Fragrance Junkie Central

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 Smiley Happy

 

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.  Supposedly 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 Smiley Very Happy

 

What's new on your scent radar?  Do tell!

@pocketvenus  I must say I love a good rubarb note and I like this one a lot! 

Re: I ordered the vanilla and rubarb and they should be arriv...

@ChristalMsprayed the tester and I see what you mean about a rhubarb note. It's abstract with a nice hint of tartness Smiley Happy So difficult to find rhubarb at the forefront, the only one I can think of is the Hermes. 

 

HERMÈS - Eau de rhubarbe écarlate Eau de Cologne

 

If you like rhubarb definitely give it a try! I can't speak to the drydown but the opening is nice.

Re: I ordered the vanilla and rubarb and they should be arriv...

I love it. I also love rhubarb. This was my all time favorite rhubarb fragrance. of course discotinued...

Thx @ChristalM Heart

Re: I ordered the vanilla and rubarb and they should be arriv...

@pocketvenus my mini review:

 

I would say both vanilla and rhubarb are fairly simple and not particularly complex scents. I don;t notice and note change as the fragrance develops but I must say they are both particularly pleasant.

 

The vanilla has something unexpected in it that gives it a nice twist. The Rubarb is bright and sunny and very nice too.

 

They have  decent lasting time.

Hedi Slimane of Celine will be releasing a line of 11 fragrances. Their description is hilarious. A puff of perfume ha ha!

 

androgynous and versatile for both day and night. Each puff of perfume serves sophisticated grandeur through an enveloping cloud that mixes the brand's modern luxury with Slimane’s signature touch, and of course, the scent comes in an exquisitely sleek bottle to match

LV has a new release for the fall, Cœur Battant.

C%C5%92UR-BATTANT_JPEG

 

Anyone who has bitten into a delicious, juicy pear will recognise that frisson of voluptuousness that runs right through the body. This is why Jacques Cavallier Belletrud chose a note of cool, crisp pear as his perfume’s preface, which is elegantly prolonged by ambrette seed that leads it toward the horizon. And then, suddenly, a magical molecule, Cascalone, projects the pear into a cascade of freshness on the skin…Cœur Battant honours Egyptian jasmine, the living soul of perfume, a sensual, radiant flower whose freshness he manages, miraculously, to preserve endlessly. Jasmine’s humid note becomes even richer with the appearance of narcissus, a wildflower with green and animalistic facets.

A chypré base of pure patchouli and moss elegantly illuminates the perfume’s generous floral heart, revealing other animal facets that don’t necessarily offer themselves up freely at first encounter.

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

I don’t like any of the new couture bottles. They lack imagination. Every house uses these blobs and charges a fortune. Moss and patchouli sounds like something I would enjoy. Can you think of any designer that has a nice moss scent that last?

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Can't wait to smell these new ones this weekend!

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Tabac sounds like the perfect scent for me. I suffer from female napoleons syndrome so I like my fragrances big.

I love the note of tobacco in fragrance too, hope you get...

I love the note of tobacco in fragrance too, hope you get to sample TABAC and let us know your thoughts!

RE: Fragrance Junkie Central

One of the TF trademarks I found a few months back has surfaced and is apparently a fragrance

Re: RE: Fragrance Junkie Central

@MochapjI read an article from the globalcosmeticnews website that this will launch in the fall, maybe to coincide with the opening of an Alibaba Tmall store. I also read on the Basenotes that this will be launched exclusively in China but could not confirm this with a news site.

 

As for notes, I couldn't find any, but joshsmellslike on IG says, it’s quite good! I couldn’t place it at first but it reminded me of Chanel. After some time with it I think it’s reminding me of No. 18 because I THINK I detect ambrette and iris. I also think there might be a little leather, almost like a lighter Dior Homme Parfum. There’s also a nice berry in there of some sort I think.

Re: RE: Fragrance Junkie Central

Glad to know it’s light, so I don’t feel like I’m missing out. This sounds more like a spring floral.

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

I can only find French ad copy for Rolling in Love, which is now available for pre-order at Holt Renfrew.

 

It’s billed as monochromatic layers of white and a departure from the house. It smells very Kilian-like to me, one of the richer ones like Good Girl Gone Bad. I'll write my thoughts in the Challenge thread. Notes are: ambrette, almond milk, tuberose, iris, musk, vanilla, tonka
