In Praise of Parfumo

So, what does a perfumista do with too much time at her hands ... peruse the fields of the Parfumo club. Go to the Section of highly rated perfumes and pounce upon "Vaniglia Sopraffina e Rhum" - 8.9/10 ... hm, hm ... something to consider.

Go to the particular perfume page and on to the Inner Island website - http://www.myinnerisland.com/

Pick the English version and start investigating. Lovely. Yummy. Must have.

Find the section for stores - oh, most of them are in Italy. But, then there is one in Germany.

Over to the German side - www.parfumo.de and to their Parfumerie-Fuehrer (an assortment of worthwhile stores) and voila, there is La Schiller (the only German store on the Inner Island website) and a thorough member description of it. http://www.parfumo.de/Parfumerie/La_Schiller

And after that, I took the plunge and ordered "Vaniglia Sopraffina e Rhum". The Schiller website was professional and the order went smoothly.

Without the Parfumo reviews (on the German side) of both the perfume and the store, I would not have had the confidence to order an item without sniffing.

I doubt that so many noses can be wrong if they appointed this vanilla scent with such a high rating. After all, our members have fine noses.

Apicius mentioned that a refill does not go with the image of this maker of luxury items. Luxury is single, is special, is rare ... the item is coveted. This link shows a video of the makers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OuXyqvW-fs ... More

Steal of a deal
M. Micallef scents are rated rather nicely by the Parfumo community and I myself have "Art Collection - Rouge No. 2" in full bottle and a decant of "Watch - Time for Love". Based on that I jumped on a deal of which I will supply the link. It is a blind buy but I believe that the clean notes of Pomelos (a grapefruit type) and the iris may be to my "fresh from the shower" taste. The... More
