There's just one rule I try to live by – if you're going to give your perfume a name that's a little edge, then make what's inside edgy or at least interesting. The Pink room's Darkly Audacious is a perfectly fine florgourchouli with notes of lemon, bergamot, and rosewood; heart notes of...

Okay! On to perfume. Folks are always surprised that I love soft Spring scents. Hey, knife-wielding psychos can like The Pretty, too, y'know. Now that I can smell iris I am falling head over heels with all sorts of variations on the theme, from chilly 28 La Pausa to the rooty-carroty...

So no perfume review for this week. I will review the gel: very effective in delivering heat with a "nice clean" smell that's an eye-watering eucalyptus. But as I mentioned, I can stand upright and use the clutch on the car without whimpering. I hope by the weekend to be back in the...

I went to a Perfume Only state, blissfully spritzing on a bare canvas. Until recently. It started about 2 years ago – Lovely Nancy, who introduced me to my Summer fave, Agraria Bitter Orange, sent along a little sample of the shower gel. Bliss. There's something about surrounding yourself...

Everyone ready? I'm sending perfumed hugs out to all of you lovely Posse peeps. In lieu of a perfume-centric post, I'm going with something (nearly) equally dear to my heart — lipstick. I don't wear much makeup these day, except for special occasions, but I do love a great lipstick,...

" descended over me, along with the gobsmacking beauty of the perfume, of course. The ever-patient Lydia. le sigh. How she keeps from just slapping me is a mystery. This Is Perfume. Old School Perfume. Nicknamed 'The Plum" by Roudnistka's circle of perfume pros, it is comprised of many...

The repeating perfume bottle problem should be fixed. I uploaded it, it wouldn't show up in Firefox, so I thought I screwed it up. Had no idea another browser was displaying it. IE should be showing the correct format now, it didn't like flexible page width. Who knew?!?!? Chrome seems to be...

Old habits die hard, dontcha know? So share with us what you did to ring in the new year, what scent you wore, what you plan to buy in the new year, your perfume resolutions, or anything else that tickles your fancy. And from all of us here at the Posse, thanks for being such great...

Perfume Posse and I are not responsible or liable. Patty wrote this in a post this week, I'm pasting it here: "The best rule I have, make sure the entire swap is complete and both parties say they are happy before you open and start using. If you swap for a fragrance and for some reason the

By this, I do not mean "perfume etiquette" – e.g., whether it's polite to offgas Dior Poison at the opera, although frankly I find people slowly unwrapping cough drops and hard candies far more annoying in that situation (crinkle crinkle criiinklle). No, I'm talking about the myriad ways...
