    Re: Rum based fragrances

    If you are not averse to chocolate, Guerlain Gourmand Coquin might be worth a try.

    The weather is fine, but I am not, as I've managed to catch my husband's respiratory virus. To allay boredom, I've been going through my myriad tomato seed...
  3. Re: Have you ever disliked a fragrance and then realised it's the one you're already wearing?

    I had that happen recently with Byblos, a scent I wore quite happily many years ago. Perhaps the genie left my bottle (admittedly, the citrus was far less prominent than previously) or my tastes have...

    Re: Headaches

    I get scent-headaches fairly regularly (usually from other people's frags), the most recent of which was from Tom Ford Champaca Absolute. My decant now sports a diminutive skull and crossbones to...

    I'm testing a sample of Tom Ford Champaca Absolute. So far, apart from the beginnings of a scent-induced headache, I'm not getting much out of the experience.

    Re: Sotd friday 22 march 2013

    Nefret, I'm very fond of (the character) Nefret. Ramses too. So much so that I named a pair of my alpacas after them. I haven't read the last few books in the series, either, but I've reread most of...

    I received a bottle of Evening In Paris as a birthday gift when I was eight. I don't recall whether or not I liked the smell, but I remember feeling incredibly glamorous wearing it (of course, the...

    In celebration of the Equinox, I'm wearing BPAL Dragon's Eye (Dragon's Blood resin, lilac, lily of the valley, and galbanum). So delicate and pretty!

    30 Roses, the exhibit sounds enchanting! I am intrigued by your description of Peoneve, as I adore fresh florals. Yet another sample to add to the list.

    30 Roses and Twolf, you are making me feel my Evelyn deprivation most acutely. I ran out ages ago and have yet to find a suitable replacement.

  14. Re: Lily of the Valley - Muguet des Bois

    I'm not sure if it is a matter of idiosyncratic skin chemistry or simply a mislabelled sample but, on me, Hermes Eau des Merveilles has a prominent (and gorgeous) Lily of the Valley note. If I could...

    Hermes Eau des Merveilles.

    It is far more floral (mainly lily of the valley and, perhaps, a touch of hyacinth) and less citrusy than I would expect based on the description. Could it be a matter...
