Epic is my favorite and was my first experience with Amouage. I may love Gold more, but it is less versatile. I do like Interlude a lot, though.
Tribute is my all-time fave Amouage, but it is...
I never use aftershave. I do agree with you on Dominica Bay Rum, though.
Lampblack or Encre Noire.
Thanks! I hadn't heard anything about this!
So far, the most I've paid is $350..... there are a couple I'd like which are more, but I'm still holding out.
L'Artisan -- 40.
I smelled it last week at Barneys. A very light rose scent. Not bad.
A little more information:
I think the first backup bottle I bought was L'Artisan's Iris Pallida.
I've been on a honey hunt as of late, and got a bottle of Honey Aoud recently. I do like it. My favorite honey scent is Miel de Bois (in both vintage and recent formulations), but Honey Aoud is one...
Cadavre Exquis is very sweet. I'm still getting used to it. It's nice, but probably would work better in colder weather.
Got a text today saying Miyako will be delivered Monday. Requires a...
The Auphorie web site says it's backordered. However, I ordered a bottle earlier today and just got an email saying they have shipped it.
Habit Rouge. I'm not a fan of Heritage, at least in the edp circa 2010.
Compliments are pretty rare for me, too. The most compliments I've gotten have been for Zino, but I wore it exclusively for at least 15 years, so the compliments were stretched out over a long time....
Serge Lutens Mandarine-mandarin and VIlhelm Parfumerie The Oud Affair, each twice. Everything else, once.
Puig also owns Comme des Garçons, which has seemed to work out. Anyways, I'm optimistic.
Aedes de Venustas
L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzing!
Serge Lutens Muscs Koublaï Khän
The L'Artisan candles also kind of look a lot like Byredo candles.
The web page is having a "makeover" and will re-open 4 April.
In the meantime, Now Smell This has a pic!
Serge Lutens Miel de Bois 3X
Vilhelm Parfumerie The Oud Affair 3X
Serge Lutens Chêne 2X
Serge Lutens Miel de Bois 4X
I haven't gotten the emails, but an SA at Barneys said the bottles are all going to be dark colored glass. I'm not sure how else they will be different.
As soon as I got the email I ordered a bottle. It's waiting for me down in my building manager's office.
EDIT: Went down and got it.
Was traveling through Tokyo Narita this week. There were several of the Export Line and Eaux on sale in Duty Free near the Shiseido stuff. This is something new. Pricing was at ¥10,000 for most,...
Eau d'Orange Verte
Tea For Two
Muscs Koublaï Khän
Idole de Lubin
really, anything marine/aquatic
Amber I tend to avoid.
Sadly, fig doesn't work on me at all.
Une Fleur de Cassie.
I paid $350 for Encre Noire eau de parfum, in the crystal Lalique bottle, 60 ml. It originally went for $750.
If you break it down by ml, I paid $280 (it was on sale!) for Amouage Tribute, 12 ml.
No repeats for me, either.
Serge Lutens 9
L'Artisan Parfumeur 2
Comme des Garçons 2
I listed my top ten earlier, but I'll recap my top five: Arabie, Muscs Koublaï Khân, Miel de Bois, Mandarine-Mandarin, Chêne.
Least favorite five: Ambre Sultan, Chypre Rouge (smells like...
You can buy samples online at Luckyscent, Twisted Lily, Parfum1. Surrender to Chance and The Perfumed Court sell samples and sample packs with several from a line. Blue Mercury carries Serge Lutens...
Speaking of Buddhism.... Mandarine's also a perfect scent for New Year's celebrations!! I'll be wearing it again tomorrow!
I just got Mandarine-mandarin this year. It has been my favorite purchase of the year. I really love it.
Fourreau Noir 2X
Fille en Aiguilles 2X
Luxe: Patchouli 2X
Everything else this month only once.
It doesn't exactly out me to sleep, but the only perfume I can wear to bed is Mandragore.
[QUOTE=Sea Roses;3717545]One of my favourite houses.....
The offer is gone now on the site, so had just been up for the day.
I got an email from customer service this morning, saying I hadn't selected a fragrance for the atomizer, which was even more...
I ordered Fille en Aiguilles. I owned three of the four offered with black atomizers and am not a fan of the fourth. So, in the end, I chose Fourreau Noir, even though I just got a bell jar of it. ...
I'm glad it worked out! I'm thinking of getting something myself. I hope by the time I decide the offer is still there!
I don't know where you are located, but currently on the US Serge Lutens site, if you spend over $135, they will give you a free black atomizer! I don't know how long that will last. ...
Annick Goutal Mon Parfum Chéri, par Camille. Plum.
I almost said Rhubarb!
I just recently bought Fourreau Noir and do really love it. Some people are put off by the lavender, which I don't find overpowering at all. Some compare it to Chergui, although I don't find FN as...
I'll have to try Chergui dabbed, as I am really not so nuts about it sprayed.
I love Miel de Bois and Mandarine-Mandarin, and dab both of them. I'm wondering if offending notes some people...
They made me a sample of L'Incendiare when that first came out, but lately they don't seem to make any. Surrender to Chance has samples to buy for all of them (The Perfumed Court seems to only have...
I used to only wear Arabie when weather was very, very cold. So that sort of limited its wearability for me. Recently, I have been wearing it in warmer weather, and have found that it works quite...
I've become particularly obsessive this year, for some reason!
El Attarine was actually my first bell jar purchase! You really don't hear about it quite so much. I'm really glad a lot of people...
OK, hmmm, a top ten Serges? I have 34 of the dang things, you'd think I'd have a list. So here goes:
2. Muscs Koublaï Khän
3. Miel de Bois
Thanks for the info! That's a pretty good bargain, kinda, since the atomizer by itself costs $120.
I am enjoying Fourreau Noir. I've been meaning to get it for a long time.
I found out a couple of days ago that the Barneys here in Chicago has started selling the bell jars. So... rather coincidentally, I bought a bell jar of Fourreau Noir!
Anyway, I have a question:...
Santal Majuscule 2X
Everything else, just the once.
I do love Serge Fleurs d'Oranger. I've been on an orange kick lately (maybe it's the season). Although it's not really an orange blossom scent, I recently got a bottle of Mandarine-Mandarin. It's...
Serge Lutens Mandarine-Mandarin 3X
Serge Lutens Santal Majuscule 2X
Everything else once.
As you can probably figure, Serge Lutens was the house worn most by me this month.
10 Corso Como
Serge Lutens Santal de Mysore
Finishing up Patchouli Week with Serge Lutens Borneo 1834. On my way to work. Happy Thanksgiving, all you Americans.
Changing into Comme des Garçons Luxe: Patchouli as I head over to work. From a sample.
I have a few more patchouli scents than I had thought, so this morning I'm in L'Artisan's Patchouli Patch and tonight, when I go to work, I'll wear another one.
I second Amouage Tribute.
Annick Goutal Eau du Fier.
I was going to wear Noir Patchouli (from a sample) until I read pure caramel's post. LOL. I actually don't mind it. So instead, I'm in Nicolaï Patchouli Intense, also from a sample. It's a bit...
Fruitchouli? Neo-chypre? Whatever. Annick Goutal Mon Parfum Chéri, par Camille. Va va va VOOM!
Today I'm in Etat Libre d'Orange Nombril Immense. To be honest, this is the first time I have ever worn this, although I've had my mini for a bit. I had always heard it was a hippyish patchouli,...
Continuing Patchouli Week. I know it's a masculine, but today I'm in Davidoff Zino, from my days of perfume monogamy. If I ever had a signature scent, this was it.
Good evening. Starting out Patchouli/Powerhouse Week with Frédéric Malle Portrait of a Lady, a rose-patchouli, er, powerhouse!
In The Rocky Horror Picture Show, 4711 is tattooed on Dr. Frank N. Furter's thigh.
OK, well, I'm finishing off Prohibition Week with D.S and Durga HYLNDS Spirit of the Glen -- single malt scotch, specifically, The Glenlivet.
I'm continuing Prohibition Week with Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette, which also fits the unisex Friday synch. I have a 10 ml mini from that ELDO sample set, but will eventually get a full...
I'm continuing Prohibition Week with Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette, which I find perfectly unisex. I have a 10 ml mini from the ELDO sample set, but will eventually get a full bottle one...
I don't think the EDT is discontinued. The Lubin web site still lists it. No one seems to carry it any more, though.
Davidoff Zino -- I don't know how many bottles I've bought over the years.
Hermès Eau d'Orange Verte
L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzongkha
L'Artisan Parfumeur Iris Pallida -- backup...
I'm in Fumerie Turque today as well. Love it.
I started on Sunday, so will continue for two more days. Sorry, I am not quite synchronized.
L'Artisan Parfumeur Fou d'Absinthe.
I'm wearing By Kilian Straight to Heaven, which has a rum note. From a sample.
Whiskey, cigars, mud, leather, peat.... Oh, you man, you!
Today I'm in the original Cumming, from a sample.
I'm joining in today with Smell Bent Hungry Hungry Hippies! -- hash brownies!
I was looking high and low for my sample of Lubin Gin Fizz, but, alas, could not find it. I think I have enough for...
Jeux de Peau

Jeux de Peau
L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Extrême
I'm in Etat Libre d'Orange Rien. Maybe my favorite leather scent. Kinda skanky.
Welcome back!! I've been away a bit myself.
Amber or melon.
Back when I first started trying Serge Lutens fragrances, I hit some pretty bad luck. The first few I tried just did not agree with me. They were all, to me, unbearably sweet and treacly. The...
Today I have a job interview, so am wearing Chêne. Needed something a bit more understated.
I voted for Rien, but Knife Ten is a close second and I wear Dzing! more than both of them.
I'm continuing today with Jeux de Peau. I wore this in the summer and it smelled almost entirely of licorice. Now in colder weather it is more like burnt toast (or, more correctly, bread toasted...
Today, I'm wearing Mandarine-Mandarin.
Several years ago I got a decant of this, tried and immediately dismissed it. My only notes at the time were that it was sort of indolic and didn't last...
LOL. I've picked up a lot this year from discounters.
I've got 31 (just counted) in my wardrobe. Double yikes. Today I'm in Muscs Koublaï Khän.
Today, Bois et Fruits.
I've never smelled it although I would like to. I never see it anywhere to try it and don't feel like making a blind buy.
I'm kind of late to the party, but am wearing Vétiver Oriental today.
Not sure when you started this, but, coincidentally, I wore Cuir Mauresque on Sunday and El Attarine on Monday.
Arabie is, perhaps, my favorite of the line. I do not think it is feminine at all, and is suitable for both sexes.
