    Re: Vintage Bal a Versailles Parfum

    I just loved reading this, and I am so glad you are enjoying it: vintage BaV parfum is one of my favorites too. It took me a while to get past all of the hype about it and just try it, but it is...
  88. Re: Paper or cardboard smell in vintage Coriandre

    Hi Gilturko-

    I don't think I have ever specifically thought of a "cardboard-paper-dusty" note in vintage Coriandre, but I can see how you might; however, I do link it to the smell of coriander....

    Re: Your vintage SOTD

    I blame Christopher Brosius...and an overactive imagination.

    Earlyn and N.Cal--are you getting garbage...or dead mice...or rotten melon (I think that's what you find in Diorella, Cook.bot) mixed...

    Re: Lellabelle's Spirit Bear Perfumes

    The subjectivity of smell, proven once again. I found Amore to be mostly jasmine and frankincense, and I was greedily asking for an even bigger floral presence.

    I am so eager to hear Lellabelle's...

  92. Re: What vintage fragrances are you sampling right now?

    Just received a wonderful package of unusual vintage samples from Earlyn, my fellow explorer in the forgotten fields of obscure vintage perfumes...with dates of original launch:

    Re: Your philosophy: smell like, or smell

    Smell, definitely.

    Such an intriguing question! I don’t think I’ve assessed my perfume preferences in such a simple way before.
  95. Re: Vintage geek opinions about bottle age and sweet spot, please.

    A lot of great suggestions here. I just wanted to add that the formulation also influences my decision making. I am nearly always shopping for feminine vintages, and I will choose the extrait over...
  96. Re: Vintage geek opinions about bottle age and sweet spot, please.

    Hi Earlyn-

    This is a great question, and my simple answer is: I don’t avoid any bottle due to its old age.

    My “sweet spot” is to buy bottles that are as old as possible as long as the perfume...

    Re: Lellabelle's Spirit Bear Perfumes

    Hello!

    I’ve been testing the remaining samples off and on without having the time to really focus on them. Put on a bit, wander off into my day, and then realize that I haven’t sniffed or taken...

    Re: Lellabelle's Spirit Bear Perfumes

    Labdanum or labda-not, that is the question...(sorry!)

    Interesting to think about this point. I also enjoy greener chypres in which labdanum is absent or light, but I also enjoy compositions that...

    Re: Vintage Coty Perfumes, Reconsidered

    Oh, believe me, I also like the use of vanillin in classic Guerlains—a beautiful, essential component in Shalimar, LHB, Vol de Nuit. I am just speculating on why/how L’Origan and LHB feel like they...
