Bed of Roses - Maison Sybarite

Bed of Roses Stunning Stuffy Surprise
This came as a free sample with an order, so I wasn’t expecting what happened when I sprayed it on my wrist. A milky stream ran down my arm, followed by a truly unique and delightful waft of earthy rose beauty up my nose. Not believing...

Jazmín Yucatan - D.S. & Durga

Jazmín Yucatan Snake in the Jasmine fields
I like almost everything by D.S. & Durga (except Vio-Volta, their hopefully sole sojourn into serious aromachemicals), so I was practically guaranteed to like their Jazmin Yucatán, Jasmine being my hands down favorite floral. I didn’t...

ScentFanPerfumista to Perfumer - Rescued Trash
Perfume deliveries at my house having morphed for the most part into deliveries of essential oils, absolutes and such---here's a pic of what's becoming my perfume organ, (or what's left of my initial purchases). Into the trash went my unwary acquisitions of what turned out to be fragrance oils, usually noxious imitations of the real...

ScentFanSoap Homecoming 7 -- Hubby's Birthday Soap
One day I asked my husband if he was enjoying the soap I'd made. (I'd noticed a bar stayed untouched on his bathroom counter.) Quickly he confirmed it felt great on his skin then mumbled something about the smell. Apparently, though he liked it on me, "Scentfan by Appointment" (inspired by Shalimar/Roja's Haute Luxe), wasn't manly...

I do not know New Sibet. What do you mean by "Without a metallic note, there are no chains"?

Thank you very much for your comment on my Ore review. Slumberhouse is great, isn't it? Kiste and the other miracles...

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.
Many greetings!

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!
