    Today I Regret Buying......

    A 5ml "Travalo" atomizer full of Black XS for $20 from Perfumania... I don't have any idea what I was thinking... so now I have to buy the real thing and refill the atomizer to make it feel worth my while.. or just find a friend with Black XS and steal his ;) What did you buy today (or...

    Fragrances bought from stores

    Just wanted to know when you guys shop directly in stores for fragrances, do you take the fragrances (obviously sealed) that you find on the shelfs or do you prefer having them taken by the SA in the drawers because of the light in the store ? Eventhough the frags are sealed and in their box...

    Habit Rouge L'extrait

    The search for a bottle of the L'extrait I suppose is next to impossible now. On my last email to Guerlain, they do not have any plans to reissue this concentration. Does anyone know where I can pick up decants of the stuff, or does anyone know if there is a bottle lying around somewhere to be...

    What is this bottle/set? Is it rare? or old? or worth anything? :) (Adrian vintige cameo set)

    So today I was in my local thrift store and they have this glass case for more rare and vintage items (Most the stuff in the store is $1-$10 average and they had an accordion for $400 once!) so I looked in it today (My girlfriend loves vintage jewelry and she loves the cameo things (I've only...

    Guerlain 'With Love' - Is it really that good and was it limited edition?

    Just bought a 50ml EDT unsniffed for $16.99 off the 'Bay. The bottle looks really tacky if you ask me, but I'm a sucker for the bouchon cœur flacon. Read some good reviews and was wondering whether there are any detractors. And I understand that it was discontinued after 2005?

    Nino Cerruti by Cerruti...

    I bought a bottle of Nino Cerruti by Cerruti to test. I like how it smells, it is some what addictive. I want an other bottle but i can't find it anymore and the shop, which i bought it from, said that their supplier does not have it in stock any more. So what i want to know is what smells the...

    Can you dirty-up a bottle of new Jicky?

    I have a nice new refill bottle of Jicky - bought it last winter - and while it's fine on the sweet and light notes, it is definitely lacking in the infamous "dirty" notes. I'm thinking it might be possible to adjust it by layering with a (synthetic) civet oil, purchased from one of my local...

    Borneo and Kublai Khan by Lutens - First and Second impressions

    Having discovered that Serge Lutens is extremely generous with samples, I've requested a few. I originally got Chergui, in sample atomizer, on a card. This time, I requested and received Borneo 1834 and Muscs Kublai Khan. They were in small samples, with those tiny plastic sticks that you more...

    Avon Oland, weird stuff

    Bought some of this discontinued stuff when I was buying up the NOS Avon stuff mainly because the old Wild Country is so much stronger than the current variety. Well this is weird stuff. Wore it today because my friend and I were gonna go out & do some thrift store hunting. We find it funny to...

    Can't send PERFUME from Seattle to Australia???!

    Hi everyone, I have the needs to pick your brain about the rules and regulations for sending a bottle of perfume. I asked my relative in Seattle to purchase me a bottle of perfume, and got an email from them today telling me they couldn't send it from Seattle because of the law??? This doesn't...

    Burberry The Beat for men being phased out - !

    I was looking for a replacement bottle for the one I bought a year 1/2 ago and to my avail.... Macy's no longer carries it in stock - the SA said "oh that scent was so strong...." and replied "you what I like is Aqua di Gio let me show you a nice gift set I have here".. My reply was "no...

    Experiences with Scentsplits?

    Hello all - I am at the point in my sniffing experience where I've used up my samples of some fragrances I think I would like to own, but I'm not ready yet to invest in a big 'ole bottle. An 8-10 ml decant of some of the things I'd like to try further seems the best bet. And while I've been...

    BOD $$$ spray, wow is this strong!

    Saw this stuff sitting on the bottom shelf on clearance at Target. My stepson who is 10 is just starting to get into cologne, so we gave him a spritz. Seemed pretty strong for $4 so we bought the bottle. Well dang does this stuff last and last. I mean it just seems to linger forever. It is a...

    Place to buy Kouros (not online though)

    Hello, I am looking for a place to buy Kouros where I can physically see the box before I buy it. After reading this thread - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/249978-Vintage-Kouros - I took a look at the back of my box, and at the end of the ingredient list I found the code 2YF02-3, meaning I...

    Ebay reliable for samples?

    Wanted to test out a few samples before I committed and bought large bottles. What is your experience with Ebay vendors (high volume, impeccable feedback)? Any you would suggest? Thanks, GST

    Well, just perfect.

    I just came back from the doctor's and, as it turns out, I do not have strep throat as I had expected. I actually have a sinus infection, which is draining into my ears, down my throat (causing soreness), causing a fever, and draining into my lungs, causing bacterial bronchitis. It doesn't help...

    Light Weight Bottle of Rive Gauche.

    I just bought a 4.2 bottle of Rive Gauche. Its incredibly lightweight for being 4.2 However it is aluminum and with no glass or heavier metals. In spite of this, it is suspiciously light and feels like there is less liquid than there should be for 4.2 oz. It was sealed in box as far as I know...

    Creed Millesime Imperial

    Hey folks, Does anyone know how long the shelf life for MI is? I bought one a while back and it seemed bitter with the smell of alcohol . I recently bought one from the creed boutique and this one smells absolutely amazing. I notice the juice is darker in this one as well. I hear this...

    Rochas Tocade - Help!

    Hi all. I'm a little puzzled by my bottle of Tocade. I ordered it online back when I was a newbie 'fumie, and didn't think to check the retailer's reviews until after I'd purchased. Reading all of the bad reports, I didn't expect to receive anything, ever, but three months down the line this...

    Is Bois d'Orage the answer to Angeliques Sous la Pluies' shortcomings?

    I have sampled Angeliques Sous la Pluies and actually had some kind of epiphany when I smelled it the first time but I quickly realized how weak sillage and longevity are. Many reviews confirm that this is an issue that prevented many from buying it. Well I recently bought a bottle from a fellow...
