Crabtree-Evelyn (sp?) Nomad is built around bamboo.
Wow, I thought I was only person who wears this! I'm wearing it now.
It's a wonderful splash-on for these hot, sticky days.
I received an email with a dicount code from parfum1.com. Yes, I deleted it. :-/
Has anyone else received the discount code? Can you pass it along?
You hear it too? :)
Yes, Jowcoffee, I hear it every day and every night. Ahhhhhhhh....
Givenchy makes one Incense Hawaii (or something like that). It's not distributed in the US, but it is in Asia or Europe. Hate to be so vague :o .
I'd love to score a sample.
I'll be keeping my eyes (and wallet) open.
Renzo, where did you find it? I've been looking on-line and haven't found anyone selling it yet.
I have samples of both the edt and edp. Though I really like the scent, I too find them fleeting. I don't think I get two hours from either of them. :(
I don't often get into Boston anymore, but my best guess is to check out the Newbury Street shops. If you get away from Boston there are many malls, so yopu'll find Filenes, Sephoras, etc.... There...
Today, I used the very last of my Arabie sample. :'(
I'm in love with this fragrence, so here I go again...
I'm not sure whether I want a decant, something inside of me is crying out "go for a...
Anything with lime (Which is too bad, I like Trumper's lime.)
I like to think that I've learned a lot about scents while hanging out here in basenotes. I've sampled many fragrances over the past year or so - thank you to several very generous basenoters - and...
What do I really think of female compliments?
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ::)
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;)
Teflon, you took the words right out of, errr right out of the bottle. I've never heard Geir decribed so evocatively or so true-to-form. Brilliant. Geir is one of my favorite scents. I've been...
An edp? That's news to me. THanks!
Lately, I've come across some great prices (online) for Habit Rouge. It's been on my list of must-try scents and I'm feeling like I owe myself a little treat.
Since I'm buying this one blind should...
Don't give upon Geir. I find one VERY LIGHT spray that mists my neck and upper chest is all it takes. It will last for hours.
One of my favorite scents, and my girl (a european beauty...
Trumper's Sandalwood Cologne is one of my favorites.
Very complex. Very elegant. Very long lasting.
It's well worth sampling and trumper's is very generous with free samples.
There I was, about to test Santal Noble from a recently aquired sample...
It slipped from hands.
There I was, staring at an empty vial on its side on the floor. :'(
My first impulse was to get...
Always a wealth of insight and information.
And just when I was thinking that I absolutely HAVE TO OWN a bottle of Ambre Sultan. Now the search is on for a sample of Valentino's Vendetta....
Many of the scents you listed were there.
No, I'm not familiar with the Bulgari. It has been mentioned in so many posts that I'm eager to try it. (There's been talk of an extreme version...
A light spritz of Ambre Sultan from my recently arrived samples.
Oh my gawd, I'm walking through a an open-air Oriental spice market. The warm, dry desert breeze is blowing through my hair...
Colognes that whisper sophistication.
I stopped at Marshall's on the way home from work tonight. (Inspired by the postings earlier this week.) A bit out of the way, but worth the trip-
One bottle of Live Jazz (Got'cha. You're coming...
V de k thanks for the heads up. I've been looking for Live Jazz for quite some time.
I was at a local Marshall's and a T.J. Maxx this past weekend and the picking were slim to nothing-at-all. I'll...
Go to Yahoo Images and type "cologne ads"in the search box.
Just wondering if anyone swapped or bought from B'noter Gunslinger?
I've read so much about Jicky on BN that it's high on my must try list... but I have not found it locally at retail nor have I had luck snagging a sample. :'(
(I've contacted Guerlain directly as...
HI Dante - The LV samples came in 0.1 oz glass vials. Small but potent.
Chris- Thanks. I spilled a tiny amount of Santal Noble on my finger while opening the vial to sneak a sniff... My immediate...
My samples from Aedes have arrived.
Fragrances I read about on basenotes and lusted after in my dreams.
L'rtisan Mechant Loup
MPG: Santal Noble & Jardin du Nil
LV Piper Nigrum
SL" Ambre Sultan,...
For me it was Heritage.
"Gawd, I smell like my dead grandmother..."
Then my girl commented on how much she liked the colonge I was wearing, so I stuck with it.
I still smell like my...
Thanks for the great descriptions of Castle Forbes colognes. Lonach is the scent I was intereted in trying. As you mentioned, it is touted as an Oriental. I'll stick to more tried and true...
Has anyone tried any of the Castle Forbes colognes? The are made in Scotland and from the descriptions sound quite interesting. I'm thinking about making the plunge but was hoping for some feedback...
Basenoters to the rescue again! Thanks for posting the links where Trumper colognes are available. U.S sources are so hard to locate.
I've gone through about a dozen samples and have enjoyed them...
Trumpers is very gererous with their samples, and most of their scents are wonderfully sophisticated.
Verve: The Ajaccio Violets is very nice, not overly sweet, but not long lasting. Not one I'd...
GEIR today! [smiley=happy.gif]
A friend is heading to New Orleans in a couple of weeks and I'm thinking about asking him to a purchase a sample set from Hove Perfumers. I've seen their Habanero mentioned in a couple of postings...
Thank you for all the great impressions.
I've added the D&G to my wardrobe.
Is there no end to this madness? [smiley=undecided.gif]
Have the EDP. It's wonderfully potent stuff. I can "walk through" a single spray and be set for the whole day.
Today I saw D&G Pour Homme at TJ Maxx: factory sealed 1.3 oz for $24.99.
Can I live without this? (I lean heavily toward and own mostly orientals.)
What are your impressions on this cologne.
I'm surprized it took so long to recieve your samples. I recieved samples about a week after e-mailing them. I guess it's worth waiting for good things.
I love many of the Trumper scents....
Oops, I mixed up Heritage and Habit Rouge. Marshall's does have Heritage edt.
I have seen Habit Rouge listed as edt and edc and wondering which one Basenoters prefer.
Today at Marshalls I saw several bottles Heritage edt (100ml for $19.99).
Do I want the edt (it is very nice) or the edc (which I haven't samples yet)?
Interesting, l'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme lasts forever on me.
Try Geir. Very fresh and very long lasting.
Now that I'm thinking about it I'll wear it tomorrow. [smiley=wink.gif]
Very cute. [smiley=grin.gif]
My daughter loves Curve. She even makes me wear it on occasion.
Usually the best in my area is a Filene's and an understocked Sephoria so I rarely find the scents in which I'm interested in testing.
But today I went to an outlet mall in Wrentham, MA that had 4...
Thanks for all the great suggestions.
I bought Zino blind after reading something about it on Basenotes...
What's the line in that song? Oh yeah, "I've no regrets..."
This one is truly unique.
I'm putting my bottle under lock...
I'm going to make my first foray into niche fragrances by ordering some samples. (Aedes has a good deal with seven for $15.)
Here's my must haves:
Anyone have a suggestion(s) for a good scentless hair tonic? I've been using Lucky Tiger Correct Way (w/o oil) for years, but it has become very difficult to find.
Thank you Lazycalm -
I'll check out these sites!
Ahhh, SL Arabie and Amber Sultan - I've been hoping to sample these two for what seems like ages and your descriptions are doing little to quench my desires.
Is that me speaking? [smiley=huh.gif]...
I started the day with Geir. [smiley=smiley.gif]
I'm finishing it off with Trumper's Sandalwood. Simply lovely. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
Tsar. Enjoy your Tuesday! [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
Georgio Ballentino la Ale
Aqua de Rolling Rock pour homme
I enjoyed reading the Frangrances and Films posts, but I've often wondered what scents the dapper set really enjoyed wearing- Sinatra? Astaire? Carey Grant? Etc...
Who and what?
Gucci Nobile for $9.99.
I said no... I said maybe... I said yes [smiley=grin.gif].
It will be my s.o.t.d. tomorrow.
Today is a Geir day. Mmmmmmmm.
Hi CJ: How'd the job offer work out for you? I may have one coming along very soon.
I don't have an extensive collection to choose from, but my girfriend has commented positively on Geir, Zino Davidoff, and Royall Mandarin.
Good luck with the job offer [smiley=thumbsup.gif] three months isn't too bad.
Thanks for the words of encouragement. The resumes are still being sent weekly.
I may not have the job I want,...
Thanks. Great information. Like CJ I'm on a tight budget, but for other reasons. I'm still scrambling to recover from a lay-off (ouch), but still every- so- often amidst the scrambling there's a need...
Havana Reserva by Aramis.
It fits the mood for this hot and humid Saturday.
Gier has a web site. I usually locate it by doing a web search for Laila perfume. It will link you to Gier edp. The only other source I found is Nordstom's. They have the exclusive for...
I've retired my EDP until the cooler weather returns. (But now I'm questioning that decision.)
The EDP is potent. I walk through a single spray and the scent is with me for the whole...
I don't have the vocabulary to describe scent notes, but here's what the box says:
"The power of crisp Norwegian montains blended with wild herbs, wet woods and natural oils... creates...
My daughter wanted a bottle of Laila for her graduation present (Eighth-grade, she's 14. I guess I'm doing something right.), so it was off to Nordstom's this a.m. Geir Ness was there, so she had the...
Trumpers colognes are hard to come by around here - where do you purchase your's (online?) The violet is wonderful. I love it, but it only lasts about 1/2 hour on my skin. Today I'm...
Royall Mandarin is a great summer splash-on. I wore it yesterday. It was hot and humid here and it worked well. Every time I wear it I get a compliment from my girl.
It usually lasts a few...
I'm new to the scent world too with about seven nice scents- all bought blind after reading Basenotes postings. It's easy to see how scents can become a hobby, or worse- a passion. Dare I say...
It's hot 'n sticky today! [smiley=grin.gif]
I'll be outside at a graduation party... so today it's
Royall Mandarin - splashed on liberally.
Summer has finally arrived... [smiley=happy.gif]
Aramis Havana Reserva.
Trumper's Sandalwood or Havana Reserva?
Sandalwood or Havana?
Sandalwood or Havana?
Oooh... maybe Geir?
Finally on :exclamation
Grant, thanks for the help this is the first message I've been able to post on the YABB board.
