Recommend Me a Perfume : November 2016

Our November “Recommend Me a Perfume” thread is now open. You can use this space to ask any questions about perfume, including fragrance recommendations, and of course, share your discoveries. Bois de Jasmin will return with its regular schedule on Monday, November 28th. In the meantime, please be sure to take a look at our Doctors Without Borders fundraiser, which is a great chance to support a good cause and win some unique prizes. For instance, we have vintage Mitsouko, a full bottle of Chanel No 5 extrait de parfum, niche perfumes, longlost discontinued perfumes, and I’m offering a collection of rare vintages and a perfume class. Thanks to the generosity of this community and our large pool of prizes, 51 53 winners will be drawn.

Recommend Me a Perfume : August 2016

Every two years Brussels unrolls a carpet made of fresh flowers in its main square, the Grand Place, and I have written about my impressions of le Tapis de Fleurs in 2012. This year’s carpet is just as sumptuous, and its theme is Japan–the patterns are reminiscent of kimono embroidery. It’s a fine way to mark summer winding down.

On Bois de Jasmin we’re noting the end of summer vacations with our “Recommend Me a Perfume” thread. You can use this space to ask any questions about perfume, including fragrance recommendations, and of course, share any of your summer discoveries.
