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

Bike is my faaaaavorite. A wallop of lime, and an undercurrent of gently spiced/guy's t-shirt scent. I'm wearing 3333 Reservoir Road, and it's heavenly. It's a little bittersweet, because I used to feel this way about Romping Skyclad, before it became Tiger Balm on me. Before that I was in love with...

Re: Rigel

Rigel is the penultimate hippie scent. Though she doesn't list it in the notes, it reminds me more of patchouli than most of Fabienne's scents that include it. There is an indolic "uptick" which could be the mint that Petticoats is detecting. (Patchouli, which is in the mint family, has th...

Re: 2017 - The Year of the Retour!

The Queen's Strawberries is a definite full bottle. I had a "perfume battle" last night with that and Leda & The Swan, which is my current favorite strawberry. I told myself a person does not need two strawberry scents. I figured Leda would win, as it's got that slightly resinous quali...

Re: Aspasia, Mistress of Pericles

I did not have a reference point for osmanthus when I ordered this. When I first tried it, it seemed perfumy. The same day I tried it, I was on an interview panel and the woman sitting next to me most definitely wore a perfume with osmanthus in it, too. Since she is more of a "lady", and I...

Re: Betelgeuse

This opens with a buttery sweetness, and an indolic quality. In fact, I can't picture the red fruit at all. This feels golden yellow. As it dries down, I get hints of juicy apple. It reminds me a little of Gingerbread Whorehouse, with less caramel, but still sweet. This makes me think about winter h...

Re: 2017 - The Year of the Retour!

I am not sure I can write any more reviews. I am currently sitting here wearing Alisoun, Romanee-Conti, Betelgeuse and The Trobiaritz. I have lost track of which one is where. Overall, I smell amazing. As an aside, I often wondered how the heck Cambiennes could work. I used to think it would be like...

Re: 3336 Reservoir Road N.W.

This is gorgeous . Black tea and tobacco, and a sense of clean linen. No Irish Spring or soapiness for me, it stays on the spicy/resinous side, but is also fresh. It's very balanced. I am not sure I can pull this off--Fabienne's other tea scents never quite worked for me--but it's so pretty, I am de...

Re: Ara the Altar

I've talked about Frangipani before, because the Spiritual Sky version was such a staple of mine in high school that it left a real impression on me. The oil itself is a fuschia-pink color: http://www.incensewarehouse.com/assets/images/fragipani-spiritualskyoil.jpg I'm not entirely convinced that it...

Re: Line

This perfume is comprised of nice things. Grapefruit is nice. I love sage, and sometimes burn a little to ward off evil smells. And of course everyone loves the smell of a cedar box, right? Except when I put this on my skin, it smelled like wet towels left forgotten and moldering out in the garage. ...
