Herba Fresca Aqua Allegoria (Guerlain)
This is like a breath of refreshing, cool air!
Have you tried any of the Divine scents
by Breton perfumeur Yann Vasnier?
L'Homme de Coeur and l'Homme Sage are
both terrific IMO.
Now I am retired, Monday is actually my favourite day!
All the family back at work and the house to myself.
I have chosen Fragonard Fleur d'Oranger as my SOTD.
Thanks for the link, Gandhajala!
Will wait for a spare half-hour to concentrate on this.
Actually, having just seen it, make that a couple of hours -
and even then I suspect it is beyond my...
Eau de Rochas body lotion and edt.
Sunshine and a few light showers which the gardens
Have a great weekend!
The Sanctuary Classic edt for a day in the garden.
My son has an interview for a new job this afternoon and
I am crossing my fingers (and everything else) that he will
Sorry I didn't read the question fully!
Maybe Opoponax Imperial by Les Nereides or Eau de Rochas.
Iris Rose by E. Coudray.
Enjoy your day everyone!
Just adding my congratulations on your 100,000 posts, Hednic!
You are a legend and a fountain of knowledge. Here's to
the next 100,000.
Eau Sauvage, Dior Homme, Terre d'Hermes.
More sunshine - yay!
My SOTD is Seville a l'Aube.
A somewhat "left of field" suggestion - Eden by Cacharel.
You could also try Ivoire de Balmain (my God-daughter loves this one.)
Bonjour mes amis!
Wearing Rive Gauche by YSL.
Happy Birthday rynegne!
Kiliwia and ErinK - thinking of you both.
My SOTD has been Eau de Rochas.
Shalimar has had many reincarnations!
I like the Shalimar Light version best.
Also give Pacifica Mediterranean Fig a sniff -
lots of sandalwood in the base and very nice top notes too.
I'd say the EDP as well, for the same reasons as above.
It really is an awesome scent and one of my favourites.
Firstly welcome rednblondecurls33!
Do you want suggestions for perfumes or oils or
Vanilla and sandalwood occur in a huge amount of scents
so it would be hard to recommend just a few for...
Another cinnamon fan here!
I love it in food (goes well with apples, rice pudding)
and I love it in fragrances too. Cinnabar comes to mind first.
I also adjust my perfume choice according to the seasons.
Spring makes me crave green chypres and certain floral notes -
hyacinth, lily of the valley and narcissus mainly.
Lovely to have you on board.
For me it is Ivoire de Balmain or "Y" by YSL that capture
that special smell of Spring.
It used to be Un Jardin Clos by Diptyque that I turned to but I can't find it anymore! (I think they...
Ivoire de Balmain.
Congratulations Kiliwia on your posting milestone!
Jon, I have to agree those bottles are tackiness personified.
I am having a gentle morning wearing Jour de Fete, reading the Sunday
Many of the larger companies use automation to blend,
bottle and label their perfumes (e.g. Ajmal in Dubai )
but I would imagine many niche perfumers can't afford the cost
of that and don't even...
I hope your evening goes well, Ineespenes!
Just be yourself and try not to worry.
My Sotd is Le Parfum de Therese.
We have sun so far this morning and a light wind.
Keep safe in the tornado zones!
My SOTD has been SL Fleur d'Oranger.
The heat of today has made it bloom.
Well I can't believe we are having warm, sunny weather
here in dear old Blighty whilst the rest of you are suffering
cold, snow and general dreariness! Usually it is us who are
moaning about the...
I am enjoying another day in Donna Karan Gold.
Beautiful, sunny weather here so far.
My vote goes to Rosamund Pike.
She has class and beauty.
Sorry double post!
SOTD is Donna Karan Gold.
Hope you all enjoy your Easter Sunday.
After a breakfast of Hot Cross Buns and a
roast chicken dinner (cooked by me)
I am going to the garden centre with...
I agree with CapriDog - when I am really feeling ill then no perfume
is the way to go, whereas a low mood calls for an uplifting scent (orange
blossom works for me.)
Happy Easter to all who celebrate!
New life is happening all around us in the
garden and I am wearing Un Jour se Leve by
How about Melograno from Santa Maria Novella.
It smells of tart pomegranate to me.
In synch with Not a Perfume by Juliette Has a Gun.
Ambroxan (Cetalox) pure and simple.
I am wearing Not A Perfume by Juliette Has a Gun.
This outfit has a strange name to start with and their scents
are somewhat "out there" too.
This is Ambroxan (Cetalox) pure and simple and not...
Wow, haven't we come a long way since those days!
EMK that is sad news about Joni (I am a big fan
of her music.) I hope she pulls through.
My SOTD is the succulent, smooth Le Parfum de Therese.
Alien Liqueur de Parfum.
Lovely, sunny morning here so I am off for
a walk into town.
Welcome on board Lorena!
We are a friendly lot so don't be afraid to ask questions
or seek advice.
Do post us your Scent of the Day on the Female Fragrance Discussion Board.
I am surrounded by a cloud of Seville a l'Aube
(thank you Teardrop!)
This is such a beautiful,
soft, laid-back fragrance with the signature inventiveness
that Duchafour always...
I enjoyed reading the article, Justin Case.
Rather an odd way to end, however, with the
Avon Lady calling!
Fascinating insight into what other cultures feel
about smells. I have heard that even...
Midnight Oud - Juliette Has a Gun.
Hope you are enjoying your birthday in Milan, Foustie.
Be sure to let us know how it all went.
I am wearing Lolita Lempicka Morsure d'Amour and
have a rehearsal all afternoon followed by a...
Dior Homme is certainly worn by a lot of women as well as men.
It just smells great - whatever you gender.
If you feel comfortable wearing it then that's fine, if not then try
My thoughts exactly!
Cinema for me this morning.
Enjoy your respective days.
Thank you for all your welcomes and nice comments.
I have used Basenotes such a lot over the years and am pleased to
be able to give something back and help Grant out.
Nice idea Kaern - it...
I have really enjoyed reading all of these later reviews by Luca Turin.
Thank you so much for the link.
His way with words is truly amazing - I wish he'd write a novel (or has he
Being somewhat top-heavy myself, I think I will stay
with the original MeM! I quite enjoy those top notes.
Yes, welcome to all lurking POLers.
I too was wondering what was going on at POL and thought
it most inconsiderate of Mr. Dame not to give us some kind of
explanation as to what was going on....
Good luck with that assignment, Teardrop!
I am wearing Rive Gauche again.
Another day, another outing for Rive Gauche.
Welcome to Basenotes O+S.
Looking forward to reading more of your posts.
You are a tease - I for one am dying to know what you
wear to provoke this reaction!
Robin-in-FL, is there a huge...
Hi Mrs. Rose and welcome to Basenotes.
Nice to have you on board. I am sorry there was a
delay getting your post seen - that must have been
frustrating for you.
My perfume taste has definitely evolved over the past ten years,
so I often revisit scents I didn't initially like, only to find I now like them.
I still can't love Chanel No.5 or Aromatics...
My favourite city is Nice.
It is vibrant, enjoys a wonderful climate and has fabulous
restaurants and shops.
Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy Mon No.10, ErinK.
I usually love Duchaufour's offerings but it would be
risky sending me a sample over the pond, due to customs etc.
Your offer is very generous...
Roma (Laura Biagiotti) - it was a revelation to me the first time I
smelled it. I would leave it to a female grandchild I hope to have
one day perhaps.
Welcome to Basenotes!
You will find us a friendly bunch so don't be afraid to ask
Good morning! It's been a lovely, clear morning here for viewing the
eclipse! I used a colander as they had run out of those special glasses locally-
amazing phenomenon to see the earth become dark...
Thank you for posting this. I am going to be in Venice in July
so will try and find this perfumers.
Noir Epices - too strong and masculine for my taste!
Vetiver Extraordinaire (I don't like vetivert as a note.)
I hope you are all enjoying your day so far.
It is a misty, moisty morning here in Shropshire
and I have gone for Rive Gauche as my SOTD.
I am taking a group of seniors out for...
I have been out and about today and only remembered to put some
scent on when I went for a doctor's appointment this afternoon (I seem
to be developing osteoarthritis, like many...
Samsara is a bold,sexy sandalwood and ylang ylang creation. It is not
that subtle but gets the message across quite quickly!
Mitsouko,by contrast, is a mysterious, peachy, spicy, oakmossy...
O.K it's St. Patrick's Day and time to get my green on!
I have Bugari Omnia Green Jade or a very small sample of
Vent Vert. I think it's time to crack open the VV!
Enjoy the "craic" and Guiness,...
Wishing Dora a very Happy Birthday!
It's a ROMA kind of day.
What a way to start off - Shalimar is indeed one of the greats.
I was lucky enough to own one of the 1970's version in the blue delft canister
and now have only the new...
Omnia by Bulgari in the fiddly miniature
bottle. So hard to get into that contraption but
worth it for the juice! Why, oh why did they let this
gem go? Who makes these decisions??
Happy Birthday ExtremeK!
My SOTD is Eau de Rochas.
The Samsara was probably on special offer!!
Ineespenes - what will be will be my lovely!
Maybe he's playing hard to get.
My SOTE is Ferre de Ferre in the big, chunky bottle.
I don't think Jo Malone is widely know in France or Switzerland.
Bear in mind, also, that this is the same husband who bought me
Cinnabar instead of Cinema (at least he bought me something!)
Try not to worry Ineespenes! I am sure he had a good
reason not to be able to see you.
My SOTD is Bulgari Omnia.
Jo Malone do a set of five travel size perfumes for £68.
I have just purchased on for a friend. Try the Jo Malone
The original Omnia by Bulgari is one of my favourite scents.
Why they discontinued it is beyond me! It is becoming increasingly
hard to find so I would suggest you don't get hooked on it like I am...
O.K. so I have been quite a little spendthrift this month already!
A 40ml bottle of Joop le Bain, a sample of Myrto di Panarea (Acqua di Parma),
a miniature bottle of Bulgari Omnia and a canister...
Good morning all!
I have just returned from a weekend in Hertfordshire, staying with
my lovely sister. She drove us to visit another sister in Richmond-upon-
Thames on Friday and we had a walk...
I am wearing Cinema (YSL) and enjoying this warm weather.
Joop le Bain. 40ml.
Sample of Mirto de Panarea by Acqua di Parma.
I have ordered a bottle of Joop le Bain, having spent ages tracking
one down that I could afford. I am picking it up this morning and will
wear it as soon as it is in my hands.
Good morning great-smelling ladies and gents!
My SOTD is Flora Nymphea by Guerlain.
Happy Monday to you all!
I have a friend coming over for lunch
and I plan to cook some kind of Thal noodles.
I'll wear Clarins Eau Ressourcante.
Jon, is that a photo from Venice?Where exactly? I am going there
Visa on a cold, winters day! Life just doesn't get better than this....
Good morning everyone!
I am wearing Empreinte by Courreges.
Seconding the Idylle edt suggestion and adding
Welcome to Basenotes by the way!
I have a sore throat type virus at the moment (like
a fair proportion of the population!) and need
a pick-me-up, so I thought I'd try Issey Miyake A Scent.
The verbena note in this is quite...
Based on the notes you say your girlfriend likes (lily, vanilla and lemon) I
would suggest one of the Dali's (Laguna or Laguna Maravilla) or Chanel Allure
edp. L de Lubin also.
Good news about your brother, Ineespenes!
Having just baked my first batch of Welshcakes ever,
(easier than i thought it was going to be!) I am enjoying one
of the more mis-shapen ones with...
We have some welcome sunshine here this morning!
i am wearing Fragonard's Fleur d'Oranger and thinking of Nice.
We have just booked to fly out in May for 10 days.
Hello from me too!
Scottish Dad and English Mum, so
Many Happy Returns to Robin.i.F!
Another day in Feminite du Bois (Shiseido)
Ferre (the Iris one.)
This is very subtle and needs at least six sprays
to be noticeable (or am I becoming less sensitive to it??)
I am going with Teardrop's interpretation of an investment perfume.
I bought Shiseido's Feminite du Bois after discovering Basenotes and
never looked back! It was a revelation to me that a scent...
Jon, I do hope your friend will be ok.
He is lucky to have a friend like you.
I am synching with Shiseido Feminite du Bois.
Also sending love to 30 Roses ( I have PM'd you sweetie.)
I am wearing Mary Quant's Havoc!
Good morning. I am trying to whip up some enthusiasm to go
for a long walk, but the cold and rain are somewhat off-putting!
I have chosen to wear Eau Ressourcante again today,
