    Re: Resolutions

    I, too, have bottles that I bought that I don't wear or don't like, and need to cull. Keeping track of my SOTD has helped me see that I really only wear about 20 fragrances regularly. I vow to sell,...

    Re: New edgy signature scent for my fiancé

    Jour d'Hermes is a good one, or for work, how about Prada Infusion d'Iris? It's not cloying and sillage is minimal, but it's a lovely iris. If she likes Oud Wood, why not get her some? Another...
  89. Re: Any suggestions for a woman's fragrance that actually smells like AMBER?

    Aroma M Geisha Noire is amber with incense and a touch of smoke on me. Inexpensive and great-smelling.

    Re: Women aren't monolithic

    I do chalk up a lot of those types of threads to stupid guys who don't understand that a particular cologne isn't a woman magnet. I particularly object when such a scent is referred to as a...

    I am not the least bit intrigued by any of those. Guess I'm not a Cosmo girl.

    Re: Which scent will you own forever

    When I heard that Panthere de Cartier was to be discontinued, I bought a big enough supply to last the rest of my life, I should think. And I have several bottles of vintage L'Heure Bleue that should...
  95. Re: Do you think perfume should relate to your colouring?

    I'm brown-eyed and silver-haired. I have no idea what perfumes would "fit" me if I believed this. I wear what I like and not what someone says I should wear.

    Re: Thank you to Stuigi and LPP

    Thank you both so much for your hard work. It can't have been an easy job, moderating this motley bunch.

    Re: Any love for Jour D' Hermes?

    I thought it was a lovely summer scent--light but persistent. I found that I reached for it when I needed something unobtrusive but pretty. It was completely suitable for office wear and fancy enough...

    Re: How did you get into perfumery?

    I have always loved scent--I had Jean Nate, Wind Song, Muguet de Bois, and a Dior in the houndstooth box (I don't remember which one, but I didn't like it, too green). As I got older I had "signature...
