    Re: Going upmarket from Sunflowers

    Carnal Flower is on my to-test list already :) I'll look into the Goutal one though, thanks!

    Re: Going upmarket from Sunflowers

    OK, Sunset Flowers I've found in the BN directory but there's no Gold Flowers listed, you didn't mean Pure Gold did you?

    Re: Going upmarket from Sunflowers

    Hednic, no, neither, I'll look into them!

    Cacio - hmm, will have a poke around. If anything it's Sunflowers I preferred for the "wet" feel it has, that sort of after-a-storm freshness. I tend to...

    Going upmarket from Sunflowers

    When I was a teen in the 1990s I used to adore Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers, and likewise Pleasures by Estee Lauder. Now that aquatic-fresh isn't the big new trend any more and I know a bit about...

    Re: How long have you been collecting?

    It's come and gone all my life really, as a kid I used to love sniffing them, then I discovered Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs in my twenties, then had a few years off and now I'm educating myself about...

    Re: Which Lush did I try?

    Based on the name, Weather Turning might well be one I'd have tried... I'll have to go back and re-sniff. Hopefully i'll get it from a squirt on paper since I don't fancy wasting another day smelling...

    Which Lush did I try?

    So I tested a Lush fragrance a while ago which went through the most astonishingly varied development on my arm - I recall phases of impressively strong burnt tyres, vegetable bouillon, the exact...

    Re: Smell after a Monsoon rain fragrance

    Ooh, I'm taking notes here - I tripped across a celebrity fragrance the other day with a wonderful concept (the name was Storm Flower) but a truly dreadful execution (Herbal Essences shampoo, to the...
  13. Re: Help picking notes out of Opium Pour Homme?

    Hmm. Interesting suggestion. I did enjoy the later stages of it, though it had a little in common with the original Opium and its knack for giving me headaches (I wish I could wear it since it hasn't...

  15. Help picking notes out of Opium Pour Homme?

    OK, so I love my orientals, but I'm not yet that good at picking out notes I like or dislike from any scent. Having tested Opium Pour Homme today I really want to figure out what was in it that made...

    Re: Gucci Oud - New 2014 Fragrance

    Hah, only if my relatives come through with the Christmas money! It's torture being a scent lover on a budget. And scentsamples haven't got it either, probably because Selfridges have sold out :(

    Re: Gucci Oud - New 2014 Fragrance

    I'm not a highly-trained nose, I'll admit, and definitely not a fragrance snob - plus I'm a devoted rose lover and girly-man so this is the kind of unisex I enjoy. That said, this scent stopped me in...

    Is there a way I can delete spam comments from my blog myself, rather than having to ask an admin?

    OK, so my profile says I have a blog here... with 0 posts in it. I can see the blog, with 0 posts in it. I'd like to make posts in it, but can't see any way to do so. Does this get unlocked when I've...

  26. Re: Help someone with no perfume vocabulary?

    $125 is still a heck of a lot for me... free samples might be a possible, at least in the hope of trying it out. I might have to ring Harrods to get some though as my local John Lewis doesn't sell...
