    Re: Fragrances of the World 2012

  3. Re: Top two fragrances from Guerlain, Chanel, Dior and Hermes

    I sampled LIDG and loved it so much I purchased a full bottle in January. Unfortunately the fragrance did not match the test bottle. It was a lot darker and totally lacked fragrance. We did a side by...
  4. Re: Top two fragrances from Guerlain, Chanel, Dior and Hermes

    I don't have access to vintage formulations - so yes, current offerings. There is so many to choose from and I try to sample a new fragrance two or three days each week. I'd like to begin with a few...

  10. Re: Favourite local Aussie perfume shops that others may not know about?

    Vendome at 12 Castlereagh St Sydney is a great place to visit. Extremely friendly staff and they actually offered samples before I enquired. They carry Puredistance, as Xscent indicated, and they...

    Re: Who would wear Black by Comme des Garçons

    Apologies if I offended anyone with my initial observations, none was intended and I'll be more careful with 'flippant' comments. The fragrance toned down after eight hours and started to smell soft...

    Who would wear Black by Comme des Garçons

    I tried Black by Comme des Garçons today and all I can say is 'who would wear this?' I didn't realise that something that smells just like the birch tar liquor it tried in the north of Finland could...
  13. Re: Recommendations for visiting a perfume store while in Paris

    Many thanks everyone. I'll recommend Palais Royal Serge Lutens and Guerlain on Champs-Elysees. They are definitely tourists rather than perfume aficionados. I'm surprised that there doesn't seem to...

    Many thanks everyone and I'll search for Puredistance at Mecca and DJs. Does the Tonka Imperiale wear differently to a sample on a test card? The test card I took home smelt of pure vanilla and...
