    Re: Meeting a basenoter, what to wear?

    Agree. Naked skin is the only way to go.

    If it were me, I'd still bring along a pocket spray (as a security blanket).

    Re: Frag that I loved now makes me sick

    It may be hormonal. Happens to pregnant women - why can't it happen to men, too?

    That being said, try again in a few months. May have been a temporary (albeit annoying. and, well, sickening)...

    It's just so nice that at S, you don't feel pressured to spend more time (and skin!!!) on multiple fragrances from one house. That is the worst at dept stores. I get sucked in- I feel guilty cutting...
  5. Re: Ever fall BACK in love with certain frags?

    All the time. It's often brought on by catching a whiff of an old favorite (not in current rotation) on someone else...in an airport, a store......and you're right, it's emotional - brings me joy! ...

    Re: Question - where do you store you fragrances?

    I keep my regulars in the fridge. Perfumers say it keeps them freshest - don't know if it's really true, but it feels great to spritz on cool edp.

    Doesn't surprise me at all to hear that Guerlain, Bond, etc. LOL at Creed -

  12. Re: His and Hers combinations-- do you and your guy ever wear complementary scents?

    I do coordinate, but more than anything I like to share fragrance with him - I think it's sexy. My husband...not so much. He just doesn't care. It's funny. I'll be like, "honey, smell me. smell...

    I'm very interested to try this scent. I generally don't even bother with the Fresh scents, never much to sniff at, if you know what I mean.

    Re: Is Caron on the road to oblivion?

    Honesty, Basenoters are the only men who even know Caron anymore. It is a shame. And a shame the way that the quality has so steeply declined.

    SO: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    Re: Black Orchid...manly enough?

    It's so old-fashioned to think a particular fragrnace is only for men or only for women.

    If a manly man is wearing a scent, then that scent is manly.

    It's all about No Fear, dude, no fear.

    Funny. I'd say 34 or 35.

    Venturing into any of those NYC fragrance meccas like Aedes de Venustas, Bond No. 9 or Space NK, I lose all control.

    Sniffing the coffee beans helps. But then...
  21. Re: In a sample rut again, need recommendations

    I sampled Bond No. 9's new Brooklyn scent last weekend, and it is really fantastic. Bright and fresh and complex. Grapefruit and woods. Highly recommend.
