Scent 10.0
Slowdive by Hiram Green

Slowdive„Stunning Crime”
How I managed to miss a new creation by Hiram Green for even a second, I don’t know. First thing I did when I read the initial review was go to th HG site and put myself on their mailing list to make sure this never happens again. Next I bought Slowdive blind. As expected,...

Scent 9.0
Under the Orange Tree by Marina Barcenilla / The Perfume Garden

Under the Orange Tree„Fragrant Orange”
This orange is turned sultry by Labdanum, Frankincense, Vanilla and Amber. On paper it's brighter than on skin, a good thing. It's a sophisticated take on the genre, easy to wear anywhere and exude class. Marcina Barcenilla is an utterly talented designer and a welcome...

ScentFan„A Genius, A Prince and A Soirée in Versailles”
This is the kind of story that makes me wonder if invisible genies are orchestrating our lives. PREFACEIt began as I prepared for my still only partially-written Guerlain Sniff Fest in our Forum. Slowly I'd been collecting Guerlain samples until the fated day, March 27, 2016. I know because it's the day before I posted my review of Jardins de Bagatelle. With this and other beauties recently in hand, I—a still somewhat green perfumista—had fallen madly, hopelessly in love with Jean-Paul...

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!
