    Default Other Aussie forums? + Diptyque in Brisbane

    I've been out of the loop for a few years but around 2007/2008 I used to lurk a bit on Basenotes as well as another perfume forum which had a fairly active Australian user base. The site was a bit more female-dominated than BN and all I remember is that it had a purple or lavender background. It's not Makeupalley or the Vogue forums. Any idea what I'm talking about, or can anyone suggest other fragrance websites that have a more active Australian community?

    Also - any Brisbane people around? You might be interested in checking out Ollie & Lloyd in the Emporium in the Valley, they currently have a few Diptyque 100ml EDTs on sale for $99 each and some room sprays for around $60 each. The perfumes were Olene, Jardin Clos, Ofresia, Oyedo and Eau Lente (but I bought one Eau Lente and I'm not sure if it was the last bottle). Of the room sprays I remember seeing Choisya, Santal and I think a gardenia one.

    Hi Clare,

    Not sure about the female dominated part (from a scent perspective of course) but if theres a forum with a strong aussie community keep me in the loop. That being said ive spotted a fair few active aussies on here

    There's a social group here: http://www.basenotes.net/group.php?groupid=75
    Maybe one of those members will recall the site?

    Anyone figured out what the Aussie forum Clare was referring to? I've also noticed there are a few very active Aussie Basenoters around here, but not enough. Looking to do local splits and trades.

    Tried applying for membership about a week ago but I still haven't received a response. I thought perhaps the group was no longer active.

    It seems to me like that group is no longer functional, I tried applying for membership about a year ago still haven't heard anything back. I have tried again today, let wait and see what happens.

    Definitely functional. There's a number of us that are active.

    Let's see how the owner of the group goes getting back to you guys over the next few weeks otherwise we'll see what we can do to get the admin passed to active members.

    Welcome to BN mate

    You will find plenty of aussies around on these boards, the BN group itself is pretty quite these days but the ozscentsplits posted by laph further up is active and always buzzing.

    That's unfortunate. I did apply a few weeks ago, but I think I'm too new/inactive to be allowed in. Sad.
