I prefer Basenotes to Fragrantica for a variety of reasons but I think any site can be prone to manipulation by pranksters and self-replicating trolls. Even Basenotes' SOTD feature seemed to have...

There's no telling how something will smell on him before he actually tries it. Give him some samples from your wardrobe. That will also give him a chance to make sure the bride likes it too.

I think it's likely best to order from FiF if you live in Europe, but mostly because it's better for the environment. I've always had stellar CS from both sites. I do like the free sample sprays...

Claudie Pierlot Mon Premiere - Indian spices with a touch of stank and a camphorous edge
What an enjoyable performance - thank you for posting it KBE.
Difficult piece indeed! About 20 years ago I took my son to the Hollywood Bowl to see Van Cliburn play Tchaikovsky’s First Piano...
Could you have been a little hasty when listing this item, and again when trying to resolve the seller's complaint?
If you had the 75ml fill that would account for the seller's impression that it...
99% of the time all I care about is the juice. I've bought maybe four bottles I didn't need because I was drawn to the bottle and I found them discounted. One of them, a hand-painted Micallef, I...

Happy New Year!!
I'd prefer that persons voluntarily consider rethinking the vocabulary they use but I don't always get what I want. Insinuating that my choice of scent or how I smell is something best avoided,...
It's here: Items for Swap You'll be able to PM members who have threads there that list their items to trade but you won't be able to create your own thread until you meet the qualifications. ...
That's correct. Pesky postal regs!
As a former bimbo and current old lady I figured I may as well paste something here I've written in the past and add a little to it:
When I hear someone else say that a choice of words is hurtful...
You can call USPS during their business hours and speak to an agent. After explaining your situation they will check for tracking updates. They often have different info than what is available to...
Welcome to Basenotes Supergirl. Basenotes is a great place to discuss fragrance. I hope you have an interest in doing that. I ask because at this point, I'm wondering if your only interest is in...
I find myself doing that quite often. The instance that stands out to me most happened at Barneys though, not in a mall. It was quite busy and the fragrance manager allowed me behind the counter to...

My father shaves because his beard isn't very full. I wish he wouldn't. He take blood thinners and his hands shake - not a good combination.
Ellen Tracy EDP up for grabs. Produced in 2003. 1/2 oz - about 90% full. No cap or box.
By the way, tonight's geminid meteor shower can be seen live in about 20 minutes (5:00 pm PST). If you don't have a telescope handy, it's supposed to be shown live here:...
That depends. How much do you weigh?
When I see a price of €147 on the French site and $350 on the US site for the same item, it seems more is involved than actual costs. It feels like a general disdain for US customers by the House of...
I'm testing Wild Honey this morning and I do smell great - really great! If someone is like me and has issues with sinuses or headaches with many scented products I highly recommend they try this. ...

There's a few responses to this question in these threads:
I have some pieces of Palo Santo wood and it smells quite like the gaiac notes in Le Labo Gaiac, Micallef Gaiac, etc.
Maybe the PS oil is more velvety because it's obtained from the fruit instead...
I was under the impression that Palo Santo is also known as Gaiac.
Be prepared in case eBates isn't forthcoming with the 12% rebate.
They don't always pay a rebate if you've used a coupon code that isn't listed on Ebates.com.
They are only asking for some of their shipping cost: $5. It seems very reasonable to me.
Does the sale start now or on Monday?
Nice pics, thank you!
Thank you RedRaider! This line is new to me. I got one of their free sample kits for $5 shipping.
Happy Birthday Kumquat!!
Great, thank you!
I'm burning a Bruno Acampora Musk candle this morning. The scent is great but the throw is very disappointing. I'll be snuffing this one in an hour or so and sparking up an AG Noel candle in place...

Welcome chrisyx21! That stuff must be great judging by the number of posts you've made about it. Do you have a favorite fragrance too?
One of my more notable encounters include a visit to Saks in the South Coast Plaza mall several years ago. They were hawking the Bonbon box and kept calling the sprays 1/4 oz even though...

My whole family loved this. We can't agree whether Queso is moonwalking or once got this tail caught in a door.
The quality of this isn't very good but the message does come across:
Osmanthus is one of my favorite scents and I'd be thrilled to find products that smelled like the actual blossom. Sweet orange sounds good to me too. Gaiac wood, frankincense, vetiver, rice,...

Sounds like such fun! Thanks for sharing Hednic.
Maybe a suggestion could be made that the buyer state something about the item's provenance (I swapped for this in 1997 or I bought this at Barneys two months ago and it's the most recent...
Some people buy/sell/trade/split decants and bottles here: http://www.scentsplits.com/ I like that there's a search engine but there's no mechanism for feedback yet.
2Rybot: Is the reason you have yet to leave any feedback because the sales thread was deleted?

Bruno Acampora Nero is a must-try for someone who loves saffron IMO.
