Which masculine scents can be worn by a woman?

I got a big bottle of this great stuff for $15 US, I think.Same is true of the Gandini scents - and Sherapop is a big fan.Estee Lauder has done a great job of keeping some of its well-loved ones around for decades with little or no reformulation, and quite...

Dead-ringer fragrances as alternative

...Omni:I am fascinated with Love Potion No 9 by Penhaligons. This fragrance pre dates Dune by a year or two and is so similar that Sherapop cannot tell the difference.Now you surprised me. It is quite interesting to me, that LP No. 9 could be similar to Dune, I always felt Penhaligon's... And I agree with that, but looking at the reviews on Fragantica there are many references to Dune. On Basenotes reviewer Darvant raises the topic. Sherapop finds them practically identical on a dry down wrist comparison. So, did Dior 'knock off' LP, invent a marketing ploy around it, and tweak it enough...

Your Perfume - How about a refill?

two arguments: perfume shelf-life and the problem of fakes
...I have often lamented that the beautiful Tocca bottles do not have screw-off tops, which would make them reusable. Here's an example: Tocca "Brigitte"They only contain 50ml, so it seems like an awful waste of a beautiful glass object. However, I understand why perfume companies are loathe to offer screw-off atomizers, and it's not just because the perfume spoils more quickly in non-sealed bottles. It's also because the problem of fakes is already way out of control. Imagine if all perfume bottles were refillable? Ebay would be literally awash with fakes! :?

...Sorceress:Seems ridiculous that Parfumo cannot use their name. In a way , it's free advertising for them on your site. Now, no one knows what it is if they happened upon it. It's really their loss. And it's a shame that Parfumo will have to pay out money for this, too.This is just crazy. They get free advertising and increased web presence from Parfumo! What company doesn't want that???? :shock:

Tragedy. When perfumes turn

...Hayven:I follow that trick too with one of my Miss Dior Cherie bottles. The first two sprays are sour, but then the ones after that are fine.I've noticed this too with some of my "now vintage" perfumes (because I acquired them before reformulation). Better to spray into the air before applying if the bottle is older...

Whose Oud is missing?

...Sorceress:Recently I picked up "Les Notes de Lanvin - Oud & Rose" locally. I have absolutely no idea what "oud" is supposed to smell like, other than what I have read, nor have I ever owned an perfume with oud as a note listed. I have been hesitant to purchase any, since there are varying opinions, costs, etc., and not knowing if I would like it. But when I saw this one sitting on the shelf at (dare I say it?) my local Marshall's for a ridiculous price I bought it. What I get from it is a sense of being in a garage, an oil feel, as if I'm standing next to a mechanic who's been working all day under cars. I feel as if I should wear this hanging out with my biker friends. It's not overpowering, it's well-blended.Since this the posters here seem to significantly know of "oud" scents, has anyone else smelled this particular one? And is this what "oud" smells like?Well, Lanvin has clearly fallen from grace, and now they've jumped on the "oud bandwagon", too! However, I must say that your description of the mystery note matches my limited experience with true oud. I find it rather unpleasant. :?
