Sorry for your loss, easyfish.
Chanel Coromandel, today.
Contrary to popular belief, some camellia species do have scent. (Camellia sinensis is of course Tea.) I went to a camellia exposition...
That's an interesting predicament that so many people's first perfumes are now discontinued or rare.
I have no such problem because 30 Roses generously gave me a decant of our mutual first...
Is the Dune decant still available?
I have pmed you.
Pacifica Spanish Amber
thank you for the beautiful pictures mdclx and making us aware of this amazing museum!
Chanel Bois des Iles
Amouage Dia pour Femme
It's a far cry now from what it used to be. Back in the eighties, my experience was that anyone who wore a suit and tie or skirt wore fragrance.
Welcome to Basenotes, flaubert!
Caron Nuit de Noel
Not a fan of fruit other than citrus, but I've got a sample of Prescriptives Calyx for today
You're right, it is discontinued, which I forgot to mention. That fact that it can still be bought cheaply right now was the reason for my feeling a bit urgent about recommending it.
Caron Parfum Sacrée
I've been thinking of 30 Roses lately and hoping all is well with her and her mom.
Lolita Lempicka L'eau de Jolie
from a sample given with a purchase.
The other sample was a horrid Jessica Simpson fragrance from a gourmand line Taste or Dessert or something. Too awful to...
Eau de Guerlain
Thanks for the osmanthus tips, guys.
I second what hednic has already said.
I had a set of 12 mini-bottles of Jean Patou perfumes back in the day including Adieu Sagesse, and with Joy, I can say emphatically that Amour Amour and Que Sais-je were my favorite Patous,...
SL à La Nuit
Over the weekend I tried Hermès Osmanthus Yunnan and Ormonde Jayne Osmanthus side by side.
I think I am getting what Osmanthus smells like - light, airy, but dirty at the same...
Pacifica Orange Blossom Neroli
Diptyque Eau Lente
Cuir de Lancome & Cuir de Russie
I bought a sample of Balmain de Balmain on a clearance, and I have not regretted it.
This is a wonderful green fragrance. Unfortunately I am quite sure now that I am allergic to some ingredient in...
Balmain de Balmain
Thanks for this. I think this may help me manage my allergies, too.
I was doing some research on a particular note yesterday when I found a random link. I clicked to a one page website from the...
Happy Birthday, kalli!
DK Black Cashmere
Nice story, Quarry.
SOTD is AG Songes
SOTD was Norell
Happy Birthday, Jon!
SOTD was also Cuir de Russie
Welcome to Basenotes, mfh647!
Welcome to Basenotes, Marlfox!
Xscent Thanks for the tip!
I tried Beige recently and it was love. It is totally on my secret wish list.
I'm debating whether to buy a FB from the official Chanel website or re-learn how to use...
Welcome back Trilby Lark and foxbins!
Virtually everything I've worn in 2014 was new to me.
Recently I have been having a blast working my way through the Ormonde Jayne Discovery Set (30% off Black Friday Sale purchase).
I was mostly...
They do look and sound lovely but
Marry Us? Chive? Really?
Ah, I see what you did there.
Deliberately provoking people with personal insults and then disingenuously blaming them when they respond negatively and then pretending to have the high moral...
She's fun on this forum.
I'm getting tired of personal attacks on her instead of reasoned debate. It isn't necessary; it only buttresses her point about offensiveness; and it's against the rules....
All of those people cannot possibly be having birthdays today. I suspect something is awry.
Perhaps January 1st is a default birthday on Basenotes?
I also live where in-store testing is unavailable, so I must rely on sample services. With literally hundreds of new fragrances flooding the market each year, how to know what to test? I would really...
Ormonde Jayne Sampaquita
Happy New Year everyone!
Welcome to Basenotes, Goldfinger, Willfromtoronto and Aphroditelux!
+1 Hermès Iris Ukiyoe
L'Occitane Rose et Reines
Pacifica Neroli Orange Blossom
Ormonde Jayne Ta'aif
Pacifica Spanish Amber
It's interesting that you ask this, because if you want to know what fragrance it is you want to sample or buy, you need to know its name before just about anything else except maybe its composition....
Hope that you and your mother get to a more comfortable place soon, 30 Roses.
And you are right, Betsey. After a couple times of "I can't see my car in the driveway because it's---- just under...
Welcome to Basenotes eccj!
I have tested most of these recently and Bois des Isles and Beige were my favorites, but I'm a frangipani lover.
I liked Sycomore a lot but found it rather masculine. Coromandel was the densest...
My discovery set from the Black Friday sale from Ormonde Jayne has arrived. Yeowww!!!
Ormonde Jayne Zizan
Diptyque Feu de Bois
Hermès Un Jardin Sur Le Toit
Maybe another Jo Malone.
Guerlain Insolence or any of the Acqua Allegoria line
Chanel No. 18
I'll bet any number of flankers to these designer scents would suit her style : Bulgari Omnia or...
Oh, you rocked so many different hair styles and managed to look beautiful in all of them. Quite a feat!
Sorry for your loss, mocha!
Welcome to Basenotes, me-blonde!
Here's a list based on some of your note preferences (although you have a couple of aquatics, I couldn't nail down anything that fit)
I don't know if all of these...
Fragrantica's reviews mention a number of fragrances that this one evoked:
Ange ou Demon le secret
Jil Sandesr Sun
Elie Saab le pafum
I enjoyed your video, Quarry. Very well done!
cello, you're wearing....sushi?
My SOTD is Prescriptives Calyx.
How is it possible that the thread has been going on this long without a mention of Giorgio?
That was absolutely inescapable in the '80s and got into everyone's airspace.
I never liked it but it...
Good luck at the dentist, Mocha!
Sotd is vintage Mary Chess Tapestry
Best Perfume list of 2014
it has been linked in a post in a thread in the Men's Fragrance Discussion section
for your convenience.
I don't get your point. This topic has nothing to do with tech, but it is a general discussion.
This could easily have been posted in General Discussion.
Get well soon, ineespenes.
I'm in vintage Floris Ormonde today.
It is not in the Basenotes or Fragrantica directories. I have it in perfume form although it was marketed to...
Ya made me laugh.
Thank you for your replies. I'm very fond of different types of incense, but there was one kind in perfumes that I couldn't tolerate as a young woman. I guess I'll never be able to identify it....
OMG, zeniba, your baking sounds delicious!
I hope you have a better week, too, dora.
My SOTD is SMN Ginestra.
I've only ever seen Scotch Broom in pictures. I know it was the personal symbol...
Thank you for posting about this. I had a difficult time placing my order as the check-out screen froze every time I tried to hit enter.
I left an e-mail and received a phone call in order to make...
In some perfumes the notes will be given as frankincense, myrrh, opoponax, etc. and at other times the ingredient is just given the generic term of "incense". What exactly is meant by this "incense"?...
Love this slip. Christina is the actress. The couturière is Nina.
People who do not live near major department stores have to rely on the internet.
They buy samples and decants from businesses who specialize in that service. Or they go in on splits here on...
Thanks for cluing me in. I didn't even know "sex panther" came from a joke.
Pacifica Spanish Amber
Amazing work, again. The second version really makes better sense. But Aventus is still in the middle of the pack - hee!
"There’s this positive review written in 2009 for Kouros, of...
Amber does come to mind about what you are describing, but perhaps it might be the opoponax in Shalimar. Opoponax is a type of incense that most people describe as smelling like English toffee.
AdP Magnolia Nobile
Very pretty, but it's not reminding me of the variety of magnolia we have around here. I'll have to save the rest of my sample for May and compare. Even though we have seven...
My SOTDs for the last three days have been
HdP Vert Pivoine
DK Black Cashmere
EL PC Tuberose Gardenia
all excellent fragrances.
Your costume sounds great, teardrop!
Glad you have your...
I thought exactly the same thing. I think I had the edt; that may make a difference.
Fabulous sandalwood is Chanel Bois des Iles.
Getting close to 2000 yet?
That's an exciting find!
Perry Ellis Black for Her
I sincerely hope that you do not continue to be "accused" of being gay. Maybe mistaken for being gay, or perhaps stereotyped as being gay. But "accused" implies that you have done or are something...
Hi, TPP and welcome to Basenotes!
But you're still not posting in the right thread. What you want is two forums up - the DIY forum. That's where all the experts hang out. Good luck!
I was a bit confused. The graphic on the second page of that review calls it Santal Royal by GIVENCHY.
I did not realize that the Creeds -MI, VIW, & SMW - were considered unisex. I haven't heard of any women wearing them.
Welcome to Basenotes, NSR!
