New Haarlem- a new favorite.
A little less dog today... and a lot more Creed Virgin Island Water!
Hello Everyone! Sorry I have been offline for a while. I rescued an Old English Sheepdog last week and have been really busy with him. His name is Max and his pic is my avatar.
Today I am...
3 New Haarlem
3 Virgin Island Water
1 Tea for Two
1 Clear Day
1 Hermes Med
1 L' Heure Bleue
2 Coney Island
2 Fire Island
1 Un Jardin Sur de Nil
It's Dzing for me today. Today is a good day/ bad day. I am taking our classroom rat to the vet to either get a tumor removed or have her put to sleep. Then, after school, I may be getting a new...
Wow- birthday cake AND pain pills- must be FRIDAY!!!!!
Am sampling Chinatown today. I know a lot of people do not like Bond, but I must say, me likee!
Am sampling Coney Island.
Has anyone ever though about having regional get-togethers? Imagine basenoters coming together to first meet and greet and then swap and sell (and sample, sample sample!). We could even trade...
I have been sampling (and loving!!!) a lot of Bond No. 9. Drat you people who sent me samples! Now I want to buy, buy, buy!
Anyway... today is Fire Island.
I just sent samples and a full bottle not too long ago, told the lady at the post office what it was and had no problem. I had already written "fragile" on the packages. Not a prob.
I am wearing Coney Island from a sample sent by Bleu. I really like it- but every now and then I get a sniff of something off. Not sure what it is...
I am sampling New Haarlem today thanks to Tao... this is worth a BIG bottle!
As a child of two smoking parents, I am amazed that none of my siblings or I smoke. I would never tell anyone smoking was right or wrong, but I lost both of my parents to lung cancer last summer. ...
Today, another sample... Etienne Aigner Clear Day. Hard to find a lot of info on this... what little I did find called it an "aromatic floral essence".
OOOOO- Just learned about Tobacco Vanille. Will have to put it on my jonesing list!
As a lover and occasional wearer of "men's" fragrances, I was wondering what you like to buy or borrow for yourselves that is either marketed for men or unisex?
I wear Tea for Two which many have...
Ordered Love's True Bluish Light from Ava Luxe and 40.00 of samples from TPC:
Hermes Un Jardin en Mediterranee
Guerlain L'Heure Bleue EDP
Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur
POTL People of the...
Started out wearing a sample of something with a smeared title- Moschino perhaps. It did not last. I keep a few decants in my desk at work so now I am sniffing Tea for Two. Yum.
Many thanks, Tommi - Also got to play a little slots!
Serena just added more Love's True Bluish Light to her etsy website. Just an FYI.
Creed Virgin Island Water- happy day!
I've only been to a few places to look for perfume. First was Nordstrom and the people were very helpful and friendly even though I looked like el-crapola- sweatpants and the works. I ended up...
Yikes! Ok, got me. Was building up a head of rage until I read the other comments. Newbie here.
It WAS fun- thanks for all who competed and voted! Yay us!!
I did not keep track and think I came very close to wearing a different scent every day, but I have worn Dzing 2 or 3 times since I have received my bottle.
A little more than 2 hours left to vote. Not much response yet- am hoping for a last minute surge!
Ok- five o'clock has come and gone and we have a winner! ...
I was hoping to get a few more entries but..... TIME IS UP! Please PM me the name of the person whom you would like to win. I'll close voting at 5 pm tomorrow.
Welll......... creativity is a sizzling on the basenotes community! I think I will leave this open until 5 pm tomorrow (EST). Then we'll have time to vote.
These are great so far!
Great start- anyone else?
PS- I have a former student, Erik, on the current season of Survivor. Go Erik!!!
Ahhhh... why did it take me so many months to discover Dzing!? LOVE IT!!!!! It came yesterday along with 6 samples from L'Artisan. I've heard the 50 ml was being discontinued but they still have...
Up for grabs is a BIG bottle of D&G Red which I won not too long ago from TVlampboy. It's a tad too spicy for me so I thought I would pass it on in the spirit of his generosity.
In this contest,...
I wear either Angel Innocent or my cotton candy body spray.
I just went to our local Sephora and came away with Fairytales. It is a limited edition perfume, decorated with a motif of mirrored fairies. The scent is described as a floriental.
Am wearing Vanilla Champagne but am jonesing for Chinatown and Dzing! Such is life!
I have had to buy him stuff- he came to me with a little basket of cologne he'd had since high school, including an old and I mean OLD) bottle of Old Spice. My Grandpa wore Old Spice! LOL
I usually transfer the juice to a small spray vial- much easier to use.
I agree totally- even if I weren't an English teacher!
Hanae Mori today- "The fragrance is a rare blend of berries and flowers, with a distinctive tone of strawberries and almond, giving an impression of vanilla."
D&G Red..... thanks to TVLampBoy..... to be honest, this is not a fave of mine. Following his generous spirit, I will probably be giving it away through a contest.
Burberry for Women, Mentafolia, Vanilla Champagne and Bright Crystal will not be replaced. I love Burberry and Mentafolia but I have a big bottle of each and they don't get used that often.
I am sampling Tom Ford's Black Orchid today.
I have heard so much about Ava Luxe but can't find many frags online- even at her website. Any clues?
I am sampling Rubylips by Salvadore Dali. It smells familiar but I can't put my finger (or nose) on it!
I have to uit reading this- have too many I want to try! I am wearing Coco Mlle. from a sample.
Am trying Fendi Palazzo today from a sample.
Mandarin Orange, Bergamot, Pink Pepper Berries, Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Bulgarian Rose, Patchouli, Gaiac Wood.
Didn't like it at first; it...
Good morning everyone! A rainy, droopy day here in Michigan. Even though I do not have 31 different samples of perfume designed by Women, I am going to wear a different sample every day.
Me, me! She converted me! LOL I really like it and purchased my own bottle.
I have a question... I seem to recall someone saying that the formula for Coco changed since it was first released (in the 80s?). Is that true and if so, does anyone know when? I have a bottle of...
Wore Light Blue today- forgot how much I liked it.
Oh... juice bar makes gummi bear perfume! LOLOL Oh to be young again. The same sight also has the cotton candy I use.
Does anyone wear anything that they are embarrassed to admit (at least a little)?
When I go to bed, I spray myself with Prince Matchabelli Cotton Candy (2.47 at Walmart). Seriously- it smells...
Today after choosing my scent,
I trailed Un Jardin sur le Nil as I went.
My only frag from Hermes...
My nose thinks "Hooray!"
It even pleases my gent.
That's awesome! LOL
Thanks to Indiscreet, I am wearing CSP - Vanille Mokha and that's EXACTLY what it smells like! Yummy!
Maybe if we tag our posts with what we have for sale or swap, we can do so. I know I was disappointed to see the minimum number of posts allowed to swap. I had Missoni Acqua and Cartier Delices eau...
Thanks! Sure you don't want to be groped? (Wink wink)
I don't think this thread will end
We're having too much fun hitting "send"
Even though there's no prize
We can't help being wise
With the wonderful limericks we've penned.
Your sweet words have given me hope
That not everyone thinks I'm a dope
I was writing for fun
And surprised that I won
(though I do wish I had gotten to grope)
I'm sorry... I didn't mean for them all the be judged, if they were. More than a few people have mentioned it. I followed up on just writing for fun. I'm sorry if that bothered anyone. I think...
Sestra's quite the wordy she-cat
Throwing out words just like that
She IS amazingly smart
For a British tart
A virtual lexicon-crat!
I just hauled my ass out of bed
To see if I won any Red
I am very thankful I won
But all were wonderfully done
(And no one had to actually give head.)
Sestra thinks I deserve a red butt
I have to stop on a dime - am starting to think in rhyme! I am going to bed and reading instead (YIKES- SEE WHAT I MEAN!)
Make it stopppppppppp!
Goodnight to all and good luck (ok- am...
What would we do for the "Red"?
We'd flash, shred clothes, and give head.
Each become such a poet
(and did not even know it)
We begged and we rhymed and we pled.
So I guess we're suppose to be gaudy
sexy and slinky and naughty
I'd flash you my muff
for a bottle of stuff
Is that enough to be bawdy?
(I know this doesn't count but I can't make myself...
"Ladies take note" said tvlampboy
"I've got perfume for you to enjoy."
It started a parade
a friendly escapade
Camaraderie, friendship and joy.
I am selling a few on ebay right now for the same reason- I just set the price at the lowest I was willing to sell them for and set a flat shipping fee.
There once was a cheapo from Michigan
who's trying to win perfume once again.
The cheapo was me
and I say with a plea...
Pick me! Or I'm doomed to stink out my man.
Oh well. LOL
Good morning everyone!
Am wearing Tea for Two today..... yummy.
You could also buy bigger bottles and decant into smaller. They (BBW) do have some great sprays though I don't think they last really long. Can we donate our own samples of perfume we have or do...
Awwww. .. poor you! I know how you feel, at least a little. I am now very interested in perfumes and have allergies and asthma as well. Not much bothers it as far as perfume goes, but I did have a...
I tried to add a sale thread but don;t have enough postings yet so am selling on ebay. :-(
Am starting out in Angel Innocent... new bottle to replace the old... yummy!
Wow- thanks for all the birthday greetings! It wasn't bad, actually- first one without my Mom calling me up and singing to me at 8:00 am. My significant other is out of town on his job and this is...
Good morning! Two snow days in a row and we have school today- on my 41st birthday! LOL Am celebrating in Un Jardin sur de Nil. I am never sure if I am spelling that right!
but am sure I will be fine
just not smelling nice
True- Had forgotten Light Blue.
Excitement all 'round
Who will win the joyful juice?
I can hardly wait....
I know there was a similar thread a while ago, but was wondering....
1. What is your prettiest fragrance bottle and please describe.
2. What is your ugliest (plainest, etc) bottle and please...
green floral pathways
is that citrus in the air?
lovely, lovely day
My biggest problem so far has been buying what I liked and then finding things I liked BETTER. I now have about 12 bottles and am going to sell a few because while I liked then at the time, I like...
Am wearing Tea for Two (thanks to Colin!)... my sweetie was sent out on a run yesterday, right through the storm. He had to deliver a load from Detroit to St. Louis- took him almost 16 hours but he...
Nothing major- spilled a sample of Bright Crystal. My pj bottoms smelled so nice I bought a bottle. I also had a sample of Brit seep into my bag.
I love that smiley!!!
Ok Smartypants! LOL What would he have to be wearing to rev your engines?
If it were you and the last man on Earth (whomever he may be).... what would HE be wearing?
PS- Minds out of the gutter.... of course he's naked, but what COLOGNE is he wearing?
I have not yet bought Un Jardin sur de Nil (spelling?). I want it!!!!!
In the library with all my classes today- ugh. Wearing Ellen Tracy- ummmm.
Mom ~ Coco
Dad ~ Stetson
Grandma ~ Jungle Gardenia
Grandpa ~ Old Spice
Grammar School days ~ Love's Baby Soft
High School days ~ Charlie, Cachet, White Shoulders
First Love ~ Caesar Woman,...
Hmmm... appears I am the only spendthrift, huh? LOL
I have an excuse- lots of catching up to do!
Un Jardin Sur Le Nil for me today. I remember smelling this at a store and not liking it very much. Everyone raved so much that I caved and got a sample. Wow- me likey.
Celebrating the middle...
Tea for Two... here I come!
Maybe some Virgin Island Water..... hmmmmm.
Am wearing The Pink Room today- it's a sample. Not really loving it.
According to Luckyscents, this is perfume 1 by the Pink Room:
bergamot, rose, jasmine, lily of the valley, violet,...
Am in Versace Bright Crystal today... and brought a few bottles of perfume in to share with my teacher friends!
Happy "Hump" Day!
Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Mentafolia- thanks to wolfie's sample I bough a BIG bottle!
When I first wanted to try samples, I went on ebay and searched under women's fragrances for "samples" and then to "mixed lots". There are quite a variety available and you can get a wide variety to...
I do that a bit every morning. My main problem is buying a new scent that I eventually like a lot better than my first purchases, which I now hardly wear. I am thinking of selling a few to finance...
I count a bottle as anything more than a mini- some of my bottles are much bigger than others.
I just realized today that my full bottle purchases has reached 10. Never in my life would I have thought I'd own 10 bottles of perfume. That is, my life BEFORE Basenotes (and I've only been a...
Back in my uneducated days before BN (lol), I bought multiple bottles of Charlie and Halston. Recently, the only perfume I have purchased twice so far is Angel Innocent. I suspect many more to...
Thanks to a sample of Ellen Tracy Twolf sent me, I ordered a bottle and it arrived today. Yippee!
