Sultanate of Oman by Roja Parfums
„Now Comes the Sultan”
I had no intention of buying this fragrance during my long visit to Neiman's perfume counters. I was simply sniffing through the Roja Doves, the sales clerk and I machine-like as she sprayed each on paper, handed it to me and looked expectantly up as I said things...

Tuberose by Roja Parfums
From constant sniffing I've learned I'm in love with white florals, especially scents that feature Jasmine and Tuberose with Orange Blossom or Neroli and Musk or Civet. This combo appears in many a startling beauty including Boucheron, Jardins de Bagatelle, Clive...
Per hubby, "You could just throw out all the rest and keep this!"+3
Easily the most beguiling scent I've ever smelled+1

„Three Lovelies - INTUITIVELY OBVIOUS TO THE CASUAL NOSE, 3”
This is a comparison of three perfumes I recently tried that smelled similar to me. First I'll list them and their notes which are often not complete because perfumers don't like to show all their cards.RAINFLOWER by Neil MorrisFreesia, Night-blooming jasmine, Lilac, Gardenia, Pink hyacinth, Tulip, MuskJAPANESE SPRING woman by NadiaZAfrican myrrh, Gardenia, Hyacinth, HyraceumKAIGardenia, Tropical FlowersAh!

Happy to hear you found the blog interesting :) If you test some of their samples, I'm interested in a Sniff Fest post for sure! We've covered the first quarter or so by now, none of the US scents yet, though. Some of them, I translated (Sharini, Saint d'Ici) and will keep doing that on the occasion to get them more known.

Hi!Thanks so much for your kind messages,and yes,I have not been to the English site for a long time and wasn't aware of it!Won't happen again.Gosh,I have just read your comment on New Sibet,you left me speechless!
A spa in Arizona sounds fabulous,perfume shopping can wait,when you can douse yourself in that Roja (which I'd better not even try,it sounds so wonderful) and New Sibet!
Sending you best wishes ,and let me know if and when you do your trip to Paris,I'd love to hear your impressions!There is this tiny niche parfumerie that is the only one that sells the Mona di Orios,the guy there is so eccentric ,it is worth a visit!Can't remember the name of the place now,but could find out.

Finding partners in grief is one of the most heartwarming things to experience in one's lifetime. Thank you so very much!

There are more than a few monumental vintage perfumes out there. However only a handful of them deserve to be called either bewitching or mesmerising. Or both...Thanks a milion!

This makes two of us thus far. I hope you don't like it for the same reasons. Many thanks!

Hi!Had to laugh about your story with your Latin teacher-and you were so right,but public opinion seems to support Agamemnon in this,I was influenced by the opera Elektra and saw Klytemnaestra as some kind of monster of a woman!
I will have to try Kiss My Name as soon as possible,right now I am saving up for my next Slumberhouse bottle,am going this month to the only place that sells them in all of Europe,to Kraków,but they also have DS and Durga,which sounds so wonderful,especially their Foxglove!I am beginning to wonder if the most interesting niche perfumes are being made in the Untied States,whereas there seem to be more and more pretend niche ones in Europe.

Hi!We have so much in common(slumberhouse-only discovered a few months ago,practically don't want to wear anything else!-and can't handle hyacinth,narcissus or lily of the valley either) that I am tempted to rush out and go to the Monegal shop here in Barcelona to try Kiss My Name!!!
