    Default Which fragrance you do not want miss after the end of covid-19 social life?

    Lockdown is easing day by day in the world but social life will be different. Regarding post covid social life, which fragrance/ perfume you want to buy Asap?

    Most likely a Lalique one, preferably in EDP concentration-having enjoyed very much the quality and performance of Lalique Homme EDP

    I haven't waited the end of covid to buy extra fragrances.... but one fragrance I do not want to blind buy and will test as soon as we are done with covid is Cartier Pasha Parfum. I may want to give also another test to Gucci Guilty Oud before pulling the trigger. (assuming they still carry it at Macy's).

    Since you mostly blind buy online on a regular base, why waiting the end of covid?

    As more of my favorite international sites are slowly restocking and slowly resuming normal shipping routines, I have been waiting more than I normally would be placing new orders.

    Probably Bat by Zoologist as I think it’s important to forgive and move on.

    It's a classic smelling fragrance and also affordable. BTW Is it EdP or EdT?

    I really want to test out Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Ambree and the two new Guerlain's Aqua Allegorias - Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia.
    I'm pretty sure I would love them and could even buy them untested, but I'm not going to. I need to fall in love with the scent first and then commit to it, not vice versa

    The amount of older scents I'd like to try out on my skin is growing, too.

    The Covid period makes me want to sell fragrances and I'll probably cull a few once it's easier to ship them.

    I'm looking forward to exploring the Chanel Exclusifs collection more. I tried Sycomore and Cuir de Russie a couple years ago and wasn't blown away, but my taste has developed since then and I'm excited to give them and the newer one 1957 a more thorough testing.

    And I buy a lot on eBay and Etsy and haven't had too much trouble with deliveries, although some from Russia that are placed with cheap shipping are taking longer.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    I have bought backups online of some of my favourites worn often, so as not to run out, but I look forward to being able to visit the stores again once opened. I may want to get a refill of Mugler Chyprissime.

    I'd love to go to Scent Bar but I don't think they can function with a mask requirement. In general, I'm starting to feel like restrictions will eventually be loosened to nearly pre-pandemic levels, with vulnerable individuals continuing to self-isolate. I'm not promoting this idea, it's just the vibe I'm getting. That said, I'm dreaming of the day when I can head up to Scent Bar to test an array of patchoulis and purchase the one that suits me best. I did this exact same thing several years ago and ended up with Santa Maria Novella. That bottle is long gone.

    I have always thought that the Russian sellers on eBay were selling fakes. I'd stay away.

    I feel the same way as you. I'm also in (south) Orange County, so could easily make a day trip out of visiting the Scent Bar. After discovering it's existence a month or two ago, it was quickly added to my bucket list.

    Maybe we can go together! There are other Basenoters locally that I meet up with occasionally.
