Nice to meet you! Looking forward to wearing my Dirty Rose Oud Extreme and Pentecost. :-)
Went to the San Francisco Indie Perfumers salon and bought P. Kiler's Pentecost and Dirty Rose Oud Extreme B. Fazzolari's Au-Delà, and Olympic Orchids Ballet Rouges and Amber. Oh, I also got a purse...
Wore no perfume this morning in anticipating a visit to the San Francisco indie perfumers salon - had a great time meeting Paul Kiler, Bruno Fazzolari and the lovely people from Olympic Orchids,...
Sorry to hear the extrait has been changed... I bought a 15ml bottle of the original release and it is awesome.
Aedes Iris Nazarena
Profumum Fumidus for me today - wanted something smokey and this is smelling fantastic in the cold Montreal air.
Profumum Fumidus today, it is smelling fantastic in the cold air of Montreal.
AG Musc Nomade for me today.
Just got word that the bottle of Nasreen I had pre-ordered has arrived from France. (It is a custom Micallef fragrance for Parfumerie Nasreen)
I get a lot of birch tar from Fumidus as well.
Onethinline, I get a lot of whiskey from Oud 27 too. Nice frag. I had ordered a bottle of Nasreen (custom scent by Micallef for Parfumerie Nasreen) and just got a mail today that it has arrived...
CdG Black... it was a good day.
Mona di Orio Cuir
I will take 20ml of Sancti, thanks!
I definitely want to smell it - not that I'm expecting it to be fabulous or anything, but I like Olivier Cresp and I like macaroons.
I have 2 of those 5ml minis… I didn't think it was all that exciting. Assuming I remember to pack it, I will bring my Nombre Noir to the SF Artisan perfume expo for you to smell it PK.
Wisteria is my birthday flower (it always blooms for my birthday) so that's the one I want to smell, but not holding out much hope since JM's are generally way too light for me.
Started off in Bruckner Aoud No. 1, just added on some Mona di Orio Oud for the evening.
My favorites are Jubilation XXV, Lyric Man and Interlude Man. They are each so different - incense for the XXV, rose for the Lyric, and herbs/smoke/incense for the Interlude.
CdG Hinoki reminds me of San Francisco… Zagorsk too.
I have very dry skin that does't hold a scent well… trust me, I am not skunking people out. I have asked my coworkers repeatedly if my perfume is too strong and they say they can just barely smell...
I have never seen them discounted.. they have a very tight distribution chain.
I would try layering it with Odori Iris or the Prada Infusion d'Iris, or Divine's L'Homme de Coeur (which is wonderful, I love wearing it in the evenings).
There was some kind of pricing error on Amouage at Fragrancenet last year… I got Amouage Dia 100ml for $55 as well. So I would count that, plus CdG Black (I think $125) and call it a day.
I spray more than that… probably closer to 2ml per day. But of course at 550+ bottles, I am more than set for life, except that I don't buy my perfumes with the intention of using every last drop. ...
Bruckner Aoud No. 1
Mona di Orio Vanille, Musc and Ambre...
Micallef Denis Durand Couture - yum!
I have the Irish Leather and would very much like to get the Italian Leather too... hoping they get a North American distributor soon.
I had a vague plan to buy only 4 new bottles this year, that lasted about 3 weeks... so far I have purchased 6 bottles and 2 decants. So much for that plan!
Mona di Orio Ambre, Musc and Vanille

Started the day in CdG Artek Standard, have switched to MFK Absolue pour le Soir now.
Started the day off in CdG Artek Standard, now enjoying the evening in MFK Absolue pour le Soir.
We have 3T here in Montreal, but there is alas no tester of this batch, so we can't smell it yet. Will try back in a month or two.
I have smelled Realoud and Realoud Feral... they were very fecal to me and quite unwearable. I guess I prefer fake oud. :-)
Songe d'un Bois d'Été.
Kalli, that electrical situation is critical. Is there any way you can cut power to your entire unit and call the public utility to alert them to the situation? Seriously, the building could burn...
Just ordered Amouage Ubar.
Black Oud was much more smoky on me than Incense Oud. If you really like smoke, then that would be a plus. Personally I find Incense Oud to be a more pleasant and easier wear.
Fougere Bengale was a bit much for me, but I really liked Aziyade, Wazamba, Ambre Russe and Cuir Ottoman.
I have had a couple go bad that were probably 15-20 years old, but out of 500+ bottles, that's not too worrying.
As Nan Kempner once said in response to how much she spent on fashion, "More than I should have, less than I wanted to." That pretty much describes my perfume habit, although I am definitely not...
I got to smell a sample of Eau de Frolich No. 3 and it's great, has a wonderful cassis and incense vibe. I hope Luckyscent or Aedes takes up the line. Meanwhile, I would love to sniff the other...
Wore Kilian Musc Oud today, switching to Back to Black for the evening.
I have their original Violettes de Toulouse scent. Cute packaging, like a little hat box with violet flowers on it. It smells just like candied violets to me, with a bit of greenness in the...
Just signed up for the Montechristo split! Sounds like a great scent.
Hi, could I please have a slot on the Masque Milano Montecristo split? I have a US address you can mail to. Thanks!
Waiting for the split to fill on TF Tobacco Oud, would also like to sample the new Masque Milano scents and Profumum Sorriso. Possibly a bottle of Cape Heartache.
Someone in the comments section of NST on this post said the Dior Exclusifs will be having a 20-25% price hike on this Monday Jan 13. If you plan on buying any now would apparently be a good time.
I love it and wish they hadn't discontinued it. It smells great on my SO.
Another vote for CdG Black.
I think Luckyscent has them, that's where I bought my bottle of L'Homme de Coeur.
Micallef's bespoke for Parfumerie Nasreen, called Nasreen. It is a rose, saffron, honey and oud scent. Won't get it for another 2 months (it was on pre-order) but looking forward to it.
Not on Tribute, but had two leaky Homage bottles.
I am going to order Micallef Nasreen to kick off the new year in a few minutes.
Guerlain Mon Précieux Nectar
I like the new Etro Messe de Minuit better than the original, which had too much of a moldy book smell for my taste.
I chose something beautiful and that won't compete with the food... Mona di Orio's Violette Fumée.
I like to have backups of those I really love, since reformulations and discontinuations are so rampant nowadays. Currently I feel like I have enough of everything I really love and am only buying...
Kilian Black Oud
My limit is around $350 USD. More than that and I have to think real hard about how much I love it, and only 3 bottles come to mind that exceeded this limit, out of a collection of over 500.
Having a friend bring me a bottle of SL Vierge de Fer when she visits over Christmas.
Tauer PHI Rose de Kandahar this AM, TF Tobacco Oud for the evening
I really like Odori Zafferano.
Just got back from a buying trip to San Diego. Brought back:
Nuit Etoilee edp
SSS Wood Violet
Micallef Rouge 2
Hi, can you please put me down for a Tobacco Oud split?
The longevity on this was excellent (12+ hours) but sillage was quite low. I liked it a lot but was hoping for more volume.
Ordered the new PHI Une Rose de Kandahar from Andy Tauer
Amouage Gold woman
The Lyric extrait did not seem any more potent or special than the edp to me.
I have not tried the Epic extrait, but I was underwhelmed by the Lyric extrait... it did not smell any better than the regular edp.
Apparently there is a limited supply of the particular rose oil used in this fragrance, so he can only produce as many bottles as he has ingredients for... hence the limited edition possibility.
Micallef Night Aoud
I like the AG Rose Absolue better than the Montale Highness Rose... Micallef Rose Extreme is fabulous too.
My most wanted right now is Tauer Rose de Kandahar and MDCI Cuir Garamante.
Rundholz - total blind buy, had never even heard of it, but BF smelled it on a trip to Germany and just knew I would like it. He was right!
Micallef Night Aoud for this evening.
The other travel spray scent is Fourreau Noir.
Stoned was my scent for today. Happy Friday!
MDCI Promesse de l'Aube
Just spoke to Franco at Luckyscent, he said the higher price is due to the fact that these two new scents are going to be 75ml, not 60ml, and that the previous fragrances in the line will also be...
AG Encens Flamboyant, Profumum Olibanum and Tauer Incense Extreme - all of these are strong frankincense scents.
I just smelled this at Etiket in Montreal. It is a very good quality patchouli scent, did not get any strong chocolate aspect. $125 CDN for 30ml, not sure if they ship outside of Canada.
SL De Profundis
Great to be back! SL De Profundis today.
I normally spray 8-10 times, so at 1ml per day, about 365 per year, plus the few extra I spritz on days I wear some to bed... maybe 400-500ml per year.
SL De Profundis
Ordered a new bottle of the Indult Tihota just re-released, plus samples of the CdG Blue series and OD Lapis Philosophorum.
I love Tihota and immediately ordered a new bottle. Very excited about this re-release.
For spray bottles that don't have a cap, is there something I should do to protect from air getting into the bottle, or is this not really a problem?
I see that Nordstroms has the Tobacco Oud decanter for sale on their web site now.
That is so awful iivanita! I am so sorry for your bad experience.
Today I am wearing Le Rivage des Syrtes by MDCI.
This is one of my favorite frankincense scents... it is so uplifting and calming. Quite spiritual for me.
Thank you Twolf! I am enjoying Rivage des Syrtes today. :-)
Wearing Profumum Arso and L'Antichambre Le Message Oublié today on a side-by-side comparison... lots of similarity, although Arso is sweeter/woodier and Le Message Oublié is incensier on me.
I bought the following at the LA Scentsation event on Saturday hosted by the Perfume Posse team: L'Antichambre Le Message Oublié, CdG Black, MDCI Le Rivage des Syrtes, Jovoy Les Jeux Sont Faits, and...
L'Antichambre Le Message Oublié, CdG Black, MDCI Le Rivage des Syrtes, M. Micallef Denis Durand Couture, Jovoy Les Jeux Sont Faits
Wearing Profumum Arso and L'Antichambre Le Message Oublié to compare the two today... they are quite similar, although Arso is a bit sweeter and woodier, I get a bit more incense from Le Message...
I tried a few... I concur with those who compare them with Arquiste and Agonist. Not my style at all.
Sampling Jovoy Les Jeux Sont Faits today... nice sweet/spicy gourmand.
CdG Black - love it! Sweet incensey drydown on me.
