Annick Goutal will be opening a boutique soon at 397 Bleeker Street, NYC
Jordan Carlyle Shelter Island today - citrus, white currant and quince. Has a lovely scent but so-so throw. http://www.ownmodern.com/images/jordan_carlyle/51hrIrrwkrL._SY576_CR0,0,400,500_.jpg

If you look at paypal's facebook page, you'll see it's been a problem for other customers and some are a little miffed about it:
I found it amusing...
After getting error messages all day on the Paypal site, I finally called them and explained that I was unable to send my payment. It was explained to me that the ability to use the friends and...
Personally, I wouldn't want to wear or own a fake even if it was a better scent.
I try to keep an open mind as far as dupes, "inspired by" and "like" scents go though. Most are awful, IMHO, ...
"Laranja" by Castelbel Porto to start the day.
Here's some advice I found on Wikipedia:
"Fraud and security concerns
Given the lack of ability to inspect merchandise before purchase, consumers are at higher risk of fraud than face-to-face...
I appreciate your comment. I was just about to order the last bottle left on Parfum1.
My mistake, sorry. The site is registered to an address in Malaysia, but now I see that's a whois "anonymizer" that they used for registration purposes..
Did they ship from Malaysia?
Annick Goutal Noel again tonight. I never seem to get tired of these candles.
I've never even tried Djedi, but I want it anyway. It'd be nice to have a bottle of Doblis too - I used up my decant.
Trying a Jordan Carlyle Barcelona candle today.
Who decanted it?
I think it's a silly concept and nobody will take it seriously. There may a be a little entertainment value to it though.
Bond No 9 New Haarlem on this rainy day.
There is no way to tell whether or not a 6-12% rebate from eBates will be forthcoming when using the best fragrancenet codes because those codes are never listed on eBates. I used to be a big fan...
I used to think that but don't anymore because you can't tell in advance whether the eBates rebate will be forthcoming.
Thank you. I was looking and looking and it was right there all the time. Old age sucks. I need to go shopping to forget about it.
I'm lost. Which of these doesn't have a brick and mortar shop?
Scent Bar and Barneys
EBay seems interested enough if a fragrance house complains to them that they are allowing fakes or even decants being sold there with the house's name on it. Also, considering they are ultimately...
I ordered A Lab on Fire Almost Transparent Blue last night.
Is this new? In July I bought Interlude Woman from them. Retail is $290. With the discounted list price there ($232.19) and the code, I paid them $185.75 through paypal (just double-checked it at...
That's what I do too: I just type "fragrancenet.com code" and tend to find it at RetailMeNot.com.
BTW, I read on another site that Fragrancenet has $25 off $100 and free ship with code FBE25, but...
I completely agree with you about the title change Zatarain.

Thanks to missmarymack on mua for spoting this.
Laughed so hard I started seeing double.
He doesn't need to do anything but it would be nice if he'd consider doing a churchy incense, right after he does Son of Zahd.
They are two sites, each with a different IP address, that are owned and operated by the same folk. They have about 275 websites, all mirror sites of fragrancenet.com with redirects to it. Well, I...
It is very unlikely that wearing the perfect scent will have much bearing on attracting a woman. It is likely that wearing a scent that smells cheap to an individual woman, or just not to her...
The rebate rate for Fragrancenet is usually 6%. When this thread was first started, it was doubled to 12%, but only for a week. The stores with doubled ebates rate are currently only for travel,...
Very cool KBE - who knew?
Costes Signature room scent today. Notes: Patinated wood, rum, mahogany, bitter orange skin, paprika, oakmoss
Yes! Real oak moss and plenty of it!!
I get a lot of tonka with that one. FWIW, my nose has been broken several times though.
It would be interesting to find out what alternatives to banning were considered (for example labeling so that the consumer may make an informed choice to avoid exposure to a particular ingredient)...
There's a difference between selling decants, and selling splits. The former allows both profit and using bottles already in possession of the seller, and the latter allows for neither. Basenotes...
I think the people who bought Zahd unsniffed were brave and very loyal Slumberhouse supporters. I've yet to read one criticism of the scent and the bottle looks perfect for the house. ...
I think this is great advice. Avoid buying Creed and Chanel on eBay - they are often faked. If you aren't in the position to buy a full bottle, it would be much better to buy from a Basenotes...
Carthusia Numero Uno is worth a try.
Rigaud Lilas room spray today
This was in my email inbox this morning. I especially like the bit near the end when the bird mimics the "sound of foresters and their chainsaws".
Has anyone tried these? They are on sale today at MyHabit and I haven't been able to find any reviews anywhere. I did see that they are often on sale though.
It hasn't always been a problem but I can't say for sure when it started.
It seems I can usually figure out a way to work around it but it would be easier if I didn't have to.
I can link to pictures on the internet, and have no problem uploading a picture to post as an attachment. But, after I click the insert image thing and select "From Computer" I'm unable to click...
Smart-ass answer: Carnal Flower
In Victorian times, people thought the scent of tuberose was a sign of impending doom.
Honestly, though, it probably won't make any difference to them what you...
Sparked up a Miller Harris Fleur Oriental candle today.
I think the EU is more likely to be influenced by input from their constituents than by persons from non-EU countries, so it is especially important that EU citizens use their voice if they disagree...
I bought headphones for my son last fall. He wasn't interested in whether they looked good though; fashion and style are very low priorities for him. He uses them every day and they are holding up...

Does it in any way resemble a rotisserie?
I'm warming a Sage Machado Carnelian candle today.
There's a standing code, mua for free shipping on orders over $50, unless they raised the minimum recently.

You're very kind sir! I don't have the original on hand to compare, but based on what's left of my memory, it's pretty close.

I'm warming some generic Clive Christian 1872 for women oil.
Mostly, I think it's laudable that he's put together all the information there and organized it into a spreadsheet. That took some work.
I don't think he's asserting that it has any validity...
I appears that the advice given in this thread was to use tea as a digestive aid, not to effect real weight loss. I read an Amazon review referring to this tea as drinkable Drano, and based on an...
Vikt seems to be in stock at Parfum1.com. They have code now http://www.basenotes.net/threads/374781-Parfum1-20-off-until-2-14-2014 and do some shipping overseas.
The solid Dolce Vita arrived yesterday. It's not very strong but I put a little DV extrait on top of it and the combination was fantastic. I could still smell it when I woke up this morning.
I stand corrected.
Basenotes is very lucky that you are able to contribute again. I've always been struck by the pervasive kindness in your interactions on the forum.
For a 45 year old man, I agree with the recommendations for Miller Harris Le Pamplemousse and Parfums de Nicolai Balle de Match.
Coty Wild Woods is about $10.
Madini Oils Musk Pierre and Ambargris are $15 each.
Christian Lacroix Tumulte pour Homme used to be available at Ross for $15. I think it's probably about...
I spent a good deal of time hiking and birding when I was younger. Now my birding is mostly from my balcony, windows or what I spot when out and about.
Googling led me to this video:
And, there are these websites: http://www.urbanbirder.com.au/recordings...
It's a hooded, sleeveless robe, not pajamas. I doubt it's very functional. If it's so warm that your upper arms can go bare, the hood will eventually make you uncomfortably hot.

I guess we can all see this thread they way we want to, as long as we operate within Stu's rules and what he has stated to be keeping within the spirit of it. IMHO, it is in no way needs-based -...
I warming generic Black Afgano oil again tonight.
I agree with most of what has already been said. Well-written reviews are gold, no matter the "expertise" of the reviewer. I believe people tend to be likely to write about things that have moved...
I scored a Dior Dolce Vita solid perfume compact on eBay this morning.

It's chilly and raining off and on here today - a perfect day to burn a Bond No 9 New Haarlem candle.
My kind of guy! You've obviously done a stellar job raising him.
