    Re: The Girlfriend Challenge

    Seconding Bottega Veneta. S-ex by S-Perfume is a quiet leather scent that's very distinctive.

    Safran Troublant smells great, natural, and never overwhelming.

  3. Re: What scents do you trust in extreme circumstances?

    a) Chanel Cuir de Russie. Classic, but not overwhelming.

    b) Bal d'Afrique. Happy, noticeable, not overpowering, and will not offend.

    c) L'Artisan's Safran Troublant. It's mild and comfortable....

    Parfums MDCI Recommendations?

    So I've read that Parfums MDCI is supposed to be an old-fashioned house that makes classical perfumes. I hadn't tried any of them until I went to Osswald, where I got a beautiful bottle of Peche...

    Prescriptives' Calyx.

    Re: Powdery scents?

    Thirding Habanita. Not fresh at all though. It dries down into stale face powder and cigarettes.

    Obvious but great: Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere.
  13. Re: Need help finding a (slightly) more upscale version of a cheap scent.

    Try The Body Shop's fragrances. They're better, and not much more expensive.

    Re: Tubereuse Criminelle & Longevity

    Gasoline is an interesting way to put it. Hadn't thought of that before.

    I don't especially like Tubereuse Criminelle. To me it smells like a hardened bar skank chewing Doublemint gum.

    And the...

    Re: The Joy of Joy!

    OMG yes! I love animalic florals (try Divine by Divine), but this is my absolute favorite. I might go so far as to say it's my favorite perfume of all time. I have the parfum and the eau de toilette.

    Re: Favourite Chanel No. 5 Concentration

    Eau Premiere is the easiest to wear, especially for me at 24. It's the only one I have. I also like the EDP, because, as Le Grand Duc said, it's heavy and bombastic. I think Turin said it was...
  17. Re: The ones Luca Turin got wrong, your opinion

    Whatever. I love Calyx, Beyond Paradise Men (not women), and I like Tommy Girl, but I'd give it 4 stars, not 5. I think he dismissed Can Can by Paris Hilton (solid 3 star imo) just because it's Paris...

    Re: Worst fragrance note

    Strong herbal notes like patchouli tend to overwhelm a fragrance. It's surprising that I like Aromatics Elixir, because all of the herbs drown out the flowers. It's just amazingly done, though....

    What's your favorite Lutens scent?

    I haven't sampled too many of these, but they are fantastic: whimsical and using ingredients that are anything but ubiquitous.

    Here's my favorites:

    *Bois de Violette
    *Un Bois Vanille
    *Arabie...

    I concur, N-Tesla! Timbuktu is probably the most dignified woody perfume I've ever encountered. I smell primarily cedar, but under that it manages to layer both smoky wood and sapling wood at the...

    Re: Storage upgrade.

    My dad bought me a wine refrigerator to keep perfumes in. It works. Wine and perfume both need to be kept at approximately the same temperature.

    I would think an English gent might wear something quiet like Timbuktu. Leave the pompous scents like Azzaro to the Italians.

    See, Heat smells good at first, but then it gets this nasty metallic odor about fifteen minutes in that holds steady for about seventeen hours after the rest of the fragrance wears off.

    Re: Help a newbie pick an orange scent

    I think Givenchy's Organza Indecence is a nice off-kilter orange. It's very spicy with a strong vanilla note, but recognizably orange nonetheless.
