    In Cuir Mauresque today and feel warm and cozy because of it!
  2. Re: Newbies need to be aware of fake fragrances.

    That's a good idea, sometimes I'm wary if the item isn't boxed or sealed. I took a risk recently with a bottle of Douce Amere I bought off ebay. It wasn't boxed and the seller said there were a...

    Re: Chamade and Pollen

    Just out of curiosity, do you think a polleny scent could trigger hayfever in sufferers? Some perfumes, mainly Flowerbomb, Ange ou Demon and Dior Addict have caused me to have massive sneezing fits,...

    Re: Coco

    I only recently tried Coco for the first time - it always sounded very heavy to me. I tried both the edt and edp and much preferred the latter. It seemed warmer and smoother, the aldehydes weren't as...

  8. Re: Lynx Africa (Axe Africa in N.America)???

    Jokke, I will admit that Africa is one of the nicer Lynx deodorants. I just didn't like every boy around me wearing it in school. Still, I'm sure us girls were as bad with Exclamation or Charlie ;)
  9. Re: Lynx Africa (Axe Africa in N.America)???

    Probably - my memory is of boys (and it was always boys, no self-respecting male over the age of 18 should wear Lynx in the UK) stinking of the stuff, and not even over-applying. I've always seen...
  10. Re: Please help me find a gourmand fragrance.

    Parfumerie Generale's Aomassai smells like hazelnuts and caramel on me with a hint of woods in the background. I've got a spare sample of it, PM me if you'd like me to send it to you.

    Re: NEW: Bond no 9 High Line

    Why does "marine green floral" make me think this will smell like grass? Or wet grass, more specifically. The bottle's pretty though.
