Re: The "What are you wearing today and general impressions of it" thread :)

Arabian Dance for me today. Warm, cozy, delightful. I think I put this one aside when I first got it because it was too clove-ish. However, I suspect that settling has worked its magic, and this is now utterly perfect on a warmish winter day that is giving the promise of spring, but still keeping th...

Re: Arabian Dance from the Nutcracker (Tchaikovsky)

I'm slowly getting to my stash of perfumes so I can do reviews (and decide permanently what to keep and what to find other homes for). Today, I decided to "blind" test, by grabbing a bottle, reviewing it, then checking the notes to see if my nose is picking up what it should. In the bottle, I get a ...

Re: Angelic Host (5th)--Virtues (Yule 2010)

This one has been on my list since i first realized that any chypre Fabienne made should be something I own. I finally grabbed it during this retour, and (spoiler) tried it on when my mom was here. She liked it so much, I'll feel guilty if I don't give it to her for Christmas lol. In the bottle: The...

Love Spanish Dance! Not sure about Pachelbel's Canon, I may or may not have a decant? I haven't actually tried Spanish DanceR (though it sounds intriguing), so you'll have to tell us what it's like! The one I'm so fond of is Spanish Dance from the Nutcracker. Two different people, and this is what ...

Re: Looking for a forest scent

I can't really think of many deciduous tree/forest type fragrances here (there are a few, but often mingled with wet leaves type notes that make it more damp than what I think you may be going for, or they are more focused on wood and not a foresty type smell), but there are plenty in the pine/fir r...

Re: The "What are you wearing today and general impressions of it" thread :)

Lately I've mostly been rotating Pachelbel's Canon, Mona Lisa, and Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy--so different from each other and all so lovely. Funny, I just ordered Pachelbel's and Spanish Dancer because they are ones that keep calling me partly due to your reviews lol. I suspect I'm going to ad...

Re: Organization/Storage

I used to have mine organized by favorites, then I tried to go by collection. Then, I threw a bunch of them in a box when we moved a few years ago, and now I have them in a hodgepodge pile because I am planning to go through and sort them and (maybe, finally) get rid of the ones that I don't use as ...

Re: Apep--The Snake God

I had been hoping this might be a replacement for Traveller's from Solstice Scents which got discontinued. Oh yes, this is definitely not going to be a replacement for Travelers. That one is much more resinous, and more dry than this one, imo. The caramelized essence (as I think of it) along with t...
