Many thanks, Lyuba, for sharing the petition on the Russian Fragrantica!
I fear Laurie Erickson may be a bit over-optimistic with regard to oakmoss and tree moss. The reports she refers to in her blog post are one article in Happi magazine, where it states: "The...
Thank you for the update! Hopefully signatures will pile up until the final decision takes place.
Sometimes an arithmetic problem is to be solved instead of reproducing letters/numbers/words. Never mind. :) Let me know if clearing your browser cache and refresh won't do the trick.

It's not the Captcha's little arithmetic problem (e.g. 10-3=7) is it?
Thanks so much, Grant!
teardrop, did you check the "I confirm .." box?
Signatures by non-EU citizens are welcome.
The regulatory authority tasked with evaluating public sentiment regarding the law is actively soliciting contributions to the debate by any...
As some of you know, the EU intends to completely ban Chloroatranol and Atranol. These chemicals are essential components of oak moss and tree moss, and without them, chypres and fougères may all...
Deleted so as to not cross-post. Apologies, I should have known better.
It is probably not different elsewhere. But eventually MEPs and EU Council will have to decide once the Commission propose legislation. I would much rather have the MEPs and pertinent Secretary of...
I agree with you, lpp. Still, I do think to initiate a petition is an honourable effort although I also doubt that it will yield any result, even if successful. As DuNezDeBuzier already mentioned,...
That's why it grew on me too.
Originally I had only joined Parfumo because of their Souk, which I still think is a terrific feature for trading perfumes.
Features and a meanwhile extensive...
Thank you from my side as well, Betsy!
Wearing what Santa bestowed on me - Fortis by Liquides Imaginaires
When I researched the PdT versions of Guerlain, Elena Vosnaki's defenition had been very helpful.
"Generally speaking Parfum de Toilette (PDT) is the equivalent of Eau de Parfum, perhaps a bit...
So do I and the better ones I like on myself, on others - regardless their sex. It is neither a matter of gender nor cultural background but merely a question preferences.
Indeed it does.
If you also like frankincense, then Cuir Velours by Naomi Goodsir would fit the bill. Beautiful soft leather with tobacco and amber.
You might like what Jean-Claude Ellena did for Hermès other than Terre d'Hermès, e.g. Eau de Narcisse Bleu or Un Jardin sur le Nil. His style is sheer and minimalist but not without depth and...
Another Alamut disciple here. I highly recommend to check out EdP and extrait. Depth and longevity are quiet another story with these concentrations (relative to the EdT).
Just the other day I sampled Fortis, and I am seriously tempted to purchase it. It is akin to Gao, less monotonous-nuclear but faceted instead - in short, it is superior to it.
That is a bit of a disservice to people who are interested in symbols, math, geography and a number of other abstractions.
Some people find the histrionics of some "poetic" perfume names to be...
Quite so! Besides, any news on the performance of this feature?
Not sure either. Went for Rive Gauche - my battered old 70s EdT still smells heavenly and its crispness seems to fit the bill.
Les Parfums du Soleil are worth checking out. You can find them in Casablanca, Marrakech or Tangier.
Abderrazzak Benchaâbane, their nose, has worked with Yves Saint Laurent - just to give you an...
I suspect this feature is not working for me either. Could someone kindly look into it?
You can order her samples directly from her: http://www.raniaj.com/echantillons/echantillons-samples-rania-j.html
Look into Atelier Cologne, a house that might deliver what you are looking for.
Missed last week but in synch today. :) Have a lovely Friday.
Reviving my ongoing lily quest
However, Fracas may be a close substitute. How about Truth or Dare? And there is Giorgio, the 1980s-bombshell.
I am having a (tiny) problem with my wardrobe too. I realised that the total, displayed in parentheses on each tab, does not update when I delete an entry, only when I add. Am I missing anything?
Good morning, fellow synchers!
My random sample pick is Oud Assam by Rania J.
Happy Friday everyone. :)
The IFRA is a lobby group and acts as such.
Abiding by the IFRA Code of Practice is a prerequisite for all fragrance supplier companies that are members of the IFRA. Some non-members choose to...
I found the Oud in most of these to be very challenging and funky smelling. The opening to Zafar for example smells like cheese in a barnyard and I kid you not.lol Gao has that medicinal hospital...
Would you care to elaborate?
I tried to find a sample, but couldn't. If you can point me to one, I'll get it.[/QUOTE]
It seems to be online-purchase only, except of some European countries.
Check out Essenza Nobile, they do...
Morning, dear synchies! :)
I wonder, is there a distinct style to English Perfumery? Anyway, tuning in with Penhaligon's Lily & Spice.
I so much enjoy following this marvellous thread, rubegon! I can relate to your experience with Nahema, PdT. And Rossy de Palma went straight on my test list. :)
You had sparked my interest already in the MPG-thread.
To your already impressive list, ScentFan, I would like to add Jasmin Kâma by Rania J. I have not sampled it yet but it reportedly is...
Good morning and happy synching! Today's perfumer is Christopher Sheldrake.
Hi all, If I wanted to submit a correction of an already existing entry, how would a go about it?
To my nose saffron smells of hay. http://www.basenotes.net/threads/255697-What-does-Saffron-smell-like
The aromachemical safraleine, however, can add a leathery tinge to perfumes.
Do also sample the extrait, which has been released in Sep. I haven't tried it yet but am very much looking forward to it. I like the EdP but prefer the extrait version of all other creations by...
I remember Elena Vosnaki recommending a fragrance named Chocolate Amber (Profumo.it/La Via del Profumo), which blends Chocolate and Vanilla with Tonka.
I second Washington Tremlett Black Tie. If you tend to prefer something more edgy, then you might like Eutopie No. 2
Parfumo's features and performance are state-of-the-art and superior not only to Basenotes. Also, its directory is pretty comprehensive; not least due to a rather smart crowdsourcing approach. ...
Fabulous memories, ladies! Synching with Jil Sander's No. 4. My very first fragrance back in the 90s.
If it was Tom Ford, then those three houses most likely are Gucci (1990s), YSL (early 2000s) and Tom Ford. We might add Tom Ford's version of Azurée. Famous Friday, though, would be a great...
Free to a EU or CH home:
Mäurer & Wirtz Tabac Man, EdT, 30ml bottle (unboxed), about 2/3 full.
PM me, if this cheap thrills takes your fancy. :smiley:
It is sunny, it is Friday ... have a lovely day!
Wearing Ça Sent Beau by Kenzo.
That was a bit snotty. I'm spraying Demeter Dirt at you.[/QUOTE]
Definitely the better looking alternative to Travalo. I read a some sort of test result, may be that helps. http://ziprage.com/style/sen7-fragrance-atomizer-review-win/#.UBerkGE0P2M
Good morning and have a lovely day! My SOTD - Anonimo Veneziano.http://www.jovoyparis.com/img/p/6/0/3/603-thickbox.jpg
Trying to import some Ligurian summer-vibe from the gardens of villa Hanbury to the cloudy tristesse around here.
Tough one. I love all of them but would go for Sycomore.
I would slip her one floral, and no vapid pretty stuff - maybe Tubereuse Criminelle, No 19 or Arpège.
Hi binkie, I'm on a rose quest too, though my path is down the darker side of the road ...
Anyways, recently I received a sample of Miss Charming by Juliette Has a Gun, which is a lovely and light...
Honey Blossom by Aftelier: linden/lime blossom, mimosa and orange blossom - translucent honey theme and a lovely frag.
Thanks for welcoming me too, delvilcat, bonsai and RHM.
Your favs and prefered layering frags for heat are inspiring, I have still so much to discover in the perfume universe.
Thanks for sharing, Brian!
Whether or not atomising spoils volatile notes, your way certainly is a no mess and easy to measure method I will adopt.
If I like a fragrance, I wear it - couldn't care less whom it is marketed at. :)
Elena Vosnaki always is a nice read on fumes. Here is her little compilation on GENDER BENDER.
Currently I am so hooked on NO 19 and EAU SAUVAGE. Also Guerlain has a wonderful exclusive fragrance for summer, SOUS LE VENT.
Womanity? Robin of nst pretty much spoke my mind:
"I found Womanity likable. But I don’t love it (...) I redesigned it in my mind: I made the fig greener, I toned down the sweet and the pink, I...
Though I share your good experience with iparfumerie, I have to correct your listing free shipping. They do NOT ship for free, at least if you order at iparfumerie.de. In fact, you won't fare...
Kouros was love at first sniff for me - a most beautiful (and wearable) animalic and leathery fougère.
I never associated public restroom with it.
Fitted shirts, I reckon. I would check out your shoes too.
I'm new to BN too and I hope it's fine to join in, Embers.
I would extent this list to include chypre (e.g. 31 Rue Cambon, Knowing, Mitsouko)
Isn't indole present not only in jasmine but also lilac, honeysuckle, gardenia and orange flower?
Anyway, you have covered some of what I love in perfume with this list. :)
Currently a vintage...
I hadn't noticed. LOL
Should I report this one too? Would be a lovely start here on BN - just complaining ;)
Thanks for your feedback. :)
