Avant garde perfume?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon4046, Dec 26, 2011.

  1. Anyone got any suggestions for 'different' fragrances? It's hard to internet search something without a starting point...
     
  2. As the tv advert says you could get "ummm" by David Beckham. Presumably he will market " errr" for the ladies.
     
  3. Both perfumes sound amazing...

  5. Thanks Giraffe. Found this site which looked quite interesting/nice.

  6. Bloody Chrome - can't do links on this server.
     
  7. oo, that does look fascinating. Will put it on my wish list. :)
     
  8. I would have recommended Cabochard, by Gres (can't do the accent on the 'e'). It was a wonderful, different fragrance in its day, but they changed the bloody formula and it just doesn't smell the same. :-(
    Bvlgari Black is also a really interesting and very unusual scent to try:

  9. Manashee, I came across Bulgari Black on my internet travels this evening. Don't know how I feel about licquorice, tbh...

    fresh anchovy earrings should be avant garde enough for most of us.
    I will post you some.

    Manashee, what a coincidence! Gres Cabochard would have been my other choice too. Didn't know anyone else had heard of it. I think the difference is that the EDT smells good, but the EDP isn't quite the same. They don't just put more perfume in the EDP, apparently, it is a slightly different fragrance.
    Also like Givenchy Ysatis - worth a try out puff at Boots, perhaps?
    Coffeekid, I'm hoping you've given LurkMuch a false addresss?

    When I am looking at fragrances online, I sometimes click a new one to see how it smells.[​IMG]

    Anyone else do this, or just me?
     
  13. Oh dear, Giraffe. :)

    Just me then [​IMG]
     
  15. Me, me!! I'm a smellaholic - I love reading a description of how a perfume smells and then try to imagine it in my mind's nose.
    You must get that book, giraffe. It's in paperback now. I dip in and out of it all the time and (sad person that I am) make little lists of perfumes that I really want to sniff when I'm next in a big Boots or department store. It passes a happy half hour for me and costs nowt. [​IMG]
    I think you're right about Cabochard, by the way.
