Re: Summer Retour -- Random Thoughts and Review Requests

Hi marisaviola! And everybody! I haven't been on here in a long time. Just popping in to say hello! I did place an order for Paisley, I remember trying it ages ago and always wanted to smell it again. Such a great deal at half off! I also bought My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose, basically on a whim. R...

Re: St. Fabian (1/20/2008)

I don't think I ever tried this before now. I don't have much to add, here are my impressions! This is indeed a very pretty rose accord, with a little something extra that is hard to pin down. Rose can be very iffy on me and this one does teeter just on the edge of sharp and/or soapy, for a little b...

Re: Meyer Lemon (Summer 2011)

This is one of the prettiest, nicest lemon perfumes I've had the pleasure of wearing - it is rather dessert-y which I don't usually go for, but I love citrus. And this is a great citrus scent. There may be a touch of very light vanilla or some kind of musk, but maybe not - it's mostly lemon. I've ha...

PS - one of the Possets bottles on the table was Gingerbread Whorehouse - in a church, which is terrific and hilarious!

Re: Fabienne's Memorial Day Oct 15

I love reading these. I just got home from Fabienne's memorial - a Celebration of Life. I want to put down my thoughts while it's all fresh, I know many of you would like to hear about it. I got there about 15 minutes late. I think I was thinking of the last funeral service that I went to, last mont...

Re: Possets and Fabienne on Youtube

I was thinking about these and want to browse and watch them again, but not now. I think I need a little time.

Thank you for posting! They are fun videos, I remember.

Re: How are you lovelies holding up?

Maya that was beautiful eloquent, and exactly why I LOVE perfume. They speak for me, even when I can't speak for myself. They show the world the real me when I feel invisible. They meld and blend with my skin and it's unique blend of bacteria and protein, my DNA. And like my DNA, it smells unique. ...

Re: How are you lovelies holding up?

These are such great posts to read. I love being able to read these thoughts. Another thing that is so interesting to me is that Fabienne was first and foremost an artist. I firmly believe perfume is an art form, and Fabienne was a painter before she made perfumes. As far as I know, she completely s...

Re: How are you lovelies holding up?

Ah, Maya, thanks for starting this thread. I am in a very bizarre headspace. I am sad and disoriented. My colleagues asked me if I was alright (I am usually upbeat...have to be...I teach 11 year olds!) and when I say, "I lost one of my favorite perfumers," they look at me oddly and are uncomfortabl...
