Thank you, Mimi and Roses!
Lafco has Santa Maria Novella too - the best thing is ... I *THINK*..they don't charge California tax. Every little helps ...

Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Thank you, Mimi and Roses!

I love Melograno and Muschio. Will try more.
Anyone tried their Gardenia?
So excited to hear there is a boutique on Melrose!! I have heard they do some great tobacco based fragrances. I wish I would have known they were so close to Scentbar! Guess I have another LA weekend coming up!

I visited the SMN shoop in Florence and was amazed at the beauty of the
place. There are cloisters outside and the shop itself is very grand despite looking
like an ordinary front door to someone's house from the outside!
I bought the Cologna Classica, which I love and then my sister bought me a bottle
of Melograno. It's a STRONG cologne, definitely unisex an I have to be in the mood for it. It is
made from very high quality materials, however.
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
I was at the shop in Soho, NYC few weeks ago. Love the concept, but struck out with every fragrance.
Dans La Nuit Vers Le Jour Sans Adieu Je Reviens Vers Toi.
I love SMN Vaniglia- my favorite vanilla
Citta di Kyoto reminds me of a fresh updated version of vintage Halston (+1 Iris & Incense as stated by Hilaryjane )
Zagara (orange blossom) is a refreshing summer staple for me!
I'd love to get Ginestra.
I'll guess that they're have the same problem as Aqua Di Parma... just too many in the lineup that it's a daunting task to even start working through the line.
Tom Ford Splits:Noir de Noir, Neroli Portofino, Lavender Palm, Plum Japonais, Champacca Absolute, Tobacco Vanille ONE LEFT: Italian Cypress, Patchouli Absolu, Amber Absolute, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood
Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
Haven't posted here in awhile but wore my much neglected Melograno recently. I first encountered SMN when I wandered into a boutique in Venice. I like Iris and Violetta and have tried on Rosa as well. They all last forever on me.
From the ones I have smelled, I liked Peau d'Espagne
I tried the Hay fragrance today and liked it. Reminds me how the northern california hills smell in summer.
