    Twolf, so sorry you're not in -- maybe you would choose some parcels you were interested in to come to you at some point/s? I think the "pass to the neighbor" would work fine, but you'll never know until you try, really! But because someone is sending something to someone all the time, I'm sure it'll be OK if you join in after you're back from vacation and situating yourself back at home.

    Umm, LOL? I thought it was going to be ONE parcel going 'round the world!

    Haha!

    Well, I got mine yesterday - will need to spend some time sniffing over the weekend and it'll be off to Mumsy next week.

    Just to jump in here for a second, what I'm picturing is that instead of just one giant swap/sample box that everyone's waiting for with random things... you guys are sending out many smaller ones with dedicated themes...

    I would think that while some people love certain houses, or perfumers or whatever, at least teh way I go about sampling is by note/genre. So I would prefer to see something like a box for Vetiver, white florals, ambers, etc... that way you can kind of compare them all back to back, regardless of the house, age, etc.

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

    Agree about themes, not little random things.

    This one is a sort of hybrid. There are some themes, - there are greens, incenses, and maybe white flowers and some houses - Carons, Guerlains, Houbigants, Amouages. I think some people are adding to a house as each package goes around and others are adding something they wish to share. As a pure experiment in friendly, mutual interest cooperation, I'm not sure it matters too much as it's only for fun anyway.

    I absolutely love the idea of themes based on one note. You could always start one. There is no limit to what can be done.

    I agree about themes, so I hope that at some point Houbigants will join in one package. For instance, I had Fleurs l'Original and Rogalal is adding to it Fleurs de Royale and sending it to the next person. Perhaps, by the time it gets to me, the two packages of vintage Houbigants will join together. I've never participated in a circle before, so I don't have expectations on how things will work out, but I am sure we'll have fun!

    I am definitely in!! But I live in NZ and although I have quite a few perfumes and would love to do this, I need to read up on what families they belong to!

    EDIT; On reconsidering, maybe not! It sounds a little sophisticated, selection wise for the generic types I own! I'll stick to ordering samples for now :-)

    I am ready to send the Incense parcel from Rogalal and the Houbigants from Warum to ronni. I believe ronni is on vacation, though, so I will check with her first.

    Right - I have in my hands a selection of new Gorilla Perfumes, plus a secret contraband blend of my own... ready to fly out all over the place. I had to wait for the stuff to be made, hehehe.

    I'd like to send on the samples from package that I received PLUS the ones above. But I am enjoying the samples too much to do that just yet. I might need to wait until the end of the week. I'm only half-way through wearing them all. I've had a couple of surprises... this is so much fun!

    I had a slight delay in sending mine because various bits of life had got in my way and i'm glad I did. There was a spot of bother with one of the Houbigants leaking. I had bought 3ml spray bottles and I had sprayed the Musk in from a spray mist. The liquid must have been highly compressed because the sample got really cold and was fizzy. I has left it covered overnight to let it reach room temp and screwed the lid on. When I returned to it there was a massive leak in the ziplock baggie. The remaining pressure had forced it out. Thank goodness I had followed Hillaires advice with separate bags for each. I refilled and depressurised it and they are on their way to Coopmom.

    The results of testings are in the thread here:-

    I posted reviews for most in the directory, but haven't got around to copying them all into our discussion thread.

    Thank you, Haunani, this is wonderful! That way they will definitely arrive by August 18, that's when I leave (so I'll be able to take some with me).

    I am trying to keep a tab on where all the parcels are from postings. My parcel contained all these from Nukapai.

    I'm sure these were from her

    Heavenly Peach Bouquet
    Gorilla perfumes - Orange blossom - Lust - Imogen Rose - The smell of freedom
    Ormond Woman - Ormond Jayne
    Gold - Donna Karen

    but these? Are any of these the ones from Ronni to Nukapai?

    Ayala Moriel - Roses et Chocolat - Song of Songs
    Insolence
    Jasmin et Cigarette
    Encens Flamboyant
    Potter & Moore - Lavender & Italian Lemon
    Miller Harris - Noix de Tuberose
    Jo Malone - Vanilla & Anise - Sweet Lime & Cedar x2
    Bond No9 - The Scent of Peace - So New York - Fashion Avenue - Bleecker Street - Saks 5th Avenue for her - Chinatown
    Tuscan Leather - Tom Ford

    The Guerlains have arrived with me.... Yippee. Slightly coloured labels so these things are leaking a bit like mine were. I suspect sprays don't like airoplane pressures perhaps. I shall baggy them for onward travel.

    There is also a generous helping of 7 more gorilla perfumes. Thank you Nukapai.

    Hi sophi,
    What was in it? You were not on the original list for this pass the parcel but it would depend who you might you have given your address to. Each person on this circle has only given their address to the one person next in line.

    Parcel movement.... Guerlaines and Lushes over to Coopmom today. I found this parcel was about the max size for testing comfort. The last one I think was two parcels in one, and it had so many it was a bit overwhelming (but still fun). I think I am next in line for Rogalals Incenses...

    Any updates on parcel movements elsewhere? Just for tracking reference, not for hurrying anyone....

    Hi Sophi,

    Maybe Ronni has sent some to you for another reason.

    The incenses and perfumes in our circle parcel would be the following:-

    L'Artisan for Aedes de Venustas EdP
    Aedes the Venustas
    dG Jaisalmer
    Quarzazate,
    Jo Malone Pomgranate Noir,
    Eau d'Italie Bois d'Ombrie,
    and two essential oils: Himalayhan Cedarwood and Virginia Cedar.
    plus these maybe:-
    Arwen elf:- "I suspect I will be sending this package along to ronni by the middle of next week, and I am thinking about adding CdG Tokyo and Zagorsk (smaller samples courtesy of generous Basenoters) and a sample of Avignon from my collection in order to have the complete CdG Incense series."

    If the ones you were sent were these, then try PM-ing Nukapai to see if she has any incenses from Ronni. If she has, then you haven't to send them to Nukapai, if not, then she can give you her address to send them on to her.

    If Ronni is around, then I'm sure she will enlighten you before you need to worry or do anything. There is no rush. I was just checking up. We wouldn't want to hijack any of Ronnies parcels by being too hasty..... or maybe we would!!!!

    What was in your parcel?
