    Default Recommend a fragrance for the person above you based on their wardrobe

    l just nicked this idea from the male forum (thanks ctran!) & thought it'd be fun to try it here. Have as many goes as you want! Maybe it'll encourage more people to fill out their wardrobes too.
    l'm thinking about trying a few musks next (Musc Ravageur is already on my test list) but would welcome any other suggestions.

    Great idea, Teadrop!
    I would love to recommend you Montale Sweet Oriental Dreams and maybe Serge Lutens Miel du Bois.

    Easy -- I've got Warum. Pity the person who follows me!!!

    Warum likes sweet scents like Ambre Narguile, New Haarlem, and the orange of Poeme. Sweet scents to try would be Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir and Dark Amber & Ginger Lily.

    O.K.that was very hard!!
    I may be wrong but I would suggest you try Santa Maria Novella's EDC Classica
    and Baroque by Fragonard. Please don't tell me you've tried them too....

    I just took a look at Kewart's wardrobe, and it pleases me to no end to see quite a few of my favorites residing within. Kewart obviously enjoys a wide range of fragrances, from refreshing colognes (Escale a Portofino) to rich and bold wonders (think Narcisse Noir and Habanita), and a little of everything in between. I am tickled to see my adored Shaal Nur on her wish list! So let me give this a try:

    There are several fragrances on Kewart's list that seem to reveal a taste for the Italian aesthetic, and she has given at least two neroli fragrances, Fragonard Fleur d'Oranger and Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia, a five-star rating. So, I am going to suggest that she try Dilmun by Lorenzo Villoresi. I tried it just recently, thanks to a Basenotes friend, and found it just beautiful! According to the Villoresi website, Dilmun's notes include Citrus, Rose, Neroli, Green Leaves, Petitgrain, Laurel, Opoponax, Incense, Floral Extracts, Elemi, Vanilla, Cedarwood, and Sandalwood.

    I also think she just might want to try one that I had in mind for Quarry, DelRae Panache. It's a complex vetiver-based fragrance that just took my breath away. It had some qualities that reminded me of Shaal Nur, actually!

    I know that Haunani likes Kyoto, so I'm thinking of places to go from there... Jubilation XXV adds dried fruit a'la Chergui, while L'Artisan's Aedes de Venustas adds the dried fruits as well as a sort of pie-spiced dessert vibe that you wouldn't think could work with the cedar and smokey incense, but it actually goes quite well.

    On the creamier end of the incense spectrum, I see you haven't tried Costes yet, or Guerlain Bois d'Armenie. Both would be worth trying...

    Rogalal - hm, Acqua di Parma Profumo perhaps? A round, voluptuous classic chypre that is still in great shape and doesn't get nearly the attention it deserves, I think.

    Default Re: Recommend a fragrance for the person above you based on their wardrobe

    Great, Pimpinett's scent preferences have quite some overlap with mine which makes it easier for me to give some recommendations. Here they are:

    Micallef Gaiac
    Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy
    Millet et Bertaux Parfum Trouvee #1
    A. McQueen Kingdom
    Bois 1920 Vento di Fiori
    JHAG Citizen Queen
    Etro Dianthus
    Coromandel

    ineespenes, My Sin extrait (can be had for quite a steal on ebay at the moment), the older the better (but excellent condition!), came to my mind immediately.

    Or maybe it wasn't that hard -- you just had to find two fragrances I haven't sampled … and you did! Haunani's spotlight on Panache piques my interest, too.
    What a fun thread.

    Sooo... blood-orange looks to lean towards sweet gourmands, certain aldehydic florals, and patchouli, so I'm going to recommend Chanel No. 22 & Fracas for the aldehydes end of it, Borneo 1834 for the patch (it's said to be a darker, rougher Coromandel type) and Bois 1920 Real Patchouly (a totally different smelling patch), and for the sweet, Pink Sugar (just do it! ) and Parfumerie Generale Aomassai (may it be kinder to you than it was to me! ).

    Bookwyrmsmith is up next (or someone can tackle us both... I think mine will be pretty easy .)

    I'll try for Blood Orange:
    how about Parfumerie Generale Un Crime Exotique?
    and Serge Lutens Un Bois de Vanille (sp?)

    Quarry, on my test list they go! Apparently, I do love sweet scents. Should I be embarrassed? In my defense, I'll say that I resisted them a long time

    Sunnyfunny, you can include my recs in your post and I can remove mine to avoid confusion, sorry! I must have been thinking too long!

    Bookwyrmsmith and then Sunnyfunny are up next. I just want to thank Rogalal for the thoughtful recommendations! I do have a sample of Jubilation XXV that I need to explore fully, and I've put the rest on my "to test" list!

    And thanks to teardrop for starting this thread!

    You're welcome! And thanks to Warum for your recs, l obviously like sweet frags too!
    Anyway, Bookwyrmsmith has such a mind-boggling variety of frags, it was really hard to think of one, but here's a wild stab in the dark; Estee Lauder's Tuberose Gardenia??

    Sunnyfunny's turn next!

    Ineespenes, the thread I see in your wardrobe is a love of spicy, rose and Serge Lutens. My recommendations for you would be Lyric Woman by Amouage, Rose Kashmirie by Les Parfums de Rosine or Roses Elixir by Montale. You might like The Party in Manhattan by The Party too.

    For Kiliwia I would suggest;

    Calandre-Paco Rabanne

    Parure-Guerlain

    Ce Soir ou Jamais-Annick Goutal

    Hopefully these are interesting, but you might already have/tried them.

    Brielle, I think you'd love the rare vintage Perfume Sardonyx. From Russia. It's a sixties-vitnage aldehydic floral. Metallic, creamy....
    Chocked full of nitro musks, of course!

    My, it is virtually impossible to recommend something for you, Hillaire... anyway, I'll give it a try: Tabacco by Odori or Absolue pour le Soir.

    Thanks, l have tried Paris & found the violet too sweet, & l tried Opium & found it way too spicy for me. Haven't tried Cinema though, l'll go look that one up!

    For you l see you have no Guerlain or Chanel, so l'll suggest Habit Rouge & Antaeus.

    Mrs H's turn!

    Mrs. H, I think you should try Knize Ten (aren't I smart? oh well, I still remember the other thread ). Rose de Nuit (Serge Lutens) came to my mind as well.

    I agree Memoir Woman sounds as if it should be for me, but I did not like it, unfortunately.
