Pimpinett's Fragrance Wardrobe

    Fond of good, old-fashioned heavy hitters, which shows, I think. My tastes (obviously) run mostly towards wood, spices, powder, resins and incense, but I'm branching out towards chypres, aldehydes, leathers, greens and powdery florals. I try to buy and keep only the ones that really speak to me, but I find it hard to resist a bargain, and I am discovering in myself a slightly alarming tendency to hoard different concentrations and vintages of favourite fragrances.

    Also present, but not accounted for in the directory:
    Byredo M/Mink
    Novaya Zarya Krasnaya Moskva - an early- to mid-20th century bottle, warm, powdery and heady carnation. Lovely!
    Parfums Guelvy Fleur de Tabac - also early 20th century, sweet, powdery oriental with a prominent tobacco note, very beautiful.
    Barngen Shantung EdC - 50's or 60's vintage, citrusy vanillic oriental. Generic, but not bad.
    Parfums Abd Allah - a syrupy vintage mystery from the south of France. Musky amber, sweet, pungent and slightly strange with rubbery topnotes.
    Turkish perfume oil that may have been named Harem, for all I remember - rather like citrus marmalade, the best kind.
