Scent 10.0
Maai by Bogue

Maai„Mossy Animals”
If you like animalics, if you like oakmoss, if you like the bevy of florals usually found in orientals, then Maai is for you. I expected it to leap from the bottle and it did a bit at first. Soon it settled into its glory like a potentate assuming a throne--no intimidation,...

Arbolé Arbolé by Hiram Green

Arbolé Arbolé„Vanilla Woods”
This simple perfume is very well done, vanilla accenting the subtle sides of each of the woods. It feels on the feminine side, perhaps because of the vanilla and tonka. Like the other Hiram Green perfumes, nothing here assaults the nose. The name means Tree, Tree after...

ScentFan„The New Cool Crowd - INTUITIVELY OBVIOUS TO THE CASUAL NOSE, 2”
The other day I made my first trip to a Sephora perfume room and, sniffing randomly, realized my nose was rapidly closing. Most were new or current offerings from well known houses. I left, not buying anything or even requesting samples (didn't know I was capable of that).There's something new afoot in perfumery, folks. Perhaps you already know, but my mind just identified what my nose has been reporting. I'm talking the likes of:Cuir Cuba Intense by Patricia de Nicolaï -- starring Licorice, Geranium...

Hi!Thanks so much for your kind messages,and yes,I have not been to the English site for a long time and wasn't aware of it!Won't happen again.Gosh,I have just read your comment on New Sibet,you left me speechless!
A spa in Arizona sounds fabulous,perfume shopping can wait,when you can douse yourself in that Roja (which I'd better not even try,it sounds so wonderful) and New Sibet!
Sending you best wishes ,and let me know if and when you do your trip to Paris,I'd love to hear your impressions!There is this tiny niche parfumerie that is the only one that sells the Mona di Orios,the guy there is so eccentric ,it is worth a visit!Can't remember the name of the place now,but could find out.
Many greetings!

Finding partners in grief is one of the most heartwarming things to experience in one's lifetime. Thank you so very much!

There are more than a few monumental vintage perfumes out there. However only a handful of them deserve to be called either bewitching or mesmerising. Or both...Thanks a milion!

This makes two of us thus far. I hope you don't like it for the same reasons. Many thanks!

Hi!Had to laugh about your story with your Latin teacher-and you were so right,but public opinion seems to support Agamemnon in this,I was influenced by the opera Elektra and saw Klytemnaestra as some kind of monster of a woman!
I will have to try Kiss My Name as soon as possible,right now I am saving up for my next Slumberhouse bottle,am going this month to the only place that sells them in all of Europe,to Kraków,but they also have DS and Durga,which sounds so wonderful,especially their Foxglove!I am beginning to wonder if the most interesting niche perfumes are being made in the Untied States,whereas there seem to be more and more pretend niche ones in Europe.

Hi!We have so much in common(slumberhouse-only discovered a few months ago,practically don't want to wear anything else!-and can't handle hyacinth,narcissus or lily of the valley either) that I am tempted to rush out and go to the Monegal shop here in Barcelona to try Kiss My Name!!!

Hi, i'm sorry! I didn't saw your comment on my L'Origan review....

It could be a case of sororal twins who were separated at birth and were adopted by two families living a thousand miles apart; one in Paris and one in Seville. Although they grew up having nothing in common, speaking different languages and living in different climates (literally and figuratively, a glance at them and their inner mien is enough to evoke a feeling that they're somehow connected. For me, the difference that sets them an inch or a world apart, is the same difference existing between lust and passion. Thanks a million!

It seems that fragrances have a tendency for boosting my IQ a couple of digits. Especially when they're century (or so) old...Tens (Κnize or not) of thanks!
