You may like this fresh lavender- Eau Illumineé by Del Rae or try some Penhaligons
I think you're right. I had to reapply to get the floral notes. The next day the incense is still lingering on my wrist.
Try Bond-Eau de New York, Creed- Royal Water, Chanel- 31 Rue Cambon that should get you started.
My new favorite floral is Wit- DelRae (LuckyScent). Light and unique, not too heavy. The scent of...
I was wondering if LuckyScent delivered to Australia. There's also First in Fragrance - the German company.
I am starting to think this reminds me of Guerlinade which I have. But if you want that experience- try this one.
I'm trying this now. Love the soft floral. Not too fruity. At first, a bit of incense but thankfully,...
Hee hee. I have to admit, I was impressed!
We love your posts, Jon! Keep them coming.
Still love my Black Aoud. I hope this hasn't been re formulated. I see mixed reviews. Does anyone know?
Expensive but so worth it. Maybe you could get a decant. Ambra Aurea- Profumum
My blog entry:...
Ellen DeGeneres talks to 88 year old Gladys. It's a stitch.
Something for you guys.
Violette Precieuse (Annick Goutal) was the first scent that brought me to BN. The next discovery was Iris Silver Mist (S. Lutens) which I didn't like at first sniff. But second try and I was smitten....
Tangy, green sassy floral
The problem with spraying clothes is that you're stuck with that frag until the next wash/dry cleaning.
Try better quality stuff.
MDCI, Profumum, Mazzolari, F. Malle, Serge Lutens, Montale,...
DelRae- Eau Illumineé is a sparkling light lavender scent that gets its citrus from bergamot. Try it, you will love it!
No argument from me.
The "Testicle Festival " was held in a nearby town recently. I was asked to go by some friends. I had no interest whatsoever. Barbaric.
I also detest bull fighting. Just...
I gather from reading reviews that the new bottle is as good as it ever was. One place you can get it is at LuckyScent.
I wondered about that, too. All those hot shop lights!
I have a parfum in a square tester bottle that is creamy and dry. Fantastic. Not sure how old. From Ebay.
sorry, I downloaded it again, but it blocked again!
I saw Raju, what a beautiful guy!
The one about the livestock is grotesque.
I have a feeling this is going to be difficult. Will watch soon.
I did it once on Ebay. Ordered 2 $15 spray decants. Turned out I didn't love it. Been stuck with it forever. No one wants it, plus it's illegal to sell decants. The lady said later I should have...
Juniper Ridge- Topanga Canyon; begins with gaseous clouds of pine-like diesel. Dries down to dank rubber. I forgot about it until I smelled the same smell as the inside of a canvas tent (lightly...
I got my EDT remaindered from TJMax. It must have been right before re formulation. What a shame. I must have gotten my parfum on Ebay. I just checked and it's evaporating badly! Eek! I have a tiny...
Always get the strongest, oldest version you can find.
You would love the parfum, I'm guessing. Especially if you like moss. I have an EDT from a couple of years ago. I have never NOT smelled peach. The new version must be odd.
I very well may. I don't think I can stand the suspense.
There are splits available on the 'Splits Board' now.
"Wood and Spice" is an amber oriented scent. Wonderful! I can almost guarantee satisfaction. 'Jardin D'Amalfi' is light white floral and...
Neiman Marcus tag. Luckily I own this vintage juice already in EDT so I probably won't open this although it is yummy!
Deeply etched. I regret it will be stored in the dark, however.
A sealed bottle of "Nuit de Longchamp" by Lubin maybe 1960's- 70's
'Jardin' is lovely but very floral. Also great is 'Wood and Spice'. Get samples and then go in on a split.
Houbigant- Aperçu EDP
Without a doubt- shopping from your computer is always a risk.
Jon, 'Forest of Dean' sounds fantastic. I hope I can go one day. But the birdsong video took me there in the meantime. So lovely.
Kewart- so happy you got that business taken care of! Nasty.
Ormonde Jayne-Woman EDP
Sometimes you get fooled by bad photos. I almost bought a fake before but cancelled it at the last minute. I'm happy I can get my money back. I should have known because of the lack of label or...
I agree. Sorry we veered.
Are you saying I shouldn't be involved? I did smell these. I smelled them on Purplebird. I also wore a few of them myself.
Since you keep bringing it up- there appears to be exactly ONE offering in the exorbitant $800 range, and that is for 100 ml. True, these are expensive. I...
I certainly don't need a lawyer to tell me whether or not a perfume suits my taste.
Edit- 2 hours later and 'Trapeze' still smells beautiful.
One man's opinion. Not enough recognition for Slumberhouse? Now I've heard everything!
Deadidol, your prejudice against this company/woman reminds me of a time when I was showing my new car to a friend. I had Frank Sinatra on the stereo. My friend couldn't understand how I could listen...
I'm not sure that a source of funds is relevant to the perfumer's achievement. I have a few Strange Invisibles and have been happy with them. I don't know about the lawsuit that keeps coming up here....
Chinatown by Bond no.9 is one to try.
Serge Lutens - Feminité du Bois
Shiseido is the spelling I couldn't remember.
Here's some info on samples.
It's been a while since I bought a bottle. Serge Lutens are best tried by samples from places like The Perfumed Court. The Posh Peasant also has lots of samples. Feminité du Bois is weird because it...
The glass is too thick, too. This didn't show up in the seller's pictures. I'm trying to work out a solution. Maybe a partial refund. It wasn't very expensive but...
This one is a fake. A copy of a Hoffman I believe. It was supposed to be a "vintage Czech" bottle. But they removed the label which would have said "Czech...
A green apple scent that does fall into the citrus category would be Dolce & Gabbana - Light Blue.
I''ll be in my Profumum Acqua Viva. I lately discovered the woody notes in it. Don't know why I...
Finding something to love can be tricky. It can take a long time. Better hunker down and prepare to try quite a few samples. One you may like is Serge Lutens- Feminité du Bois.
You might like Samsara. Chanel Bois des Iles is lovely with its gingerbread note.
What about heather? Does it have a scent?
I have a great picture of my bottles being filled at Caron in Paris. It's on my e-mail. Does anyone know how I can post it?
The red Czech one went on sale at half price so I snapped it up. The other Czech one (Vaseline) was so reasonable I couldn't resist. I still can't believe it's real deco. But, yes, I'm a bit of a...
I've looked at some other reviews and I see I'm not the only one who has trouble with these scents. Overall, I would say the effect is maybe not exactly one of 'shock'. That may be the intent or...
Profumum- Acqua Viva
Annick Goutal - Eau D'Hadrien, Nuits D'Hadrien
come immediately to mind. I'll probably choose from these.
I tried a few samples. Kumqat Wood was my favorite. Loved the citrus opening but was a little disappointed that it didn't seem to last.
Grev- for instance, is highly strong and medicinal for 4-6 hours before it becomes tolerably mellow?
one other, Rume, Sova, is compared to MKK? (Sorry, not a fan) no, as I see it, these are...
Surely there's nothing new in controversial fragrances. I've seen people go crazy for Kouros comparing it to the breath of Angels while others swear it smells like someone peed himself.
Small, Bohemian Czech piece. Gold scrollwork. (Brass)
I tried to photograph the mark. It's inside an oval.
Uranium or 'Vaseline' glass, Art Deco era. 'Made in Czechoslovakia' on bottom.
Opaline jade green. Carved glass stopper. 'Made in France' in raised letters and paper label on bottom.
Mauve and gold 'Devilbiss'?
What a life! I got to see otters in Minn. at the Itasca State Park. Never got very close, though. They are so appealing!
I wore Zahd from a sample from a kind BNer. It is pretty and unusual but I grew tired of it. It is sweet and I wanted to be rid of it after an hour. It was so strong it was almost impossible to...
Thanks again, Remik.
FYI- I'm currently trying 15 new samples from LuckyScent and so far I haven't found one that I like.
Just as you were certain you would love everything Josh makes, I suppose.
Thank-you, Remik. I am grateful for the chance to try these scents. I was not planning to order samples of them. Sorry they were not my taste
The thread-" What puts you off about a house" should be a clue. Yes, I was definitely put off by the misogynistic advertising. Coincidently, the perfumes were also a disappointment.
I wasn't aware that you had to agree to adore and praise every sample you review here on BaseNotes. Where does it it say that it in the by-laws? Believe me, if I had had liked these I would have said...
Slamming? I would like to have a chance to defend myself if you don't mind. I don't recall this incident and I don't believe it ever happened. Where is your proof?
Jive Hippo, what are your ulterior motives for loving this perfume even before you've smelled it?
I would like to mention that I was looking forward to reviewing these scents. I'm glad I was able to do so. It's too bad (I suppose) that we don't agree on whether they are wonderful or not. I had no...
I have reviewed 3 of these scents once before. I didn't love them but I didn't praise them. Is that excessive criticism? Frankly I'm puzzled that you feel I'm somehow being overly critical of this...
Ok, so there's no ammonia, maybe it's just acrid. It just didn't agree with me and we don't like the same thing. Jeez, I don't see what the big deal is.
Believe me, I know whereof I speak. I've lived with cats all my life. I'm sorry, but that is what it smells like to me.
It's humorous to me that my opinion is of such consequence. Who cares what a...
What sort of motive could I have for liking one house or fragrance and not another? Could it be that I am an individual with individual taste? You just don't happen to agree with me.
If I pick up...
I truthfully have have no knowledge of or interest in how the fumes are constructed. All I care about is the end product. It just doesn't make it for me. Maybe all the super-duper concentrated stuff...
Pear & Olive- Linden blossom with a plastic-tinged swamp note.
Baque- Amber and dust. Least offensive.
Jeke- Just like the first guy I ever kissed who was chewing tobacco- disgusting.
I tried these with PurpleBird. I will post my reviews shortly. I feel I should preface them by saying that I am sure Josh is a perfectly nice, well-meaning person and perfumer. I have nothing against...
<a href="http://youtu.be/_6479QAJuz8" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">
Heres a sweet dog vocabulary piece.
Yes, this would be interesting to know. I have a feeling it's a lot like signs of the zodiac- Scorpio? You should wear Shalimar and drink Piña Coladas. Unless you have blue eyes and work out on...
