    OMG- Starblind and ALD Siberian Musk!!

    Go check out the first few pages of the ALD thread...I’ve never seen any bigger love for a perfume by anybody here, than her passion for Siberian Musk!! (at least at the time). I bought samples strictly from her enthusiasm about it. And now every time I see the words, I still instantly think Starblind!

    Whenever I wear Moschino pour Homme, I think of Epapsiou and Purecaramel, because I can never remember which one fights over it being better than or worse than Hermès Bel-Ami.

    Default Re: Fragrances that make you think of other Basenoters when you wear them.

    So many associations, but I'll follow the rules and stick to worn.

    Bel Ami - freewheeling & camel - you boys rock for getting me into a bottle of this

    Mitsouko - makes me want to cry - N_Tesla and MimiGardenia - thank you for remembering Nick, Starblind - and screw the rules - any serious musk is you, I don't wear 'em, but if I did...

    Bois d'Iles - RHM

    Eau d'Hermès - Cook.bot OF COURSE Q.E.D. - and she gets Sycomore ONLY in EdT. Also all the classic Diors except Diorissimo, which goes to my wife!

    POAL - Kevin Guyer & freewheeling

    All Arquistes - Chandler Burr - he gets Hermès Jardins and half of SJP's fragrances - she gets the other half

    Égoïste - of course NCFR, also Bavard - maybe both on all Chanels

    No. 5 - yellowtone of course, but all you Chanel girls, too.

    Garrigue - and many other niche of his beloved style - odysseusm

    Montana frags - aiona

    Havana - bluesoul - he turned me onto it!

    Polo Explorer - petruccijc - he despises it! LOL

    Sel de Vetiver - Chandler & Quarry (best split ever)

    Unforgivable - Asteroth & bluesoul (fellow fans)

    I Am King - Chandler

    Boss The Scent - Grant - he gave it props and it stuck with me - I waver on the buy!

    Kouros - purplebird7 - her review cracks me up. Any scent with benzoin, especially Body Kouros, makes me think of her, from the note projects

    Original Santal - talkingmuffin, Asha - Asha clued me in to how good this scent, very lightly applied, really is.

    Shalimar - Mike Perez!

    Genghis Khan - hednic - 100% - there is no other!

    Viking - Tspencer - the great defender - he earned it!!!

    Bleu de Chanel + Eau Première - Ken_Russell - this is a mental state of precision and sophistication - "Being Ken_Russell" - this layering combo is elegant but a younger and somewhat different/earlier me - I only wear it dressed up - so I think of Ken to get my head right. All I can say is it works!

    Nanadebary Green - Quarry!!! None other!

    Avon - Varanis Ridari - ditto The Dreamer now!

    Versace L'Homme - SculptureOfSoul - also Amouage Epic Man

    Bleu de Chanel - ChuckW, rum, speckmann, more!

    Yatagan - "that dude with the massive collection of vintage Yatagan who only posts about Yatagan"

    Roja Dove Anything - Jon Rodgers

    MI - N. Cal. FR & samplermike

    Windsor / Royal Mayfair - Brian Chambers

    Black Opium - ClockworkAlice

    Twilly / Trilby - it just stuck in my head when you wore this! And now Libre because I have YSL L'Homme Libre and you wear the new women's!

    Many more but wife is complaining! TTYL!!!

    Haven’t been on the forums much lately but popping in here.
    These are just some of the fragrances that come to mind either because the person introduced me to it via sample, or we share a preference for it, or their comments set me to seek it. Sometimes a certain note will make me think of particular basenoters.

    Timeless & Occur!, but really any Avon I reach for - Varanis Ridari

    Vintage Bal A Versailles, Madame Rochas, Femme, fem. classics - grayspoole

    Mouchoir de Monsieur, Givenchy Gentleman, Jules - Bavard

    House D’Orsay, especially deep vintage - PStoller

    Nahema, Iris - DrTricia

    Vintage Samsara PDT & Mitsouko PDT, vanilla, sandalwood - NCal

    Lauder for Men, Oud Palao, vetiver - LiveJazz

    LaNuit, Bottega Veneta, good old Woodhue & Safari, also Diorissimo (not) - Cook.bot

    Private Collection & 1000 - Starblind

    And two on my try list - Narciso Rodriguez for her, and Avignon - ClockworkAlice
    ”I want all the perfumes”
    Currently wearing: Oro by Roberto Cavalli

    Chanel No. 19 always makes me think of RoRo, because he is the ultimate human database of knowledge on dating the vintage bottles by design, packaging, and labels.

    Yes! No. 19 also reminds me of jathanas (not around much now) who was not super-big on femme frags but liked that one a lot. Also way-off-scenter, a strong advocate back in that day under his old nic. Those were the years of stupid fights over stuff like Creed, Kouros, feminines on guys, etc. Be glad you missed it!

    A little trivia, Millesime Imperial happens to be the one that I own the most bottles in my collection.

    The vintage gold plated bottles from the 2000s are a beauty, they smell excellent.

    I'll always think of Redneck Perfumisto and L'Homme Blanc Individuel when I wear Curve for Men by Liz Claiborne. They keep the flame burning bright for that line.

    ahh, yes, I forgot Cook.bot and Sycomore EdT, and Starblind and Siberian Musk. I don't wear those fragrances often, I should dig them up.

    No. 5, Reve Indien PerfumedLady — I remember talking with her about the different vintages of No. 5 and she was delighted when I fell for my vintage 1940’s sample.

    With Love, Jaisalmer, Cadjmere 18Quarry— We both wear With Love, as she said, and it’s special to each of us. Q helped me get more With Love when I was running out by alerting me of an eBay listing! Many other things make me think of her, such as the original Exclusifs, which we first tested in person together.

    Sycomore, Diorella Cook.bot — We share admiration for these two, among others.

    Chypre Siam Bavard — He was influential in my obtaining this one, among others.

    Vent Vert, Chamade grayspoole (she sent me these vintage samples— so beautiful)

    Shalimar Ode a La Vanille Sur la Route du Mexique, Sous Le Vent, Egoiste- N.Cal — he got me hooked on the Shalimar Vanille series, and so many more things!

    Cheap & Chic I Love Love, Pamplelune — ClockworkAlice— I think she choose to wear the Moschino because of me

    No. 19 Poudre, Y by YSL (feminine) — Freewheelingvagabond — he got me interested in these two

    Sira des Indescestrum nocturnum — we had a long conversation and sample exchange on “sweeties” that culminated in this purchase— my vacation scent

    No. 5 L’EauRedneck Perfumisto — We were early adopters on this one together.

    Galop d’Hermes often makes me think of cacio and the Nagel Rotten Fruit Accord Pass, where I first encountered it. But I also think of him when I wear Eau de Magnolia, because he suggested it to me during my Magnolia quest.

    gimmegreen first told me about Mito, and I coordinated with ProustMadeline and Juxtapozbliss to buy it! Juxt was pretty much my constant sniffing buddy on the Basenotes Chicago trip in 2019, so Hilde Solianis, Amouages, and many others make me think of him.

    It was ClaireV’s intriguing review of Traversee du Bosphore that first piqued my curiosity about it.

    There are about 100 scents that make me think of Ebenas and yellowtone! Particularly classics and modern classics from the Turin Top 100 Quest.

    So many more! I could go on and on!
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Marand75 and his apt description of forest on a hot day came to mind, when I last wore vintage Agua Brava.

    Varanis/Zealot with his level-headed and non-hyped "vintage vs. reformulation" assessments have sometimes sprang to mind, when I've noticed little difference between a vintage and its reformulation (which according to some are supposed to have a night and day difference).
    Spray less, love more.

    Cheap and Chic I Love Love by Moschino - Kotori! Yes, I did try it several times after reading your recommendation and description of it, and eventually got a bottle
    I also kind of started associating Shalimar Cologne with Kotori, too.

    Samsara - teardrop. Her love for this fragrance is well known
    (oh, and also Alien! but I only have a tiny sample, so it won't last long)

    Lolita Lempicka - HouseOfPhlegethon

    Moonlight Patchouli by VC & Arpels and any from Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire series - CuddleCat

    Terracotta by Guerlain - yellowtone. I remember how you did a wonderful presentation on it in a thread where we talked about different scents for three days, and this scent became about you since

    Mon Guerlain - Trilby Lark and FiveoaksBouquet - and your wonderful duet loving this fragrance loud and proud in Why did you wear... thread! You both have other scents that you also adore, but that's the one that I also own and like

    Cabochard and anything that has some green, grassy or galbanum facets in it - Cook.bot
    And also Bottega Veneta because that's the one we both actually like!
    But when I wear Bottega Veneta I actually think of all of you Basenotes ladies because so many of you love this scent. It's because of all of you I tried it for myself

    There are definitely more but that's all I remember right now

    And oh, I already finished my Black Opium that a few of you came to associate me with. And no wonder, as it's the scent that got me here in the first place. Maybe I'll have to replenish it after all

    Ebenas has many associations in my portfolio:

    ...Fleurs de Sel by Miller Harris -- because she muled a bottle to me all the way across the Atlantic when it was discontinued.

    ...Jungle L'Elephant by Kenzo -- because she snitched a spritz from every airport duty-free and terrorized her fellow passengers with it for years.

    --all the Bruno Acampora scents (especially Prima T) because she was the first person I heard mention them and now I love them.

    ...Revlon Flex Shampoo -- because she and I were both nostalgia-fiends for it and she travelled half-way around the world to obtain a bottle of it.
