    Re: Champs Elysees

    Yep, I'm one of y'all - or one of us - or however that goes. I'm so intrigued with the idea of a perfume smelling of mimosa. A dear friend's family had a large, old mimosa tree in their back yard...

    Champs Elysees

    I'm so glad the forum is back! Can anyone out there walk me through a description of Guerlain's Champs Elysees? Maybe compare it to something contemporary that I might have encountered? I've read...

    I remember when Uninhibited came out and I tried to wear it for quite a while because it was so beautiful and different. Unfortunately, I could never apply lightly enough, and usually got a raging...

    Re: someone familiar with frederic malle?

    Thank you both! Alas, I live nowhere near a Barney's and so must take a small leap of faith. I think I'll follow Omega Man's advice and purchase a decant first. Any recommendations for a source?

    My suggestion: L'eau d'hiver - Frederic Malle. I filled out their online questionnaire and rc'd a most generous sample of this lovely fragrance. At first, it was a little too, but I found myself...

    Best advice for new fragrance search?

    What's your best advice for selecting a new fragrance? I've read so much great commentary here and I've tested and sampled and sniffed and I've narrowed my choices down to a handful, and would like...

    What great advice. My (first round of) samples are on their way! Here's the list: (a couple of these are for my 14 year old daughter - after I pass on them . . . )

  10. Re: Can you help more than the perfume zombies at the mall?

    Wouldn't it be great to still be guided by the grand dames who worked the perfume counters in the 70's and 80's? Those gals knew their stuff and would probably still be around if all our department...
  11. Re: Can you help more than the perfume zombies at the mall?

    No disrespect intended - just awfully disappointed when Paris, which smelled so lovely, hit my skin and did that acidic, toxic, fingernails on a chalkboard, . .. just stanky thing that I think Poison...

  14. Can you help more than the perfume zombies at the mall?

    OK folks, I'm seriously shopping for a new scent. I've done lots of legwork, sniffed the coffee beans and listened sincerely to the bored zombies at Dillard's. I diligently tried the samples they...
