Fille de Berlin, from a sample.
Received sample of Cuiron. Like it but overpriced, imo. Haven't smelled the original. Not complex, a bit light and synthetic but overall, good. Wouldn't pay the asking price for it, shouldn't be over...
1889 Hdp, from a sample.
The woods are very good, Mike, agreed. Just may be too much vanilla for me, idk. I'd have to wear it more. I haven't tried that TDC scent, been wanting to some. I do like their Bois d'Iris and Jasmin...
Received sample order from Luckyscent. So, I smell of a few samples. Serge Lutens, La Fille de Berlin. Good rose scent, husband likes it too. Sniffed this at the meet up and liked it but wanted to...
Have smelled Arizona and Sonnet, didn't like either.
Mike, it must have grown on you since the review? Sometimes that can happen. No similarities huh? There's this sweetness in both scents that smell similar to me as ML dries down. Like a tobacco-y...
Yep, husband likes Mechant Loup, after the nutty opening goes away some. But both agree it doesn't last worth a beans. Nuts, some cedar, then a small puff of JV.
If you like JV, perhaps try Mechant Loup by L'artisan.
Sensuous by Estee Lauder.
Drole de Rose, and for some reason I am not liking this as much as I used to. Interesting.
(((30R and daughter)))
Giants win the WS..again:p. I am not into baseball but was rooting for Shades'...
Mona di Orio Ambre, from a sample. Hubs said, "it has a paint thinner note". Lol:).
Eau Lente. Like the spice but the lotion-y note..not sure if I dig that.
Dolce Vita Dior
If she likes Burberry Brit, she probably likes vanilla and/or nutty.
Some vanilla/vanilla nutty scents to try:
Annick Goutal Vanille Exquise
Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille...
Chanel Rue Cambon, Chanel Cristalle, Chanel Bel Respiro, Annick Goutal Eau de Camille, Annick Goutal Eau de Sud.
Velvet Orchid. This is definitely not for me. Sweet, floral muskiness. Way too sweet, don't like that muskiness to it. No thanks.
That white musk goes on forever, doesn't it? lol.
Bummer about that well, 30R.
Lucy B, Royal Egyptian Amber..whatever it's called, too long of name, lol. It's a good one, esp for a cheaper scent, just wish that opening lasted longer...wish the scent lasted longer. Nonetheless,...
Rose Essentielle or Coral. Coral also has an airy drydown. More airy than I Rose Essentielle, I think. Cinema and Noir would be better for cooler climates. For the heat, I'd go with the Coral, so,...
Why not claim one/post an answer, darkdreams?:).
Estee Lauder Cinnabar
Dior Dolce Vita or Serge Lutens Feminite de Bois
Hermes Ambre Narguile+1
Off topic-onemanarmy, Luckyscent, Surrender to Chance, Aedes, and The Perfumed Court have samples for sale. Many perfume companies sell samples or sample sets as well.
Yep, also got Chanel No. 5, jasmine+aldehydes. Or Coco, woody+clove+amber. Longevity+1, good scent. Great customer service too, btw.
Thanks for the hugs, not as bummed:).
Lol @ Fabio..he's so silly.
Erin, got to say your nose has made me smile some..indoor pool+hotel smell? lol:). That doesn't sound...
Either one, can't go wrong.
Thanks guys. Mocha, had to ask my Canadian hubby what the 2nd team was..there's the Lightning and? The Panthers I guess. I was like, how come I've never heard of the Panthers? "Cause they stink". lol.
This. lol. That ain't maple syrup to me. lol.
incense/smoke(one exception so far)
tuberose(one exception probably).
Didn't know you liked Beige, T:). Re: msg, thanks to those who have helped me unload my pre-loved(or not!) stuff here on BN. Better than Ebay and those darn fees.
Champagne de Bois, SSS..which I...
Great pics, Jon:).
:birthdays::birthdays: Happy Birthday Kiliwia! :birthdays: :birthdays: All the best to your son and his wife:).
Drole de Rose.
Welcome Sago Palm! Enjoy your samples! Some good ones in that mix:).
It is better than some celeb scents, I didn't care for it much but it's not too bad for a celeb, congrats:).
Some rosy scents:
Rose Musc Sonoma Scent Studio
Parfums de Rosine line
Red Roses Jo Malone
Un Rose Frederic Malle
Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie
Briar Rose Ineke
Rose Musc Sonoma Scent Studio
Rose Kashmirie Parfums de Rosine
Dh, then Cool Water, then Bleu.
Fierce is really strong, lol, anyone wearing this will be smelled from a mile away.
One woman men are the best.:thumbsup: Didn't hear of this article but it sounds really lame.
Memoir Woman from a sample, great scent but don't like incense...if it was lower on the incense, would...
Congrats on that bottle, K:). Sounds like a good one for sure.
Back to Black from a sample. Kind of wish there was less tobacco in it.
Lol..spiced ferret. I've only used ferret to describe Miel de Bois, I think. And Joy, rained on dirty cat. Musc...
Shalimar Eau Legere
Decant of Champagne de Bois
Decant of Eau Lente.
Received Sonnet, thank you. However, I have passed this to another BNer, as this wasn't something I liked much. But thanks so much for letting me try it.
Noir de Noir, from a sample.
Paul, I got a travel spray of the es d p and didn't keep it cause the juice turned a good amount, evaporated over half way and went kinda musky quickly..and the juice was a dark, mucky brown. It was...
Ya, she told me to step back about four to five feet or so from where I was initially, so I was talking to her from a pretty good distance. But her coworker who came up to us later, him being closer,...
It seemed watered down to me, otherwise, not bad.
Lol, I really did think she was crying..I also was like, she works with the public..is she like that often with ppl that come in wearing perfume? A few ppl have said CdB is a strong one..some have...
Jon, I've seen two different bottles for the 68, the tall, cylinder one and the one you have. The cylinder one is the edc? Is that right? Congrats by the way.
K, so never had this happen. Lol. I go into a store and inquire about something to the lady that greeted me. I inquire and then it seriously looks like she is starting to cry..and no words were...
Testing a couple from SSS, Nostalgie and Tabac Aurea, very well done.
Smell of several things..went through a few fumes for sales thread.
Ya, helionope is something I can't really do much of. Was told of another person getting shingles recently..has got them in his mouth and he can't eat really cause of it. That must really stink.
(((teardrop))) that really stinks. I've done some self injuries that really stunk. Hope yours gets better asap.
(((mike))) I haven't heard of that Guerlain before.
Layered Coco with Eau...
Good to hear, k. xoxo
Dune is a great scent, agreed.
Hi Chris! Welcome!!! Noir de Noir is good! One of the few oud scents I like. Are there any other brands/scents you are wanting to try?
Betsy, hope you are enjoying your Lancome samples as well!
(((((K)))))) many hugs to you and little k..hope she gets better soon. xoxo
Erink, that house is generally not on mine either, I do like a couple from the house though..and should sample more from them.
Ryngene..I looked on STC again, says all your scents are available...
Smell of many things, going through some samples.. I stink and not in a good way, sorry to say, lol.
Mike, hope those shingles are better((hugs)).
Erink, I like Elie Saab..though a bit sweeter...
Thanks so much you guys!
L'Heure Bleue Guerlain.
Congrats Erin, not sure if I like magnolia..has a minty note to it I seem not to like. But haven't fully sampled that Malle..but got that chalky mint note. E is probably shaking her head at me too!...
En Passant, from a wee sample. The opening is great..good lilac..then it turns a bit flat...watery..too watery..and something else in it I don't like, not sure what it is. Perhaps the cucumber. There...
Rogalal, was very nice to meet you and everyone else:).Yes, that $600 Lutens just wasn't worth the dough to any of us, lol. I was going to ask you what that jasmine one was you put on, so thanks for...
((((kswer)))) Goodness, that's really just sad to hear. I am so sorry. Stealing is just really not cool. It was nice to meet you, so sorry about your stolen treasures:(.
Smell of a few scents. Tried that Oeillet Bengale by Aedes, pretty alright.
Was looking for a perfume for my friend but decided to give her samples to see what she likes first. While looking, I sampled that L'eau en Rose scent by Givenchy. I really like it. It has that musk...
May I try the Sonnet? If not to my liking, I can pass it on. Thanks.
Hard time keeping logged in for a while lately, keeps kicking me off, then says I've used several log in attempts..then won't let me log in cause used all the attempts, very strange.
Ineke Perfumes is on 17th St. if anyone is interested--Edit, was told that they don't have a storefront there..they have Ineke at Tiger lily.
Opium is great..haven't sniffed the vintage in forever though..the modern stuff is good but wtheck, it's watered down..I wouldn't mind having some of it still..but the vintage was way stronger.
Everything one needs to know about the meet up is in the first post of the women's thread so look there for a summary.
Didn't care for this one but better than 1 Mil maybe. Not sure though. Silly bottle just like one mil though. PR seems to be going vintage Avon bottles. Is a car bottle next?
Happy belated Shades, xoxo
One of my best buddies has breast cancer, it's been a bummer some. She was the m.o.h. at my wedding a few years back. She loves her perfume and the ladies at the...
Hey guys, thanks so much for really helping to plan this. (long story but one of my closest friends has had cancer, it's been quite the bummer..so, that's one of the reasons I haven't posted..so very...
Sampling Ryan's Jour, not bad. I normally don't like blood orange but isn't overdone for my tastes in this scent. Woody, musky, earthy, smooth, the orange note or something gets a bit sweeter as it...
Congrats Kumquat on 8k!!
Spellbound by EL.
Erink, roasting pigs whole isn't really my thing either..there was a home Bible study and at the end of the year for a few years there was a big potluck after the study ended...and someone brought a...
La Myrrhe, SL..fave book The Bible. Very, very soapy, musky. Like No. 5..I don't get sweetness at all, mostly musky floral...there is a very, slightly sweet myrrh note/root beer that comes out..very...
Erink, would also like the recipe for this lime pound cake:). Husband loves key lime and it's growing on me too:).
**throws a Captain Crunch berry at twolf**:)
Erink, ppl can be so naive about spaying and neutering, saying it costs too much..blah blah, but there are many places that do it either for free or extremely discounted(like $15 bucks)/sliding...
David, perhaps get some samples, then get in on a split as far as more niche brands go.
I don't think there are any/many frags very close to Sicily, it's good you got a bottle. Though, it is soapy like No.5.
Ones I'd rec, Heure Exquise by Annick Goutal, No. 22, Floris Edwardian...
Field Notes, Ineke.
Eau de Joy edp, which I never really got to liking much.
3 bottles of Bwah? Impressive T.
Shades, powder is alright but heliotrope powder isn't! Heli-no-trope.
Clairev/Ryn, putting that MFK on my test list, would like to sniff that one, how smokey is it? I don't care for tons of incense.
Love and Tears layered with Grand Bal..there's a bit of light, animal funk in the Bal..not sure if I like that but I do get honey in the opening, like a honeyed, orange blossom. Can orange blossom...
Testing Grand Bal by Dior. A lot of jasmine, like Love and Tears but with more orange blossom.
I got banned then was asked to come back;).
Spilled about a ml of Poison on me as I was trying to get a stopper unstuck, lol.
rynegne, interested in trying your scents, may have to get some samples, eventually.
ErinK, I am not a huge...
Twolf, there was something in Briar Rose that kept me from wearing it much, Ineke musk? That same musk thing is in Field Notes too, more like dryer sheets in that one.
Hugs to everyone!
You may not love them, I too dislike A*men, Malt was better to me, though not something I'd want to have. Worth sampling both though. Both better than A*men, imo.
