    Default January 2012 Blind sniff

    Let's post here about the January sniff. Or Twolf will get mad at us and give us a good and well-deserved spanking.

    Really? It is not in her bag of tricks, I don't believe so.

    What's the theme?

    Sounds good already.

    Jalaine Citrus Dream, Angel Schlesser Oriental Dream and Yves Rocher Ode au Reve?
    Or, how about Montale Sweet Oriental Mess (I mean, dream), Anna Sui Something Equally Uninspiring and Marina de Bourbon Reverie? Oh no, wait a minute, it was Gloria Vanderbuilt, Princess Marina had Reverence.

    hahaha, it will not be quite that easy, I am afraid! I did not even smell any of the above, I am afraid. Maybe Oriental Mess?

    ROFL I sooo love those names, especially Sweet Oriental Mess)). I have not smelled any of those either. Oh, I love the idea of a dreamy theme. On the downside, as of today still no package for me...

    meowmo, no there is no limitation. Well, maybe to fragrances that exist in the database?
    OVincze don't worry, they will be there. Maybe if they come by the end of the week we could start the sniff this weekend.

    That would be great, except that weekends do not work for me, sorry about that. I go out and/or travel in the weekends and no longer have net at home and would hate to have to come in to work to do the sniff on the weekend, so sorry... let me know if this is a problem.

    It would work, of course! I thought you were posting to inform you had received them. Darn it.

    DD and I are early risers, Warum is a late bed-goer, so we should be covered at any time convenient for you.

    Default Re: January 2012 Blind sniff

    OVincze, I am sure we can figure it out.
    Given the time and availability differences let's do this sniff slowly. The last sniffs were very fast paced and given TWolf's experience at guessing notes, I would like to give everyone a chance to actually spend some time with the perfume. So, once the sniff starts, you can post your impressions and notes guesses for about a day or two without Warum or myself giving you immediate and direct feedback. We will be here to tell you if you are on the right track but it won't be after every single guess. After that time, the three of you should have a description of the scent and a short list of notes that you more or less agree on. Only at that time we will start giving you more precise answers and clues, in case you did not already guess the perfume. What do you all think?

    That all sounds cool darkdreams, now I got some great news! When I arrived to the office today the receptionists had a puzzled look on and told me I got a "weird" package and they had to open it since it had the name of the company on it but could not guess what it was ROFL. I am delighted to inform you that the samples are here, YAAAY! Now pretty soon I can start to embarass myself, this should be fun. Today I am wearing Love, Chloe but if you want to start tomorrow, that would work with me too. Thanks for giving us time, hope the fumes are not waaay offensive or smell horrid as we were joking at the reception that the entire office will smell like poop...

    I am in Europe as you know, not sure where in the US you are but I start around this time which is nightime in the West Coast, you can let us know what would be a good time, we can discuss it. Have a great day all,

    Ursula

    Kalli, thanks for having noticed that. It might -- or might NOT -- be one of our clues. One never knows.

    Sorry guys it sounds kinda confusing to me now, what is our clue? Also, you are starting to sniff already? Doesn't it work like the host tells us when and how to begin? We do not even know the theme yet, correct?

    Default Re: January 2012 Blind sniff

    Well, unfortunately I will be leaving soon for the day. I will be back tomorrow a.m., that means within about 16 hours or so..., I wonder what I should do, if I should take the samples home and sniff and make notes or start together. Yes, getting itchy fingers too for sure but do not really know how it would work. In case we do start today I am here for another half an hour or so that we can start together then I guess I would just take notes at home and type them in once I get to work tomorrow. Also, would you recommend sniffing first out of the bottle, then on a strip and then on skin?

    We know we will be a great team thanks to Twolf, well, you may not agree with us though))

    I just logged in now! I am glad to hear the good news. Let me read the messages from my co-host and I will be back in just a couple of minutes.

    Default Re: January 2012 Blind sniff

    Ok, I have almost left but waited a bit longer)) I will wait and see what you say and whether I should start sniffing at home and then if you give us the green light then I will just take notes at home and type them in once I come in tomorrow morning.

    This is very exciting!

    Well, given that Ovincze cannot sniff today anymore and I am at school and will have to leave in about an hour, let us start tomorrow morning. Here is the plan. Everyone can start smelling when they wake up, which will obviously be at different times, depending on location and schedule. After a first sniff you should post your impressions and preliminary guesses, initially without reading what the others wrote. After this, throughout the day, you can discuss and consult with the other sniffers. During this time, I will be home and I will let you know how you are doing, without giving away too much. Towards the evening, Warum and I will give you more precise feedback on the guesses. Depending on where we stand we can make a plan for the following day.
    A few ideas for the new sniffers (inspired by the queen of organization-Twolf):
    Try a little perfume on a piece of paper (for example a coffee filter or even business card) as well as on your arm.
    Try to establish if the perfume is new or old, marketed towards men or women, if it is edt, edp, extrait, its general classification.
    Try to guess notes. Sometimes it helps to make mental comparisons with other similar perfumes you smelled.
    Post.
    Read other’s posts. Revise. Post again.

    The theme will be posted when I get home this evening.
    Everyone is encouraged to participate by helping the sniffers or by asking them questions.

    Coool and thanks so much, I really hope I am not too much of a pain and causing you too much inconvenience. Ok, I will start in the morning then; I could sniff tonite, just cannot post as I do not have net at home. Have a great day everyone.

    See you all tomorrow. OVincze, even if you start tomorrow morning you will still be ahead of everyone. I am looking forward to seeing your first impressions.

    Well, thanks, I am not sure I am looking forward to seeing my impressions as they will likely be totally off but I am already very excited and having fun! Ok, I got that mine will be the first post. Have a great day.

    I forgot to answer an earlier question: no clues were given or are to be read between the lines yet. The theme will be revealed in a few hours, and that is it!
