    This forum is where I heard about all of those brands except for one. I'm not looking for an industry insider or anything, just a perfume collector who owns a perfume made by one or more of those...
  2. Re: Arabian perfume brands that state they don't animal test or use animal ingredients?

    Some of the aromachemical companies continue to test on animals in development. Others no longer do it and use the newer alternative methods of safety testing that do not involve animals. So the...

  6. Ava Luxe Bois Fonce oud - what type of oud does it smell like?

    Has anyone tried Ava Luxe Bois Fonce? I am wondering whether it smells closer to Cambodian, Assam, or some other kind. (I realize it may not contain any actual oud or maybe only a small amount of...
  7. Notes of Jannat Al-Firdous or scents that are similar to it? Thinking of buying it from Attar Bazaar

    Attar Bazaar does not give notes but it's a traditional Arabian scent so I thought I could find information somewhere. But I am getting a bunch of conflicting notes and descriptions from the few...

    Re: Why so many more men than women?

    Firemave- I do think women are sometimes reluctant to discuss fragrance in person, because many other women have been hesitant to tell me what they are wearing when asked, they see it as their secret...
  12. Re: New Fragrance: L’Occitane Plum Blossom / Fleurs de Brignoles

    Sampling this now. An innocuous warm fruity floral. I like fruity florals, so I would say there's nothing really wrong with it, but it doesn't stand out. It smells like a more delicate, natural...

    Re: Why so many more men than women?

    I used to smell Old Spice on my Dad, I think he wears something a little more understated now but I don't think he is that particular about what, mostly it's just aftershave and only on special...
  19. Re: Do you feel weird when someone caught you sniffing the fragrance on your wrist?

    I only test on the back of my wrists, I wouldn't want to put a scent I'm not sure about on a pulse point. But if I have only sprayed there, I still figure people know what I am doing. It's when I...
