White Rose (Eau de Toilette) by Floris

White Rose (Eau de Toilette)„Underplayed rosey white musk”
Hard to explain just how nondescript this is on me. A vaguely rosey white musk, soft and clean. My nan (born late 1890s) used to have a dab of lavender water on a hanky in her handbag if she was going out and needed to be posh. The strength and inoffensiveness...

Coriandre (Eau de Parfum) by Jean Couturier

Coriandre (Eau de Parfum)„Poor purchase decision”
The note pyramid make this edp sound like just my cup of tea. Oh no, wrong. The base notes look just right, dry, woody, maybe a bit bitter. Lots of lovely flowers in the middle. Nice aldehydic citrusy top. I get none of that. To me it is a thin, sour,...

Chestnut dries down to sweet, dirty, balsamic, tonka type of affair. Great short opening, poor middle and no nothing dry down on me.

Very dirty smell on me, like Marmite, balsam, and a bitter myrhh. A bit dirty animalic. Meaty sweet.
Pretty dense.

Tuberose surprisingly similar to the Fracas tuberose. On me dryer with loads of slightly lemony geranium. Nice but not my style.

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

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

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!
