Which perfume will be your next buy ?

...From my last round of fragrance buying which was last Fall- time flies- I am managing to go 6 months until my next full bottle purchase & hopefully higher paying job! I went with Child (blind buy). It was just o.k. not worth all the hype, IMHO. Next round coming up in Spring here in a month or so I will dedicate to a Camellia or Orris root dominant Fragrance. Narrowed it down to One (I swear!) of the following:Camellia: Aroma M Camellia Perfume or Joya Composition No.1Orris Root: Not sure yet, more sampling is required!

Were you ever just a second too late for a bargain?

...Sleuth:Oh, that sucks :( I looked around for it a bit, but you're right it's really difficult to find.Maybe it's an idea to look at the Parfumo souk often, to see if it's offered as a 2nd hand bottle. It surprises me how many new bottles are added there every day.Actually some nice person had an extra full bottle to sell & contacted me and then there is the problem with the US Postal Service rules on liquids...That is a whole other topic!

Were you ever just a second too late for a bargain?

...I saw someone post that Penhaligon's Lily and Spice was being discontinued was available for 2 weeks only and was totally reasonably priced at 25% off normal while supplies last- totally ignored this announcement- wore my sample to a trade show...Security guards were flirting with me, ladies and gents were saying I smelled so lovely...now I can't find anything like it. Argghhhh!

Geranium pour Monsieur - Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle

Suggestions for a fragrance with geranium?

...The one that comes to mind immediately is Diptyque's "Geranium Odorata". I have smelled this- it is a little peppery, IMHO. It has a big dose of bergamot in the mix. They other is Penhaligon's "English Fern". Which is on my FB wishlist, it is so green and delightful!

Asafoetida in Perfumery. Discuss?

...Premier Figuier by L'Artisan also contains a good dose of asafoetida, apparently. Although, I would hardly called Premier Figuier "stinky" or unpleasant. I too have encountered asafetida in the culinary setting, when a dear friend of mind decided to make me a grand birthday feast of traditional cuisine from her home region of Madras, she purchased this pungent talisman and added 1/8 tsp. directly to my new rice steamer. New rice steamer in the garbage by the end of the evening...somethings, one just can't un-smell. I was surprised to learn that the beautiful and discontinued Tendre Poison by Dior contains Asafoetida, as well!

What is your "Holy Grail" of perfume?

Following this topic with Keen Interest!
...Honestly, I have been 'down the rabbit hole' so many times...chasing a dream...followed by capture and release, disappointment...I can't even set my sights on another "Precious" so many to try and "still haven't found what I am looking for". Those that have come close as in if I had I would wear daily and adore- Malle/ Ropion's "Carnal Flower", Peau de Peche by Keiko Mecheri, Revelation by CB I hate Perfume...

Hawthorn

...You read my mind! I was just thinking about "Daim Blonde" by Serge Lutens and "Mihime" by Keiko Mecheri and trying to mentally grasp the common note of Hawthorn in both of these so I began to research other fragrances to try in this group and "Beige" by Chanel is recommended.

Laura Ashley No 1 (2012)

...Tinctureall:I haven't tried the new one but remember loving the original. Have you got the old to do a side by side?Hi Tinctureall, So true, the original was excellent and I haven't found anything even similar. Unfortunately I don't have the original. It's gotten very difficult to find from trusted sources. It was so popular in the early 90s that I didn't even stock up because everyone else was wearing it and I was into having a unique signature scent- so I chose something else- Paco Rabanne "Calandre", as I recall (fool that I am! I wasn't yet collecting fragrances.) I guess I could invest in a sample from one of the purveyors of out-of-production scents. I see the notes for the newer version are not even close to those for the original, so I am wondering if it is even worth it. It says on the website "a modern interpretation of the classic" so that is fairly vague. Notes on the 2012 version say "cassis, victorian plum, violet leaves, marshmallow and green water stem." versus the original which was "peach, bergamot, orange blossom, gardenia, galbanum, narcissus, rose, jasmine, carnation, cinnamon, basil, sandalwood, musk, vanilla, cyclamen and oakmoss"...hmmm. What do you think?
