    Re: Today I Bought - June 2012

    Molyneux Quartz pour Homme (blind buy) - on my skin it smells like Amouage Lyric Woman (but with 150 dollars still in my wallet)! It was a great comfort for my disappointment in Quartz for women...

    Re: SotD, Monday 11th June 2012

    Morning! I'm testing Ormonde Woman. Not loving it, but it is very pleasant. I'm just way too much in a violet, amber and smoke phase to love this too much as it's pretty mild on my skin..

    Re: Synchronized Fridays 2012

    Good. :) Though I just found out Atrape Couer is discontinued so I don't want to like it.

    I'm wearing Butterfly right now and definitely not loving it. I smell like a banana fudge covered...

    Re: Synchronized Fridays 2012

    Hi All,

    My first time doing this, and you've inspired me into randomly picking scents I've never heard of (but first checking if it fits with the theme) from my newly stocked "sample drawer". :D

    Re: SotD Monday, 4 June 2012

    Good afternoon all! Horribly cold spring day today and I think my SOTD works for that.

    Decided to try Blask by Humiecki & Graef. I am rather impressed and do like it, but just don't love it...

  99. Re: the new corps et ames edt apaisante - anyone try it yet?

    I just got a sample, and I'm now itching to try the original! I am still in testing phase, but I find this such a lovely scent that a FB might be an option!

    The lemon is consistent throughout but...

    Hi Kalli! :D

    I actually randomly found her just now because I googled niche perfumes in Amsterdam, and then started looking for reviews... What a coincidence to find a review from you! :)
