Arpège (1993) (Eau de Parfum) by Lanvin

Arpège (1993) (Eau de Parfum)„Doesn't work for me.”
I had (up until recently when the sprayer completely broke) a 100 ml black-egg shaped bottle of Arpege. Much as I wanted to love this perfume it is one that I can hardly smell. I tried wearing it on and off over a couple of years but I could smell virtually nothing...

Radiant by Pecksniff's

Radiant„Shiney and Bright”
My sister bought me this one from a 'last orders' type of shop. I have had it for a few years and just never got into it, didn't know what to make of it especially when trying it after a few days of wearing a heavy hitter such as Aromatics Elixir or Mon Parfum Cherie...

First impression, medicinal frankincense, fragrant sandalwood, touch vanillic benzoin, doesn't get going on me except for the sandalwood.+2
First impressions 3 day old vase water, aldehydic lemon, a touch of peach. Thin, watery. Neat indole, no jasmine. Not my cup of tea.+2

Wafting to my nose all day carnation, my skin close up smells like my grandad's well used dirty old pipe. Not sure if love or yikes!+1
Might well this be sold exclusively in Harrods; at £88 per 25ml (£352 per 100ml) I don't think I should blind buy (however much I want to).
Orange benzoin frankincense and musk. Very faint on me, in fact almost non-existant (about the strength of having washed with a nice soap).+2

On me, artificial, opens sour, develops strangely sweet, bad tooth smell. No oranges or gardenia for me. Smells a bit off.+2

Not good on me, super artificial strident rose cologne peters out to sharp, bitter musks. Finally leaves my skin with a meaty smell. Yikes!+2

DorothyGrace„Two successful blind buys”
So sad. My Mac had a complete hard drive failure. I was backed up with Time Machine and found some software to get back my important documents but where are my photographs? I expect they are there but I can't find software to extract them onto my laptop. I could just cry. But crying is no use so I had better do something more productive, like buy some perfume.Did that. Still feel like crying. I guess perfume doesn't fix everything.Ah!Rasasi!What am I going to do?Your bottles are enticingLiquid...

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!
