Cleaning Travel Sprays

...I've been there...A dear perfume swapping friend sent me a 15ml decant of a perfume I was anxious to try. It was a very sweet gesture but I ended up disliking the perfume, but the decant bottle was worth keeping. I moved the unwanted perfume to smaller glass travel atomizers and gave those away. I cleaned, scrubbed, soaked, bleached, et cetera that larger decant bottle but I could not get rid of the previous perfume's smell. I had to accept that the bottle was a loss.I'd love to hear if anyone has had any success but, in my case, it was a loss.

Modern Dirty-florals with a vintage flair

...I know you mentioned a fondness for Miller Harris. Have you tried "L'Air de Rien"? I wanted to like it but I found it too dank, due to the heavy oakmoss on my skin. It had the same vibe as "Agent Provocateur" but creamier (vanilla).Vintage (and vintage-inspired) florals I've been enjoying:→♦ Ralph Lauren "Safari"→♦ Jean-Louis Scherrer "Jean-Louis Scherrer (Eau de Toilette)"→♦ Bond No. 9 "Madison Soirée"→♦ Jean Desprez "Bal à Versailles (Eau de Toilette)"→♦ Rochas "Madame Rochas (1989) (Eau de Parfum)"

Summer date fragrance suggestions

...It's hard to suggest anything when you have no wardrobe (**hint, hint**). Personally, I love smelling something citrusy on a man in the summer. Maybe something like Molinard's "Double Fraîcheur"?

What are your favorite Caron scents?

Re: What are your favorite Caron scents?
...SilverStache:Last year, it was found out that they were discontinuing many perfumes from this illustrious house such as Nuit de Noel, Farnesiana, Tabac Blond, Poivre, etc... literally the whole line of classics. Very disconcerting knowledge to say the least....Well, please let us know what are you favorites!That's absolutely heartbreaking! I thought I read somewhere that William Fraysse, house perfumer Richard Fraysse's son, was bringing back the classics. Then again, that might be wishful thinking on my part.My favorites: · "Violette Précieuse"· "Pour Un Homme de Caron"· "Aimez-Moi", "Bellodgia"· "Pour Une Femme de Caron"· "Muguet du Bonheur"· "Parfum Sacré"· "Nocturnes"

Smell-alike Fossil 1954 Women

...I went over to the page for "Fossil 1954 for Women" and a user claims that "Dior Addict Eau Fraîche (2014)" smells similar. (Btw, I just read your review for Fossil 1954--it sounds lovely and it's shameful it was discontinued.) I'm sorry I'm not familiar with this particular scent but I hope that helps in your search! :)

Trip abroad what would you bring with you?

...First tip: get traveling atomizers or some kind of decanter made for traveling. (I'm probably telling you something you already know but I've known people who've lost precious scents while traveling, so...)Hmm, my go-to scents when I'm feeling tropical are usually from Comptoir Sud Pacifique. My particular favorites are "Aloha Tiaré (Eau de Toilette)", "Fleurs des Caraïbes", and "Vanille Coco". The brand is reasonably priced and very strong performers on my skin.

Soothing Lavender Perfume (Soapy or Refined)

..."Pour Un Homme de Caron (Eau de Toilette)" is one of the best lavender scents on the market. It's so soothing and unobtrusive. It's great alone or layered too. I find it to be unisex but very versatile.

Forest and Melancholia scents

...I get this forest-like vibe from Clinique's Wrappings. I have a strong love/hate relationship with oakmoss and, because of this, I had to get rid of my bottle. It's very mossy and coniferous. It is released only during the holiday season, which means it might be available now.Another forest scent to consider is The Vagabond Prince's Enchanted Forest. It's not necessarily mossy but it is very dark with strong coniferous elements and forest berries. Don't be scared off by the berries; it's not a gourmand in any way. It's phenomenal.

Remembering M. Oscar de la Renta

...I love L'Heure Bleue so much! I'll try to get a sample of Oscar and see it through a forty-three-year-old's filter. Sixteen-year-old me wasn't quite as refined. :D

...might have done, Exciter76. I know my tastes have changed back and forth over the decades more with food than anything, but sometimes after I have used a fragrance a few times...

Remembering M. Oscar de la Renta

...My mom had a bottle of his eponymous fragrance, given to her as a birthday present. She hated it and promptly passed it over to me. I wasn't crazy about it but I was in love with the bottle. I wore it for about six months before I decided I could not stomach it any longer. I found it too sweet and too powdery. Unfortunately, that first experience has colored my view of the entire perfume house. I haven't smelled it since but I'd be curious if my opinion has changed.
