  1. Re: New Fragrance: Hermes L’Ambre des Merveilles

    I bought a bottle of this over the weekend. It has more warmth and depth than the original, imo. It's also a little bit sweeter, although it isn't an overly sweet vanillic amber. It retains many of...
  2. Poll: Re: It was love at first sniff, but now you dislike it. POLL.

    My tastes and cravings seem to change fairly frequently. There are very few that I once loved and now actively dislike. I may have grown tired of some, so I keep them around, just in case I suddenly...
  3. Re: Tons of new releases for Mothers Day - Anyone try any of these?

    Chance eau Tendre is great if you love the ubiquitous fruity floral, like AntonPan said. Nuff said. Canturi is billed as an "oriental woody chypre". Seems like a case of too many classifications to...

    Thanks for reporting! Sniffa is always a lot of fun. I especially enjoyed the addition of Katie Puckrik to the line-up of Saturday speakers.
  5. Re: Chergui - more on the masculine side, feminine or perfectly unisex?

    Absolutely unisex. As are most SLs. In fact the only one that my son has rejected (among those that he has sniffed) was Nuit de Cellophane. He didn't say that it was too feminine, but I suspect that...

    Re: Bond No. 9 for Younger women?

    Agree with perfumegirl. The list that she provided has many of the most popular ones too, so I don't think that you could go wrong with any of those. Bryant Park (rose-berry-patchouli with a touch of...
  7. Poll: Re: Favorite women's or unisex Penhaligons fragrance

    Nothing by Penhaligons has caught my attention until I tried Amaranthine. I tried it and immediately ordered a bottle.

    Re: Profumo Samples: Nostalgie's group

    I received my package today and before I saw this thread, I opened it and spritzed Hindu Kush. I promise to try L next. But I just want to say that Hindu Kush is exquisite. I have been sniffing my...
  9. Re: Samsara Parfum

    I bought an older bottle on ebay (don't know exactly how old, but it was listed as older and it looked it). The scent is just gorgeous. I haven't tried a newer version, so I can't compare. The edt...

    Re: What Perfume Does Your Mom or Dad wear ?

    My mother wore Givenchy L'interdity primarily and at times, L'air du Temps. She also wore No 5 a long time ago. Sometimes a Gucci fragrance here and there. These choices definitely influenced me, as...

    Re: Come Spring Fling with us

    I agree with everything you just said. So sorry that you missed Chandler's talk. Too bad that wasn't turned into a video! He was marvelous.

    Thanks debbborra for the recap!
  12. Re: Part 2: La Via del Profumo's samples -- Impressions

    Testing African Night and I appreciate having Asha's impressions. I keep smelling a citrus, wood, floral accord and only when I read the above did I get the association to furniture polish. It's not...
  13. Re: Part 2: La Via del Profumo's samples -- Impressions

    Due to illness over the last few days, I have had to be very careful with scents, as they either smell altered or make me nauseous. Interestingly, two of these have not had this effect on me. Bazaar,...
  14. Re: La Via del Profumo's samples -- Impressions

    I think a discussion forum would make this much easier. It would allow us to start threads on individual scents more easily, wouldn't it?
  15. Re: La Via del Profumo's samples -- Impressions

    I am still very curious about African Queen Pink Panther. As I noted in my post a few days ago, I thought that I smelled Karo Karounde, which makes me think of slightly rotting flowers and leather. I...
  16. Re: La Via del Profumo's samples -- Impressions

    Second night of testing:

    I have Karo Karoundè on one hand and African Queen Pink Panther on the other. I suspect that AQPP is the one that features Karo Karoundè, which is an odd note indeed. My...
  17. Re: La Via del Profumo's samples -- Impressions

    I got home tonight to find my lovely package of samples. I decided to restrain myself to taking a few quick sniffs of a couple of single notes then doing a full-blown testing of Holy Water. So, for...
  18. Re: Has anyone sampled/purchased PG Drama Nuii

    I got a sample from Luckyscent and liked it, but didn't love it. That said, I had the impression that I needed a decant to spray it rather than sample it from a 1 ml vial. I think I would have...

  22. Re: Bravo Channel "Real Housewives of Orange Couny" shop for fragrances [2:19-min. vi

    Perfect description. "Yes, I'm a warm person" spoken in a flat, robotic tone by an overly made-up, unemotional, plasticized automaton.
  23. Re: Really old perfumes belonging to my Grandmother

    Wow, some real treasures in there, even if a few are empty. Always interesting to find out what loved ones wore in years past. Vintage Vivara is a treat and it is completely different from what Pucci...

    Hello Potiron

    I absolutely love your explanation. And I adored Peanuts as a kid. I should remember to watch the specials, particularly the Halloween one.

    Re: sexy everyday perfume

    I agree with the suggestion for Chanel No 5 eau Premiere. Sexy but light enough not to overwhelm those around you. Chanel No 22 might also be nice if you can get ahold of some. It is available in...
  30. Re: All Invited! ♥ ♥ ♥ Sniff 'n' Speak Saturday, January 3, 2009 ★★★ ORIENTALS

    Wore a touch of Ferre 20 in the morning. More of a floriental than a straight oriental, but the sandalwood and vanilla in the base definitely give it an oriental feel. Switched over to TF Amber...

    I assume that you are speaking of the women's version and not pour Homme. I tend to wear Rive Gauche in warmer weather, but I would not hesitate to wear it year-round. It is a classic floral aldehyde...
