The animalic bad girls

...I don't find some of these animalic on my skin. La Mome, Memoir, and Baiser du Dragon are all tame on me. :-/ Maybe I'm lucky (as I don't particularly like animalic fragrances). The ones that are animalic on me are Costamor "Tabacca" and Habanita.

Which masculine scents can be worn by a woman?

...Sherapop:My understanding is that the question relates to the marketing of the perfumes. So, for example, today I am wearing Caron "Le 3eme Homme" ("The Third Man"), keyword: homme. Clearly this fragrance is intended for men, but women can and do wear it.I am probably the only woman who owns and wears Juicy Couture "Dirty English", which I purchased in the men's fragrance section of a store after having tested it. For some reason it does not smell "dirty" on or to me! 8)Nope. I wear it too. :) I even got several compliments from men who didn't realize it was a male fragrance.

Which masculine scents can be worn by a woman?

...Personally, I like "Midnight in Paris (Eau de Toilette)", "Dirty English", "Timbuktu", "A*Men Pure Havane", and "Avant Garde". I don't think they smell manly on me at all.

Something with a sweet resinous raspberry

...I really love Balmain's "La Mome", but it's a limited edition and very difficult to find nowadays. Any suggestions for something similar, with a dark yet sweet and resinous raspberry note? Thanks. :)

Wearing fragrance when it's hot – friend or foe?

...Interesting. Apparently, citrus DOES smell like sweat! Good to know that it's not just all in my head. For a while, I seriously thought that my nose was going crazy because I noticed this resemblance.

Which perfume will be your next buy ?

...I just ordered "Velvet Flowers" so we will see. I would really like to get "Chocolate Greedy" but I cannot find it for a decent price anywhere on the internet, and unfortunately Fragrancenet no longer carries it. I wish they would because they have great prices for Montales.

Shalimar Parfum Initial - Guerlain

Is Guerlain discontinuing Shalimar Initial?

...I got a backup of Shalimar Initial Si Sensuelle. The price for it is extremely reasonable online, so reasonable in fact, that I am tempted to stock up even more! An amazing bargain. The Souflee flanker looks interesting, but I really like Shalimar Initial and its flankers. It's one of my top 5 favorite perfumes (and if you look at my collection, I have a lot of perfumes).

Comme des Garçons topic, also re. Pharrell

...This is definitely a perfume I would like to try. The notes look interesting and it's refreshing to see a celebrity fragrance from a house other than Coty or Elizabeth Arden (although I like many scents from those houses as well).

№ 06 - Incense Rosé - Tauer Perfumes

Rose and Incense

...Incense rose is definitely the first one that comes to mind. It is quite exquisite. Another one you may want to try is Amouage Lyric. It is a sweet rose with a definite incense note.

Celebrity perfumes: A thread

...Most celeb scents have terrible sillage on me, but Violet Eyes by Elizabeth Taylor and Meow by Katy Perry are definite "loves" for me!

Shalimar Souffle de Parfum - Guerlain

Guerlain - Shalimar Souffle de Parfum

...I love the original and all of the flankers I have tried so far! Keep 'em coming! That's just me though. So far, I have Shalimar, Shalimar Initial, and Shalimar Initial Sensuelle. I have tested some of the "route" flankers and they are great, but just too similar to the original for me to spend money on them. That Shalimar Souflee is intriguing though. I'd buy it for the right price ($70 or under).

Exceptional Because You Are - Exceptional

Do you dare to don "Exceptional"?

...I will apologize in advance for those who love "Exceptional".My only question is.... when will they finally discontinue this useless perfume? I can start a bonfire large enough to burn the whole country down with all of the samples Fragrancenet keeps generously giving me of this "Exceptional".

What perfume have you bought recently?

...My most recent one is Swiss Arabian Barq, although I have also swapped a lot of perfumes. I am currently waiting in the mail for Bath and Body Works Midnight Pomegranate.

Looking for cypress scents

...Another vote for "Fille en Aiguilles". It's a great scent with a lot of piney green notes. :D It was on my want list for the longest time, because other "pine" scents I tried just seemed too herbal or synthetic.

Comments on perfumes: compliments and insults

...I always hear in forums about people getting compliments from random strangers and such. Personally, this rarely ever happens in my own experience. I rarely get any comments regarding my perfumes, let alone compliments. To my bf, they all "smell like powder". And my mom just thinks I have too much. I guess I'm just not a very social person. Or maybe my perfumes just don't smell that good.

Which perfume will be your next buy ?

...Well, since I am too poor to actually buy Ciel, Honour, or Tobacco Vanille due to the costs of fixing up a trailer I will be moving into, I guess my next buy will be "Nour" by Swiss Arabian which I recently added into the database. :)

The Guerlain Aqua Allegoria line: Your favourites?

...I enjoy the scent of the Mandarin Basil one, but have yet to buy anything from this line. I would really like to though! Whenever I have the money.... :(

Shalimar Parfum Initial - Guerlain

Is Guerlain discontinuing Shalimar Initial?

...Sweetgrass:Please let this not be true, I still haven't gotten around to buying my FB and I don't want to eBay hunt for it :( I have grown to love SPI.Many people on Basenotes and Fragrantica are saying that it is indeed being discontinued. Their source for this information is some "Monsieur Guerlain" who posts regarding Guerlain perfumes on Facebook. I do not use Facebook, nor do I know who this "Monsieur Guerlain" is. I am doubtful that he is actually a member of the Guerlain family, and am assuming that he's some sort of a perfume blogger, although I am uncertain and my apologies if I am incorrect. Anyways, I couldn't find any information from Guerlain's site directly, and they won't answer my emails.
