Post in Perfume Posse

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!



Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Thanks, @Mochapj! I appreciate hearing your thoughts. I am also sad that I can't pick up more on the coffee or barley notes.


Your husband's response is so sweet! Glad he likes it on you Smiley Happy 

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@lachaton thanks! Smiley Happy


I was organizing my vanity last night and came across something you might like if you're looking for coffee notes - have you ever tried Atelier's Cafe Tuberosa? I was gifted a small bottle last summer and tried it then but misplaced it - I sprayed myself with it again this morning and it is most definitely a coffee and spiced gourmand, with the twist of some haunting white florals.


If you end up trying it, do let me know what you think? 

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@Mochapj No, I haven't tried it yet. I haven't been impressed with AC's offerings lately, so I had skipped it. But that does sound like the type of scent I would like! I'll have to pop in to my local store to test it soon. Thank you!

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

I contacted Mugler about our Aura samples... Here's the answer:


"Due to high volume of request for our Aura samples, there has been a delay. We are currently waiting for France to send us more samples so we may send those out to our remaining customers towards the beginning of February."

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

There's an Aura sample in Sephora's Vday fragrance deal if you can't wait Smiley Happy


Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@pocketvenus Is that the Canadian version?

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central


Yes, it is Canadian! I assumed it would be the same for US, but I see the US site has different samples Smiley Surprised



Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Thanks, @pocketvenus  !

I don't think I care for anything else except Aura there, so... I can wait. 

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Thanks so much for the update @lyravega!!!  hahahaha awesome plan @pixiedust2!!!

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@veronika23 i think Aura is one of the scents in the current perfume vial promo, just FYI

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Thanks @Mochapj Smiley Happy I saw it but not sure if I want that promo... I can wait Smiley Very Happy

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

@lyravega You’re the best 😘 If they don’t get here by March, I’m stealing a bunch in Paris and bringing them back for all of us 😂

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

I had no idea Kim Kardashian made fragrances - three more are being released in Feb. No clue what the notes are but the packaging is fun.


Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Looks like TF has a new flanker:

Eau de Soleil Blanc embodies a refreshing illumination on Private Blend Soleil Blanc, bright, crisp and drenched with sparkling citrus. The vibrant twist on the floral amber warmth mirrors the crystalline reflection of the white sun, a sensuous gleam of sky on water.

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Ooh I want to try this!  Soleil Blanc is too much coconut for my preferences


Edit:  according to Fragrantica, there is no coconut or pistachio in this flanker  If its a generic citrusy floral I'll be a little disappointed :/  Seems weird to call this a Soleil Blanc flanker when the main note is missing?
