  1. I actually like these a lot better than the "new"...

    I actually like these a lot better than the "new" packaging they came out with not too long ago - I really don't like those at all, I preferred the plain black boxes. The Liberty-inspired ones are...
  2. Re: L'Air Du Desert Marocain (Review) by Noirdrakkar

    I agree with almost everything in your review, except I would give it more 5 ratings. I adore it! It's in my permanent pantheon of really great perfumes, and I never even thought I liked this style...

    What a wonderful story! I felt as though I were right there with you. Mr. Wasser sounds like a most delightful tea companion indeed!
  4. Re: What is the best Chypre of all time marketed for men?

    Balmain de Balmain (1998) is a really great green chypre. It's nominally for women but you would never know by smelling it - definitely a unisex but not very well known. I would love to smell it on a...

    Any award that is won by the godawful Chanel Bleu cannot be taken seriously. And Balenciaga Paris is, IMHO, the feminine fragrance equivalent of that one, mind-numbingly unoriginal and robotically...

    I must try these ASAP, I adore peonies and this perfume actually has the real thing in it!

    I have not tried the Jimmy Choo, but I am always willing to give a fruity chypre a chance, The Idylle Duet also sounds good. And Orlando Bloom could sell me anything at all. :wink:

    Re: Coty Les Muses

    I have a small bottle in surprisingly good condition, so I am assuming it is one of the limited release reissued ones. I get a surprising amount of animalic notes after the initial floral burst. Not...

    Re: L'Artisan Eau de Merveilleuses

    Oh, this is one of my ALL TIME favorites! The vanilla was very dark and intense, and the mango was sweet, juicy and "perfumey" not the acid fresh/green mango in virtually all other modern perfumes....

    Wow, do I ever want to try this now! I hope it gets reissued in its original glory.

    I could not agree more, as someone who loves fiercely elegant classic perfumes like Jolie Madame and Jean-Louis Scherrer. Where are the modern perfumes for GROWNUPS?!

    Yes, exactly! The one they use for hand-to-hand combat! :-D

    Excellent dissertation on these natural perfumes! You make them all sound so enticing.:smiley:

    I agree with your general approach - perfume just has to smell GOOD, and it's wonderful when you...

    It sounds really sweet, but I will give it a chance since some of the notes sound unusual. At least it comes in 15 and 30 ml sizes - a lot more of that from perfume companies would be nice!

    This is pretty big news! I liked some of the older Valentino scents like the original eponymous scent and Vendetta, but they seem to have lost their way in recent years.

    Oh, this is just exactly right for me! Tobacco, tuberose AND labdanum? Be still, oh my heart!:smiley:
