Hello all. SL L'Orpheline.
I love it. Its quiet and understated, well for uncle Serge. LOL The incense is warm and actually quite fresh, I found Avignon to be very stark and bought a different one from Series 3 Incense...
Hello all. Coty Wild Musk oil version.
Hello all. L'Artisan Tea For Two(original version)
LOL!!!!!! Funny, I actually wore it the other day, Coty Wild Musk oil version. I remember going to Boots with my mum and using my pocket money to buy a bottle. It has to be the oil version...
To be honest my take is:
In the US/Canada there seems to be so much of the,'Do not wear fragrance at work', with the strange allergies that affect that part of the world. I do not mean to...
I suppose the easiest thing is go by the bottle change, if you find the date the volume changed from 90mls to 100mls. So you know 90mls are pre (insert date) and after(insert date), but the female...
Yes, quite a few.
Hello all. Prada Candy
It was another list ages ago, Thatcher wasn't on that list but Elizabeth was said to wear it and I think Penhaligons said she did too.
Oh well in Ireland its very different. When out and about I am always smelling fragrance, on the bus, in stores and even walking round the streets I can smell fragrance.
Hello all. Annick Goutal Myrrh Ardente
Oh dear didn't we prove this one was wrong.
Cary Grant ~ Green Irish Tweed
In an interview Olivier stated he worked on this and worked on it he was unhappy it was not completed until 1986,...
I would class my body skin as normal, I do moisturize after a bath of course, but fragrance lasts really well on me. Classic example is Chanel 28 La Pausa, review after review says disappears in 10...
Hello all. Coty Wild Musk oil version.
Hello all. Miller Harris Fleur Oriental.
Hello all. Molton Brown Shisur
NO!!!!! I used to get the 10cc version sung at me in school.
Okay, I won't be joining in tomorrow. I don't do fruit(I do have some fragrances with fruit opening), and multi fruits a big no.
Lolita Lempicka original.
You get an empty black case and two 30mls glass atomizers which you fit one in at a time. They are more expensive so you are paying for the extra 10mls.
I have found only certain department...
Molton Brown Navigations Through Scent Shisur
I was wandering around killing time before heading for my bus, so wandered into a Molton Brown store and down to the Sales shelves at the back. ...
Hello all. PG Iris Oriental
Well going by the many times its has been asked on Basenotes, a number of men(and woman), just want to know what to wear to attract. Strangely the perfume overload thing I tend to read on forums...
Once opened if stored properly as said perfume will still keep for many years.
Fresh air, I think that be okay. LOL
Hello all. L'Artisan Parfumeur Jour de Fete
L'Heure Magique by Laura Mercier
Hello all. Tom Ford Velvet Orchid.
Hello all. MPG Santal Noble.
Going through my wardrobe, I was beginning to think I had nothing from the 80s!!!!! Opium is 1977( I was shocked as I thought at least 1980), Coco popped up but not in the mood for that today. ...
Hello all. Diptyque Eau de Lavande
I prefer the stick ones, Avon used to do an unscented one but discontinued it.
I used the Dove Invisible Dry which has very very very faint hint of fragrance but disappears when applied.
Hello all Volutes.
Not in the UK its, even if you buy a full size bottle. Boutique told friend they no longer make them.
Hello all. Caron Rose edp
I have a 4ml mini of Coromandel given to me by a friend years back, he bought from Old Bond Street a large bottle. Seems they do not do these anymore just the 2mls spray. Well come on most did...
The thing with vanilla I tend to find is most of it is just so sweet your teeth start to ache from first sniff. I call this the vanilla fudge fragrance, I like mine dark and dirty(just like my...
It must be my skin pulling the rose, as it lasted really well(I even washed my hands and could still smell it), but the rose was leaping out at me
Hello all. Parfum DelRae Mythique.
Actually tried it yesterday on the skin. On me its very very rose.
Couldn't care less about the bottle as long as it sprays properly. I am all about the juice always have been.
One bottle which looked really interesting but was a bloody nightmare to use, Donna...
Hello all. La Collections Lancome Magie
Well it was a tosh up between de Nicolai Vanille Tonka or SL Un Bois Vanille.
Firstly I am not a big fan of vanilla, many vanilla based fragrances are sugar sweet like eating vanilla fudge. ...
Hello all. SL Un Bois de Vanille.
Hello all. L'Artisan Parfumeur Tea For Two(mine is the original version from early 00s), I really need to start wearing this one more.
To be honest, my first thought when seeing it was a linen spray and also use on the body.
Have to say Rue Cambon is my favourite of the newbies. I was really really lucky to get a 30mls decant a few years back for £28, the site has now closed!!! Then went straight on to buy a full...
Hello all. Magie Noire.
I spotted in SpaceNK today, never tried on my skin though there was a tester.
Hello all. Prada Amber.
Must give these a sniff(apart from Pom Noir), Birch and Black Pepper sounds interesting.
Agree, I doubt its from 1933(the Creed fairy stories of created for Marlene Dietrich(sp)), when its a very modern fragrance. I own about 30 mls of Angelique from a split and very nice it is too. ...
Hello all. Testing a sample of Valentino Uomo, actually liking it though its very sweet.
Sublime, Jicky, Shalimar, Parure Must and the Opium would be my choices. But really only go for those who will love and wear, its unless buying if you are just going to look at the boxes.
Er, sorry but that is not a Chanel Exclusif or any Chanel I have ever heard of???
No 22 I own a 80s version and it could blast half the hemisphere with the aldehyde but does settle down. LOL
Hello all. Prada Amber as its now called.
It can take a while for a new fragrance to hit the data base, there are so many releases each month.
My Prada original packed in a few months ago, the sprayer just stopped. So checking round for deals on Prada Amber(as its now called), decided to see what deals after christmas. The gift set...
Yes, do get samples and test. I did not like Santal Majuscule and I really love sandalwood and uncle Serge.
As for Jeaux de Peau it starts smelling of baked pastry but quickly changes and I...
Hello all. Decided to go with a rave from the grave so to speak, well its a very long time since I wore it.
Sacrebleu by Nicolai, in fact my juice is now a deep amber colour!!!!! LOL Still...
Changed to Butter London Fishwife today.
I had a few new to me, new releases and also fragrance which I became aware of.
So going for Arpege by Lanvin, it was going cheap in a sale so sprayed the tester and fell in love.
On the back of the bottle very close to the bottom should be a lasered number, this number should match a number on the box.
Also as its from duty free, I cannot see it being fake.
Hello all. Dior Homme original version from 2005.
The secret is to hold the cotton pad soaked in the eye makeup remover on each eye for 20 seconds plus before gently wiping.
I like Simple eye makeup remover.
Wipes, yeah no problem but give it...

Hello all. Wearing Mitsouko edp.

Nuit Etoilée by Annick Goutal
Hello all. Y edp not sure if 10 years old is classed as vintage???
For a number of weeks not been wearing polish at all. So applied Tuesday and its OPI Patent Desert Crimson.
Well having a think, my brain went blank for today, don't think I own any grass like fragrances, but maybe I do????
Just went for Parfum de Nicolai Baladin, I know it has mint and tarragon in it,...
Hello all. Parfums de Nicolai Baladin

Sienne L'Hiver by Eau d'Italie

Oh and 60 in not...
Hello everyone. Belle d'Opium
Its opoponax which is mentioned in Shalimar but the Guerlainade always has the play doe heliotrope thing going on. They never tell what makes up the Guerlainade base though. I have one of the...
Vol de Nuit in edt is very powdery and nothing like Shalimar to me(long time user, never buy modern version), Les Nereides Imperial Opoponax is very similar to Shalimar dry down from the start....
They had in store the 3 15mls in a gift set for £24.99. I got the La Chasse aux Papilons(sp), body lotion and edt for £24.99 they also had the Nuit de Tuberose set same price.
Oh and Juliette...
Hello all. L'Artisan Jour de Fete
I remember a talk by Roja Dove I attended. It was the age of the tree which counted to the quality of the sandalwood oil.
Mysore which is the best(no idea about the political slant???), the...
hello all. cold and frosty so has to be Caron Nuit de Noel extract.
Well about 3 years back a friend added mine up(no doubt to shock me LOL), now they did not take into account vintage so worth more because of that.
Anyway the total was £21,875 at that time.
