Commando by Smell Bent
The Perfume Shoppe in Vancouver has a few of them. I purchased Ambre Sultan and Louve (don't remember the price), and I know that they, at the time, also have Daim Blond, Chypre Rouge and some...
Helmut Lang Cuiron
anyone tried Demeter Patchouli? considering the line, it will probably ultra light.
Divine's L'homme de coeur.
You might want to try: Cumming the Fragrance
From the website: Base notes of leather, peat fire, highland mud, burnt rubber and white truffle ground the scent with rugged sensuality, while the...
Holt Renfrew carry all of F Malle line including Vetiver Extraordinaire and the latest one Dans tes Bras. You could also find all of the Tom Ford Private Blend and Jo Malone there. Naz from The...
Just for fun: which movie scenes reminds you of a certain fragrance?
For me, Boby Peru's raunchy and dangerous seduction to Lula in Wild at Heart represent ELDO Vierges et Toreros perfectly.
On my skin, after the top notes disappears, Dans tes Bras smells exactly like when I shampoo my dog using one brand I can't even remember. Perhaps it is the combination of the shampoo and the wet dog...
Vancouver has all of Tom Ford Private Collections, but as of today, the table is without its own SA. The main perfume SA told me HR is hiring for TF line. She will give me a call when they will give...
Happy fasting for fellow Muslims! Speaking of which, when I was in Indonesia last year, the local Muslim perfume oil vendor suggested me to wear Amber oil..which according to him 'so that you will be...
I'm almost sure I saw it at my local perfume store ( www.theperfumeshoppe.com ) when I was there last week.
Great news! I can't wait to sample Eau de Liane, his new but unreleased creation for L'artisan as part of the travel series.
Another vote for Santal de Mysore followed closely by Borneo 1834. Both are a revelation to my jaded nose.
hmm..this reminds me of this scene from a shopping centre in Jakarta, Indonesia taken last year when I visited the place.
Etat libre d'orange's Vierges et Toreros- very sexual with a touch of skank leather. The complete opposite of the refinement of Daim blonde.
Gap Grass- but they discontinued this a long time ago.
Lagerfeld Classic is one of the powderiest scent I've smelled. I believe you can get this cheaply too now.
I'm Indonesian and I don't normally wear 'sweet' fragrance, I much prefer woody and leather. However, when my mood is right, I'd wear these sweet ones: Rochas Man, Serge Lutens Chergui, SL Fumerie...
Caron's Le 3eme Homme
How much is SDV and Bois d'armenie at La Maison Guerlain ? I am contemplating on getting one or the other thru a Parisian friend of mine.
(I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes)
in Downtown Vancouver' Holt Renfrew , November 2, 2007.
from the post-card:
"..Don't miss this exciting opportunity for...
Another vote for the very comforting and quietly smoky Guerlain Bois d'armenie. For smelling the unknowns, I would probably want to smell all the Parfum d'empire line and from Serge Lutens, Un Bois...
Indeed, the first time I smelled it from the bottle I nearly puked causing my eyes all watery. Yikes. I wouldn't even put this on my skin if someone paid me. On me it smells not as naughty as the...
are we talking Etro's or Lorenzo Villoresi's Sandalo?
Secretions Magnifique is so sinister it is fear-inducing. Think Mr. Dahmer. Okay, this is more than just slightly.
here you go:
In French but no subtitle though.
My current 5:
Santal de Mysore
If memory serves me right, from reading perfume blogs, it will be Chene's turn this year.
I had a minuscule decant of BO and I really like this, definitely my next SL purchase.
Borneo is a very evocative scent to me- it smells dark, tropical, languid yet very opulent. This is my favorite of SL line. Followed by the sexy Santal de Mysore and mysterious Fumerie Turque....
I finally tested Diptyque Essence of John Galiano room-spray and use it as a skin spray- This one's a winner! I found it so intoxicating, in a good way of course, very woodsy and smoky and I also...

I was there today (Tuesday) not expecting to see Mr. Malle, but he was there preparing the gala opening. We ended up chatting for an hour- me with 2 other scent buddies- and of course, he signed my...
yes they carry the whole line- minus French Lover- complete with framed photographs of the perfumers and those funny 'scent booths' (which is surprisingly low-tech),
Does anyone know what time he's coming by? Also Etienne de Swardt, the guy behind Etat libre d'orange will make an appearance the same day- today- but I don't know exactly when.
I'm not sure if you still haven't receive a reply from FM, but based from my experience buying their stuffs online, I have no problem receiving it here in Vancouver- granted it was a year ago, but my...
Never been to Hawaii, but if Hawaii = pineapple cocktail, then perhaps L'artisan Ananas Fizz will do the trick.
I got this flyer of Holt-Renfrew's new store downtown opening late May '07, and what do you know? They will carry Etat libre d'orange, Ineke, and............ Frederic Malle too! Looking forward to...
It should be under "Royaume Uni" UK instead of "Angleterre" England.
LP Mure et Musc Extreme
I concur with Borneo 1834! This is my favorite SL by far and for me personally, it conjures up this image of a quiet and languorous night in an old Javanese house with rustic teak furniture, heirloom...
They have gift-set extravaganza at Winners - Robson&Granville- when I went there yesterday. In the men's section I saw boxes upon boxes of Bulgari PH, Obsession Night, Grey Flannel, Joop Rococo,...
A friend of mine is going to Paris and I am contemplating to buy this Parfums d'Empire perfume blind in my quest for the ultimate leather fragrance. For the record, I like: Dzing! (especially the...
theperfumeshoppe.com has it- and Fumerie Turque too.
L'etat, c'est moi
Parfumerie Generale Musc Maori, Very chocolatey and creamy.. my teeth almost hurt smelling this.
Passage d'Enfer's light and gentle incensey smoke could lift me up anytime.
It was called Ujung Pandang, but they changed it back to Makassar in early 2000's.
This is exactly what my friend told me: You smell like a gentleman's club!
I was wearing Helmut Lang Cuiron that day.
L'eau by Diptyque is supposedly made from a 16th century formula- this should be the closest thing to a medieval scent, perhaps, though I've yet to try it myself.
Parfumerie Generale Musc Maori
adding the list:
HERMES Boutique - Burrard and Alberni. Went to try out the Hermessence line a few weeks ago, and the kind SA gave me 2 X 4ml samples of my choice. I chose Poivre Samarcande and...
I have to agree with Shifts, in fact I was quite surprised when I first tried Tumulte on how similar it is with CDG Kyoto. But after side by side comparison, I found Kyoto to be deeper and darker,...
Diptyque Virgilio.. too herbaceous for me. :-/
Absolutely, PN smells really really similar to CDG Sequoia.. that's why I ended up not getting PN.
you should definitely try Parfumerie Generale's "L'eau Rare de Matale" .. a quiet and soft black tea with some woody notes and a touch of musk. It doesn't last that long on my skin, but I'm hoping in...
Another vote for Bois Farine, very unusual yet very comforting.
I can't remember exactly- something like CDN$110 or something? I remember when I saw the prices I said to myself, I could get it online from the States for cheaper. They also have a few Diptyque...
In Vancouver, you can get the almost complete Comme des Garcons line fragrances at Richard Kidd store in Gastown, but the mark-up on the prices are just too high, I didn't bother to purchase it.. but...
Catherine Deneuve (to her one-time boyfriend, after meeting him again 30 years later) : still wearing Eau Sauvage?
Gerard Depardieu (the ex-boyfriend) : Yes, I'm the faithful kind.
in "Les Temps...
I remember Moschino pour Homme having a very strong nutmeg note.
F. Malle 'L'eau d'hiver'
Downstairs Holt-Renfrew on Granville has Armani Prive collection, Hermes, and Jo Malone to name a few. The Bay across the street has several Annick Goutal. Afterward, walk yourself a few blocks down...
Batman would go for the rubbery note of Bulgari Black
Christian Lacroix - Tumulte pour Homme
not for the faint of heart: Montale Oud Cuir d'Arabie
do you have F. Malle's fragrances at your local Barney's?
Diptyque Tam Dao
SL Daim Blond
I got the venerable Chergui today from theperfumeshoppe.com, the best thing is the price : only Cdn$ 110 , but you have to call their number to have them shipped to you. 1 877 299-8500
I actually ask my friend in London to locate Kyoto too- from searching the net I found this address:
Dover Street Market
17-18 Dover Street
