  1. Re: BN's Most Talked About Sampler - what's missing?

    He's not asking for your favorites. He's asking for most talked about. There are a few mentioned in this thread that are barely mentioned elsewhere on there forums.

    Good suggestions from...

    Re: I actually recognized a perfume

    Ever since seeing the movie, I've wished I could identify scents like Al Pacino's character in Scent of a Woman. That's actually one of the things that got me interested in fragrances in the first...

    Re: Cardamom, Cumin or-- Curry?

    A bit of a derail, but does anyone else get this vibe? That seems like an odd association to me, and I almost never hear people citing saffron as a note they like (but a few times I've heard people...

    Re: Removing a Stubborn Fragrance

    There's always steel wool!

    I remember reading somewhere a suggestion of using unscented deodorant, waiting a few minutes, then washing with unscented laundry detergent. Never tried it though. ...

    Re: L'Artisan Parfumeur - Breaking News

    Just because their boutiques are closed doesn't mean their stock will be evacuated from every storefront. There's a place here in Washington DC that stocks L'Artisan (Bluemercury) and I assume will...

    Yeah, seems you've decided, but I'll pitch in as well:

    Go for GIT as long as you've tested it well on your skin. For me the musky/ambergris note that kind of comes to the fore in the first few...

    Re: Big clouds of unique-smelling sillage?

    Good list, although you have Arabie on there twice, which may actually be appropriate for that strange, fiendish elixir.

    To me most amber scents have this characteristic of monstrous exotic...

    Re: I need some real Vanilla

    Serge Lutens has a nice vanilla, Un Bois Vanille. I haven't tried any of the ones in your shortlist though, so I'm not sure how it'd stack up.

    Re: Fragrance with dominant melon note

    Or perhaps Sean John Unforgivable, given that it's nearly the same thing to the undiscerning nose. And loads cheaper.

    There are Dyptique and L'Artisan boutiques on Marylebone High Street now. The Dyptique one just opened recently. I've had good experiences with the staff in both. I'm not sure how big or well...

    Re: Armani Code Summer

    This sounds like it will be a confused scent to me, a powdery, oriental/spicy, citrus, aquatic? It seems like it's defiling what I like about Code too, by adding an aquatic note. I guess I'll have...

    Try L'Artisan's Passage d'Enfer. I get the "old church and musty tome" vibe from it, and certainly nothing fruity. Reviews are pretty mixed though. I do find it to be somewhat linear, but it...

    I'm surprised it hasn't been suggested, but do try Armani Code. In a lot of places it's heavily overused, but it should be a great choice for you. Girls love it, and it's better suited for club- or...

    A lot of the above recommended fragrances are obscure or expensive, and only available online in most parts of the USA.
