Sparitual Rock Me Like a Hurricane on tips
Hopefully, dear Mrs. Q will check in today. Happy Birthday sweetie!
Wearing Chanel Bois des Iles parfum today.
I personally think that Immortelle de Corse is outstanding, and is among my favorites from any house. Stands against most from other more expensive lines.
That is a great description, freewheeling. That is in line with my thoughts on that one, not an easy breezy fragrance, but not the most difficult of the line. The womens is bigger, but the...
Post tennis match (win!!!) scent is Slumberhouse Pear and Olive.
Burning Aquiesse Blue Agave today.
Tips in I Love Nail Polish Happily Ever After.
Spent a lovely evening yesterday in Chanel Coromandel, and can still smell the last of the drydown. I have a tennis match at noon, so will switch to Hermes Hiris for that. Have a great day everyone!
The following bottles are for sale to CONUS members only. The price includes shipping, and all bottles have cap and box, unless otherwise specified. Payment by Paypal is requested, and if not using...
kitsch, I have always wanted to sniff that one. Thanks for the writeup and reminder!
Hello, Teardrop :vrolijk_26:
Last night I finally sampled Profumum Ambra Aurea! I don't know why it has...
Ah, our wonderful Dr. G is celebrating a birthday!! How exciting! I think I will join him with a few cocktails this evening, and maybe some Chanel :2vrolijk_08:
But today, I am in Ava Luxe No....
This is what I do also. Living in New Mexico, the summers are rather hot and dry, but then, I am not outside day. I rotate through a few heavier scents to keep the variety in there, while enjoying...
Korres Natural Pink this morning, and Butter London Abbey Rose (a hybrid lipstick/balm) this afternoon.
Thank you again for all my wonderful hugs. I appreciate it very much, and needed it!
Joining the Chanel gang today (a bunch of you guys!) in 31 rue Cambon.
Any news on your sample? If you have not received yours by now, I would imagine that you won't. I'm happy to pass mine along this weekend (may sneak one more wear). PM me your addy.
I love that one zeniba!! Don't see it much anymore, so I may have to wear it this eveing :)
I'm in L'Artisan Premier Figuer Extreme, a warm weather staple for me.
Thanks for all of your kind...
Tips in Illamasqua Melange, a medium green with copper shimmer (similar to Butter London Two Fingered Salute, but the base is darker). I prefer Two Fingered Salute.
Just finished tonight a 10ml travel bottle of TDC Bois d'Iris....but i don't really think that counts :)
Chanel Exclusifs line - 28 La Pausa, 31 rue Cambon, 1932...these are the ones I wear if needing to smell professional and cool. I don't imagine she will be outside much in the heat, so really, i...
Stealing Xscents picture, and joining her in Bal de Mai, my most used lipstick. I am more than half way through my third of this one!
OK, I have worn this twice now, and pretty much to the same end.
I love the opening, I love contrasting warmth and chill of it. I was also concerned about the green, as others have mentioned,...
Hello all. I have had a rough start to the weekend. One of my elderly cats went missing Wed, he was an indoor/outdoor cat since that is how he came to me 16 years ago, as a 2 year old. He was...
So, imagine us "three sprayers" :lolk:
I have several backed up, although mostly just because I am too lazy to sell off.
Cuir de Lancome x 2
Chanel 31 rue Cambon (200ml bottle, using a 75ml...
Congrats! This one doesn't get talked about much, but I always found it very enjoyable when I sampled it several years ago.
Good morning all! Hump day today, after a rainy night also Robin, so Chanel 31 rue Cambon for me today. There is no logic to that, but I thought I'd just run with it :)
My vote also goes for Italian Cypress, NCFR.
I am in L'Occitan Immortelle de Corse again today - I have kind of gotten on a roll with this one over the last several months.
cestrum nocturnum, if for some reason your sample doesn't show up soon, I will be glad to share mine. I've not given it a try yet, will start tonight and over the next few days, but then I can pass...
Tips now in Butter London Trifle!
- - - Updated - - -
And now tips in SpaRitual Inner Beauty, a rose gold metalic I picked up at TJMax this winter.
Robin, aren't babies just wonderful!!! Especiallly when you can give them back to mom when they start crying :lolk:
In L'Occitan Immortelle de Corse today.
Guys, I received my sample in the mail Friday I think (I was out of town til Sat, and it was waiting for me)!!!!! I will give it some wears here over the next day or two and report in. Thanks 30...
Great shots of a lovely collection, teardrop!!!
Joining Paul H in Chanel No. 18 on a lovely (finally dry) spring day.
Tips now in Cirque Luminous Owl, a darkish coral holo.
Toes are in Essie All Tied Up.
Oh! So that is what an empty bottle looks like! :lolk:
Enjoying a dose of Delrae Bois des Paradise this AM!!!
Count me in on the appreciation for 30 Roses!!!!!
Happy Birthday, Mocha!!
Xscent, love the Chanel porn :) And speaking of...I am in Chanel 31 rue Cambon today, so joining you, NCal Fragrance Reviewer and Kiliwia in the house!
Hednic, would you mind posting your thoughts on this one when you have a chance to give it a wear?
I really like many from this house, but for some reason, they have never wowed me into buying a bottle.
Of the ones that I have tried (about 20?), I like:
Malabah - a soft, spiced tea fragrance ...
4x - Fendi Theorema Esprit d'Ete
3x - L'Occitane Immortelle de Corse
2x - Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere, Comme des Garcons White, Chanel Coromandel, Hermes Hiris and Hermes Un Jardin Sur le Nil
I finished a 15ml bottle of Ava Luxe No. 23 last year (she only sells them that way now), and I bought 2 backups of it, now half way through one of them.
But that is it.......for a long time I...
I love a big oriental - up until about 80 degrees, then I find it a bit cloying. So, yes, I think adjusting application can bring out wonderful nuances for otherwise "seasonal" fragrances.
I'm joining you today, in many ways!!! I strongly dislike tuberose, so not going to be in synch - although I guess I should use synch day to get outside my comfort zone :)
I'm in MadHat Scents...
Read post #25 for his review of his purchase.
Mani done with OPI I Don't Give a Rotterdam.
Went with Hermes Hiris for my first day back at work in a week or so.
I'll join the appreciation of Elixir, especially the eucalyptus note. I think this is one of the best Pens that I have smelled....
Very interesting, 30 Roses! I can't wait for my sample to arrive, hoping it comes today. This one sounds rather BIG for a Pens.
Good morning, all! Hoping for no rain today, so that I can finally finish some yard chores that I had hoped to complete during my staycation. So far it is looking good. I am wearing Chanel...
XScent, I can also deal with this Monday, as I am off work too!!!! Chanel Coromandel for me today. If the weather holds out, and it is iffy, I have a tennis match this evening, so I should still...
I went crazy in April and bought a lot of new polish (cheaper than perfume!) so today I am in a new one, Deborah Lippmann No More Drama, a tan with copper subtle shimmer.
Just finished my tips with A England Briar Rose, a stunning dark pink/maroon (magenta) scattered holo. This is probably on the verge of too dark for this time of year, but I wanted to wear it anyway.
For an awfully long day of meetings at work, I am in Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere. Hope it works :)
Posting late, but wearing a favorite - L'Occitane Immortelle de Corse. Three days until a short staycation, and I can't wait!
Love that one!
Today my tips are done in OPI Kermit Me To Speak - a metallic lilac and green duochrome.
I sampled this house several years ago, and loved Memoirs of a Trespasser! The other that I really like was the Cobra one (? a leather). Falling Into the Sea had a sharp, unpleasant note to it...
I actually prefer the EDT. To me, the lilly if full enough in the EDT (and actually a little overwhelming at first), and I appreciate the cucumber/green watery aspect that is more prominent in the...
Tips just done in A England Princess Sabra, a medium green holo.
Monday always comes too soon! Ah well, FM En Passant from an ignored sample for me today to start things off. My lilacs have been blooming for a couple of weeks, and it reminded me to try this one...
Yes, a supporting member is a paid membership. Always something to consider if you are going to visit the site much, and certainly for extensive use of the sale/trade threads.
Well done! Yes, there are some classic feminines that are great "new" masculines. Try to find O de Lancome at your local department store and give it a sniff. Cheap, and incredibly refreshing for...
Hello all! Happy Friday, and I see we all made it past hump day :)
I woke up with a strange urge for PG Coze, so I am out of synch. This is one that I wish I had hoarded, or at least gotten a...
Inspired by Jack Hunter's thread over on the Male side, I'm wearing Guerlain SDV. It has turned a little cooler here, so it seems fitting today.
Good morning all! In honor of my first iris buds showing up this spring, I am wearing Hermes Hiris!
Totally agree here. If you can find this one, I think it is one of the best from L'Occitane, if the notes are agreeable to you. Beautiful honey and immortelle.
Roberto, you know that I love how you smell today!!! :kiss::kiss:
I am in Delrae Bois de Paradis this morning, my fruity, woody lovely.
I did not finish any bottles in 2014. And if I recall correctly, I only purchased one - PdE Cuir Ottoman.
Happy Monday everyone. I'm in Hermes Un Jardin sur le Nil today, a happy green and easy fragrance for spring, which has sprung here.
Well, if you really love one of them (looks like you like VIW), you ought to buy it from them. It sounds like you could develop a very good relationship with them (and lots more samples!)
Tips in Sephora by OPI Metro Chic.
Try the Hermes Un Jardin line (there are 5 now). One of them might click with you.
Jon, that is classic!!!! :lolk: Actually, both your perfume and the Windows pic made me laugh out loud.
I will have to synch this evening because I rushed out of the house with no thought to my fragrance, and wore (finished!!!) a decant of K. Mercheri Iris d'Ardent. This one is pleasant and does not...
LOL! I have been known to do this also :)
I will sometimes get in a little fragrance rut, or lull, where I wear a fragrance several days in a row because I don't want to think about fragrances,...
I am in VC&A Bois d'Iris today - and this is not working for me because I HATE iris!!!!
April fools :)
Erin, congrats on the job. And I'm sorry about the breakup. Hugs to you :)
Agree, 30 Roses, great reviews! I love how each person picks up on different nuances! Nice!
Tips now in Chanel Starlet, a coral leaning pink with a soft shimmer.
Thank you RVB! That sounds very nice, and certainly worth a sample.
3 x L'Occitane Immortelle de Corse
2 x Chanel 31 rue Cambon
1 x Chanel Bois des Iles, Fendi Theorema, Chanel No. 5 Eau Premeire, Ava Luxe No. 23, M. Micallef Gaiac, Chanel 1932, Chanel No. 18,...
Oh, teardrop! I am going to have to use "wheelie bin"! Love it!!!!
Joining easyfish and Dr. G in Chanel today, but I am in the lovely No. 18. Warm weather brings out all the loveliness of this...
I'm in Chanel 31 rue Cambon today, which I wear often, but I did reorganize some fragrances this weekend so that I rotate a few more warm weather scents into my routine. Spring cleaning!!!
I would apply whatever I wanted to wear out that evening. Most likely a "clean" office scent that is on it's last leg won't interfere too much.
Nice collection! And cool table too! :)
Wow, Coromandel, on me, is the longest lasting of the bunch - 12 hours at least, and very potent for the first 6 hours or so. Sorry it didn't work for you, but it sounds like you had a wonderful...
That's a nice one! I love 1270! Glad you guys had fun!
This is an incredible house, but I prefer Cuir Ottoman and Ambre Russe, which I think are stand outs. Not really a bad one in the bunch to be honest.
I would not buy the fragrance then, if you are worried about batches.
Thanks hednic. I am looking forward to sampling this one.
Happy Birthday, Foustie!!!!!!
I am in synch in one of my favorite warm weather fragrances - Chanel 1932. Cool, crisp and inviting!
We are approaching the end of the first quarter. How is this going, Buysblind?!
Kiliwia, how exciting!
Roberto, oh goodness, another fan of the new Chanel. I'm trying to not even sample it, because I know I will love it. But my resolve is wearing thin. :)
I'm in M....
More iris today - PdE Equistrius, which is not my favorite but it is easy to wear.
Joining Robin in a K. Mecheri fragrance today - Iris d'Argent. Spring has sprung, and it is time to bust out the iris. My iris is leafed out, but no buds yet.
Just applied Zoya Faye to tips.
Fun indeed!!! Enjoy them all!!
Good morning all! I am wearing Penhaligon's Empressa today from the sample pass. Wishing everyone a great start to the week!
Hey guys. I was able to try Levantium and Lothhair, and will wear Empressa today.
Levantium was a miss for me unfortunately. After a bright opening, in which I could not really distinguish the...
OK, here we go! I received the samples two days ago, but have been unable to wear them yet. But today I am going to wear Levantium, so will post my thoughts either tonight or in the morning. ...
