Re: Boudicca celebration of life and sharing

Minh Scent, that is such a lovely remembrance. It really seems like Joani welcomed us all and helped us feel at home when we first joined the forum. I was a true newbie when I joined in summer of 2013, both to perfume oils and to perfumes in general. She even helped give me a sense of how the Fragra...

Re: Boudicca celebration of life and sharing

Marisaviola, what a lovely memorial to our Joani. And what a great reminder of how much she loved the dark, sexy Cambiennes and Howl. I think she and I both lobbied hard for Howl when voting time for the poetry collection came around! I just received the email about a special Boudicca Cambienne. Tha...

Re: Boudicca celebration of life and sharing

I won’t be able to be online again until later today, so I wanted to post this while I have the chance. Joani was the closest friend I met through Possets. Even when one or both of us wandered away from perfume oils for a time, we would chat about what was going on in our lives. Our lives were so ve...

Re: Valentine Retour

ETA: Lol, misunderstood -- you've already ordered a decant I take it! Also, Death Match thoughts: I did order a decant, but thanks for the kind offer! My two cents on the death-match duo: Jester I adored as soon as I tried it on my skin. I find it very feminine and wearable. Gioconda took a lot of ...

Re: Valentine Retour

Also eyeing Berenice and The Jester - would appreciate any input there as well! Jester is delicious. Put-a-silly-smile-on-your-face yummy. I ordered a slew of decants this time since I missed that boat last year. I'm looking forward to finally smelling Sappho after all the intriguingly varied comme...

Re: Yule Retour

I've been out of town and just got to open up my latest order last night, and Judith Leyster Self Portrait has edged out Ruined Reputation as my favorite carnation posset! So I had to order a backup and a backup of Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. I really struggled about whether to order a backup of ...

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

This time of year is when we are missing those dear to us. Boudicca, sending you hugs for your Ribbands memory. Sending all my Possets friends hugs for the seasonal crinkles of the heart. :hrt:: Yes, big hugs to you, Boudicca, and to all you dear Possetiers. :hug: I had to go scent-free for the Chr...

Today I layered Clara's Party and Russian Dance for a double gingerbread whammy. It's glorious!

Re: Yule Retour

My decant order arrived and I am SO IN LOVE with Black Death! It is ravishing. It reminds me of some of the dark Cambiennes. <swoons>

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

I wore Judith this weekend (not of the self portrait). It is in my pile of things to review, and I couldn't have given any of the notes to save my life. Today, I pulled it out again and got beyond the faint peanut butter note that I first got in the bottle. (Peanut butter in perfume form.) And I re...
