    Is that me?

    So a few weeks ago I was walking outside and caught the scent of some lovely flowers, to my nose, jasmine. It was a typical humid day in Florida. I stopped and looked around for the jasmine bush and...

    Re: Jasmine that lasts?

    Thanks for pointing that out, yes all my samples are daubers. I did think the scent would be stronger with spray but I hadn't considered longevity.

    Thanks everyone else for the suggestions!

  17. Re: New here I may need some suggestions for winter/fall fragrance?

    I second the Tobacco Vanille for fall, though it doesn't have the citrusy freshness, it does have spice and smooth pipe tobacco to balance out the sweet and warm vanilla.

    Re: How do you organize/store your fragrances?

    Does it help to keep non-vintage fragrances refrigerated or do only vintages need to be preserved like this? Or do you store them that way so they all stay good for the rest of your lifetime?

    How do you organize/store your fragrances?

    Do you have a glass display case, a nice armoire to keep out the sun, a shoebox under the bed, a vault in your closet etc.
