    Re: The French Pronunciation Thread

    Just found this thread and the audio files in the first post were really useful, thank you. Thanks also to people who wrote phonetic pronunciation guides in subsequent posts.

    Re: When Les Exclusifs and Pop-Psychology Collide

    This is funny! :grin: Reminds me of my experience with the Dior consultant in the cosmetics hall at Harrods - I told him I was curious about some of their scents and he offered to take me through...

    Keiko Mecheri's postage delays

    I've now placed two orders for samples direct from KM's website, one at the beginning of the year and the other at the end of March. The order I placed in January took three weeks to be dispatched...

    Re: Fragrances you WANT to like

    PG's Cuir Venenum. I kind of love it already, but it has this slightly disturbing edge to it that I can't shake off. I want to be able to move past that so that I can wear it, because I think it's...

    Re: Secretions Magnifique

    Any time I smell this I want to run away! I have no doubt that it changes after time - I've read so many reviews saying as much - but that opening! To me, it smells like lemon juice spilt on tin...

    Re: What's up at The Perfumed Court?

    Ouch! I've been lucky so far - none of the samples I've wanted have been very expensive ones. I'm a baby perfumista and am very new to the world of sampling, until recently I'd only smelt things...

    Re: What's up at The Perfumed Court?

    Yay! Thank you, very well said. Glad there are some of us speaking up and showing that not all BNers are so ungracious. I really hope this thread cools down a little.

    Re: What's up at The Perfumed Court?

    I'm probably taking a bit of a risk in saying this, but I really think that the way forward is to be a little patient, not to jump to any conclusions too quickly and have a little faith in all...

    Re: What's up at The Perfumed Court?

    I had this email too and the wording was a little alarming. I emailed the ladies at STC and Patty got back to me within minutes, giving me the tracking details of the parcel TPC have listed as...

    Re: What's up at The Perfumed Court?

    Yes, I had one today. Am a little concerned, not least because the wording of the email doesn't make it sound as though all parties involved (i.e. those still at TPC and those who left to form STC)...

    Re: What's up at The Perfumed Court?

    Whilst I know nothing about the inner workings and politics of TPC and StC, I imagine (should that be hope?!) that all this was done with everyone's full knowledge and consent. Personally I don't...

    Have you all heard about the new venture - Surrender to Chance? I'm very interested in what their inventory will be like. Of the three orders I've placed with TPC thus far, most items are dispatched...

    Re: The Perfumed Court going out of business?

    I'm very interested in what StC will have to offer in terms of inventory. Of the three orders I've placed with TPC thus far, most items are dispatched quite quickly but there are two exceptions and...
  15. Re: Interested in smooth, creamy floral notes - advice needed!

    Hi

    Thank you for your reply, that link was extremely useful and definitely worth reading.

    Thanks also to everyone else who replied. I can smell most of the perfumes mentioned before I commit...
  16. Missing link between Ormonde Jayne's Champaca and Parfum d'Empire's Osmanthus Interdite?

    I'm testing these side by side today and to my admittedly uneducated schnoz, they smell virtually identical. The OJ Osmanthus is ever so slightly richer and creamier (Iso E super???) but other than...
  17. Interested in smooth, creamy floral notes - advice needed!

    I'm trying to narrow down a list of samples for my Perfumed Court order. I want to explore some floral notes and I'm interested in smooth, creamy, possibly slightly sweet florals. From what I've...

    Mimi Gardenia - your reputation precedes you, I think I heard about the infamous Mimi Gardenia the same time I first heard of Basenotes! So do you think that fruity chypre is an...

    Keiko Mecheri's Ume as a fruity chypre?

    (I also posted this thread on Fragrantica)

    I'm new to perfumes, still a baby perfumista, a novice.

    Keiko Mecheri Ume is listed as a fruity chypre on Fragrantica. Do you think this is a fair...

    Eep! $275 for 50ml? :shocked: These had better be phenomenal. That's quite a jump from Keiko's standard range. For my bank account's sake, I think I'd better give these a wide berth but wouldn't...
