    Exciting question actually.

    Let's see ....(I am not sure it would work in real life, but worth a shot)

    Top : bergamot/neroli/orange rind/rosewood note
    Middle : real orris/carnation/hedione/frankincense/Atlas cedarwood
    bottom : isobutyl quinoline (leather)/ ambrette seeds / muscetone /labdanum/benzoin

    I would prefer to point it to the direction of a floral/leathery chypre or to a soft oriental with lots of orris/cedar/musk.(depending on formula and analogy of ingredients)

    Well I have no idea exactly how this works and if the notes have to have some characteristics that would allow them to "fit" and mix correctly but I guess my ideal smell would be something like that:

    Top Notes: Spearmint, Strawberry, Blueberry
    Middle Notes: Washed Clothes/Laundry-Detergent-Softener, Lotus Flower, Lily of the Valley
    Base Notes: Sandalwood, Vanilla, Milk Chocolate

    Good mental exercise. I want two simple scents. One light, one heavy:

    Peony
    Lily
    Heliotrope

    Amber
    Coffee
    Patchouli

    Ok, here goes:

    Bergamot, Rose, Clove
    Sandalwood, Muguet, Patchouli (just a bit)
    Amber, Oakmoss

    Also, I can't decide where to put some leather. *Perhaps in all three.

    It'll probably end up smelling really awfully, which is often the case with "too much of a good thing". *

    P.S. *Oh, yes, thanks for reminding me. *Peony also somewhere...

    OK, I'll have a go at this. This seems fun. Don't know if I can keep up with the rest of you but I really like what a personal question this is.

    Top Notes: *mandarin blossoms, mandarin leaves, apricot kernal oil, rosewood

    Heart Notes: *white rose, yellow rose, magnolia, white tea


    (but the marketing guys might force me to write Thé or also add yellow thé accord* as well because no one else has it. Hey, nothing is perfect and you know those marketing guys!)


    Base Notes: *hibiscus musk (I read that one today, can't resist), White (if Marc Jacobs can have PINK, I can have White!), vintage blond & precious** woods, lemon bark (I read that somewhere, too)



    * made by soaking the prized first leaves of chinese tea (collected before April 15th only on the east side of the West Lake Mountain before 10 AM) mascerated in the essential oils of yellow flowers -- mimosa, jonquil and an exotic orchid.)

    Lady Lone Star, you don't really mean this, do you? Maybe you brevity is leaving a wrong impression?

    So many women totally had fun today with this thread, me included. And as I read your post, it makes me feel maybe a little dissed for participating in "the whole concept/project " that you think got a "You've got to be kidding" *put down. I took "our Glorious One's" post like Shycat did, a gentle joshing about Shycat's love affar with licorice. (which this Shycat seems more than able to handle judging by her often hillarious output) Glorious1 would not really mean it like that would she? *Cause that would be mean and not very Glorious*: What did Glorious1 mean, especially since she never returned which might indicate disdain, mightn't it?

    In the words of Kang and Kodos, Holy flurping shnit! Looking at your post count, it seems you might not be too familiar with LadyL. She may be a moderator, but she's no harsh schoolmarm or anything. It was a harmless, offhand remark; it was more than obvious she was not putting the board down. Seriously, one little sentence did not merit your clipping around a dozen or more quotes.

    But what's more significant, you have actually gone and insulted the person who has been essentially the backbone of this board as other people have come and gone according to their whims (including myself). Her participation may not be so great in the idle chatter, but that's because she actually has work to do on this board - unpaid work that doesn't get much recognition from what seems to be the increasingly ungrateful masses. If there has been one person whose participation has made it possible for you to have a women's board for you to post on, it's LadyL., so your ill-informed, ignorant remark not only deserves a retraction but an apology.

    My Goodness! *I just wanted to start something fun, not a fracas (forgive the pun.) Is it possible it was not more than obvious to CeccaSF? I would imagine it is.

    I am new and have a low post count, too, but I am good at people (my profession depends on it.) It seems to me that CeccaSF meant no harm. It's a very gallant impulse to defend Lady Lone Star, but *I think Lady LS had already dealt with it most expertly and graciously as befits an experienced and good moderator. *

    I think it is the format of writing (where people are deprived of other signs to read for intention and meaning) that leads to misinterpretation and hotter feelings than really need to be. Surely we can all allow for the confusion that arises from this and be a bit more gentle and civil to one another, especially new members who are feeling things out?

    As a new member myself (as many of the posters on all threads on both the Male and female forums seem to be), I am undoubtedly missing certain nuances, but I sense no insult, or ignorant remark in CeccaSF's post.

    It seems a straightforward, heartfelt and politely worded enquiry about something that honestly bothered this woman. *Why it bothered her so strongly, I cannot say. But I don't see anything worth judging her about in that or that she needs to be whomped. *Live and let live & different strokes for different folks, you know?

    To tell the truth I was kind of puzzling over what might have been meant myself and was very happy to see Lady Lone Star clarify matters. Thank You, Lady LS.

    I'm not putting anyone down, and I'm not putting this thread down either. *When I found some free time, I had planned to respond to it myself.
    I look forward to the pleasure of reading Lady Lone Star's fragrance pyramid(s) and I hope she can find the time.....With her experience, I am sure she has a range and not just one! I am sure I can learn a great deal.

    Peace everyone!

    I've tried Cumming and it's very hard to describe if you haven't tried it yourself. It definitely starts out with some whiskey and possibly some leather and the the two rubbers come out and the cigar definitely comes out at the end.

    Top note : *bergamot, green note , green apple, fruite defendu
    *
    Middle note : *jasmine, cedarwood, sandalwood *

    Base note : *leather, amber, musk, vanilla *

    hows this. I will call it "fruite defendu a la bulgari " based on the bulgari homme pyramid.

    a snake told me to add the apple & forbidden fruit, but then snakes speak with forked tongues, right?

    After spraying it, you only need to bath in some foamy whipped cream and then let's what happens... ;D

    My favorite top and heart note is narcissus/daffodil. I am a gardener and I don't really know which came first: love of perfume or love of gardening/gardens. I grow narcissus and it is captivating in the garden. Very subtle and ethereal. That is what I smell in Vol de Nuit.

    Some carnation in the heart.

    The question is about pyramid. Let me see... I love a bit of musk at the base and perhaps some tonka. Throw in some sandal and oakmoss.

    Okay.

    Top: narcissus
    heart: narcissus, carnation, touch of grapefruit
    Base: sandal, musk, tonka, oakmoss

    I wonder if this combination exists?
