Everything resolved. The package was sitting in the post-office. They attempted to deliver it and then brought it back without leaving a notice that I should pick it up. My apologies to Montale (and...
According to them, the replacement bottle was sent June 6th. Today is July 18th and no sign of the bottle. May be it's just my luck. I called, they were busy with the customers and said I should call...
I also spoke to Celine. She offered to send me another bottle immidiately and didn't want the leaked bottle back, nor the pictures of it.
I looked at the damaged bottle - there is a line between...
Portrait of a Lady -- it lasts on me more then 24 hours!
I ordered a 100ml bottle directly from Montale in Paris and today I received it. The box was soaking wet with perfume and the bottle inside was empty. (the 20 ml free bottle was intact, however)....
First experience wasn't great, but not horrible. I odered two bottles of perfume and they sent me one (the other wasn't in stock apparently), without a notice. I could have ordered these two bottles...
Just got a reply back from the company. They say Everclear 95% is made of corn. Ok for Passover.
The company will be open on Monday (it's too late already), so I though someone here would know...
It matters for Passover issues :)
Does anyone know what grain Everclear 95% 190 proof made of?
It's been two years since your post :) I'm wondering if you got this perfume in the end... I'm just sampling it now and went to BN to see what other people are saying about it.
I have alittle vial...
Thanks for the reply!
I already tried doing it 50% by 50% in a separate vial and it smelled better. I'm going to try now with adding more Everclear.
I have a little bit of Bill Blass Basic Black pure parfum that I just picked up at some thirft shop. Don't know how old it is and how much it survived. But it has some oily smell. I don't remember...
There is Chanel, Hermes boutiques in Bal Harbor.
Meiman Marcus there carries L'Artisan, Van Cleef & Arpels Exclusive, Creed, MFK (just brought in), Tom Ford Private Blend.
Saks Fifth Avenue - Bond...
I had a good laugh too :)
The device seems to be inexpensive.
Where do you get these glass pipettes?
Did anyone here use glass pipettes/droppers in his early experiences? What is the best source to get them?
What equipment and from which material do you use for measuring the natural oils for your perfume?
I was doing 20 drops of oils per 4 ml of carrier oil.
And yes, I didn't have enough patience to wait a week :))
On the other hand, I tried others' natural perfumes before and had the same issue.
I just started experimenting with natural oils mixing them and I noticed that there is very little or no sillage. I knew about the problem with longevity.
For example I mixed
Concord, have you used synthetic vanillin that comes in powder? I just got some from Perfumer Apprentice for my experiments but don't know how to dilute it. Can I use it in oil based perfume? Thanks!
Hi 30 Roses. I also ordered this book and was wondering how long did it take for it to arrive?
Thank you gido! I guess I should order another kit from Perfumer Apprentice. It has all the synthetics you mentioned.
Doc Elly, thanks for the link!
I want to take the best out of naturals and synthetics. I want the perfume to be complex, deep and long lasting without smelling synthetic.
May be my question should address the people who...
I'd like to start experimenting with making my own perfume at home. I ordered a natural oils kit. But i read everywhere that naturals limit you a lot in terms of longevity, complexity, etc. What are...
There is no online order option on English site either. But I guess, you can call them and do it over the phone.
It smells so much like "Terre d'Hermes"! I like Terre, but was expecting something different, something more "chypreish".
They should consider hiring somebody from Basenotes :) Together with Parfums MDCI, their website is lousy too.
I tried to go to www.montaleparfums.com and it doesn't work.
Any ideas how to get to their website?
Anais Anais? Really? Don't remember Turbulences being so flowery. Delicate, may be...
actiasluna, how old is your vintage Turbulences? There is one vintage Turbulences for sale on Basenotes now...
I first smelled this in the late 80s in a parfum version. It was magical! Recently tried the reformulated EDT version - very bad! Nothing left from the original.
Which version have you tried? What...
