    Ha. Same notes as most press releases, I'd imagine.

    Mrs Hamr and I spent an afternoon last spring packing fleeces on a friend's sheep farm. Lanolin certainly is animalic stuff. Mrs wasn't so convinced by the aphrodisiac qualities, but our hands did...

    Thanks - I think it was a bit too specific!
  6. Fragrance closest to L'Occitane's vetiver wood soap

    Tried posting this in the general forum, but it sunk without trace. Hoping it might do better here.

    Does anyone know of a perfume equivalent of L'Occitane's Vetiver Wood soap?


    Hint - it's...

    Re: Fat Electrician Vs Villoresi Vetiver

    I don't see them as similar but love both. Am wearing Villoresi today. I have a 50ml bottle that I guard jealously now it's out of production. But I really don't see why people see it as hardcore. A...
  8. Fragrance closest to L'Occitane's vetiver wood soap

    Does anyone know of a perfume equivalent of L'Occitane's Vetiver Wood soap?

    Hint - it's not their Vetyver EDT, which is much fresher. The soap is a very deep and warm vetiver with cedar,...

    If it's a community you're after, it's difficult to maintain that with a single interest. You have to understand what makes other people tick to understand where they're coming from with fragrance...

    Re: Dark rooty vetiver

    ^^That's a really good suggestion, thinking laterally - Dark Aoud is definitely dark and definitely has vetiver, though the oud provides most of the darkness and the vetiver's function is more to do...

    Poll: Re: Your favorite neroli/orange blossom?

    I love neroli! My personal vote for everyday masculine wear goes to Czech and Speake (though I messed up in the poll). I have a real soft spot for Lutens's Fleurs d'Oranger much more blowsy and...

    Re: Fragrance-free?

    Well, you'll be pleased to know I'm off the wagon again. But and I do HATE it when I'm wearing one scent and can smell one or any number of others on my woollens! Still haven't found a solution to...

    Relative newbie here but sometime lurker, and this might seem like a strange place to ask this question, but I'm interested.

    Re: Eau d'Ombrie vs Azzaro vetiver

    I assume it's meant to be black pepper, but as I say, I get spice market sack of dusty red chillies. Same with E d'O, but with perhaps a bit more wood. A strikingly similar accord between the two,...

    I'm going to piggy back on this thread and beg the pardon of the OP.

    Re: What female scents are even deadlier on the male?

    Not sure if it counts as wholly feminine, but I would happily wear SL's Fleurs d'Oranger anywhere you'd let me. It's very very floral - orange flower, jasmine, tuberose but with a dirty base. In...
