    Re: Lush

    I've ordered two samples of Lush fragrances, Weather Turning and Dirty. Upon first smelling them, the mint note is immediately apparent, so much so that for about the first sixty seconds, the pair...
  5. Re: Creed Virgin Island Water or Millesime Imperial

    VIW is the clear winner for me. Projects just a bit more and lasts a whole lot longer than MI. It doesn't help that I thoroughly dislike MI in and of itself.

    I'm not necessarily a collector in that I purchase every scent a house has made, but I do have a relatively large wardrobe (not by Basenotes standards, but larger than any of my classmates) that I...

    Re: What Causes the "Crushed Ant" Smell?

    I know exactly what you're talking about. It's very much a "chemical" scent, not like many others. I have found Burberry Weekend for Men to smell quite similar to this very topic.
  8. Re: Name your Holy Grail. Have you found it yet?

    Proud owner of Creed's Original Vetiver. Haven't found anything that might surpass it yet, though I shall venture on in search of one better.
  9. Re: Do you have any 5 star fragrances with really poor longevity?

    From my collection of sample vials, I would say Virgin Island Water, though I haven't had the opportunity to test it from an actual sprayer. I also find Le Labo's Rose 31 to have poor projection and...

    1. Mediterranee
    2. Sur le Nil

    Unfortunately, I have not been able to find la Mousson to test it out. I'll most likely be purchasing Med once spring comes around, though.
