Let's talk musk - any suggestions?

...in Australia (and New Zealand too, Omni?) musk is used to flavor sweets such as fondant (musk sticks) and Life Savers. I was astounded to learn that this is a pretty restricted market and...

Let's talk musk - any suggestions?

...This is so exciting. I am on a musk binge. Okay, you need to order a Musc Nomade body cream from S/Net and layer it with Kiehls, as the matching perfume is too expensive. The body cream, however, is 60% off full price and is so utterly divine I have used it lavishly

It's true, an alternative to Apres L'Ondee

...Pipette:It is always fun to experiment and play.The perfumer's master piece can only be approximated, but no matter.There will only be one but it's hard to get. People who lose their favourites will go Dr Frankenstein to get it back

It's true, an alternative to Apres L'Ondee

...On Fragrantica Reviews (Apres L'Ondee) a reviewer called Lily has found a way to layer two perfumes to make a respectable alternative to APLO. They are L'Heure Bleu in EDT and Yardley Iris. As I had all three to compare I have done the exercise.The missing cucumber note cannot be replicated but these two layered create a decent alternative, a more than passing resemblance.

Do you have a dog-walking perfume?

...Warm from sleep, a bit bleary eyed, I leave the house early in the morning to walk the dogs. They are little and big, I call them Batman and Robin, the dynamic duo. On the way out of my bedroom, before I let them out of their crates, I usually puff a little smidge of fragrance, Apres L'Ondee, Eau du Sud, Yardley Iris or Noa. The later perfume of the day is a different matter. Do you bother with perfume at this time of day? If you stroll out for coffee is the perfume choice very different?

Your favorite perfumer and most loved creation?

...I seem to favour perfume by Michel Almairac, Cuir Amethyste, the new Ivoire and others. I also follow JCE quite deliberately. My favourite perfumes are Chanel 19 EDP, Musc Nomade, Bal a Versailles, Y (YSL), Mitsouko, Mon Parfum Cherie Par Camille and too many to mention

Wanted: To layer with Musc Nomade Annick Goutal Body Cream

...Dateless and desperate I seem to be replying to my own post. I have found that Elie Saab EDT is rather nice with the Goutal body cream

Wanted: To layer with Musc Nomade Annick Goutal Body Cream

...I am in love with the Body Cream. It is late winter here in the Antipodes; my skin was dry, so I bought some. It's luxurious all right, I can wear it on my neck as a moisturiser and enjoy the perfumed result. Apart from Prada Infusion Iris Absolue it doesn't layer well with other fumes, but this is an addiction. Is there a soft soft rose that would layer with this? I tried Quel Amour and it's too fruity.

Help someone fall in love with me

...For this mission I would wear Ivoire by Balmain, the new one, I love it, not too far from Miss Dior Cherie or Elie Saab, gorgeously romantic

FragranceX and testers?

...I've bought many many from FX.. All good except for my foray into WORTH. I thought to reacquaint myself with Je Reviens and try Courtesan. Both bottles were decidedly off. To be safe I would buy from them if you are planning to use your fumes up within a year or so.

Dead-ringer fragrances as alternative

...I am fascinated with Love Potion No 9 by Penhaligons. This fragrance pre dates Dune by a year or two and is so similar that Sherapop cannot tell the difference. The behommeth that is Dior made Dune into a commercial success and FI award winner whilst little Brit Penhaligons had not a sniff, if you pardon the pun.

Blind Buys - Are you a risk taker? Best + Worst Experiences

...I have Catholic tastes, as in embracing all, not incensey taper fumes, and I actually helped my girlfriend sell Avon for a while. I remember a small bottle of, I think it was Genesis Oil, seeping into my makeup bag. Talk about for-evvah!Triffid, I ordered a small bottle of Je Reviens pure perfume with my Courtesan order and in a way it's a blind buy because I only know it through my Mother in law who has a stash of vintage. Now that gives me an idea for a thread. Let's have fun.
