By luck and with Fabienne's amazing TAT, I got my fumes the 3 days I am in US! Starting to post some reviews, although fumes have not yet had time to settle.

Mods, I don't see an entry for Virginie Gautrau. Could you add one, please? I want to sing its praises. :)

Thank you for pointing this out! How did I miss this one, and Virginia Oldoini also?? Were they added a little later? I know when I was first posting the descriptions there were only 7 or so....
Oh well, it's all good now!

:gaah: There were two more!
Now all good?

I think so! Going by the listings there are 27 in the collection, and we now have 27 topics besides this one, so I think we're covered! Thank you. :hrt::

So, since there is/was a new Cambienne I had to get it and I don't let Possets travel alone. I'm on a kind of tight budget these days but I will buy pretty much every Cambienne that comes out, one way or another. I hear giving plasma is profitable.... Anyway, I've only bought one of the Femmes Fatales just now, though I'm interested in about another half dozen... this collection just sounds gorgeous!

Tangents? sorry! I went with Jeanne DuVal cuz I've been in the mood for amber. Thank you Petticoats and hill78 for your reviews! Obviously, I appreciate ALL the reviews. A few more for Jeanne would have been nice but I'm pretty sure I'll be very happy with it, notes and a few reviews generally seal the deal for me. I will review when it's in my hot little hands. Speaking of reviews, could we please keep the review threads to actual reviews and put comments thanking people for reviews and how reviews may or may not be influencing our purchases and that kind of chatter in this thread? Thanks! :hug: :hrt::

So... if I can make another order, what would y'all recommend? Gimme your :2cents: please! The ones that really got my attention would be Evita, George, Mata Hari, Judith, Salome... and others. Thanks in advance for any reviews/suggestions/advice/random thoughts :hrt::

Sincerely,
Boudicca the overchoiced

I with you on the budget thing. Damn I wished I'd thought of the plasma thing....now it's too late. I was trying to find the moolah to buy the latest Cambienne, now it's gone. I can't wait to see your review of it. And I'll gladly help you out with reviews of Judith, Evita, George, Mata Hari and Salome. You named all of the samples I got. I also got Caroline Lamb too.

Boudicca, for me, I would do Salome or Judith. Both?? Mata Hari is lovely, but for me, a bit in the light side for musk. Judith and Salome are both sexy gorgeous. Salome has that most unusual green coffee note, that I am not sure I like, but then I love the total effect. Did you try Wallis Warfield Simpson? These are my top three. I love Aspasia, too (hello, osmanthus), but it is super subtle.

I was wondering about osmanthus, I don't think I've ever smelled it. Can you describe how the note is?
