Re: Fornax the Furnace of Love

I'm amazed that this isn't from a winter collection (because this scent is perfect for cold, freezing weather!). I recently purchased a second-hand bottle from 2014, and to this day it still smells positively lovely (though keep in mind, I don't have any sensitivity to cinnamon oils--and much of my ...

Re: Snake Dance (Unknown)

Since the summer season is changing into autumn in the UK, I just bought a decant of Snake Dance from last year's Retour (especially since I LOVE Pippin Pie, and its deliciously nutty appleness), just out of curiousity (that and I want to find out whether I'd prefer Snake Dance over Pippin Pie befor...

Re: Black Sheep (Dark Matter--Summer 2010)

I was so excited to try this scent when it came back for the Summer Retour (I love boozy scents, I love 'refreshing' notes like menthol at the same time, and I also loved the inspiration behind this fragrance). When my decant arrived, I was SO ready to smell like an alcoholic bad-@ss. The perfume op...

Re: The Pleiades

Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to say that the Pleiades...smells dead-on like a bandung drink. I wore this scent to a family dinner at a Malaysian restaurant--and accidentally purchased a drink ( hey, it was pink ) that wound up smelling exactly like it! Bandung drinks are normally made with rose sy...

Re: The Damned Flower

So, I just received my vial today--and when I took my first sniff I was like, "IS THIS HOW POSSETS DO THEIR IRIS?!" Seriously, this is a GORGEOUS take on that flower. Usually iris scents turn pretty heavy and soapy to my nose--but this feels so light and fresh (without even coming off as b...

Re: Dutch Adonis (Hals)

Violets can be SO very tricky for scents--some violets smell super-powdery, while others can turn heavy and suffocating. But with Dutch Adonis? It's just amazingly fresh and breathable! I was actually worried about the violet notes--but it manages to be so light and float-y without sacrificing any s...

Re: Bacchante-Musky

I tend to steer far and clear from patchouli (I tend to find them so sticky and nauseous), but this scent is cleaner and tidier than I expected! When I first put the scent on, Bacchante quickly gets close and personal on my skin and doesn't *flare* out. Instead I get a soft 'fuzz' of red musk (which...

Re: Mountain (Yoga - Summer 2011)

I just got a decant of this (because there are SO MANY SUMMER SCENTS TO CHOOSE FROM!), and wow I didn't realise how sweet this scent was going to be! To be truthful, this definitely doesn't smell like an 80s Shortcake doll--neither does this scent smell like any of those gourmand 'blueberry muffin/c...

Re: Summer Retour -- Random Thoughts and Review Requests

Put the _ in the _. I love the musical artist and lime. It is more fruit than coconut which I think is a plus. Low throw and medium wear length but it is a great light, cool summer scent. What can I say? I like the boozy scents. Haha! Good choice! I haven't tried Ogden Nash's just yet, but I can de...

Re: Charybdis

Being a born-and-raised thalassophile, I absolutely had to grab a decant of Charybdis because I fell in love with the notes (plus I love monster-ladies, and I've always been interested in the tragical horror that is Charybdis). And I just want to say that I LOVE the first five minutes of its applica...
