Dior Midnight Poison
Studies have shown that nearly 20% of the population has minor to severe reactions to synthetically derived aroma chemicals (my husband and I included). I was amazed to find that the average woman...
Selling decants is the kind of thing you do to support your habit, I doubt it's a path to riches.
Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte
...gotten my husband into it. Tobacco Vanille and Ambre Narguile are pricier than my stuff!
Not everything in the world has to be Walmart or Amazon.com, sheesh!
I doubt that selling hand-decanted fragrance is ever going to be a business plan that attracts hyper-efficient Wharton grads.
Vitamin D softgels (important because Vitamin D is oil soluble.)
In the years since I've been taking these, I've only had one cold and it lasted 2 days. Prior to that I would get a few every...
HA!!! I wish you worked in my office.
I'm open to the idea that an aquatic could be good, but for me it seems that the Calone note takes over the whole fragrance and strangles all the other notes. The smell itself is OK but I'm not...
I was scanning this list of companies supporting SOPA with the intent of withdrawing support from these companies in any...
Very exciting! I suppose they have to say 'update' in case half of the ingredients are now banned.
It's normal to tape the lid of a decant - TPC does it most of the time, and when I'm doing a swap I usually do it.
Out of 50 or so samples I had one that leaked out, they replaced it right away....
For the record, they did get back to me to day and offer to replace the item.
I may just keep my EDT, because my time is also worth money. It's not a tragedy. I had been on the fence about a FB of Midnight Poison, and they have it for 69.99. I then got the Black Friday...
They sent me an EDT instead of the EDP I ordered. Answered my first e-mail on Saturday saying they would check stock to do an exchange, but haven't heard back since then. The website says you have...
OH NO. I'm so sorry!
It will be interesting to see how long Fracas lasts on shoes.
Zeolite crystals from the pet store are great for removing odors.
I can't wait to try this, it sounds awesome.
My husband asked for Tobacco Vanille.
I ordered a set of Dior minis for my sister and EL minis for my mom. They've both been saying they want to find a new perfume.
Le Parfum de Thérèse
Is that flowered bottle Laura Ashley No. 1? That's worth a lot! Wish I would find something like that!
"I'm Audrey Horne and I get what I want!"
I do think that sometimes when you encounter an unfamiliar smell, your brain might take a shortcut and just identify it as the closest thing that you've smelled before. Then if you keep experiencing...
Well, there is to some degree a carelessness with language going on. Some people are a little fixated on the word "fecal" and you'll see certain users say that word over and over again about any...
I love some of their products but I can never figure out what this company is trying to do. If you like it, buy it however you can because they'll probably discontinue it in about 15 minutes.
I'm kind of interested in that Ferrè too, will be interested to hear what you think of it.
Bond releases "Occupy Wall Street" and sues protestors for using their brand name.
I'm big on patchouli. Also, incense, pine, lavender. I don't really like lavender mixed with anything though.
I agree with this completely. I believe it is established that there is a genetic component to hating cilantro, but you'd have to look it up. To me, cilantro tastes like soap but I have been able to...
Anyhoo :vrolijk_1: ...Bulgari Rose Essentielle. There aren't a lot of reviews or threads for this one on BN. I find it the direct opposite of what TS called it - something like schoolmarmish. I am...
They say be careful what you wish for...:)
I do think there is such an ad, but I can't remember at the moment.
I'm sure that is superior, but honestly there's nothing wrong with reading books or becoming interested in their subjects...:)
Turin's writings are the direct cause of me being interested in perfume as opposed to just smells in general.
I've never once heard anyone say that they value Turin/Sanchez's opinion more than...
BP Men. I so don't get it. Of course, the way it is described, it would need to be absolutely life-altering. I wonder if people wouldn't be easier on it if it weren't such a let-down. I would give it...
Mauboussin by Mauboussin - vanilla, plum, patchouli
L'Occitane Notre Flore Iris, if you can find it: warm Iris with tonka and green notes.
Estee Lauder Pleasures Bloom - rose-violet
oops double post
Guess for women, 1990. http://www.perfumemart.com/assets/images/products/Guess-for-Women-163.jpg
Laura Ashley No. 1
In my lifetime, there has always been perfumes for adolescents, Love's Baby Soft has been around for a while...I'm not exactly young anymore :)
Prior to the era of "Charlie" or "Enjoli" (she can...
I think it relates to women's status in society but in an inverse relationship. The closer women are to achieving full equality, the more the little-girl, helpless infantilizing stuff sells. Because...
Most perfumes that say they contain Iris/Orris are talking about the root, which is a smell similar to that of violets, and used interchangably with violet in fragrances. There is one Iris perfume...
What offends me about that Marc Jacob bottle is how easily it would get knocked over.
I'm surprised people are saying its so recognizable. I wish I traveled in circles where it was recognizable. I would have said that if someone was enough of a perfumista to recognize Mitsouko then...
Every once in a while I'll sample something and it seems so different from the description and reviews that I wonder if something is wrong with my nose. Recently:
Tom Ford Violet Blonde - I don't...
Check out their new line of just-add-water snacks: Aoudles of Noud'les
That is hilarious!
I've ordered a bunch of stuff from them, and I've only had one leak so far. Same bottle size as yours which leaked, wonder if there's an issue with those particular bottles?
It's also used in manufacturing methamphetamine, or so I learned from "Breaking Bad".
I guess that's why on the show, the barrel has a bee on it. The more you know!
This sounds fantastic, and I think I have a coupon or promotion of some sort in my pile of mail.
I'm sure Thomas Kinkade "painter of light" can afford to use the finest oils and canvases.
Shalimar. If only I could take out the note I don't like, I'd be left with something wonderful: bergamot, citrus, vanilla, darkness...
Chanel No. 5, just as well though, my husband's mother's...
I think I learned a valuable lesson here. I'm crazy about AE, I think it is magical. Something that is almost, but not quite, something you love could be as apt to annoy as it is to delight.
I didn't even realize Black Orchid was a female-marketed scent. The other day I was shopping in the PX at a military base and it was a) in the men's section b) sold out.
Well, if you always wanted to pay a lot more money for a watered-down version of AE with little sillage and tenacity, this would be the thing to get.
I'm pretty disappointed. My recommendation is...
It was interesting to see that authors of The Little Book of Perfumes said they liked the reformulation.
Does anyone know how the longevity is on these?
It's not wrong, the problem is the context.
In the context of a review, I'm not sure how it makes sense to rate some unspecified vintage and disparage unsniffed what is available in the here and...
I understand that there are variations in batches, etc, and that a lot of perfumes have been reformulated.
However if a reviewer is going to talk about reformulation, it would be helpful to do...
Why would a reviewer assert that a fragrance has been reformulated while admitting they have never sampled the "current" version? The reviewer presents no basis for the belief that the fragrance is...
I did this as a blind buy and it was a home run. I love it.
I think the EDP is usually recommended over the EDT.
Eons ago when I used to work in a restaurant there was always "that guy" who was indignant that wines cost more in the restaurant. As if paying for a restaurant bar, staff, storage and a liquor...
I would try to get a sample - this is really different from anything modern.
Now that you mention it, the term 'unisex' is pretty crap. It sounds neutered, functional and banal. I don't think of smells as having a gender, and I don't have any traditional feminine straight...
Voyage d'Hermès. So disappointing because I absolutely loved it while it lasted. It seems to disappear almost instantly, sprayed on clothing I get maybe 15 minutes and a little bit of an afterglow....
It would be nice if this graduated to being an actual mobile app, anyone know if this is in the works?
I wonder if fragrance-phobia isn't due to become considered a fussy older person's thing soon. Calone/nothingness fragrances started out in the 90's, so hasn't a generation passed by now?
People who are offended by The Guide: are you also offended by writers like Pauline Kael or Dorothy Parker?
Pantene has a conditioner with silicone - ultra smooth or something like that.
Coincidence, I had this on my wish list and took the plunge yesterday with the remnants of my hurricane cash (people from more hurricane-savvy states told me to take out some cash in preparation.)
Estee Lauder's Sensuous Noir. Anyone who likes Midnight Poison should try it.
OK I agree that would be an example of rudeness.
I feel bad for them - I can often tell that they don't feel like approaching you so frequently but they are under orders that every customer must...
If someone came to my job and expected me to know what I'm talking about? That would be a normal day for me and for most people.
I don't advocate being rude, not sure who does.
Is anyone really confused about the fact that perfume reviews are opinions? What else would they be?
It is maddening that they interrupt your enjoyment to ask if you need help, then when you ask them something they don't know or can't find it.
How is that even effective to interrupt someone who...
Cocaine is often cut with plain asprin, aka salicylic acid. Salicylates are a common perfume ingredient, so makes sense to me.
He's clearly partial to Calice Becker.
Well, I still don't agree with one star for Midnight Poison, but after acquiring a decant I think I'm starting to see his point. The longevity and development is not what it should be. A patchouli...
I think God Emperor of Dune was the last in the series, and it's also the best one other than the original Dune.
I heard or read somewhere that the studio asked David Lynch make Dune and part of...
Super legit! check out the online shopping section of this site, they have a section.
I would be first in line to buy <------Audrey Horne. I would envision this as a classic chypre, of course.
The bottle for Thierry Mugler's Womanity sort of reminds me of the cover of "God Emperor...
I liked it while it lasted, probably 15 minutes.
I've rediscovered Poison classic, and now I have the EDT and a .25 oz Esprit de Parfum - whatever that is. It was enough of a steal that I wasn't too worried about its provenance. It is definitely...
I've read on these boards, and tend to agree that we aren't all having the same perception of smells, and some of us may be especially sensitive to civet. It simply can't be the case this perfume...
Clinique Aromatics Elixir.
For any topic or interest X that might attract younger guys, there will be a subset of younger guys on the X forum endlessly asking "which X will make women want me."
Test this theorem and tell me...
Has anyone actually seen this in a store or smelled it?
When I read that article, I layered some Mitsouko and some Aromatics Elixir on a handkerchief just to see what would happen. A day later, they were still duking it out, they never settled down. I...
Tried the non-intense version in Sephora just because of the hype here...it is utterly fantastic. Hopefully will see some of the Intense version when out and about this weekend.
Mitsouko. Anything with warm, sweet notes or iris.
Dior Poison. Realized I still love it.
No 19 Poudre - very cool and green, I wouldn't call it particularly powdery.
Bond No. 9 Madison Square Park - I love this, but the price offends me for something that smells like peach ring candies.
Donna Karan Chaos
This guy FruitDiet has written some of the most entertaining reviews I have ever read. The Angel and Giorgio reviews are outstanding. I only wish there were more. Maybe there should be some kind of...
