No. 89 (Eau de Toilette) - Floris

No. 89 (Eau de Toilette) Not my cup of tea
Not my cup of tea at all for a perfume or aftershave. For a minute or so the opening smells very slightly of lavender, bergamot, and maybe hiding way way back a touch of nutmeg. In pretty short time everything is taken over by a a surprisingly...

Quelques Fleurs L'Original (Eau de Parfum Extreme) - Houbigant

Quelques Fleurs L'Original (Eau de Parfum Extreme) Extreme eau de parfum?
I bought samples of this Extreme Eau de Parfum and the Eau de Parfum. I don't think they are supposed to be different one to the other just a slightly different concentration, however they do smell different and behave differently on my skin...

On me smells like a slightly more artificial Parfum Sacre (Caron, edp, current bun top). Rather linear, not complex, sweet and pleasant.

Reminds of EA Green Tea but much weaker. A rather bland rendition of jasmine tea and orange blossom. To me way too pricey for what it is .

This seams to be one of those perfumes that doesn't wash off. Four washes with soap and still going strong.

Similar to Fracas tuberose, plus lemon geranium. Rather harsh. I put nut oil/patchouli/rose over top to soften - better balance for me.

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

Overpowering Eucalyptus and Camphor. Medicinal and raw.

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

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

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.

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!
