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

...Triffid:I wear the Chanel "Allure Homme Edition Blanche" myself and two of the men in my household are "Gucci Pour Homme II" wearers. I think the majority of us have largely designer scent collections with a handful of niche, vintage or pricier scents. There's no shame in collecting budget or designer frags!I ordered Courtesan by Worth as a Blind Buy. It hasn't come yet. It was inexpensive at the online discounters. My best blind buy was Loris Azzaro's Couture, $25 NZ dollars from SNet on a daily special. It's happiness in a bottle, so effervescent and yet so posh. Love it. Sometimes I'm not so lucky, but hey, I'm not playing the one armed bandits in a seedy dive, I'm a perfume hobbyist and I have a budget, mostly, fairly consistently, with a little leeway

Where to get Shalimar pure perfume?

Re: Where to get Shalimar pure perfume?
...Esoada:Where can I buy a real Shalimar pure perfume?I live in SwedenGo to Fragrancex. At the bottom of the page is a menu that lists Pure Perfume. It's all in Black, the print I mean, so take your time to find. Shalimar Pure Perfume is listed as of today. I live in New Zealand, at the bottom of the world, and order frequently from this site. I have had no problems although sometimes it can take a couple of weeks.

What fragrance group/s do you prefer ?

...dont know how it happened but I seem to be a sucker for the leather/violet combo. but I am promiscuous, as you would expect from a leather/violet lover. The humble bee doesn't worry where it gets its pollen from.

Sense of Smell and Skin Chemistry - figment and myth?

...I haven't read the links yet but it seems until we understand how we process smells, i.e. the science, that this subject is wide open. There will be trolls and there will be genuine interest. Here's something interesting: my daughter can only use white towels because she turns every coloured towel into a blotched discolouration, not make up, just her skin. She wears Chanel perfumes as if they had a 500 year half life but on me, nah, gone.

Trying Harder

...I do find it entertaining that Setge Lutens, Jo Malone and Jean Claude Ellena advocate the layering of their fragrances and that JCE provided layering advice for readers of Elle magazine. I certainly haven't tried any of my own except the Yardley Iris which happened by accident when I forgot what I was wearing. It's all grist for the perfume mill.

Trying Harder

...Triffid:Well, I wear "big" perfumes to walk the dog, as does Mr Triffid. The dog sniffs the telegraph poles and we humans sniff our perfume cloud (also keeps our noses distracted from the contents of the loaded doggy doo bag we're carrying). We're a toxic couple in enclosed spaces but add a stiff breeze and a street-length personal space and we're good to go!My Tea Rose has arrived so I might try layering it with the Aromatics Elixir tonight. I suspect it will end up smelling like JHAG Vengeance Extreme.Oh Triffid, you are gorgeous, I love the mental picture of Mr and Mrs Triffid dispatching fragrant goodwill to all men, (nankind) even if they're on the moon, what beautiful clear skies you must enjoy, sillage all the way to the space station. You go, girl!
