    Re: Coco Noir

    I concur with David and others who have described this scent as disappointing. I tried it today on the back of my right hand. My experience? A splash of grapefruit as it went on, then one hell of...

    Re: Vintage Yearnings

    Hehehe, what a great post - thank you! I'm working round-the-clock tonight doing computer nerd things, and this one made me laugh out loud and forget my misery. I think I saw myself in some of your...

    I'm late to this thread but thought I'd post anyway.

    I received a dud bottle of Rive Gauche EDT from this company and had to open a credit card charge back to get my money back.

    Still waiting...

    Re: Vintage Fahrenheit question

    If you're talking about The Fragrance Factory in Walla Walla (ie. www.thefragrancefactory.com), DO NOT purchase from them.

    I ordered a bottle of vintage Rive Gauche EDT from them several weeks ago...

    Re: Innacurate Sprays

    I don't often have this issue but a male sales assistant who was demonstrating "Donna Karan Chaos" for me did today. He pointed the bottle at my arm, gave a manly spray, then screamed, "Aaaahhh!" as...
  7. Re: Where have all of the rich, warm, manly scents gone?

    Hope you don't mind a girl commenting on this topic. My husband has a moderate-sized fragrance collection, featuring quite a few classics, and my favourite scent of his is indeed of the "rich, warm,...

    At the risk of sounding like a Ditto-head:

    +1 Nina Ricci 'Nina' (new version in the pretty pink & silver toffee-apple bottle)

    Damn, fragranceman88, you're making me hungry (it's lunch-time here in Oz). Another 'fume that smells kinda like warm apple pie to me is YSL Cinema EDP - have you tried it?

  12. Re: Looking for a fragrance for no more than $80

    If you ignore the silly bottle and packaging, I think a man could easily get away with wearing Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely.

    I mentioned this one because I noticed you have Musk Ravaguer in your...

    Today I'm wearing the only celebrity scent I've found worthy of claiming so far, Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely. Its gently floral, musky skin-scent (similar to Narciso Rodriguez for Her EDP but in...

    Re: SOTD Saturday 19 November 2011

    Wow, I can't believe Chanel No 19 EDP is not distributed in the USA yet it's in all the major department stores here in tiny Oz. What's up with that? Thanks for the suggestion Twolf, will have to...
  15. Re: Can you help me "round out" my Christmas wishlist?

    It's a rainy spring day here in Australia and I'm avidly sniffing one of my latest acquisitions: Chanel No 19 (EDT). After several years of collecting perfumes, I've just started noticing green...
  18. Re: sophisticated high quality floral fruity scent

    Now that you're including non-niche, I can agree that the original Badgley Mischka is an excellent fruity floral - for some reason, it always reminds me of brandy fruits and custard. :-)
