  1. Re: Any experience with ordering from CGherbals

    Given that people are seeking feedback, I wanted to share my own negative experience with this line in the hopes that others will take note or proceed with caution. Here is a chronological summary of...

    LOL! This is exactly what I thought when I saw the image...it is indeed very suggestive (and hilarious).

    Dear Justin Bieber:

    Please go away. That is all.
  4. Re: Article: Dior launch 22 minute promo to celebrate creation of J'Adore

    These videos are aesthetically pretty but not informatively substantive, especially given the lack of English subtitles in the longer video. Frankly, even if my French were better, I doubt that I...

    I really like the annotated style of reporting here—you not only recount the thoughtful questions and illuminating answers but also describe the contextual nuances of the interaction (e.g., head...

    One of the best things that might come from this incessant and arbitrary infringement on artistic expression is that more and more of us perfume connoisseurs will become amateur artisan perfumers...
  7. Re: Article: New UK company, Olfactik, set up to supply the independent perfumer

    First, what do you mean when you say that you are "new to THIS INTEREST?" I want to make sure I interpret your message correctly.

    Second, my list of suppliers exceeds 30. I am happy to offer an...
  8. Re: Article: Prends Moi Slimming Perfume has a waiting list in the UK

    Oh my, oh me! This company has finally done it...it found the cure for over-eating. Please send me some of this magical elixir so that I can guzzle it down by the gallon. What's that you say? ...
  9. Re: Article: New UK company, Olfactik, set up to supply the independent perfumer

    Please do not dismiss the FACTUAL portion of my comment as if I were expressing a mere opinion (i.e., "Contrary to what 'mnaonbn' THINKS"). It was not just what I THINK. It was based on YEARS of...

  11. Re: Article: New UK company, Olfactik, set up to supply the independent perfumer

    Cool, but there are (and have been for years now) numerous other online retailers that offer the same type of direct-to-consumer perfume supplies and raw materials (including naturals, synthetics,...

    Thank you for this informative and enjoyable article. I for one very much like "a little boringly 'retro' or barbershop-like" perfumes. They are simple and thus elegant yet comforting, all of which...
  13. Re: Article: Selena Gomez asks fans to pick notes for her debut fragrance

    Well, it looks like I was largely correct: Per Fragrantica.com (as of today, Apr. 12, 2012), Gomez’s fragrance is composed as follows:

    Top notes: raspberry, orange, peach, pineapple
    Heart:...

  17. Re: Article: Coty and Madonna unveil visuals for Truth or Dare scent, and announce pre-sale at Macy'

    This is hi-freakin-larious...just awesome. Thanks, new friend. :smiley:
  18. Re: Article: Coty and Madonna unveil visuals for Truth or Dare scent, and announce pre-sale at Macy'

    Touché. I should have said English accent, or perhaps more accurately, English dialect. Britain is not just England. How could I forget, especially given my obsession with the great Scottish chef...
  19. Re: Article: Coty and Madonna unveil visuals for Truth or Dare scent, and announce pre-sale at Macy'

    Aw, there, there. Don't say never...if you try hard enough, and want it bad enough, and you believe in yourself, then maybe, just maybe, you too will one day, perhaps in the distant future, be able...

    I hope that this piece of trash ice princess rots in hell. To use her own fake British-accented words, I "absolutely loath" her.

    Hi-freakin-larious!
  22. Re: Article: Selena Gomez asks fans to pick notes for her debut fragrance

    What else can I say except that your uncritical attitude is precisely the kind of apathy that I addressed above. Your (or my) personal opinions about Gomez are irrelevant in this context (i.e., on...
  23. Re: Article: Viktor & Rolf's Spicebomb set for explosive launch next year

    Hi-freakin-larious...because it's true! I wish I would have thought of this clever remark. Oh well, maybe next time.
  24. Re: Article: Selena Gomez asks fans to pick notes for her debut fragrance

    And thank you too, jooxi, for properly reading my reply as "passioned," which is exactly what it was. Let me tell you, if a celeb frag happened to be "some unintentional gem," I would be all too...
  25. Re: Article: Selena Gomez asks fans to pick notes for her debut fragrance

    Very well said. Thank you for offering this valuable and enlightening perspective.
  26. Re: Article: Selena Gomez asks fans to pick notes for her debut fragrance

    Bad art DOES prevent good art from being made, and NO, there is not enough room for both. If the market continues to be flooded (pun intended) with crap perfumes that are not only pumped out on the...
  27. I see...So, to hell with having a creative vision...

    I see...So, to hell with having a creative vision and thus meaningful purpose for the perfume, right? This is PURELY a commercial venture and thus by definition is void of heart, soul, depth, and...
  28. Re: Article: Coty snaps up Madonna for fragrance deal. Truth or Dare to launch in 2012

    I can't speak for others, but I'm hostile toward this B*TCH mostly because of her ugly display of snobbery and ungratefulness toward one of her fans who presented her with a cut hydrangea. If Madge...

    Madge, here's some TRUTH for you to consider, if you DARE: You are a washed-up ungrateful plastic skank, and nobody wants to buy your perfume. Besides, it reads like an uninspired floriental that's...

    NO! The SCA is NOT a new threat.

    I am a paralegal, and I have just glanced at the proposed legislation for the SCA, including its "Definitions" section (sec. 611). Based on my reading thereof,...

    Re: Skincare for men - The best products?

    I VERY much like Clarins--given my vast experimentation with so many brands and lines, I'm surprised how long it took me to discover Clarins, but I'm glad I finally did because I think they're...
