    I can't recommend anything for bookwyrmsmith
    I don't even think I even know any fragrance at all which she doesn't have in her wardrobe or tried....

    But I am posting anyway because I would like to see if somebody has any good ideas for me!

    Bookwyrmsmith should try Robert Piguet Baghari, current version, the newer Rochas Femme (which I think is a lovely fragrance in it's own right, and should be viewed as such) and my standard recommendation for those who have already tried everything; Acqua di Parma Profumo.

    Nice choices, Ine! I've been curious about three of those four for a while now, and Autumn sounds lovely... the cumin note makes it sound intriguing.

    Pimpinett is next!

    Oops, we nearly missed out castorpollux! What to suggest for the man who's tried everything?? How about something by Teo Cabanel, Hilde Soliani, The Party in Manhattan, or some Montales; Velvet Flowers, Oriental Flowers or some of the Aouds?

    l'll have a think about Pimpinett...

    Ok Pimpinett, l think you may just love Diva by Ungaro, possibly Sublime by Jean Patou, & maybe some rich, resinous ambers like Ambra Aurea by Profumum, or Tom Ford's Amber Absolute.

    Sunnyfunny's turn!

    teardrop, you have such a lush palette and I would like to recommend for you:
    Carnal Flower
    Songes
    Fifi Chachnil

    then for something on the other side of the spectrum:
    Egoiste
    Chanel no 19
    and
    Third Man by Caron just for kicks

    Thank you! I have yet to try the rest of the Cabenels (only tried Alahine), i haven't tried the party in Mhtan or the HildeS scents. I have tried all the Montales (i think!).
    There's so much more to learn...

    You're welcome!

    Daniel, l looked up Cinema, & l like the sound of the almond blossom note! l've smelled the real thing & it has a gorgeous honey-like scent, so l'll give that one a try.

    Thanks rtamara for your recs, it's nice to know l have a "lush palette"! l love Carnal Flower & it's on my wishlist. l couldn't get past the pencil-shavings note in Songes, but Fifi Chachnil sounds nice. l used to own a bottle of Chanel No19, (when l was 19!) but l find it too green & sharp now. l'm intrigued by the masculine ones you mentioned, though!

    rtamara's turn now people, l'm just responding to the other posts!

    Rtamara, you have a luscious wardrobe with a nod towards classics. I think I would suggest for you:
    Lumiere Noire pour femme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian - a classic styled fragrance with a modern nod. Beautiful rose note, and a bite of cumin (you don't seem to be cumin adverse )
    Maybe also Paestum Rose by Eau d'Italie for a rose incense.

    Castor Pollux, thanks for your recommendations. I have just last week tried Tendre Poison a friend of mine had it, and I loved it!
    So hmmm, I must get my hands on the rest of the list.

    cello, I love how you describe my wardrobe and your suggestion sounds really good. I do have a very soft spot for rose, in particular. I have sampled Paestum Rose and like it very much, along with other scents from the same house.
    Thank you.

    rtamara41, how about Caron's Or et Noir? I personally prefer this over Malle's Une Rose. If you like Paestum Rose, maybe you could be interested in Amouage Lyric Man (I absolutely adore the Woman).

    I think Warum was skipped a while back up there, so here you go, my dear...
    Your wardrobe is big on modern florals, leaning towards the lighter side; some citrus, but you're real picky about those; lightly sweet and sparkling is what I'd generally call your collection, with the occasional knock-your socks off classic (like Narcisse Noir.) So my suggestions for you are Gres Cabaret, a light, pretty, easy to wear rose; Chanel Eau Premiere, a brighter, more sparkling take on No. 5 (in my opinion); Kelly Caleche, sweet florals atop a clean, elegant leather (I think you'd really like this one); and vintage White Shoulders, a complex, beautiful floral that is seriously glamorous without ever getting dark.

    And I'm all prepared to do cello's but I just looked at the clock and I need to be at work in an hour!

    So cello's still up!

    Petruccijc - not easy to recommend something with your fab collection (but maybe easier than ubu´s). But here comes two old chypres: Chypre de Coty and Guerlain Sous le Vent. I happen to try them both at the moment and I think you would enjoy them, especially if you like Sagamore And what the heck, try Rose de Nuit by Serge Lutens too - I am seriously thinking of wearing it one whole week. It is that good.

    you're thinking in buy one?
    I bought Antaeus blind, and surprise, i liked. Its powdery, powerful, potent.
    I think im younger a little bit to wear this one (23) but for sure on the meetings at my job i cant go wrong with this one.
    Remind me the scent of my dad (Boss #1), wich i respect a lot.

    Woohoo, l'm so glad you like it! lt's certainly a classic fragrance, & l don't think you're too young to appreciate a classic!
    l would consider buying Cinema, maybe in the Spring!

    I do like Sous le Vent. but not happy with it's longevity - or lack thereof. I have never tried Chypre de Coty, but would like to.

    I have never tried Rose de Nuit either - damn non-exports! I will have to look into this one though. Thanks!
