Looking for more lavender fragrances

...Some ideas:English Lavender / English Lavender WaterEnglish Lavender - old school and strong; all about the lavenderPour Un Homme de Caron (Eau de Toilette)Pour Un Homme de Caron Eau de Toilette - also lavender-heavy; not so much a typical fresh scent with its amber and muskJersey (Eau de Parfum)Jersey Eau de Parfum - Chanel's idea of lavenderBeau de Jour (Eau de Parfum)Beau de Jour Eau de Parfum - barbershoppyJicky (Eau de Toilette)Jicky Eau de Toilette - with a civet kickMon Guerlain (Eau de Parfum)Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum - sugary sweetOr if your're solely after the therapeutic effect of lavender, consider getting essential oil instead of perfume. You will get a single pure lavender scent.

Neroli Fragrances

...DrHsgualBrutal in what degree? Some of the ingredients overlap with others in my collection.It's the musk that makes this one different. Most neroli fragrances have a fresh, clean type of musk that makes you have a 'freshly showered' sensation. This one contains a musk that goes exactly the opposite direction and gives a nasty funky experience. Perhaps you have heard of Kouros (Eau de Toilette)Kouros Eau de Toilette and how it is called 'animalic' sometimes. Well, Neroli AnimalisNeroli Animalis is 10 times Kouros in that sense. Makes a good conversation starter, but obviously not suitable for daily wear.

Neroli Fragrances

...Hi DrHsgual, here's a few suggestions:Acqua di Parma - this brand hits the sweet spot between designer and exclusive. pretty much their whole range is built around the cologne/neroli theme001 Fleur d'Oranger Petit Grain Bergamote001 Fleur d'Oranger Petit Grain Bergamote - 'affordable niche', pretty safe take on neroli+lavender in EDT concentrationLe Petit GrainLe Petit Grain - this is neroli in EDP concentration. straightforward masculine neroli+petitgrain on a long lasting woody baseNéroli IntenseNéroli Intense - EDP, top quality neroli with honey, unisexFleurs d'orangerFleurs d'oranger - EDP, opens with white florals that turn into a spicy neroli, unisexNeroli AnimalisNeroli Animalis - EDP, try at your own risk, this is a brutal animalic take on neroli

is it possible to ask here for help identifying a perfume?

...What a lovely asymmetric bottle! The name mentioned suggest something Indian/Hindi. So I went through the Parfumo database for all the perfumes made in India (which are not that many), but didn't find anything. Too bad!Anyway, hopefully someone else does recognize the perfume. Good luck with your search.

FAKE OR NOT? Versace crystal noir

...Hi, I have no experience in buying this particular perfume. The batch code may be an indication something is wrong, but then again the checkfresh database isn't perfect either.I used to consider Notino a reliable source. But nowadays I've come across a number of posts with odd looking bottles or boxes, asking whether they are fakes. Because Notino is a 'gray market seller', there simply is no 100% guarantee of authenticity.Have you tried contacting Versace customer care?

Masculine patchouli

...Hi, Of course taste for perfume is very personal. So it is hard to find a good match. Still, here’s a few suggestions. Hope it helps Patchouli Intense / Patchouli Homme (Eau de Parfum)Patchouli Intense Eau de Parfum from a niche house that has received great praise. It’s masculine and has a unique, complex scent. My personal favorite at the moment.Maybe more unisex than masculine, but very well known and with great ratings across the boards is Coromandel (Eau de Parfum)Coromandel Eau de Parfum For a more affordable and classic gentleman style: Héritage (Eau de Toilette)Héritage Eau de Toilette From a more fashionable brand (although patchouli is always a bit dusty) Patchouli AbsoluPatchouli Absolu good luck with finding a nice gift!

Banana Note in Dolce & Gabbana Sicily

...Indeed, I can’t think of any perfume that actually has a banana note listed. A quick scan in Parfumo’s database doesn’t return any familiar perfumes either.However, i do get a banana-like impression in Jasmine OD / Bubblegum ChicJasmine OD and I read reviews of Songes (Eau de Toilette)Songes Eau de Toilette mentioning a banana touch. I’m wondering if that is a facet of the jasmin-sambac, which may also be present in Sicily?

Big Jasmine, Where Art Thou?

...Well this topic sure deserves a revival. I’m a huge huge fan of white florals, and jasmin in particular. From delicate green to obnoxiously loud. As long as jasmin is the star player, I love it. A few of my favorites:Jasmin et CigaretteJasmin et Cigarette is simply brilliant. Indolic and somewhat on the animalic side. Lust / Lady Flower (Perfume)Lust Perfume this one is a lot of fun, a party in itself. Indolic not animalic. Big and incredibly loudJasminJasmin dark brown and masculine. Heavy on spice and muskJasmin (2020)Jasmin (2020) somber and serious jasmin topped up with cuminJoy (Eau de Parfum)Joy Eau de Parfum jasmin on civet. One of my alltime favorites, modern version is more lily of the valley than jasmin, thoughJasmine OD / Bubblegum ChicJasmine OD focuses on the sweet and fruity aspects, with a tacky bubblegum impression at firstHoping to get my hands on soon:À la nuitÀ la nuit SarrasinsSarrasins love to hear all your suggestions, guys

New Guerlain releases Yay or Nay

...From my point of view, this marketing overhaul comes a bit premature. I was just starting to get familiar with the L'art bottles, which are timeless art pieces. Same goes for the beehive bottles and the wooden Frenchy bottles. Only the élixirs bottles, I never liked those. Anyway.. Judging from the recent entries in the Parfumo database, the glasswork looks solid heavy quality. Not bad! I just hope that cap isn't too plastic-y. It is so BIG!

Online perfume shops in Europe?

...Hi, I order nearly all my perfumes from online shops. Both bottles and samples.For designers I can recommend Notino.comNiches I order at NL based Parfumaria.com I have had bad experiences with FragranceX. Extremely slow shipping and awful customer care. Avoid at all time, I’d say.
