    Default October 7 Sniff-n-Speak Saturday: AMBER

    I can't handle more than three in one day - is that OK? (Bet you already guessed I am brand new here.) Wonderful Twolf has already volunteered to help me with some ambers. I abandoned Bal a Versailles a long time ago, along with Youth Dew, as being knockout drops.

    Oh! This is so exciting!! Think we can organize ourselves to a once a month thing? Do the guys ever wander over from their postings to participate? Or is this listed there as well.
    The amber discussion will be the second in this incarnation of a group sniff-n-speak, although other similar coordinated projects have been conducted, too. I think I can speak for everyone when I say, I'm delighted with your enthusiasm for the project, Taolady. Some men have wandered over here, and maybe our monthly event will become legend, so that more men will join in.

    Every member, any gender, novice or otherwise, is encouraged to apply an amber-dominant fragrance of your choice and share your thoughts commencing Saturday, October 7. Since not everyone logs in on weekends, you're encouraged to continue to add comments in subsequent days as your schedule allows.

    If you don't join us for October's themed discussion, please look ahead at the tentative lineup and join in on another subject on the first Saturday of each month.

    January ~ Oriental
    February ~ Animalic (civet-, castoreum-, leather-, or musk-influenced scents)
    March ~ Chypre
    April ~ Floral
    May ~ Fruity
    June ~ Citrus
    July ~ Green (2007: emphasis on vetiver)
    August ~ Fresh or aquatic
    September ~ Fougere or men's fragrances
    October ~ Ambery
    November ~ Spicy
    December ~ Gourmand

    Am just starting to get the hang of these boards - thanks to the community for being so helpful. Plan on spending the whole time between now and October 7th wearing anything BUT ambers so it will come as a nice surprise!

    Hey just read the sticky,
    Is there a specific frag to wear or just an amber focused one? Also can boys play too?

    I would love to join in. Is there a list of amber-rich fragrances somewhere? I have lots of stuff, but to save my life I can't think of one that's particularly amber-y!

    Here's how to get a list:
    Go here: http://www.basenotes.net/directory
    Write "amber" into the "fragrance notes" box and voilà!, you've got 682 scents with amber in them.

    There's one amber that's not in the directory that's a favorite: Ambra del Nepal by i profumi di firenze. It has a vanilla base and is a scrumptious comforting amber.
