Cleaned and reconfigured my perfume shelves and lo and behold, I found a whole unopened new bottle of SJP Stash oil....lol I love the perfume, but the oil is like nirvana. Its really on a whole other level.

So the sick thing is I don't remember buying this.... :shock: :lol:

Me, my parents, my brothers love perfumes, my parents have a wall dedicated for their perfumes. Me and my brothers always recognized as the best smelling person by our friends. But sadly, my DH hates perfumes and he can’t stand the smell of fragrance. He said it makes him want to puke :cry2: So now I only wear perfume once in a blue moon.. So sad...
Only have 2 bottle of perfumes now, got this bottle more than 3 years ago and see how little I spray it :cry2: the other bottle is newer I got it just because Igot a sample and I love it, even though I know I won’t use it much, I still want to get it.

You have great taste: I love cèdre sambac. And you're a wonderful loving wife! I'm a perfume person as my whole family have been for generations (very conservative grandpa wore cuire de Russie and other Chanel extraits - unisex fragrance before it was a trend!).

I completely get what a sacrifice you're making for your DH!!

HI:

Apparently I have nothing left to wear! Seems, I need a top up! Perhaps a perfume jaunt may be in my future? I'll call it a Mother Day sequel. Prequel. wotever. Can you help, @Arcadian @missy ?

At least my home smells good, thank to Nest candles. @kipari :wavey:

Speaking of smelling good, @Calliecake what are you wearing these days? Any Creed on your list? :wavey:

cheers--Sharon

Oh, I think a visit to the virtual Hermes boutique from the safety of your own delicately scented home is in your near future!!

My X husband couldn’t stand perfume (apparently :roll:).
I wore the same one our whole marriage (it was nice), but I’m SO glad I’m not restricted and now I’m not loyal to any perfume & I love it!!

You are very considerate to your husband. I wouldn’t do that for anyone anymore...

I am so boring @canuk-gal when it comes to fragrances. For the most part I love gourmand.

Now that the weather is warmer my favorite Spring fragrance has come back into my rotation. Hermessence Vetiver Tonka. So light and fresh and perfect for the warmer temps. I wore Vetiver Tonks yesterday and Tuesday.

Today I am wearing (another Hermessence) Brin de Reglisse. Bright and smooth lavender with black licorice. Really good.

So my recommendation would be to try the Hermessence line if you have not. They actually sell sample packs at a reasonable cost so you can try all of them and see what, if any, are FB worthy.

Thats a good recommendation @missy thank you!!! I didn’t know they have mixed travel size, I’ll get 1 set =)2

@GoldenTouch He never told me to not using perfume and he’s OK with me getting $500 Creed perfume eventho he doesn’t understand why a bottle of perfume cost that much :lol: its just a form respecting each other I guess. But over the years I think he’s building more resistance since my DDs love to spray perfume (a really bad smelling one that we got from amenity bag from the plane). I never hear him complain about my perfume lately, maybe because its way better compared to what my DDs smell when they spray tons of that bad smelling perfume:lol: I think I’ll let my DD train him for another year before I throw those bottles:lol-2:

@missy I agree re: Vetiver Tonka -- it's divine. (Alas, my bottle is empty.) Today I'm wearing Alfred Sung Spa, circa 1993. The tiniest spritz lasts all day long. And, really, you wouldn't want to spritz more than that; it's strong stuff.

My 10 year old loves perfume as well. I keep hers under $30 a bottle if I can!

I haven’t smelt Creed perfume but I’m glad he likes it.

@canuk-gal you can try imaginary authors if you haven't yet. I don't know what their situation for shipping is like though. https://imaginaryauthors.com/products/short-story-collection-1

Zoologist has new ones (but of course) and they're in canada https://zoologistperfumes.ca/

Thank you! I will be ordering the sample kit from Zoologist!! I am excited! (and the tip about shipping across the border is relevant....we can't get candles, glasses, etc etc shipped)

I think you'll enjoy it. The owner pretty much does everything including shipping, so you get a nice personal message. Let me know what your favorites are! (I have a few... :roll2: :lol:)

Today I'm wearing my favorite super cheapy Verino VVPlatinum. I'm seeing a few bottles at 16 dollars (I should probably NOT buy another...lol) For those who miss Gucci Envy it is pretty darn close. maybe as close it one could get!

So rare of me wearing perfume twice in a week.... DH never said anything about me spraying perfume now... Maybe he finally can accept perfume after all of these years.. and that’s it have no more perfume to post as I only have 2 bottles of perfume :lol:
I have couple Jo Malone that I never use anymore, I use them to spray my WIC after I cook because my whole house and my clothes smells really bad after I cook. I can’t stand the smell in my clothes so now I spray my WIC with my unused perfume.

Today I'm wearing nothing but Kiehl's Vanilla Cedar Lotion. Its not super strong but its very present if that makes sense.

I always marveled at WHY this was even discontinued....(the spray was fabulous, they should have kept it around!)

Dior jasmin des anges....

Come to think of it: have you tried the Dior exclusive line @canuk-gal ? I personally find the fragrances all well made, special and with a good lasting power...

No Kipari, I have not. I am waiting on some clothing to come in.....then I'll make a trip to Saks and Nordy's. (I don't like going to the shops unless I have multiple reasons.....) Thank you for the suggestion!:wavey:

Keep me posted how you liked them... They're different from the Hermessence line in that the HS are more minimalistic scents. The Diors are more classic perfume-y fragrances to me. I own gris Dior (sandalwood, cedar clean (!!!!) patchouli, rose), Jasmin des Anges y favourite jasmin perfume) and Lucky (Lily of the valley). The Dior lingo for the line is collection privée.... I had forgotten how they called it...
