An affordable treasure!
Good morning all!
It's a dreary morning, so my fragrant solution is Caron Bellodgia EDT to get me going -
Avaluxe Madame X
Miss Natasha by Ebba
What an absolutely perfect description!
SL Incens et Lavande
Cadolle No. 9
Ava Luxe Madame X
Ebba - Miss Natasha
I hate to use the term "old lady" scents, so I'll just say that there a few that smell "too mature" for my taste (no offense intended), including: Joy, Arpege, Ombre Rose, Chanel #5, Parure, Bal a...
Theorema by Fendi
I am lounging around, having a lazy day wearing Comme des Garcons EDP.
Unfortunately, I haven't had the pleasure of sniffing Deneuve, but my favorite is the long ago discontinued Coty Sophia!
I am wearing Comme des Garcons EDP on this cold morning. If this one doesn't warm me up, nothing will!
Welcome! I would suggest Moods by Krizia for you
I closed my eyes and dug into my large basket of samples . . . Ta da, it was Gucci Accenti!
Am I wrong in saying this one is discontinued?
Chanel No. 5 - It smells "sad" on me. I can't quite put my feelings into words for this one!
Fracas - So bold, confident and "well, here I am." It doesn't fit my personality at all -
I can't say which one is best because it is such a personal choice, but my favorite is Opium!
Grapefruit - I love to eat it and love the smell of it, but not in perfume!
Cumin - I don't like it food OR perume
Lilac - Love the flowers and their natural odor, but despise it in perfume.
Caron Nocturnes for me today -
Note - Amber, woods, incense
Hair - light reddish brown
September - Libra
Jicky - A little too masculine for my taste. I think it may be the lavender
Wrappings - Haven't smelled this one, but since I don't care for the other Clinique fragrances, I won't be tracking...
I would recommend Ormonde Woman - it's lovely!
I haven't tried this one but love the name! I am wearing KL this morning -
SL Rahat Loukoum
There are more, but my mind has gone blank!
My ultimate calming fragrance is Etro Shaal Nur
* * *CSP Vanille Abricot * 8-)
IMO, the vintage is wonderful! The new version is awful! :(
Zen (black bottle) [smiley=blank.gif]
Mariella Burani (the original) 8-)
I would recommend Creed's Jasmal - it is just beautiful if you enjoy jasmine!
I do have nostalgic associations with most of the fragrances I have used for years. Some are good, some bad! :) :'(
Happy Birthday Artisankey! :) It was Nu EDT for me today
The color makes no difference to me unless it is very dark and thick looking, which probably means it's very old and probably not usable.
I have to be in the right mood to wear it, but I do like it very much!
I wore a touch of Agent Provocateur on this chilly and cloudy Spring day ;)
Bellodgia by Caron ;)
My mother wore My Sin and Lanvin Spanish Geranium ::)
Nuit de Noel, Parfum Sacre and Nocturnes. There are others I like, but these are my faves! ;)
[smiley=engel017.gif] *Angel *
Creed Jasmal [smiley=blank.gif]
Chanel No. 22 EDT and body lotion [smiley=chanel.gif]
I would have to say Etro's Shaal Nur [smiley=happy.gif]
Fiori di Krizia [smiley=blank.gif] [smiley=blank.gif]
Miss Dior [smiley=blank.gif]
YSL Roses des Bois [smiley=kiss.gif]
Anything Liz Claiborne
Charlie (all of them!)
Jessica McClintock (all)
Liz Taylor Passion, Black Pearls
Kenzo L'Elefant and Tigre
Gayle Hayman Delicious...
Creed Jasmal [smiley=blank.gif]
Etro Shaal Nur [smiley=blank.gif]
I will second the Dioressence! *I also recommend Parfum Sacre, Coco, Must de Cartier, Mitsouko, Boucheron Femme, and the Comme des Garcon Incense series - Happy hunting!
. . . . . when you read a post about a perfume, then think to yourself, "Do I have that one?" or you know you have it somewhere, but can't find it *:(
* * * *I always associate Chanel No. 22 with weddings! * *[smiley=chanel.gif]
Must de Cartier (the original), Annick Goutal Sables, Diorresence, Vol de Nuit, Bulgarie Femme, Creed Jasmal, Hermes Caleche, Cartier Panthere, Rochas Mystere ---------- *;)
IMHO, wearing perfume to a funeral is never a good idea.
* * * Krizia's Teatro Alla Scala was my scent today - I seldom wear it but when I do, I wonder why I don't wear it more often!
I wore DelRae Bois de Paradis today - :)
Michelle by Balenciaga
It sounds like you found a keeper! Unfortunately, I can't smell this one on my skin. I bought a bottle of it anticipating a wonderful experience, but it was a washout on me and I returned it. I'm...
* * Yes, jasmine is my favorite floral! *
I am wearing Mitsouko EDP on this beautiful, sunny Sunday! :)
CSP Amour de Cacao
* * * *Patou's Moment Supreme * *:)
* * * * L'Heure Attendue by Patou
One of my Ebay policies - no picture, no sale! ;)
AG Eau du Sud, Dolce Vita, Chanel 19, Shaal Nur :)
* * * * * * * * * Dioressence, KL, Opium to name a few ;)
I agree with FroFro. *Perfume is such a personal choice that gifting it can be a disaster unless you know the recipient's likes and dislikes! *I love Angel when I'm in the mood to wear it, but I can...
CdG Kyoto this morning for work - now I'm testing a decant of SL Rahat Loukoum. This one is VERY different from any fragrance I've ever smelled!
Wishing everyone a great weekend!
Lanvin Spanish Geranium reminds me of my mother who wore this when I was a little girl. *I searched and searched for a bottle of this and finally bought a bottle on Ebay. *When I opened the bottle, a...
Sampling CdG Kyoto today - I am almost sure this will be my next purchase!
[smiley=lartisan.gif]I have been craving "tree scents" too! *My favorites so far are samples of CdG Sequoia and Zagorsk - especially Sequoia. *I want full bottles of both!
The only men's scent I own and wear is Sables by Annick Goutal. *I bought it thinking that it was a feminine fragrance, and have since learned that her square bottles are masculine or unisex - right?...
* * * * * * * * * * * * * Annick Goutal Eau du Sud
L'Artisan Jour de Fete
LuckyScent samples in my mailbox - Woo Hoo! *I have heard so much about CdG Kyoto so I ordered a sample - it is absolutely beautiful! *It is unlike any other fragrance I have ever smelled, smoky,...
Parfum Sacre EDP. *I love this one!
Feminite du Bois for me today.
I will second the Body Shop's Woody Sandalwood! It lasts forever on your skin and is very aromatic and soothing.
A few of my rose favorites:
YSL Roses des Bois
Cartier So Pretty Rose Verte
I am testing Mimosa Pour Moi today
Scentiments is very reliable! *Their shipping is fast, and I have returned a couple of items with no problem at all. *
The ever-beautiful Mitsouko!
I decided on a touch of Coco EDP for the day.
