Hello everyone. Hermes Voyage for me today - edt this morning, parfum this evening.
Hello all. Bel Respiro today
Hello all. Piguet Visa for me this evening.
Hello. Hope all are well. Essence by Narciso Rodriguez for me today.
Evening all. 31 Rue Cambon
B Scent by Lush. At the margins of a 'sample' since it's a 10ml mini. I expect I pulled it out because it was the biggest thing in the bag. Fennel overload!
Happy Birthday Kumquat!
Good news kewart - you'll be back at the disco in no time :)
Tam Dao for me today.
Hmmm - I'll have to decide first which bag of samples to grab from - so it will be a double random grab for me :)
Hello. Angel edt for me today.
Hey kiliwia - me too - Ormonde Woman for the synch
Have a lovely time in Bruges Jon. Beautiful place. Begijnhof is my favourite part.
Evening all. L'Occitane Ambre today. A spritz of their new Ambre & Santal on the back of my hand too.
English perfumery - Jo Malone, Ormonde Jayne, Lush ... those count? Ormonde Woman for me I think.
Woah! Just come back after another hiatus and BN has changed back to something like the site I knew and loved - will have to backtrack on the boards to see what has been going on.
SOTD is Angel...
Mumsy - after that description I'm going out to get me some Kylie!
SJP Lovely for me. It's my only s'lubscent. Liquid Satin version - bit oily-feeling on first application, but very pretty,...
Another vote for ysl Cinema
Doh! Forgot it was Friday so didn't check synch. My choice today was a random grab - Tam Dao - but a FB not a sample. Will join you later. My samples are all over the place but have a box full of Les...
Oh 'eck! This is a tricky one. May dig out my sample of L'Eau by Uncle Serge - that's pretty quiet, or that JHAG 'Not a Perfume'.
Hi Rowan - glad you're joining us.
Not very spring-like here either - snow on the cars this morning! But it has been a beautiful sunny day so maybe the weather is turning at last.
OK - spring - I'm thinking fluffy bunnies,...
Mugler Innocent for me. Dominique is one of the noses behind this.
Challenging scent will have me reaching for Janus-faced Jicky. I only have current formulation edt. Sometimes divine to my nose and other times utterly evil.
Calamity J over here.
Comfort blanket scent. I'm torn between leather and food - perhaps go for a combination: Bulgari Black. Plus it's my go-to scent when nothing else beckons. Traversee du Bosphore also a contender.
Hello. Sotd was 31 Rue Cambon and sote is Byredo Pulp. I smell like a fruit bowl full of overripe figs - triffic!
Condolences Chris. We lost our beautiful cat Baxter last summer just 6 weeks shy of her 20th birthday. Absolutely devastating. I kept thinking I saw and heard her for weeks afterwards. Terrible...
Hello everyone. Talking of kittens ... having trouble typing since one of the cats has fallen asleep on my right arm, pinning it to the keypad of the laptop. He weighs a ton - definitely not a kitten...
Hola Amin. Have fun on your fragrance journey!
Right, what's tomorrow then? Easy peasy, House of Guerlain. Habit Rouge maybe... or Jicky. I'll take a look at my stats and see which ones I've neglected of late.
Edit: Mitsouko - last worn 6th...
I'd like to join you on one of those rickety bar stools but I've eaten so many pancakes this evening I fear it may collapse ... Thanks for a lovely thread today - it has lifted my spirits.
I wore Black today and hints of it still remain after 12 hours. I'm inspired now to dig out my Omnia and see how it fares. My recollection from previous wearings is about 3-4 hours.
Drat! Didn't have time to check the theme before leaving for work this morning, so missed the synch. Wore Calamity J, which, while not exactly a wallflower, isn't really loud either. Going to douse...
No scent today - ashamed to say that in my rush to leave the house this morning I forgot! I expect that's grounds for being drummed out of BN.
Just dropped by to wish 30 Roses a very happy...
Hello all. Wow! - so many of my favourite frags on the thread today - 31 Rue Cambon, Hypnotic Poison, Cuir Lancome, Habit Rouge, Voyage - it smells great in here.
30Roses - is that the new No 1 or...
Hello all. Sotd was Extravagance D'Amarige and sote is Hermes Voyage.
Hope everyone is feeling chipper. x
Didn't wear any scent today but reading sotd thread this evening made me hanker after a Chanel, so it's 31 Rue Cambon for me at the moment.
Well done Lucasai and Robin's daughter! Great news for...
Synching in Givenchy III - one of the few vintage frags I have.
Going with some vintage tomorrow - Givenchy III, probably oldest in my collection by date of manufacture, and one of the few vintages I own. May treat myself to the parfum.
A winter warmer for me - Hypnotic Poison (any excuse)
Felt like a leather day today - Lancome Cuir
Happy Birthday southerngardens! Hope you are enjoying your special day.
Evening all. Snowing steadily here, but since I've no place to go ... well, you know the rest ...
Still with Mr Roucel in L by Lolita Lempicka. A nice companion piece to Musc Ravageur, same musky,...
Hello! For synch Friday (created by P Bourdon or M Roucel) I'm in Musc Ravageur.
Happy Birthday odysseusm!
And a belated Happy Birthday to inees for yesterday.
30Roses - hope your mum is doing...
I have more from Mr Roucel, so will be one of his for me. Musc Ravageur perhaps. I think that will go well with the snow we're expecting tomorrow.
(Twolf) (Mike) (lucas) (anyone else in need). Thinking of you x.
Good luck in your new home Foustie!
For synch Friday (a scent to warm you up) I'm in L'Air du Desert Marocain.
My warming scent is L'Air du Desert Marocain - woody, smoky, spicy, lovely. And I can at least imagine I'm somewhere exotic today instead of damp and dreary Yorkshire.
What!? Almost midday in the UK and no sotd?? Am I missing something?
Allow me ...
Hermes Rocabar. Bought this as a Christmas present for my husband, but stealing a little for my own use today....
No sotd today, but must post my birthday wishes and congrats to the one and only Jon! Sounds like you have had a lovely day - and well-deserved too. Evidently great people are born on 6th Jan since...
Hello and happy Friday all! My Christmas tree came down yesterday. Got increasingly fed up of pulling the kittens out of it, untangling them from the lights/tinsel and retrieving baubles from the...
Hello. Allure edp for me today. Received a sample of it when I purchased another Chanel, but have never given it any air until today. Pleasant enough.
Some ideas for synchs - a frag you associate...
Perfume-wise some Petite Robe Noire extrait and a bottle of L by Lolita Lempicka. Other gifts included some books, chocs, jewellery, clothes and Jaws on blu-ray.
Happy New Year to all my lovely BN buddies!
Started 2013 in Voyage d'Hermes.
Congratulations Teardrop! :)
I received a bottle of La Petite Robe Noire extrait from my SO. Also a bottle of L by Lolita Lempicka. I bought that for myself but my husband intercepted it before I had a chance to open and it...
Yes, it's lovely. It will get its first proper airing today, although like bookwrymsmith I'm at the fag-end of a wretched cold (two weeks now - one of the worst I've had) and my sniffer's not quite...
According to the BN directory there were just over 1,300 releases in 2012. I've tried maybe half a dozen, mostly flankers of Angel and Agent Provocateur. I'll go with Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire. I...
Hello all. Trust you all had a fine day yesterday without too many dud pressies! Today I'm in L by Lolita Lempicka.
Evening all. Ormonde Woman for me today. Expecting the family over tomorrow for an early Christmas celebration. I think they're just coming over to see the kittens - maybe I'll serve one up for lunch...
Yes, I'd pick Lovely as one of the better ones, although I tend to give celebrity smells a wide berth, so I'm not that familiar with them. I did give Fame a whirl and thought it was dull. I was...
Hello! Angel edt for synch Friday/end of the world :)
Almost Shalimar for me too - perhaps not quite a 180 turn, but pretty close. Going with Angel though. Couldn't believe anyone could wear such a monstrosity on first sniff some years ago, but now I...
Hello all. In the reissued Laura Ashley No 1. I have never tried the original, so can't say how it compares. I do like this, but find it a slightly tamer version of Gucci Envy.
Hello all. Wore Bulgari Black today.
Terre d'Hermes was my first thought, but that's a bit literal. I'm thinking 'soil' rather than 'planet', so might go with Coromandel since I get an earthy, compost vibe with that one (more pleasant...
Morning all. Will spend most of the day ensconced in the home study working, so Voyage d'Hermes is the closest I'll get to going anywhere today. Enjoy your day everyone. x
Cristalle - it smells fresh and clean, but with a sharp edge. Like taking a deep breath in sub-zero temperatures.
Traversee du Bosphore for me. Fruit, leather, iris, turkish delight and a hint of cardboard - close to the scent of a newly opened box of chocolates. I like this stuff more every time I wear it.
Inees - I'm so sorry to hear this terrible news. Sincerest condolences to you and your family. You are in my thoughts.
Hello all. Lovely pics on the thread today, but some terrible jokes! :)
Happy Birthday kumquat! And a very belated Happy Birthday to mikep - sorry it's late. Good luck with the move inees.
Tomorrow will be tough - lots of scents in my collection fit this particular bill. I'll probably go for one of my neglected designer frags like Envy, Paloma Picasso or Missoni - great frags I don't...
Ah, GUM! I went 'shopping' there back in 1990. It was full of baskets and tights but not much else. Also queued for ages to visit Lenin in his tomb and narrowly avoided being arrested for unruly...
Ugh, Christmas shopping - haven't even thought about it. Xmas is sneaking up on me once again.
Grim weather here today. Transporting myself with L'Air du Desert Marocain
Have a lovely evening G...
Fear not everyone, the kittens are staying with us forever, or until they decide otherwise. We got them from the rescue centre a few days ago. I wasn't sure I was ready for another cat but my SO was...
Congratulations Jon! A fabulous achievement for a great basenoter.
Sotd - Osmanthe Yunnan
Sote - Voyage d'Hermes
Been neglecting basenotes over the last few days. Chiefly because I have a new...
Evening all. With Gary in Bond No 9 - Chinatown
Happy Anniversary to Evangeline and mister!! And Happy Birthday to Mr Twolf.
Happy celebrating iivanita - what's the occasion? Hello cindyrella - nice choice. I like L'Agent too.
Synching in Cuir Ottoman, a new love discovered in 2012, although released a few years ago.
My three favourite discoveries this year have been Traversee du Bosphore, Vetiver Pour Elle and Cuir Ottoman. Will be one of those for me tomorrow.
Bulgari Black today.
Hope all are well.
Sneaking in before thread locked. Happy Birthday to PerfumedLady (sorry it's a bit late)!
Sotd was Laura Ashley No 1.
(kalli) (30Roses and mum) (JR)
Welcome back Inees!
Le Feu D'Issey for synch Friday - don't quite get the fire connection from the smell, so the name will have to do.
Love to all x.
Like the smoky idea - suggests L'Air du Desert Marocain to me. Or Le Feu D'Issey, from my tiny sample vial. That's fiery in name, if not in nature.
Evening chaps. Hope all are well - and if not then get well soon (looking at you Foustie!).
Osmanthe Yunnan was my SOTD
I married in '93, and while I can't remember exactly, thinking back to the bottles I had around then it probably would have been either L'Air du Temps, Samsara or Amarige. If I was a betting person...
Agree with Baiser Vole and Bottega Veneta - both very good scents. My very favourite recent mainstream releases are from Guerlain - Shalimar Parfum Initial and the new Petite Robe Noire. The latter...
Love it and wear it. Unisex as far as I'm concerned, although like rubegon I would put it more on the feminine side. I get the iris, leather and a bit of fruity rose, but no tobacco. Doesn't bother...
Hello all. Bulgari Black for me today.
Also watching the news about Sandy on the BBC - thinking of you all on the east coast, take care.
Morning lucasai - right back at ya with those vibes! No snow here although my in-laws in Scotland have had a dusting. That's a nice bag iivanita, pearls and Timbuktu, what else does a gal need? Wish...
Giving the synch a miss today. This theme requires a bit of thought and all my brain power is being used up elsewhere today! I'm interested to see what others come up with though.
Hi all. Shalimar today. Hope you are all fine and dandy!
I'm joining the Guerlain-fest in Shalimar Parfum Initial.
I'll join you Robin in some Thierry Mugler - Angel edt.
(Twolf) - get well soon!
Happy Birthday Mr Belle!
1000 bucks - no. The cost of putting devilkitten through university - most definitely yes.
Morning all. Beautiful picture Ladymurasaki.
For synch Friday (water) I'm in Cool Water Wave Woman by Davidoff (there's a mouthful and no mistake). This is a nice light woody floral composition,...
D is for Deci Dela by Nina Ricci
Yay! Friday tomorrow. Lots to choose from for the synch (water). I guess anything with Eau or Aqua in the name will hit the target, although that does seem a tad dull. Still, at least I can do better...
Happy Birthday Kiliwia! Wishing you many more.
Sotd is La Petite Robe Noire 2012.
Hello all. With senore01 in Tom Ford - wearing a sample of Black Orchid with a touch of Voile de Fleur on the back of the hand. VdF is a is a big floral fragrance - bit too much like Fracas, which I...
Happy Birthday Roberto!! Hope you are enjoying your day.
Sotd was AP Maitresse.
Well, I'm utterly neutral about Brad Pitt. Don't care for the Chanel ad. Wish I'd seen the advert before the...
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Kiliwia! That's certainly an achievement worth celebrating. Have lovely day both of you.
Hello all. Hope everyone is well. Hypnotic Poison for me today
I need to do some serious sampling/research before Christmas to make up my mind. TBH, blasphemous though it may be to admit as much on Basenotes, nothing I've tried recently has moved me to think 'I...
I wouldn't like it if my SO bought me a fragrance worn by an ex of his. He could try and reassure me as much as he liked that it was just about the fragrance and not the woman, but I wouldn't be...
