Gold for women with Lyric a close second.They are so rich , so classic Gold hits all my buttons being rosy, woody and that glorious frankincense is divine.
Try "Etsy" and serach under vintage perfumes.
Try "Etsy" and put in vintage perfumes.
Very enjoyable, thank-you.
I am a woman and I wear it because I love woody fragrances.
There is Sybaris by Puig .
I have three bottles of extrait, two of E.D.P and they all smell good. The Long Lost Perfumes version is a poor substitute.
ENGLAND EXPECTS !!!!!!!!!!!!. These sound exquisite so please can we have them?
This might be meant to be toungue in cheek but I think it is offensive . WASPs ....is that still used ? So there are fragrances Catholics can't wear or coloured people ? The kennedys were as Preppy...
I agree after wearing it again today and thinking hard about it .
I am seriously in love with Mystere and own two bottles. As it is fairly hard to find and there are some really brilliant fumeheads on here can you suggest substitutes? I put this on the male forum...
I love them all but hate the exclusive bottles ( I love them to look at ) and so can only afford the sample sets. We are not all descended from Russian aristos. so for goodness sake Xerjoff sell it...
Maybe it reminds me of going to mass with a Catholic friend but it smells of Heaven pure and simple. If an angel appeared it would surely smell of Frankincense. Hippy-dippy is Patchouli I think or...
Une Rose, Une Rose and the great Une Rose.
Tears are streaming , thank-you Mona for your beautiful creations rest in peace .
Ah the animated meringue !
I think the Piver is narcissus either way they both nauseate me. I guess we all have something that will do this ?
I was given a bottle of Annick Goutal's "Grand Amour" today .I sprayed it and got very bad nausea from the hyacinth .I wear several with that flower , Chanel 19, Mystere . I once spilt a bottle of...
Cheap Smells .com have it and ship to the U.S . I buy from them and they are trustworthy . The fragrance is reduced so should help with postage . The Royal Mail is not good at this time of year so it...
Ah there is an idea !!
LOL! I have he is not allowed out without a spray of my Vol de Nuit , Memoir , Amber by Three Dials or something else . I might release the 4711 when it's Summer .
You do have such a way with words ..ahem.
Ah having showed no interest on Facebook this sounds promising. A new Malle would interest me.
The attars are beautiful , a little oily of course ( what would you expect?) . The lack of alcohol is good for skin and my favourite Bajah is just fabulous. I can't understand despising Amouage who...
Yes, on and off since 1972.
Oh what a description...faints.
You mean there are men out there who don't wear it ? Seriously It is so much a unisex , I follow my husband around when he wears it. He won't buy it but I have taken him in hand and he's wearing Vol...
I've used up three Bajahs.
Thank-you for that link , I adore Bajah .I'd never have put lime and Frankincense together but it is gorgeous .I also like El-Tayibba and Rose but find then hard to buy in the U.K . I too live in a...
Society extrait by Burberry ( vintage).
Rue Rance Eau de Noblesse.
U.S eBay has a half used extrait at a very reasonable price , postage about $24.00s .
There are at least two on U.K eBay but sadly starting around £100s . I guess that is reasonable when you think of the cost of Amouage etc and if you really love it.
You didn't try Vol de Nuit ? I'm afraid many but especially Mitsouko are a shadow of their former selves .
I just had an apology from Mark that it was a mistake which makes sense as I could just click on Facebook to see the information .
I applied today to this magazine as I do love fragrance forums. I filled in the username , password and agreed to terms. I got an e:mail saying that they were sorry but I didn't meet the crteria for...
Who is giving out these stars ? I go with my nose it sounds like utter snobbery to believe ratings even if God is giving them.
No even if I had the money . I don't think therte could be a more perfect fragrance than Une Rose or Chanel no 22 . So many fragrances seem to be near copies or don't move me I can't imagine all the...
High time Xerjoff sold their fragrances in plain glass bottles. I have the 15ml sample sets and they are so good . I love the ones aimed at men as well as women. I just wish they would concede that...
Korres Ophir Gold.
Yes it's like a powdery Vol de Nuit , very light but lovely.
Can you see the blue sparkle , my bottle arrived today and you can smell the fragrance.
Sorry see post below.
That is my dream too Rick , New York sounds the best of this collection.
Oh dear England is so much more , mind you at the price you would be familiar with Tennis lawns. London smells of pollution and dirt and my daughter says Plane trees so not very interesting.
Mystere by Rochas. It's turned very cold so my fragrance shelves need sorting out .
I found it in another store today and sprayed it on my daughter's face .In the sunlight it looked blue and gold but I'd say lovely .It's probably meant for parties but she was wearing a 1970's dress...
Well mine is on order to arrive Tuesday . I will look at the bottle and my daughter can shimmer , then I get to keep the bottle.
Anyone tried this as I just an online stockist and my hand is itching to press those keys?
I might kill but I'd break at least two limbs
for sure. I have to feel pity for Dimitri. I grow violets and plucking one and sinking my nose into it's dirty little heart is a joy. I don't find the...
I think to be fair they all need lovely Christmas boxes ,maybe only pure perfume but nestled in pure silk velvet in red or green maybe gold . It would be hard to dress my favourite Vol de Nuit for...
This seems an odd question as I know people who wear most of these . There isn't one description that fits any of them. Mitsouko worn by a professional Indian lady who is very cold and distant.Jicky...
I am already 56 but still wear Jicky, Vol de Nuit , Quadrille , Arpege and several others I wore at 17 . I have discovered many more obviously and hope to "pop my clogs" covered in Une Rose which I...
It just arrived , not wishing to sound patronising I pour it into my palm and rub it over my skin. I do not use it as aftershave even though I do shave my legs !!! I wouldn't use it in my bath as it...
I wondered about the Floris Vetyver , if I see it again on eBay I'll buy it . I did manage to find a Carven Vetyver with the wooden top ob U.S eBay and I ordered that as with postage it still only...
Jeez what a "lucky" woman being indoctrinated and all . How about letting her choose a scent by buying her a 100 samples then leaving her alone ?
What on earth is an alpha male ? To me he's the kindest one and he'd wear Une Rose.
H.B and Elixir are very much women's fragrances too , I just placed an order for the massage oil . I wish they did all fragrances in a massage oil as I sometimes get problems with alcohol.
Thank-you both , I think I'll go for the Givenchy .
As my husband just used his last bottle of the gorgeous Carven Vetyver can anyone suggest a replacement ? I tried Creed and liked it , Guerlain and found it wishy -washy . I used to wear Guerlains a...
I agree , even those aimed at men .
Une Rose is the Queen of rose scents.
Yes indeed and I for one would just love to try the result .
Yes indeed and I for one would just love to try the result .
It smells like a kid gathered rose petals and stirred into water playing at making a rose perfume. It's got no sophistication at all but it's so chaep you could try it . Layering might just be the...
If Kate Middleton wasn't married to a royal would anyone care about the poor stick ? I find it hard to believe that she could get any thinner without snapping. I couldn't care less what fragrance she...
I don't get that at all, it's far greener .
Les Senteurs ( Belgravia , London) have this in stock and will also sell a sample for £5.00s .
My 75mls arrived from Harvey Nichols yesterday .It really is green and very beautiful , sharper than any other green I have . The bottle is lovely . I still love Chanel Poudree because it is softer...
Try spraying them on silk handkerchiefs which you tuck into your clothes. I see why you might worry but compared to junk foods , smoking etc I don't think it is a problem. I did get a patch of...
No Mike it isn't ridiculous , the ridiculous bit is the price but Malle makes beauty and you want it that's why we are here.
Johnson's baby powder , or how about some liked by girls your age ?
Is this really a question that needs asking ? The U.S has some really superb fragrance houses , Del Rae , Liz Zorn amongst many. The U.K isn't too famous for fragrance but now Grossmith is back and...
Is that you Henrique ? Angie here and what a great idea that is .I love my 200ml 22 but can't afford that size in them all .
Please don't take this badly but I probably havn't tried it yet . There are so many no longer in production ans so many I havn't been able to afford. If you mean that I have managed to try in my...
Wow what a great list.
La Mome , Barynia , Scherrer 2, Givenchy II , Chanel 22 , Amouage Gold, Amouage Dia.
I agree about Caron , I especially love Violette Precieuse which I have to find on eBay .
I think you should go vintage and not only Guerlain as I appreciate the price. I wonder have you tried Lanvin's Scandal or Coty's L'Origin , Scherrer , Marc Sinan ? I am no great nose so can't say...
Enjoyed your post. My beloved Mitsouko is now something like a candy I can't identify. I can't believe the beauty I discovered at 17 back in 1972 has been so reduced to this .
Cheapies, 4711 ,Verte Violette , Je Reviens, White Linen , Carven Vetyver , Evelyn .
Expensive , Une Rose , Iris poudre, Vol de Nuit , L'Heure Blue , Chanel 22 , Chanel no5 and vintage Lanvin's like...
Une Rose is dirty indeed , but oh so beautiful.
Molyneux's Numero Cinq extrait .It was on eBay so I can't wait for it to arrive.
The obvious answer is to buy Attars , Amouage being the best , Al Haramain and several others. The other answer is to wear body cremes , lotions and Federick Malle have many exquisite ones.
A great reply , thank-you.
Thank-you very much.
No we are very puzzled . I am thinking that the company went out of business before internet days and wasn't so famous anyone remembers it. I will say though it is a very good fragrance.
Thank-you very much to those who answered and especially because so many understood exactly what I meant.
That's what I thought but if it's a fake it's a bad copy but a lovely fragrance ! My daughter tells me Christian Dior would licence out fragrances ?
It came in a bundle of vintage fragrances . It's green and a bit bitter but I love it .
Oh well done Poppy , I am impressed .
Posh Peasant ( U.S) decants are having a 3 day 15% off sale, lots of Guerlains to try not sure hopw many are vintage.
