  1. Re: Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle raising prices ;'(

    The € prices on the French version of their website seem not to have changed. Unless the website has not been updated, it's possible that the $ increase is due to a change in the exchange rate.
  2. Re: Price Hike for Editions de Parfums ... Again

    Looking at their French website, it doesn't look as though prices in € have changed. So, unless the website is not up to date, the price hike in $ is probably due to $/€ fluctuations.

  6. Re: Basenotes involved in Capitalistic fragrance marketing???

    I get your point Perfaddict. I'd just add that in a merged forum, you could see the gender of the members who responded to your BdP question so there would be no difficulty with getting both women's...
  7. Re: Basenotes involved in Capitalistic fragrance marketing???

    I don't agree with Perfaddict's view on this question. Why, for instance, would a lady's perspective on Tobacco Vanille be less interesting for a male reader ? In what circumstances would it be...
  8. Re: Cologne du Parfumeur by Guerlain - New Fragrance

    Yes, I have a bottle of Cologne du Parfumeur. I find it very pleasant and wear it especially after an evening shower, before going to bed. It's green, mildly floral and a bit musky. Not sure I'll...
  9. Re: Does Encre Noire smell anything like Uomo by LV?

    Well, I didn't have anything in mind, nor would I dream of hiding any pertinent thoughts! Generally, I don't like playing the "X smells like Y" game because, invariably, there will be differences. If...

    Re: One Malle to pick???

    It is of course impossible to pick out a given fragrance for you, nor should you go with the fragrance that is most often mentioned on a forum! However, I can tell you how I made my choice, if that...
  13. Re: Need help with my 15 Scent ultimate collection

    Hello JLouisMi,

    I've imposed on myself practically the same constraints as you, my aim being to get a perfect 10. My method seems a bit different from yours, however. If you go to my wardrobe and...
