Orchid Soleil (Eau de Parfum) by Tom Ford

Orchid Soleil (Eau de Parfum)„Pseudo-Animalic Powerhouse”
This to me conveys a very strong impression of being a animalic bad-girl; but according to the note-list there is nothing animalic in it. I think the cypress might have a lot to do with that, as it is certainly a note that at least I perceive very accutely....

Noir Anthracite by Tom Ford

Noir Anthracite„Haunting Photo-Realistic Coal”
The title is really just a retrodiction of that of my previous review; and whereas in that case it was meant in full earnest, in this it is a tad (and some) hyperbolick! However, when I first picked up the sample-bottle of this & squirted from it, my thoughts...

QuercusAlbus„Capriciosity of 'Fume”
It's my understanding that the purpose of these blog-pages is to serve as a kind of °safe space° in which one may unfold one's ideas in a way that would be too unpeacable in the review pages; however, I thought I had better stress that this article explores the connections between the art of perfume-wearing, mysticism, dæmonology, quantum mechanics, & sin according to Christian eschatology (yes, for real!). I really do not wish that anyone's mind or sensibilities be unseated for a season by such...

Hi, regarding your last question, there is a thread for any kind of suggestions, if you wouldn't mind copypasting it there: https://www.parfumo.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16
The second question (might be also nice for the forum) - I don't know that many perfumes with osmanthus, don't get on well with the rendered note in general and prefer the Orange Pekoe!
I actually came here to finally reply to your comment on Flash. 'Mental block' and the opening key is a good picture, for perfumes as well as for anything else :) I suppose some can be unblocked if they are indeed mentally controllable, while some might trigger a purely physical reaction. Since I often connect 'personalities' with perfumes, I must tell you it wouldn't be easy for me to willingly unblock certain types that feel like it's somewhat 'against' my nature.

PS. About the first question of yours, I also liked the user's reviews and even though she seems to have moved to her own blog (It was before my time, so I can only guess), her reviews here remain as valuable pieces. IIrc, she hasn't updated the blog for quite some time either.

Could someone possibly tell me, if one get-up the list of this-or-that person's reviews, is there a way of listing them according to ^modification^ date rather than ^creation^ date? I don't know what software package(s) this website uses; but it ought to be easy to set that feature - it is pretty-much a default of electronic-data-handling systems (even back unto MS DOS), that files can be listed in either order at will.

Does appear one can't, unfirtunately. Might the administrator consider introducing or enabling this feature? I think it is quite common practice to modify a review, even after a considerable lapse of time. I certainly do.

My attention has recently been pulled in the direction of osmanthus as a perfumery note; and I think it might be set to be my chief theme for a while. Would anyone say that its aroma is somewhat like that of a freshly-opened packet of Ceylon Orange Pekoe?

Whatever happened to the character ~Sherapop~? 1240 reviews!! Seems she was very popular, & I also am one who likes her manner of disquisition.

I cannot figure-out how to upload an avatar image with this site's facilities. Will someone please apprise me of the way-of-doing it?
