Frederic Malle, Portrait of a Lady
Poisson for Poison :D
Also, I aboslutely cannot pronounce AprŤs L'Ondeť - and I had three years of French!
I don't wear fragrance at the hospital, even if I go places where there are no patients. And I find that when I'm in "the wild" all fragrances looses their powers to the lovely scents of nature.
SotD is L'Artisan Parfumeurs Tea for Two. It puts me in a nice christmas-y mood, smells like soap, smoky tea and candles.
I love the edp myself, its so fresh and green without the harshness of the edt. But you should definetely try them out both Fleurine! Maybe also the Poudre if you find all the green-ness...
I love that Guerlain is a perfume house so much more than Chanel. Even though I rarely wear Guerlain fragrances, that is the house I must choose.
Thanks so much! Still a way better selection than here. :D
Visiting Prague this autumn, and I am, as always, curious for niche perfume boutiques.
Do any of you know about such places in this lovely city? I know they have Marrionauds and Sephora, but doubt...
I'm really looking forward to this. Hope I can find a way of watching. :D
(If anyone would torrent this, it would be great!)
Today I'm wearing Louanges Profanes from Parfumerie Generale, with a little spray of Guerlains Chamade. The start of a great-smelling week! :D
My recent order from FragranceX came reasonably quick. The fragrance was heavily bubble wrapped in a big box, and the best: it went straight though customs! :laugh:
I am still a bit hesitant to...
Not everywhere though. Here in Norway for example Chanel retails for maybe 50% more than in our Duty Frees.
If you check your country's prices and the Duty Free shop's prices on beforehand (many...
Great thank you!
Too bad with Tauer, it would have been great to buy something Swizz when I first was there. Its a while 'til I'm going there, but it looks like I have to save up.
I don't speak German or French, so it's kind of hard to google. What are the big perfume stores in Geneva? I'm looking for Tauer (hopefully), Parfumerie Generale and the more common brands, Diptyque,...
China Glaze Ingrid
We have both China Glaze and Essie here in Norway, and I believe they have both in Sweden and Denmark too. So we do have them in north of Europe at least. :)
Well I don't know. It seems like we have a Dutch ip-adress, even though we are in Norway, and that might be the problem.
Anyone from the Netherlands having issues with ebay?
Has something changed here? We bought decanting supplies from ebay as late as last week, but now I cant go into any perfume related ebay sites due to the Paris law. :(
I have a Lush solid and some Crazylibellule and the Poppies scents. They are really nice to bring with you.
The Estee Lauders are really pretty little jewels.
I think you can find old Avon...
A green and fresh fig scent, that fills our small bedroom even when not lit...
Same price for that one in Norway. A lot cheaper on duty free and such.
Buy yourself a nice atomizer.
I tought chanel pure p had spray, the testers does?
Oh yes, these look like somtething directed towards "the crowd". Who wants something fashionable and designed, not "old fashioned". I've seen some ugly guerlain bottles of this kind before - with...
I agree! Even though 30 ml are usually much more expensive per ml, I tend yo buy them.
I feel I can buy more smaller size fragrances than 100 ml, because I'll never use up all of it anyway. I only...
I believe someone has asked about this berfore.
I put on perfume as a part of my morning routine. I seldom reapply, but I might put on something else in the evening or fill my arms with...
Today I recieved Sa Majeste la Rose by Serge Lutens :D (And aalmost bought Guerlains Herba Fresca)
C Rose that's such a great idea! And made with low cost materials most people have lying around anyway. It looks lovely, and makes it so easy to find what you're looking for.
Samples we don't have...
How old is she?
Harajuku Lovers are really pretty bottles, my younger sister (10 yrs) loves her "Music".
I agree on Tauer! I love his Incense Rose and Reverie au Jardin.
He has some very nice teaser and discovery sets available in his webshop.
None of her scents are in the database.
Perle di Bianca (2008/9) - Notes are: Neroli, Iris, Jasmine, Blackberry, Amber, Musk and Myrrh
Trama (2010) - Some notes are: Damask Rose, rose thorns,...
Serge Lutens for me too! A la nuit.
Jasmine! I wish the flowers were this frangrant in real life.
We store samples in ammunition boxes like this, or in small metal boxes for bringing with us.
All our fragrances are stored in a IKEA bestŚ bookshelf with doors in our "living room". They are...
Today I sampled Etat Libre D'Orange - Je Suis un Homme.
My opinion? Boring smoke withouth depth.
I find it very feminine and sweet, a typical deep floriental fragrance. I have only tested it on paper, though :(
But I'd guess you have to test it yourself to find out if it is something you, as...
It was released in 2008 and is still on sale.
Parfumerie Generale PG 16. This was my first niche, and the most expencive perfume I've ever bought. The scent makes me really happy, and remind me of summer and home. And the store I bought it in...
Frederic Malle, Etat Libre d'Orange, Juliette Has a Gun, Tauer, Lez Nez and probably several other nice houses have samples for sale (cheap!) on their website. I've bought from severeal of them and...
Something like this
only in a more safe environment
But seriously. Why do you want to know this?
I've found that arabian perfume oils can last for days, even with just a drop. Diesel's Fuel For life also lasts too long, and without changing...
Tubereuse Indiana is great.
Because Creed is boring. Expencive boring. And Creed is NOT english perfumery.
However, i dont get why he loves BP, it smells like cheap shampoo.
Right now i would rather wear the prŤmiere. But I would like to own the parfum (not edp :s) some time.
The edp is not an "original" btw, its from the 80s.
That scent is discontinued, as it only was a part of the CDG clothing-line for H&M some years ago.
Liberty's has a good selection of CDG scents, though.
My guess is GBH's Wings too.
Luckily for you it is not very expensive, so even if the formula is different the loss is not that big if she mislikes it.
Good luck. I hope your wife will be...
Boyfriend foud this on youtube yesterday.
Vid. from University of Alaska.
Skin; neck, elbow-pit, sometimes in the hair. Not on fabric because of stains, the only exeption if it is is a very short lived scent.
Does anyone know about stores in UK/London that sells small (preferably glass) atomizers? I really don't need a bulk-package and would like some warious sizes without thinking about shipping, customs...
Work today, so I put on Narciso Rodriguez edt to feel feminine and comfortable. Home from work now, I just put on/sampled D&G #1 Le Bateleur. A bit too masculine-woodsy for my taste, but still...
There is a BBC "Horizon" episode made about scent, with Luca Turin. But I have not been able to find it yet.
Thank you very much! Going next weekend and we are definitely going to use this! :D
