And the dry wood? On its own perfume merits, I barely noticed it. However, when paired with the Epic lotion, it really sings – in fact, I like the combo better than an all-Epic menu. The orris and frankincense (and maybe just a touch of the sandalwood) boost the base notes of Opus V and...

Everything about this perfume translates, for me, into 'mouthfeel'. Carol uses the term 'mouthwatering'....and she's absolutely right. If I didn't already adore her, I would hate her guts. Her evocative review caused a lemming so intense it made my gums ache! So I schemed and scrabbed and am...

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...

The things you learn on the Posse! I forgot to get the persack prices for these three but Malle candles run from $80 – $140 so fall in love accordingly. When I have this sort of Discretionary Simoleanism again I will probably indulge in this line – they are on par with other niche candle...

If I weren't so hefty I would spritz this with abandon (it's an etd but there's also a cologne aqueous as well as more concentrated perfume oil strengths). Then I'd don one of my corsets, put on some stilettos and go terrify that HAWT man up there. (btw – he's now way, WAY hotter than 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,...

A Tale of Beginner's Mind by Musette Every now and then I'll meet someone who admits to lurking on the Posse but won't comment, afraid that they don't know enough, thinking I , The Great Musette, am so knowledgeable about perfume. (wait. the Earth just shifted off its axis from the Posse's...

your perfume is very nice!" huh? 11:30am...I'm at the antique store/egg & produce shop/drycleaners. The guy next to me at the counter, picking up his shirts, sniffs and says "your perfume is nice! what is it?" What is it? Wth? This is a very conservative farm town. Men barely talk to women...

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

Notes are: galbanum, China mint, lavender, geranium, jasmine, moss, amber, spruce, cedar, tobacco, benzoin, labdanum D0 you guys have a line (or a perfume) that irritates you because it's Reeeeeally Close – But Not. Quite. There? Also: Gird your Virtual Loins: Swapmania! Coming to a...
