Re: Madame Eglantine (Canturbury Tales)

Starts with honeysuckle and lilacs. Pretty. Then quickly becomes lilac soap. I'll admit that I am not a huge fan of "soap" in my fragrances, but this one works ok.

Re: Gelato: Vaniglia

Vanilla, cinnamon, and the cream note that sadly doesn't play nicely with my skin. I am really amping the spices on this one - which I wouldn't mind, but the cream note tends to go bitter and sour on my skin, and it did it here as well. :cry:
Too bad. I love cinnamon and vanilla.

Re: Osiris

Bottle originally purchased with this release in 2012. Very sweet resinous musk with vanilla. I can't smell black pepper in it per se - it's more like something airy cutting through the deep vanilla musk. It's aged well and smells beautiful.

Re: Fibonacci Curve

My bottle is now 3 years old. I get a creamy skin musk with vetiver and violets on my skin. Really gentle and soft, but with a beautiful whisper- distance sillage. I can smell it when I move around. Still beautiful and very wearable. Think I'll stick this in my current office rotation.

Re: Cybele (Mother's Day 2013)

Unfortunately this is a collection of notes that goes all sorts of wrong on my skin. I tend to struggle with tea notes, grain notes and honey notes. The tea note went sour, the honey note went pee, the grain note went rancid. In the bottle, it smelled the interesting and promising. I had really hope...

Re: 301 (Halloween 2010)

I've had my bottle for a couple of years. Forgot how much I like this. A beautiful vanillic skin musk with an interesting airiness. There is almost a tea note in the background after 30 minutes or so.

Re: Golden Section

I got this during the release. My bottle of Golden Section (now 2 years old) is a study in dusty sweet irises. I'm not getting a lot of "amber" out of this (maybe the dusty note). Actually - it feels like a first draft of That Damned Flower, which I absolutely adore. Same result when I shook the bot...

Re: Courtly Love (Yule 2011)

My bottle of Courtly Love (purchased around 2012) has aged to become a very creamy floral vanillic coconut. Not a beachy coconut. Not even really a foody coconut. More "sniffing an actual coconut". Fibers, the slight floral scent and everything - without the funk that real coconuts sometimes get. St...

Re: The Damned Flower

I'm a sucker for a good iris perfume. This one is absolutely lovely. As Maya pointed out, a bit different and more powdery on direct wrist sniff. The sillage is this beautiful iris violet, very slight hint of honey powder thing that is super pretty. I am soooo ready for spring.
