    Re: Chloé 'Eau de Fleurs, Néroli'

    Has anyone here actually liked Eau de Capucine from this line?

    Curious, because most reviews seemed to dislike it but I'm so tempted by the intriguing notes.
  2. Re: Which scents chicks dig/females love/blah blah blah

    I assume you mean fragrances and not types of cologne?

    But to answer your question, L'eau d'Issey pour homme, believe it or not. I received a sample with my normal bottle for women, sprayed on...

    Re: Today I Bought : - > February 2011

    I guess I "scored" a 100 mL bottle of Chanel no. 19 today for $60 USD. Not bad. But I hope to tighten my belt and aim to stop spending on frags for at least a year.
  4. Re: Unusually Beautiful Gourmands, Looking For, I Am.

    Perfect thread! I am myself just getting into gourmands and looking for good suggestions as well.

    Surprisingly, Max Mara's Max Mara is great. Very sweet and like a real lemon pie, only slightly...

    Re: Your Two Most Favored Perfumers.

    Hard to say. But I have yet had to struggle with finding anything unlikable with Bertrand Duchaufour and Keiko Mecheri.

    Re: The elusive Chanel no. 9

    Thank goodness. I knew I wasn't dreaming this! I wish so bad I can get my hands on a bottle. My memory is murky, but I remember how my grandmother always smelled very "Chanel-esque," (it was the...

    The elusive Chanel no. 9

    Basenoters, perhaps you can help me.

    My grandmother used to wear something called "Chanel no. 9." I am 100% sure it is NOT Chanel no. 19, or even Chanel no. 5. Apparently, according to my father...

    Re: The best green

    This is really helpful, thank you!

    I've been meaning to try no. 19 for years. This post just confirmed how much I should get it. But I haven't tested this frag on my skin yet, so I'll have to get...

    The best green

    Green-lovers, I need your help!

    I'm in search of a new signature scent after growing tired of my old one. My nose is still underdeveloped, so I would appreciate well-thought out recommendations...
  11. @Persolaise - My guess is that cumin, cinnamon...

    @Persolaise - My guess is that cumin, cinnamon and lime are not "dessert"-based (as in your typical sweet-foods smells). Rather, they're spices (cumin, cinnamon) with distinct pungent, earthy...
  12. Re: Complex, pleasant and not boring scent for the office from niche houses

    I would recommend Scarlett by Keiko Mecheri. Masculine, distinct but very polite -- stays close to skin. Reminds me of a fresher remix of rosewood, spice, tobacco, leather. I can picture a younger...

    Re: you guys really let me down

    That's the thing about fragrances. The very nature of them is personal. What some people think smells wonderful doesn't work as well on others, depending on skin chemistry, personal preferences, etc....
