Most compliments when wearing Flower Bomb.
SOTD - Guerlain Eau Allegoria Rose Magnifique. Feeling nostalgic. Have not been here in a long time.
Right off the bat, I would have to say Samsara, Coco Mademoiselle and probably Lolita (by the way, won't be wearing this one so much anymore because after being almost on my 2nd or 3rd bottle, my...
My Dad, who passed away 25 years ago, always wore Guerlain Imperial. His handkerchiefs and clothes always smelled like it. It was his signature fragrance.
My mother wore Femme when I was young. ...
Wearing Insolence today.
Oh, my goodness, no matter what the scent is like, the bottle just blows me away. It is beautiful.
Orazuli by Dupont - won in a contest here at Basenotes, bought another bottle at TJ Maxx. Actually wearing it today, soft creamy vanilla with a distant citrus by this time of the day.
Definitely Giorgio. Back in the '70's, I think, you could not go anywhere without being assaulted by clouds of stinky Giorgio. I remember sitting at a theatre surrounded by it and wanting to gag...
Wearing Love's True Bluish Light on this Monday.
TaoLady - congratulations, Grandma!
Diorella by Christian Dior. Lovely on this rainy, yucky morning. This was from a sample from a kind Basenoter ages ago.
A lot mentioned already, but wearing perfume since very young so these are the ones I remember buying multiple times:
Sometimes what I wear affects what I choose for the day. I have red accents today in my clothes, so I opted to wear Delices de Cartier.
Wearing EL's Sensous on this back to work day.
Tea Rose by Perfumer's Workshop.
O de Lancome in this sunny, hot day.
Tracy by Ellen Tracy
Long time no post, but here goes my unwanted/scrubber list:
1. Angel - too much of everything on me
2. Opium - scrubber
3. Fracas - smells like old socks on me
4. Michael - the tuberose is...
Arrived this week:
Fifth Avenue by Elizabeth Arden - blind buy because I smelled it on my sister in law and like it. It's a good day fragrance for work.
Flower by Kenzo - had run out a couple...
Shalimar on this chilly day.
X is for Xeryus by Gyvenchy
Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune. I do understand that it's a love it or hate it fragrance for many BN's. At first applying this, I always get the sharp grafefruit first, then it smells like mosquito...
Delice de Cartier.
Wearing EL's Sensous.
Some of my favorites: Samsara, Obsession, and Shalimar.
Moon & Stars on this day.
Missed the clue, back to the drawing board.
Blenheim Bouquet by Penhaligon is my guess.
Reached for Lolita this morning. Haven't posted in a while, life caught up with me, hello to everybody!
Like so many, really looking forward to a nice long weekend. Decided to totally bypass...
Champs Elysee on this still hot South Florida day.
L'Instant by Guerlain.
The bottle is a bit too much, like someone else said where do you put it so it fits in somewhat with all your other bottles without wasting space?
The scent, however, I tried in Vancouver (Holt...
They had such pretty bottles, that I do remember.
Ubu, glad to see you were spared. Twolf, sorry about your doggie.
Wearing L'Heure Exquise by AG.
Wearing Sensous today.
Did not get a chance to post yesterday but I wore Miss Dior Cherie from a sample I got last Saturday at Macy's. Upon first applying, I found it to be an explosion of...
String Strong Homme by Kesling is my guess.
Running a tad late this morning so I grabbed Orazuli which I love and get compliments on.
Congratulations to all the winners and admiration for Tang and her beautiful compositions....
My father, who passed away more than 22 years ago, only wore 2 perfumes all his life: Guerlain's Imperial Cologne and No. 4711.
My mother on the other hand wore many different scents through her...
Wearing Maria Amalia from a sample by a very generous B'ner (just a little bit remaining now...). This is a very pretty perfume which reminds you of a walk through the woods after it has rained but...
Hugs to Ubu and Musse. Congratulations to the Outlandishes!
I am wearing Un Jardin sur Le Nil from a sample I scored at Sephora on Saturday. I think I may have to buy a full bottle. I'm loving.
Totally busy this past weekend but did go with fresh on Saturday, wearing O de Lancome.
Congrats, Haunani. Excellent solve and excellent puzzle, KBE. I was thinking of going in a totally different direction...
Wearing Orazuli, a prize from one of our lovely Tang's contests. A delightful and much under-appreciated scent. Too bad it's been discontinued but if you see it at Marshall's or TJ Maxx worth...
Lolita Lempicka is my choice today.
Today, I'm in L'Instant by Guerlain and loving it.
Ava Luxe The Blanc.
Adrienne Vittadini for this Monday.
AG's L'Eau de Hadrien.
Sensuous by EL, a gift from my husband.
Wearing Daisy this morning.
I am wearing Violette de Toulouse by Berdoues from a sample I received last year from the lovely Twolf. It reminded me a lot of the scents from Spain for children. I loved it, sadly though as I...
Riannon, loved the video! The music is very compelling.
You are the master puzzler!
Some of my scrubbers have been mentioned thus far, while some of my favorites have also been mentioned. Heck, that's why we are all different.
Here are my scrubbers:
Angel (really wanted to...
I'm in a Champs Elysee mood today so that is what I'm wearing.
SMM, loved your post. I have always adored the scent of Bain de Soleil. As a young Cuban teenager, I always craved that glorious...
How about Simply White by GAP.
Thinking simple, how about Wild by Ralph Lauren?
I am going to guess Lalique pour Homme Equus by Lalique.
Habanita by Molinard from a sample from a generous BN'er. Love the vintage feel to this scent.
Aqua Allegoria Rosa Magnifica today. Yesterday I wore White Linen to go with my linen outfit!
OMG, you are so right, the first time I went to use my bottle of Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplemousse, I almost broke the top trying to take it off. Now I know better and have a second Aqua...
N is for Noa by Cacharel.
I keep trying for that bottle in row 6/9: In Heart Honey White by Estelle de Valrose.
I have tried looking for the one in Row 4 to no avail, dang!
I take my previous answer back and want to now go with Angel Heart Snow White by APY for Row 6/9.
By the way, Tang, as usual, you excel!
Glad to be beack, will post an update later.
Having been on for so long and having a slow day decided to check what was going on and I find my favorite is going on.
With all of your clues, Tang, I'm going to guess that Row 6/9 is White Witch...
Congrats, Mike, what a great milestone. I enjoy reading your posts.
Wearing Shalimar today.
I'm wearing Le Baiser du Dragon.
I guess I am a bag whore, as someone said earlier. I own over 20 bags (not counting evening bags) ranging from LV and Isabella Fiore to no name. Bags for me have to be visually attractive and I...
I'm way over 40 and see a lot of recommendations for fragrances that I have and wear:
O de Lancome
Obsession (did not see this one recommended but I do...
I love Barney's and Bloomie's in NYC
In Miami, I have to say Nordstrom, Saks and Sephora
In Spain, El Corte Ingles (always good for finding obscure fragrances made in Spain)
In Paris, any of the...
I never see much mention of the following:
Adrienne Vittadini - as Jacona said a very comforting scent
Je Reviens - timeless
O de Lancome - such a great summer fragrance
Dune - which I no...
Happy Holiday to those celebrating today.
Wearing Obsession for this pretty Monday. Twin sister with Nostalgie.
Hot Cologne by Benetton
Congrats, Haunani and Chaya, may you feel lots better today!
Running late this morning, I ran out the door without applying perfume. Realized it when I got to the office so I hit my stash of...
Good thoughts and wishes for good health to everyone!
Wearing CK Obsession today.
I went yesterday afternoon to my closest Nordstrom and they were wiped out. I then walked over to Macy's and the line was soooo long I decided it was not worth it for me.
Don't know whether I...
I love Joy! It portrays mature elegance to me and it has such wonderful longevity. I do not wear it in the summer in Miami, though.
Back from a long weekend (was off since Friday), I'm wearing my beloved Coco Mademoiselle.
Happy Birthday, Jillsy!!
AL's Firewood. I love this fragrance that reminds of Midnight Mass and Christmas wrapped in one.
Sadly, love it on others but hate it on me.
Happy Birthday, Leese!
Congratulations, Tigrushka ! I'm awed.
Wearing Insolence today.
Wanted something that I have worn forever today, so I chose Obsession. I do like it a lot on me.
Warm hugs to Lian and Veuve as you work through your feelings.
And a good Monday to everyone! Lian, I can't add much more than what everyone has already told you. Most of us have been there at one time or another in our lives and, truth is, it does pass.
OH MY GOSH! I'm so excited I did not even realize that my previous post was my 500th!!!
Welcome to new posters and good wishes to all those not feeling so good.
I'm wearing Love's True Bluish LIght tonight. Earlier I had worn Vanilla Peach.
Looks like a bummer day but I am very hopeful that we will start to see things turning around in the next few months. By the way, my husband has been looking for work now for about 4 months and...
Getting to the last 1/4 of the following bottles and I would replace:
AG L'Eau de Hadrien and Folavril
O de Lancome
Pretty, cool, dry and sunny day so I am wearing Daisy by Marc Jacobs.
AG's Heure Exquise today.
Joining all my buds who are wearing Shalimar today.
Such a neat thread. Definitely putting Navegar by L'Artisan on my list to try after reading that lovely description by JanAlways. Will also spray some Le Baiser du Dragon to see if I detect the...
Love: vanilla, amber, vetiver, rose, patchouli, sandalwood, orange, pinewood
Getting around to: tuberose (only L'Artisan's I can bear), tea, smoke.
Hate: carnations and most tuberose.
I would have to go with Pamplelune which I've been told does smell a bit like bug spray at first but then develops beautifully on me.
I layered today with Champs Elysee body cream and then spritzed Daisy on top. Somehow they complement each other.
I have not played like in forever because I have not been on much, but I'll take a guess:
Verte Violette by L'Artisan.
So many, I can't remember them all but a few I do are:
Kind of hard to come up with this since I've discovered so many wonderful scents this year, but here are my current 10 favorites, in no particular order:
Joy (from forever, wore it for my...
Working today but sooo slow. I'm wearing EL's Sensous, a Christmas gift from my hubby.
I love my Samsara, as well. Someone recommended Le Baiser du Dragon and I have that and like it a lot too, as well as Shalimar.
Wow, this is a great thread. I can relate to so many smells already listed..I am the type that certain smells give me the dry heaves immediately. I can add some others:
1. the smell of burnt...
Wearing Guerlain's L'Instant today, a birthday present. This scent has been described as girlie and young, but I find that after the drydown, the citrus disappears to leave you with a creamy...
