Guerlain L'instant. Only just discovering this now!
Mon Precieux Nectar
Also working in your favour is the fact that you were thinking of your mom and sweet enough to remember her for Mothers Day.
Sensitive women notice stuff like this. Kudos to you.
I very recently placed an order with STC, and waited two and a half weeks for it to arrive. I thought it wasn't going to make it but thankfully it did.
I have successfully ordered...
Evangeline-- I was there on December 23 and she had the tester and the 75ml. size in stock, funny I almost bought it because I had a feeling it was going be hard to find. Neiman Marcus in Bellevue,...
Iris Ganache can be found at the Guerlain Boutique in Las Vegas.
Try Oriental Flowers if you can find it.
I own this and love it. I find myself reaching for this beautiful scent everyday, although I have much respect for Chanel,
this fragrance is what #19 Poudre wanted to be and it certainly lasts...
OOOOOh! how fun! my turn:
Finally getting a break
A booked, paid for holiday
Hearing my family laughing and enjoying time together
Satisfaction from my new job
Perfume shopping (sampling) in...
UrbanCoyote, what store was it?
Prada Infusion d'Iris Absolue.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
Thymes Wild Angelica today.
Lovely and green.
In Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir L'eau Exquise and loving it.
thank you, thank you, thank you!
I own it and love it. To me it smells very unique and feminine, what a nice gift to receive.
If you like it, wear it!
Yes, Neiman Marcus in Bellevue carries Guerlains.
Going there myself this weekend.
Hey Kalli, I agree with you- more female posters would be great.
Evangeline, The bottle itself is small enough to fit in your hand and it comes with a stopper instead of a spray.
I usually like a spray but with this little stopper, I find it so easy to apply....
Today I'm in Clinique's Aromatic Elixer Perfumer's Reserve.
To my nose, it reminds me of the original AE but just a bit softer,
and it reminds me also of vintage Cabochard in the dry down.
We are from the same neck of the woods but I mostly lurk rather than post.
There is a lot of good info here and some friendly posters, too. Have you checked out all the good places...
Good morning everyone!
I'm in Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Jasminora.
It puts me in a cheerful mood.
Love this new stuff.
Test them on your skin.
Time for a NEW boyfriend!
I sampled this fragrance a few months back. Initially, in the store it smelled nice on paper so I asked for a sample and also put a small spray on my wrist. Big mistake. On me, after a short...
I really like The Perfumed Court.
I have two shelves, on the top one would be:
2. Carnal Flower
3. A la Nuit
4. Sandalo (Etro)
5. Tea for Two
6. L'eau de Circe
7. Cafe Noir
That would be sad if it were true. Let's hope it's just a joke.
(goes to apply body cream and the perfume) I love it - it's in my top 20 and that's saying a lot!
Montale's Highness Jasmine and Serge Luten's A La Nuit are my recommendations.
A little drop will do ya with the Montale though, it's very potent stuff...
I have ordered from Luckyscent several times and have never had a problem receiving my goods with the order taking anywhere from 6 to 8 business days. It definitely sounds as if...
I'm wearing Malle's Carnal Flower on this beautiful Sunday.
Welcome to Basenotes, lisa16! After reading your posts, I would suggest you try Chergui by Serge Lutens. I have seen it available at Sephora. You could also try Jasmin Noir by Bulgari, or what about...
Yes, it's too bad about the postal service in Canada,
I have to look into one of those U.S. mailing addresses.
WOW! How sweet!
Mimi- I own a bottle of that amazing fragrance and wear it regularly. It smells pretty good on this mom of a teenager.
Malle Carnal Flower and Bulgari Jasmine Noir.
I smell incredible!!
Good morning everyone!
I'm wearing Bulgari Jasmine Noir on this rainy (again) Thursday.
We have robins flying all over the place right now still gathering nest making material
while our Ragdoll...
I really like what you have done there, especially the paper.
Hello everyone! I'm wearing Chantecaille Tiare in the pouring rain today.
Thank you Martin.
This explains my A3909Y01.
Last week I purchased a 1 oz. bottle of Creed Himalaya.
Since then I have done some research on this forum and learned that the last two digits of the serial number represent the year it was made....
Hello Sailor Dave,
I suggest Serge Lutens Un Lys or Serge Lutens A la Nuit.
Ooohh, that's a good idea.. I called the Vancouver store and the S.A said they still have stock on most items just that they are not restocking.
Neil4Speed, good to hear you got what you were...
Neil4speed, did they give you any explanation? Maybe they're just playing a cruel joke...
volley2 and jrd4t, thank you.
I really enjoy seeing other people's collections, aswell.
I finally took a photo of my collection.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to post it to this thread.
No, imho they do not smell similar. I own both and to me, Aventus smells strong and fresh whereas
AT smells warm and alluring...
Just my .02
Enjoying Fresh's Brown Sugar today.
I don't know how the notes compare, but if you like Feminine,
you may want to try Jo Malone French Lime Blossom- I get the same sort of vibe from both of these.
I stocked up on DG when...
Happy New Year to one and all!
Wearing Fleurs de Bulgarie from a sample.
Smells lovely and soft...
All of mine are glass.
An incredible combination discovered quite by accident- Penhaligon's Night Scented Stock and Lorenzo Villoresi's Teinte de Neige
Although I cannot speak for other HR's, the one in Vancouver would bother with you. I know the s.a. in the
mens fragrance dept. and she is one of the friendliest, patient s.a.'s I know. I speak from...
It would only be a waste of the s.a.'s time if you didn't buy something.
I think it is important to sample a fragrance before you buy it,
so spray on skin or a blotter in the store, however,...
They're both lovely -- get both!!!
Yes. Nordstrom's flagship store in Seattle, Washington carries them. Some in a smaller size - 100 ml. I think. I saw them
there last weekend.
The s.a. said they were the only store in the U.S....
Clinique Wrappings seams to be harder and harder to find these days.
I was shopping in Seattle this past weekend and discovered a Wrappings gift set
at Macy's downtown. When I asked the s.a., he...
I can send you a sample if you like.
Wow, thanx Cheryl. I'll have to go and check that out.
I could send you a sample if you like. PM me.
I have just come back from a trip to London and Paris. My perfume shopping experiences there
were both exciting and disappointing. Liberty is the most amazing store I have ever shopped in- such a...
Hi there! Happy Saturday
I store all my fragrances in
a wine cooler at approx. 50 degrees F.
Hope this helps.
When I first started to wear CDG Carnation, my husband said it smelled like Christmas.
His mom would always have fresh flowers at Christmas time and always carnations in the arrangements.
Thanks Limony! I'll check those ones out as well - I like PDN too.
I will be in London and Paris (4 days each) in a week from now. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this.
In London: Harrods, Liberty, SMN, Geo F., Ormond, Fortnums, Les...
Welcome to Basenotes.
Mine are kept in a controlled temp. wine cooler and that works very well for me. To keep the inside dark,
I have placed black paper on the outside of the glass so light will...
Check out Lush's Grass showergel. I have it's not bad. CB I hate Perfume also makes a Grass accord
worth checking out, maybe a sample first to see if you like it.
Floris Santal in honour of Mick Jagger 's birthday.
All the time! In Hawaii last year, I found Kate Spade Beauty and all the Nandebarrys Bronze Pink and Green.
Ava Luxe Moroccan Mint Tea. Very minty indeed.
Penhaligon's LOTV. Happy Monday!!
I'm in L'Artisan Tea for Two again today.
Happy Sunday to all!
Tea for Two for me today.
Bond#9 Scent of Peace. Pouring here in Vancouver.
L'Occitane Bergamot Tea.
Have a nice weekend, everyone!
All nine of these fragrances by MDCI are noteworthy. However,
Peche Cardinal is the one I could live without. "too fruity".
IB is quite addicting to me, smells like a very expensive man.
SL Un Lys on this beautiful spring day. Have a nice weekend everyone!
Clean Lather .
Scent of Peace #9
I'm not happy with it, in that I don't see the search feature anymore.
Maybe I'll have to look more closely...
Yes, I have enjoyed New Haarlem but I appreciate
Ava Luxe Cafe Noir more because to my nose, the coffee
New Haarlem for me is much easier to get, however.
Love and Light,
Sampled it yesterday- not special.
Nanadebary Bronze for me today. Gearing up for the Olympics here and hoping
our Canadian athletes get gold.
Mitsouko, sadly. It smells heavenly on others but
like a urinal cake on me!
Bain de Soleil orange tanning gel from the 70's smelled heavenly and the only scents that come close are JM French Lime Blossom and DG Feminine.
Algemarin bright blue bubblebath has a rosemary...
Mick Jagger's closet!!!
It looks like Naz is now carrying the Penhaligons line. I'm so excited to
explore more of these fragrances!
Borneo 1834 and Chergui. I smell amazing, but now I'm broke.:p
CDG Carnation. It's yummy.
Alicka, I own both of those fragrances. If you want an absolutely stunning fragrance where people stop you on the street and demand to know what the name is, where they can buy it and then a story...
Lavanila Vanilla Spice. This is as mall line of fragrances that contain mostly natural ingredients.
I own Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit and I get a lot of compliments on it from younger (20...
ADP Colonia Intensa for me again today, it's all I seem to wear. When will i wear all the other 40 or so choices? -- maybe tomorrow...:p
Great thread. I'm enjoying reading all the responses. I have recently discovered ADP Colonia Intensa
and have purchased a full bottle of it--it's the only fragrance I have worn the past couple of...
Welcome. Have you tried Bond, yet 007?
Love and Light
I wear it because Keith Richards does:p
I feel your pain, Surfacing. Sometimes a trip across the line can help
if you go far enough.
