Re: Silver Oude

I'd be interested to hear how it compares to Zombie if anyone's tried both:) This one sounds like it's a little lighter on the oude.

Re: Yule 2015!!!

Yay, looks like a fantastic collection! And free shipping until Jan is a great gift:) After looking them over briefly: Frida Kahlo is at the top of my list. I love Fabienne's carnation (and amber) and the pepper and musk sound like a great combo. Moonbux Coffee with vanilla and cream should be heave...

Re: What Do You Want For Yule?

Not really related to the subject of portraits, but has there ever been a Silver Frankincense and/or Myrrh? That would be cool to have for Yule one year.

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff

I got Gingerwitch! It's lovely. It smells to me like Gingerbread with light lemon sauce over it (a great way to serve gingerbread if you ask me). The only reason I didn't get a large bottle of it is because Gingerbread Crackhouse and Gingerbread Whorehouse are soooo good as ginger scents I probably...

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff

Did anyone get Gingerwitch? I'm wondering if it's anything like Gingerbread Whorehouse which I LOVE, but I'm nervous about the almond. I wish I had gotten a decant:(

Re: Halloween 2015

Zombie (marshmallow & oud) sounds like my holy grail too! Other must-have's for my decant order list: Min-Min (sandalwood, leather, patch, rose) Autumnal Equinox (nuts, spices, rose) Manticore (rose, cedar, grey musk, vanilla, a touch of aquatic?) Sound interesting but may be risky: Strigoi (maybe t...

Re: Rose

I ordered Woman during this past Retour, which is a deep, rich, sensuous rose. It feels like a velvety vampy red. A very special blend, I'm glad to have it in my collection. There was another rosy Posset's that I used to have a sample of that reminded me of a vintage Caron perfume, but I can't for t...

Re: Retour recommendations!

A big thanks to everyone who took the time to give advice for this Retour! Alas, I was only able to swing two bottles :cry: as my budget doesn't allow for too many blind buy risks, but I'm very excited to get the ones I chose. First, I had to get Pauline as so many have said it's their absolute favo...

Re: Madame X Squared (Summer 2009)

I'm getting mostly a lemony-ginger musk on my skin. There's a little hint of fresh coconut in the background, similar to the coconut note used in Silver Coconut. It reminds me of ginger lemon tea. Very refreshing for summertime.
