I know there are a few of us on BT that are fragrance addicts, so I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated place where we can share our thoughts.   This is not to take away from the lovely What Are You Wearing Today, Fragrance Edition thread, but more a place to post longer reviews, chat about new brands or releases, and just shoot the breeze on anything good and smelly   For me, I recently acquired 2 new decants that I've been anxiously awaiting.  Ever since Lachaton mentioned that MMM was releasing a new scent called  By The Fireplace  I've been itching to get my hands on it.  My decant arrived yesterday, so I'm looking forward to marinating in it this weekend.  Secondly, I recently picked up a tiny sample of Shiseido Nombre Noir.  Apparently it is one of the most expensive failures in perfume history - made by Serge Lutens for Shiseido back in the 80s.  Of course, with a backstory like that, I was dying to get a sniff   What's new on your scent radar?  Do tell!

I've searched high and low and haven't found a dedicated Jo Malone thread, but knowing how many of us enjoy JM products I though it'd be nice to have a place where we can share upcoming news and our favorites.   My all time favorite is Blue Agava and Cacao, followed by Peony Blush Suede. I just picked up Basil and Neroli, which to my nose is a dead ringer for Bobbi Brown Beach! As I love Beach, I think this fragrance is going to be a new fave come the spring. It is different enough from Lime, Basil, Neroli to justify owning both in my collection. Basil and Neroli emphasizes the Neroli while LBM is heavy on the basil and lime, which give it a more herbal edge.

I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we can post our impressions of fragrances we're testing   I finally had a chance to test three of the new Maison Margiela Replicas on my skin! They’re definitely more “niche” and more abstract/challenging than the rest of the Replica line.   Across Sands – Sweet, rich and warm but not overly so. I smelled some oud when I tested this on paper but it was very weak on my skin such that I question if I'm just imagining it. I'd hardly describe it as "daring" or "heady"; actually, I found it comforting more than anything else. The scent of sweet dried dates really comes through. About 15 minutes, there's an almost burnt darkness to it and then it just... deflates. Died down to a skin scent within the hour whereas most perfumes last hours for me.   Soul of the Forest – a wet, resinous, coniferous green that is easily wearable. The opening was fresh, but also a little sour which I found interesting. The incense is very faint. The dry down, by the way, is very rapid . Like Across Sands, it became a skin scent within the hour. Very weak projection.   Dancing on the Moon – the most challenging of the four. To be honest, I was surprized the house went with something that is clearly not going to be a crowd pleaser. This has an intensely indolic white floral character - there’s definitely a faint mothball note for me. It’s also a little powdery; I'm guessing that's the minerality. Much better performance than the other two.   Overall, these were better than I'd anticipated, but they still seemed a little thin/flat to me. Especially AS and SOTF, it's like they just... collapse. If you're looking for niche that's boundary pushing, I'd say try Etat Libre d'Orange which is around the same price point, is more creative and more "filled out."

I'd love to hear what your favourite fragrances are for the fall! Here's a list of what I've been turning to this season:   Papillon's Anubis - intensely smoky and rich oriental with a resinous incense base   Etat Libre d'Orange's Fat Electrician - unexpectedly bitter and smoky vetiver that's balanced with a creamy vanilla   Nasomatto's Black Afgano - burning rubbery, plasticky oud (? the company doesn't list the notes), challenging at first but the dry down is amazing   Tom Ford's Oud Wood - a wearable oud, suitable for all occasions   Ex Idolo's 33 - A rich rose-oud with a metallic, citrus edge

Did anyone else's pillowtalk poet come expired in the Pinrose 10 rollerball collection? It smelles like pure alcohol.

I'm one of those gals that are obsessed with fragrances and have about around 50 60 70 80 and still collecting...(if you want to call it that.) So I would like to know what are you wearing today?   I'm wearing Obsession...(hahaha kinda fits this thread, doesn't it? )
Fragrance
If you try both of these, which one would you consider more   1. Marc Jacob's Decadence   2. YSL Mon Paris   3. Roses - Chloe   4. Love Story- Chloe   5. Flowerbomb   They are all sweet and lovely scent but which do you pick?    
Fragrance
I am wondering that will Sephora sale Nuit de cellophane of Serge Lutens fragrances?
Fragrance
Do you ever try to match your fragrances to your outfits or makeup? Some combos I love to wear:   Etat Libre d'Orange's Like This: A cropped, ultra fuzzy orange mohair sweater and high waisted grey pants with flats. A short, matte manicure. Subtle orange lip and neutral/bronzey eyes. Sock bun.   Nasomatto's Absinthe: a slinky cowl neck deconstructionist top (Maison Martin Margiela) with crisp white shorts and fun heels. Graphic eyeliner and a slash of bright lipstick. Hair straight as a pin. (What's funny is that I would never wear any Replica frags with anything MMM as I don't think they match at all!)   Frederic Malle's Une Fleur de Cassie: a beautifully draping black dress or something ultra-femme. Pretty garters and silk stockings with a back seam. Gold jewelry. Maybe a vintage fur stole. Smoky gold eyes. Hair down, soft waves.   Honestly, I could do this all day...

I have been using this perfume for years; just wanted to try something different but is in the same category (similar notes) Any suggestions? Most perfumes are too pungent or their fragrance leaves my skin in half an hour.

I'm sponsoring a family this holiday season through a local nonprofit and am having trouble with a fragrance request. I know Victoria's Secret discontinued the Dream Angels Divine scent several years ago. Can somebody point me to a fragrance that would smell similar? If Sephora sells a rollerball of said fragrance that would be awesome. For reference, the notes are cyclamen, sandalwood, amber, musk, and jasmine. I'm having a particularly hard time imagining the fragrance right now as someone in my office is eating fried chicken.

I need some suggestions of sweet  and or warm floral or fruity floral scents. List me some of your favorites

My mom's favorite perfume is Chanel No 5, but she hasn't had any for a while, so I'm planning on getting her a bottle for Christmas. She wants the "biggest, most economical" bottle available. So should I get the parfum, the eau de parfum, or the eau de toilette, and in what size? Does a bottle of parfum really last long enough to be worth the extra price?
Fragrance
I really love the scent of the Dolce by Dolce&Gabanna but I find that the scent wears off rather quickly. Is there a scent that is similar to it with long staying power?    Thank you!
Fragrance
Loved Kate Walsh boyfriend fragrance and miss it so much.  I remember a Tokyo Milk fragrance smelling similar but can not remember the name of it.  Any suggestions?

I'm looking for a fragrance for my mother. She likes warm & floral scents. Her absolute  favourite is the Chanel no. 5 as a reference. She also likes Prada Candy Florale. I'm looking for a scent that she'll like but is also new to her.

From Marc Jacob's collection on perfume, which one's do you think smell very sweet?     From Dior's perfume, which one's do you think smell sweet?
Women
I liked the smell of Flowerbomb since I can smell it easily. But I want to know other perfume that is also similar to that smell and heavy since Flowerbomb was a heavy smell to me. Any suggestions?
Fragrance
Does anyone know if Maison Margiela REPLICA By The Fireplace will be available as a travel size / rollerball / spray? I know it is one of the three travel sprays in the Masculine Discovery Set, but I'm hoping it will become available as a travel size on its own.
Fragrance
From what I've read on multiple internet sites, Kate Spade's Twirl may have used the following: orange blossom, tiare, watermelon, blackberry, French macaroon, star jasmine, musk, magnolia, and red current.   Thank you!
