Prada's Infusion d'Iris O de Lancôme ( the original) Bvlgari: Pour Femme, Eau parfumée au thé vert, Omnia ( the original) and maybe the Crystalline ( which is really nice for summer) Another quite nice crisp fragrance is Moschino Funny. Widely available in department stores in Europe but...

I wore a lot of great, big leathers 25-30 years ago and I seem to be coming back full circle. Disappointments of the week: -YVES Saint Laurent (capitalized in protest of the dropping of the first name) pour Homme Haute Concentration. In a word: Yuck! Not for me. Too sweaty and moldy. -Terre...

Fortunately for me, most of my vintage favorites (especially Lanvin Arpege and My Sin) were really popular and common in their heyday, so they are not hard to find at a reasonable price. One of my favorite perfume notes is civet, which has been in disuse for some time – except for a few niche...

Our usual open thread routine: talk about anything you like — the perfume you're wearing today, the perfume you almost wore but didn't, whatever. Or, ask a question about fragrance, then see if anyone else has asked a question that you can answer... Note: image is The grevillea is...
