Hello! I'm wearing Chanel nr 19 and I can't smell it because I've got a cold. But I'm sure that I smell good.
Rose Pivoine from Nicolaï today.
Hello! Rayny day here and I'm wearing Arpège.
Most Nicolaï scents that I have smelled have something in common, I'm just not capable to discribe them. They are round, filled and feels often drinkable, like peach juice or something but I don't...
Happy Sunday everyone!
I'm wearing Arpège today.
My husband used a nippers but that wasn't enough. He had so "saw" with a file in the metal and pry with a screwdriver and then he could twist the mechanism and take it off the bottle with the...
Hello again, I just want to tell you that my husband succeeded. The Arpège eau de parfum is now decanted to a bottle that can spray.
Oh, you mean that I should do that to get the mechanism work again? I might have destoyed it by trying to get it off the bottle so I don't know if that would be possible. And warm water is that not...
Thanks 30 roses. I will try again, but I have to get a bottle to pour the perfume into first. (If I succeed)
Well, I don't think I can fix this so I'll better think like Polyanna that I'm very very happy that this bottle doesn't contain one of my more expensive fragrances and that Arpège isn't one of my...
Chanel No 5 parfum.
Thank you whwend. I have tried to get the whole mechanism off the bottle by usin nippers, but I could'nt. Perhaps a travel spray would be the solution but can I get anything into this travel bottle...
I own a bottle of Arpège since a couple of years. It's not a vintage bottle but a new one. Now the (what is it called in English?) the thing at the top of the bottle that you press down to...
Arpège for me today.
Few new releases because I very seldom sample them but Chanel no 5 EDP and no 19 EDP and Shalimar EDT bought in 2007 are good. Escale à Portofino was also of high quality. Bottle empty now.
If your mother is fond of Chanel no 5 and want something like that you could buy her Hermès Calèche wich I think is a bit similar but also different. A lovely perfume.
Good morning. Shem-el-Nessim from Grossmith is my scent today.
Chanel no 5 soap is wonderful.
Savon de Provence soaps are very nice. You can get them in may scents. They are not expensive but I haven't found them on the Internet or in any shop. I have bought...
Testing Portrait of a Lady from Frederic Malle.
Hasu-no-Hana from Grossmith for me today.
Warum, I also started very late in my life, in 2007, and knew nothing and had worn very little perfume during all my earlier years. My taste has changed and my ability to smell has developed since I...
Happy New Year!
It was difficult to choose perfume for New Years Eve. I smelled Salvador Dali, Carnation from Mona di Orio and Shem-El-Nessim among others, but finally I decided to wear Parfum Sacré from Caron.
The last Christmases I have been my own perfume Santa but this year I decided not to buy any perfume for Christmas. But I wished and got a package of three Chanel No 5 soaps from my daughter.
Merry Christmas all Basenoters!
Cold and snowy here and Im celebrating in SL Arabie.
Vanille Tonka from Nicolaï.
Top notes : Aromatic and citrus : basil, lemon and mandarin oils
Heart : Floral : carnation, orange blossom absolute, pepper oil, cinnamon oil
Bottom notes :...
Oh petruccijc, a man sayling at the top of a rain forest! Here everything is white and the snow keeps on falling.
My scent of today is Vanille Tonka from Nicolaï.
Just a 30 ml bottle of Vanille Tonka from Nicolaï. But it smells very good.
First in Fragrance is a German site, but it's still in the EU so there's no problem to order from them.
So sad Sunnyfunny.
But I think that a person can get sensitive so that a fragrance that hasn't bothered him earlier suddenly can get him a headace. You can suddenly get an allergic reaction from...
Frenchie Day, I nearly always do this, at least five days in a row. It's my way of doing this and I never have been anosmic. Last spring I wore Calèche for more than two weeks in a row. We had a very...
It's not on the Nicolaï website yet. If it had been there I think I would have bought it without testing. I love Nicolaï fragrances.
Phul-nana from Grossmith for me today.
J'adore is my most worn scent in october because I wanted to finnish the bottle wich I did.
Perhaps you could layer with another fragrance and that way make some of the notes smell stronger.
I like and own one Celeb scent : Salvador Dali. And then I must admit that I have never smelled any other celeb scent. There are proparbly some nice scents amongst them, but there are so many...
Always fragrance, also on lazy days. It's not wasted perfume, I can wear the most expensive or the cheapest of my fumes, I enjoy them and that's the important thing for me. Perhaps I don't wear make...
Sacrebleu from Nicolaï.
I haven't tried Poivre but I was very disappointed when I sampled Coup de Fouet. it wasn't as spicy and rich as I had expected. Now Coup de Fouet is discontinued. On Les Senteur's web site they...
Welcome to Basenotes! I hope ypu will enjoy this as much as I do.
It has only happaned once since I started wearing fragrance in May 2007. I went on a weekend trip with some friends and brought a purse atomizer with Printemps Japonais in it and didn't realize that...
Good morning. Very cold October Saturday here.
I'm still in my project "finnishing the J'adore bottle".
Congratulations perfumed Lady! It's so nice to begin to love a fragrance that you didn't get from the start. I don't love Mitsouko but I like it more now after three years. I think other fragrances...
Testing Carnal Flower.
Le Parfum de Therèse.
I,m testing Ruth Mastenbroek the second day.
Francop, now I have tested Ruth Mastenbroek Eau de parfum.
The first time was in the evening after work. I spritzed on my wrists and my first reaction was that it was a fragrace for men. It was...
The Galimrd fragrance Accroche-Coeur smells of apple and cinnamon. I have only tested on my arm but then I thought that i was very pleasant.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Apple, Blackcurrant, Pink Pepper ...
3x10 ml Le Parfum de Therèse.
Testing Ruth Mastenbroek eau de parfum today. It seems to be a nice autumn day here. I wish you all a happy weekend.
Phul-Nana from Grossmith
I have thought a lot of getting a wine fridge but there is no room in my kitchen and the electricity in my other rooms are not grounded. I suppose that is necessary.
I keep my...
I also think ChickenFreak gives great advice. I have learned about certain notes by smelling fragrances with for example tuberose and I'm ceartainly a much better nose now than when I started wearing...
That sounds promising Francop. I hope my sample will arrive next week.
I have also just ordered a sample.
You have heard this before: Parfums Nicolaï.
It sometimes disturbs me that there is so much fragrance and so little time. How can I be able to wear all the fragrances I own? Sometimes I'm also afraid that many of them will turn bad. It's not...
My scent of today will be Number One from Nicolaï.
Le Grand duc, I love the Egoiste commercial.
Sicily for me today.
Sacrebleu and Maharanih from Nicolaï. Shem-El-Nessim and Hasu-No-Hana from Grossmith. Number One from Nicolai of course. Salvador Dali. And Shantoung and Yavana from Galimard. Galimar and Arabie are...
I'm wearing Madame Rochas today.
Number One from Nicolaï.
None so far, only a unisex fragrance like Yardley English Lavender. I have tested very few scents marketed for men. One I have tested is New York from Nicolaï. I have thougt that I proparbly will buy...
Hope you soon get well ineespenes.
I'm testing Une Rose from Frederic Malle and wish you all a happy Saturday.
Shem-el-Nessim from Grossmith, Number One from Nicolaï and Lapis Lazuli from Galimard.
If also orientals are counted I will ad Sacrebleu from Nicolaï and Carnation from Mona di Orio. Well, in fact I...
Phul-Nana from Grossmith.
Testing Fleurissimo second day.
I own Shem-el-Nessim and Hasu-no-Hana and Phul-nana is coming next week I hope. I'm not good at describing fragrances and detecting notes but I think I can smell richness and quality. And I felt very...
My scent of today is Gelsomino from Galimard.
Here we have 13 degrees C, strong wind and rain. But Amouage Gold makes the sun shine in my mind.
No I don't want to dissect any fragrance. That is too much work. And I'm not against synthetic perfumes as long as they smell good, and some notes can't be made from natural ingredients. But in fact...
I'm testing Amouage Gold again today so I'm happy although the weather is awfull.:happy:
It's still Le Temps d'une Fête from Nicolaï for me. It's funny. I didn't like it very much when I tested in spring 2009, but I bought it anyway this spring because I love so many Nicoalïs. And now I...
Welcome BlackDee! I'm in Le Temps d'une Fête from Nicolaï this last week of work before my holiday begins.
J'adore for me today.
Oh, what a photo of perfume bottles Mr G!
I think everyone can wear what they want. Personally I don't own a "mens" scent yet, unisex though. I think there are men scents I never would wear, Kouros is such a scent. But there are also women's...
If it's your taste that has developed and therefore you don't like the frag any more - then you can give it to a friend or to charity. Perhaps someone else like it.
If it has turned just throw i...
Sophi, I'm also enjoying roses today: Rose Pivoine from Nicolaï. A nice hot weather scent.
But I must admit that it's not me sitting there.
Escale à Portofino.
Still in Odalisque on this Midsummes Eve. Going camping in our boat, so no more fragrance until tomorrow when I'm home again.
Roberto, I'm vearing the same fragrance: Odalisque from Nicolaï.:vrolijk_26:
Le grand Duc, your queen Margrethe was handsome and impressing as always.
Thit weekend I'm testing Amouage Gold. This fragrance seem so right when whe have a royal wedding in Stockholm.
Calèche from Hermès.
Try Escale à Portofino from Dior.
In the morning after shower. Normally I don't reapply. Many fragrances lasts all day. But for example Escale a Portofino has to be reapplyed because it doesen't last. Or perhaps I wear something else...
Calèche (I think, very long time since I wore it. Well I must do that this summer.
Happy birthday Musse!
My scent of today is the lovely Le Temps d'une Fête from Nicolaï.
Le Temps dune Fête from Nicolaï.
Rose Pivoine from Nicolaï.
Cedar note often turns bad on my skin. Isn't there cedar in CdG Avignon? If it wasn't cedar it must have been another tree note that was awful.
Shiseido Feminité du Bois. Cedar again.
The Grossmiths Hasu-no-Hana and Shem-el-Nessim. Proparbly a combinaition of: lovely fragrances that suis me well, as in the old days, price and the thought that I've come this far from 5th Avenue...
Le Temps d'une Fête and Rose Pivoine from Nicolaï arrived yeasterday.
Good morning! Cold an windy so I'm testing a spicy fragrance today:
Patchouly Homme from Nicolaï.
Notes from the Nicolaï web site:
Top notes : Citrus, lavender, pelargonium, bay
