Bois de Jasmin will return on Monday, October 7th, and today we have our “Recommend Me a Perfume” thread. Autumn has started and there is no mistaking its nutty, damp scent of fallen leaves, musty chrysanthemums past their prime and bitter chestnut shells. Despite the chill and rains, I love the quirky beauty of fall and all of its scents. My perfume wardrobe now welcomes a few favorites that didn’t feel right during the dog days of summer: Kenzo Jungle L’Elephant, Lolita Lempicka and Bulgari’s intensely smoky Black.
My internet connection is intermittent this week, but I will join you whenever I can.
How does it work:
1. Please post your requests or questions as comments here. You can also use this space to ask any fragrance related questions. To receive recommendations that are better tailored to your tastes, you can include details on what you like and don’t like, your signature perfumes, and your budget. And please let us know how your search goes and what you end up discovering.
2. Then please check the thread to see if there are other requests you can answer. Your responses are really valuable for navigating the big and sometimes confusing world of perfume, so let’s help each other!
