New Guerlain releases Yay or Nay

...Epices volees is the renaming of Arsene Lupin Voyou. Oeillet pourpre is the renaming of Lui. Herbes troublantes is the renaming of Un dimanche a la campagne.

Some rare finds of Guerlain - listen up!

...Thank you ScentFan for these pictures. That is reassuring. But also a bit worrying that Montale are allowing these errors on their bottles. :?

Some rare finds of Guerlain - listen up!

...thank you for the info.I was looking at this site and had some doubts about authenticity. I was checking the Montales, and on one of the pictures of the bottom of a box, I saw mistakes in the English printed text. I think it was the Chocolate Greedy. I haven't seen the Montales so I can't compare, but would a reputable house let a mistake like that slip?http://www.universalperfumesandcosmetics.com/image/cache/data/Abo%20Ali/IMG_0878-500x500.jpg

Trying Harder

...I also have a few bottles that I love to sniff, but can't wear."Chanel No.5" is only one of them. I think I may have a problem with aldehydes.

Trip to Tokyo - best niche perfumeries?

...You're welcome. The last time I was at the Shiseido The Ginza boutique, they didn't have the bell jar bottles. That was 3 years ago or so (I live in Osaka, not Tokyo). I doubt they have them now, because when I see a rare jar bottle pop up on the Japan yahoo auction site it always says "bought in Paris" and they get snatched up in a second.Have fun on your trip.

The Guerlain Aqua Allegoria line: Your favourites?

...my favourite is Ylang Vanille. It's sunny and soft, but also warm and comforting. I find it easy to wear all year round, and it's pretty close to being something like my signature.

Trip to Tokyo - best niche perfumeries?

...the list on the blog link you provided is pretty awesome.I would just add that Serge Lutens can be found in some department stores in the fragrance section, most often in the men's section, not at the Shiseido makeup counter. The fragrance selection in Isetan Shinjuku Men's store (different building from Isetan Shinjuku) is great.Regarding Shiseido perfumes, they are usually sold at Shiseido counters in drugstores. The counters in the department stores focus on skincare and makeup.here is a list of the brands currently available at Isetan Shinjukuhttp://www.isetan.co.jp/icm2/jsp/shops/beauty/cosmetics_brand/index.jsp;jsessionid=71188F129D41722427F3150229958955#fragranceand the list of brands in Isetan Men'shttp://www.isetan.co.jp/icm2/jsp/store/shinjuku/mens/floor/map_1f.jsp

Tauer - new Explorer 15ml sample sets

...Triffid:I just received a notification from Tauer Perfumes advising that four new perfumes have been added to the selections available in the Explorer Set. These are: 01 Le Maroc Pour Elle, 04 Reverie au Jardin, 07 Vetiver Dance and Zeta. There is an introductory offer of a 20% discount on these ones until Feb 14.None are my personal faves but with the 15ml size, sometimes 'like' can be good enough to make up a set.Thank you for the information. I checked that 15ml sampler set a few months ago and didn't order it bc it didn't include Le Maroc Pour Elle which is the one I wanted most.Now I can go and order a set :)

Tauer scents

...I haven't tried all the Tauer perfumes, but the one I like most, and full bottle worthy for me, is Lys du Desert, the limited edition he made for Lucky Scent. It is one of a kind, and it takes me to a happy place.

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

...Dalmajen: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!Well, here in Japan they only sell the 200ml ones. It's ridiculous. I have put it back in the box and in a dark and cool drawer, maybe I'll go back to it. It's a pity it doesn't last though. I'm halfway through Coromandel, also 200ml. No regrets there ;)

The functional no-nos of perfume bottles

...Sherapop:Eurochic:@HayvenI understand about the fear of breaking a toe or two. That 75ml bottle weighs a ton :shock:The Gucci eau de parfum bottle is so beautiful--I love it! I'm glad that you brought that perfume up. I have not worn it in a while and did not realize that it was signed by Daniela Andrier! 8)It's my signature, I love it more than anything and am stocking up on it. .And now I have to go google Daniela Andrier :)

Living well is the best revenge...

...Cincy, don't break the bottle, there are little gadgets that can help you get the stuff out. I'm going to send you a PM. And if you don't like the Gucci, I'm a taker, LOL.

The functional no-nos of perfume bottles

...Two of my favourite perfumes have the most unpractical bottles."gucci Eau de Parfum" is so heavy, it is really hard to spray (unless you have the 30ml bottle, that one is ok) and "summer by Kenzo" doesn't stand, so I have to lay it flat somewhere, and it takes up too much space.

Less likely to buy discontinued fragrances?

...I don't really hunt for vintages, but as it turns out, most of my favourite perfumes are already discontinued. I try new releases, hoping to find something I will love as much and will make me give up on my discontinued loves, but so far I haven't found anything that makes me feel as good as my treasured discontinued perfumes. So I try to stock up on my favourite 4 or 5.

Living well is the best revenge...

...There are so many perfumes that make me feel good, it changes from day to day, depending on my mood, and my chemistry. In the morning when choosing my perfume I sniff the nozzles, and pick the one that "speaks to me" that day.One that never fails to make me feel good is "Gucci Eau de Parfum". When I wear this I just want to sniff the skin off my arms. I could bathe or drown in this stuff.
