Rance

...I tried some of them in a store but I didn't like them. Those I tried had a cologne touch...fresh, herbal and revitalizing. To me they didn't seem like "perfumes"...But, I got some samples that I have to test at home again with more time.

Warm cherries

...To me "Fendi" has always evoked the association with warm alcoholic cherries. But this is only an imagiantion of mine since I have never eaten Amarena cherries

Perfumes that Smells like a Temple or a Church

..."Clemency" is an abstract and enstranging church with a cold superiority and then there are of course lots of inscense based scents e.g."Messe de Minuit" which is a sweet contrast to Clemency

If you could have your own perfume/cologne ?

...If I could create my own perfume, I would describe the person I wished to be to a perfumista and let him bring this aura into reality. The mere content of favorite notes would never lead to a satisfying result, because the magical moment would be missing. For example I love musk and gardenia, but I learned that these notes do not make a scent. It can either smell soapy, harsh, creamy, charming, clean etc. I do not automatically like all the perfumes that have dominant gardenia and musk in it. I rather love soft, magical symphonies. I like to enjoy the complex orchestra symphony rather than a small band, whose members I know.The description of moods, landscapes, time of day and weather helps a lot as well. Referring to memories doesn't work for me, because they differ a lot depending on age, upbringing, culture and home country i.e. when memories are used for describing a scent, I often cannot relate to them. So to answer your question, I wished to create a scent that contrasts my looks (dark and tall) and which would make my inner self (e.g.light, humble and nice) visible. So the description of a wanna-be person would work best for me- and in my case that would be for example: a fair princess from a fairy tale, a bride, a hidden beauty etc as in contrast to the dark, hot-tempered, seductive, vane woman ;-)

Inspried by the Moon

..."Nocturnes" feels like little stars brightening up the nightly sky- nice and classy! "Broadway Nite" deals with the same subject, but here the stars are rather bright spotlights from big ads and shows that accompany a night out in the city- I didnt like that one! "Nightflight" is the seductive feeling of romantic longing in the black of the night-very nice, but actually a male fragrance, nowaday maybe considered as unisex because of its softness

Scents of Berlin

...Oh, that one is easy :-) To the picture that you draw matches "Narcisse Noir" perfectly. But we dont know, if the women of that time used it. Along with soliflors, scents with strong leather notes were in fashion as well, mainly for women

Perfumes for Hippies

...Oohh, there are so many of them. Often with a lot of spices, e.g. clove, cinnamon, cardamom,cumin etc. A noble and wearable example for a stilish hippie scent would be "Chinatown" IMHO :-)

Arab Perfume Blog

...Dear international users,as we already have mentioned two outstanding blogs by our dear users sherapop and aromierotici, I like to draw your attention to yet another one.To those of you who talk and especially know to read Arabic I like to suggest to take a closer look at http://www.aperfume.info/ As far as I know it is the first Arab perfume blog with a big audience throughout the Arab world.

favorite Gourmand note

...Yes of course you can eat tonka bean. There are lots of dessert varieties with tonka bean, rather to be found at higher priced restaurants for gourmets. But you can do it yourself as well e.g. when cooking a pudding, you put some tonka beans in the milk and leave it for a while and put it on the stove, then the milk gets the delcious tonka bean flavour etc. There is also chocolate with crushed tonka bean in specialised chocolate shops.....mhhhh, I love ths flavour.

favorite Gourmand note

...I am no gourmand lover but I love the gourmand note tonka bean and amber. Ambery scents make me want to bite in the spot of my body wehere I have sprayed the scent on...smells to me like waffles, cooukies and freshly baked cake.But mostly I love tonka bean and my favorite scent with lots of tonka is "By Night White" by profumi del forte.

Favorite notes

more dislikes than likes
...like:gardeniamusktonka beanlight vanilladisklike:patchoulismoky notescumin and other strong spiceswaterlilywoodsoakmosscibetetc.I actually could go on with my dislike list. It is easier for me to name what I don't like, because once I detected a note that I didn't like makes it very easy to detect the same note in future in other frags. Seems as if you get very sensitive about your not-like-notes. Wheras notes that I really like aren't many. E.g. I like rose scent, but it depends on the context of the rose note. Very often rose is mixed with citrics or hesperides, and then I can't stand it.

perfume terminology

...Hi there, as we grow, people from all over the world will join us. We all know English but not all of uas are native speakers. Sometimes we have words in our mind and are not sure weather they would be right in the context of describing a perfume. So, I kindly ask our native speakers to help us out and post the right translation when an international user posts a question.I start first:What is the right word for the development of perfume, the course of time beginning with the top note etc. until the drydown?

invitation to philosophize about perfume

...Dear Sherapop, there is no problem with your idea. You have a very nice site and I understand that you like all disscussions and answers in one blog. The only reason I pointed out my idea and told you about the parfumo-blog-function is that I believe, that in the long run you might have a lot readers here. We experienced on the German Parfumo that the blog-function is very vividly being used, Users like to comment on articles plus new blog articles are currently shown in a directory. My dear, do as ever you prefer. Congrats on your nice site :-) We are happy to have you here :-)

invitation to philosophize about perfume

...Thanks for the kind invitation. That is of course very interesting for all of us. That is why I like to make a suggestion: On Parfumo every user has the opportunity to write blog-articles. In the right corner above you find that icon "Blog". You can easily copy your texts and paste them over here, so that we can read an discuss about your articles, since replies to Parfumo-Blogs are possible and are being vividly used.I am looking forward to reading some of your articles here and commenting on them. Regards, ET :D
