are so many similarities within genres of scent, and so many blatant copies on the market?...
