Blind Buys - Are you a risk taker? Best + Worst Experiences

...For me it is not necessarily an urge to blind buy but a "necessity" when one can not test the perfumes. Many perfumes I am interested in are not in perfume shops, yes I could order samples, but when in the EU it is annoying with all the regulations and extra taxes and not all online sellers ship to here... So, I actually bought many bottles blind.

Leather chypres

..."Trussardi Donna (1982) / Trussardi White" as others have already mentioned is a great leather chypre. It is not butch and the leather joins in with the oakmoss, really refreshing.

Scent of the Day

...Memoria by Tony Moly (South Korean cosmetic company),seems to be a dupe of J'adore by Dior.I definitely get bergamot, pear and a bit of melon at the start.I can not post a pic, but here is the Vietnamese website, where it is still available. It is discontinued in South Korea.

Jeanne Arthes Perfumes...

...I also like "Guipure & Silk". "Patchouli Sumatra" is good too, as is "Love Generation Rock" which smells like Givenchy's Ange ou Demon.I don't care for "Love Generation Arts", it is like Lady Million.

11 Iconic Perfumes of the 80s

...As a European I was/am not that acquainted with (all) US (teenage) fragrances, but I definitely remember Opium. I bought a bottle of Poison at a big department store off the Champs Elysées in Paris when it came out. I did not know Giorgio, Baby Soft or any of the imposters then. I would like to add Loulou by Cacharel, another big white floral - it just seemed to fit our lifestyle then (still love it now). At that time I went through several bottles of Woman III by Jil Sander, another love. This has been taken from the market to be re-released (50ml bottle for the price of the former 100ml...the original goes for ridiculous prices on ebay). Otherwise I remember Ferré (original) and Byblos, both much more sweeter.

Which masculine scents can be worn by a woman?

...Today I was wearing Basile uomo by Basile and I liked it very much. I think women can wear men's colognes very well in most cases. I like them for business and outdoors or for when things have to get done. So, in a certain sense they seem to underline masculine qualities, but you can also say that about certain feminine chypres; and I don't think it's running away from the own gender identity, it might just enforce an aspect of our own personality.I also have Aramis and the last time I noticed a bit of sweet in the heart notes, it seemed to be nearly better wearable than Cabochard. However there are some I don't like on myself, the fougère type maybe?
