    The BV dry oil was lovely too... May go back and get that to layer with it.

    I love lilacs as a flower, kalli, but it doesn't seem to be a popular scent in perfumes. I probably would have never sampled En Passant if I hadn't received a generous sample from a BN buddy. (miss you, Whitefluffy!) There are some muted green aspects, but nothing sharp. It's quite a soft scent. I think you should try it & I know you don't like green notes! Now I need to find a sample of the Guerlinade that Xscent recommends.

    Danieq, I'm green with envy over those beautiful bottles! Bellodgia is a gorgeous scent. Did you ever get it open? Please do sniff & tell.

    To be relevant, I did get a great deal on a backup bottle of Mito. I just can't be without this stunner & now I can spritz with abandon!

    Hello everyone! First post here! Yesterday I blind ordered the new fragrance from Patricia Nicolai - Musc monoi. Altough I promised no more blind buys but I just couldn't wait for samples to become available online and it sounded like a nice summer frag and something I should like based on the notes...So we'll see...Wasn't too expensive anyway, I bought the small 30 ml bottle directly from the site so we'll see...fingers crossed

    Congrats on the Mito. I do believe Kumquat has Guerlinade too and maybe able to chime in with her thoughts. Another beautiful lilac is Opardu. It’s not as front as centre as it is in Guerlinade, but it's definitely there and it's sublime.

    Today I found a tiny bottle of Mystere de Rochas on ebay. No other bidders! This was one of my favorites years ago. I can't wait!

    Genie Jeanie,

    My Belladogia is openable in terms of I can get off the cap and spray and it is a wonderful, wonderful scent. So rich and the drydown is so much more......MORE than the vintage EdC of the same which I also have. However, as to the travel case, I can't seem to open it to see how full the bottle is. I forgot to ask the hubby to give it a try. I wish I could find instructions somewhere as to how to open these old cases.
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    Guerlain Tonka Impériale - not exactly a summer scent, but I find it not too strong so I should be able to wear it on the cool rainy days like we're having today.

    Congrats. Haven't tried any from this line but wanting to sniff that jasmine one, Hedonist(I think?) had good things to say about it.

    Genie, I think it's certain green notes I don't care for rather than green scents and no, unfortunately, lilacs aren't too popular. Which Mito did you get? Extrait, Voile or Edp? Haven't sniffed this one.

    Orpadu I probably wouldn't like cause of the gardenia. Pacifica has a good lilac for a cheaper one but the dry down is a bit syntheticy smelling.

    Tonka Imperiale is one of your Guerlains too isn't it, Twolf? I remember not liking it but don't think I am huge on tonka 'soliflores'.

    Yes the Jasmine is excellent.
    But I prefer the extrait over the EDPs.
    I feel like the compositions were made for an extrait concentration.

    Mine is the EdP and you're probably quite right there, hedonist - it's unusual 'though and will be refreshing in the warm weather.

    @ kalli - It's odd that the Directory here shows Iranzol as specifically a feminine scent as that wouldn't be my first thought on trying it. (Will look into this later).
    The box blurb describes it as '....full bodied masculine resin fragrance.Softened by damp green grass and fresh buds in flower'

    Wandering in House of Fraser spotted Arpege by Lanvin edp at 30% off. Had a quick spray and fell in love but walked round for another hour and then went back and bought. I remember trying this one years back and not liking.

    Mr. Fantastic worked his magic and opened the Bellogia travel spray for me. Imagine my delight in discovering how full it is! I could not be more pleased and I will feel more free to fully enjoy it knowing that I am not about to empty the last remaining drops!

    Playboy VIP- not for myself, but as a "symbolical stocking filler" (even if it's many months before Christmas and other winter holidays and even if the gift completed by this will be handed out months before these occasions) for a larger mixed assortment of scents, grooming products and accessories. For someone special just discovering a steadily growing interest for gourmand notes and fragrances.

    I have the Iranzol extrait... Starts off with a somewhat disconcerting earthy mushroom note, but the drydown is beautiful. I also have the jasmine, musk and seplasia, also in extrait. The jasmine and musk are my favourites.

    Catching up on my reportage. These three: Vintage purple flocked box Shalimar extrait, our own rynegene's Madhat scent, American Rust, and a honking huge bottle (16 ounces, about 3/4 full) of very vintage Fabergé Ahprodisia "cologne extraordinaire". The Shalimar is grandly dirty, the American Rust the most straight-ahead non-sweet, dry, dry tobacco a person could ask for, and the Fabergé is recognizably my beloved Aphrodisia, albeit slightly "carmelized", by age perhaps. How old is it? Well, the box had New York 17, as opposed to 10017, so it's pre-Zip Code old. The drydown is a perfect chypre, mossy and labdanum laced, with some ambergris or a stand-in providing a marine/salty note, and is identical to the drydown of my smaller 70s-era cologne formulation (a cologne as tenacious as todays EdPs). This "cologne extraordinaire" formulation requires a more lavish application. No matter, there's lots of it! I even sprinkled some in my bath water.
