Samples from Houses - best experience

Keiko Mercheri
...Very tempting sample program but when you read the fine print while they offer international postage they don't appear to accept credit cards linked to non-American addresses. WTF?

Scent of the Day

...Osmanthus by Liang Zi.Of Chinese origin and not in the database, this obscure little gem starts green but becomes progressively sweeter and more soapy. In sum, it is the smell of osmanthus flowers in the rain. What a pity it doesn't last longer :(

The Scent(s) of China captured in a perfume?

...Osmanthus perfumes also conjure China for me. The lovely Rosecat put me onto these two pretty ones which are made in China and available on ebay: Osmanthus by Liang Zi and Irene.

Vintage Thrills

...According to Perfume Intelligence Gemey was launched in 1923. It disappeared some time in the 1960s. The little faceted bottle I have dates from the late 50s-early 60s I think (if I could work out how to insert an image here I would, might have to see you in the other place on that score) I'm yet to turn up any info re notes or genre, let me know if you do.

...Yes I'm a sucker for old stuff too. Something I love about vintage perfumes is their capacity to both evoke and transcend their eras and it's a shame so many gems have slipped below the cultural radar. I've just made the plunge on Bakir albeit the LLP rendition - having read all those divided reviews I simply had to smell it for myself lol Have you ever come across Richard Hudnut's Gemey? It was pretty big in it's day and IMHO is worthwhile seeking out.

Vintage Thrills

...Hmm, I'll have to think about that one DinD. Outside the big-hitting Gueralins, Chanels and Diors in the general market I think 'value' is very much in the eye of the beholder, and often based on perceived rarity. I was just looking for Nitchevo by Juvena on ebay and saw someone wanted over $300 US for a large bottle :shock: I can only assume the seller thinks that because it is now obscure people might be willing to pay silly money. I had it as a teenager and while not exactly 'drug store' it certainly wasn't high end either! What price nostalgia eh?
