    Damn - You're the one who got that bottle?! I had NM do a check for me and they couldn't find one at any of their stores, and this was a few months ago...
  81. Re: Heard at the Saks counter: New Creed 'Acqua' Line

    Apparently, they just debuted the new line officially at Exsense. The only report I've heard is "nice, but weak".

    Re: BN Meet-Up San Francisco, CA 9/19-9/21 2014

    For the out-of-towners, most of the city's main hotels are around Union Square, so it's possible to walk. There are many parking garages around Union Square as well. There's also a BART station in...

    Re: BN Meet-Up San Francisco, CA 9/19-9/21 2014

    Hi everyone.

    I'll reach out to Tama, who does the SF Sniff, and see if I can get her to help us out. She knows EVERYONE. I can see what I can put together for Saturday, though it's far enough in...
  85. Re: Have anyone tried Super Cambodi from Oudimentary?

    When Oudimentary first opened their store in Fremont, they invited the SF Sniff crew for a preview party. I couldn't make it, but was given some swag anyway. Unfortunately, not the Super Cambodi,...

    Re: Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo

    I'm quite horrified that they've discontinued Cipresso di Toscana, which was a complex Duchoufour woody incense masterpiece, but keep that terrifying almond one. But the new Juniper one they've just...

    Re: Favorite Vintage Scents- some insight

    I've seen some very serious experts cringe at the idea of "vintage" perfumes. Their complaints are usually chemical - Given 5 or 10 years, citrus notes lose their brightness, while aldehydes start...
  89. Anyone try Fragrance Republ!c yet? Thoughts?

    I just got a notice that a company called Fragrance Republ!c is launching their fifth perfume at a party in San Francisco in February. Apparently, they release one-off, niche perfumes from...

    Re: BN meetup in 2014, possible dates and places

    I just saw this and may be able to clarify. Years ago, I used to put together unofficial meet-ups of Basenotes members in San Francisco (here's a link). Then, I met Tama from CaFleurBon, who was...

    Re: Ineke Scent Library - Midday Sniff

    As an aside, when we used to do the San Francisco Basenotes meet-ups, Ineke came to two of them (she's from here). She brought interesting raw ingredients and showed us how they come together to...
  92. Re: Use of the word, "lotion", to describe perfume.

    My mom has Chanel No 5 as a "lotion". It's milky and not as concentrated as an EDP or Extrait. I think it has less alcohol and something slightly creamy added. It's still a spray and doesn't wear...
  93. Re: Disaster strikes! You must vacate your home. What 10 scents go in your survival kit?

  94. Re: Deal-breaker notes, What are your least favorite perfume notes?

    This is going to sound snobby, but there are certain notes put into scents to make them smell familiar and comfortable to people who specifically AREN'T fragrance aficionados, and they're pretty much...
  95. Re: How would you describe the (synthetic) civet note in for example Kouros?

    If you're anywhere near a Le Labo counter, they sell a kit with ingredients in it and they'll usually have one out that you can sniff. It includes civetone (the synthetic civet that everyone uses...

    I think Back To Black and Straight To Heaven are the obvious choices, but quality time spent with Cruel Intentions and other early scents will pay off.

    But I completely agree that they pretty much...

    I talked to the Creed guy in SF about this. Apparently, it was a limited edition release for Mothers Day back in 2007 or so. Much like Windsor, it was supposedly a very old formula.

    It really depends on where you are. If there's a Neiman Marcus or a Saks nearby, Bloomingdales will often stick to lower end perfumes. But if it's the nicest store in town, they'll have a lot more...
