That's a fabulous line-up! :)
Keiko Mecheri Attar de Roses - 8 daytime wears and most nights
Prada Infusion d'Iris - 5 day time wears
Chanel Bois des Iles - 4 day time wears
Oh, very interesting, thanks for sharing! :)
Life is full of risks. Big and small. The fact is we don't know the effects of everything in our perfumes. If you're worried about it, then don't wear it. But if that's your attitude you better...
In 2014 the majority of Chanels (including Coco) underwent a widely disliked reformulation. You are probably smelling a 2014 batch.
Bruno Acampora Jasmin +1
Maybe hunt down some vintage Joy parfum?
^^^I too wonder what you mean. Here are a couple choices, which one are you talking about?
Chloe Chloe (original Chloe perfume released in 1975 and discontinued)...
Chanel Bois des Iles
Prada Infusion d'Iris
Keiko Mecheri Attar de Roses
+1 to Chanel Coco
Jo Malone's Dark Amber and Ginger Lily
Not exactly in the same family but definitely the same vibe: Samsara
I agree with Aurora Nomade, but you should also check out Jean Patou's Sira des Indes and D&Gs Sicily.
You should really check out DKNY Sweet Delicious Creamy Meringue, I bet you'll find it spot on.
Check out beautyspin, I've had good luck with them. :)
I would recommend:
Serge Lutens Borneo 1834
MFK's Absolue Pour le Soir
Nasomatto Black Afghano +1
Parfumerie Generale Coze
If you like patchouli but want a gentler fragrance reminiscent of CoCo Mad that still has patchouli, consider trying L'Eau de Chloe or Miss Dior EDP. For lighter versions try Miss Dior EDT or Miss...
Hmm, none of them really strike me as totally leather forward. I guess Memoir is the closest and then perhaps Fate but none of them are leather fragrances per se. For what its worth, I've always...
I quite like the Chance line. Eau Fraiche is nice and performs averagely on me. I got a couple compliments from women during a sample wear. I think your gf will be pleased.
Bois des Iles is my hands down favorite, followed closely by vintage Samsara.
Keiko Mecheri Attar de Roses is my signature.
No, I don't wear it every day.
Yes, people associate it with me.
I wear it at least once a week, for all big family events, and usually also wear...
I mostly wear my iris or rose fragrances to work. Nothing with heavy patchouli.
Annick Goutal Mon Parfum Chéri, par Camille
Your premise is flawed and you're not looking hard enough.
I'm not saying that everything that's coming out these days is fabulous, I'm not even saying that majority of it great (for any...
I'm hoping for a back up bottle of Keiko Mecheri's Attar de Roses, another bottle of Prada's Infusion d'Iris, and a bottle of Maria Candida Gentile's Burlesque.
My signature is Keiko Mecheri Attar de Roses but my favorite perfume Chanel's Bois des Iles.
+1 to both suggestions. I agree, the myrrh in both is pretty prominent though still tempered by iris. I actually find that Bois d'Iris has more a more satisfying myrrh note than Bois d'Argent.
Ditto to what foxbins said.
Fragrantica's algorithm seems to drive what is classified as what. Over the years I have noticed many of the incense focused fragrances are also classified by their algorithm as chypres when the are...
My most worn designer scents in cold weather are:
Miss Dior Le Parfum
Whoa! For real? Bois Noir?! That is amazing.
There are lots of great options, I think its best for her to just sniff around and see what she likes. My favorite is West Side which is a rose vanilla combo.
Danieq Myrrhe Ardente has been discontinued for awhile now, even before the reformulation and packaging changes happened. If you want it, get it now.
Hi LadyDragonFire :) I think I catch your drift. The Annick Goutal line is primarily classic compositions that reflect more of an 'old world sensibility' meaning that many are floral focused or...
Good evening everyone.
This evening I'm enjoying a small cloud of ANGEL. :engel017:
MJDancer I love ChocoMusk!
Jon Thank you, I'm hoping so too! :) *crosses fingers*
ScentsSibyl Shanaan is gorgeous, it doesn't get enough attention IMO.
mike bestill my heart, I adore Bois des Iles in any form but I can...
In terms of designer fragrances for larger houses, it does seem that creative directors did have some influence on what was getting released. Look at Tom Ford for example. You can trace his path...
Wanted to add that though I've worn Coromandel since 2010, I've never really smelled the famed white chocolate note (though I'd like to). To me its predominately a patchouli, frankincense, benzoin...
Kotori thank you for sharing your insights.
Personally, I am a huge fan of the Chanel Les Exclusifs line. I currently own Bois des Iles (finished, repurchased and backed up in both EDT and...
Byredo's Ambre Japonais
TOP: coriander seed, black pepper
BASE: sesame, bourbon vanilla
Anyway, back on track now. Here are the ones I've found to be the worst to my nose:
Blue Grass by Elizabeth Arden
Fumidus by Profumum Roma
Femme de Mont Blanc...
LMAO, wow. That sounds truly horrible!
Good morning everyone :)
Woke up to a massive head cold this morning. Even though I can't really smell much of anything right now for habit's sake I decide on a single spray of Miss Dior Le Parfum...
Nice review, thanks for the link. :)
Am I the only one paranoid that this relaunch means the original has also been reformulated?
Good morning everyone :)
My SOTD is Coromandel.
Hi Paul P :) Congrats on a wonderful acquisition! I inherited two vintages bottles of Y from my gran that look identical to your pics. One was from 1968 and one was from 1973 and I know this...
Interesting, but I don't think that's a clear representation. They are all certainly noteworthy fragrances but all of these are heavily adopted by the male BNers too so that is undoubtedly skewing...
I also think there is no female equivalent of Aventus.
There is no equivalent that we argue about, obsess over and claim as the ultimate weapon in catching the opposite sex. Sure, some of us...
mjdancer Mandragore Pourpre is a fabulous choice for Halloween.
Kotori L'ambre des Merveilles is also the lightest of the three you listed (to my nose anyway). If you haven't also tried the...
+1 to part of this. Very often I see people be hostile, elitist, exclusionary and judgmental on here though I would not agree that it is a general attitude. When compared to other fragrance focused...
I agree, the camphor note in TC is amazing in the heat. Great choice!
My summer favorites:
Hermes Eau des Merveilles
Chanel Eau de Cologne
Chanel Chance Eau Tendre
Byredo Gypsy Water (wearable in all seasons actually)
Amouage Homage (also wearable all seasons)...
I'll be wearing Keiko Mecheri's Attar de Roses on Christmas as I always tried to wear the same fragrance for family get-togethers. For my husband's corporate party I'll probably wear Chanel's Bois...
ExtremeK you're welcome! Ya, the price is steep :/ I keep going back and forth about whether or not I can really deal with periodic decant buying or if I need to just bite the bullet. I suggested...
Hi FrouFrou :) I snooped your wardrobe and it seems to me you have lots of great choices. I think its a great excuse to wear one of your darker, fabulous, witchy, chypres like Magie Noire or...
I adore Poison. Its definitely a statement maker, distinctive, dark and mysterious. The reason no one mentioned it before was that you specifically asked for non-floral gourmands: Poison has a huge...
I love this idea!
Today I pulled out one of my budget favs, Revlon Black Cherry.
Fig notes seem to ruin every composition for me.
ExtremeK it occurs to me that you might enjoy the Xerjoff more.
No. Think of it this way: if you really like the Chanel you can buy it now or you can buy it later after you're dissatisfied with your other purchase.
Good evening everyone, today I'm wearing Xerjoff's Irisss. This is just gorgeous, delicate, creamy orris butter with a hint of a pear note to offset the grayness and the carrot note. It's got just...
What you can find at Sephora that most closely meets your criteria are:
TF's Noire Pour Femme (depends on the Sephora)
Fresh Cannibis Santal -- give it a sniff....
I also just wanted to remind everyone that you don't have to own the fragrances to participate. This is a great way to rediscover samples you might have squirreled away somewhere. It's also a great...
Anyone who doubts the guy in the video is trolling should re-watch the last 15 seconds of it. :rolleyesold: His motives are quite clearly expressed.
Potential ideas for themes:
Traditional Chypres (Mitsouko, Knowing, Aromatics Elixir, etc)
Pink Chypres (Coco Mad, Miss Dior Cherie, etc)
Powdery Notes (iris, rose, heliotrope, violet, almond)...
Yes, I'd love to participate and/or host a week when I can.
If you have to chose between the two, go with Tea for Two.
Since you're in a tropical country though, why don't you go down to Sephora and test both Hermes Eau des Merveilles and Elixir des...
I think EDT is passable, the vintage version even more so. EDP isn't. Parfum is in between.
Of the choices, I've tried 12 and owned 6, but my personal favorite is Ambra Aurea. Not saying its the best though.
Sure Monkeys, no problem. :) I bought my bottle in January 2015. I paid $600 for 30mls which I thought was a steal. I remember seeing $425 as the average price of 12ml at that time. The 30ml...
Lyric Man to my nose is a soapy, citrusy rose. Other things to smell at Scent Bar staying along the lines of clean rose compositions: both MFK's Lumiere Noire Pour Homme and Lumiere Noire Pour...
Good evening everyone!
I've been happy all day floating around in my Amouage Homage.
Oh wonderful! It sounds like quite the mix. :) On another note, I always wonder why more women don't wear Jubilation XXV? Its truly gorgeous juice.
I just went all the way through to the payment step and it doesn't seem to charge tax for me. You should be fine.
^^^Thank you, Monkeys, I enjoy your posts as well. :)
Unfortunately many have moved to Fragrantica, Parfumo, MUA, Facebook or dropped off all together.
I am very hit or miss in my tastes and personal preferences for the Angel babies. Flowerbomb is fine, it's got close to the same structure as its mama, but less mirth. I don't love it but I don't...
My favorite is Cuir de Russie followed by Knize Ten and Bel Ami.
My favorites are: Egoiste, L'Eau Diptyque and Spicebomb (in that order).
Noir de Noir is my choice.
I agree that Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver would be a great choice.
This is a good point and potentially a reason not to combine.
BTW, how are you going to get them all into the original bottle? Does the sprayer come off easily?
Hi freedomintense :)
All of the ones you mentioned smell good and are appropriate.
If you're looking for us to pick between them, my vote would be for Spicebomb.
I'm going to a Halloween party as the ghost of a 1920's flapper so I'll be wearing Habanita.
Good morning everyone :)
Today I'm wearing one of my favorite, underrated irises: Odori's Iris. It is marketed as a masculine release but it has an ethereal quality to it that I think suits women...
Good evening :)
My SOTE is Profumum Roma's Ambra Aurea. This one is such a beast, I love it but I feel like the whole house smells of it after only one spray! lol
Good morning :)
My scent of the day is Chanel's No19 Poudre.
SOTE is SL Borneo 1834.
Yum! I love Tihota! :)
Getting back in sync tonight with Borneo 1834. :)
Ormonde Jayne's Ormonde Man
Timbuktu by L'Artisan
Chanel's Bel Respiro
Aedes de Venustas Eau de Parfum
Aube Pashmina by HUITIEME ART PARFUMS
Nuit Etoilee Eau de Parfum by...
Thanks for the thread! I hadn't heard about this new scent yet. I am also a fan of the original Must (despite the scathing review from LT & TS).
I took a look at the information on new Gold...
My SOTD is Prada's Infusion d'Iris but I will be switching to something by Uncle Serge after work this evening.
Joining in today and wearing Clair de Musc.
Good evening my SOTD/SOTE is Serge Lutens Clair de Musc. :)
My SOTE is Narciso Rodriguez for Her EDP.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bettina
Good morning :)
My SOTD is M. Micallef Royal Rose Aoud.
Good morning :)
My SOTD is Keiko Mecheri Attar de Roses.
I honestly prefer to smell DHI on a man.
