The air right before it snows
Navy is classic. Don't like the black; there's no contrast. The wine is nice without being drab or flashy.
So spring is here and the 6+ peony bushes I have will be blooming soon. I can only enjoy them for about a week before they start falling off but love their fragrance. Any recommendations for a...
I bought the 3 I had on my list just in case of reformulation.
Salome is not as dark but very civet heavy which appeals to me. Also the cumin. But APLS is dark and sexy I think and being discontinued. I would grab it first if you plan to purchase both.
I have and love both but bought a backup bottle of Salome. A think it's the winner.
Took just a few days but keep in mind I placed my order Dec 17th. DHL seemed to be the problem.
Ok. Update. Package arrived in US last nite. Might actually get it next week.
Yes it does. Could it be stuck in customs then?
Does not appear to be clear. Still stating being exported to destintation country.
Not yet. I sent an email to customer service and they were contacting DHL. Sent a second email asking the status but have not heard back. Still no movement on DHL or USPS tracking. I will ask...
Twisted Lily has a sample set. Just ordered mine.
Thanks. I have problems with patience. Forget the extra!
Only that it has received notice the package is being sent.
Ok I'm probably a bit axnious but order was shipped December 17th and destined for US. That was on 20th. USPS does not have it yet. Is this normal or is there another strike in Germany?
I bought Diadem & found it to be top quality. Diadem is an amazing caramel & vanilla scent. Mark Benke prefers Aristograti & actually has a review somewhere on his website.
They just shut down the website. Of course before I could finish my order. Not sure those prices were correct. Way too low I think.
I'll be there. Anybody want to do a sample swap while there? I have to unload some...
I use a tackle box from Bass Pro
Just speculation. I read this posting and it sounds like it could be possible in the near future.
I just bought a bottle on Amazon and it's definitely old formula. The seller was Vogue perfumes or fragrances in Texas if you can buy on-line. Not sure if there are any left but if you don't want...
Mystic Dragon is also wonderful. On my list to purchase. Gotten compliments while testing samples.
For moisturizing, you can't beat a bar of Ceave soap. Only thing is, you don't feel so clean afterwards cause you're so soft. I also buy local soap makers. Anything containing olive oil or goat milk.
I wear vintage Opium, Obession & Youth Dew. I also wear Tea for Two and Carnal Flower. I would definitely put Mom in either Prowl or Midnight Tryst. My two favorites from this line to date. I'm also...
Trying to consolidate and some of these are just not making the cut for me. Prices include shipping within U.S.
Discontinued Serge Lutens Rousse 1.7 ozs 95% remaining with box $150...
Registration open! http://www.sniffapalooza.com
Zephyr of course we can have coffee! My husband & I usually stay in Jersey & take the train in. This year, I think we are actually going to find a hotel in the city.
Neo, I know Scent Bar in LA...
For mom - Neil Morris October. Cinnamon, pumpkin & all things fall. One of my favorites.
It's usually in New York City.
Hednic - If you've never been, it's definitely an experience & you get to meet alot of great people
Sniffapalooza Fall Ball Save the date posted for October 24-25th. Who's in this year?
Maybe the marketplace should only be for paid members. That would prompt me to upgrade.
Lalique Amethyst - blackberry & wood. Marketed to women but I think it's more unisex.
CeraVe soap and lotion. I get a huge tub of it at a time. fragrance really stick to it too..
Even though its a women's fragrance, I would suggest Kenzo Jungle the Elephant. This is extremely spicy & the strongest scent I own. And it can be had for cheap on the internet.
I would recommend a stop by Sephora. They have roller balls for $25 and usually change up the selection pretty frequently. I just snagged Atelier Sud Magnolia and they have many others.
I was just there a few weeks ago and it was my second visit. I was more prepared this time; pretty overwhelmed the last time. I would recommend sending an email if there are specific fragrances...
I just saw Tea for Two on Twisted Lily's website this morning. Appears they have stock for anyone not already commited to L'Artisan website purchase.
Yes it is me, and I remember how brave I thought you were to take the train up by yourself for the event. Funny you should mention Lucky Scent as I am in LA until Thursday and am hoping...
My husband and I are also attending. Saturday only as well. This will be our 3rd year attending. I must say, I am extremely disappointed with the Henri Bendel situation. Was one of my favorite...
You girls doing Sniffapoolza this fall? Hubby & I will be there....send pm.
I still do. Have 2 bottles of the old stuff; one active and a backup. Love the woody smell,
An SA telling me what I "must" smell. And then waving a paper stick under my nose. I consider my nose personel space. Stay out!
I get the printed boxes from Michaels or ACMoore. A 50% coupon makes them pretty cheap. I then leave them on my dresser. They look nice and bottles are out of the light. I use a large tackle box for...
I'm in MD and would love to putin for the NDN but your pm box is full. :(
I go to alot of estate sales and pick up men's as well as women's fragrances. So right now, I have the following that need good homes; shipping to CONUS only please:
Aqua Velva Menthol Mist...
Since you mentioned you are frugal, you might want to also try estate sales. I've had great success and found some classics and vintages for a few bucks. It's also a fun hobby too. Estatesales.net...
Thanks, Knit at Nite. I managed to snag a mini at a flea market and struggled myself to identify it. Nice fragrance.
It's Liz Clairborne Vivid.
I vote for Straight to Heaven. Bought this for my husband. Love it....
Most of Kilians fragrances will last 12+ hours. I think his stuff is just 1% shy of required oils to be considered pure perfume. However, it doesn't extend too far past personal space. I would...
So from a woman's point of view, I can tell you I will follow any man wearing this...I have been working through all of the By Kilians and when I sprayed this, I stopped. MikePerez23, you are right...
I'm loving the ouds. Bought Kilian's Insense Oud which I love. Working through samples of his Rose Oud and Amber Oud. And just bought Montale's Black Oud. If you get past the first 20 minutes,...
Just noticed on Saks website that Kilian will be at Tysons Corner location Saturday April 21st from 1-5 for the launch of Asian Tales. Looks like I'm driving to Virginia.
Aspen for women by Coty. $5 steal at local flea market. Then I had to find 2 backup bottles since it's discontinued.
+1 for L'Jungle Elephant. This is my all time favorite. Spicy extreme, this is more unisex.
Traveling to Warsaw in a week or two for work. I am leaving a day early to have some tme to tour around the city, learn a little history and shop. I found a website that has a list of...
Thanks, Gary. I wore the Tea for Two today. Such a wonderful smoke note. Not synthentic at all. I was surprised at the unusual combination. This is my first L'Artisan fragrance. I am looking...
After reading about local places for perfume purchases, I was on the west side of the Baltimore beltway and finally stopped at Field's Pharmacy. What a gem! Mercifully, the store was closing but I...
For a $1 this morning I bought an unknown fragrance at the flea market. It's 1/2 oz and the gold label lists it as Priscilla Lane Shantung Perfume Baltimore Md. It has a pink screw top...
