Perfumes for Hippies
Rebella 04.02.2012 | Miscellaneous
...Stereotyping hippies in my mind and comes up with; perfume oils, if the hippie is picky and wants a lot to chose from then I suggest a check around at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. If the hippie in mind does have a little troubble about deciding and are a little more easy going I suggest to check out the mood lifting (not to serious) offerings at Smell Bent. Hippies that don´t like oils and are a little more high maintanance could go for some of the pleasant all natural perfume brands, taht would be very pleasing fot he save the earth kind of hippie I think. Or maybe the hippie want´s to support small, indie kind perfumers? Show him/her Ava Luxe, Neil Morris, Sonoma Scent Studio, Slumberhouse, Dawn Spencer Hurwitz (there are a lot of other indie brands out there, I just mention a few). If the hippie is more a high end boho chic kind of hippie with a good and balanced budget, I guess Nasomatto have some to offer or even Serge Lutens has that hippiechic aura according to me.

Which perfume will be your next buy ?
Rebella 01.02.2012 | Miscellaneous
...Finally "Tabac Blond" is on it´s way home. :D And I "accidently" order a bottle of Montale´s "Vanille Absolu" *ooooops*.Next in line should be Farmacia Annunziatas "Ambra Nera" or if I can get it somehow Guerlains "Spiritueuse Double Vanille". But I´m not only high maintanance, a bottle of Tokyo Milk´s Dead Sexy wouldn´t be that wrong either.

Cultural influence on perfume taste
Rebella 28.01.2012 | Miscellaneous
...Oh, in that case swedish (and scandinavians in general I guess) are more like americans, then south europeans. Everything marketed as clean and fresh is on the perfume toplist here. And not to mention all the different celebrity scents. So, fresh, clean, fruityfloral and with some celebrity name on it, it´s a total success here. :? In Sweden we don´t have much of a perfume tradition as in countries in southern europe, and middle east, india and so on. But, on the other hand swedes are very trendy and I think brands like swedish Byredo is popular among people without an actual perfume interest, but that wants to feel more unique then wearing the average drugstore brand. Comme des Garcons is also a little more known in sweden. I can´t say my american perfumista friends differs so much in taste from my european one´s or south american and so on.

Storing & Organising Your Perfumes
Rebella 23.01.2012 | Miscellaneous
...I have most of my samples in test tube racks, stored in alphabetical order in small drawers. The bottles I have in rotation I have on top of a bureau, the other one I keep in their boxes on a shelf in my "boudoir". Decants I keep in different wooden boxes with small glasses to make them stand up. Still I manage to have samples all over the place! I never seem to get them organized in the phase they´re coming. :PAnd what to do with all the boxes??? I love keeping them, cause when I re organize my collection I want to store the fragrances in their boxes and if i swap or sell the perfume is worth more if the box is still in good shape, but I don´t know what to do with them meanwhile? How do you do with the boxes?

Rebella 14.01.2012 | Miscellaneous
...PontNeuf:Rebella:I hope my next buy will be Caron´s Tabac Blond. :)Oh, I always wanted to try this one...is it only available at Caron or is it even out of production ? It seems to be extremely hard to get.I think you can buy it from Les Senteurs.

Favorite notes
Rebella 10.01.2012 | Miscellaneous
...Some years ago I thought I had favorite notes as well as notes I didn´t like at all. I still have notes that most of the times works very, very well with my skin chemistry and over all preferences as well as notes that seldom work well at me. But the best thing I know when trying a new fragrance these days is when I find myself attracted to a note (or notes) that I haven´t liked before. I´m sure if done right I can find myself liking most ntes, with few exceptions (metallic notes leaning towards rusty/bloody note is for me like instant anxiety in a bottle and only makes me all sweaty and sick). What usually works great on me: amber, vanilla, patchouli, suede, citrus, tuebrose, iris(orris), immortelle, eucalyptus, musk, labdanum, gaiac, safron, cinnamon, cardamom, heliotrope, honey, lavender, milky notes and a lot of others I don´t recall now. Usually not so good: metallic notes, ozone, berries, galbanum, incense (some at least smells like coke on me), general "green" notes, birchtar (can become like smoked sausages on me)...
