Cocoa-centric perfumes?
DarkMatter 18.04.2014 | Perfume Recommendations
...tempted to buy loads more, but I have resisted until I know which ones I want first. One of the samples is, of course, "Violet Chocolatier". His "Gold Leather" and "Red Leather" sound amazing as well as "Dirty Rose". I'm really excited to receive them now! :lol...

...sample sellers based in Australia has helped with that, as the international sample sites often have pricey postage. Best: 24 Gold. I just got my hands on 24 Gold Oud Edition, too. Very happy with it!Worst: Rasasi attars. There's something in their attar base that just smells like overly...

Looking for Aldehydes
Triffid 01.12.2013 | Perfume Recommendations
...must tries are "Caleche" by Hermes and "First" by Van Cleef & Arpels (the latter is almost a reference scent for fatty aldehydic perfume). Amouage "Gold Woman" is very similar at five times the price."Calandre" by Paco Rabanne is a lovely rose aldehyde with chypre leanings, very similar to Rive Gauche...

Suggest a warm oud/oriental/balsamic?
MRoth 29.11.2013 | Perfume Recommendations
...my Want list. :) I'll check out Absolue pour le Soir but being an MFK my wallet is probably already running away... I think I've been spoiled by 24 Gold. Niche quality oud for such an amazing price... no wonder it's sold out almost everywhere...

...Dlane1953:I'd buy the perfume version if I were you!I'm with Diana1953. The perfume is Mitsouko at its best. I would also date the set back to the late 1980's/early 1990's. Just had a discusion on Facebook about the "new" Mitsouko. Many people prefer it to the old pre-reformulation stuff. Lucky guys! I wish I could enjoy the Thierry-Wasser-version as much as the old formula. But I can't. Btw, some people claim that "Nahema" will be next on the list.
