  84. Re: 4 New Tom Ford Private Blends for Fall 2012 - and some other news

    I've only ever tested two of these - Cafe Rose and Lys Fume. Cafe Rose was a huge disappointment. Someone mentioned upthread that it's a poor man's Rose Oud (Kilian) and I entirely concur.

    I...

    Tom Ford Cafe Rose

    Meh. I got a sample at the Tom Ford counter at NM the other day, and am testing it for the first time today. It's a jammy mess on me - very little coffee. Hugely overpriced - I...

    Am testing Caron's Or et Noir on one of my wrists, and Serge Lutens's Douce Amere on the other. Loving both.

    ^Ooh that's amazing. Thanks for the heads up, 30 Roses. Fragrance Vials carry many of the Goutals that I want to test.

    Re: SOTD Saturday 15 September 2012

    Had a lovely afternoon at Neiman Marcus. I didn't buy anything, but left with a handful of samples.

    Amyris started off a tad oddly on me, in that my wrist was reeking of a fruity potpourri. The...

    Re: SOTD Saturday 15 September 2012

    Am fragrance-free - as of now.

    Am planning to head to Union Square later in the afternoon. I want to test Kurkdjian's Amyris and a couple of Guerlains at Neiman Marcus - especially Vega and Sous...
  90. Re: Serge Lutens - Une Voix Noire: new fragrance (gardenia perfume)

    Oops, that was a typo, and wasn't meant to be a question. What I'd intended to write - and the post has been edited now - was "Would THAT they shipped the bell jars to the States too", not " Would...

    Re: SOTD Friday 14. september 2012

    Am testing Amouage Lyric Woman.

    It's lovely, but to my untrained nose which fails to interpret nuances in notes, it smells a tad similar to Ormonde Jayne's Taif and Rosine's Rose Kashmirie.

  92. Re: Serge Lutens - Une Voix Noire: new fragrance (gardenia perfume)

    Thanks ladymurasaki. I wrote to them, and a sample is one it's way. :laugh: Can't wait to test it.

    Would that they shipped the bell jars to the States too. I just don't get why they can't - many...
  93. Re: Any of the non-oud Montales worth sampling?

    Cheers for all the responses.

    Have placed an order for Taif Roses and Tiare with The Perfume Shoppe. I love Ormonde Jayne's Ta'if and it'd be interesting to see how Montale's interpretation...
  94. Re: Serge Lutens - Une Voix Noire: new fragrance (gardenia perfume)

    Do you reckon they'd post samples to the States as well or it is exclusive to Europe? Because otherwise, the only way I can get hold of a sample is by placing an order with surrendertochance or TPC...
  95. Any of the non-oud Montales worth sampling?

    Till now my interest in the Montale line has almost entirely been monopolised by the Aoud range. In fact, I own two scents from the Aoud range in FB - Black Aoud and Aoud Rose Petals.

    I've only...

    I sampled Ambre today, and was very, very impressed. I've always loved the...

    Is this still in production, though? The only two stores which stock this in the States to the best of my knowledge are lucky scent and The Perfume Shoppe, and both only ever stock the Les Nombres...

    Re: your favorite rose

    It's a toss up between Guerlain's Chamade and Serge Lutens's Rose de Nuit. This could in all likelihood change, though seeing as there are an overwhelming number of rose based scents I haven't tried ...
