    Default REMEMBER: June 18th, One Star Trash Festival Scent Synch Day!!!

    Hey dear fellows,
    we've got a really nice SSD still pending and it will be next wednesday to celebrate our dear Twolf birthday (ok ok, hehe... also mine ).
    The theme this time is even funnier than usual: just pick a scent from the black list of the one star juices from Mr. Turin's guide, whatever you want, and be part of the party!
    Feel free to post here your choice and motivations etc and have a great fun as usual!!!
    Cheers!


    P.S. for the complete list of the rated scents from the turin's guide folow the link here

    Oh good - I was hoping we were going to have one of these days!

    It will be a hard decision that I will have to think about. But I am sure I will be able to come up with something since I know Mr.Turin "is not fond of" several fragrances that I own.

    I think the Design that has one star is the one for women. The men's isn't rated, so I 'm going to have to change mine to Chanel Allure Homme

    Wow! Seeing all the frags listed like this and being able to sort it is a whole new take on the book. It actually puts some context to things. My sincere appreciation to Magnifiscent for putting this together. Inspired.

    But now I know why sample vials are so important! It let's you try one-star frags on SSDs.

    Chanel Allure Homme?
    One of the Creeds?
    Mechant Loup (I proudly own a whole danged bottle. If being one-star is wrong, I don't wanna be right. On this frag anyway.) ?

    Curses! I'm on the road, separated from my wardrobe, and all of my one-star scents. However, I am traveling with my copy of Perfumes: The Guide, and thus I am forced, against my will, to buy another scent. Oh, the horror. The horror.

    What will it be? Recommendations are gladly accepted. My favorite fragrance blasphemies are sport scents, buzz-saw woods, and redundant aquatics. Excuses to buy them simply don't come along often enough.

    One of the following Perfumes: The Guide 1 star frags it will be:

    Iceberg Twice Homme (***)

    Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentrée
    (****)

    My reason is the three fragrances listed above would be rated as shown in my 'book'.

    Thanks everybody for participating and sharing your thoughts, you never fail to amaze me folks!
    About me, I have at least three one star juices:
    - the animalic valencia Little Italy
    - the woody Tabac Blond
    - the sweetened chypre Pour Monsieur edt Concentrée

    I think I will start with the most loved one, the chanel that I really love and have lots of memories associated with it, and then will run the others during the day!

    I will go for the Origial Vetiver I think. Unless I feel like Erolfa tomorrow. I wish he had given MI one star instead two.

    Two is the worst rating.

    Well, in prep for SSD on the 18th, I thought I'd do a trial run of Chanel Allure before exposing the co-workers to anything potentially toxic.

    Oh god. I've been wearing it 10 minutes and it's giving me acid indigestion. How do frags like this get out the door - it smells like a chemical plant with a couple of those tree-shaped car deodorizers hanging around to purty up the joint.

    I'll give it an hour. Max.

    Thank goodness Mechant Loup is a one-star frag, too. At least that's a frag one can live with. Perhaps Luca foresaw such silliness as one-star frag days based on his ratings, so threw in a couple of five-stars (rated as one-stars) to save us?

    Firstly Magnifiscent thank you sooooooooo much for that list of the Turin ratings. I have printed it off
    straight away.
    I only have one 1* and that is the lovely Cabotine, so I'll waer that.
    I can't believe he has rated the very gorgeous Pi(Givenchy) a 1* - it's the one I love to smell
    on my husband. At least he and I agree on Eau Sauvage, so all is not lost.

    It's Tann Rokka for me today. Described as a "floral mess", although I can't pick a floral note out of it to save my life. Lots of patchouli, amber, cedar and vetiver, though. Yummy.

    My choice for the one-star wonder is "sad iris" - Hermès Hiris. I find it one of the most soothing scents ever. It has helped me feel much better when I have been under the weather, and has come to stay in my wardrobe. Can't imagine life without it.

    I agree. I think Turin's description is pathetic to be honest. This is a beautiful fragrance, refined and superbly crafted. There is nothing sad about it.

    Moreover it is so well done that if you layer it with either Prada Homme or Dior Homme, both fragrances with Iris notes which could be pumped up a bit, it adds sparkle to both.

    Well, the choice was between BlackXS, Gardenia (Chanel) and Mechant Loup.

    I don't have Black XS, but did like it once and never bought as I don't know if I'll like all the 30-50-100 ml of it. My be I should just have it.
    Gardenia - I like the white petals of this perfume very much. Especially when I have introverted mood.
    Mechant Loup. Still doubting if I like it or not. Love the nuts, hate the pickles (there is a note reminding me about pickles that comes from liquorice and anise may be?)

    Well, I agree with Luca that it doesn't smell Big Bad Wolf. But I don't smell Wet Dog either as he suggests. To me it's a Mr. Fox or Mrs. Squirrel in the autumn forest. I like the nuts part of this smell, but a combination of liquorice and anise gives me a strong idea of pickles.

    Happy, Happy Birthday to Twolf & Magnifiscent!

    To celebrate your special day, I couldn't think of anything better than to wear the beautiful Mona di Orio LUX in all it's (initial) lemonhead glory. It's too bad LT & TS didn't stick around long enough to experience all this beauty has to offer.
    Tonight will be MdO's Carnation, a soft as silk skin scent.

    Happy B-days all.

    I shamefully don't own any 1-star'd scents...I think I may have to head to the drugstore in the morning and spritz on some MK & Ash Olsen...pretty much any of them, right?

    LOL! This may be one of the most enjoyable demonstrations of the utility of Occam's razor that I've seen in quite a while!

    Oh folks, you're definitely making my day!
    Thank you all very much! This SSD is such a fun!!!
    Btw, girls you have such a baaaaadddd One Star Trashy taste!!! That's why I like you all! Yeah, talking to you Tdem, Tigs and Taolady, the Three T, the trashy wornderful smelling girls wearing such beautiful scents today: I adore the self assertive "killer tuberose" Taolady, and also the so meditative comfortness of Hiris Tigs, and of course the non floral yet woody-ambergris "floral mess" Tdem! Yummm....

    I went with Pasha and left well enough alone. Do I think this is a masterpiece? Nope. But it's hardly cheap and abominable. It's a bit synthetic, sure, but I've smelled much, much worse.

    Thank you, Rien !

    I don't know why I ever objected a star rating system.
    I only have two in this category (which I love):
    Acaciosa and Garofano. Miel de Bois is on my list to try.

    well what a nice list! what I don't get is why some scents from various houses are totally ignored, does it mean they rate a "0"???

    I will make an ironic choice and dab on the remainder of my Bergamote from le labo, since it costs a fortune! I swapped for a 5 ml decant!

    Mr. Turin certainly has some explaining to do, I mean I would say "de gustibus..." etc, except if that's the case, why assign numbers!?
