Fleurs d'Oranger I noticed had changed 1-2 years ago.
It used to be the best FdO on the planet - perfect OB with both darkness and light.
The current has much less darkness, it's almost all...
This stuff is SO GOOD. And I'm not even into citrus normally.
The closest comparison for me is Serge Lutens Fleurs d'Citronnier. The Heeley is more straight forward citrus and less floral but...
Has anyone purchased a new bottle of MPG Santal Noble, say, within the past 6 months and found it to be terribly ruined?
I have a vague memory of Santal Noble being divine, but the bottle I just...
Oh, I am so happy and JEALOUS!
I've been looking for Vintage Vent Vert for a few months now.
Do you think whomever you obtained it from has another? (wishful thinking...)
I agree with all of you who said Diorissimo is HORRID, because it is. I did a side by side comparison with vintage and it's just awful.
DIORAMA, on the other hand, is beautiful! However, I have...
I recently purchased a brand new bottle of Prada No. 6 Tubereuse from a fellow Basenoter and I'm in love with it.
Now I'm curious about the other Prada exclusives - especially Iris, Oeillet and...
Actually, I have found a few of the Bond's to be original.
Success is a Job in NY
Silver Factory is a nice incense (perhaps not original but good)
Teo Cabanel Alahine.

This sounds like a job for Annick Goutal. AG really needs to make a Peony Soliflore! If anyone can do it, AG can ;-)
The closest I've come to real peony is Histoires de Parfums Verte Pivoine.
But who will join our club? Will it be a club of 2?! :eek:
But who will join our club?! ;-)
Forgot one! This is a great amber - and so easy to wear - seasonless
becker eshaya golden amber
went with dior hypnotic poison today. haven't worn it in ages.
I think something may have happened to her personally. This is just a guess. I know she moved from CA back to the east coast or south (I'm forgetting).
I found Ava Luxe to be hit or miss, but...
has no one mentioned Keiko Mecheri Osmanthus? It's beautiful and actually lasts.
Agree that Amaranthine is now the best - or at least it's a tie between it and Violetta.
I did like the now discontinued Carnation - was it Malmaison?
Adding to the chorus:
MPG Ambre Preceiux (sounds exactly like what you're describing)
Dior Ambre Nuit
Balmain Ambre Gris (cheap and nice soft amber)
Dior Hypnotic Poison (maybe??)
Different from the other comments you received, I do understand where you're coming from and I think it's more than simple perception.
Sometimes I think the issue is: "did you WEAR...
I'll toss a few out there ~~ you probably have these already ;-)
Barbara Bui Le Parfum
LT Piver Heliotrope Blanc
Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche (labdanum, incense, styrax, woods)
I'm crazy for mimosa but I don't smell anything almondy about the actual blossom. I think mimosa just combines well with heliotrope and vanilla or something.
Have you tried any of the...
I love Barbara Bui, too. It's often mentioned over on MUA, that's where I first heard of it.
I never wear skin scents but BB is one of the best.
I've stocked up as well. BB was on...
L'Heure Bleue = Flintstones vitamins
Voleur de Roses = industrial cleaning fluids
Shalimar = vomit
Actually, 99.9% of the time when a non-fragrance-obsessed person sniffs me they'll suggest...
how is eau lente? I like most diptyques but haven't tried lente.
I love La Mome! Nobody ever mentions it.
