Micallef Denis Durand Couture
Another grey morning here - wearing Micallef Denis Durand Couture.
The story of my life. :-) I have around 700 bottles, have nothing currently on my to-buy list, but it is not ruled out if something strikes my fancy.
I only liked Hinoki. I spritz as usual, get good performance out of it.
Brands that pop out of nowhere and release 12 scents at once that are all supposed to be masterpieces.
Well, now you know - only one spritz of that scent next time. :-) Happens to the best of us occasionally.
Cello, I am so sorry about your kitty. :-( That is so hard.
I put on some SL Boxeuses this morning but it is long gone so I think I will join Jon tonight in some Josef Statkus for the SOTE.
This is a great scent, I hope you like it!
I believe that is a shot of the red carpet entrance in Cannes, France.
I use oil on my skin after my shower and it does help to anchor the scent. Spraying on clothes helps too. You can also bring a travel spray with some of the scent with you and refresh during the day,...
I get compliments every time I wear TV, but it is something I only feel like wearing a few times a year. Often it smells too sweet or synthetic.
Not similar at all.
My numbers are way out there... with over 700 bottles, I'll be long gone before the perfume runs out.
Got a good chuckle when I read that, yet another self-aggrandizing comment by Mr. Dove. And demonstrably false.
Thanks for all the kind wishes, after a lot of sleep yesterday I feel quite a bit better today. Healing thoughts to Knit's dad!
I am wearing AdP Iris Nobile edp today.
I had one a year or two ago, can't remember where I got it but I know I didn't buy it. Sold it NIB on ebay. Maybe it was a special edition?
Sending get well wishes to your GF rynegne!
I have been feeling bad with a head cold all weekend, and my MIL passed away yesterday AM as well, so the past few days have been rough. Hoping the...
Chopard Wish for TGIF!
Welcome to colourshifted and get well wishes to Jon!
I am wearing CdG Avignon for this rainy afternoon.
Vero Profumo Onda extrait for me today - should be rainy for the rest of the week so I will get to wear more of my oriental scents which is always a pleasure.
Still waiting for Dior LV boutique to get stock in of Feve Delicieuse. Nothing else on the list right now.
I have pretty much gotten rid of the cheapies/poor choices and now only own those bottles that feel good to wear. I have some in the under $50 category but very few, as I do prefer the more...
Blessings to you kalli for helping those doggies in distress!
I wore Bois d'Arménie yesterday and Cuir Beluga today.
Usually 3-4 sprays for work, more if I am only going to be home or outside most of the day.
Memo Shams Oud is easy to wear and the oud note is not very strong. Same with Kilian Incense Oud and Amber Oud.
CdG Monocle Hinoki.
I love CM but it is so potent that I dab rather than spray it on.
Not a particular perfume but a note - I have gone off vetiver lately.
Happy Mother's Day! I am so envious of Kewart's trip to France, I haven't been since 2009 and I miss it.
Sampling Penhaligon's Ostara today.
After having nearly given up hope, my sample finally arrived, yay! I am testing it right now. It is very green and smells exactly like daffodils. I am amazed at how faithful the perfume is to the...
I love it... It is enigmatic but truly wonderful. At first I was a bit disappointed by the projection but as I have worn it more, I realized it is one of those scents that has a quiet but powerful...
AG Mon Parfum Chéri par Camille, a great patchouli scent
It is only May, but so far Fève Délicieuse is my favorite release of the year.
Could have been worse, could have been runaway bidding on ebay. ;-)
I can tolerate just about anything if well blended and in small doses, but I have a hard time with cumin, anise, immortelle and powdery smells in large doses. I also dislike intensely herbal...
You know you can get Shay & Blue from Indigo Perfumery in Ohio with free shipping? Not sure if they have the complete line but worth a look for next time.
Happy Saturday everyone! It is cold and rainy here today, I am wearing AG Mon Parfum Chéri par Camille.
I like the feel and look of the Malle bottles in hand but the sprayers are not great, especially trying to make a decant from them. Dior Privée is great design and sprayer. I like the redesign on...
AG Ambre Fetiche
Sampling UNUM Lavs, Opus 1144 and Rosa Nigra today. All very well done.
I am not concerned with it. There are bottles that sit untouched and I just enjoy looking at them or sniffing the sprayer occasionally. I have reconciled myself to this reality as I have over 700...
As Diamondflame said, many (most?) of us here on Basenotes already have more perfume than we can use up in a lifetime - I certainly do. So I don't concern myself much with the situation of...
I am sampling all three right now. Opus 1144 is too powdery/heliotropy for my taste. Lavs is a beautiful church incense, less synthetic than Avignon as someone else mentioned. If I didn't already...
Doing an incense sampling day since I received my UNUM samples last night. Lavs is most similar to Avignon - true to an extrait, there is not a lot of projection but I am getting lovely wafts from...
Congrats to you RHM on the graduate!
I am wearing Musc Ravageur layered over Costes dry oil.
Tauer, Malle and Amouage are my favorites. Older Serge Lutens as well.
I found it rather dull, preferred his Arabian Wood.
Yes I am sick of it and am avoiding new scents advertised as being oud-based. I have oud scents I enjoy and still wear but I need another oud fragrance like I need a hole in my head. Ready for the...
So I am testing out my new bottle of Palissandre d'Or tonight. It is very woody and leans masculine to my nose. I am terrible at identifying notes but I imagine this is mainly rosewood I am smelling....
SOTE: Aedes Palissandre d'Or. Very woody.
Profumum Vanitas today for me on this overcast dark day.
Lovely bluebell photo! Don't think I've ever seen one in real life. Get well wishes to PerfumedLady!
I am wearing FM Une Rose on one wrist and Papillon Perfumery Tobacco Rose on the other to...
Hear hear! I appreciate your kind words and generosity on Basenotes and was awed by your love and devotion to your mother no matter how difficult things got. You are a star!
Welcome home! To answer your question above about atomizers that have not been sprayed in a long time, yes absolutely the nozzle needs to be cleared. Spray several times in the air to get the...
5ml travel spray of the new SSS Amber Incense
My Palissandre d'Or just shipped Friday, can't wait for that to arrive! I also ordered a 5ml travel size of the new SSS Amber Incense, and participated in a split of Kilian Single Malt and Apple...
Happy birthday Mocha! Glad to hear you are celebrating properly. You smell great too! Ylang 49 is a big summer favorite of mine.
I am in Vanille 44 today.
I finally got to smell this yesterday and found it neither noir nor extreme. The opening few minutes were nice enough, but then as Luca Turin says, the cash ran out and it turned into a faint sweet...
Started off in Dans tes Bras, have now switched to Olivier Durbano Heliotrope for evening.
I got to meet several wonderful perfumistas (Fiveoaks, Besotted, AltoDiva and Susan Winters) in NYC one year and still see Fiveoaks regularly in Canada, for which I am very grateful. It would have...
There were several long, unexplained outages over the years, and then this final one, with not a single communication from Jeffrey Dame about why. As a long-time member and moderator, I feel...
Forgot about Dia - it is very lovely. Lyric does not smell like PoaL at all.
Sample set of UNUM, hoping one of them will be bottle-worthy.
I have Onda in extrait and edp and Rubj in extrait only (did not care for it in edp, possibly due to passion fruit note which smells dirty). Kiki is good too but I am not much of a lavender person.
You should really try Dans Tes Bras, it is a unique woody floral that is not at all sweet.
Cologne Indelibile is an orange blossom/neroli scent with a large dose of white musk. I have not tried it...
Beloved is a very nice floral, as is Journey and Honour. There is so little price difference between the 50 and 100 ml price for Amouage I would recommend you get the 100ml.
SOTE: Jasmin de Nuit
Tea for Two
I recently ordered from FiF and Essenza Nobile. I am on the west coast of the US. Packages generally take 2-3 weeks to get here. FiF is more generous with samples, but they don't stock Frederic...
Had my first scrubber this morning in a long time - tried a sample of SHL Khol de Bahrein, which has lots of positive reviews. Unfortunately it smelled like a Mexican taco on me (?) - go figure. ...
I just ordered samples of the 3 bottles. Will report back once I have sniffed of course.
Still no sample for me :-(. I am hoping it will arrive soon!
Amouage Interlude woman... trying not to slide under my desk in a coma. One of these days I must get some sleep.
I have Manoa, Shams, Irish Leather, Granada and Quartier Latin. I think it is a nice line and worth testing.
Congratulations on solving the puzzle! Nice story.
Amouage Fate woman
Foustie, I love Elixir and think it is very underrated.
Today I am wearing Amouage Fate Woman.
Maybe Norlimbanol? That is a very powerful woody smell.
Opening of Tubereuse Criminelle is wintergreen camphor, sadly it only lasts about 15 minutes and then segues into a tuberose floral. CdG Monocle Hinoki opens with a great turpentine camphor note and...
Gary Holstein (SA at the boutique) said she was going back to school and spending more time with her kids.
Started the day in Iris Poudre, finishing it in Divine Spirituelle.
I find scents like FMalle Portrait of a Lady, Une Rose and Carnal Flower to be modern powerhouses on me.
I took advantage of the favorable exchange rate to order all the Malles I wanted from Essenza Nobile.
Welcome back to PerfumedLady! I am wearing Wazamba today.
Splits of By Kilian Single Malt and Apple Brandy.
Have you tried Tom Ford Jasmine Rouge? I am not familiar with Creed but I like the Tom Ford and Serge Lutens A la Nuit.
My current favorite is Tobacco Oud.
I would have said Tonka Imperiale and then Chambre Noire, but I recently discovered I like the new Feve Delicieuse better than TI so that would now be my first choice.
Chanel Gardenia extrait today. Congrats to NorCal and kitsch!
That is a very cool bottle on that Atelier Flou, Hednic.
Me too. I have also occasionally gotten a light rash that goes away within a few hours. Nothing serious.
Portrait of a Lady
Dans Tes Bras
Happy belated birthday teardrop!
I am wearing Bois des Iles extrait today.
White Aoud and Chypre Vanille.
I prefer Fleurs de Cedrat.
I bought the Lyric extrait and was underwhelmed. Not significantly different/better than the edp on me.
