    Re: Tauer LDDM

    I like this one. While the incense is prevalent it seems secondary to something a little more aromatic or spicy: coriander.

    Re: Inexpensive Oud Frag?

    I was given a sample (free!) of Bond No. 9 "New York Oud." I am trying to figure out what Oud smells like on its own and it seems intertwined with Rose (Montale Black Oud) which is too strong for...
  3. Re: Fragrance with middle & base notes like O de Lancome

    Hi. I think you wrote a great question, but I would not know how to answer it. I found an empty O de Lancome bottle (it is plastic, but it is designed to look like red lacquer-ware). It has the...

    Re: Best on-line store for Niche ?

    As a fellow novice, I am glad I started out with samples from luckyscent and the perfumed court. They made recommendations for me at luckyscent. I liked many of them and had never heard of any. I...

    Re: Realistic Woods: Recommendations?

    Thanks for all the recommendations! I also like the almost overwhelming cedar block smell. My current fave is Maestrale, which hits me with an overall impression of a freshly sharpened pencil. :)

    Re: Amouage Jubilation XXV or CDG Sequoia ?

    I like both, but I think there is "more" to Jubiliation XXV. I don't consider it "heavy" but I like the density and it lasts longer for me. I have to admit I have not worn Sequoia as many times,...

    Thank you for the message. I am trying to figure out how long I should keep a sample I don't like. Should I give a scent three chances? On the other hand, it's nice when you know right away that...
  9. Re: Which is the most trusted online shp for designer crags?

    I have had good experiences with both luckyscent and the perfumed court. The former sells samples and new bottles (and many other things, like candles, grooming supplies and sets). Perfumed court...

    Hi. Would you mind sharing photos of how you display your samples? I have about 50, in varying widths (from ebay, luckyscent and perfumed court). Some I have in clear acrylic business card holders...

    Re: New site to buy decants.

    Considering their domain appears to be registered in Jan 6 of 2011, it appears they are a new company. Prices seem to be a little lower, but so is their selection from Amouage (only Jubiliation 25,...

    Re: Profumi di Pantelleria

    This is currently my favorite scent. It initially reminds me of pencil shavings back when I used pencils. . . . and it has a consistent smell that lingers through the day, though not as strong as I...

    Cannabis Santal
    Brown Sugar

  18. Re: What Hermessence fragrance is the most versatile?

    I like Iris Ukiyoe which has a nice "organic" smell. Also Ambre Narguile. But both Brin de Reglisse and Paprika Basil have a sharp top note that reminds me of raw celery. I like to eat it, but...

    Re: Hermes - Ambre Naguile

    I purchased two "discovery" sets and may have an extra 15ml bottle of Ambre Narguile. If I can figure out how to swap on basenotes, I'll list it.

    Re: Paco Rabanne 1 Million

    It reminds me a bit of play-doh and vanilla, also reminds of one of the Hermessences, either Ambre Narguile or Vanille Galante. I don't smell any or specified notes.
