    I have no idea what's going on, but I'm enjoying watching it play out! Happy Friday everyone!
  88. Re: Bravanariz: new natural perfume line from Spain (news from Pitti)

    I just got three samples (Cala, Bosc & Muga) in my latest order from Bloom and wow these are different! I've only tried Cala and Muga so far. Super herby and "scruffy" (sandy, dusty, dessicated...
  89. Re: Penhaligon are discontinuing English Fern & Douro

    That's a real shame as Duoro is one of my favourite "power" fragrances. I wear it to work when I have a particularly important meeting . English Fern I always wanted to love and never clicked with me.

    Re: Synchronized Fridays 2019

    Perhaps unimaginatively, I'm wearing Cocktail by Lush, which is one of my favourite scents but that somehow doesn't work it's way into my rotation very often. It's a bit brighter than I would usually...

    Guilty admission - I had to look up who this was! And as I was a small child in 1982 I'm going to pass.

    Re: Do You Prefer A Certain Bottle Size oz’s?

    Same for me too and pretty much for the same reason. I have a few 100ml bottles, but that's mostly because that's the only size they came in and I liked that fragrance enough to justify the larger...

    Re: Synchronized Fridays 2019

    My initial thought was also patchouli, but I don't have much with that as it's not one of my favourite scents and I synched with that recently.
