    Would you (and everyone else) mind waiting? I'll make the samples and mail them to you tomorrow, for both groups.

    I've just received a lovely package from C Rose with twin samples to add to our boxes. Included are 2 samples each of:

    Malle Lipstick Rose

    Neil Morris Rose of Kali

    Tauer Une Rose Chyprée

    Fresh Cannabis Rose

    SL Sa Majesté La Rose

    L'Artisan Voleur de Roses


    C Rose:



    To which I am adding 1 sample per box of La Rose Jacqueminot received in a swap.
    So far we have 23 rose fragrances with a few more on their way from members.

    I spent the latter part of the day decanting and labeling vials. Once we have the rest of the donated ones, the boxes can go out!

    Today I got a package from warum; she has added twin samples of DSH American Beauty (prototype) and Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose to the groups so now we have 25 different rose scents to sniff and test!

    warum:

    I'm expecting one more package, and then I'll send out the boxes to claresauntie and bookwyrmsmith. As soon as the weather lets me get out that is-- we are supposed to be getting more snow 4 days out of the next 6.

    Yeah, I thought I had 30 and posted it-- then counted only 29 and edited that...then recounted and found I had missed writing La Rose Jacqueminot which I had actually already bagged!

    ...so we're back to testing... 30 roses yay!!!

    So I changed the thread title

    Default Re: Boxes Mailed!-- 30 Roses to sample from 30 Roses & co.

    The boxes are on their way to claresauntie and bookwrymsmith.

    First class postage was only $2.75 per box so you may all want to just relabel/reuse the same boxes.

    Edit: The $2.75 actually does not include Delivery Confirmation; I didn't buy it-- I was juggling about 7 boxes today at the P.O! But it is probably a good idea for each of you to use DC when you send it on to the next person. Sometimes people forget to post that they have received a package and this helps us keep track.

    I hope you don't all hate roses by the time you're done with the box!

    Too much of a good thing?

    Too much of a good thing... is there such a thing?
    (Anyway, a lot of us may just be sampling a portion of these, as some we'll already be familiar with.)

    Thanks for getting there in the mail! (ok, now, I'll try not to be impatient... as a number 5, I'll be getting these in late summer?)

    Very excited! Anyone who hasn't smelled La Rose Jacqueminot is in for a real treat. I have 2 bottles because it's intoxicating but first bottle I got had wonky sprayer that makes it just dribble out over hands. Top is welded on so no way to easily remove without breaking bottle. One of these days I'll figure out how to crack bottle open, pour through cheesecloth and recant into another bottle so that I can actually spray from both so that I can share more widely. Thanks for your generosity 30 Roses!

    a rose by any other name....?

    (just incase anyone's looking for more to add)
    I think something like Montale Black Oud or Ford Noir de Noir would add a nice oud rose to the mix
    Stella is a favorite of mine as a musky rose...
    Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir - PATCHOULI ABSOLU
    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress, Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura, Azure Lime, Champacca Absolute

    HARD TO FIND - Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...


    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community.

There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window.

    Oh good! That was fast-- in fact the mail service was fast for me this week in general-- I mailed 8 boxes /bubble mailers on Wednesday and most have reached their destinations already.

    @claresauntie-- They can't all be winners! 29 to go!

    Claresauntie,
    curious: which one you didn't like?

    I blind-grabbed for my first go and came up with Canabis Rose. I had been interested in smelling it for awhile (sidebar: I even ordered it from TPC but they didn't send it, which happened with 4 testers. Is this an anomaly or routine? ).

    I want to preface this with the following statement about canabis: I don't but I have and for a medical condition I wish I were, but don't (because I have kids I don't want exposed).

    That said, I was interested to smell this, since I enjoy the real deal smell. I was crushed to find Canabis Rose started with a metallic anise note that briskly turned into a pile of sweet tobacco.

    That's it - linear for about an hour at which point I scrubbed. Tobacco notes give me migraines. I wasn't fast enough and the migraine is here. In case you were wondering, the throw is good - hubby asked me from across the room what I was wearing (and said "thank god!" when I washed it off).

    I tried to put on another scent but the tobacco kept rebounding - that sh*t is tenacious! I took a hot and long shower and now am lying in the dark with No.19 (my "leave me alone comfort scent") and Basenotes.

    I never smelled rose, nor did I get the munchies. On the upside, there's PLENTY left in the tester for the rest of you!

    Tomorrow will be a better day.

    xoxo,

    Oh, claresauntie, what a nasty experience for you!

    I don't like Cannabis Rose either --too sweet for my taste. Hope the next one goes better!

    bogsc: Love the new word you have taught us today -- everybody take your pens and put it down somewhere -- "recant".

    Also, please leave a Feedback Entry for 30Roses in the iTrader.

    One time they didn't put my 4-piece Guerlain sampler in. I quickly pointed it out and they pronto sent me the missing samples, and that was it, and that was the only time I had an issue.

    Box 2 has arrived safely here in Alabama!(sorry no cool arrival pics like claresauntie-that's something I haven't figured out how to do yet-)
    I did a bit of preliminary sniffing but I won't start sampleing untill tomorrow -I'm still radiating Tabu for a favorite cheepie for Syncronized Friday.
    Thank you for organizing this 30Roses !

    Good bookwrymsmith, glad you got it! Thanks for posting.

    bogsc, Twolf is teasing...the word is decant. But recant sounds more like what it should be.



  25. #55

    Default Re: Boxes Mailed!-- 30 Roses to sample from 30 Roses & co.

    Twolf/30 Roses..I decant for friends, etc. and have purchased lots of decants. But when I have to move fumes into another bottle specifically because original bottle is broken/problematic, for some reason I think of it as "re-canting" and it comes out typed that way.

    I can see that this is going to be a very amusing discussion and can't tell you all how thrilled I am to participate!

    Claresauntie, hope you are feeling better after your run in with Cannabis Rose. The one time I remember getting really ill from perfume it was a tobacco/rose fume (I seem to have blocked the name) I bought unsniffed from e-bay so I'll approach this sample carefully!

    I happen to have worn Cannabis Rose myself yesterday and can attest it throws nicely and lasts pretty well. with 3-4 light sprays it lasted a good 10+ hours and from at least a few feet away I got a few compliments.
    PS - you might be able to find this in a 30ml bottle form sephora.
