Vanilla Noir. A man in a nightclub followed me all night and kept calling me 'his Beyonce'. It was a weird experience but I'll attribute the weird behavior with alcohol and vanilla.
Voile d'Ocre yesterday as part of a promotion. I really liked it and it was free with my makeup primer order. You can't beat free, right? :)
...Amir1990kkعطر يا ويل من رمساتPerfume Ya Will from Ramasat?Sorry, I had to run this through Google translate. I've never heard of it but I really love the horse themed bottle.
Narcisse Eau de Toilette years ago. I tried it and found it cloying. Oh, and I hated the drydown so much! I gave it to my mom, who tucked it away, never to be seen again. After she passed away the bottle came back to me. I remembered hating it so I tried to get rid of it but no one would have it. I tried it again and FELL IN LOVE. Shout-it-from-the-rooftops kind of love. I don't know what happened but I'm so smitten with it. It reminds me of one of my biggest loves, Organza Eau de Parfum, though I can't put my finger on why this is so. I'm grateful no one would take it.I know I can't be the only one who's had this type of delayed experience. Has this happened to you? What scent was once a scrubber but is now a favorite? I'd love to know! Maybe I need to go back and try some other scents I once dismissed.
...Off topic (sort of) but I have a few ylang ylang perfumes and they smell banana-ish to my nose. Fleurs des Caraïbes is a banana-like tropical scent, akin to banana flavored Now and Later chews. I wonder if that's what's giving Songes Eau de Toilette its banana impression?
G I R L by Pharrell Williams, a woody sweet-ish vetiver and violet unisex scent with an intriguingly odd bottle.I went to see your wardrobe and noticed it's empty. When you have a chance fill in your wardrobe so other members can better suggest scents for you. And also, I'm nosey and I'd love to see what you enjoy! 🙂
Mandarin Jasmine #994 that was pure oranges... and jasmine. However, it's not musky but rather a straightforward oranges/jasmine scent. But you have to like jasmine. Right now, Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca is satisfying that "pure oranges" craving for me. I don't detect musk but it is the entire orange tree in a bottle.
...PowpowOutremer vanille (cotton candy, brown sugar, like vanilla)and even less expensivePacifica Island Vanilla (Tahitian vanilla, tea, bourbon, ice cream)I was going to suggest Island Vanilla Perfume also. It's my summer go-to vanilla. If you don't mind oils try Vanilla Bean. It's a straightforward vanilla but it's cheap, fantastic smelling, and long lasting.
St. Martin was my favorite in the sampler.) The fragrances were pretty, if not sparse, but the longevity was lacking. Longevity is my biggest issue with natural perfumes. Given their high prices and how fleeting they are on my skin, natural perfumes are hard for me to love.
...I'm in love with Kyse Perfumes and Ganache Parfums, both out of Northern California. If gourmands appeal to you, these houses are a great source. The prices are reasonable and the scents are unforgettable. If anything, Sucré et Fleurs was my signature several years ago. I was hooked!
