...How much the name of a perfume calls for attention? How close is the name related to the harmony of the scent? How deceiving could the name be?I am not talking about leathers (cuir) or tabaccos or soliflore. Their names are straight as an arrow. No confusion there.But what about "Putain des Palaces", Angelique Sous la Pluie etc. You can also think about some ones. What determines the name of a perfume?
What Scents Have You Pulled Out For Fall's Cooler Weather?
...Just thinking about autum/winter warmer scents ( Because I am wearing perfumes for the state of mind and the color they can create for my day) I would start the list with Iris de Nuit by Heeley, Cuir Pleine Fleure by the same Heeley, Shalimar, L'Heure Bleue et Mitsouko, the Oyedo by Diptique and a less known scent Linden from the Library of Perfumes. They are all warm and "heavy" and of a deep yellow/rusty/violet color. At least this is how I see them.

Lasting power, your thoughts
...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.
