    Default Today's Wish List...Your Top Three Desired Scents

    Which three scents would you add to your wardrobe today if you could?

    Moi:
    Attrappe Coeur
    Plus Que Jamais
    Carnal Flower

    (gulp)
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Me, too, Divatologist -- me too!

    1.) Purple Patchouli (Fascinating stuff, and not over-hyped as are so many other Ford creations.)
    2.) Tea for Two (Have only had samples thus far.)
    3.) Chamade pour Homme (Have never smelled it, true -- am still intrigued, though.)

    In perfume strength only (does one call it "extrait" now?)

    Guerlain Chamade
    Guerlain Mitsouko
    Caron Nuit de Noel

    I've had all of them in perfume but they are hard to find and 'spensis', as my Lithuanian grandma used to say, nowadays. And the more easily available EDT's are only pale images of the real stuff.

    I seem to have a thing with roses going on, so:

    - Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    - PG Brûlure de Rose

    and....

    - Hermès Doblis

    The first two might be in my future, the third one is only in my dreams, I fear

    1. Real Patchouly (Bois 1920)
    2. Musc Ravageur
    3. Nanadabery Green (I haven't even sniffed this yet, but I have a sample on the way and I just instinctively believe I'm going to love it)

    Will see if I can find Tom Ford Purple Patchouli for a sniff test (they sell Tom Ford pongs in my local uber department store, so there's a chance)...cos I loves me some patchouli and am having a 'purple patchouli' phase at the mo.

    2. Serge Lutens- Fumerie Turque
    3. Serge Lutens- Iris Silver Mist

    Current top three on my FB wishlist:

    Caron Alpona
    Parfumerie Generale Cuir d'Iris
    Two-way tie between Montale's Blue Amber and Lutens Ambre Sultan

    Must add that I've put in an order for Neil Morris Fragrances re-formulated Parfum d'Ida... GORGEOUS stuff that I've decided I simply cannot live without.

    i'm in a happy place with my collection of bottles and decants of perfumes and have enough to last 3 lifetimes... but I would dearly love to sniff Cuir Lancome (I'm working on this one!) and Tuscan Leather.

    I can also do with more of:
    Cuir Mauresque (my bottle is running out)
    Iris Silver Mist (my sample is running out)
    Djedi (my little decant is dwindling)

    Holy cow, Michael... sign me up for a decant when you get your bottle! I often have issues with jasmine (it was interesting for me today - Creed Vanisia started with a jasmine note that went typically over-sharp on me, but quickly dried down to a GORGEOUS vanilla sandalwood, moving Vanisia to my wishlist, so I'm thinking maybe some jasmines aren't completely out of the realm of possibility).

    Anyhow, the Japon Noir sounds *phenomenal*.

    Oh this is tough to just pick three

    1. Montale Blue Amber
    2. Morgane Le Fay Blue
    3. SL Douce Amere
    4. JPG Classique EDP


    Sorry! I couldn't narrow it down to three! There were several others on the list, but I have decants to get me by ... for now at least.

    I'm content right now. Samples are in the mail and I also want to try Chanel Eau de Cologne layered with Gardenia. If any of those are enticing, they will make my list, but I won't know for a week or two.
