  1. Photos of collection + curio bottle fun!

    Mostly for resource purposes, specific bottles referred to in discussions and also a log of the items for split and sale. (Save getting the sales/splits thread getting too huge!)

    First up.

    3 bottles of Tuscany.
    Bottle on right is the one samples have been shared with fellow BNers.

  2. MIA Fragrance Review: Spicebomb Infrared by Viktor & Rolf (2021)

    This one is quite spicy! I'm not sure what happened between the release of Spicebomb Infrared by Viktor & Rolf (2021) and the previous flanker of Spicebomb Nightvision Eau de Parfum (2020), but evidently someone decided to steer the theme of the line back to its namesake with this release. In my opinion, it's for the best, and the concept of "Nightvision" could have very well just been its own pillar range, rather than have tenuous association with the original Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb ...

  3. MIA Fragrance Review: Y Le Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent (2021)

WIth that in mind, I'll keep my thoughts on this flanker pretty brief because to expand upon it is really just talking about the original pillar and you can read that over at the relevant review for the scent. I guess it's something of a nod to Ferragamo for ...

  5. 31 Days of Iris: A Day of Rest and Housekeping

    During this project, I am assimilating a list of tempting iris fragrances that I have never heard of. Iím not going to share them just yet, because some appear to be unknown bargains that I, selfishly, want to purchase before I share them with any potential readers.

    In the meantime, a confession: I bought some Insolence EDP this morning. I am trying to compete this project without spending fortune on new perfumes, but I really want my Insolence EDP in the old style bottle. I ...
