    ah, but it's not so bad to have that long-sleeved blouse on for the first wearing, hang it back up, and then pull it out a couple of weeks later and have that waft of scent travel to your nose. I...

    Re: What me bathe?

    Got one near here also. They obligingly show you the loofas with dead skin to show you what a good job they are doing. EWWWWWW! I'd probably give a bigger tip if they didn't do that!!! (just a...

  8. Re: when Basenotes causes you to buy something impulsively . . .

    piece of cake, furrypine, message me directly for a few "tutoring" pointers for buying in eBay--it where I do most of my buying!
  9. Re: when Basenotes causes you to buy something impulsively . . .

    Thanks, Mumsy, but I bought another bottle after that and it was fine. Sweet of you to offer!
  10. Re: when Basenotes causes you to buy something impulsively . . .

    Thanks, mumsy. I made the mistake of buying a darkened bottle of Mystere--it tattles of too much light and too much exposure to air. But yes, my bottle of Chypre is a beautiful greenish tint and...

    Re: Room Spray as Cologne

    I am guilty of the same. I spray my clothes, not my skin. But I ADORE Aisquith & Somerset's Ginger & Lime and when I go to Williamsburg, Claire Burke's classic signature scent (rose & clove, which...

  19. Re: when Basenotes causes you to buy something impulsively . . .

    Thanks, 30 Roses, I'll try that. Knit at Nite, I'll confess to some trepidations about this purchase--the bottle is what--60 years old?). I have bought quite a few vintage bottles, but I like your...
  20. when Basenotes causes you to buy something impulsively . . .

    Chypre by Coty. An original bottle I found on eBay. As soon as I opened the package, even before I opened the bubble wrap, I was enveloped by this incredible mossy/woodsy (sandalwood?)/rose scent;...
  21. Re: When a frag takes hold and just won't let you go

    Mystere by Rochas. I was working at the Smithsonian at the time (long halls, many doorways) in the early 80s and kept catching whiffs of the most enchanting fragrance. I would literally sniff my...

    Re: What "mens" fragrances do you wear?

    I love this thread because there are a few "gentleman's" colognes that I adore--most notably Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet--I was actually shocked to see that it was marketed as a man's cologne. I...
  29. Re: Hi, I'm not new to fragrances but definitely new to the language of fragrances.

    I don't consider myself a floral person, as I have always been a bit of a tomboy and outdoorsy, and also work with wildlife, and hence love woods--woody scents, ferny, mossy stuff. But for dressier...

    Thank you all for the warm welcome, and I am fascinated by what I have found? I do have to ask, how did you all learn to discern and describe the various scents in the perfumes you wear? I have a...

    Wow, since I'm new to the site and just found about this, I'm still a hopeful. But I love New Orleans and I love Bourbon French Parfums.
  33. Hi, I'm not new to fragrances but definitely new to the language of fragrances.

    I love perfumes, and I guess I got my love of the classics from my mom and my grandmom. My mother's favs were Chanel No. 5 and White Shoulders. Mine are Mystere by Rochas, Chamade by Guerlain, and...
