  1. Re: Why did you wear what you wore today.. June 2021

    Once again in Mugler Angel Nova, as its mesmeric quality cannot be denied.

    Re: Basenotes Trend Watch

    I think the oud era has filtered into the mainstream to a point where it is there but not such a novelty any more.
  8. Re: Have you ever noticed cleaning the sprayer nozzle actually improving the scent?

    I’m pretty sure it’s real because the new fresh perfume coming out of the bottle dissolves the oxidized residues and picks them up in the spray. The residues might be dissolved away completely after...
  9. Re: Have you ever noticed cleaning the sprayer nozzle actually improving the scent?

    Yes, if infrequent wearing has allowed residues to accumulate and oxidize around the nozzle they can taint the perfume being sprayed. Cleaning the nozzle definitely improves the scent.
