SOTE is Tabac Rouge by Phaedon
Good suggestion Dariushka!
Along with many great houses you can access through the link above, there are other treasures too!
Kat and Stella have beautiful silk ties from Lamia that are in...
Wearing Golden Chypre by Grossmith today.
Very dangerous this perfume......as at a (deservedly) higher price......but as I take it to work, there is always the temptation to spray more throughout...
Congratulations and wishing you every success!

Hello Mr Hednic, great to hear from you, yes to both.....think Kumquat has suggested some fine ideas, and yes remember our marathon Q & A sessions very well! They were such fun times! Never did get...
Grossmith do a three set collection of their black label......not cheap......but exquisite perfumes. 10 ml each of Floral veil, Amelia, and the most beautiful Golden Chypre.
Thank you again Kumquat......that sounds like the winner!
Am not familiar with Jean Nate ....but will find it.
HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA........and happen to be favourites!
Eeek, not nice Mr Smelly Scientist.
My family is fairly considerate and put coffee(which they then burn) in alfoil in little clay pots, but it makes for a fairly restrictive area to move in!
Oh trust me ......i have learnt that the hard way (somehow I can't find the icons, but put a big smile here)
Thank you Kumquat! Didn't even think of that! And it's one I really like!
That's beautiful.....thank you Kumquat!
Are there any notes bees are not attracted to?
With Easter approaching, I will be attending Easter Sunday lunch in my late grandfathers vineyards.
The not so great aspect is there are bee...
It's lovely to be back after a bit of a bumpy year!
Today I wore Ex Idolo 33.....this perfume intrigues me so much! A beautiful composition.
The SOTE is Shem el Nessim
Hope you have all been well!
Today wore Jardins de Kerylos by PG. This has always been more than just a *fig* scent to me.....it captures the gardens and essence of this beautiful...
But Pierre Guillaume is my stand out!
Lutens/Kern/Tauer/Flechier/Ropion/Villoresi/Polge/Giocebetti and about another dozen close behind him!
Edit to add the man who made Ex...
It does actually deadidol, thank you very much! Yes she did start out making the scents herself and is still VERY hands on. Am sure Andy Tauer makes everything.....because when I need a bottle of a...
Bit confused here........is Andy Tauer and Sonoma Scent Studio really considered *indie*?
Would the same be said of Vero Kern? If she is considered *indie* then god help us.....she doesn't make...
When you buy the same perfume three times because you forgot you own it.
same here with NoOud.
Must say I have changed my mind on my favourites.
Voyance now smells of peanuts (on me) for a while, but it is beautiful!
But my favourites are...
Having tried all the Baruti I think Spyros has created some amazing perfumes. These extraits are very different from magnetic scents, and perhaps could be described as the boldness of Nasomotto but...
Un Crime Exotique (which is very difficult to get now)
and Untitled number 2 by Magnetic Scents (the company now called Baruti) but the perfumer made this scent because of his love of Chai tea. ...
Sending everyone best wishes at this time of year.
Chicagoista my many condolences on your loss.
Happy birthday Chronia polla. It is my name day (equivalent to birthday...
Informative to say the least:shocked:
Robin thank you for this informative post.........just how prevalent is this in the US?
In our family we have a doctor (daddys cousin) who runs one of your major *state* hospitals .....starting...
((Twolf)) didn't understand why people were sending you hugs.
Quarry , as ever your post brought it home sweet one!
If a country (and especially a wealthy one) does not care for it's...
Interesting choices for Christmas watching. For me I get to celebrate on the 6th January.....but on Christmas day I usually watch *Enemy at the Gate* despite the attempt to distort a lot of the truth...
Wearing Querelle, Pierre Guillaumes tribute to the Fassbinder adaption of the play Querelle de brest by Jean Genet.
This fragrance with it's carraway, myrrh, and cinnamon opening is a striking...
Thank you lpp,
can't send photographs in pm's either
Think there has been a lot of requests for Iris Silver Mist......but you never know which way this will go.
The four you mention Wit are all stunning.
There are now 6 overlaps between The...
Happy anniversary Kalli and thanks for the nice words kind people. Lots of lovely fragrance today!
Still reeling a bit from the Boris Becker news and will have to make countless apologies for my...
Can anybody help me - my avatars are very small and yet previously met the requirements?
(((((30Roses))))) thank you so very much..........after a horrible two years, it was a real moment of happiness for us.
with hugs and prayers
Oh (((E)))) as ever you are always so classy and kind!
Finally my engagement ring was finished and I was all yipppeee, Paris was lovely, Bath was gorgeous and then I got all these messages and...
drowning myself in De profundis today at the news that Nole has appointed Boris Becker as his head coach.
Has the world really gone this mad? All I can put it down to is somebody...
Interesting state of mind you are in SereneGreen. With me i really need diversity of interests. There are always periods when i find a drought of good film, music and art. When i find myself feeling...
Sorry in getting back to you sunflower77 regarding the bottles that was what interested me and apparently some collectors of Annick Goutal did prefer the uniformity. Interesting as i like my perfume...
Or perhaps better still passionate and kind perfume makers who give us exquisite scents that push the boundaries and broaden our minds.
Modern man= perfect skin, guy liner, and a wardrobe of wonderful and varied fragrances.
A beautiful library helps as well.
Some photos from the Annick Goutal boutique.
There will be no more coloured bottles as you will see in the below photos. The exceptions are the round bottles which they can engrave your name on...
((Dani)) currently in Paris and mild panic setting in about how i will be able to pack new companions for my collection.
Travelled to Paris with five fragrances ........not sure if that means I...
yes I wear my lutens, malles, and especially my Pierre Guillaume perfumes all the time.......the same with Guerlain, KM, Jo Malone, Chanel, Caron, Jovoy and the rest of my...
Did you actually read the whole thread?
Sorry Redneck Perfumisto........since *the guide* annoyed me so very much.......I doubt very much I would follow (even if I had the time) a grumpy old man writing snark on twitter.
Don't wish the man any ill will and hope he is well. And understand he has a large cult following,(so no doubt this will not go down well here) but matching fragrances with one liners you could...
Wow......and nobody mentioned Pierre Guillaume!
You do have some wonderful scents Scentapede! Smelt the Balmain on a co-worker and had to ask him what is was.........didn't tell him it was *luscious* but certainly thought so! Well done you!
Lovely collection Scentapede.........and great dresser.
Your Balmain is lovely.......did you acquire it recently?

What a stunning backyard you have hedonist222!

Can beautiful bottles be an answer Pollux:wink:
Just beautiful elizrj.......love the mirrors ....very dreamy.
Thank you so much for sharing
ps the boxes look really lovely ...where did you get them from....very classy!
Would love to take it as I don't know much about it. When I started working there were various tests that took hours to get through......but at the end I was exhausted. But I got the job!
Wow Mr Danieq sounds as lovely as (((Danieq))).......what a wonderful thing to say and do!
Many happy returns to him! Chronia Polla (many happy years)
What did you choose to wear as your...
thinking of 30Roses and Mr Teardrop ...........and a speedy recovery.
Today am wearing Repetto as I too am wondering when our lovely Evangeline will return!
Thank you all...
Thank you so much Wingie.....the centre bottle is one of thirty limited editions of Fille De Berlin. The etching of glass of the fractured rose and the platinum lining is just beautiful.
(((Xscent))) for your kind words........the bonsai is 18 years old!!!!!!!!!
Hi Graphite..........thank you for your nice words. Yes I have Monsieur the new black one. It has eight woods (5% of...
That really made me laugh! Wonderful response!
Thank you so much.....(((Cello))) they are full sizes. (((Danieq))) some of my bell jars and the other bottles have initials engraved on them. Some of my bell jars have one or two of my first names...
Thank you so much Blue_Eyez and cello. Just looking, can't work out how I will get the PG collection out of my dressing room and display it properly!!!!!
But this is from my dressing room. The...
Hope you all had a lovely Sunday!
Thoughts for Mr Teardrop for a full recovery.
SOTD Cardinal by Heeley
These are the serge rectangle bottles. Will try and think how to put up my Pierre Guillaume collections.
Hi again Xscent......understand completely.
As for vintage and discontinued.......my journey ended some time time ago. After what is too me a lot of money my search for *farouche* has failed...
Stick around baby......we'll sort that out!
Hope you and everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
Thank you (((Xscent)))......IMO Pierre don't photograph that well.......he's actually more stunning than that.
But better (including his fabulous genius in fragrance) is his kindness, humble...
Am currently a bit confused about what back ups I have...........trying to get my fragrances sorted into some sort of order. Am not happy with the current set up as it is not tidy enough.
Think it might be trouble for many of us!
The Rossamunda is actually not that expensive and a sample would not be very much. The oud and saffron are really supporting acts in this...
Oh please keep this thread going! Roses, Roses, Roses!!!!!!!!!!!!
((Danieq)) hope you enjoy the PG Rose.......my one complaint about the PG line is that he does not make enough florals. He needs...
it was me who suggested Magnetic Scent untitled Number 1 .......... Sypros Drosopoulos put so much work into that scent. He very kindly had let me smell some of the precusors to this...
Thank you Hedonist! Wise words indeed
Wow some gorgeous scents here........looks like it has been a good month everyone......enjoy and let us know your thoughts if you have time!
Andy Tauer - Une Rose de Kandaher .... a sample from a gorgeous observer of basenotes......just beautiful.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend
Me neither!!!!!! Besides being so incredibly talented, with humour and intelligence, Pierre is just gorgeous, and boy does he smell good!
That's actually interesting, I don't mind tobacco in my fragrance (two years ago I probably would have run for the door at the thought, but I am much more experimental these days thank goodness).
Thank you all so very much for your kind words about my collection. It really means a lot to me. Especially at this time
As soon as I get some time I would love to show you parts of my...
tried this today and your description is excellent!
The only thing I wondered was if you detected the tobacco note.........which oddly I detected after about the hour...where I...
Teardrop you are a darling.
Thank you so much for bringing this thread to my attention.
Had posted a part of my Serge Lutens collection in the male section, and will post here and my reasons...
Now that is good! You know rembetiko???????
Hash will have to be a strong ingredient.......forget the hay notes........hash will be the only bottom note with patchouli!
Rubegon and anyone interested I posted this bottle of FdB in collections, but perhaps it is more relevant here.
My fiancé really struggles with Rose de Nuit and like myself loves *the rose scent*...
Scentfan thank you for including Drama Nuui and Magnetic Scent number 1 ........I am so looking forward to what you think!
Found all the replies very thoughtful and interesting.
Myself, I don't know ...I grew up around people who always used scent and come from a place where smell and flowers were an everyday part of...
The fractured rose limited edition of FdB by Serge Lutens........the number 30 was special for me and impressed my fiancee managed to get this for me.
yes it was and I will post it soon as you might like it.........he really put a lot of thought into it!
many hugs from a feeling guilty
teardrop just put up the...
Klimax, can you get to Europe easily. You need to get yourself to a spa with Valmont, Thalgo and Cinq a mondes for proper exfoliation and use one of the soft moisturising self tanners.
My poor fiancee....he got the wrong message...he thought he had to fast on Sunday (which I do) and yesterday. Last night he came to give me a lovely gift and I reminded him that today he can only...
thank you all very much. Scentologist will look forward very much to when you have time to write about your thoughts.
other than the Turin one?
How will these restrictions impact on small perfumeries where there is an abundance of jasmine?
Personally I have a strange relationship with Jasmine as I am often surrounded with it. It's very hard for me to get the correct scent to what I know as Jasmine in the morning and night blooming...
No I would not say Tonka is his signature. He certainly uses it in his works...........but he uses so much and tries to create very different scents each time. Brûlée de Rose for example...
It's fabulous stuff........if you get the chance to try anything else please do.
Love FM and SL..........but Pierre Guillaume is a level above. He's so fanatical and passionate about what he...
Suspect I strongly belong in this group.
Pierre is my favourite perfumer ever ..........he is to perfume what Nole is to tennis, .....just magical! Started young, hard working, not the...
The connection was once my mother had assured me that her and my father would secure George Michael as my future *husband* I felt incredibly happy that I was going to be dancing and...
Thank you so much Hednic, Evangeline, Hedonist222, taint it sweet, aphexacid (aphexacid this is how I deal with losing the Davis cup) and Xscent.
Kiliwia your SOTD sounds just beautiful!
wishing you a both a wonderful time!
Happy third anniversary to a beautiful couple in every way. We will miss you, but forget us and enjoy every moment!
