Well done Marloes!
Pulp - by Byredo
Here's the deal - Over the past three years lurking on Basenotes - I've managed to amass quite a collection of frags, and I've got to the point where I'm looking for something really...
My pet peeve are fragrances that smell delicious until … the cheap white musk base note hits .. and refuses to go away. It reminds me of my Paco Rabanne 1Million nightmare - sprayed on a jacket and...
I agree - Byredo Pulp - starts off tropical fruit - ends up like a bowl of ripe red apples - but never too sickly or cloying. BUT - be warned - it is one of the most tenacious fragrances out there -...
Blind Buying can be fun - so take a few risks. Once you've got a sense of what you like in terms of fragrance families ( citrus , fougere etc) - then the risk of getting something completely...
Just a quickie - LONDON
Liberty - has all the Byredo stuff - which is fun, and the assistants aren't constantly hovering so you can spray yourself silly.
Les Scenteurs - best for brilliant...
Am ambivalent about Vetiver - maybe because I wore it all through my 20s and it's nowhere near as great as it used to be
Am intrigued by Mitsouko - wear it on occasion
Really Like Derby - but not...
Hedonist, you're right - patchouli isn't a note as far as I know, EN is just a dry vetiver - maybe I was channeling Bowie too much - that's why I've just dyed my hair ginger and bought a lurex...
the only one I buy again and again and again and again ( although I love all good citrus frags)
is Eau de Guerlain
Hollywood Macho - Knize 10
60's Blue Collar Macho - Brut
70's Macho (Europe) Azzaro (US) Halston Z14
70's Macho (Burt Reynolds) Aramis
80's Macho - Kouros or Antaeus
90's Macho - Cool...
Yesterday I went to the Bowie retrospective at the V&A (verdict: great if you're a diehard fan, but otherwise disjointed and over-crowded, with a disorientating compulsory audio guide) and midway...
Cuir de Russie
Bal a Versailles
Tried it 3x now - as I work near Liberty, so can spritz both to and from work. I desperately wanted to like this , as I admire and respect both Dries and Frederic Malle - but sadly no dice. As the...
It's easily Eau de Guerlain - everything else pales in comparison and that includes Acqua Di Parma, Monsieur Balmain, etc. To me it's really hugely underrated with great longevity which is unusual...
Bandit is Business Class
Cabochard - Super-economy ( but still with enough leg room)
I did something similar recently - to a big group of students where I teach (about 150) . Admittedly, it was a somewhat random group of fragrances and a mixture of men's and women's -...
If you're flying from Gatwick or Heathrow ( or have an obliging friend) - the Chanel Boutiques at the airport do the 200ml Les Exclusives for about £158 (which works out at about £79 per 100 ml -...
Eau de Guerlain
Chanel Cuir de Russie
Dirty by Lush
Quite schizophrenic now I think about it.
In supernatural fiction, and in some well documented cases, ghosts (or whatever you wish to call them) can make their presence known simply by imparting a fragrance to their...
I've now finished my lecture - which went really well - although it was a lot to pack in to two hours. And I just wanted to write and thank everyone who gave me some invaluable pointers....
I normally surf Basenotes in bed - and you simply can't do that if you smell of nothing.
Also, I agree with a previous poster, perfume is a sensual drug - so surely your bed is the...
From a personal perspective..in no particular order
1: Eau de Guerlain
2: Knize 10
4: Grey Flannel
5: Musc Ravageur
but in terms of industry impact
Kouros - love it or hate it - nobody's copied it
Yatagan - pretty out there too
Bandit - Piguet
Geranium pour Monsieur by Malle - don't like it anywhere near as much as I used to but it's...
Ok here are my 10..
1) Eau de Guerlain
2) Knize 10
3) Frederic Malle - Geranium Pour Monsieur
5) Insense - Givenchy
8) Chanel Cuir de Russie
I've a question. (well, a few really)
Can you trademark a fragrance formula? especially given that there are so many similarities within genres of scent, and so many blatant copies on the market?...
Dear Basenoters- I could do with some advice. Plus as a first timer poster I’m going for the record on the longest diatribe.
Part of me feels a little like a student who’s attempting to get...
