For very flowery try Carnal Flower, A La Nuit.
One of my most cherish scent memories is the smell of slept in t-shirt of a very special someone. Thank you for the link Q!
Ohhh yes please! I think you might find Dr G joining this party too.
Awww ((Knit)) I hope Papa Knit gets well soon.
No.22 today, aldehydes and incense Chanel style.
I found Bottega Veneta seems to leave a lovely trail of scent and might suit her well.
Swimming in L'heure Bleue tonight. Happy Independence Day to everyone celebrating.
Lovely to see you back ErinK and in Guerlain no less! Smelling wonderful m'dear.
Ohhh mixerscent you smell wonderful.
Congrats on the house Robin.
I'm in the funeral parlour rose and carnation of Belladogia, vintage EdC. :laugh:
A perfect crisp winters day here in Oz. Decided I needed iris so it was Infusion d'Iris EdP for the day. This one makes me think of ErinK (hope everything is right in your world lovely!).
The original Agent Provocateur comes to mind. I think it might be that pink candy musk stick connection. It's not for me but I have a friend that wears and it smells wonderful on her. On the right...
L'eaulita I noticed you have an Aussie flag there. I have a majority of the Exclusifs and if you want to PM me I'm more than happy to send some Sycomore and Rue Cambon your way.
BoyChanel I adore...
Best of luck with the rental Robin, I'll have my fingers crossed for you.
The separate vaycay sounds wonderful ExtremeK, especially the spa bit. :laugh:
Bois des Îles today. Lots of it. Luckily...
I was in Eva Kant which I find a slightly left of center take on gourmand.
Awww, lovely picture Tdem!
ExtremeK is been a mix of work and life that has kept me away. I've booked a little jaunt to Europe in September as a 'reward' for surviving the...
Congratulations to Tdem's Andrew!
MIA recently for all sorts of reasons. Here to report I'm in the ever so green Bel Respiro. Sometimes I smell quite a lovely, almost endearing, bug...
We're twins! I'd be interested in your impressions of Une Fleur de Cassie. For me, it's Ropion's best work.
teardrop your pixie cut sounds adorable. I'm not brave enough to chop my locks so I've been sporting long waves for more than a decade.
Feeling rather floral today. Rose de Nuit...
Yes please! Love No. 5.
I've worn a few on the men's list and tend to lean more towards classics and modern offerings.
Carnal Flower 50ml. I practiced restraint and bought a smaller bottle.
Challenging day, bought perfume, day got much better. That's the power of scent. I also thought it best to guard against Estée acquisition of Malle's with a bottle of Carnal Flower.
Spent the day...
Chamade Pour Homme?
NCal round 11 could it also be Oud Save the Queen?
Chanel Rouge Coco in Madamoiselle
:birthdays: Happy Birthday Asha :birthdays:
Hehe Cestrum isn't the Trussardi flacon is so adorably kitsch? You could stash some whisky in an empty flacon and call it a boozy niche scent.
This one again :smiley:
Happy Friday all. Raising my glass oh, about… now :beer:
Arquiste Fleur de Louis today. A lovely bouquet of iris, rose and jasmine - mostly jasmine
Dior Grege today
- - - Updated - - -
I hope the day is being kind to you. Cuir Mauresque today.
It's June already?!
Preparing the cashmere stash for the upcoming cold weather. I might be lucky and get a full months wear this year. :laugh:
House and note twins with G tonight with Bois des...
Après L'ondée today and yesterday too.
Congratulations on your retirement cazaubon, all the best for your move.
Hi Irina, what an interesting project your are taking on!
Here's mine 'I wish I could bottle that scent' suggestion. There is a pine tree that grows by the river where I live. For a very short...
N Cal what a treat you have lined up for yourself.
I actually enjoy most of the classics in EdC. I find L'heure Bleue is beautiful in EdC and the bath oil.
Apres L'ondee is one of my...
N CAL is Round 11 Millesime Imperial? Apparently the gold flacon is Imperial Millesime and the newer clear flacon is Millesime Imperial.
Robin hope you resolve the house sale soon. As annoying as the hold up is I suspect you are in a much better place regardless.
Mitsouko 1980's EdT over parfum. Tonight I'm semi...
Chanel Coco Shine in Rendez-vous today
Cartier's Les Heures collection are numbered
Hmmm, the only perfumes I didn't sniff before acquiring were the ones gifted to me. I think this might have to be my criteria for choosing tomorrow.
31 Rue Cambon today. I have the sniffles and feeling rather grumpy.:sad:
ExtremeK squeee, a rose endorsement from you means I will have to place a sample order soon. It's a shame...
Going slightly left field and guessing Gypsy Water which has sandalwood as well as bergamot and amber.
Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Imperial
Quarry I so enjoyed reading your post yesterday. I hope you take a small break from gardening and pop in now and then. :kiss:
Kewert that's a great hairstyle, looks effortlessly chic.
Rochas Femme has lovely plummy note.
RMS Promise today
:birthdays: Wishing the dear Q the very best on this most special of days :birthdays: I suspect her absence maybe attributed to her spending much of her time here being honoured here...
Happy Bank Holidays to all those enjoying a day off!
Congrats on the win Cello!
Grey Vetiver today.
Tonight is a few dabs of very vintage Cabochard parfum courtesy of a bottle I spied in...
This morning was Bal de Mai
and this afternoon I switched to Coromandel.
Hello lovely people,
Bel Respiro for a spot of exercise this morning, the water in the river around my way was so clear you could see down to the bed and watch the fish swimming about.
ExtremeK looking forward to reading all about your rose adventures, thank you for inadvertently taking up part of my ultimate 'rose' quest :laugh:.
Congrats to Rosebud!
Nice ComDiva! All thanks should go to Jon I was simply the perfume mule: laugh: .Synching this evening in L’heure Fougueuse bought at Cartier in New York during that same transatlantic jaunt. That...
Awww, Happy Birthday Dr. G! I hope your day, much like yourself, is that perfect combination of naughty and nice ;)
In Cuir de Russie for the occasion.
With the sprayer fitted the flacon is too tall to properly close the lid. I keep all of the ones I'm using out of the box and in a display cabinet. If I'm storing them I will fit the splash cap after...
Woohoo Missylee! It is No.5.
Cestrum m'dear, I suspect once it's solved there will be a collective groan for how obvious it is. Handful is a key clue and a square is a reference to the shape of the flacon. This one is likely the...
Hednic is it Cuir Cuba Intense?
Guessing round 6- Acqua di Parma Colonia?
Ooohhh very pretty Cello. I can understand why it's your most used. I'm in Dior Grege today, more orangey than Bal de Mai.
Maybe try Cartier L'Heure Vertueuse, herbal, stemmy green notes. I adore this one in summer. Grey Vetiver is a soapy vetiver. Another that may work is Carnal Flower, lightly applied the tuberose and...
Still working on the last two and it's not L'Heure Vertueuse III (adore that one btw). It is a French house.
Guessing Italian cypress for round 6. Another hint for mine - the fragrance is iconic.
and this one again.
Not Poeme, nice guess though. Here's a clue: 'handful' is a reference to the fragrance name.
Now back to round 6 - is it Oud Wood?
You could try Sartorial by Penhaligons. It's been described as 'radiant Brut' more expensive than Brut so I'm not sure it meets your criteria.
You smell glorious G. Une Fluer de Cassie for me.
just thought of another...
Inside a square case
count a handful of hours
gold and white flowers
saving hints for later as I'm sure they won't be needed.
Woohoo! N.CAL has it! Sublime by Patou. :2vrolijk_08:
Spritz and run. Cuir de Russie EdT today.
Today I was in this lovely lady
Guerlain Rouge Automatique Bal de Mai
Cestrum is it Tiare Intense by Montale?
It's not Happy but the name of the fragrance would describe a state of happy :)
Going out on a limb and guessing Gucci Pour Homme I?
Not Beige, you were closer with the first guess...
Is number 9 Creed Spice and Wood? Couldn't possibly be that obvious?
Aww Cestrum, hugs are always welcome! As much as enjoy the skank, there are days where JFP BWF are called for.
I’m envying Kewart's trip to Nice. Have a wonderful time!
Gardenia is more a white floral, it doesn't have that indolic quality (sort of a mushroomy note) which might be a very good thing in this case. To my nose it's a blend of white florals than straight...
Maybe decant and store the bottle.
Paul stick to Beige, Gardenia or 1932. I was wearing Beige yesterday and it stays relatively true to the opening throughout. Gardenia is a very popular one here but I need it in the parfum, the EdT...
Centrum is the first haiku Traversee du Bosphore?
and it's not Bel Respiro :) here's another hint - the fragrance name is just one word
Lovely collection teardrop!
Sending more get well wishes PerfumeLady and a extra spritz of No.5 for having to deal with man flu too.
I must check out your suggestion Foustie...
N.Cal Another hint: A feeling descriptor associated with the fragrance hence why 'Joy' is close.
Cestrum is it Violet Blonde?
Try L'occitane for florals around that price.
Joy is *close* but not it, you're on the right track though. :)
Guessing again for round 6 - Green Valley?
I like your wife’s taste! Imperatrice Eugenie reminds me Bal a Versaille so I’m not sure she is familiar with this one. Knowing and Paloma Picasso are big floral chypres along this line she might...
ExtremeK a world where I'm not allowed wear my beloved Cuir de Russie and tux to an opera is not one I can contemplate. Too, too sad - Puccini overwrought dramatics sad. I would sneak a spritz and do...
On me Sartorial, on him Sycomore.
N CAL - is round 6 Eau de Cologne?
I thought of one:
languid rays of sun
spread across silken petals
joyous happy sighs
Hint: the third line is a clue to the name of the fragrance
Zephyr lol, way to scent your man! Fahrenheit is a nostalgic fragrance for me. I have a bottle from the mid 90's and enjoy wearing it myself. Catching a whiff of it on the street on a rare occasion...
Oh you smelled nice Mocha! Wishing you a very :birthdays: happy birthday:birthdays:. I think I remember something about aliens making you buy perfume? Well they sure got it right with Une Fleur de...
Thanks for posting Oviatt. I'll take one of each! I adore Femme, not as happy with in its current form but the pre-reformulated parfum is stunning.
Cuir de Lancôme today unearthed from the back of my perfume cabinet. I've spent part of today tending to the collection, rotating out some bottles for the changing seasons.
Essie polishes have some fun names one I have is 'Size Matters'
Lyric woman is a stunning opulent deep rose. The longevity is stellar on me.
My favourite Malle is Une Fleur de Cassie. It's stunning but may lean on the feminine side of your taste. Dominique Ropion work for this house have been my favourites so far.
Beautiful photo CapriDog.
Ine you smell amazing.
L’heure Fougueuse for me, that divine sweet hay and magnolia just hit the spot.
Very thankful that it’s Friday. A couple...
Your options should all work well for tropical weather. The ones I have found works well for me in hot and humid weather are Chanel Eau de Cologne and Cristelle Eau Verte, L'occitane Eau Captivante,...
I've found Sartorial great quality in terms of composition and performance. The scent is so familiar just done better.
Nice Paul H. I do agree it is a polarising scent as vetiver may not be a note your friends and family would associate with perfume. Each to their own. I adore Sycomore and have a large bottle of it...
Oh good lord, it smells good in here. Why must you all be scattered and far away from me?
Hehe Capridog such wholesome bedtime shenanigans.
Lillybelle your vintage add...
Sartorial is my Phenhal of choice. I remember it being described as radiant Brut.
I won't tell if you decide to add No.2 to your stash :laugh:. I'm also olive skinned but with jet black hair and I've found the palette very versatile. It takes me from the no make-up look to a...
Awww, that's really sweet of you kitsch! I'm in Oz at the moment and not due back to London until autumn. May I take a rain check? I would love to hear your thoughts as I'm on the hunt for a...
kitsch I would love to hear your impressions. I was thinking of getting the Paul Smith Rose for warm weather and would be interested in how the Tromborg compares.
Oh dear, I'm not sure I should 'fess up here as well.
Teardrop I love the Naked Palette series, number 2 is also a lovely set.
I've recently bought Mac Lip Liner in Kiss Me Quick, W3LL People...
Thank you for the recommendations Kiliwia, ExtremeK and Cestrum. I've noted them and will order samples.
Just when I thought it would never come, finally some autumnal weather rolls...
