Oooh which ones have you gone for??

FloraMacDonald Wed 13-May-20 13:18:44

Timeless edt - classic florals with amber, jasmine & musk
Imari edt - Italian lemon, jasmine & vanilla
Imari Fantasy edt - Jasmine sambac, caramelised hazelnut and cashemere wood
Herstory edp - Pink pepper, iris & patchouli

I thought the herstory sounded nice, and just got the others because they're so cheap. The others all sound a bit floral for me, but at that price I can spray them in my stinky runners if I don't like them. grin

You're making me laugh Yoikes x

yoikes Wed 13-May-20 13:27:04

kali seriously...if you're in a vile mood watch game of thrones! I watch and vicariously plot my revenge on all who have wronged me 😀
Heh heh ☠
flora I have timeless and imari - they are both really gorgeous...I must check out imari fantasy!

yoikes Wed 13-May-20 13:29:12

I think when this clusterfuck is over we should plan a meet up!

Perfumistas on tour! 😀❤

Could get messy....😂

PearsMorgan Wed 13-May-20 13:41:21

It might be very smelly

FloraMacDonald Wed 13-May-20 13:43:51

Definitely! I've been mapping out a trip to Les Senteurs. Or we could visit Tauer - travel will probably be cheap!

yoikes Wed 13-May-20 13:44:33

Smelly and messy!

Awesome smile

yoikes Wed 13-May-20 14:22:25

A tour of LES senteurs sounds fantastic.

Let's do it!!!

FloraMacDonald Wed 13-May-20 14:52:01

I have a code for £20 off MH, minimum spend £80 if anyone wants it? Valid until Sunday.

teta Wed 13-May-20 15:42:17

Calender post is up.
Sotd is L Artisan Parfumeur Fleur de Liane.
Like the sound of a perfumistas trip.

MrsPerks Wed 13-May-20 19:39:52

What a poignant calendar post - Teta, lovely to have a scent capturing the baby years. I have this for one child but not so much for the other.

Judystilldreamsofhorses Wed 13-May-20 21:39:35

SOTD Byredo Bibliotheque. Almost time for a new thread, which must reference that we have not lost our collective smell, or humour.

I love the personal stories, that sounds like an amazing time teta, though I'm sorry to hear it didn't stay like that. I'm a little envious of both the life experience, and the twins!

I saw earlier on facebook that Perfume Parlour is reopening at the end of the month, for those of us partial to a dupe!

PearsMorgan Thu 14-May-20 10:14:14

Lovely review Teta. I have twins and warm memories of that first year but no associated fragrance.

SOTD Serge Lutens Feminite du Bois. All I can smell is peach - another BoSho throwback!

KaliforniaDreamz Thu 14-May-20 10:24:11

Ah Teta you made me cry... x
I picture us in a swanky bar with leather booth style seats, high ceilings with an art deco vibe and a handsome waiter bringing us cocktails as we get to know one another.

SOTD Acqua di parma iris noble, still desperatel seeking not Susan but comfort.

Loving the calendar all of you x

MrsPerks Thu 14-May-20 19:19:30

Apologies - another mad day at work so the calendar will be done later this evening.

FloraMacDonald Thu 14-May-20 19:41:16

My Bloom parcel arrived today, so SOTE is Iris Cendre. Iris & tobacco - what's not to love?
I know I'm shallow, but I do like the Perfume Society packaging. Bloom is a bit more utilitarian.

yoikes Thu 14-May-20 19:58:18

flora me too smile

I'm in clean reserve sueded oud again today. Really like this.

On recommendation I've ordered Avon imari fantasy smile

Judystilldreamsofhorses Thu 14-May-20 20:34:48

SOTD Byredo Gypsy Water.

I started a new thread because this one is almost done.

Sotd is Friedemodin Jardin Mystique. A dewy floral is just right for today's flip flop weather. It's been alternately sunny & raining here.
I received my bottle of replacement Cristalle from Origines. It's perfect and was a brilliant price. It had a note on it that it was only authorised to be sold at Chanel boutiques!
Plus I've dabt in buying a vintage bottle of Faberge - a touch of class and a replacement bottle of Fleur du matin.
Someone please stop me spending . Don't know what's got into me 🤦🏼‍♀️

In the late 80s I was obsessed with a Miss Selfridge perfume... in the days of Iron Lady lippie. I wore it loads but can't remember what it's called... can anyone help?
