The social ambiguities of fragrance

...Sometimes I think it's just common sense. For example.. If I visit someone with a newborn baby, I would never wear fragrance. If visiting someone in Hospital, I don't wear a heavy scent. I do work several months of the year, in a Hotel, where I reside while working), so when I decide to wear one of my heavy hitters, I use the stairs in the morning, not the lift, until the scent settles a bit. I have my own space where I work, don't share with co workers, so more or less please myself on that score. I love my perfumes, and will always wear them, but with common sense. :)

...Cincy....I will let you know what I think of it...I have a feeling it will be wonderful! I swapped my Shalimar, as couldn't stand the opening ..too citrus notes, so keeping my fingers crossed this is a bit softer!

A question to native English speakers: sillage

...I would probably read projection as sillage when used in a review, but Pipette and Dalmajen's descriptions are correct. In the perfume world, I think both words could be used interchangeably without researching the history. I suppose it...

A question to native English speakers: sillage

...Pipette has explained this perfectly! The Projection is how much the perfume radiates from the skin, and the sillage leaves a trail. I suppose, in reality, without projection, there can't be a perfumed trail, as the scent has not projected, or strong enough to leave a scented trail. So, it may be how the person explains his or her thoughts on a certain perfume. Another thought...Projection may be a short, strong burst of radiating scent, where as the Sillage is a much more lasting impression.

How do you feel about the oud trend?

...I am waiting for some samples, with Oud. Can't wait to try them, as am pretty curious. I suppose that Gentleman in the fragrance shop knew what he was talking about, coming from Saudi Arabia.But, these things sometimes come in waves of popularity...popular for a few months, then all these new fragrances just cash in on the craze. Will let you know what I think of Oud, when I get the samples!

The end of a love affair-Scents that have lost their magic ?

...Eurochic:I got the big 200ml bottle of "Beige" and now I'm so bored with it. I wish they would sell smaller bottles of the Les Exclusifs line.I have to say also that one day a perfume may smell really nice on me, and the next day it may smell completely off. Does anyone know when is the best timing to try out a new perfume (talking about hormonal fluctuations here, sorry guys). I got the 75ml. Coromandel, mainly because I couldn't afford the bigger one! Just store your Beige away, and you will go back to it, it's too damn beautiful to ignore for long! It's normal to have off days, for fragrances etc. (especially for the ladies) . I think being bored with a fragrance is O.K, as you will come back to it. But when you start to really dislike it, that's when the love affair with the scent is over!

№ 04 - Rêverie au Jardin - Tauer Perfumes
DalmajenDalmajen   20.01.2013 | Perfumes & Brands

Tauer scents

...I love his no.12 Eau D'Epices, and wrote a review on this one. I also really like no.04 Reverie au Jardin, and will probably review this soon. I have several samples, and find his scents very unique. They are strong, and for my taste, quite unusual. Most of them have a very prominent Smoke accord. I prefer no.12 to the famous no.02 LADDM.

The end of a love affair-Scents that have lost their magic ?

...Yes, this is an interesting question, as lately, I don't want to wear my cashmere mist, or Boucheron as much as before. The notes just don't seem to appeal like they used to. They have not turned, as they are not old, and always are stored properly. It just seems to me, as the magic is not there anymore. :roll:
