    Re: Alternative to Scent Strips?

    Tissue.

    I find it perfect for testing fragrances. You can wave it past your head and it simulates smelling it on the breeze. I always found scent strips ridiculous for trying to incorporate the...

    Re: Fragonard Billet Doux

    I have the edition in the gold bottle- without any frippery or frothiness- its simply a very warm and creamy carnation, with milky spices that dont bite. I find it shares similarities with D&G The...

  8. Re: Do you know any perfumes with the note of crème brulée???

  10. Re: Do you know any perfumes with the note of crème brulée???

    Oh dear, this is going to be a rude awakening...Lexington is a direct copy of a Britney fragrance- In Control, which is way cheaper than Bond's overinflated prices.

  11. Re: J***s C****t! A Tale of TERROR in the Perfume Biz

  13. Re: EDT's destroyed--the tale of my mini-fridge

    I think this refrigeration business is all hype. As long as you store your fragrances in a dark cool place, there really is no need for refrigeration. Just as heat can be extreme, so too can cold.

    Givenchy Hot Couture EDT or EDP?

    So I am intrigued at the sound of this and read the reviews on MUA, but of course, 98% of the reviews dont specify EDT or EDP. Most annoying.

    Re: Scent of water recommendations?

    The closest I have come to a scent that evokes water on its own, is Black by Kenneth Cole.
    To me, its like a tall, cold glass of water. Pure, cool, and thirst quenching.
