I sold off most of my perfume collection this winter, partly because I needed the dough and partly because at some point I'm going to have to move, and I wasn't packing several hundred bottles of perfume. It was a little sad, and also very liberating. What stage of perfumista am I now? The...

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...

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...

And for a lot of perfumistas it's a cryin' shame – but ...I mean, really – can you imagine the average 22 yr old wearing the original Shalimar? Neither can I. Have any of you sniffed this yet? I'd love to hear from Shalimar haters as well as lovers as well as those in-between. What are your...

" 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...

Patty's still swanning around Costa Rica, so today Musette and March are doing a joint "she said/she said" post about D'Orsay Etiquette Bleue. One of the conundrums in perfumista-ville is whether a classic "cologne" which might last 92 seconds on the skin (hey, it's designed that way) is...

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

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,...
