    Re: NEW Serge Lutens Des clous pour une pelure

    The Holt's in Toronto has it out already so Holt's in Mtl most likely will as well. On the smelling strip, it smelled zingy and spicy and fruity, but a bit 'young'? If my 21-year-old cousin had been...
  4. Re: Recommendations for my step-mom, who has classic taste?

    Thank you all very much for the suggestions! She will probably have tried all the Lauder/Guerlain/Lancôme scents, but Knize Ten Lady, Ormonde Janye, and Papillon are almost certainly not on her...
  5. Recommendations for my step-mom, who has classic taste?

    Can anyone recommend a fragrance for my step-mother, who has classic taste in perfume? She has worn Van Cleef & Arpels First most every day for years, although it's not the only perfume she owns --...

    SA had to order it from another store - less than a week till I get my grubby paws on it!
  7. Re: How do you politely back out of a transaction bc their bottle may be a fake?

    Thank you -- these are useful, and shouldn't ruffle too many feathers. And it seems like if you think someone is selling a fake bottle, you presume they know it's fake and don't cautiously point out...
  8. How do you politely back out of a transaction bc their bottle may be a fake?

    Etiquette question from a newbie here. I was in talks to purchase a bottle from someone of a perfume that is widely faked. The seller sent me a couple of photos (which were pretty blurry) and the...

  11. Re: What are some of the best fragrance advertisements/posters?

    The Sophie Dahl ads for Opium in 2000. Decidedly controversial; I thought they were fabulous.

    Re: What makes a perfume “sexy”?

    Dark or smoky vanilla -- a la Shalimar (a weapon of mass seduction). Tuberose. Siberian/Egyptian musk. Patchouli, if used judiciously.

    Re: Smelled on the Street

    Caught a blast of Black Opium from a woman in the elevator today.
  14. Re: What is your least favorite part about buying a perfume?

    Sales assistants. I want to sample things in person and wear several times in different environments before investing in a full bottle, and I do not like being bothered when shopping. I've had SAs...
  15. Recommendations - a rose like La Fille de Berlin?

    I have a decant of La Fille de Berlin that's beautiful -- a big, plush, jammy peppery rose that isn't sweet or pale -- for about 10 minutes. After that, the rose goes AWOL. Maybe it's just my...

    Thoughts on "occasion" perfumes?

    What are people's thoughts on certain fragrances only being appropriate for certain occasions? E.g. this fragrance is heavy/heady/sensual, so should only be worn in the evening, vs. this fragrance is...

    rynegne, oh no! That sounds like the worst way to wake up. Fingers crossed for your condo sale.

    Re: SOTD: Friday, 13th December, 2019

    what a cacophony of smells! are any of them blending nicely, or are you just getting gusts of one fragrance, then another?

    Today I'm wearing a decant of 1980's Mitsouko parfum. This is really...

    Thank you :) I'm new-ish to perfume and don't have the most sensitive nose, so this thread seemed like a low-stakes place to dip a toe in.
