Vol de Nuit (Eau de Toilette) by Guerlain

Vol de Nuit (Eau de Toilette)„Rather too soft/weak.”
I have been wearing Vol de Nuit (2017 edt Bee bottle) for around about a week now and I like it despite it being a complete hodge -podge to my nose, and despite the odd way it wears on me. On first application it has an interesting flurry that reminds me of the bottle...

Scent 4.5
Tobacco Absolute by Molton Brown

Tobacco Absolute„Sweet”
22/May/2019 Trying to find something to do with this I added a scant teaspoonful to the non-fragranced laundry liquid in a wash. It stays on clothes through the wash and I am sitting now in a bubble of scent front the t-shirt washed then dried on the line. I can't see me being...

EDT lovely but so weak and short lived it's a shame. One spray Tabu still going strong, 3 of VdeN topped up twice is fainter. EDP needed.

Old fashioned perfumy bath cubes. Interesting flurry on application ends up like Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden. Lasts full 24 hours on me.+2

I recall who/where I first smelt Poison - so memorable. Rich, fruity plum, a discord of anise. It's had its heart reformulated out of it.+1
Can't find this listed on the Caron perfume website. Hope it hasn't been discontinued. Oh bother. I'll keep an eye on the discount sites.+1

Huge aldehydes. Reminds Caleche Soie de Parfum, Arpege, Beautiful. Benzoin & vanilla like Tabu without spice. Successful blind buy. Smile.+1

Very strong benzoin and vanilla all the way almost completely obliterating the animal fur and woods. Wears pretty linear on me.+2

Fresh & cool. Cedar? Amber. Very like an aftershave. Similar in style to Anarchiste (Caron). Not mint but something cool like mint.+2

On me the mint just never quits. 5 hours and a dirty stale well sucked mint keeps wafting to my nose. Maybe wintergreen as well.+1

On me sour dirty lemon amps up and covers all. Incongruent sniff of stale cinnamon. Cake or joss stick rose. Touch of burnt pipe/ashtray.+2

DorothyGrace„Neat Indole, and a very, very sad topic”
What does neat indole smell like to you?Fiddly faddeling around with my table-top chest of drawers filled with little bottles of essential oils and other fragrance related paraphernalia I came across a sealed tin; curious.Opened up said tin and inside were two little bottles of 10% indole and one little...

What's eating me about all these reformulations is the fact that no matter how forwarned you might be, your forearm is going to be occasionally bitten. Thanks a million and welcome to Parfumo!
