Lasting power, your thoughts

...Scarletting:I made the mistake of trying out my bottle of Habanita EDP today. Between the warm weather and being a little trigger happy with a new fragrance I almost made myself sick with it. It's tricky... most perfumes fade very quickly on me. The ones that don't last so long they're almost nauseating.I owned a vintage Habanita until about 2006 when I used the remainder as a room spray before open homes at our houses. I,too, was overwhelmed by it.

Lasting power, your thoughts

...Tessa:Lately a great number of high end perfumes suffer from this "disappearance act". Reformulation? No one knows.Tauer, as mentionned, has a good longevity. Heeley perfumes, all of them, are great in this respect and I had a surprise with Dali by Dali and Origan by Coty, the vintage eau de toilette. You mention Dali which is wonderful I am led to believe. I haven't had the pleasure. I am lusting after an Explorer pack by Tauer (my birthday I hope)

...I took Cristalle and No 19 away with me, figuring that No 19 would take over from Cristalle in the evening. It did work out that way but I do wish that Cristalle lasted longer.

Lasting power, your thoughts

...Dolby, I was completely floored at the ALM scent survival. But there it was, beating out the Goutal. Tomorrow I go to a graduation, a flight and car journey so I will pit a couple of others up against one another. Triffid is right, one needs to put them through their paces to gain a favoured position. A sleep and then here goes.

...Kelly Caleche today, the EDP, lasting about six hours now and just a skin scent but I'm lapping it up. Thunder clouds have built, it's 98% humidity and I'm glad I didn't wear Mitsouko, which I planned to do after reading Miss Frolova's blog this morning

Lasting power, your thoughts

...Yesterday was a hot day here in the Southern Hemisphere. I wore "Un Jardin apr├Ęs la Mousson" for a walk through the park with Luca the poodle. Later, having forgotten that I had used it, I sprayed myself with Annick Goutal's "Passion (Eau de Parfum)" for a trip to the shops. In the evening I sat down to watch Downton Abbey and it was Apres La Mousson that came to me, quite strongly in fact. Passion was all spent.

Teenage boys - fragrance recommendations

...I rounded up a few minis (and one FB blind buy) from my local online discounter. These arrived in three days and have been quite a success. At Omni's recommendation, I bought Jesus del Pozo's "Quasar" as it was very cheap for a 100ml bottle and, based on reviews, seemed like a safe option for a...

Teenage boys - fragrance recommendations

...Triffid, you are a lovely mum. My middle son smells wonderful in Porsche Essence and guys who are getting into fragrance are sometimes reassured by the car thing. I know it's ubiquitous but Terre D'Hermes is just so gorgeous. Quasar by Jesus del Pozo is a lovely starter fragrance also.

do cheaper scents require more applications?

...Try Declaration by Cartier or Azzaro Pour Homme. I hope you find something more suitable than the weak and musky Bulgari, a fragrance that did not find favour in this household, by him, or her.

Boozy fruits

...Scarletting:Jesus Del Pozo's "In Black" is a dark, heavy cherry booze with licorice. Perfect for autumn evenings.Indeed it is. My daughter stole it from me. It's a great suggestion.

Do you dare to don "Exceptional"?

The Prefix is Un
...Un...exceptional. I played with the Fragrancenet sample for a couple of days. I live at the bottom of the world and never get jaded by samples.
