recent developments:
It took a month for my vtg Chamade to arrive and I really hope it's still intact! I also cross-posted all my Parfumo reviews to a new tumblr, where I also have some other perfume things as well: http://galaxolide-goblin.tumblr.com/ How is everybody doing this spring? More

Huh.
I got a sample of Alien Eau Extraordinaire and a full review is coming up when I can find the time for it, but for now, the key features: It's very similar to the original. The jasmine is still there. However the sour woods seem to have been replaced by decidedly fresher and friendlier notes (I get an impression of some laundry musks??).

Some houses just won't open their doors for me.
Among them have (so far) been most notably Hermès and Serge Lutens. I just don't know which ones to keep sampling to not lose interest altogether. Out of Hermès' perfumes, I have tried Eau des Merveilles, L'Ambre des Merveilles and Un Jardin sur le Nil, and while they are all good perfumes in their own right (and I can appreciate them as such) they...

on testing and settling
I think I am still going through the honeymoon period of frantic testing, reviewing, blind buys and whatnot, but sometimes it's just best to chill with time-tested favourites. Today, while I wait for my samples and the recent Beyoncé release "Rise" to arrive, it is Alien edp. What is yours? More

just wondering
Is there some kind of a rule that every perfume house that's managed to stay afloat for a few years has to have a frag named after their street address? "Look, we made it, and we're confident enuf that we are not about to go under so here's our address" More

Fragrances bought and/or soon to be tested:
Full bottle: Bvlgari Black. Best vanilla-intense perfume that I have smelled, and sexy (know that I use this qualifier very sparingly) as hell. Minis: YSL Opium, Laura Biagiotti, Fendi, Cacharel Noa, Elizabeth Taylor Passion - a mini lot that was so cheap I couldn't pass up on it. Samples: Chanel Sycomore and Bois des Iles, Caron Tabac...
