Scent 2.5
For Her Fleur Musc by Narciso Rodriguez

For Her Fleur Musc„Bribery & Betrayal”
If a perfumer you loved and trusted because he produced one of the best perfumes ever, bribed you to cover his pending betrayal, what would you do? Perhaps I'm being melodramatic. Can't help it. I'm an author and melodrama is one of my instincts. Seriously,...

Scent 8.5
Izia by Sisley

Izia„Old Made New”
What's new about this well-done floral from Sisley isn't the bright aldehydic, citrusy top or the amber, musk cedar base. It's the heart and its unusual rose accord from the Ornano rose cultivated in Isabelle d'Ornano's garden. Since her husband died, she heads the titled...

ScentFan„11 Silent Days of Scent”
I suppose that if a person gets it into her head to go on a 10-day (really 11-day) Meditation Retreat, but can't go, and decides to turn off the cell and do it at home--if same person picks out 11 days of clothes, she certainly needs 11 days of scent. Yes?But which are most apropos for om? Being an addict (i.e., a perfumista), I've got a heck of a lot to choose from -- soliflores and solicitruses, soliboises, orientals, chypres, animalics, incense, etc. Though the latter category seems...

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!

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!!!

Hi, i'm sorry! I didn't saw your comment on my L'Origan review....

It could be a case of sororal twins who were separated at birth and were adopted by two families living a thousand miles apart; one in Paris and one in Seville. Although they grew up having nothing in common, speaking different languages and living in different climates (literally and figuratively, a glance at them and their inner mien is enough to evoke a feeling that they're somehow connected. For me, the difference that sets them an inch or a world apart, is the same difference existing between lust and passion. Thanks a million!

It seems that fragrances have a tendency for boosting my IQ a couple of digits. Especially when they're century (or so) old...Tens (Κnize or not) of thanks!
