    Re: Montale update please

    Do also try Spicy Aoud - not at all the spice bomb the name suggests but a well-rounded all occasion scent which seems to have flown completely under the radar.

  5. Re: Behold, I bring you another pocket money rose. This time its gourmand and sexy with it!

    Sounds right up my alley - thanks for digging this up, Palmolive.

    Think this is only available as EdT not EdP. Does it have reasonable staying power?

    Re: Question For Chest Sprayers

    Having a loose neckline helps - if you're wearing a buttoned up shirt that's going to trap perfume sprayed on skin making it less evident to your nostrils.

    Oh gender is deeply meaningful for sure - but being a social construct, it means there are choices (and, indeed, battles to be fought). And that was my point exactly that gender and sex are two...

    Re: The Big Issue - Wearing The Other Gender ?

    Gender is a social construct. If we're talking sex, perfumes don't come with genitalia attached (and I'm not talking bottles which occasionally depict pudenda). The rest is marketing.

    Re: Ugliest bottle/Presentation

    I think the makers were deliberately going for the trash aesthetic - Jungle Jezebel is after all a Divine song and the perfume some kind of hommage.
