...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:
...MiaTrost:Sherapop:Here's a link to my manifesto on this topic: PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES DO NOT WEAR PERFUMEMost likely they know better. The EU's argument is, however, not only the 1-3 % of overall population that actually react allergically need to be protected but also any others that might develop an allergic reaction. Apparently consumers can not be trusted with self-determined actions. :evil:Only this morning I received a comment on that post which appears to have been written by an IFRA shill! :shock:
...Sweetgrass:Sherapop, some really good points, especially on BHT! Are there any sources aside of Wikipedia on it? Any theories as to why it's pushed?Sorry Sweetgrasss, I don't have any more info on the topic. I assume that "the powers that be" in the fragrance industry have decided to throw a dollop of BHT into everything. All of the perfumes produced by both Coty Prestige and by LVMH now list BHT among their ingredients when the same houses (Guerlain, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Acqua di Parma, the list goes on and on...) did not formerly. Others (independents, but also some others...) still do not. I steer clear of both of those conglomerates for aesthetic reasons, but the BHT remains an unsolved mystery for me at this point... :x
...Sweetgrass:Sherapop:Looking at my windowsill this afternoon, I realized that the reason why these four bottles are completely drained is because I can wear them anytime and spray on with reckless abandon--they are all feel-good perfumes for me:Oh dear I forgot Féerie! I have the edp, which is gorgeous. Just curious, is there any difference between the edt and edp or are they just that, different concentrations?Hello, Sweetgrass!I have both the edp and the edt, which are very different. The edp is too sweet for me, but the edt works well. :wink:

...Cryptic:Rouj:As of now, it's the only house that I want the vast majority of it's offerings. Certainly some disappointments, but no ones perfect. The cost sucks, but there are deals to be had if I'm patient.I share your opinion and feel your pain. I can tell you that if you buy from Fragrance.net they will stalk your visits and send you emails notifying you of sales on perfumes you check out on their site. I've saved a bundle off MiN prices on Amouage this way.Here's a handy fragrancenet.com tip: if you visit there in an incognito window (or from any computer new to them--meaning from which you've never placed an order), then a 20% promo pops up in a dialogue window. Just fill in your email address, and they send it to you. So, in effect, it's a 20% off perma-code. :wink:
