    Re: Is civet a dated note in fragrance?

    Cool. Thanks! So, when you say early synthetics, what do you mean? (sorry if this info is elsewhere.) For instance, I love BaV in its original formulation. Would there be synthetics in that or was it...

    Re: Is civet a dated note in fragrance?

    Ah. Sorry to be picky, but classicism is very different than romanticism. ;-)


    Ah, again. ;-) I was speaking of time in the philosophical sense, not in the "we have time to live each day to...

    Re: Is civet a dated note in fragrance?

    I agree that the public is unlikely to appreciate it, as is posted several times in this thread. But, as a musician, just had to comment on the parallel with a Penderecki atonal work. Civet is from...

    Re: Bal Versailles...anyone?

    I could be all from you, but I suspect it is more from the Michael Jackson fan community, who discuss it regularly because they want to smell like him. I'm sure that in the last three years there has...

    Iivnita: I wanted to answer this earlier. Yesterday, I wore the EdC to work (for the first time) and excitedly went around to everyone sticking my arm under their noses and asking, "what do you...

    Re: Basenoter Worst Nightmare

    Wow. ChickenFreak - that kiwi allergy sounds serious! There are two kinds of food allergies (as I understood it years ago when I got tested). One is an intolerance to a certain food that rears its...

    Re: Bal Versailles...anyone?

    Awww... don't go. It won't. Not everyone loves this fragrance and it will go back to normal, if not stay normal. ;-) Have you checked out the sold page for bal a versailles on ebay? There's lots and...

    Re: HELP! Stopper stuck! Suggestions?

    That was helpful, thanks! But, didn't work either. :-(
    I will give it a break for awhile and probably try again tonight.

    Re: Basenoter Worst Nightmare

    Shoot. I wrote a post last night but something happened to it!

    Just wanted to say that I am that sensitive also. I have tons of allergies, to the point that I carry around an epi-pen. Allergies to...

    Re: HELP! Stopper stuck! Suggestions?

    Thank you! I did not know this. I assume the quarter turn seating the stopper is clockwise? And to twist off is counterclockwise? (Interestingly, in a post I found on the internet it said to turn it...

    Thanks all!
    OK, I've tried running hot water over the neck/stopper (with it upside-down as suggested above) to melt the oil. Then put ice on the stopper to try to shrink it a bit. Pulled up with a...

    Yes - serious, not sarcastic. Just responding to what seemed to be real sadness and frustration on the part of the poster. And since, as he said, he is not there that much, it seems a small matter to...

    Re: Basenoter Worst Nightmare

    1. Call ahead and have her leave the area when you are there.
    2. Ask her to please take an antihistamine the days you are scheduled to be there (have her see an allergist). It is not fair for her to...
