Re: RETOUR!!!!

Yay! I'm 12103. Enjoy your weekend off, though - I know how much more work this is for you guys, but you're doing fabulous as always. Thank you for this Retour, Fabienne! I'm already looking forward to the next one. :hug:

Re: Retour recommendations!

Glad to hear you're hanging in there after your accident, Maya - but I'm still going to offer my thoughts and well wishes here anyway now that you've told us more about what's happened and how you and yours are doing, and because I forgot to include them in my previous post. Like you said, I'm glad ...

Re: Retour recommendations!

Whew! Just got back from traveling in time to put in a Retour order. I was able to find a list of my greatest Retour regrets from last Retour (2013), so I picked them up this time. But of course, the list has gotten much, much longer, what with all the new lovelies, older ones that caught my eye thi...

Re: The New Website and Summer Elegance 2015 Collection

Bravo Fabienne, the new website is gorgeous! I love the flower theme for the categories on the main page - will this change with the seasons? Now to go through the new collection in greater detail - my first pass had me wanting about half of them. I'm loving the selection of art that inspired this c...

Re: Computer screen freezing up while writing reviews

I've got a Sony VAIO running Windows 7; I haven't had any problems with the forum (this one or the old one) acting up until now. It's only happened 3-4 times thus far (in the past couple of days), and usually when I'm writing reviews. That said, I'm having no problems replying to you here. I'm sure ...

Computer screen freezing up while writing reviews

Every time I've tried to post a review in the past day or two, my computer screen completely freezes up while I'm writing it, and I have to force shut down my computer. Thankfully, my browser relaunches with the text still intact, so I don't lose anything and am able to complete my review and post i...

Re: A Lady in Her Own Right (floral)

Hm, this is an interesting one! It starts out very strongly neroli with everything else way in the background, and the drydown (many hours later) is a sort of honeyed orange blossom. This has a lot of staying power and is quite strong -- a little goes a long way. It's quite sweet, almost too sweet (...

Re: Mink Stole (foody)

This right here is the dessert table at a party. A fabulous spread of cakes and petits fours and delectable dainty sweets. And macarons! I love macarons. Mink Stole is totally unapologetic and unashamed in its deliciousness. I love Fabienne's foody/gourmand scents and this does not disappoint. I'm r...

Re: Van Gogh Desecrated For Charity (foody)

This is a pretty, sweet, honey/vanilla/musk scent; it's more of a "subtle" foody - one that you can wear out, or to work even, if you want to wear something foody but not all-out gourmand. It shares that delightful sugar musk note with Bridal Chorus, one of my all-time favorites, but is sw...

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff

Oh, thank you for posting that. I am so glad that you took the trouble to point out the place. It was a great spot where remarkable things happened and it was really lovely. It was a place where I was introduced to some amazing perfumes which have influenced me to this day, including some which wer...
