Why yes I do!
A friend sent me a box of what she called ‘perfume samples’ that she found in a box in a closet when she moved into a new house. What arrived wasn't the tiny sample vials I expected, but over a...
Carnel Flower because stumbling around in the dark, it's what I grabbed.... and that set the tone for the entire day!
Happy Birthday turquoisewater and Daniel
People with genetic anomsia can taste food as well as those with a total sense of smell. Some are even super tasters (picking out specific ingredients)-- they however, many can't ID a fragrance and...
Coco just because (Happy Birthday TwoRoads!)
Midnight Poison, Black Orchid or Shalimar.
An older woman I knew (who passed in 2009) met her hubby when he was serving in Vietnam. He came back with a suitcase full of Shalimar and it was his...
Adding my "Yay!" for Coco and No. 5.
If you like DIY stuff, the Texas Honey Company has a bunch of recipes.
I literally just finished making my own (not their recipe but...
Do you mind listing your favorite FO dupes and who has what? There are several different ones out there and it's nice to hear from another nose who makes the best version of what. That...
I too burn candles in the evening, when the house is musty from being closed up all day.
Save on Scents sight is tricky and hard to follow---the first size they list is pound, but then they sell it the FO's by the ounce etc.
And an ounce can last a long time and is a...
What they all said.... plus, there is fragrance in everything these days from lotion, to drier sheets, to hair gel. If she is that sensitive to scent, she shouldn't leave the house.
That's why I prefer to use ethanol.
I'm doing the same dilution, though I'm mixing it in 240 ml batches of fuel to 5ml +/- of FO which is one 'fill' for my lamp. I used isopropyl, then I mixed with with grain alcohol (ethanol) now I...
I have my scents divided physically between warm to hot weather and cool to cold weather.
Then mentally divided into catagories of "daytime, nightime, good mood, bitchy, REALLY bitch, need a break,...
People will understand why you aren't traveling in this weather. There are lots of things you can do that help (Flowers, cards, calls, letters...heck, even a blog post)... we just went through...
White Shoulders! (1945) I have that peachy pink box that was my grandmothers and I use it for buttons. ~sigh~
It's all of those... It's that scent that reminds you of the gardenias in the back yard where you doze relax....when you have to go into work and deal with barbarian hordes....so it can act as a bit...
I've bought several frags based on the input of others...but they were people who already liked 5 out of my 6 favorite fragrances and had smilar tastes (in books, movies etc). So far, I haven't had...
It's like wearing your hair in a color you hate or ugly shoes because they're in style. God bless Ebay--- sell it.
Midnight Pomegranate-- because I was wearing red and felt rounder than usual.
Today it was Shalimar and the person KNEW it was Shalimar. Most predictable have been Chanel No.5, Paloma Picasso (always gets a compliment) and Mont Blanc Individuelle.
I can't think of anything (smell wise) I can associate with old lady, but then again, I can't smell much to start with......
However, I love antiques, keepsakes and heirlooms. I'm drawn to what...
Thank you! It's a very nice place here and I'm learning a lot. :)
Working in the nursing home, every little lady seemed to have a box of White Shoulders dusting powder on her side table (granted, those are the true 'old ladies' and can wear anything they please).
I wore this upmteen years ago in the 80's (yes, I'm old...)
In my quest for olfactory enlightenment, I've discovered this site as well as others that are wonderful sources of information....for...
