Re: Iowa (USA collection)

Oh my goodness, I can't believe how good this fragrance is! I was so hesitant to try this (mostly because anything that's brown-sugary are like instant death-notes on me, especially after trying Reason (which just turned into wax and super-oily toffee on me)and Smellbutrin (wax, and nose-burning sug...

Re: Vermont-Sweet New England (USA collection)

I got my sample for a year now, and I absolutely need to make a review because this is by no means a simple foodie fragrance. When I first got the perfume, I mostly smell bright lime syrup (like from a soda or something), runny maple syrup, and a very evocative pie crust with the same texture you'd ...

Re: Alaska-Shimmering Crystals and Midnight (USA collection)

I got into a mood for something a little 'green' lately, and it's definitely how Alaska feels. As soon as it hits my skin, the notes smells like cool grassy dew and definitely something mentholly (which I imagine is definitely the eucalyptus). But this is DEFINITELY not your average bottle of cough ...

Re: Put the __________ in the ____________. (Summer 2009)

I believe I owe this perfume an apology. I blind-bought this perfume during last year's Retour because I heard a few very good things about it (that and I love Fabienne's coconut notes!) but sadly when I got first got it, I was surprised by how weird it smelled to my nose and on my skin (like, I got...

Re: Augusta, Sister of Lord Byron (100% Natural)

Interesting review! Thanks for providing such a concise description of Augusta, it really seems to fit her 'personality' (like, she's even-tempered and seems to be like a girl-next-door for her time period--but there's definitely something about her). I seriously want to wear Fabienne's clove and sp...

Re: News In 2016

BTW, I would love to hear other reviewer's thoughts on California or their own favorite/home states, but I don't want to be so bold as to open up a thread somewhere before you (Fabienne) does, nor to trample on your toes if you'd like to keep this collection a personal undertaking. Yeah, I was very...

Re: The "What are you wearing today and general impressions of it" thread :)

I'm wearing Montana Sky. It smells like cherry incense, the good quality kind, not the sort that literally goes up in smoke. I like it. Ooh, that puts Montana on my wish list now! I'm wearing Testosterone (my "Depeche Mode" scent) and it's such a brain-bender. Minty black leather and petrol. Yes, i...

Re: News In 2016

Awwww, thank you so much. I love what I do and glad that you are along for the fun ride. By the way, you don't know it but the forum was updated recently, you have to do that for security and other good things. More later. That's no problem! Also, what would I have to do for security again (sorry, ...

Re: News In 2016

WOW! I can't believe that printer had gone bananas (it sounds like it'd be funny to see, but not so funny in real life considering how printers and printing ink are very crazy-expensive). But seriously, thank you SO MUCH for being able to balance your time with all the constant shipping, perfume mak...

Re: Arcturus

WOW, this is honestly one of the darkest and most complex vanilla scents I've ever tried in my life. If I could describe Arcturus, I'd literally have to say "It's like Darth Vader in vanilla form". Let's see...the first note literally smells like vanilla bean paste of me. The very rich, almost boozy...
