    Default I Don't Know What - Fragrance Enhancer by D.S. & Durga

    I heard about this for the first time today, from an email from Arielle Shoshana. She explained the concept as a fragrance with a whole bunch of base notes whereas elsewhere (including here in BN DIrectory) it is being marketed as a 'fragrance enhancer".

    Anyone wear this with another fragrance?

    I sniffed it yesterday at Arielle Shoshana but didn't try it out. Maybe next time...but of course I'd need to try it with something I'm familiar with to see if I notice a difference. She and Katri were discussing how it seemed to enhance the citrus aspect (I think...wasn't really listening...was testing stuff ) of a particular fragrance...I don't know which one.

    Don't get enough WAC in your perfumes already? Buy this for $260/100 ml so you can add some more...

    Ingredients from D.S, Durga website-- bergamot essence, Iso-E super, vetiver acetate, civettone, firsantol, ambroxan super.

    Not all 'basenotes' then -- I'm intrigued

    Eeeek! So a lot like spraying Molecule 01 on top of your frag?

    From the look of it, it’s just a bottle of aroma chemicals with outrageous price tag. Why can’t we just buy bulk ingredients from Perfumer’s Apprentice for 10% of the price?
    The French have a phrase for it. The bastards have a phrase for everything.

    It is, and you can This is another one of those "fragrance enhancers" and/or "perfume that doesn't smell like perfume" type fragrances which seem to be targeting "millennials" and the modern fragrance uninitiated who want to smell good without smelling like they want to smell good. I'm not sure if younger people genuinely prefer this type of fragrance, or whether this is just typical marketing spiel trying to tell them what they want Either way I don't think these type of fragrances hold much interest for genuine frag-heads

    Sounds a wee bit expensive.
    At least you can get a sample form Luckyscent for $6.00 for experimenting.

    Sounds like a good option.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
