Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff

Has anyone tried "Luncheon on the Grass" yet? The lemon curd, and melon sound intriguing but I don't know about the biscuits. I'm trying to narrow it down to stay within my budget but so many in this collection sound good!

Re: Musk

Thanks for the recommendations and the descriptions of how you perceive the different musks! I'm afraid I missed out on Diamond:( I was taking a breather from perfumes when the spring collection came out. I'll put it on my Retour list!

Re: Musk

Oh, I found it on her blog https://possets.wordpress.com/2012/07/05/musks/! That does help explain the differences, but I agree Minh Scent, it's hard for me to smell the difference sometimes. Musks are kind of elusive to me-- I know it when I smell it, but I can't really explain how they smell.

Musk

Enjoying the drydown of The Damned Flower got me thinking about musks. Fabienne describes this one as having "earthy musks". I'd love to know if any other Possets have this same note. Which musks are your favorite? Favorite musky Possets? I love most musks, but a few can be too sharp and screechy. I...

Re: Stewart (Dark Matter 2010)

I really like this one. I'm getting mostly creamy woods and a gorgeous leather note. There's just a hint of agarwood that gives it some depth. Very polished and smooth, and I agree, perfectly unisex.

Re: Silver Leather-Dry

I am also a leather lover, as well as a fan of the Silver base, so I was really looking forward to this one. The leather is in the forefront here, and smells very luxurious. I get the impression of a buttery soft, high-end designer handbag. The silver adds a touch of sweetness, like opening the hand...

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff: Valentines

I third the excitement over the smokiness of Silver Incense. Strangely enough, when I was a smoker I couldn't stand smokey scents, they made me feel nauseous, but since I've quit I really enjoy them. I'm also interested in Hylas and the Nymphs now. I'm not really a fan of aquatics so it wasn't even ...

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff: Valentines

So is the wish list for things you eventually want to buy that are currently available or to remind us what we want at the next retour? Or whatever we want it to be? :)

Glad to see Valentine's reviews coming in!!

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff: Valentines

I'm really trying hard not to order a bottle of Silver Incense until I read some reviews... Not sure how long I can hold out though :gaah: I am sure it is beautiful, but why don't you wait, construct a list of what you really want, order 6 and enjoy the free shipping! The Silver Incense is on my li...
