  2. My latest scent discovery: Jour d'Hermes, I shouldn't love it but I do, and it keeps on changing every time I wear it. Yesterday, it smelled downright tropical on me.

    ReplyDelete
  3. My latest (and one of the greatest) discoveries has been Etat Libre D'Orange - Tom of Finland.
    I get a bunch on compliments and I feel pretty sexy wearing it.

  4. My latest discovery has been Odin Fragrances, in particular their latest release "Seylon". Glooorious vetiver!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  6. My latest discovery is YSL Baby doll, I had a tiny one in my drawer for a while, and never used it until a friend of mine mentioned it is great.

  7. I'm newly in love with A Lab On Fire's What We do in Paris is Secret. I can't get enough of it. Also Malabah by Penhalion. I put it on before bed.

  8. I'm traveling right now and had a sample of Chanel Beige with me. Just very easy and appropriate any time. It's really quite nice.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Thanks for the giveaway! My latest love is Jour d'Hermes. I have used up several samples and bought myself a bottle the other day! Lucky me!

  10. I recently discovered Tabac Blond extrait. Everyone complains the new stuff isn't as good, but I like it quite a lot. Caron has not mangled everything in their reformulations.

    Long time lurker, first time commenter! The lure of a giveaway is too powerful to ignore. I've recently discovered Neela Vermeire, and committed part of the spring bonus money to a full bottle of Trayee. I've also been enjoying Musc Bleu as the weather warms up here in the lower Midwest USA.

    all of a sudden Esprit d'Oscar became really cheap in Holland. So I took a sniff and fell in love - what a beauteous scent that is - rich and elegant and exuding savoir-vivre. 'Very Oscar' I suppose. Now imagine I would win the goody-bag ;-) I would be over the moon...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Tom Ford Noir, seems to be marketed to men, but I couldn't care less! cherish my sample.

    On the other hand, the latest YSL, violet something, I had to run home to scrub, ugh!

  18. I rediscovered Kenzo Jungle this winter and fell in love all over again. I disliked (massive distaste that is) Vanille Incensee by AC. I tried it at Sephora and it was a big mistake for me and my skin :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. I discovered Vera Wang "bejewled". Also, D&G "The One" & "L'eau The One". I need to put myself on a no-buy for awhile!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh yes! A giveaway! <3

    I've received a lot of samples from friends all over the world recently, but the latest package was from another giveaway actually... I recieved a small bottle of spikenard diluted in sweet almond oil and it just smells so divine! I love spikenard!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Eleni20:32

    My latest love is Osmanthus Interdite by Parfums d'Empire. I have a generous sample and it keeps growing on me. I love how it opens delicately and then a dark undercurrents shows up. FB material, methinks!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  22. New discovery: Vintage Krasnaya Moskva (Red Moscow). As I was carefully removing the "onion skin" paper and thread I was greeted by the most intense, spicy floral! On skin its strong and beautiful! Love the part where it smells like Sat Sai Baba NagChampa incense.. with a hint of Oscar!
    Rediscovery: vintage Shalimar. Hadn't worn in a long time. Can't figure out why I did that!?
    Dislike: Sickly sweet, totally boring and forgettable fragrances too numerous to mention. (Why are there so many of them?)

    ReplyDelete
  23. how great!
    recently i found out i can not longer find to purchase Armani white for men, except for ebay. A great fragrance from 2001, a "summer night club" feel. Sadly it's discontinued. I wish Armani relaunches it.
    Is that a rediscovery?

    Our local perfumery has a variety of single note scents. I've never found a perfume with peach that I like but I LOVE the single note peach scent. Sometimes it is nice have something simple and pretty to add into the mix.

    Thanks for the generous draw opportunity:-)

    Latest scented discovery: Gap's "Night Fall Bath Oil" puts me in mind of an old Lush scent but, having just used it tonight, I'm jiggered if I can put a name to the Lush scent! (If anyone knows what I'm thinking of, please put me straight so I can spare the little grey cells the strain that is otherwise coming.)

    Latest scented rediscovery: how much I love the scent of Annick Goutal's "Musc Nomade" body cream.

    cheerio, Anna in Edinburgh

  28. Fell in love with three scents:

    - Mancera - Roses Vanille (about Mancera I like the authencity of the arabian touch and the value for money ratio)
    - Sooud - Nur (great scent but the durability is very low)
    - Clive Christian - V (deep and luxurious and of course expensive)

    ReplyDelete
  29. My latest scent discovery is Gucci Accenti. I had tried it when I was first getting into perfumes and was not impressed, but lately I tried it again and am really having fun with it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. My latest discovery is that I don't hate rose when it's part of Serge Luten's Santal Majuscule- which I love. What a revelation! I was prepared to hate rose notes (not the actual flower) for the rest of my life but it looks like I'll have to revise that prejudice. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Viktor + Rolf's Spicebomb for me. It took me a few days to warm up to on the scent strip, but I am quite fond of it now. Treated myself to a full bottle for my birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  32. My latest dis like is Marni, too rosey, cloying...

  33. Creed Silver Mountain Water Perfume Oil - Rare

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just tried Jimmy Choo recently. I'm not crazy about it and will not be buying more.

  35. Miss K03:01

    My latest discovery is Lumiere Blanche and the rest of the Olfactive Studio line. A bottle of Lumiere will be on its way to me soon

    ReplyDelete
  36. My latest discoveries are Sycomore & Bois des Iles. I like both of them, but longevity is a problem. Sycomore lasts about 45 minutes. Bois des Iles lasts longer, but not long enough to suit me. Also, a generous perfume blogger sent me some vintage La Rose Jacqueminot and I then had fun comparing that against three strengths of vintage Chypre. During this exercise, I discovered the commonalities shared by the two fragrances. Too bad Coty doesn't honor its past with good quality perfume anymore.

    Latest discovery is Gothic II by Loree Rodkin. Love that nag champa smell! So on the fb list..
    Rediscovery is Rumba. Was by Balenciaga now by Ted Lapidus. Wouldn't mind re-sniffing the original.
    Latest dislike. Hmm..so many..didn't think much of the new Balenciaga rose flanker, I quite liked the first two.

  38. My most recent re-discovery is Eau d'Hermes. I found an inexpensive bottle on eBay and bought it on instinct--I hadn't smelled it in years. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised by its smoothe rich character. So much is made of its skanky, animalic character, but I find it quite wearable. Perhaps that, in part, is because I am not a middle-aged man who wears contrast collar shirts (as Luca Turin warns against)!
    Thank you for the draw!

    Latest discovery which has been around a while but is new to me- Anne Pliska!
    Received a sample from who knows where and I blew through in just a couple of days and a FB is on its way to me as we speak :) gorgeous scent at a great price point. I initially wanted the extrait but cannot find it anywhere so will be happy to receive the EDP which will arrive tomorrow!

    hi, thank you for the draw! My latest discovery is By Kilian's Back to Black - such a heady, delicious mix of honey and tobacco! Recently discovered dislikes - Juliet Has a Gun Lady Vengeance ... the rose doesn't agree with me, I think

    ReplyDelete
  45. I recent discovered two new fragrances:
    - Chloe EDP: I still don't know if it can be my signature fragrance: sometimes I like it the most, sometimes I just can't think about it.
    - Basier Vole, Cartier: very fresh, but it's not for me.

    Recent rediscovery: Jean Paul Gaultier Classique

    Dislike: Lady Gaga Fame EDP

  46. I'm also working my way through the Kilian line. I'm shocked to discover that I quite like the plums.

  47. Latest re-discovery: Prada Candy. It's not exactly old, but I'm surprised by how often I go back to it. I've been savoring my sample vial and may need to buy a full bottle when it runs out!

  48. My recent discoveries:

    Sadly, it's not a perfume - went into the city for the first time in ages, mostly living on the outer edge of he suburbs & having been even further out for holiday - goodness the place is dusty & stuffy & one can feel the crap entering one's system.

    Whereas being out in the country is always cleansing - especially when we went for a walk in a fern gully, all damp & muddy amongst the tree ferns & giant gums...

  63. my latest discovery is "jour d'Hermes" but it's only "like" not love..
    thanks a lot for the draw and for making it international

    ReplyDelete
  64. Dislike: Bal á Versaillles reform. edt Sharp and pungent and dries down to a powdery mess. So unlike the vintage edp, which is rich, exotic and sexy.

    Dislike: Rose 31. How can you call it by that name when theres no rose in sight? Not even a trace or rose to be smelled. A more appropriate name would have been Spicebomb or Spice 31.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have a stash of Aramis original deo's (glass bottle pump spray)and started using them again. Quite like it again and find it has a very feint resemblance to CD Eau Savage.

    My recent discovery was Diptyque's Eau de Lierre. So crisp, so fresh, so summery! Wearing it in today's 28oC it's like being on vacation!
    Recent rediscovery - Gucci 3, vintage, parfum extrait. So earthy and green on my skin that I'm stil dreaming on vacation.
    Dislike -all these new sweet-fruity-floral-gourmand perfumes like FlowerBomb which reminds me La vie est Belle which reminds me Jimmy Choo which reminds me Prada Candy which reminds me....

    I was quite disappointed by Hermes Jour d'Hermes. I usually like their fragrances, but this was not my jam at all.

    For spring, I've been wearing Hermes Un Jardin Sur le Nil (see, I told you I do like Hermes) and Chanel No. 19.

    But I am vaguely bored with my scents lately and would love to wear something with a really fresh, crisp rose note.

    Happy Friday!

    My latest Find is Chanel's Beige. Yes, I know, I'm a late bloomer, but I don't like most Chanels, so I waited. This is special juice, though. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm just getting back into scent after wearing it for years, and I'm having a lot of fun exploring the "noses" behind a scent that currently intrigues me. Right now, it's Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker. After reading The Perfect Scent, I had to go smell it, and I was floored. It continues to unfold each time I wear it, like a Pandora's box of pleasure! This is one instance where "celebrity scent" is not a pejorative. Thanks for the giveaway!

  84. SisterSpecies15:34

    After years of hating it I've finally come around to understanding Bvlgari Black. It used to smell so industrial to me, but now, I can't seem to get enough of it. How lovely to fall in love with something that's actually entirely affordable. Spraying with abandon- Thanks for the draw!

  86. Mary P.15:47

    My latest rediscovery has been vintage fragrances, and a big surprise love was Uninhibited by Cher. I wasn't expecting much but it turned out to be wonderful on me.

    The biggest disappointment was Fleurs de Rocaille by Caron. I wanted to love this, and the florals are really nice, but on me it's like a beautiful floral bouquet in a vase full of cat pee. It was really, really unpleasant and the only fragrance I've ever had to scrub off.... or try to scrub off anyway.

    My most precious find has been a lovely little bit of Coty Chypre which I will cherish and horde and use very, very sparingly. I love your blog which is gift enough for me, the giveaways are almost like gilding the lily, thanks so much!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. My latest discovery is that I really love rose perfumes, as long as they are complicated in some way. It started with all of Andy Tauer's roses, but especially Incense Rose and Un Rose Chypree. I've moved on to discover Lyric, Paestum Rose, Rose Oud, Rossy de Palma, and many others.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Ahhhh, Discovery: Never discount nor disgard a fragrance sample/decant/bottle you dislike as it may come back one day as a true love. My nose and tastes are constantly evolving and scents I once disliked or never appreciated have risen from the ashes as true gems. Case in point: Tabac Blond (vintage), Coromandel, Fumerie Turque (to name a few), and the Grand Dame of them all, Shalimar (vintage extrait). Hence, re-discovery and new appreciation!

    Dislikes: Coco Noir, 7-Billion Hearts, endless flankers, reformulations and IFRA regs!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Thank you for the draw! Latest purchase/obsession: Slumberhouse Norne. So much more an experience than a fragrance, and I am obsessed!

    My long time favorite is Eternity, although I like many. Growing up my mother always wore Yardley April Violets, which I love for nostalgic reasons. For a sensual effect I like older perfumes like Tita Rossi. Gorgeous bottle.

    Is anybody else reminded of Cinema when smelling Stella absolute? Is it the amber? I cannot make up my mind about Jaipur and Jaipur Saphir and am still deeply embarrassed (not!) 'cos I love L'Instant Magic. Plus, I am going on and off Grand Amour. Wonderful. However, my biggest and newest LOVE is -- and it took me a long time to fall for it and only for the perfume version did I fall at all -- bella NAHÉMA. So divine.
    Thank you for the lovely blog. Stephie

  95. Yesterday I wore Soivohle Orris Ochre, and it's a smooth, buttery lovely scent. And such an amazing price on sale now! But please leave some for me because I may end up buying more soon. I also briefly sampled her Rosa sur Reuse, which is a well-blended rose and tuberose scent. I just love Liz's work.

    I have rediscovered Calyx. Actually what got me to revisit it again was comment I read where someone mentioned it reminds people of a place they know. I think that that is such a wonderful idea. And very true. Wish I would have thought of that.

    ReplyDelete
  97. My latest discoveries are: Bombay Bling of Neeila Vermeire which I like a lot despite the fact I usually hate fruity scents...., Mon nom est rougeof Majda Bekali: I find it really amazing, I loove it! and L'heure de Nuit de Guerlain, an interesting one for the spring.
    The latest disapointing fragance is La fille de Berlin ( very boring)

  103. My latest discovery is an oldie, Chanel's Bois des Iles. I love this perfume so much and feel sad that my sample is running low... But one day hopefully I can afford it!

    I think it's fantastic that you're offering samples as it means people can experience perfumes they wouldn't otherwise be able to.

    I hope this time that person will be me! Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Latest discovery is Parfums de Nicolai's Number One. A white floral with a tart opening and a lovely (but restrained) tuberose note.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm almost embarrassed to say it is vintage Chanel #19, embarrassed because I thought I didn't like it when I was gifted this as a college student and gave it away! I absolutely can't get enough of it now. The newest discovery that is niche is SL Bois et Fruits, but seeing as how I have always loved the Shisiedo original Fem. Du Bois, it is not such a surprise as it is so very similar.

  107. i've had a discovery AND a re-discovery this past week...i re-discovered jayne ormonde's "woman": i'd a sample of it once, which i used up quickly and happily. then i forgot about it somehow. got a new sample, and was reminded how much i like it!

    and my new discovery was "belle du soir", a collaboration (i think?) between le labo and anthropologie. i found it on sale and ordered it on a whim, and i really like it.

  108. Just purchased Houbigant quesque fleurs and quesque fleurs royale. Love them, especially the honey note in the Royale. As for recent dislike, I'm not loving the new Frederic Malle dries van noten (or whatever it is).

    My latest discovery that I know I will love this summer is Parfumeria Generale Yuzu Irata. It is crisp and light, yet complex. I received a small decant of this and I know that I will run out once we have a few days of warm weather. It's yummy and a keeper.

    A major disappointment was Soivohle Tobacco and Tulle. I thought I would love it, but when I dabbed it on I got a pickled note, instead of the tobacco I was hoping for. The odd thing is, that when worn overnight, it is beautiful in the dry-down. Very soft and powdery.

  114. My latest perfume rediscovery is Chanel No. 5. I used to think it smells too powdery and fussy but now it smells creamy and smooth and all sort of loveliness. Thanks for the draw!

    Hello Elena,
    I took a divorce from my signature scent Coco Mademoiselle 3 years ago and now we are again together!This is an eternal love eventually. Now my latest discovery is Shalimar initial by Guerlain but I don´t think my body chemistry likes it. Too bad! I want desperately something spicy,floral,musky and new!With sillage power! DISLIKE: I can't go ahead with angel tierry mugler still.

    Just got a tiny bottle of old Fendi. Love it. I was a teenager in the 80s and for some reason this mature mesmerizing power juice never left my memory. Dr.Nini
