Re: Boudicca celebration of life and sharing

I spent some time going through threads here on Possets with banter from Boudicca. I first met her here in 2015 and was immediately attracted to her good natured banter and appreciated her knowledge of Possets, as well as her generosity in sharing that knowledge. We interacted on the BPAL forum as w...

Re: Fall and Halloween Retour 2019!

Oooohh...how lucky your decants came in! Thank you for your reviews, Marisaviola! I also join the choir of "Don't discontinue Scent of Night" chorus! I also always look twice at any of Fabienne's perfumes with galbanum. She knew how to use that note. Hmm, Drama Queen and Dark Woods both sound like s...

Re: Fabienne's First Year Death Anniversary

Oh, I love those dark chypres, too!! Sorrow, Death and Dies Irae are out standing. Yesterday I had on Venus Black (another amazing black musk...with pear! Today I finished off my (probably favorite Posset of all!) Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal. But no worries...I have another bottle in the cellar. Thi...

Re: Fabienne's First Year Death Anniversary

You had me pull my Ermine out, Marisaviola. Honestly, I can't remember trying my bottle. It is stunning! Interestingly, I get a toasted coriander top note on it! Except for cardamom, I usually only like my kitchen spices in my curry, but this is a lovely, teasing note. It is not listed, so I am wond...

Re: Fabienne's First Year Death Anniversary

Ah, thank you for your reminder of that thread, Marisaviola! This weekend I pulled out all my Possets (more than 150 bottles and more than that in poppets), trying to make a "system". It was a wonderful activity and I fell in love again and again! I have been wearing Jeanne DuVal (5 ambers (two gold...

Re: Fabienne's First Year Death Anniversary

Oh, I forgot about 14 Carnations, Marisaviola! I also highly recommend Autum (Vivaldi) for those thinking of retour possibilities. I am restesting many scents this month and am quite in love with my collection. Yesterday I got into my Neptune which is such an unusual fragrance. I was going a little ...

Re: Fabienne's First Year Death Anniversary

I have decants of Honey Tongued Devils and Diadem. They might still be available. I just looked at my notes for Honey Tongued Devil and I wrote: "Very lovely on second try. The dead leaves are rather odd in the start but the dry down in so sophisticated." Last year I ended up with a big bottle of Wh...

Re: Fabienne's First Year Death Anniversary

Marisaviola, you mentioned Scent of the Night. It is an absolute favorite! Although Fabienne's gourmands are well loved, for me it is her chypres and fougeres that I cannot resist. I have ordered Mordred's Passion for the retour. Somehow that one got past me. Today I am wearing Sorrow (Galbanum, Pos...
