How to remove perfume?

I agree but in Step 4 I use a scented Body cream.

Happiest Three

...Great thought topic! Currently my olfactory happy places are:1. Derek Lam 10 Crosby- "Silent Saint"- wispy cottony musk2. Tom Ford- "Portofino Neroli"3. Jo Malone- "Lime, Basil and Mandarin"These are not necessarily my favorite fragrances all the time, but I wear these for that boost and to ward off the blues. This Spring I am looking for a new suggestion in the citrus, Mango or jasmine family to keep a smile plastered on my face. And so the quest continues!

Tragedy. When perfumes turn

...Flavorite, that's a bad scene. Milky Floaters. I'll be damned, never seen anything like that, it's bad enough to lose the thrill. And in spite of everything...

Tragedy. When perfumes turn

Off Appearance
...I have a bottle of Chloe's Fleurs de Capucine that is actually growing a milky residue. Fortunately, it is replaceable for a reasonable price. I got it as a trade so I can't say how it spent the first part of it's life, but it's been stored in a dark cool cupboard for the past year. It smells O.K....I think-but white milky floaters spells an easy way to get MRSA infections to my Microbiologist-Mind. Not worth it. So sad, it's still nearly full. Any one else have a visual deterioration issue?

sinus friendly fragrances?

...Flavorite, I think all three have something synthetic that the other Serge Lutens perfs don't. Maybe there's less of it in Sarrasins but eventually it closes...

sinus friendly fragrances?

...ScentFan:I have major problems with some scents, too: all of PK Perfumes and Tauer Perfumes, for instance, and some Oriza L. LeGrand, beautiful though they are. Lines or houses that never seem to bother me are: AmouageBijanCaronClive ChristianCotyCreedDior Private CollectionD. S. & DurgaGrèsGuerlainJoop!JovoyL'ArtisanPaco RabanneParfums de NicolaiPerfumer's WorkshopRamon MonegalSalvador DaliSerge Lutens (except L'Eau Froide, Nuit de Cellophane, and Sarrasins which swiftly close my nose)SlumberhouseOMG! Bingo on the Nuit de Cellophane for me too. I have sampled almost all of this house, love quite a few...but Nuit de cellophane I blind bought a 50 ml bottle and it smells wonderful but immediately causing my sinuses to close up and sneezing! So weird!!!

sinus friendly fragrances?

...My non-sinus irritating fragrance list is quite small...my collection gently weeps...but here are some that I have found tolerable in this phase (it is jut a temporary phase, right?!):1. Le Labo- Ambrette 9 (Alcohol-free/water based "baby formulation") requires layering with body wash, fragrance oil...to get decent longevity- but I love the peachy musky scent.2. Chanel Cristalle Au Verte3. Il Profvmo- Musc Bleu4. Helmut Lang- Men's cologne (which is actually very unisex on me)5. Honore de Pres- Love Coco- you must love coconut, carrots and sandalwood to wear, but...6. Santa Maria Novella- Muschio7. Ava Luxe- everything I've sampled seems fine from this line (LTBL, Cafe Noir, Figuier, Nude Musc)

Do you have a dog-walking perfume?

...Cincy:No way would I wear fragrance when walking my dog. Many marshes where mosquitoes breed and swarm are attracted to the smell. :twisted:I used to save my "With Love" by Hilary Duff for walking in the swampy forest behind my house...I think it has a natural bug repellent in it (cedarwood oil, most likely).

Do you have a dog-walking perfume?

...Wow, Cryptic...that is so true! I never really considered my dogs or cat's feelings about my "stinky obsession"- it's must be totally overwhelming for them to be in the same room with all those different testers when we're trying 4 or 5 different fragrances in a day at such high intensity. I'm going to test cheese and bacon fragrances next just to give them a treat.

sinus friendly fragrances?

...Yep! Having made the same discovery recently...oh, the irony! My Ambrette 9 water based fragrance (for babies) doesn't bother me at all- down side it last for all of 5 minutes- tried to "booster" with the alcohol based version- massive headache...ugh! Not sure what triggers it for me- it seems not just alcohol but some other oils or fixative really exaggerate the condition. I love Aqua Di Parma Colonia- but this one really causes problems along with Serge Luten's Nuit De Cellophane, Carnal Flower and my beloved signature scent Peau De Peche (which does have a large dose of aldehydes in the base). The biggest offenders are Eternity Calvin Klein and my Sensi sample. The least offending- Penhaligon's formulations, Not sure which direction to turn now- tried just pure oils but "Child" perfume oil and Saffron James "Punono" oils also trigger sneezing fits and vicious sinus pain/ migraines. The problem runs across era, class, price, notes formulation for me.

Do you have a dog-walking perfume?

...I don't even always wear pants when I walk the dogs in the morning! They wake up at about 5:30am these days ready to rage-pee on the nice creamy colored carpet. But if I did have time to spritz/dab something- I think it would be Ava Luxe- Cafe Noir

Let's talk musk - any suggestions?

...Love Musks!Like wine, it keeps me awake at night worrying that I will never be able to try them all before I die!My holy grail musk, so far is Santa Maria Novella Muschio followed closely by Musc Bleu by IL Profvumo. These two will always stay in my collection.I have a range from the Jovan White Musk/Body Shop classic clean White Musk to Le Labo Musc 25 which is clean and weirdly like a certain male bodily fluid at the same time, yet oddly wearable and business appropriate. I also love my Bruno Acampora Eau de Musc- which last 24 hours and goes from a vintage floral musk to a super clean soapy light musk after several hours- it actually gets cleaner over time (?). I have a sample of Mona di Orio D'Or Musc- which I was scared to try- I was expecting super dirty and skanky and it turns out to be shockingly soft and J&J Baby powdery almost like a loukhoum scent. Scary and brilliant musks that I have tried are both by Nasomato- Black Afghano (or as I call it 'Khal Drogo'/'the Wrath of Khan' musk) and Silver Musk- which to me starts of light and fresh and becomes a vegetal galaxolide wave and then becomes a spicy cardamom tigress lasting 12 hours easily.Does anyone want to comment on Royal Muska by M. Micallef or Al-Rehab or Montale Musks? I smelled all of the Montale line in one day so I can't really remember any thing but I know there are a lot of them!
