    Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire.

    It has taken some time for me to appreciate vetiver. There have been times when I've turned my nose up at it (or, in the case of Guerlain's fruity issue, turned away...
  84. Re: Children of the 70s and 80s- A Blast From the Past

    LOVED the Vidal Sassoon shampoo, plus, of course, Lemon Up.

    Kissing Potion: I lived next to a beach. The sand always got stuck in this gloss. The appeal of clear gloss was and is lost on me.

    Re: Self Tanners ~

    Far and away the best self-tanner I've used is Clarins Delicious Self-Tanning Cream. My biggest grip with self-tanners is that they either produce too much unnatural color (L'Oreal) or they don't do...

    Re: Your Favorite Cosmetic Brand?

    I am all over the board:
    A discontinued Cover Girl foundation (seriously, this was excellent and the color match perfection)

    From the venerable French jeweler Van Cleef and Arpels: Birmane.

    Birmane is a fruity Oriental with a ponderous white-musk base that smells to me not so much Continental as it does cumbersomely...
  89. Re: Need help with L'Occitane. Please tell me your faves - and why!

    Seconding the new rose--the Mai one. This reminds me a bit of Tocca Brigitte, and it was delightful. Slightly spicy, airy, fruity (but not too sweet).

    Not a perfume, but I love the Oranger...

    Re: SotD Tuesday 21 July

    You know how the story goes: Flu and fragrance do not mix.

    My story's protagonist is Jil Sander #4. On a rainy day near Christmas 2006 I felt the beast creeping up my temples. I spent the next...

    Re: SotD Monday 20 July

    Imagine if someone at Piguet got the clever idea to release some summer versions of Bandit:

    Re: Please help me identify a lost perfume!!

    That's what I think as well. There are sometimes bottles of this on eBay, but these are shaped as soda-fountain glasses with foamy tops and a straw.

    Re: Fragrance Bottle Critique

    I have one of those original Eau Premiere bottles with a defective cap. This doesn't bother me since I keep the bottle in the box; I care more about the scent than the defective manufacturing.

    Re: Carnal Flower - what's the fuss

    The Sander #4 is related to Oranger (or the other way around); it is the closest thing to Oranger's gummy, gelatinized tuberose that you will find. Not so cheaply now, of course. I prefer FdO's...

    Re: "The lotion is a must for me" what about you?

    I rarely buy it. I am more likely to get the cream, but again just rarely. Still, there are some exceptional creams out there (and I will not count Malle's Beurre Exquise):
