    Encrenoire75 makes some good points -- that niche-only stores don't necessarily need to exist in Paris because Paris mainstream department stores carry niche brands. At Le Bon Marché, they carry...

    Re: Pure Oud By Kilian - impressions

    From what I understand, Oud is a fragrance category: woody, smoky, leathery -- traditionally constructed around the smell of burning agarwood and the scent of the raw agarwood oil extracted from the...

    Re: Pure Oud By Kilian - impressions

    I think maybe you're loving Homage Attar more because it's an attar (a rose scent) rather than an oud? It has oud in it, but the primary focus is rose, and the attars tend to skew sweeter and...

    Re: Pure Oud By Kilian - impressions

    Ah, that explains it right there. I don't care for the Montale interpretation of oud -- it strikes me as loud and bossy, while the Le Labo Oud was my least favorite of their entire line. It makes...

    Re: Pure Oud By Kilian - impressions

    I'm sorry that's been your experience, but for me, the By Kilian Pure Oud is potent, deep and long lasting. I'm not the slightest bit disappointed with it, and consider it one of the best Western...

    Re: Profumo.it sample reviews.

    So where were you when I was trying to write that brief? I could have just pointed to you and said, "Take note of every word that comes out of this man's mouth!"

    I'm glad you got to experience...

    Re: Profumo.it sample reviews.

    Beautiful description of Rose des Bois, and I, too, get that "emotional" reaction to Abdes Salaam's scents. You can tell that they were created by a perfumer who loves his work.

    Re: Profumo.it sample reviews.

    Hi Delmar. I couldn't remember exactly the list of ingredients that I had requested from Mr. Salaam for Aalacho (which turned into Aalacho #2), so I emailed and asked and he graciously obliged me...

    Oh OW! All right -- stop twisting my arm already. It was me.

    What you're smelling is version #1, which Dominique really likes, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. He sensed my hesitation...

    Re: Profumo.it D. Dubrana

    Dubrana's Tabac is probably one of the nicest tobacco fragrances I've yet run across -- it isn't the over-sweetened pipe tobacco that most perfume houses usually produce when concocting a tobacco...

    Wait! You called Harrods and ordered a fragrance to be sent to the United States?

    I just called Harrods last week about ordering a fragrance to be shipped here to the States and they...

    Re: Nutmeg/clove scents

    Il Profumo Chocolat Amere has a great nutmeg element to it -- lasts a good long time, dark and dusty. It's $135.00 for 100ml at Lucky Scent.

    Listed notes: galbanum, nutmeg, ginger, flowers,...

    Re: What are some QUALITY designer Chypres?

    I'm looking through my Michael Edwards Fragrances of the World book (2008) -- I'll do my best not to repeat names that have already been listed, and I'll stick to the more well-known designers:

    Re: He's Just Not That Into You: Niche

    Excellent point.

    Status is usually associated with mainstream fragrances that are more recognizable in both name and smell: "Oh! You're wearing Gucci Pour Homme!" That's far more likely to...
  15. Re: Which perfume reviewer do you prefer, Turin/Sanchez , Chandler Burr or others?

    Fraddicted -- thanks for the compliment! As well as the recommendation.

    I love writing reviews, and am glad to hear that you find them entertaining and/or useful. :)
  16. Re: Which perfume houses use a high percentage of naturals?

    I tend to agree with this, based on my own experience. I've tested out several of the natural brands -- Ayala Moriel, Rich Hippie, Social Creatures, Claude Andre Hebert, Red Flower -- and the lack...
  17. Re: Looking for a warm, modern, non-grandpa fall/winter scent

    Same with Le Labo Labdanum 18. Booze booze and more booze.

    I did recently run across a very dry leather and patchouli scent: Odori Cuoio. Subtle, with very little in the way of florals. It...
  18. Re: Please help me find a sensual incense fragrance for men

    Ave Luxe Opoponax Intense is a terrific incense fragrance: strong, rich, smoky and a bit sweet. I've had bad luck with other Ava Luxe fragrances (including their Incense Rose), but Opoponax Intense...
  19. Re: Looking for a warm, modern, non-grandpa fall/winter scent

    I noticed that someone else suggested Le Labo's Patchouli 24. Patchouli 24 is great, but it does have a bit of a dark, smoky bite to it (birch tar) which you might consider near weapons-grade level,...

    Re: I'm getting married! What scent do I wear?

    Since you'll undoubtedly be surrounded by masses of flowers and vats of perfume, and you don't really want to clash with either, you might consider Le 3eme Homme by Caron -- it's a lightly floral...

    Yes, a woman could get away with wearing it, as its smokiness is balanced by its creamy sweetness, and the burnt coffee, burnt sugar aspect trails off into a ridiculously smooth (and delicious)...
