Scent 6.0
Les Royales Exclusives - White Amber by Creed

Les Royales Exclusives - White Amber„Less Than Notable”
It's a mildly pleasant fragrance, Amber and Sandalwood somewhat prominent, a suggestion of Jasmine, but it's really nothing to write home about. It vaguely reminds me of the far more captivating Bogue's MEM, but this is something the woman who wears MEM would give...

Shalimar (Extrait) by Guerlain

Shalimar (Extrait)„No Greater Excellence”
If a greater perfume than this exists, it's got to be Roja (Haute Luxe) by Roja Dove--at least in my personal sniffing experience. But even Roja can't eclipse the sheer wonder of Shalimar in its most glorious form, the original extrait. It took me a long time...

ScentFan„Soap Homecoming 2”
11/12/17It is the 28th day and, unable to wait, I cut my batch of Copra-olive soap into bars yesterday. When our HVAC maintenance man, unasked, cleaned our gutters of hurricane detritus, I gave him a big bar for his wife. The remainder yielded fifteen 1.5" x 2" x 3" bars and a few odd ones—not overly beautiful to the eye, but oh the touch. My magic batch of old had nothing on this.Imagine copious sudsy bubbles, so rich they are almost mucilaginous, that clean the skin and leave it soft and supple....

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!

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