    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.

    Amouage Reflection Man got a 1?! a 1?! That is so so so wrong!

    I'll be wearing Cacharel's "Amor Pour Homme" - I have a 75ml bottle of it - might as well start using it more.

    This is fun! I seem to recall hearing that one of the cornerstones of my wardrobe, Allure Homme, got a one-star review from him :-)
    I love cologne.

    Star ratings are listed in descending order in the back pages of The Guide.

    I've got at least three to choose from: Champs Elysees - Anglomania and Amarige!!

    Did someone say 'trashy birthday'? ((sniffing the air))

    Great idea Magnifiscent.

    This idea made me giggle. At work. Thanks!

    What a creative way to go! It's on my calendar. I'll just have to peruse the list and see what I have that even deigned to receive one star.

    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.) ?

    Decisions, decisions.

    It may have to be Diptyque's Eau de Lierre for me. I think that's the only one-star I happen to have a sample of. And though it's far from bottleworthy I kinda like it, truth be told.

    Then I'm planning on respraying with more Erolfa and going out to the bar

    Is it good or bad that I have many, many so-called one-star frags to choose from

    Easy choice!

    Creed Original Vetiver.

    I still need someone to explain how this got 1 star and the very similar but slightly inferior Muglar Cologne got 4?

    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.

    Love it, love it, love it! Thank you, Magnifiscent!
