    Default Re: Bourbon French Parfums - a taste of Louisiana

    December 2010 update thoughts:
    WE GOTTA DO THIS!

    I suppose I'd better start a new thread with a lucrative title and get a feeling from peeps as to which weekend we should target.

    Anyone had any experience with them at all ? I won't be able to order anything right now due to work commitments abroad,coming up real soon ,darn it but if I could, I think I would jump in there to test.

    I have Kus Kus as well. My husband was in the area on business and I asked him to stop in an pick up the smallest bottle of what he thought I would like. I liked it. It was a powdery, warm fragrance. He enjoyed sampling and said the staff were friendly and enjoyed helping him out on his quest. It did smell old world and unrefined. It was a curiosity purchase, that's all.

    Kus Kus is great. Quite a few Basenoters are enjoying that one now.

    I just had fun reading through this thread again and remembering when our meet-up was still just a nascent glimmer in the eye.

    I also enjoyed seeing this thread revived, since I was at the meetup. Kus Kus is my favorite from the sample pack, and I will probably buy a bottle of both the parfum and the EDT when I run out. I've been enjoying the La Pluie soap, too - a very light, clean floral.

    Matildaben, I love La Pluie. I'm sorta regretting not getting that one. I can always order one when my sample runs out.

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."

    Anyone ever tried BF's Voodoo Love? It's sex in a bottle. Lots of cloves, civet. I had a small sample sent to me in a swap. Men complimented me when I wore it.
