    Hi all!

    In my 30's I took an interest in wine...

    In my early 40's I took an interest in dancing...

    I've left it 'till I'm nearly 50 before taking a more serious interest in how I smell...

    Look out for tons of questions from me, oh, and Thanks In Advance!

    Just a quick question - generally how long do fragrances last for? I bought a little bottle of Terre d'Hermes, but I don't really see myself using it a whole lot just yet as I feel it's a little mature for me (i'm only 20). I don't wanna just leave it in a wardrobe and have it "going off" though.

    Hello everyone! I'm from Barcelona, and I've always been into fragrances.

    The main problem I have is I can't decide when I feel like buying myself a fragrance!!

    Thank you for letting my aboard!!! Let me explore the oceans and the lands of fragrances with you all! (I have a lot to learn)

    Your bottle will last as long as you keep it in decent conditions. We have some members who own bottles that are decades old. Keep the bottle out of the sun and away from your radiator or heating vent and you'll be fine storing it for a long time. There is no expiration date, so it's up to you.

    One extra thing to think about. If it is a mini, it is most likely a splash bottle, so you'll want to use it a bit faster being that it gets more exposure to oxygen. The contact with your skin will also blend your oils and skin cells with the juice in the bottle. Minis are for testing and decoration. No need to hold on to it forever.

    I joined recently(but have been reading for a while) but only just realized this thread was here. I'm astounded by the amount of knowledge on this forum! I'm in the suburban Detroit, Michigan area.

    Is there a thread that talks about places to buy online? There are so many sites and it's hard to tell how legit they are. I'm especially interested in knowing what the safest places are to buy Creed.

    Use that link and you'll find a lot of threads if you scroll down. If you only see a few then you'll need to change how far back you are looking to allow older threads to show up. There are a bunch of reviews of online shopping sources.

    I wouldn't know about online buying when it comes to Creeds, but Nieman Marcus has a great creed counter.

    I was just at a Neiman Marcus yesterday checking out the Creeds! Looking to take the plunge on one before the end of the year.

    Hi!
    Have been reading an lurking for a while and have discovered some fantastic scents via some really helpful people. You guys are the antithesis of the people who offer fragrance squirts in the department stores ie knowledgable and not on commission!!! Have built up quite an armoury of what my wife calls smellies thanks to the info on here and still on the lookout! Belated Happy New Year to everyone!

    Question Re: Welcome to Just Starting Out...

    Question: I love Bulgari Omnia Crystalline; I've both read, and noticed myself, that it is a light scent. It disappears rather quickly. I'd like suggestions on a similar scent that is longer lasting.

    Welcome Serenity* and Peachallie.

    I am not familiar with Bulgari Omnia Crystalline but reading about it, it sounds like it's a musky woods scent - and remember...certain people (like me) cannot smell certain musks so perhaps it smells 'light' to you because you're not smelling/experiencing the musk?

    If I were you, I would do an Advanced Search here on BN with the keywords 'musky wood' in the Female Fragrance Board and see what you come up with.

    Good luck!

    Hi All, I just found this place, you folks sure know about perfumes, I hope you can help me find something I am looking for, I saw a few suggestions from other posts.

    Thanks to all who posted links on where to buy supplies, if I would not have searched on a perfume this evening I would never have found this place.

    thanks again

    Hello... I just started a collecting fragrances a few weeks ago, and ran into your site while looking for various reviews of cologne online. this website has been so helpful and informative about what types of frags I should sample... Some of my favorite colognes i've tried/purchased so far have been these

    YSL M7 (love this)
    Gucci Envy
    Comme Des Garcons 2Man (love the smell, but very bad longevity)
    Gucci Pour Homme I & II
    Terre D Hermes
    Encre Noire
    CDG Kyoto (my favorite)

    can anyone recommend any other frags I might enjoy based on the ones I like? thanks!

    We're happy to have you. You'll be telling people where to buy samples and sharing your experiences and tastes soon enough. If you can't find what you are looking here then it must not exist...

    Omnia Crystalline was supposed to be fruity; I'm currently enjoying Chanel No, 19 but still looking for that great mostly fruity/ touch of floral combo.

    Well, I have a question :
    Is it ok to spray so much fragrance, that you actually smell ? (for example, you use 4 or 5 sprays, then you go out). I never did that, I am just curious.

    Yes it is. 4-5 sprays seems to be the maximum that many people will spray. You want to smell! And you want to smell good. Don't go crazy and make it that you fill the room with your fragrance when you walk in, but enough so that at the right distance people will enjoy you.
